Yeah, that looks shit.
i feel sorry for monolith, they were the best :(
I didn't even realize that Monolith was still around in some form. I miss the days of No One Lives Forever 1 & 2.
So Gollum plays like a simplified Slark, and Gandalf is somewhat analogous to Warlock, though with far less utility? Gotta say I'm bummed with where the AoS/A-RTS genre seems to be going. Building skills around shallow, forced synergies is just about the worst thing you could do when building a hero!
Use Gollum's "fart cloud" ability to make a quick and cowardly escape.
I'm sorry for you Monolith. So so sorry
This game makes me uncomfortable.
GOD WHY WON'T SOMEONE DO SOMETHING ORIGINAL WITH THE LORD OF THE RINGS PROPERTY. If someone actually tried to be creative with Lord of the Rings, I bet something really cool could be made.
Fly, you fools.
Moba, you mobas!
I threw up a little when I heard the term "tank-y" in relation to Gandalf.
@groundbeef: Dude, Lord Management games are the new ish
Last time I checked, Gollum wasn't the same size as humans. Fuck this game.
Wow... talk about late to the party. I would have loved this game 10 years ago when LOTR and DOTA were both novel.
I think they're falling into the same trap Demigod and quite a few other AA/AAA attempts on MOBAs have done.
Too few heroes and items. They're aiming for a more streamlined concept that is more accessible and doesn't scare off more casual players or players who are new to the genre. They somehow haven't realized that the stupid complexity is what actually draws people to play and keep playing DotA/HoN/LoL etc.
This game just makes all geeks look bad.
@m16mojo2 said:Replace characters and plot, add in same generic abilities. Nobody would even be looking at this... "Galdalf is wise enough to wear an Elvin ring." WHAT!? Does he bring some with him because "they''re good at clearing out dungeons" too?I'm pretty sure they're just referencing Narya.http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Narya

I know it's part of the fiction of lotr but, just the way they deliver it. It just sounds so hokey, like a bullet point on the back of the box.
I love MOBAs and LOTR, but I just can't see this working out well.
"As an enchanter Gandalf is wise enough to wield an Eleven Ring of Power"
WTF is this Shit, Gandalf's a wizard.
Yeah, do not want.
Like MOBAs, for the most part. Like LOTR for the better part...
Do not like this.
This is literally the worst game ever invented.
To be fair, it's a perfectly capable MOBA clone, perfectly suitable for console controls. The LOTR setting, however, is completely unnecessary. Also, from what I understand, there's no segregation between factions, so you can have Sauron and Gandalf fighting on the same side against Galadriel and Gollum, which is kinda stupid.
EDIT: The gameplay looks fun, but the narration is creatively bankrupt. Shut up and let me watch the game!
I'm sure everyone will remember this game as fondly as Demigod.
So golum is slark, they only showed 3 spell. I wonder if they have 3 normal spell + stats + 1 ult formula from dota or some sort of new formula. Gandalf only has 2 spells? This fails as a player profile video and god damn this game looks bad.
This is just really weird.
It takes a very, very special kind of game to make me feel physically ill... well done Monolith Productions you've managed to dive to the lowest possible level.
This looks absolutely terrible and it will fail.
Man the art style looks bad aesthetically as well as in regards to gameplay purpose. Making out units on that background will be a pain in the ass.
@teh_destroyer: Clearly they are doing this because they are rolling in cash and able to fund any project they wish.
This is so bad....
There goes LOTR's dignity as a franchise.
Just giving the license away to anyone! What happened?
Gandalf is a tanking guardian with AOE damage. Just like Tolkien envisioned.
... So that why kids these days think that the lord of the rings sucks?
I am not interested.... I love LOTR, and I enjoy games like LoL, but... no.
Instead of making this random Lord of the Rings game you should be doing something like Condemned 3.
Sure is a great idea to have a MOBA on a console OH BOY.
So bad. What's with the voice over? That's almost worse.
I was going to put some money aside for this, but Kid Rock's 4th Annual Chillin' the Most Cruise goes on pre-sale tomorrow!
Doesn't look like a good GoME. Right, guys? Ok, ok, I'm leaving...
