With the release of Lord of the Rings game Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor now less than a week away, developer Monolith Productions is ramping up its marketing efforts for the game. Part of this effort includes an "Orc Takeover" of the game's Twitter account, which began yesterday and has provided some pretty hilarious quotes, which you can see below.

Shadow of Mordor launches September 30 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. In the game--which is set after The Hobbit and before The Lord of the Rings--you play as Talion, a Ranger with Wraith-like abilities.

One of the game's marquee features is the Nemesis system, which records your interactions with enemies so that foes will come back at you stronger and wiser than when you previously encountered them.
