    Middle-Earth: Shekels of War




    So my lasting memory of the last game was it was great, a bit limited in scope but a good amount of fun. And I was constantly avenging Tron from all these immune to all attacks bosses he seemed to generate.

    This one seems a bit out of the classical Middle-Earth scope but if it's more of the same with large boss fights and more scope etc then I'm down.

    Edit *lol I botched the title, go me.*

    First one was solid fun. Will play if reviews are good. Probably wait for a sale including all DLCs in a year or so.
    Dat backlog.

    DLC for the MESM are either purely cosmetic or additional, separate campaigns.

    Looks great tbh. Any iterative improvement on the stellar Shadow of Mordor is welcome to me!

    The old game had a revenge system where you could hunt down the orcs who slew your steam mates. I just remember two of those guys being from you were stupidly tough bastards with sneak attack immunity, combo immunity, wraithstrike immunity, brand immunity, animal killinging jobbos who wrecked face. Like all of the strenght perks no weaknesses.


    Stopped trying to avenge you after facing those two

    Edit *gameplay reveal on the 8th, will post links when I see em*

    Oh cool, I didn't know about that feature. I didn't play that much but really should go back to it at some point.

    I'm not sure why people loved Shadow of Mordor so much, sure it was polished and fun, but quite shadow in both storyline and gameplay. Just mindless orc slaughter.

    Unless this improves on those significantly I'll pick it up when it's $30.

    That's like calling Doom Meh. (not implying this was as amazing as doom but still)

    Really polished good gameplay with the awesome nemesis system, don't really need much more to make a great experience.

    It's not a $60 experience though, heck I think I bought Doom for like $20?

    Attitude like that is what brings us bland pointless open world games with no soul from Ubisoft.

    I'd love to buy more good games like Doom at the initial price, sadly I'm a student, but still...

    Meh. I would have been more interested if they'd done something with the real story. I mean, it's not as if there's a lack of stuff to work with, without inventing new fluff that doesn't even add up.

    Cause it would be a better use of the IP in my humble opinion. Compared to the original stuff, this story just feels like a hackjob.

    But the main story's been done in a million games in a million ways, just let it go. The world is a great setting, lets have some fun with it.
