News Comments > Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Released
33. Re: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Released Sep 30, 2014, 13:45 Alamar
 
I am enjoying the hell out of this game... The dynamic Sauron's Army stuff is great... Running around killing captains, and dying a few times, is fun... And the one(/two) liners are great for immersion...

The combat is more fulfilling than Batman, maybe only because it includes chopping off heads and other kills... I know lots of people hate the QTE aspect, and the floaty combat, but I'm not sure how you can do 1 vs 20 combat without that, or a lot of OP AOE. I mean, OP AOE is a lot of fun, but if you consider games like the Souls series, you very rarely fight more than 2 opponents (because you're very likely to die : ).

Anyhow, highly recommended ; )

I thought it looked great previously, and then there was a 20% off on Steam... I was tempted, and you know what turned me off? It was $30, not $50... Go figure heh... But I'm like... Oh... Must not have that much content. So we'll see how reviews/comments go, and maybe I'll get it after I'm bored of Warlords and Shadow of Mordor.

I dunno, I don't much care for this QTE-style combat adopted from Screed and Arkham. Instant counters, traversing yards at a time instantly, "press A to do spiffy animation attack"... all makes me feel pretty detached from the action. Wish they'd gone with a more deliberate, tactile system.

I really enjoy the D* Souls games, and would love to play that in a world like this... But that's not seeming likely, so I'll settle for the less interesting combat, for a more interesting environment... When the perfect game/combo comes out, I'll jump on that : )

So if I have 16 GB RAM, and I use my on board video card... Can I give it 6GB, and use the high res textures?

Might be the best looking stop motion film ever : )

this one always looked good to me.. but also im a sucker for over-the-top gore

what i wanna know more about is the part where they say you can "build an army" and take on sauron.. like is there going to be some large scale battles with RTS elemnts or something? or is it just some backgroud thing

In short, you can take over (the minds of) various orc leaders, and it looks like you can get a good (half?) percentage of them on your side, you've got your 'army'... I don't think there's any large scale battle stuff with them. I mean, there's clips of some events with dozens of orcs, but I assume you mean hundreds.

That's a great vid... Lots of information. And shows that the Nemesis system portion is not the entire game heh... That was what had sold me last week (or two), but I'm happy to see the stuff mentioned now.

Sadly, now I'm really looking forward to it, and it'll be a long ~week.

Shame they didn't cancel WOW instead, then maybe we wouldn't be left the mediocre, carebear, grindfest crap we are stuck with today.

Long live UO and AC1 Darktide.

In some way they only have themselves to blame. I used to play MMO's for the thing they did best... open world dynamic PVP in a massive world. Then they dumbed it down so much it became PVP in tiny arena's. Now why would anyone play an MMO for arena PVP, when you can pickup a MOBA and get right into it... without a mindless PVE and PVP point/gear grinds and complete with decent combat.

Now they are off to dumb down the MOBA genre instead. Yay!

WTB Warcraft 4.

Really? You're comparing WoW PvP with MOBA's and you think MOBA's aren't already dumbed down?

I don't mind, I haven't even started the 2nd' DLC. Everyone tells me it's hard as hell and... I'm afraid.

I haven't done the second one yet either, but I had heard it wasn't as hard... Go figure : )

This reminds me that I still have to finish the first one.

Same... But it's been so long, I'd likely have to start over (I like continuity, and my memory has issues)... And then I'd get to around the same point and likely get bored...

Just once, I would like to see the final poker hand winning tournament not be a royal flush, and instead be something realistic, like a three of a kind, or at most, a full house...

I am not a LOTR fan... I mean, I like the movies... But I don't go around gobbling up everything with their name.

Plus, for the most part, just about any game made from movie/book IP is crap...

But I looked into some gameplay yesterday for Shadow of Mordor, and it looks fun... Yes, the combat looks like batman... Climbing shit looks like AC, which is a good thing...

But the way they're doing the advancement, both the rune system, and the Sauron Army part, looks great (mostly the latter). Combine some subterfuge, with some sabotage, some stealth kills, and some direct free for all combat, and I like what I'm seeing.

So I pre-ordered from GMG for 25% off : )

One of the vids that helped is here.

You seriously believe that Minecraft is going to be staying on the PC? Really?

BWWAAAAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA

That was a good one, dude.

wh.....what? It's already on consoles, dude, for quite some time.

Yeah but the point is it won't be on the PC for much longer and become console exclusive. Only an old, unsupported version will work on PCs.
But, yeah, you guys go ahead and keep believing in Microsoft's noble intentions.
I will be laughing my ass off while they turn this into a 100% Xbone and Xbox Live Gold service game.

No business is noble... Businesses make money... Which is why Minecraft will stay on PC...

As for 'Minecraft 2'... Does it matter? There are already a handful of competitors that do it so much better in so many ways... Brand is one thing, but we'll see (hopefully) some of the better products gain more followers.

News Comments > Skyforge Paladin Class Video

This is the first time I recall hearing about this game... And I think it looks fairly good. Not interested enough to go to the site, but if it comes out, and isn't overpriced, I'll take a gander...

I find the Paladin complaints ironic... Warrior/Mage/Cleric/Rogue are staples, and don't seem to get that kind of 'hate'. And really, it's just a name... The interesting parts, to me, are the variety in play styles... Paladin's in WoW play very differently than Paladin's in other games... It's just another recognizable word, where people can assume something faith/holy based, and a sword n board : )

I can see there's a concerted push for 4k gaming being a huge deal and even though I have a 1440p monitor I still prefer to game on a 1080p res screen. I'm sure I'll get there eventually with system upgrades but it's going to be several years from now just from looking at the prices of monitors that I've seen, the inexpensive 4k TV's are all 30hz at 4k.


Only $2500...
