Joystiq put up their Meta-Review, an aggregate of various sites' reviews, of the multi-platform Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. So, yeah,. it's a good game by almost all accounts.
In Shadow of Mordor you play Talion, a supernaturally empowered ranger who has every reason to want to take out Sauron and his lackeys. The best part, for me, is that it is an open world game that allows you to pursue your quests and sidequests in the manner you see fit. Also, it was written by the lead writer of Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption.
There are five different pre-order bonuses and they can be found at the game's website.

Deadpool Bi-Annual #1 was just released today and it is a fun read but whenever something that was best left forgotten gets resurrected it seems to access a dormant portion of my memory, releasing it's contents, like a kind of poison, into my brain. Brute Force, Protectors of the Environment (originally a four-issue mini-series from 1990) was one of those long forgotten footnotes from Marvel Comics.
On the podcast I am affiliated with, the Mission Command Podcast, we commented recently about the resurgence of the funny animal. Seems like there's something to that, as that same zeitgeist has brought about the return of the lamentable and lost Brute Force. Oh well. It was a fun story and got a few LOLs out of me. So that's something. Below are some images form the original Brute Force.
