    Maria Mancera's Shadow Of Mordor (PC)

    [March 28, 2018 10:51:10 PM]
    This time around I have had a better time with the controls and am able to move around and get things done better. So I started where I left off last time and that is to open cages and let out the Catacombs (I think that is what they are called) and make one of the captains weak. I managed to do just that but I kept on dying because I couldnít get away from the Catacomb in time and it killed me. I ended up getting away from the Catacomb in time, saved some slaves, and caught the captain while he was weakened by the catacomb, but I screwed it up and was killed. After restarting like 10 times I was able to kill one of the captains and a bunch of Orcs/Uruks and it felt good. I was in a big pinch with a lot of my enemies around me, 2 captains, hardly any energy left, and somehow I managed to stay alive and kill one of the captains. Itís kind of funny that I felt really accomplished from just clicking and pushing buttons to slash at my enemies.
    Something that I noticed is that this game gives the player a sense of time. Every time that I restarted, the game didnít. The game doesnít restart, your enemies will get stronger and they will stay that strong until you kill them. The game also changes the time of day when you respawn; it could be raining, sunny, night, you really get a sense that the game is moving forward every time that you are away from it.

    So I spent most of my time this time around trying to figure out how to actually play the game, and get through missions. So I died about 3 or 4 times before actually figuring out how to fight the Orks/Uruks and the captains. I actually finished the first objective, and killed one of the captains. It was actually harder than I thought it would be, I didnít know that clicking and pointing would be so hard to do! I havenít played a game like Shadow of Mordor before, and I find that when I defeat my enemies there is definitely a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment when you kill the captains or their lackeys. It is actually really fun to slash away at your enemies. But going back to the part of the game play, I was able to rescue the hostages and I find out that one of Talionís betrayed comrades has some information for me on who I need to talk to about the Black Hand of Sauron. That person or, I should say Uruk, is named Ratbag and I need to free him from prison. I was able to set him free and get some info on who is my next target is, as well as his weaknesses. I am then tasked with keeping Ratbag safe from his captures, which I did. I then needed to sneak around without being caught to open some cages, but I couldnít figure out how to do that, so I left it off there and I will leave it until the next log.

    For this round I decided to play Shadow of Mordor. I recently took a class on The Lord of the rings, so I am kind of excited to learn more about the lore, and just have fun going through the game! In this game play it was more cut scenes to get the player settled into the situation that Talion (whom you play as) is in. You learn that his entire family gets massacred by Orcs. Talion is alos killed by the Orcs, but he doesnít get the opportunity to move onto either the land of light or dark, he is stuck in between. Talion learns that in order to move on, he needs to find the Black Hand of Sauron and destroy it. The player moves onto some more gameplay. I got some intel on what my next mission was, and that is to find an Orc named Kimbul, I believe. I spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to actually move around. I donít really play slasher games, and I am definitely not used to it. There is quite a bit moving pieces, so I still need to figure out how to play this game. I died on a mini mission trying to save some humans that were enslaved, and apparently made the orcs stronger. That is where I left off and I hope to be able to advance some more later on.
    A few thoughts I had on this game while playing it was how the cut scenes showed very raw footage of the violence. I have no problems with violence, but it is definitely something to think about when it comes to the ethics in this game.
