"The Lord of the Rings: Conquest"
For: Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC
From: Pandemic Studios/EA
ESRB Rating: Teen (violence)
By Billy O'Keefe
Hey, do you like "The Lord of the Rings?" And did you like "Star Wars: Battlefront?" Well guess what: You'll love "The Lord of the Rings: Conquest," even when the game itself dares you not to.
Like "Battlefront" — which Pandemic Studios also masterminded — "Conquest" is a tactical action game. Your essential objective is to carve through opposing armies, but you're working alongside an army of your own and are free to swap between different classes (warrior, archer, scout, mage). While the number of times you can perish in a single mission is limited, "Conquest" otherwise operates like a multiplayer game: If and when you die, you simply respawn as a character type of your choice while the action carries on uninterrupted.

Courier Staff Report
Problems with the New Haven school district's new Student Information System, called Zangle, frustrated many teachers' attempts to post semester grades Monday, a student-free workday set aside for teachers to submit grades and prepare for today's start of the second semester.
"I've had enough of Zangle," said Language Arts teacher Indira Chakrabarti this morning, after a frustrating day of dealing with the on-again, off-again, slowpoke computer program, which was supposed to make submitting grades easier when it was implemented as the district's new student information system at the start of the year.
