One of Shadow of Mordor’s biggest features is the “Nemesis System,” a mechanic that gradually beefs up unique Uruk rivals for the player. The more you progress, the more menacing your Nemesis becomes, and the more gratifying it is when you finally kill it. But what happens if you go out of your way to avoid nemesis…
He doesn’t have the power of Gandalf nor the snappy fashion sense of Saruman, but Radagast is a wizard with his own charms, which Canvas Cosplay has absolutely nailed here.
It’s one thing to draw or paint a character you like, and another to model them in high definition—as Nimlot26's version of Éomer (his version of the Karl Urban version of Éomer) shows.
Last month, an event called Bitva o Fort went down. That’s Battle of the Fort in English, and it saw hordes of Lord of the Rings fans converge on the village of Radíkov in the Czech Republic to recreate an epic battle between the forces of men, elves and some very well-dressed orcs.
Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd from Back to the Future, Stephen Merchant and Ellen McLain from Portal, Gary Oldman as the game’s big bad and two different Chris Pratt performances—LEGO Dimensions’ definitely got talent.
Just when I thought I was sick to death of seeing these kind of things, along comes a Tolkien tribute to blow my socks off.
Laura Sindall, a fabricator and sfx artist in the movie business, is also one heck of a Lord of the Rings cosplayer. Here’s her Tauriel cosplay, with pics taken in the Black Forest near Pinewood Studios in England.
The Game of the Year edition of 2014’s Lord of the Rings game Shadow of Mordor comes out today. The game itself is excellent. Its DLC, on the other hand, is..less so. Read more about the game in the following articles.
A $50 “Game Of The Year” edition of Shadow of Mordor is coming out May 5th—as in, next week—for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC. No word on last-gen versions. If you haven’t played Mordor yet, this is a good chance to get all its post-release goodies without having to pay extra for the crappy parts of its DLC.
The Bright Lord, Shadow of Mordor's new DLC campaign, promises an epic showdown with Lord of the Rings head honcho Sauron. It was designed in part to address a common fan complaint about the original game's anticlimactic ending. But while it does give players a chance to fight Sauron, I'd hardly call it an epic battle.
One of the few things that wasn't computer-generated in the recent Hobbit movies was all the sweet Middle Earth calligraphy, which was done by the same artist responsible for the most of the books (and maps) of the Lord of the Rings film trilogy.
Osgiliath, capital of the Kingdom of Gondor, was the Kingdom's greatest city before it was eventually abandoned in the Third Age. Now, you can take a walk in Osgiliath, both in its glory days and beyond, courtesy of two fantastic Minecraft builds.
The first thing I thought after watching The Battle of Five Armies was "boy, that's a movie that didn't need to be made". Now, thanks to the power of fans and the internet, we can pretend around half of Peter Jackson's entire Hobbit trilogy never happened.
Shadow of Mordor is one of the best games I played this year. I had high hopes for Lord of the Hunt, its first major expansion, as a result. "New monsters!" I thought. "More nemesis orcs to fight, some of whom ride on top of the new monsters! What could possibly go wrong?" So many things, apparently.
Shadow of Mordor got its first major DLC installment today, Lord of the Hunt. As the name suggests, the expansion is all about monsters—ones you can kill or bend to your will in various ways. Let's take a closer look at some of these gnarly new beasts.
The first major DLC expansion for Shadow of Mordor comes out today, Warner Bros. just announced. It's called Lord of the Hunt, and brings some gnarly new monsters into the mix. The DLC costs $9.99, and comes free with the $24.99 season pass. Watch the new trailer above; I'll have more detailed impressions by tomorrow.
Is there anything more confusing than video game lore? Oh, right: Lord of the Rings video game lore. I could've sworn there were other gamers out who've been having a hard time figuring out what the hell is going on in Shadow of Mordor's main story. Finally, I can say for sure that I'm not alone.
