So, Destructoid's head review guy Chris Carter wasn't so hot on Lord of the Rings: Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, but Bill and I both LOVE it. Seriously. This game rules. Anyway, here are five reasons why we enjoy it, out of a much longer list.
Here's a terrible idea that we figured was a good idea, even though it's not: making a character in Skyrim who kind of, sort of, looks like Heavy Metal legend Ronnie James Dio. Join Max Scoville and Bill Zoeker as they make Dio stumble about in the land of dragons and ice wraiths and cheese wheels and Amulets of Mara and Talos and mud crabs and okay, fine, I'll stop.
30 years ago in the pages of Shonen Jump, Akira Toriyama introduced the world to his martial arts manga series. Since then, it's spun off into an anime series spanning hundreds of episodes, over a dozen movies, mountains of merchandise, and an incredibly long list of video games. Join Max and Bill on their grand tour of these games, and watch as they discuss their favorite moments from the series and argue about completely pedantic minutiae that no grown men in their right minds should actually be concerned with.
