So I have watched Tomb 'raider Legend cutscenes on youtube yesterday to remind myself of some events that happened there, I was really left thinking.

The Reboot itself in terms of story is nothing new.

The way I aw it, Tomb Raider Legend was just like some first drafts of a story you start writing.

Tomb Raider and Rise being its sequel, are the final outcome of a novel that has been corrected and re-constructed by professors and ready to be published...

but they are the same (different characters perhaps, but the very same story)

I see similarities in the broad strokes of the story:

  • Lara's father is an archeologist who encourages her at a young age
  • Lara's mother goes missing
  • Lara's father devotes the rest of his life to research inspired by her disappearance/death
  • Lara's father gets killed for his research but Lara doesn't know that
  • Lara grows up and tries to complete her father's research
  • Lara finds out what really happened and ends up avenging her father
  • Lara saves the world
Having said that, the Rise version is much more detailed and I actually liked it, but at the same time I'm really ready to move on from her family and never speak of her parents again

Incidentally, when I played the Blood Ties DLC, I felt like there were a lot of similarities between the story of Lara's mother and classic Lara (like her mother had the arranged marriage, was in the plane crash, got disowned, etc.). I thought that was a very clever Easter egg I'm definitely fine with more Easter eggs like that in the manor if it comes back again. I'm just hoping for an original plot in the main game that won't retread Lara's family issues now that everything is finally settled.

Oh these things. Yeah, some things stay the same.
Sure I'm definitely ready for Tomb Raider's story to move past Lara's parents.

Does anyone know if MotioninJoy tool works with this game? I don't seem to find any proper config setting to do so.

Damn. But I thought only Valve made games could get you banned :/. Is there anyway to check if I got reported?
