Why is this allowed to happen?

>>265558717
I think the game looks fun

It actually looks good

It should be at least interesting unless you are heavily invested in the lore. It's gonna rape the lore all over the place.

Personally, I'm not really that attached to the LOTR universe, so I will probably get it.
>>
The comments on the reviews are what really get me.
The comment section sounds like the definition of shilling, except that its EVERYONE.
"Wow I'm glad this game got a good score because I can't wait to play it on my Xbox One!!"
"I guarantee this will be game of the year because of the awesome and innovative Nemesis system!"
"I heard my cousin say you can get 200 hours of gameplay out of this game!"
>>
>>265558717
what went meme?
>>
I'll be honest, I did not have much of any hope for this game. It didn't look like it had an original bone in its body, and seemed so blatantly derivative with its setting. Making up new characters and stories in the LOTR setting just to milk the franchise more does not make me a fan, in fact in pushes me away. The nemesis "feature" just seemed like a crappy gimmick that would get old after the second or third time it happens.

Yet, somehow, this is actually getting good reviews and they're saying that the nemesis thing actually works well. I don't know who to believe, as the game isn't out yet, but so far it seems like Destructoid is the only site with consistently negative things to say about it. It's kind of blowing my mind and making me re-evaluate my negative opinions about it. I kind of want to play it now...
>>
Maybe I'll check it out when it's in the bargain bin in a few months.

It just looks like AssCreed: LOTR edition. I bet it even has the same press X to win gameplay.

In the modern age of "embargo reviews until after the game is out so all you day one purchasers don't know it's shit" are you really going to get upset at pre-release reviews giving some early indication of the game's quality, and thus helping you to make an informed purchasing decision?

>>265561920
How do you know that? The only source of info you've gotten about the game in any way, shape, or form has been video game journalism and you clearly hold no value in that. This could be a 4x space game for all you know from playing it firsthand or public opinion.
>>
Curious to see if my meager 4gb of vram can handle this. Day 1 pirate.
>>
This game will be shit.
Everyone praising it is shilling.
Mark my words, this game will get nothing but hate two weeks after launch.
>>
>>265562173
Because I watch gameplay trailers
Which go like this

"HE'S A HALF WRAITH GUY IS HE COOL AND EDGY YET"

You have to be literally retarded to think all there is out there is journalism, but then again, you're misinformed enough to think video game journalism is quality information, so :^)

also it looks like press x to win until you press x to do ebin shit guise~!!! gameplay, so also fuck that

They suck its cock just because of ONE single new game mechanic that is the nemesis system and even then it's just perfunctory and the game is basically a rehashed BAM HAM Creed.

Not a single thing has changed since #GamerGate. Corrupt faggots are going to shill for devs and publishers and receive various advantages in return.

There is already enough of gameplay out for this turd to judge it and make your own opinion.

So it's generic. Like that's something new. You guys know that call of duty still exists and it still makes Activision obscene amounts of cash, right? AAA is so risk-averse and dull that it's not even worth getting worked up over. If someone had fun playing this game, who fucking cares? Have you guys played it?

can't find the review I read earlier (I think business insider)

-open world, but the two areas you go through are pretty small, can take you two minutes to travel across
-game is short for open world, around 25 hours (not sure if it included side quests)

-story is there for the sake of a story, main character is boring and motivated only by revenge

+orcs and nemesis system are cool
+fighting looks good and doesn't look repetitive
~gameplay is good, possibly hard at times, although it borrows elements from the arkham games
~side quests are a mixed bag as some can be fun, and others seem just for the sake of a side quest

>>265563994
It looks like a boring Ass Creed with LOTR setting. Nemesis looks like a poorly implemented gimmick with no depth that will get old in a couple hours. Combat seems to be easy as fuck and "press X to takedown". It looks terrible and "professional" reviews mean nothing, specially from fucking polygon of all places.

I'm usually one of the last people to automatically assume things are shit here, and call other people shills for having dissenting opinions, BUT.

Even I think the game looked mediocre. LOTR wise it seems like a lorebortion.
If it proves to be more than Assassin's Creed with Arkham melee, maybe I'll think otherwise.

See guys, isn't easier to just have a moderated approach on things?

The gore physics look amazing. You can even see the light reflecting off it. I've always liked the batman combat, but adding gore like this is amazing. Also, saying it's too easy are the people who don't try combos. It's so much more fun if you have combos in it. And people who are saying it's a bad port because of 6 VRAM don't know that's the ultra mode, and that it also includes the high res texture pack. You could easily get ultra on 3 VRAM without it. I do want to see how good it looks in 4K if it supports it with the high res texture pack with the gore. This is my most anticipated game of the year besides Dark Souls 2, but we saw how that turned out. Hopefully this game delivers. Will you be using a controller or keyboard to play it on PC?

Honestly I don't know why anyone cares about tolkien lore at this point. It's become the foundation of the genre and has been equaled and exceeded many times. Why aren't you mad about all the other tolkien games that butchered the lore? because they were bad games? so you're upset that the game is good? grow a pair you little princess.
>>
I'm gonna enjoy it for what it is.
The lore will probably be butchered, but i'm not invested enough in Lotr to care much. The gameplay looks solid. My only fear is that it's going to be too easy which has been mentioned by a few reviewers here and there.

Elves were one of the first if not THE first not godly race to be created and they lived on the origin island seeing the sunree and so fort.
>>
>>265566656
>that's pretty Mary Sue
No it isn't. You still don't understand what it means. Google is your friend.

