Default What the Hay? PC download only? No Mac version?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the PC version of TR Reboot will only be distributed via download? Also, any word on the Mac OSX version? If not I'll be purchasing the PC version and playing via bootcamp, but I'd rather go in the store and purchase a case if I'm paying 49.99 for it.


Also, on official TR site says Lara is 5'4" tall. Why did she get so short? Shes young, but only 21.

What do you see?



And yes, she's a bit shorter now to show her vulnerability (I hate that word since December 2010)

Apparently, according to a tweet from Karl, the PC version will be available on disc - depending on where you are. Which is a bit obscure. I'm thinking they will announce proper info soon enough. Edit, but yes there is a cover art, so that confirms there is a disc version at least .

As for Lara, it has been confirmed by Brian Horton (senior art director) that she is 5'6, the website is wrong, dunno why that hasn't been corrected. And yes, she is 21 in this game.

There is a disc version, but...doesn't mean the game data is on the disc.

In the worst case scenario, the disc would merely be a 'gateway' to something like Steam where you would eventually have to download the game (hence an internet connection will be required).

But let's hope that WON'T be the case, and the game data will actually be on the disc, not hovering somewhere over in the USA.

This.

I remember buying the hard copy of Sonic Generations and to my surprise, there was actually just a code to download it off Steam

Even if that was the case, why are people fussed about two damn inches?
I can't even.

Uh, I'd be pissed if that would happen.

I'd have gone mental if that happened to me.

That's weird Usually with Steamworks games, the game is on the disc and can be installed from the disc, but then you have to activate it on Steam and download any patches it might have (this is how Deus Ex: Human Revolution worked).
