Watching that after an hour "Gamespot lets play" vid with the dev commenting has really sold me, that and it's only 20 quid on shopto for pc. I just can't resist loot games I'm a complete sucker for them =( plus the combat at eurogamer felt pretty solid.

Yeah, I tried it at Eurogamer as well, and it seemed decent. Already had it preordered on Onlive though (US$35 for it together with Space Marine felt pretty cheap).

Looks decent, but launching a game like this roughly the same week as Skyrim is suicidal.

Indeed. Skyrim>>>>>War in the North.

It's been harshly panned by critics from what I've heard, as a lot of people who have actually bought the game say that it's unpolished but incredibly fun. Gotta say, I'm disappointed about it being unpolished as Snowblind worked on this for almost 3 years (including the development of a brand new engine).

Even though I'm a major LoTR geek, I won't be picking this up until it's on the cheap - which will probably happen sooner rather than later to be fair. Given Snowblind's expertise and how it looked to be shaping up prior to release, I was expecting this to get around the 80 mark in terms of review scores. So I'm very disappointed that it's currently sitting around the 65-70 mark (really thought this would be one of the best LoTR titles to date), but I love me some fantasy action - especially if it's Tolkien - so will pick this up some day.

Probs would have picked it up on release anyway, if it wasn't for Skyrim.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: Yup. Oh and I can't forget to mention how dark it is, and that story, real nice. The dynamic between Jackman and Stewart was superb too. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: I'm glad you enjoyed it. And yes, Wolverine in the comics was always bloody, savage and ruthless. Something the previous movies never did, probably to stay PG-13 - suitable for teens. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @digi_matrix: Looking very forward to it. But no spoilers please. Now I know I will most likely cry at the end. (Which is never a bad thing.) (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @droezelke: No problem, in games like Edith Finch what's most important is story, characters and world settings. It's like movies or a very short TV show/mini series, gameplay isn't as important. (8 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Oh and I loved the violence, yep. I never liked how there was barely any blood in the previous films, impossible when you have someone like Wolverine cleaning house. This is how it's done. (9 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker And I'm so glad I watched the previous X-men movies first, specifically the two Wolverine movies, otherwise some things wouldn't have made sense (9 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Logan was absolutely fantastic. In terms of acting, emotion, character development it's in a different league than the other X-men movies. Fucking loved it. And man, Jackman is a boss! (9 Hours ago)
