Uncompressed audio.

AKA fucking laziness/anti-piracy tactics. Though chances are that somebody pirating the game would have a tonne of other games to play while they wait for the torrent, so they do nothing but piss off somebody who bought the game.

And after a while you get sick of that.

>The thing that people liked was playing with the Nemesis system

That requires for you to actually die, which is borderline impossible.

I liked it. It was basically a reskinned Asscreed + orc genocide simulator.

>>322679261
You pretty much have to turn off the combat prompts and ramp up the difficulty if you want to actually die. Which shouldn't be required.

It's a seriously shitty game so don't waste your time.

The whole Nemesis System relies on you somehow being bad at an Assassin's Creed style game so you won't ever deal with enemies ranking up unless you die on purpose. And then they get stupid broken where they only have one weakness.
>>
>immune to stealth

>slayer of beasts, or someshit

Only time game is hard is when a warchief has some stupid immunity. I had fun with it, don't expect much. 5/6 out of 10. Short as fucl if you don't waste time fucking around with the nemesis system. The story is awful and the final boss is literally a QTE. I didn't even bother with bright lord dlc.

If you already have it and you didn't pay too much for it(it's been cheap for fucking ever, even before GOTY version released,) don't feel too bad. You'll still have some fun with it, in all likelihood.

The game plays well, and it has a lot of good ideas. It's just pretty short and there's not really a lot else to do outside of the short story(dlc stuff, but that's basically more of the same.)

Mordor isn't shitty per-se. It's just Wasted Potential: The Videogame.

Help
>>
>>322684563

Having actually paid attention to steam downloads, most games on Steam are compressed when you download them, whereas most pirate releases aren't compressed, so a Steam version is downloading maybe 35gb or so compared to 50gb for the pirate release + 50gb to store the ISO.

Just pirate it. I am sure you can find an 8 gb torrent.
Devs who do this don't deserve your money. Shadow of Mordor isn't that good anyway. It's poor man's Batman and Assasin's Creed clone in terms of gameplay. The writing, characters, voice acting and that kind of stuff is just cringeworthy.

Beyond uncompressed PCM having nonexistent CPU overhead, lot of it probably boils-down to the fact that it's also saving producers the cost of licensing a codec

its less of an incentive to get you to buy it, but more of a way to discourage pirates on toasters.

>+50gb to store the ISO
Why would I do that instead of installing the game right away and deleting the ISO afterwards?
I am glad that steam takes that hard work of deleting a file right away because I would very likely end up "storing" it for reasons.
What a relief.
>>
Picked this up the other day for $9 and finished it last night. OK game but I'm glad it was only ~13 hours long because it was getting very repetitive.

Surprisingly, the size of it isn't massively inflated by fmv and audio. Of my 42gig installed, only 8gb if video and 3.5gb is audio (which is mostly because they include 7 languages).

is very fun, but expect to kick a lot of orc ass w/o really earning the right to do so
>>
>>322678476

It was a fairly competent dude killing simulator. You were able to kill dudes in different ways. The nemesis system sometimes meant you had to kill a dude differently. It was pretty good for what it was.

Honestly, I think the attempt at the nemesis system is a great thing. It was a test run. Hopefully, developers learn from this run, and make it better and expand upon it. A system where the actions of the player make real, lasting changes to the game world outside of scripted events.
>>
>>322678961

Dude should watch his sodium intake.
>>
>>322678476
the Nemesis system was awesome, felt like one of the few truly player-reactive systems in a game. What really killed it for me was when an orc would get his head chopped off, and come back with an eye patch
