The Lord of the Rings: War in the North may be the Tolkien experience gamers have been waiting for, but if you're not quite sold don't expect to find a demo in the usual spots. OnLive currently has an exclusive on a 30 minute trial version of the game. So, if you have a desire to bludgeon a few orcs into a sanguine pulp before you decide if this one is worth a purchase or not, you'll have to grit your teeth and play via the almighty cloud.

War in the North hit North American shelves yesterday and will be out in Europe by this time next week. While the game will be available on the mainland on November 9th, unfortunately, UK audiences will have to wait until the 25th to get their hands on the copy. Until then you'll just have to enjoy the demo I suppose.

For some reason I'm more excited about War in the North than most other games in the coming months, and the only other person I know who seems similarly excited is Liam. There's just something about kicking back and action-R...more

War in the North depends on the power of three

As we've learned from the hit magical drama of the early 2000s Charmed, nothing can defeat the power of three; unity trumps individual power. That fact remains in Lord of the Rings: War in the North. Dwarves, Elves...more

Etrian Mystery Dungeon is a quirky spinoff in line with series legacy

Xenoblade Chronicles X shows off dynamic weather, day-night cycle

Day and night cycles aren't new, but it's a pretty one at least. Actually, thinking on it, more RPGs (particularly Japanese RPGs) could benefit from a day and night cycle just for the perceived visual variation on the hours ...more
