Shadow of Mordor review – Loot box? What’s a loot box?

Well, push some ecstasy up me bum and call me Molly, Shadow of Mordor got a sequel. This was something of a surprise to me because honestly while I knew Shadow of Mordor received a decent amount of critical praise and sales, I also got the impression this was mostly because it was just a bad year. I never realised it reached the levels worthy of it starting a franchise! I’ll also admit that while I was moderately hyped for Shadow of War, a lot of the early media reports (particularly the loot box controversy) killed it for me. Even with all those insistences that it was bigger and badder! In the meantime, I was still rather happily trucking through Shadow of Mordor and so I guess now is the ideal time to be a look at what started off this new, slightly odd, series.

The Hobbit Movie Trailer

I had to post this. I’m sorry it’s not related to games. But it is simply necessary. No, more than that… It is absolutely VITAL I make a little post here to tell you that The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien is finally nearing completion! An announcement trailer was released on the 19th by Warner Brothers Entertainment and I have genuinely not been this excited about a film in a very long time. This for me is the Skyrim of films and you can check the trailer after the jump.

Lego Lord of the Rings

Now that we have the serious stuff out of the way, it’s time to talk more about Gaming! So yeah! As the title and picture suggest, there is a Lego: Lord of the Rings Game in the making and it will be coming out next Summer. Now I’m not jumping up and down with excitement, but I would like to point out that I played the first Lego: Star Wars and if they have kept the same formula from that then this would probably be a right laugh to play. Because yes… I enjoyed the original Lego Star Wars… Wanna fight about it?

LOTR: War in The North

AHHH GOD. Finally! Some worthy news. I was beginning to get worried we would have nothing interesting to post today. Anyway here is a new trailer for LOTR: War in The North which is a large scale RPG coming in the next couple of months.
