mordor 1
That’s right: I finally did it! I finally cracked open a single-player game and dove in. You know one reason I avoided these was the fact that I had so much time taken up by MMOs, right? THIS ISN’T HELPING! All I can say is wow, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is the very definition of addicting. My very first play session, where I didn’t even know what I was doing, kept me enthralled for hours on end. Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about you; I just used the opportunity practice with the controls before diving in for realz.

And here’s that moment — my first true trip into Mordor. Warning: I lost track of time here, too, but something extra special happened…

… I didn’t die! Not even once! I hope that doesn’t spoil the surprise. You can watch for yourself if you don’t believe me (and watch even if you do!). And then stay tuned as this is actually a series, from start to finish.

    I was so sorry to learn of your gig at massively being 86ed along with the the rest of the joystic empire by the clowns that run AOL and the final podcast you and the rest of the massively gang just put up today was great way for you all to salute the sinking ship.

    I tried to find recorded versions of your live feed shows from this blog over on twitch but while I could find you as a person via their search and see that you have 184 followers over there I was not able on my twitch iOS app to either follow or find recorded prior livestreams of yours other than the massivelytv ones. I expect it is some quirk of the twitch iOS app and once I am near a computer again next week I will try from their web site but I do hope to be able to watch your game casts in the future your sense of fun is very infectious and even though as a Macintosh gamer most of the games you showcase are not on the OS X platform (ESO is my current MMO ) I still enjoy your trips of discovery into such a varied spread of game types and your insights into them I do hope you and your massivly cohorts all find a new site to fund and support your excilent reporting on the industry and that you all find it soon.
    Cheers and good luck for the future what ever it holds

      I can’t get any shows or channels either using the twitch app on my tablet so not sure what’s up with that. The good news is that most all my shows are here on this site, so if you check the stream heading up top it will lead you to quite a few. I have still more I need to transfer over here, and certainly more to do!

      Thank you so much for your kind words, and I hope i can keep entertaining everyone =D
