Video Game Cheats 'n Beatums #47: Shadow of Open Door (Policy)

Tales from the water cooler.

Video Game Cheats 'n Beatums is a weekly webcomic by KC Green. If you want to read more, you can find the rest of the archived comics here.

Let’s take a look backwards to an newer classic. The system in Shadows of Mordor was so fresh and interesting! Every time you die, the enemy that killed you got promoted and you get to watch it happen! You get to see EXACTLY how you messed up. EXACTLY what it cost you and how happy they are. How happy EVERYONE in the game, basically, is that you screwed up! It’s NOT infuriating AT ALL to see that OVER and OVER and– ahem why did I buy this game? Here’s what it would be like if it was an office. I have to de-stress, excuse me.

KC Green is probably playing a weird indie game right now instead of working on his adaptation of Pinocchio or writing the comic BACK. He currently lives in Western Massachusetts in the snow where he makes comics and writes these bios.
