Shadow of Mordor Video Reviews From Gamespot, IGN, GamesRadar


And it looks…


Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is one of those games I had zero interest in when it was first revealed in November 2013. The graphics looked sub par and I had no idea what the actual game was about. Now that things have cleared on both of those matters (the graphics are killer and it’s basically Assassin’s Creed in the LOTR universe and takes place between The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy) I am very, very excited to play it (releases September 30th).

But I wasn’t even gonna give it a sniff until I saw some reviews, and luckily three of the best, Gamespot, IGN, and GamesRadar, have taken care of me (and you) on that front. To watch each of those just click on the corresponding pic:

The 20 Minute Phantom Pain TGS Demo Is Jaw Dropping

Welcome to the Jungle, we’ve got fun and games…

Everything I have seen thus far from Kojima ProductionsMetal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has been pretty damn refreshing and new(ish). The game mechanics are unlike anything I’ve played and the graphics have been razor sharp in showing off the desert settings that I have seen up to this point.

But now this 20 minute Tokyo Game Show demo that showed up this week has Snake in the jungle and you can’t look at it and say its even remotely possible on a last gen system.

Yes, I’m drooling over it. Enjoy the 20 Minute Phantom Pain TGS Demo!


DouBle B’s CFB Picks 2014 – Week 5: Thursday Edition (With Week 4 Recap)

Weeeeeeeeeek 5!…DouBle-Bs-CFB-Picks-2014-week-5

Welcome to DouBle B’s CFB Picks 2014 Week 5 Edition.

It’s rush mode as the 4:30pm pst kickoff between Oklahoma State and Texas Tech looms large, so  lets just get right the f*** into it, shall we?

Week 4 Recap (with last week’s rank in parenthesis):

By my count I went 11-4 in week 4. You can read those predictions HERE and HERE.

Once again, didn’t call any of the upsets. Indiana over (18) Mizzou was a pretty big shocker for me. A Big Ten team, who had just lost the previous week to Bowling Green, is able to take out a previously unbeaten SEC squad who looked above average vs UCF? Yeah…shocked.

Mississippi St over (8) LSU wasn’t a surprise for me, although, I didn’t pick it, I did say it “Could be dangerous for the Tigers”. You know what game could potentially be fantastic to watch? The Egg Bowl. But thats a long ways away.

The (1) Seminoles and (2) Ducks both escaped with their unblemished records intact. The Cougs were oh so close to scoring the biggest upset of the young season, buuuut they didn’t.

Dawgs played a gawdawful first half against Georgia State (down 14-0 at the half) , but recovered with 45 straight points in the second half.

Time to make some picks.:


NBA 2K15’s Momentous Trailer Means It’s Almost Gametime

No holds barred, no time for move fakin’…


 Its the most wonderful time ooof the yeeeeaaaar!

Fact: Andy Williams released that song (if you don’t know what song I’m talking about, click the hyperlink above) on October 14th, 1963. NBA 2K15 releases October 7th. Coincidence? I think not.

Yes, ladies and gentleman, its that time of the year where 2K Sports treats us to the NBA 2K Momentous trailer. The song you hear in it is Scenario by A Tribe Called Quest (of whom Maximus, who tipped me off on this trailer, is a fan). Last years had Macklemore, for those of you wanting to know.

Vulture‘s Abraham Riesman did the world a favor and put together a supercut showing us this unfortunate incident again, and again, and again in Batmans Parents Dying: The Supercut.