Mary Sue stories—the adventures of the youngest and smartest ever person to graduate from the academy and ever get a commission at such a tender age. Usually characterized by unprecedented skill in everything from art to zoology, including karate and arm-wrestling. This character can also be found burrowing her way into the good graces/heart/mind of one of the Big Three [Kirk, Spock, and McCoy], if not all three at once. She saves the day by her wit and ability, and, if we are lucky, has the good grace to die at the end, being grieved by the entire ship.

Mary Sue's are self idealized characters. You can't just say an entire race of fictional entities are Mary Sue's, it doesn't even apply to Elves anyway, they aren't good at everything, they aren't liked by everyone, and vast majority of the time they don't affect anything.

It's actually a cool idea.

Basically you can influence/assassinate uruks in their chain of command and cause strife/chaos in the ranks. You can take control of one and have him overthrow his commanding officer or have war break about between many. Also you use their personality traits, etc. to influence them.

Basically it's what Assassins Creed should have been but wasn't because Ubisoft sucks dicks.

because video games are where all the b-stories from big name movies and franchises and long revered old books "new" stories go because no one has any fucking taste

game of the year? sure. because despite how much SJW's cry for inclusivity, and how much people want games to be considered art, they're made for a demographic that is mostly young, naive, and generally have no fucking taste.

think about all the bullshit you liked when you were younger, and try and go back and watch a lot of it. If you don't cringe, you are their key demographic.

true. frodo's resolve is what makes it work. frodo and sam are the only characters that matter in the end because the author himself says that they were to succeed in the end anyway.

Frodo is literally the most useless character in LotR. Maybe i forgot about some things because it's been an eternity since i read the books, maybe the movies made me forget some things, but i can't recall a single useful thing that shithead has ever done by himself. He's pretty much there just so that Samwise doesn't have to carry the ring himself. Asides from that everything is done by him and to an extent Smeagol. God i hate Frodo.

I'm just saying what the author said firsthand in letters to his publisher brah.

I love the books and all but reading the letters really takes away from it all. once you know how much of a raging christfag tolkien was and how literally every fucking thing is an allegory for providence and temptation it just seems less interesting.

The silmarillion is superior to hobbit and LotR even if its the closest parallel to the christian bible.

>>265570190
On this subject, since Tolkien and Lewis were bros, in the final Narnia book, someone got to get into Aslan's Kingdom by just being a good person and helping save the world, despite he didn't know Aslan/praise him like the four kids did.

The immense Christian butthurt at the time over someone getting loved over works and not extreme jesusfaith was enough to actually anger Lewis, a staunch Christian himself.

hit it on the head. the only thing frodo had was the providence from Illuvitar to actually let the ring go, and even then almost fails if not for sam. sam admitted he would succumb to the ring if he was to go it alone and frodo knows he would too without sam.

Sam was the true hero with actual character flaws. frodo was the actual mary sue of the story. as a reward at the end frodo fucking commits sudoku and sam ends up marrying his dream girl, having tons of kids, and becoming the sherriff of the shire.

its pretty obvious who was the real hero.

I'm hoping it turns out to be strategic stealth centered rather than combat centered. Where the goal is using minions and distractions/other stealthy shit to reach your objective, rather than, "Mash attack, run too target" like the more recent Assassin's Creed games have turned into.
inb4 it is combat centric, but with shitty, "Don't get caught/seen" levels like Assassin's Creed. Why are there no stealth games any more with ingame-punishments for failing? It's all meta shit like, restart the level, etc. Why are there no, "You can fight head on, but you're excessively weak, so if you break stealth, fighting head on (and likely losing) is your punishment" rather than just, "You were seen, try again" - I am ready to be disappointed, gonna wait a while to buy this, if I buy it at all.

thats sudoku mang. the uttermost West is heaven bro. the elves can pretty much go there when they are tired of life. they can go sit in the halls of... Mendos? (forgot name) until the end of time and see arda crumble away. Men die and fade away as a gift, they cannot handle what the elves are destined to.

when mortals go there its giving up on life. the uttermost west is now the fucking moon too so imagine the boat going out into the ocean, hitting a point and then sailing to the moon on waves of starlight.

shits whacky but you gotta make the parallel with the uttermost west being heaven at this point.

It's going to be hugely combat centered, pretty much all gameplay has shown that. I know they showed a lot of sneaking, but all i got from that was that stealth was piss fucking easy and enemies have no awareness at all. Personally i'd expect stealth being even easier than AC. Also most of the abilities they've shown are centered around killing enemies in large numbers.

>>265571959
>new thief game
fuck no. Get Dishonored instead, it's a better game overall aswell as a better stealth game.
All the splinter cells up to double agent were good stealth games, conviction was fun aswell but way more combat centered. I've heard the newest one was better but i stopped caring after conviction.

Also MGS V but you probably know that already. And before playing MGS 4 i'd recommend playing 1-3, the plot is convoluted as it is, it ain't gonna get better if you don't know shit about the characters or backstory.

the eagles would refuse and its assumed that the idea of asking something from them is a huge "favor" that gandalph can barely cash in.

the eagles are equal to gandalph (minutely below him actually) just in a different form, and there are certain rules gandalph had to follow on middle earth, you can assume the eagles work under a certain code of ethics, and even helping the mortals the first time was probably pushing it for them anyway.

I assume what he means is that elves are superhuman in beauty, grace, and speed, as well as immortal. Other than that though they're generally selfish dickbags whom everyone hates, they do stupid shit for stupid reasons like jealousy and greed, and the world would be better off without them.

No even being racist, it's the truth. I'm disgusted that they're even considered children of Iluvatar.
