Monolith says Shadow of War's end fight won't suck

Maybe the strongest praise for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor necessitates pointing out its most glaring flaw. The game was a darling, managing to please fans and earn critical acclaim. All of that in spite of the fact that the final b...

Cast your Shadow of War onto foes online!

I know for awhile there, I was worried that Middle-earth: Shadow of War was going to be a solo excursion. I mean, at every possibly opportunity, I want multiplayer modes. I especially love them in typically single-player games, because the ...

Uh oh, Middle-earth: Shadow of War has a Balrog

In Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Gandalf stands tall in front of a Balrog and boldly proclaims "You shall not pass!" It's an important moment because Gandalf probably should've died right then and there. Like, if you yell ...

Here's two dang seconds of Middle-earth: Shadow of War

Even though the video says it's a paltry five seconds long, the meat is actually even less. It's two seconds. Orc looking like he wants to fight, ranger riding a dragon, everyone yelling. Wham, bam, thank you ma'am, we're out. But, this te...

8-4 won't be handling Xenoblade Chronicles 2's localization

It's a bit weird for me that we're getting a new Xenoblade Chronicles game in the first year of the Nintendo Switch. Barring any unforeseen delays, we'll be returning to this wonderfully expansive sci-fi world once more before the end of 20...

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is coming to the Switch

Monolith Soft is bringing the next installment in the Xenoblade series to the Nintendo Switch. There's no release date yet other than "2017," but it sure looks purdy, and I always love a JRPG on a new console. Oh, and Yasunori Mitsuda is be...

Xenoblade team is working on Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Forget the new "NX" hardware, Nintendo devoted just about all of its E3 to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (in order to hopefully sell the NX when it launches next March). And the huge, open-world game is taking all hands.  Mon...

Of course there will be a Shadow of Mordor sequel

The Internet's Big Thing Today isn't as exciting as The Internet's Big Thing Today usually is because today's topic is utterly predictable. The likes of Nintendo controller tree conspiracies and the arrival of virtual reality are inter...
