Late Gamer Plays Shadow Of Modor

A Review By Hidai Moya

I didn’t mind that this blatantly imitates ‘Assassin’s Creed’ & “Arkham”, after all if the mechanics work why change them?
However what’s not imitated is their creativity in making a satisfying open world & encountering meaningful quests.
For a game based on the imagination of Tolkien it has a lot to live up to & honestly its few redeeming quality were its Orcs & Uruks who have terrific dialogue & are vividly ugly & the voice acting of “Talion” & “Celebrimbor”.

Mordor itself fails at feeling like an organic open world. Instead it feels like an open air jungle gym. The side quests are easy & you become very overpowered very quickly robbing you the feeling of a real challenge.
The story is meager & though the fight animations are good, especially when decapitating.
However, it doesn’t add too much of a satisfying experience.
Grade B-

The Geeks’ Watch – Episode 157 The Mandalorian Ch 7 + 8; Watchmen Eps 8

“The future comes, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall miss no game, withhold no news, report all rumors. I shall wear no jerseys and plead allegiance to no side. I shall live and die on my webpage. I am the word in the darkness. I am the watcher of the tv. I am the megaphone that informs the realms of geek. I pledge my hands and name to the Geek’s Watch, for geeks and all the geeks to come.” John, Mitch, Jess, Stephen, and Elizabeth talk about their week’s watch, then over to ‘The Mandalorian’ Chapter 7 ‘The Reckoning’, Ch 8 ‘Redemption’ & the HBO series ‘Watchmen’ episode 8: ‘See How They Fly’.

Late Gamer Plays Batman Arkham Knight

A Review From Hidai Moya

In many ways this is the mother of all Batman games. As the Scarecrow & the Arkham Knight practically obliterate Gotham Batman must suit up one last time to stop them.
From the map size to its bombastic end game story & grandiose set pieces this game really pulls out all of the stops. And let me just say for the record I thoroughly loved its implementation of the Batmobile. It totally fulfilled my childhood dreams about driving it & this gave that to me in droves, it was everything I ever wanted.
Gotham has never looked this amazing before with its varied districts & towering skyline & I loved flying over & driving through it. It wasn’t until the finale though that I felt somewhat let down.
The Arkham Knight deserved far more exposition than he got & leaving him at the point where the game did felt undeveloped. I also didn’t appreciate the teaser nature of the finale. Either be a conclusive end or don’t be. Also for an epic open world game of this nature I actually thought it was too short as well.
I could’ve easily spent more time in Gotham.
Grade B+
