Is anyone else sick of hearing sexual noises everytime we decide to jump or grab a ledge. I know it has been reduced since aod but i still think its a bit annoying. Do you guys think it should be gotton rid of in underworld?

I think it adds to the game and makes Lara much more realistic, I wouldn't expect any woman to bash their upper chest hard against rocks without making a single sound in everyday life:tmb:

16-12-07, 14:04
Arent grunts supposed to relive tention? I dont mind, considering most of her moves are extremely difficult (if not impossible) it do. It cant be as bad as AOD though, when she was doing hand over hand on a wire, now that DID sound sexual.

Angelus
16-12-07, 14:04
They're better than the "HUH" noises from Legend and Anniversary. Made it sound like no effort was involved.

If you were actually pulling yourself up from a ledge, it would be quite normal to make a noise. "NGH".

MrBear
16-12-07, 14:04
I don't hear sexual noises at all, I hear the grunts of a person who is doing hard exertions in rough environments... :)

edit: wow, many replies at once :p must be the title that attracts attention :D

I think it should stay, it adds more realism. :) I doubt a woman could hang of a ledge, pull her entire body weight up with her hands onto the ledge, without grunting. :D

Alex Fly
16-12-07, 14:06
Best title thread ever ! :D

They were a little bit exagerated in the past, there were reduced a lot in Legend, they reappeared in Anniversary but they are better than before.

All these little grunts add some realism to Lara's actions. They should keep them ! :tmb:

So if you jump like 1 meter in the hair or something you wouldn't made a sound?

Even when I have handball match we do sounds like that. It's not sexual in any way.:p

Well when you climb to something it hurts and thats why we make a noise (sexual ;))
And im not sick of them :D and they are a part of TR :)

They've been in every game. We just noticed it more in Legend/Anniversary because she jumps around more.

No. :)

I missed it in legend (voice volume on zero turns off Tweedle-Dumb and Tweedle-Dee), and liked it in every other game.

There's no chance it won't return - it's something that adds to making Lara more of a 'living breathing human character'.

myrmaad
16-12-07, 14:54
That is so disgusting! I guess that's what you'd think if you were at my gym? I've got news for you buddy. That's the sound of strenuous activity.

Walk your little behind down to your local gym and have a listen. Maybe try lifting weights yourself. If you do it right you'll be making a lot of sounds.

Do you know it has never even occurred to me while playing the game that she was making "sexual" noises? There's nothing sexual about what she's doing.

Conway
16-12-07, 14:54
It's funny that while these grunts are rather humanly impossible to do away with when doing stuff like what Lara does, the automatic impression of most people when Lara is the one doing it is that she's made to do so for fan service rather than emulating the obvious reality. By all means, keep them.

Rivendell
16-12-07, 14:57

Let's not remove them. They are one of those things that make me feel like Lara is making effort and has weight.

Angelus
16-12-07, 15:02
:vlol: Or really really don't!

"Hello sir, would you like to join the gym?"

"Oh, no. I'm just listening to the women work out to see if they're grunting."

"Security!"

MoonSword
16-12-07, 15:04
Grunt due to effort is natural. Doesn't bother me at all.

myrmaad
16-12-07, 15:08
Hey, it's not just the women who are grunting, and it's not sexual. It's actually a very vulnerable position because you must make noises to lift weights, and even during strenuous core exercises, and when you are at your limit and pressing forward, and while I cover up well, the clothes are form-fitting, it really upsets me to think that people might be sexualizing it.

Aztek463
16-12-07, 15:09
Nothing could be as bad as AoD. *shivers at memories of parents walking in while Lara was doing something difficult* :ton:

Sonic_Eclipse
16-12-07, 15:09
Sexual noises? Well... I guess some of them do sound kinda sexual if you have your mind in the gutter. lol No, but seriously the grunts Lara makes while grab ledges, jump from one thing to other, etc., are grunts anyone would make while doing this stuff. It adds more realism to the game, and to do away with them would feel awkward.

Sexual noises... what were you thinking about?... ;)

Angelus

I hope my post didn't offend you in any way, I was merely joking.

When I'm excercising and am at my limit, I tend to grunt because I am at my limit, but trying to go that little bit further each time. I do understand what you're talking about.

Bumio
16-12-07, 15:12
yeah, they are kinda sexual, though i think they are cool and not annoying (and im a girl) and i have to admit that these voices are nothing compared to AOD voices :p now that was annoying....

@Angelus, I don't know why, but this thread seems to have hit a nerve for me. Your post didn't offend me, it was cute. It's just the idea that nothing is sacred. I wonder if our Lara was flat chested and frumpy, would anyone have thought this up?

The only time Lara sounded sexual was when she fell down that huge ladder in TR2.

it she did, that would be VERY creepy.

jeremyANDROGYNY
16-12-07, 15:48
I think they should keep the grunts in Underworld. They've been there since the first Tomb Raider game and I don't see why they would take a minor thing such as grunts out, and they don't sound sexual at all. Matrix54, your post made my day :D

I only think this because my sister made fun of it and i saw a german documentry (yes i know german) about games and it was also making fun of the sexual noises.

Mona Sax
16-12-07, 15:58
Me neither, not once in all the years I've been playing TR. I'd miss the grunts if they were gone, they add a lot of realism to the game. Lara does things a normal human being could never do, so the immense effort has to be visualized (or you'll get a Spider-Man effect like in Legend). Audio effects can enhance that illusion.

maximum_123
16-12-07, 16:01
I don't really care about them, keep them. Not like it's going to make any difference. It won't rate the game 18, it adds benefits, and not for the sick people :p But It adds realism.

