Bill Gates Takes On Chess World Champ… Loses in Over a Minute

Everyone knows who Bill Gates is. Not everyone know who Magnus Carlsen is – a Norwegian chess grandmaster, who won his first title at the age of 13(!!!).

I am not a chess enthusiast, but seeing what Carlsen did to one of the most brilliant people of the few past decades is a feast to the eyes.

Feast on!

Gameplay Walkthrough of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor – A Game You Are Secretly Waiting For

Those anticipating the new action/adventure game from Monolith Productions can now watch a new video containing gameplay footage from pre-alpha of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.

The video takes us several hours into the game and focuses on the “nemesis system” – a feature developed for the game, allowing surviving enemies to remember previous encounters with the protagonist, making future encounters unique and personal.

Considering it’s a pre-alpha footage, the graphics look very fluid and the fighting system resembles the one seen in the Batman games – Arkham Asylum and Arkham CIty.

Game is taking place during the time between the events of “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings,” and as a fan of Tolkien’s works, I cannot wait to see how this release will turn out.  The video definitely makes me hope for the best.

Do you think Shadow of Mordor has a chance of becoming a great title, or maybe will it end up just like other games based on Tolkien’s books?
