Hmmm, i was looking at the spanish magasine pictures and noticed that i cudnt see any fingernails, on the clip where she's touching her glove. Im kind of annoyed and dissapointed, as she didnt have any in AOD either! argh..is it that hard just to add some fingernails?! :rolleyes:
Maybe she'll have them in the movie sequences,but not in game play..which is still annoying.

Just look at cartoons.
While in reality we have 4 fingers and a thumb, toons have only 3 fingers and a thumb, and not all of the characters have ears or a nose bridge.
Most characters don't have nostrils either.
The little details are what makes a good game great I agree, but from a technical standpoint (where breast physics don't always apply), it would be taxing on the engine, and probably expensive for a gamer to "have it all".
FMVs are usually action packed with cropped stills, so you probably won't see them there either.

The fact that Lara didn't have fingernails in AoD disturbed me a great deal. I don't know why but I found it extremely creepy. I really hope they give Lara fingernails in TRL, even if it is just for the in-game movies.

Be lucky they're not like Janice's! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif

Looks like she used crayons to color her nails!

She must save a lot of money with those crayons! :D

It's strange how in the AOD blooper reel Lara actually had fingernails, with black nail polish.

I forgot about that reel, I had it on my own computer. And I remember the nail polish as well!

Maybe Core thought the polish was too gothic for Lara! :D

LOL @ you guys!

I would think if she did have nails she would constantly be breaking one or two (but not whining about it :rolleyes: ) due to all the activities such as switching weapons,reloading, punching out bad guys, jumping the abyss to grab on with the one pinky nail left http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif hanging from and traversing ledges, picking up ammo, using keyboards, flipping metal switches, etc
;) :D

So she keeps them short for practical reasons - so short I didn't even notice the lack of them in the games. :eek:

I couldn't really care less if she has fingernails - as long as the game-play is good http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I don't reall see the need for fingernails. Expecially considering the fact that the game camera will be behind her most of the time, you would never notice anyway!

If CD is making a game like the newest L.O.K. ... believe me, you hardly see Lara so close that you can tell if she has finger nails or not. :rolleyes:

I really hope CD add fingernails. It's the littlest things that make a big difference. I also hope they make her fingers more rounded. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Kay
21-04-05, 14:25
same here. And they DO MATTER! to me http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-1.gif . might aswell add fingernails if they want the game to be mooore realistic

I think that adding fingernails would be rather pointless at this stage if they have not already done it. I would rather them focus the little time they have left to meet the supposed Novemeber release on removing any bugs that could ruin what appears to be a well constructed game (judging from the screenshots).

Her finger nails aren't really important for me http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
I'm already happy that she looks more realistic and it won't bother me if I'm playing the game and she doesn't have fingernails...

Fingernails aint too important. I mean, ive never noticed she hasnt had any before, except for AoD, she had really dodgy fingers in that game.

Kay

exactly though..im not saying its the most important thing...but it would end my moaning if she had some.
