    I Just Finished: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

    Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is an extremely satisfying game that ticks quite a large selection of tick boxes whilst honouring the games that inspired it. The lore alone is a big selling point for fans of LOTR fiction ... Read Full Review

    One Doesn't Simply Walk into Mordor. Or Do They?

    Prologue The very first 8th generation game I choose to play is Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Not for 60fps and 1080p, but for what this next generation should be about. After all next-gen is NOT ABOUT RESOLUTUION ... Read Full Review
