December 3: wallet threat level taking the hobbits to Isengard

, | Features

Okay, so you probably know this as the week Far Cry 3 comes out. Which it is. And while Far Cry 3 is a perfectly fine open world game, I wouldn’t call it a substantial wallet threat. Instead, my wallet is in danger from the prospect of a Defense of the Ancients clone by Monolith featuring characters from Lord of the Rings. Balrog, I chose you! Guardian of Middle Earth will only be available on console systems, so Awesomenauts has some competition.

Also, the Dragonbone expansion is out for Skyrim. Just imagine Max von Sydow intoning, “Dragonbone!” Sold.
