    I wonder if Talion ever been mistaken for someone else and dragged to a children's birthday party? Just picture him surrounded by small children wearing cardboard birthday hats.

    You know, the nemesis system is truly great. I thought for sure we'd see it copied in an open-world crime game by now, or maybe the thugs in an Arkham game, but so far nothing.

    I know, right? Shadow of Mordor was the true next-gen game to come out solely because of the Nemesis system. Why no one has been willing to emulate its creation since then is beyond me. Instead we got like fifty Telltale stories...

    It's like Cordana Felsong in WoW. We should have known she was working for the Legion. She had fel right there in the name.

    I got stuck on that one near the end, I'd managed to create a warlord who was basically immune to everything, (Fire, Combos, Archery, Stealth.) and he could call reinforcements as well >.<

    Is it just me, or is there something oddly dignified looking about the expressions and facial bone structure of the two orcs in the third panel? Like, if Mike wanted to draw two haughty aristocrats he could totally trace them and then just draw the appropriate costumes from the neck down. Maybe a top hat for the one on the right, a monocle for the one on the left.

    If you're curious about my icon; it's an update of the early Lego Castle theme's "Black Falcons" faction.

    Telltale will remember that.

    Mordor was def the best game the year it came out and I suspect it will be the best game of this decade.

    I introduce it to everyone I can and pretty much everyone who sees it says "that is fucking awesome!"

    In the newspost, it says they were playing it again to tell how much a game they were familiar with was improved by the PS4 Pro.

    I am wondering if we could write little fleshed out bio descriptions of the Orcs generated in our games of Shadow of Mordor? Where would we put that, is it considered fan fic?

    My favorite of all the captains are "the Mad".

    BUTTONS! STICKY GLUE!

    The worms are in my head and they wiggle.
    Wiggle-wiggle-wiggle.

    I may have lost it when I first saw... who am I kidding.
    I still lose it for that last line every damned time.
