    One thing I forgot to mention in my other entries is that there is a pretty cool leveling up system like there is in a lot of other games. You can also unlock portions of the open world map and then fast travel to places. When you go around around the map and kill enemies that have slaves, you are able to free the slaves and they thank you and what not. You also have to worry about larger beasts that try to attack you when they see you. The pretty cool thing about that is that you are able to basically posses them and then ride them around. While you are riding them around you can attack enemies pretty easily with them. Another small mission that I came across is the mission in which you make a deal with an orc that is captive. You go into his brain with the character's weird powers and it takes you to the war chief ranking page thing. Then you free him and he helps you by leading you to the enemy you want to kill. He is a creepy little thing. His name is Ratbag. How charming.

    Well, I have finally met Gollum, my absolute favorite character on all Lord of the Rings characters! He is a creepy little dude and I had to follow him around into a cave even though he didn't want me to. I didn't know he was going to be, but I really like that he is in this game. The game has a pretty cool mechanic that is used to follow Gollum. It is like this other worldly sense that the main character acquired at the beginning of the game when all the crazy stuff went down. When playing, you are able to use this sense to see Gollum's foot prints so you can find him after he runs away from you. He then leads you into this cave where there are more enemies to fight while you search for him.
    After I completed that mission and learned what I needed to learn from Gollum, I did some more of the side quest type things where you basically are liberating outposts similarly to the Far Cry games. Though, I still think that the Far Cry games made the outposts tie into to story of the game much more smoothly. With that said, I still enjoy these side missions.

    Normally I don't get too into these types of games, but Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is pretty cool! The things that I found interesting about it were the ranking system of the enemies and the way they move around on the virtual board. You see it when you die, and each time you die, the enemy that killed you gets a stat boost. What I learned is to not take on the hardest enemy first because you will die over and over again while that difficult enemy just keeps getting more and more difficult. It's funny, the enemies recognize you each time to go back to try and kill them after they have killed you, as well. The other things that I really like about the game is the stealth and the combat system. I have always been a huge fan of stealth in games. The death animations are pretty cool, too. One thing I've noticed about the game that I wasn't super keen on is that the enemies roaming in the open world feel distant from the actual storyline. Maybe they will start to tie in a little better as I progress in the story.

    After going back to the guy to let him know that I killed the griffin, he revealed where Yennefer went and it wasn't very far away. She turned up sooner than expected, though. This was after I had to ride away with the griffin head still tied on the Roach, and that is probably quite smelly. We also killed some guy in a bar, so that was fun. Everyone was very frighted. The guy that wanted the griffin killed offered some money. I'm wondering what sort of things happen when you take or don't take money that is offered to you. I also wonder if it matters who is offering the money. If I had to guess, I would assume that taking money from poor people would have negative effects later on, but taking money from rich people wouldn't be so bad. I guess I'll find out. Some poor guy got whipped pretty hard for delivering moldy grains, so that was a little sad. People were so mean back in that time!
