LOTR War in the North explains itself

LOTR War in the North explains itself

The developers of Snowblind tell us a bit more about The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, which will give you another chance to dive into the world imagined by Tolkien and be a part of it.

Agandaur, the game's antagonist, definitely looks like something Tolkien would imagine. Very impressed with how they're handling the lore - which, as a Tolkienite, is very important.

Hopefully we'll get more gameplay videos soon.

LOTR movies are my top favorite, period!

But when it comes to games, all of them have failed, IMO, I hope this one is THE LOTR us fans has waited for.

The only question I got really is if we can customize your appearence, outfits, equipment...if thats the case, damn nice.

With Dragon Age 2 coming out I really hope this one delivers.

But the game seems to be quite far off, so I hope they make it good and take their time considering 2011 is filled with awesome games there is no rush.

Is it a button masher? God I'd love something like this with RPG elements, had a lot of fun playing the old Xbox game co-op.

Not exactly; it's as much an RPG as it is an action game, as opposed to those old Xbox games - which I absolutely loved by the way.

Think Diablo/Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, except with a closer camera perspective and more elaborate combat moves.

That sounds good, really hopeful about this one.

    alimokrane So many things happen and half the time, you dont know what on earth they are talking about.. I didnt see the movie nor watch the animated shorts... was I supposed to... (23 minutes ago)

  • alimokrane
    alimokrane I am not sure input lag is the correct term for what I want to say.... I think it's an animation issue where you push the stick forward but it takes Noctis a good couple fo seconds to start moving.... (25 minutes ago)

    Tiz @alimokrane: It's actually the only FF I've completed, but it's not my favourite FF story at all. (27 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane Combat is mess, story is a mess, and dont get me started with the input lag and the stupid animation decisions... geez! (29 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @alimokrane: Ardyn as an antagonist just straight sucks. He says a whole lot of things without actually saying anything. I still wanna go back and do all the harder dungeons but I'll wait till later. (29 minutes ago)