Btw, love the thread title!

I'm starting to notice something:

A while back people were complaining about CD adding realism to the game, and any realistic feature that was added in Legend/Anni was most likely shot down with a lot of people hating it, but when it comes to a realistic feature from the first 6, people would complain if it went, because "They're taking the realism from the games" :confused:. It's almost like a lot of people don't like CD's games because they can't let go of the old ones. Meh, end rant =]

The grunts are just one feature that have to stay, IMO. Every game has grunts, so why should TR lose them?

Mona: rarely? Too much information :p

matrix54
16-12-07, 16:15

So no. Don't take those grunts away.

I said I thought it should stay because most games have grunts in them and TR has had them from the start, so why should they be removed now?

Lara only makes a vague nod to her hunger in TR3, talking with the tribesman. :p

myrmaad
16-12-07, 16:54
When Lara was on the run she ate candy bars to keep her strength up. We don't see her taking a dump either or squatting to pee, but if we've suspended our disbelief enough to buy into "LaraWorld" and immerse ourselves into it, we have some basic assumption that she takes care of that behind the scenes (like in books, movies, etc, you normally aren't privy to all the character's activities of daily living).

Mona and Matrix made me laugh, but seriously, I find the sexualization of the sounds a bit disturbing. When your male characters grunt during a game do you sexualize those as well? I can't help feeling like this is a bit of feminine exploitation (on the part of those who imagine them sexualized).

The reason everyone says its sexualized when a women is the lead character is because women are more sexy then men. There's no denying!

Laughing at a gay person mockingly isn't. :)

They're not sexual noises, that's just how you interpret them. You try scaling something like St. Francis' Folly without making noises.

I really don't see how the sounds could sound not-sexual. They're the sounds a woman makes when under physical strain... and sex -is- physical strain. :)

I liked the little noises of utter frustration...

It won't be long now before someone posts a gameplay vid with added sounds that really do sound sexual...

I think sexuality/non-sexuality of the grunts are really dependent on the player's perception ;) Really though, if I was hauling myself up on a ledge taller than I am, I'd be making all sorts of noises, too.

It sounds to me like you want her to sound like a man. :p

Keep it the way it is.

Who cares if it's sounds sexy? :D

Obviously alot of things.. but just view a certain perspective.. *giggles* :pi:

They do not sound sexual, I just double-checked (with my husband's help).

:tea: What a funny thread....LMAO. :vlol: and a weird one.

Only at first, years and years ago, they sounded weird. But now, its part of the adventure..... Think about how weird it would if she was running crazy, and jumping, and backflipping, and sideflipping without a single noise.

Without the noises, she would look like a mannequin.

BTW, lets stay alert and keep this thread PG-13 at most. :cln: :cln:

Is anyone else sick of hearing sexual noises everytime we decide to jump or grab a ledge. I know it has been reduced since aod but i still think its a bit annoying. Do you guys think it should be gotton rid of in underworld?You're still premature to understand what those sounds means m'boy. Those are the sounds of greatness and it sells. ;) *wink eye*

edit: lol just read the posts about Kurtis' grunt by trXD. :vlol: And matrix, your post makes me laugh, people are looking at me.

What a thread! :D Lol, Im not tired of those sounds...in AOD they were extremely funny (because they were QUITE exaggerated), but they added some diversity. Id like them to be present (but not thaaaat sexual) in TRU.

It is kinda annoying like at times when its really unappropriate, like when she's pulling up from a ledge or just jumping. Besides that, I don't mind it

I really liked the grunts from TRA. I hope they are similar. AoD on the other hand, was quite inappropriate!!

And Legend's were just a BIG MESS

I think that they should make the noises accurate with what she is doing I remember jumping to a ledge and Lara doing a sort of inappropiate (not in the sense of naughty) grunt for the action. :p

I don't really mind the sounds she makes...its funny sometimes though :p

CAISACO

^ Lol, I agree.
I liked TRA sounds because they actually did that. When you jump off of a high ledge and just about loose all of your health, she actually makes a grunt that sounded like that fall really hurt her :)

I didn't actually think of them as "sexual noises". They are more like grunts to me. In fact, I do them to when I bump into something, etc. It's all part of the game, they should keep them there forever! :tmb:

If you think the Lara grunt is annoying... *plays Kurtis grunting* think again! :mis:

I've personally never had a problem with Lara's grunt while she desperately makes massive jumps towards ledges, but I will admit that some of her yelling and grunting were unusually loud. I'll say that as long as she doesn't grunt in every one of her jumps - it's alright with me.

if i was gay and someone laughed at me being gay then i would be insulted

If you were gay and someone called you gay, why would you be insulted? They would simply be stating a fact. :confused:

Thanks for that info Myr :p


:vlol: @ thread title.

Reminds me of the time Mum came home from shopping early and hear "moans" coming from my bedroom. She went to investigate (thinking I was up to no good) only to find me repeatedly throwing Lara into a wall in TLR.....

Since then, If she hears moans coming from my room, she assumes its Lara and walks away.....Big mistake :mis:

Reduced? I think it was the worst ever in Anniversary, she was almost screaming at the times, I sure hope they won't keep the same sounds from Ann. The Legend's were better, but kind of unrealistic for my taste, I hope it'll be new, and not exaggerated.
