I haven't gotten around to the first one yet but I look forward to reading about how they are expanding on the nemesis system. Tying it to online so you can avenge your friends would be sweet (if they haven't done it already).
Really thought I'd love this coz I'm obsessed with Lord of the rings - but just couldn't get into shadow.
I didn't get the combat mechanics - can't remember the exact mechanics - but don't you have to chop the bosses heads off to properly remove them from nemesis system? I killed them outright yet they kept coming back - just didn't get it!
(Was rushing the play through so I could play blood borne)
Awesome, now if they can just fine tune the campaign now so it works in tangent with the nemesis system instead of the other way around that would be a great improvement. Also actual boss battles would be a welcomed edition, I have no desire to quick time event Sauron again to death. Still enjoyed the crap out of the first game however, just needs some adjustments.
A game shedding light into the travels of these two mysterious wizards could be compelling. They are barely referenced in the lore, but there were artifacts of them in Shadow of Mordor to find which was one of my favorite moments in the game as I have always been facisnated by them. http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Blue_Wizards The Blue Wizards (or the Ithryn Luin) were two notoriously mysterious characters of Middle-earth, so-named because they both wore sea-blue robes. They were only hinted at in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, where Gandalf and Saruman, respectively, say there are five Wizards. However, other writings of Tolkien have more to say. In Tolkien's Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age we are told that aside from Curunír (Saruman), Mithrandir (Gandalf), and Radagast, there were "others of the Istari who went into the east of Middle-earth, and do not come into these tales."
Shadow of Mordor is prime candidate for a sequel. They have the core system in place now which everyone loved, so all they really need to do is iterate, make the world a bit more interesting to play around in and it'll be gold.
Great! The first had ridiculously fun combat and handled hordes of orc really, really nicely. The world was extremely blah, though, so like many others I'd love to see something a little more engaging in that department.
Kinda wish they would work on a new IP. I really did not like the game at all. There are some very good ideas of the game but there have not been too many games I have tried where I wanted to quit an hour or two into it.
