Thanks a lot, i'll make sure to get it soon. Also I killed the Iron Golem. Now it's time for Anor Londo (Not really I went back to Darkroot Garden). People say it's the hardest part of the game, is it so?

Arguably has the hardest boss in the game: Ornstein and Smough (a two boss fight). There's a bit that a lot of people moan about as being the hardest section to get past, which is a ledge with Dark Knights shooting arrows at you from. I did it first time however but I can see how it might be frustrating.

I think Alien Isolation's lack of save points could ruin the enjoyment for me. Spending 45 minutes carefully navigating and sneaking your way through hostiles to then make one mistake and die and be sent right back to the last save point to do it all again is not cool.


Yup it can get annoying. Sometimes I had to take a detour to a previous save but backtracking is usually safe. Eh, there are a few dumb parts like that though. I'm not sure how far you are but eventually there are enemy humans in the environment that you can use as bait >:) makes some neat replay ability.

I guess I should think about looking for more save points too. Problem is I get so caught up in not being seen that I totally forget about it. But yeah, sounds like I need to play more intelligently.

Ya dummy... not really though those saves are a legit complaint.

I'm also probably spoiled by autosaves on just about every other PC game At least the game isn't a rogue-like.

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. The mechanics of Assassins creed and those batman arkham games combined more or less. Also the same graphics but a bit better. It has a cool ranking system among the enemy chiefs which is where most of the game play comes from. The story was kind of garbage with dialogue either being poorly written, acted or both. . It's not bad, ill give it a 7.8. It's really not worth $50-60 so i'd wait to buy this one if your interested.

One thing is, I probably liked this more because I'm a fan of LotR. It's pretty awesome at first but the Universes content seems to get a little shallow by the end of the game.



My brother just dropped this one off. Hopefully it'll be fun to play at least.

I'm sure you'll have fun with it. The game play is pretty solid for what its worth. My critique might sound a little harsh but there's plenty to enjoy about it

So I tried Shadow of Mordor and played it for about 3 hours.

Didn't like it:

1. Combat system was clunky compared to other similar games. Didn't like the whole executing stunned opponents thing simply cause it prolonged combats too much (e.g. "I've stunned an opponent after hacking him 6 times but can't finish him off cause there's 4 other opponents to finish).

2. The world was boring. Hey look randomly placed ruins. Hey look guards guarding nothing.

3. Getting to any story event was a chore as you had to be on your guard all the fucking time. And if you died, you were back at the starting point and had to do it all again - just ti get to the story event.

Other games dump you near where you died which is usually fine.

4. It was just about fighting but the fighting wasn't that cool or epic. It was a slog. I expect more variety from sandbox games.

5. The constant babble between the ranger and his ghost elf buddy was irritating.

Actually not a big video games fanatic now, but remember that at the time (2005 probably) I fucking loved "Fahrenheit" to the death. Terrific story and huge soundtrack. Who also played it?

Holy shit Underrail looks promising. It's dirt cheap and looks like Fallout with superior gameplay (i.e. turn-based combat on a grid). The RPGCodex preview is lauding it as potentially the best RPG in over a decade (though they are notoriously elitistic). Fuck Wasteland 2, I'm getting this (also have a look if you dig the new Shadowruns):
