the worst part about this game is really the bosses

I had more memorable encounters with randomly generated uruks than any of the bosses

if your game has something like that maybe you should consider not putting fixed bosses there at all

Fuck, I STILL dip back into Shadow of Mordor just to rampage all over a bunch of orks. They're so fucking meaty, killing them never stops being fun.
Branding was boring and I wish you could remove it, I just wanted to drain to pop heads, I don't care about having ork minions.

This game was definitely what I would consider surprisingly good. I periodically pick it up and slaughter some Orcs for fun. The animations were excellent compared to the floaty, unsynced garbage AssCreed has been serving up for a few games now. I'm a little embarrassed for Ubi saying it, but Shadow of Morder is easily the best Assassin's Creed game I've played in a long time.

Can't wait for the sequel, and I'm really hoping that the nemesis system gets implemented by more open world games, it was a lot of fun.

I do think it needed some tweaks though. You shouldn't be able to convert anyone high up in the chain until very late in the game, forcing you to convert low levels and then help them make their way up in order to have a warchief under your control. Also you should really need to force some intrigue before being able to have any sort of chance to defeat higher ups. Being able to pretty easily murder everyone with really no need for help kind of dulled the puppetmaster feeling they had going.

>>324123442
Wolfenstein definitely
Well written, gunplay was tight, decent amount of hidden goodies to pick up despite being fairly linear

Had a lot more fun with it than Fallout 4 after getting both at Christmas. Now have FC4 and Mad Max that I need to play to compare to.
>>
I want a spinoff where you actually play as an orc.

No huge designs of crushing Sauron or anything, you're just some orc in some camp and you gotta fight your way up while watching out for people trying to usurp you.
Same nemesis system and shit, but when you die, that's it for that orc. Instead of coming back, you just start playing as some other nameless orc with equally lofty goals and you gotta scrabble your way up again.

I have a question for you guys. Is this a common thing in Shadow of Mordor that you eventually have that cunt boss ork that's always on your back whenever your health drops low?
>>
>>324127554

Making your game have just a modicum of challenge doesn't make it Dark Souls, friend. Darksiders 2 has the same feel as SoM, but without the invulnerability and brainless spamming.
>>
>>324129503
Yo here's my review of this game. Check it out, its super easy fighting 3 basic orcs with my character thats finished the game. Watch how easy it is for me to kill this power level 8 orc captain

As a semi-pro gamer I give this a 2/10

Peace out.

there's no jumping puzzles, climbing is faster and simpler in SoM because it's just a means to an end
it also doesn't have dungeons or object puzzles the way Darksiders does, which is really more like a Soul Reaver sort of game than an Asscreed style game

further the guy's just an elitist clown and needs to play up how easy the game is
he's also playing easymode by leaving hit/dodge/counter indicator symbols on so he doesn't actually have to pay attention to the crowd or his surroundings

anyway, if you haven't actually played SoM, he glosses over a number of details:
>as mentioned, onscreen indicators are easymode, should and be turned off if you think it's too easy
>you can't just spam counters; a missed counter leaves you open and vulnerable for a moment
>you CAN spam dodge (some captains are immune to being dodged over) but you sure won't get anywhere since you're not doing damage
>captains can have all kinds of invulnerabilities, strengths, special abilities, etc., which encourage or even require special approaches. many of the overly simple methods he demonstrates -- especially spamming counter/attack -- would not work on them. his tactics would not work if an archer was raining explosive arrows on him for instance
>the game rewards methodology, so it's not just "did you kill an orc" but also considers how you did it
>even the fodder enemies eventually come in varieties that would counter what he's displaying
the combat by and large IS pretty easy, but the game is fun regardless. I mostly just go for style points myself. I could spam throwing daggers all day or I could do something actually fun and cool

anyway this isn't even his first video on the topic, both feature him slaughtering groups of introductory enemies with literal endgame powers

it's a singleplayer game and ultimately you can play how you want but if this guy wants to employ the cheapest, dullest tactics and then complain the game's no fun that's kind of on him

Felt like 2 really dropped the ball, but 1 was great.

I wish enemies, you know, reacted to you more. This isn't a world where supernatural shit is supposed to be common, so when you fight regular-ass thugs with your dark demon powers it feels like they should be a lot more shaken than they are. Instead they just sorta shrug it off.

>>324122660
I just wish it had a harder difficulty. Passing time or intentionally dying just to build up the orks strength got old quick.

>>324123442
Wolfenstein was great. Dying light's game play was solid, it's what dead island should have been, but the story was awful.

>>324124704
It's okay, again too easy, and you're basically doing the same thing over and over again.
>>
>>324123623
This game was such bullshit with throwing 100 dudes at you at once. The literal definition of artificial difficulty.
>>
>>324131698
its amazing
one day i realized that its my favorite game ever, i cant get enough and i never get bored with it, i pretty much replay it every year

it has three classes, but every single one is completely different and has a unique distinct playstyle, and the story differs also for each slightly

as in the world is the same, however you visit some in different circumstances and your presence in one playthrough changes the situaton respectively

for example as a fledgling wizard you run away from necromancers' assault on the wiz tower, as a conjurer you visit the tower while its being overrun by ogres, and as a warrior you go to annihilate the wizards yourself
and its the same with most locations up until the last third of the game
>>
>>324122660
I've been playing this again to get 100% the past couple of days, surprised how good the Linux port is. But the game is very easy, I hadn't noticed the storm of urfael or whatever skill in the tree before, but unlimited executions for like 30 seconds is RIDICULOUS. Most of the fun in the game really comes from how juiced out the animations are or just fucking around with stuff like having 5 branded body guards fuck their warchief up.

I would like to see a sequel with an added hard mode or something.
