Graphics look kinda plain, but otherwise it all looks like some simple fun. Plus DWARVES, man!

Dammit, chat is not loading for me in Firefox =( Needed to use stupid chrome.

Posted by FreakAche

Meh. Just looks kind of like the GameCube games, but with unnecessary gore added in.

This video make me kind of hate this game. Felt really...... emm... false? I dunno. The quotes from the books and everything the people were saying over the video was pretty awful. Me no talk pretty right now.

Edited by Doskias

I know the battles in the book were violent, but I don't think Tolkien specifically detailed orcs writhing in pain as black spheres gushed forth from their leg-stumps. 
But I haven't read LotR in a while, so maybe I forgot about that part.

Posted by MysteriousBob

I didn't think LOTR was popular because of how brutal it was. This looks more like Fallout 3.

That's kind of the whole thing with this game. It's violence.
I can do a violent LOTR game.

I laughed out loud when I really thought about how many times I've heard  a person in a promotional video say "This is the X that Y fans have been waiting for."

Is that dev chick wearing an elf costume?

Did she just knock that dudes head off with a wooden staff ???

Slow Motion Slashing: The Movie: The Game

Edited by Toxin066

This doesn't look like a $60 game. I'd be willing to be $30 for it, tops.  Also, I thought we were past the Lord of the Rings.

Movement and combat looks stiff as hell.

I wouldn't have any interest in this if it wasn't for Snowblind

Same goes for me.

Yeah, it felt false somehow.
The words "...where you hit the enemy is where he gets severed..." is probably implying more than it actually does. Kind of looked like fatalities in Age of Conan.
Still waiting on a proper action-y melee hitbox game rather than melee hitpoint game.

I feel like no game has matched dismemberment liek Rune


Someone cuts your arm off, and you can pick it up and fight with your arm.

I mean come on.

Rune is awesome. We need a Rune TNT.

They sure love their slow motion. It feels like this video is about 3 times as long as the original footage.

Posted by Koolaids_Back

Is it weird that I wish the combat was like Demons' Souls?

(minus the ranged (bow shooting was awful))
Posted by Dynamo22

Looks decent, but I wouldn't be surprised if its pure shit like every other LOTR game. I'm sure all of this is what Tolkien was looking for out his legacy. 

Posted by partoftheproblem

It's the game that no one asked for.

Posted by Vindollar

Looks good to me. Anticipation rising.

Dude. What?  I need to look up and play this game.

 

 

Also this looks pretty good.

Why are these people wearing that and being interviewed outside in the cold? What a strange marketing decision.

hobbit, i think- haha
Posted by chickdigger802

idk... i remember the people in the film could barely take out the hybrid general dudes.

But in this game you can wack off heads with a staff?

I do wish this game explained more about the actual gameplay. All I know is that ' we embrace our m rating'.

Posted by Hector

Looks like crap! I'll just rent it.

Listen I am no fanboy to the Lord of the Rings series or to the films but I think tolkien envisioned a brutal

war-torne world because it represend the horrors and experiences of  WW1 and WW2 which tolkien took to heart having faught in WW1 and also having a son fight in WW2.  Building on the brutality of the series no matter how good it could be seems to diminsh entierly what tolkien was trying to teach.  Because violence is clearly where this game is being aimed I hope they can bring A LOT of emotion and story to the table to expaned on what tolkien wanted.

 

P.S. I would love to lope the head off an orc 

Posted by Vonocourt

Why are people complaining about the violence not being in tone with the books when the lady-character can rapid-fire magic missiles while aiming from the hip like a third person shooter? I'm pretty sure that's a bit more of a departure from the books than some severed limbs.

But still, kind of looking forward to this game.

Is it wrong if a man wants to legally marry a videogame?

Posted by AnxiousTube

@Vonocourt:
Oh no I agree I like the over the topness but what I am asking is would tolkien appreciate it as a violent video game


 

Posted by Scottish_Sin

Looks good enough for a rent I'd say.

Posted by Arrested_Developer

This is the first Lotro game I've been excited for for years.

Posted by AhmadMetallic

damn that trailer stunk bad


count me out

I saw heads flying of when the sword was barely touching the cheast

Edited by raiz265

All they talk about is how awesome chopping of heads and limbs is, still it doesn't look very convincing at all looking at that video... :|


Like mages hitting their enemies with a staff and making the head pop off?
Or dudes stabbing orcs in the chest making them lose their arm?

Meh.
Posted by Jimbo

The choppy choppy does look kinda fun.  Like Soldier of Fortune with swords.

Posted by blackfire83


This looks.... awful. Not precisely the game this Lord of the Rings fan has been waiting for.

 

Posted by Vegetable_Side_Dish

I'm always in favour of dismemberment.

Posted by Lind_L_Taylor

Why the living hell do we have another LOTR game?  Can't
these guys come up with their own fantasy game world?
Isn't there already an LOTR online already?  It's played out.

Posted by Spiritof

It's taken a long time, but I've grown really weary of 'Developer Diaries'. Just call them 'Soundbyte Diaries' and get it over with.

Posted by Jackel2072

i think they really need to give up on the lord of the rings video game idea. 

Edited by Cantaloup

This started out well enough. I was excited to see it was Snowblind (of Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance and Champions of Norrath fame) working on a new action RPG. But this video quickly killed that. It looks just like the Lord of the Rings games from last generation. And half the video going on about the game's big feature being... dismemberment? Meh.

"Middle Earth is a very beautiful place but it's also very dangerous and brutal."

"Tolkien really spent a lot of detail describing the brutality of the fight for Middle Earth."
"It's a very, y'know, intense-brutal-fun combat experience."

So their marketing department decided that "brutal" was going to be this game's buzzword, and now anyone talking about it has to say "brutal" at least once every three sentences.

This game is not a cynical cash-in; it was made with love and joy and a sound appreciation of the source material.  No, really.  If you don't believe me, then you deserve to have your legs chopped off an to writhe in pain on the ground, just like in all those books by that J.K. Token chick.
Posted by andrewf87462

It looks a bit button mashy to me. Not exactly the LOTR game i've been waiting for,
Posted by StriderNo9

Looks good, gimme a demo.

Edited by Death_Burnout

So many of you are the most cynical, jaded, overly critical people on the internets, that i have seen.

Posted by bunkerbuster05

Lord of the Dynasty Warriors. Give me a demo and we'll see.

Posted by Mr_Skeleton

Actually the combat was the book's weakest point.
