A recap of our 4th Symphony of Light in #LOTRO thanks to BaraFunda on Twitch: http://ow.ly/Cx7Ay #Kinships #Tolkien

Seems to me that WB is pivoting their Tolkien license to use "Middle-earth" more and Lord of the Rings less. So they can screw things up more generally I guess. They want a generic "brand name" they can easily use across games and otherwise, without seeming to cross the line that puts them at risk of legal action from Tolkien's estate. I wouldn't mind so much if it didn't mean increasingly dumbed-down products whose "stories" are explained away by what can only be described as intellectual fraud. The video game "Shadows of Mordor" is a prime example of this. The story is simply indefensible except by pin-headed marketing geeks who think all one must do is say something is "inspired by" or purified by some lame connection to Peter Jackson.

But why worry, virtually no "Tolkien" inspired game save for LOTRO has managed to make any impact or influence people.
