On Dragons Breathing Fire

Every day brings the One Ring closer to Mordor. Every day brings The Lord of the Rings: War in the North closer to me.

Here’s the launch trailer:

Holy fuck! There’s a dragon! And it’s breathing fire!

This is me. Being excited.

Breathing fire!

To get excited — because the game comes out on Tuesday — I’ve spent this snowy day replaying some levels from the Return of the King game from 2003.

I haven’t replayed the Black Gate level. That’s intense. I hate fighting the Easterlings; they’re tough, speedy bastards.

Tuesday! Tuesday! Coming out on Tuesday!

To the Black Gate!

  1. I’m positively giddy about this game, if this post and this other post didn’t already attest to that. The thing is, I didn’t think I could feel this giddy about an upcoming game again. I was burned out on games when I left EB (and I left EB feeling burned and embittered), so this giddiness on my part is surprisingly unexpected.

    I have the Collector’s Edition on order, and Tuesday can’t come soon enough. 🙂
