Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced that Middle-earth: Shadow of War mobile, a free-to-play real-time RPG continuing Talion’s journey through Mordor, will feature iconic characters from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and The Lord of the Rings trilogy, including Celebrimbor, Eltariel, Gimli, and Boromir and many more fan-favourites. Meet us after the jump for more details.
Each week, one of Biff Bam Pop’s illustrious writers will delve into one of their favorite things. Perhaps it’s a movie or album they’ve carried with them for years. Maybe it’s something new that moved them and they think might move you too. Each week, a new subject, a new voice writing on… something they love.
This week we have the pleasure of having Sarah Hawkins Miduski share her love of the television series “Pushing Daisies,” after the jump.
Remember, not so long ago, that sense of excitement we all had heading into our local theatres, eager to re-visit characters named Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippen, Gimli, Legolas, Aragorn and Gandalf?
By the time the third instalment of The Lord of the Rings franchise finished, those characters were some of our closest friends, weren’t they? Over a span of three Christmas-time seasons, they had rooted themselves, deeply, into our minds and hearts. We laughed with them, cried for them, and shared in their adventures, tragedies and triumphs. We lived alongside both them and the cinematic landscapes they inhabited: the Mines of Moria, Rivendell, Rohan, Gondor , the Shire. Middle Earth.
That sense of excitement and anticipation has nervously returned this year with the The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – the first of three films, set to be released over the next three Christmas-time seasons. With new characters and new adventures (and new cinematic formats), could it possibly live up to the audience experience of its predecessor films?
The answer, my friends, is that indeed it does.
