FEAR for Batman and the Lord of the Rings

Tell Your Friends, All Your Friends, I am the Warner Brothers Humble Bundle

Robin Hood was sort of a superhero of his day, robbing from the rich and giving to the poor, whilst roaming around the forest in a pair of tights.  You could be a little hero yourself by giving some money to the WB Humble Bundle on Steam and getting F.E.A.R. 3The Lord of the Rings: War in the North and a Batman game or two, for as much as you like.

Join us for the other fellowship's story!

Lord of the Rings: War in the North Co-op Night - January 26th

Everyone knows the story of the Fellowship of the Ring, however, not many have heard the story of the other fellowship that helped save Middle Earth. Thankfully, SnowBlind Studios have done a stellar job at telling us that story in The Lord of the Rings: War in the North. We're teaming up with Xbox Live to bring you a co-op night to relive that story on Thursday, January 26th at 8-11PM Eastern.

Now for wrath, now for ruin!

Lord of the Rings: War in the North Co-Op Review

Snowblind Studios was behind the much-celebrated co-op titles Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance and Champions of Norrath. As far as a lot of us are concerned, these are the console dungeon crawlers to beat. Those are pretty big boots of striding to fill, though, especially after such a long time. The question tha's on the tip of everyone's tongue is: is LOTR: War in the North up to filling those boots - and our expectations?

It's the fall gaming season and everygame is vying for your hard earned dollar. With so many games to choose from, already at the exhorberent price of $59.99, why would you drop $99, $129 or even $150 on a Collector's or Special Editions of a game? Because it's shiny, that's why. Oh - did we mention we're giving a collector's edition away?

LOTR: War in the North Launch Trailer Looks Amazing

Every time I write off The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, another awesome trailer pulls me back into the Tolkien hype machine.  This latest video has got it all: maps, rings, fire, eyes, eyes on fire, and undead horseys, all in the first thirteen seconds!  Choose your ranger, elf, or dwarf and get to troll stabbin'.  You had better bring some friends.  It looks like Agandaur has been eating his electrified Wheaties, because his force lightning looks bad-ass.  Strength, courage, fellowship!

A new promotional video for LotR: War in the North is packed full of 'famous' people

Let Famous People Try to Sell You The Lord of the Rings: War in the North

Unless you have featured in film or television I don't care about your opinion on Lord of the Rings.  Go home Professor of English Literature at Oxford University; see you Grandpa who actually knew Tolkien - neither of you have the kudos of some bloke off Big Bang Theory or one of the Hobbits from the films.  Snowblind Studios understand my needs with their new promotional video for The Lord of the Rings: War in the North.  Talk to us all famous people.

New Trailer for LOTR: War in the North Delves into Co-Op

This trailer for The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is, as they say, "doing it right."  This is an accompaniment to the Power of Three trailer we brought you earlier this week.  The developers discuss some of the benefits of co-op, including some of the character abilities as well as a challenge mode.  Looks like Snowblind built some extra replay-ability into their latest action RPG.

New Trailer for the LOTR: War in the North Focuses on The Power of Three

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North has new trailer out.  It concentrates on the new fellowship of the three, and the whole "sum is greater than the parts" thing.  Basically, when you get a dude, a dwarf, and a female elf together, things get awesome.  Like we didn't already know that.  Still, the trailer is pretty cool.  It uses opera singers, spinning camera angles, and buckets of blood to great effect.
