Besides, just get the money and fill out the RSVP form, I don't think it matters where live, then just pay a flight to San Francisco.

People in the UK seem to be overreacting. The only reason this event is being held in San Francisco (other than anywhere else in the world) is because its to CELEBRATE Lara's winning star on the walk of fame at the Metreon in SF. Now I think that answers the question in this thread title.

Plus, don't most other countries hate freedom?

I think it is nice that the US get this event. I just wish the UK was getting one too so I could meet the lovely Karima and play with her....erm I mean the game :whi: nah jk.

I don't care either way, I probably wouldn't go if it was in the UK either way - I'd rather wait for the full game.

OMG! If I hear someone else say "Lara is British so the the UK should get everything first" I am going to scream. That is really bad logic because that basically says that a made up character's nationality should determine everything. Who cares?

i know right, thats like saying the harry potter books should be released in hogwarts first because afterall the book does take place there. :rolleyes:

this thread is so.... *BARF*

the game is being developed by a U.S. based team. and if it wasnt for the U.S. tomb raider would probably not be seeing the light of day or getting such critical aclaim as it is now. so instead of being ungreatful and hating on the U.S. you should realize that the special event is taking place in the country where the game is being made.

when it was made in the uk, events like this took place in the uk. but were playing with a whole new deck of cards though so stop being so immature and accept the fact that lara is an american franchise now just as much as she is british.

Demo, game, whatever.. Give US something.. I live all the way in Florida, and I have to fly all the way to California, it's going to be very costly, but hopefully worth it.

It might as well be on the moon for all I care--I live clear across the country from San Francisco--I have as much a chance of going as you UK'ers! People can complain about anything...

I think our american colleagues (or anyone else for that matter) deserve to have something special to make up for the fact that they get the game a few days later. In fairness, it would be nice if we all got the game, all across the world on the same day.

TRL isn't a product you just pull a few publicity stunts for, and then forget about it. You have to keep plugging it, month after month to get more and more people involved, and to release new information, and I'm sure there is going to be quite a few exclusive events over the next year (erm, and something about TR8 maybe?)

I would have loved the chance to go and meet karima and play the game, but i don't envy our american friends for getting the convention thingy.

I mean its not like us British have got the raw end of the bargain, i meen we are getting the game 4 days earlier arnt we? If anything i'm happy for the americans to get the chance to meet karima so they can come on here and tell us what she is realy like :D.

14-03-06, 11:57
I am not sure if this has been said before because I didn't read all the posts, but have you guys stopped to think that the convention is at an actual place of "business" in America? They didn't just build it last week to torment you guys, and if Lara hadn't gotten a walk of game, some other icon would, and THEIR fans would be going crazy over the event. Also, wasn't Karima at a convention in Germany last week? Come one guys....it is just a chance to meet a model and play the demo, and like you UKers have been telling us, there are just a few more weeks before the game comes out, so live with it!!
lol, don't take offense to this post:)

how many of the TR games did USA get before UK? or has Tr always been released at the same time in both countries?

Hey, dont blame us that we won the Revolution ;-)


Honestly, everyones getting so flustered. Big deal. I live 3 days drive away from San Francisco. In fact, California seems like another country to me. So what is the big deal? I mean, we all have other things to worry about then TRL, so get all that done before Legend arrives, because you know you will all be stuck in your basements/bedrooms/living rooms playing this game, with numerous pizza and chinese takeout containers around you.


I know I am....except the amount of food that I can digest while playing games is astronomical :-p.

Oh no, the innuendo!

Think about it. If CD is based in San Fran, and the CD team is meeting at the event, do you think they would want to stop production pace just to fly the CD team off to a foreign country? When the Meteron is only minutes away?
