Hey duders. I picked up Shadow of Mordor during MS's Black Friday sale and I've been enjoying it quite a bit. I've gotten to the 4 Warchiefs mission, and now I'm just getting destroyed. To give a better sense of where I'm at:

  • Finished the early Gollum missions (up to the point where your ghost realizes who he is)
  • Have not finished the poison-all-the-Uruks mission (I gave it like 4 real shots and after the 5th time of the instant-fail on being caught I said fuck it)
  • Finished a handful of the challenge missions

What tends to happen is I get into combat, and I go from facing 5-8 bad guys (including whatever named Uruk I'm trying to take on) to suddenly being swarmed by 12-16, with a significant chance of 1-2 more named bad guys showing up. At that point, I'm about 40 seconds from being murdered. I was never amazing at the Arkham games combat but I did well enough that I beat Arkham Asylum and City. I feel like I'm missing some core concept or something that will make the game less of a ballbuster. So I'm coming to you fine folk. Any suggestions to make combat more manageable and/or some easily missed stealth tactic that can help with the poison mission?

Posted this on Twitter to Eric Pope. Figured I'd throw it here too.

Piracy. With used sales there's a clear opportunity for that person to want to buy the sequel new (assuming the opportunity is there). With pirates, that chance is slim to none.

What bad HD remakes are you talking about? It was my understanding that most of them were fairly good.

I can't remember if I ever played Starcraft or Worms Armageddon online. The first game I remember playing online any significant amount was X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter. Coincidentally, it was also my first guild.
