We were highly skeptical of an open-world Third-Person Action Lord of the Rings game from Monolith, but honestly we felt like we had a lot of right to be. But after playing it, Ross and I are both super surprised about how well Shadow of Mordor has turned out. With Shadow of Mordor's arrival you can tell that video games are actually happening again, both good and bad, but it's finally nice to have some interesting stuff to talk about again. Examples of such that we discuss on today's podcast include: D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Destiny, Neverending Nightmares, Forza Horizon 2, and quite a bit more!
Thanks for listening!
