The lights are on
Shadow of Mordor is a dark tale that has the former ranger Talion seeking revenge...but that doesn't mean every second of the story needs to have brooding. It looks like the team at Monolith is lightening the mood a bit with the introduction of Ratbag, a sniveling orc who wants to be warchief.
In the video below, we get a taste for how Talion and Ratbag interact. The orc seems to put his own best interests first, so it will be interesting to see how long Talion (and players) are willing to put up with him.

lol ratbag looks like a cool character!
What a feisty little fella. I know I'm not the only who is going to be waiting for him to betray us.
Seriously Monolith, I'll buy 3 copies of this game!!! Just give it to me already XD
I like a little comedy. It is always welcomed!
When he betrays you and you have to kill him I feel like it's going to be a hard thing to do lol.
Man this game looks great. I really hope it lives up to the hype.
Come on September 30th already.
Hmm, Ratbag was mentioned in an earlier video in the Nemesis system where Talion pretty much dominated his mind.
So, either Ratbag is scripted, or the orcs we dominate, if we keep them alive, have their own unique dialogue.
I'm totally going to make this guy my b****!!
Ohhhh the wait for this is unbearable!
Hmm. Wasn't expecting any humor in this game. That should be interesting as long as they don't overdo it.
I like what I've seen of this game thus far.
