Here it is: Lord Of The Rings: Shadow of Angmar
And I thought I would give you all my impressions of it. There were two things that really stood out in my mind:
- The minstrel class can play fancy tunes, although anyone can buy and play all the different instruments (however badly). - I met a guy on there who was using the in-game instruments to play the "Super Mario Theme", and was able to sequence other midi songs into the in-game musical instrument. The idea of playing the Doom 1 stage 1 midi in-game just really cracks me up. Here it is for reference: Doom1e1
- You get to play monsters (orcs, spiders, wolves, etc.). - Which in turn means you get to fight against players (high level players mind you). It's pretty fun, the other day the Devs were playing as "Freep" (free player, in otherwords, not a minion of evil) against the creeps (players playing monsters). I must say it was pretty exciting.
Beyond those two things, this new LOTR game is equal to or less than most, if not all of the other MMORPGs I've seen out there. It seems very similiar to Guild Wars actually. Although I've never played WoW or EQ, or any of the millions of other MMORPGs.
