Yep...I was actually glad Red Dead Redemption 2 got a long delay because I still had this, COD: WWII and Star Wars Battlefront II with all three sort of spread out.....not anymore.

Even with the gameplay videos, I wasn't expecting it to be released in August. Hopefully I can pre-order this game at Amazon.ca or BestBuy.ca in the E3 sale.

This is a day one purchase and will probably pre-order. The first game was one of the best i have played in recent years and this looks like it takes everything great about it and builds on it. CAN-NOT WAIT!!!

That looked fucking great. I got to give the first another chance. I couldn't even do 1 mission I think...

The first game seems hard at first, but really give it an hour or two and it will quickly become second nature. The first game was exceptionally well done and the Nemesis system was one of the best new features to any game i have seen in years. Getting killed by an Orc who then gets promoted really provides a vendetta feeling and its great to hunt them down for revenge.

It looks like the $100 edition is a steelbook

That's cool looking but I'll stick with my $48 standard edition.

I'm still debating on the Standard or Gold Edition.....but at $99 it seems you would get a bit more especially compared to other games with their "Gold or Collector" set. Sure you're getting two expansions and two additional stories but I almost wish they went with a sort of SE with lots of add-ons at around $80 and then a Collectors at around $120. I know they have that mega Collectors Edition but something a bit smaller with small statue of Talion or something.

I was able to pre-order the standard edition for $50 which is a great price so no regrets on missing the additional DLC on the deluxe editions.

Re: Middle Earth: Shadow of War (Mordor sequel; PS4 / XB1; 10/10/17)

Once you factor in the $10 Best Buy reward zone certificate and GCU, you have to decide if it's worth picking up the Gold Edition for $69.99 or the regular edition for $37.99. So at the end of the day, it's an extra $32 for a steelbook and all of the DLC. Most season passes go for $30 - $40 now anyways. And since they are offering the Gold Edition upfront this time, it is less likely there will be a GOTY bundle down the line with all of the DLC.

I almost wish they had a SE Edition at around $79 and then a $120 Collectors Edition like you're seeing with other games with maybe a 6" Statue, Maps, gadgets, etc...Sure the Gold does give the two expansions and two stories up front plus Gold Chest and some Legendary Orcs. There's going to be a lot of content in the game itself beside the expansion and story to last a while but I still might bite with my GCU.

For the Star Wars SE they loaded a bunch of add-ons for your character and not DLC but with Shadow of War it's DLC and not much for the add-ons....unless you count the War Chest.....which I haven't found what is the difference between Silver and Gold Chest?

i gave it some time, i didn't know exactly what to do or where to go. i do remember always getting killed by orcs. i couldn't get past two at a time, but i do love the world obviously...

Well...look on the bright side with Shadow of War......you won't have to do much alone and instead send in your "Kick Booty Orc Army" to handle the dirty work while you mop the floor with some here and there.

I just feel like I should probably just wait a couple of years and get the game and all the DLC for $4.

Yeah, that $100 edition is looking a little rough now

The last game that I played with loot boxes was Diablo 3. It makes sense since gear can now be customized.
