Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Walkthrough

Gamespot has posted on their Youtube channel a Gameplay Walkthrough video of the exciting new game MIDDLE-EARTH: Shadow of Mordor. The video is thorough but brief and does it’s job to wet your appetite. Needles to say, I’m already pre-ordering this bad boy for the PS4 on Amazon (Click here to do so now). The game rocks impressive visuals rendered by a next-gen engine, and it’s completely noticeable from the tiniest details on the main character to the lightening effects. MIDDLE-EARTH: Shadow of Mordor will be available on PC, Xbone, 360, PS3, and Ps4.

The story is set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

Game Review: "Slender"

“Slender” is a free indie-developed psychological horror/survival horror video game released in June 2012 for PC and Mac. The game is based on horror creepypasta, the Slender Man.

LOWDOWN:
Lost in the forest, you seek out the lost 8 pages of the manuscript with nothing but a flashlight. Written on these 8 pages are parts of a story of the local internet myth, Slender Man, a man who simply follows and watches you, slowly entrancing you with his stare, driving you to insanity until you can do nothing but stand there and stare yourself to death. Welcome to the world of internet freeware game Slender from Parsec Productions.

Slender Man is an entity that follows the player. He resembles a tall, skinny man dressed in a dark-colored suit with a featureless pale, white face. Slender Man appears far away at first, and proceeds to get closer with every additional note that the player collects. He will also teleport to catch up to the player, and may even fully disappear from view at times. Nowhere is safe, as he can show up anywhere at any time, though he is often found trailing slightly behind the player. As the Slender Man gets nearer, the camera’s recording will start to become distorted. If the Slender Man gets too close, the screen will fade to complete static, the Slender Man’s face will appear on the recording, and the game will end. 

REVIEW:
Slender is a short game that is graphically on par with a high school gaming project from 2001, however do not let that deter you. One part Alan Wake, one part atmosphere of Fatal Frame, you are on the edge of your seat as you seek out the manuscripts. This game is entirely built upon the tension it creates as you walk around, there are no attacks, no special moves or fancy cut scenes. Slender relies entirely on your fear. It is just you and the ever watching eyes of the Slender Man. Slender, it is without a doubt, the scariest game I’ve ever had the pleasure of playing. Just finishing the brief game’s only task (find all 8 notes) is a marathon of mental perseverance. I wanted to give up on more than one occasion because I was so creeped out. The game is incredibly simple and I think that’s part of its genius. You walk through the woods, abandoned buildings and stranded farm equipment in search of eight notes left behind by somebody. Each note reveals a little bit more about the Slender Man and each note picked up results in an increase in intensity. In terms of audio there’s a sound of your character’s heartbeat, her footsteps, wind blowing through the trees and that’s about it. You’re given a flashlight, no way of defending yourself, and the ability to sprint. The game is set in a first person perspective, making it all the more horrific. Slender does what most horror movies almost never get right: pacing, tension and atmosphere. I don’t want to give anything away because this game relies entirely upon the tension created and the payoffs, but if you shut the light off, turn up the sound and focus you will have a wonderful time.

OVERALL:
the game is free to download and free to play at www.slendergame.com. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to burn an hour or two playing a game to download this as soon as possible.

It is a thing of beauty in terms of creating a feeling without depending on graphics. We are becoming spoiled with great graphics and forgetting that sometimes the best scares come from the things we can’t see.

ComicCon 2012: *NEW Injustice: Gods Among Us Gameplay Trailer

A new trailer of Injustice: Gods Among Us was revealed at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con 2012.

Injustice: Gods Among Us is a fighting game featuring many characters from the DC Universe, including Batman, Flash, Superman, and Wonder Woman. The stages in the game feature destructible environments, multiple areas, and interactive objects the player can use to deal damage. For example, a player can use the Batmobile in the Batcave to launch rockets at the opponent. Ed Boon, creative director of NetherRealm Studios, stated that characters will fall into two categories – those who use brute strength and those who use gadgets. Power characters, such as Superman, can lift heavy objects from the environment and attack opponents with them. Gadget characters, such as Batman, are more agile, and can instead use these objects to move across the screen to dodge attacks and avoid being cornered by the enemy.
