Shadow of Mordor Screenshots

These screenshots were rendered in-game and captured at various high-megapixel resolutions using the in-game photo mode and then down-sampled to their present size.

What Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor lacks in story, is more than made up for by the phenomenal Nemesis system, fluid combat, and emergent gameplay. Narrative aside, the only other black mark on this game is the disappointing implementation of the final battle. Regardless, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is highly recommended.

My wife and I carved these pumpkins for Halloween 2014. My wife’s pumpkin is Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon, based on artwork by ProdRyukin13, and mine is Arno Dorian from Assassin’s Creed Unity, based on artwork by Ubisoft.

Aim for the head; that's where the pudding is.
