If there is one thing we would increase from the original, it is the variety of things to stealthily kill or ride from Shadow of Mordor. The latest trailer shows us the new monsters, and it includes a (YOU SHALL NOT PASS!!) Balrog, among other things that will only wind up leaving a stain on our daggers.
If that sounds a little too easy, there is a monster in the trailer that even makes Celebrimbor wets his pants a little. He tells Talion to kneel, and we are pretty sure that after you are dead you do not have to kneel for almost anyone.
We look forward to pushing our luck with the more deadly denizens of Mordor when Middle-earth: Shadow of War burns up space on our hard drives on October 10th.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
