It’s time for another Screenshot Safari post! Not sure what a screenshot safari is? Head on over to my first post to get an understanding on what’s going on and also how to get involved!
The theme this week is Selfie.
When Shadow of Mordor was first announced, it looked like a game I would enjoy. Appearing to mix the mechanics of Assassin’s Creed and Batman: Arkham Asylum, Mordor ultimately proved to me that it was something so much more. The Nemesis System is a revolutionary mechanic, one that when you first hear about, you think that it sounds great on paper but won’t pan out exactly in the game. Boy was I wrong. Creating dynamic and unique Uruks for lead character(s) Celebrimbor and Talion to hunt, each time you played the game, it felt new and fresh. Not only that, the game proves to be great at giving players a new story to tell their friends.
Game: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
So for my selfie photo, I used the game’s Photo Mode to capture this relatively frightening picture of Celebrimbor as he’s about to land on the ground from a tall height. Being a wraith that has been bound with the ranger Talion, Celebrimbor is able to enhance Talion’s already formidable skillset with additional moves and abilities. When performing these moves, he takes over which is why he’s visible here and not Talion. I just happened to time things right and captured the good wraith just at the right moment.
Good luck sleeping tonight!
