MMGaming Game Awards 2017

I think that an awards post for each year is a great idea. Having said that I also think that some awarding bodies are dumb as hell. Like doing awards for a year near the start of the year for instance. Well, I wanted to make doubly sure that 2017 was over before posting this year’s MMGaming Awards, which is why it’s getting posted after the mid-point of 2018… Are you buying this…?

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.
