I know most people here might not know who Rubi is, but
she's the most awesome new VG heroin from the upcoming
game Wet. She's pretty similar to Lara in a number of ways.
Both wielding dual handguns, although Rubi uses golden revolvers and a samurai sword.

I would expect Lara to get more votes, because we are all gathered her
for her. But Rubi is awesome, and I hope the Wet game does good enough for this to not be her last appearance.

I love you Lara, but i'm gonna have to say Rubi wins this, because of her
crazy midair shooting, and the revolvers are probably higher caliber than
Lara's twin 9's.

I can't say for sure because Wet isn't even out yet. But Rubi (though very VERY violent) seems to have been written with a pinch of style and maybe even interesting character traits that go beyond the violence. I think she has charisma.

A game character doesn't have to a morally grey sociopath for me to like them (I'm a fan of Leon S Kennedy and you don't get more 'boy scout' than him ;) ). Nevertheless I've found Lara too bland and 2 dimensional for me these past few years. For me CD's attempts to humanise Lara have had the opposite effect. I turn to characters like Rubi because they have that something that makes me see them as more than an avatar. I don't agree with everything I've seen Rubi do certainly, but so far she doesn't bore me like Lara has started to. :o

Like Lara isn't exactly the same. Well she used to be, before Crystal ruined her :pi:

But either way, I still vote Lara I guess, not that I'm basing that on who she is. My judgement is based on the games and, from what I've played of Wet, Rubi can go hang.

Rubi will probably be forgotten after a few weeks of Wet's release, like all the other "gonna be the next queen of gaming and be the next Lara Croft" video game heroines.

x2crazyidiot
30-08-09, 14:33
Wet stands for wet works, a situation in operations where things get messy and bloody, aka out of hand and uncontrolled. Thus why Rubi's so off the walls, she's gets her job done, no matter how messy it gets.

That's why I vote her. It's irritating how everyone's voting Lara purely because they like her more or because she's more popular.. Rubi's evidently more psycho and, well, better prepared for a fight than Lara ever was/is/will be

Why do you automatically think Rubi, or any other female video character for that matter, is trying to "be the next Lara Croft"?

Just beacuse they share one main factor, gender, and a couple of similar attributes doesn't necessarily mean they have been modelled on Lara.

Rubi's not trying to be Lara.

I love both for different reasons.

I would pick Lara though. She's just as badass, but just because she doesn't act like a ***** all the time doesn't make her any less cool. She's taken down rooms of mercenaries and mystical creatures. I'm not saying Rubi is a softy, but Lara can do anything Rubi can and has done waaaaaay more.

Its amazing how paranoid this forum is. the minute a game, or anything else, comes out with a female character in it, she is instantly compared to Lara, even if there is no relation.

All these things suck compared to Lara because they aren't her, but they are so obviously trying. They all suck for copying lara, the most original character in the world:

The Baroness came first. Roughly Ten Years before Lara.


And no one is comparing them because they're women. How paranoid is that? We're comparing them because they both have dual pistols, incredibly acrobatic along with pole swinging, and have to solve some puzzles. And Rubi is quoted as being a working class Lara Croft. So the comparison is warranted.

I know- I was being sarcastic. I'm just referring back to previous threads about the Characters I posted, who people said were "trying to be Lara". And I'm not joking- people see women with guns and instantly assume cheap knock offs. Its annoying. People go to great lengths to make characters and then people on this board throw a wobbly as its a women.

And they're not really anything alike.

One's a titled Brit- the others a working class Yank
One swears like a trooper, the others well spoken
One collects relics and trophies for fun, the other shoots people for money
One uses automatic pistols, one uses revolvers.

Just because they use the same weapons, doesn't mean they are the same. You wouldn't say that Jack Bauer and James Bond are the same as they both use pistols would you?

He was being sarcastic, someone made a thread awhile back about the Baroness being a Lara copy if I remember correctly.

And if you read the magazine scan in the Wet thread, the developer says they are trying to do something different from Lara & TR. So no the comparison is not warrented. While we're at it, Jill from RE must be a copy of Lara. Also so is Faith (ME) & Alice from the Resident Evil movies.:)







Seriously?

Honestly, they're both as badass as each other. Lara can take on jaguars and things where I bet Rubi couldn't take on all that. Rubi just seems to be good with running up walls and slowing herself down to get a few shots in. LOL!

In terms of which character will be popular and which character is better in Video Games, it'd be Lara Croft, but if you had to pick who would win in a fight, it'd surely be Rubi.

Exactly.:tmb:


I just watched an Elisa Dushku interview talking about wet. She called Rubi a working class Lara Croft word for word. And I realize women with guns aren't Lara knock offs. Alice is nothing like Lara, nor any of the other characters you mentioned. These two however are SIMILAR. Not the same. And the thread is about which you pefer. It never outright stated, "Since they're basically the same which one do you like more?"
And I already mentioned that the Baroness came first.
Yes some people have this annoying tendency to see a girl with guns flipping around to be a Lara imitation or homage. I'm not one of them. But the two characters are SIMILAR! That is obvious. Just because WET is doing something different doesn't mean that the two characters don't draw similiarities. Like I said, it's a Batman/Superman kind of thing.
