I think I need Shadow of Mordor in my life now!

After seeing this video, and reading the preview about the Nemesis system recently, I think I'm sold now http://www.gamespot.com/videos/101-ways-to-kill-an-orc-shadow-of-mordor-at-pax/2300-6421064/

The nemesis system was the seller for me. It's hard to explain, but I can basically build an army of orcs to fight for me.

HIIT or Tabata is necessary for me

I said it back when the game was announced, and I'll say it again.

Don't believe the hype.

The nemesis system sounds great.
Which means that it will probably be ****, if recent trends are anything to go by.

Wait for gamers to get their hands on the game, ignore the professional reviews. Watch finalized gameplay footage, and make the call for yourself.

Preorder exclusive dlc, season pass already announced and PS4 exclusive content? No thanks, I'll wait for a $20 price tag or GOTY edition.

Yeah, these things turn me off pretty much any game.

Agreed, i'm buying stuff day one that i'm interested in, but doesn't have these kinds of practices attached to it. For example, The Witcher 3.

The Nemesis System seems like an interesting concept. I am looking forward to playing Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.

Pretty much went the same way for me TC! I had zero interest in the game until I saw the gameplay footage, then it became a day one purchase. Unlike others here though, I am not bothered by preorder DLC as I used to be... It only matters if you care and if it actually brings meaningful content to the game, which in most cases it's does not. I'll be buying it digital and will somehow manage to find a way to enjoy myself without the inclusion of the rather meaningless preorder DLC!

The 50 minute gameplay demo was enough to convince me that I had better things to buy this fall.
