Conan O’Brien tackles Shadow of War in new Clueless Gamer

Falls afoul of a drunken Orc

There is a new episode of Conan O’Brien’s Clueless Gamer series, where the chat-show host, comedian and former Simpsons writer tackles an upcoming title for a little bit of PR, to somewhat amusing effect.

The new episode has Conan try his hand at Middle-earth: Shadow of War, alongside actor/comedian Kumail Nanjiani, who also features in the open-world sequel. Conan gets into a few battles, with varied success, which is kind of reflective of the comedy in these skits.

We also get to hear Nanjiani’s “Orc voice” in action which, unsurprisingly, earns him some ridicule from Conan which Kumail then neatly transfers to the game’s Creative Director, Michael de Plater.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War launches next week, October 10 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
