      Yeah! I totally agree with you and I also don’t have have a game station but I will have to hibernate at my friend house for a week to play that game on her game station. ;D

  2. LegolasPippin says:

    Yeah it looks so cool! Oh and btw everyone needs to go read the poem I wrote under the last blog post, its really good!!!

  3. This game is awesome! I can’t wait to play. I will spend many hours playing this one! I hope it sells a lot.

  4. My brothers are going to want to get this game! They really liked the War of the North game so I know they will like this one to! Super excited for The Hobbit to come out!!

  5. I might be getting a PS3 soon and if I do I’ll definitely pick this up. :3

  6. LegolasAwesomenesss says:

    I lllluuuuvvvvvv LOTR I’m so happy the hobbit is comeing out!!! Iv been counting the days (57) till it comes out!!!!!

  7. The trailer looks amazing, I might get a PS3 just to play this. Ive played a couple LOTR games and they’ve been ok but this one looks way cooler than any of the others.

  8. It looks shit and generic. Please let the MERP team do their thing.

  9. Mithrandir says:

    This is a shame toward Tolkien’s and Jackson’s work.

    Lame gameplay, and the style doesn’t even respect the Tolkien’s lore.

  10. folco townsend says:

    Oh my god! Can’t seem to wait for the hobbit. Biting my nails now waiting for the film to come out. I will have to buy the game, as it is associated with LOTR, but I have to say although the artwork looks good, the concept and gaming idea doesn’t seem too great or fun. I just hope they’ll sell enough to make another one :) .

  11. Brimrahil says:

    Ok, I have a VERY serious question for all of you. How do we find out which theatres are getting the 48fps version of the film. I’m chomping at the bit to buy advance tickets, but I don’t know which theatre to buy them from! Are ALL IMAX theatres getting the 48fps version?

  12. MOBA game? :D awesome!

    Sounds cool either!

  13. House said Sony planned to ensure that they the appropriate ‘ground up experiences’
    that the Japanese consumers ‘really respond to’ before entering that market with the PS4.
    The Play – Station 3 posseses an XMB (Cross Media Bar)
    menu system that is very easy to navigate and one
    in the choices is always to access an internet browser.
