Have you seen the new yet-untitled game by Naughty Dog (http://www.gamespot.com/ps3/action/untitlednaughtydoggameworkingtitle/index.html)? I wonder how it is compared to Tomb Raider (the main hero as explorer, jungle and ruins theme, mercenaries, curses, etc.). It looks awesome, but one could say judging from screenshots that it's going to be more action-oriented rather than classic TR-exploration.

What are you thoughts on this? Do you think it's similar to TR? Do you think it will become some kind of next-gen TR?

Wow I just mentioned this was my favourite thing from E3 (in general chat, which is where this thread should be)

It looks like a cross between broken sword 2 and TRL. The movement of the character was so life like! I wish I had a PS3! Maybe it will be released for PC too?

Are Naughty Dog ditching the Jak series? They didn't develope Daxter so... NAUGHTY DOG! JAK X WAS MAYBE TERRIBLE BUT YOU WILL NEVER DITCH THE JAKSTER! DON'T LET THE SAME THING THAT HAPPENED TO CRASH BANDICOOT HAPPEN TO JAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAK!!!

Just watched the vid - its a total TR rip-off! the environment even looks like Ghana. Still looks cool though.

It looks better than TRL, the physics are way better and it looks difficult! Now if there was only a way to swap him with lara :p

TR8 will be better. I hope.
*Points gun at Naughty Dog pres* Cancel this one... work on Jak 4.

Let's just see what CD can do for TR VIII. :wve: On a side note; yes, this should be moved to General Chat.

Gamspot - E3 06: Untitled Naughty Dog Game First Look
...the game boasted some highly lifelike animation and a very maneuverable main character--a dexterous young man apparently fighting for his life in a jungle environment. The main character doesn't seem to be a fighter by nature, in his T-shirt, jeans, and sneakers. Apparently he's a treasure hunter--like a male Lara Croft.
:yik:

At one point he forcefully kicks down a door, and also pulls off a number of death-defying gymnastic leaps.
Which merits yet another :yik:

lol I didnt read the article, He didnt seem as gymnastic as lara, so I would be interested to see him move like that lol.

I loved the way he jumped on to a ledge, pulled up slightly then fired at the enemies. Lara should be versatile like that.

Is Naughty Dog REALLY gonna let the Crash Bandicoot incident happen again? I mean, The Wrath of Cortex was one of the worst PS2 games ever released. Nitro Kart also sucked and Twinsanity was cack. Tag Team was decent though.
PS: General chat.

I scanned ND's website for info but its empty. Their events journal was last updated in october 2005 - how rubbish is that!

But I did find out they are wanting to hire a ...

Next Gen Environment Texture Artist
If you're an exceptional digital texture painter and like to focus on what generally fills 80-90% of the screen at any given frame of the game - the backgrounds, vehicles & props - then this is the job for you!

seeing as there website is so out of date, they probably got one ages ago.

sounds like that game to me! henceforth I deem it 'Man Croft 1'. Anyone find anything else out about Man Croft 1?

I immediatly thought of Tomb Raider when i seen this. It looks really impressive tho!

This game has officially drawn my attention. I'm eyeing on this.

The one above is shockingly similar to TRL!

looks like he also has TWO PISTOLS like someone we know.

Eidos will have to really work hard to make the next three tomb raider games better than the last one. This game could become better than tomb raider if eidos doesn't post at least one screenshot of tr8 soon.

Looks great! I hope TR looks like this in a few years, but for now I'd like the Legend engine to continue being used. :D But yes, COMPLETE rip-off of TR! I wonder what he's doing in the jungle though, because if it's looking for an artifact, Eidos should sue! :p

Looks great but as said action packed. I would like some puzzles. Anyway the charater looks great as are the animations. If this comes on PC I would give more interest.

I made that up so we could refer to it as something other than 'untitled naughty dog game in production'

Anyway Man Croft is a great title. Maybe him and lara can meet up and show each other their secret artifacts......that they collected during quests :p

Legend of Lara
09-05-06, 20:58
I mean really? Is ND ditching Jak? Ready at Dawn studios did a great job with Daxter and the can probably handle the Jak series. I just hope they won't make Jak X 2. :p

ND Have grown up! Jaks not there's anymore by the looks, Im amazed with there new game...Im getting it!!!

Some sources have said Naughty Dog or Sony has patented the name "Jak (and Daxter): The Lost Frontier" :wve:

As for this game - it looks beautiful and excellent, can't wait for it!

09-05-06, 22:33
Let's compare the graphics with those from TRL on X360 - the ND's looks much more real but still next-gen. I hope CD will do a good job.

To be honest, that game looks like a the-game-i-wish-to-see-lara-croft-in. Just look at this! Of course, the main problem is that this demonstration is 99% percent scripted, but imagine playing a TR like this.

Oh, man...

You know that those graphics are PS3, and a little bird told me that it has a better processor than 360. Also Naughty Dog makes the most amazing engines ever I mean I only seen one or two other games look better than the Jak series, like God of War. And Legend did well but the atmosphere isn't as awe inspiring.

All I have to say is, I did read an article a while back that said they had plans to make Kurtis's own series.

This is a complete Tomb Raider copy, but still, it looks interesting as I'm planing to buy PS3, this could be my first game on it...
Some competitors can't do no harm; CD will look at this game, say: "tr8 should be better" and make a superb tr8... :D

Might be? Although ND only get there games published by Sony because they are owned by them.

I think Tomb Raider is to cartoony after thinking of this new game for a day. Lets hope that this game doesn't make it that big or I might give up tomb raider for this.

I will try and keep to tomb raider until this game comes out. Also I think that legend is now rubbish, but this was only today after I thought of making a fan site for this game. I am going to make a fan site for this game but I will only do this when I find out the name of the game.

Do you think that he stands out in the screenshots. Also do you think that he has more ploys than the enimies or is it just me.
