    Default Middle-Earth: Shadow of War

    So I got this game free with my purchase of a 1080. Anyone else playing it?

    I love it, but I loved the first one. I put it on Nemesis difficulty to start as the last one often felt far too easy. I have died...many times so that's definitely no longer an issue.

    That being said, if you played the first one and didn't like it, don't bother with this one. It is a far more well rounded game, but it's still the same core systems with 1 or 2 more layered on top of it.

    In terms of performance, I run it at 4k Ultra settings 60 FPS with no problems other than some scenes making my computer sound like a jet engine. I have a 980 ti so i'd say it's pretty well optimized, especially if you didn't want to play at 4k. I'd highly suggest playing with a controller unless you're one of those people who insist on playing with a mouse and keyboard regardless of game type.

    I didn't hate the first one, I just sorta, stopped playing.

    I really liked the first one, but will wait for a sale. Too many games.
    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    The child should prove to be a difficult challenge for you.

    Go buy a 1080 or 1080 Ti and get it free, duh.

    I already have a 1080 ti. Between Warhammer and War Thunder I just don't have time.

    Completed this game. I really liked it. Act IV is an epic grind, though. Played 95% of it on Nemesis, but finally gave in and dropped the difficulty to get through the end part faster. Unless you really, really like defending fortresses, I suggest doing the same if you've a mind to "finish" the game.

    Won't buy this game. Won't support a single player game that has micro-transactions.

    My understanding is that everything you can buy with $ you can also buy with in-game currency, and it's not necessary to progress.
