To me I get this feeling or vision of multiplayer be unveiled in that weird space after E3 where there are these video game conventions I can never remember the names of.

Uncharted 2 multiplayer was revealed in April 09 it seems, I'm not sure when the game released though.

That would of meant it was announced 6 months before release.

Mm, interesting.

WIKIPEDIA, PEOPLE! WIKIPEDIA!

It was released in October, so a 6 month gap.

Hmmmm

I think it'll be revealed a little but after E3 but not after 2013.

As for the trailer. There was essentially a "trailer" for the GTTV Pre-E3 show and when they talked new trailer that they were going to unveil, it showed a clip of last years Tomb Raider trailer hinting towards Tomb Raider unveiling a new trailer. It would be weird to just throw in there randomly I think.

I'm not counting on there being a trailer, but I think it's likely. However after the delay announcement I'm not entirely sure. We'll see.

If CD want the game to release in late March or April then they would give us a Spring 2013 release date. Crysis 3 also gets a Spring 2013 release date.
Spring 2013 = March 20 - June 20

Has Bioshock Infinite released a gameplay trailer yet?

Yes and two demo videos. One is 10 minutes and the other is about 15 minutes. And the were both released quite some time ago. :p

Infinite has tons of media released in comparison to Tomb Raider.

I see. Well poop. If CD don't release at least a new trailer at E3 I think they're screwed. But I think it's a very high possibility that they will.

And there won't be any trailer on the 31st.

I think it would make sense to reveal the trailer that way. I dunno, just guessing...

I don't think there will be a TR trailer before E3. GTTV every day tweets to tune their channel on June 4 on E3 day 1.

just*raidin*tomb 17-05-12 05:27

I swear I think there's going to be a trailer on the 31st. Just look at the preview. :p

I know. It's painfully obvious. They mention new trailers and show Lara's face right as they say it. But you never know, CD could have asked them not to show it because of the delay. Dunno why they'd do that though, since it would just build hype for TR at E3.

This.

Since there hasn't been advertisement for TR since E3 last year (for the most part), not many people are going to be expecting TR at E3 except for the fans.
A may 31 trailer would be a perfect reminder.... :o

lcroft_lc 17-05-12 05:37

Someone plz send me that GTTV link and tell me which minute they show Lara's face. :)

Thanks Stevo. :D :hug:

spyrostr 17-05-12 06:25

If they dont reveal a trailer on 31st May they should show a teaser or something like they did last year with the two pics from the trailer so they can easily build up the hype...
I expected a delay but I didnt like the way cd announced it... We were waiting for something new for a long time period and they showed us a screenshot so we don't get too much frustrated.. They could show us a screenshot like this ages ago.. It just doesn't feel right...
sorry for my english

They were probably waiting to see how the competition was lining up before deciding on a release date. So ages ago they would not have known it was going to take even longer. And ages ago the screenshot would have looked no where near as good.

Lara has appeared on quite a few magazine covers since last years E3, as well as in numerous magazine articles, developer interviews, online previews and all those community things Meagan keeps organising. Considering they told us last year they would be showing more at this years E3, I would think just about every gamer on the planet will know Tomb Raider is going to be at E3 this year. It is only some Tomb Raider fans that have selective memory problems.

@Lukass, 31st May is 2 weeks today. Still optimistic for the trailer?

Hun, yes, I am :) still optimistic and so ready for it :D What about you?

Phlip 17-05-12 14:22

I REALLY hope Lara has a sense of weight to her. =/

From the way she runs in the cavern demo it seems like she has a sense of weight.

Rai 17-05-12 14:26

I'm fairly optimistic that the trailer will be shown then. Definitely ready for seeing it whether on the 31st or in June.

I was thinking the opposite, she seems too breezy. :(

If all of us are ready & CrystalD isn't ready then it doesn't matter. :p

just*raidin*tomb 17-05-12 18:07

So I think we're getting a podcast today or possibly tomorrow? Ya think? Since Meagan seemed to be editing it yesterday and she said that she'd try to release one this week. So hopefully.

Not that many people care but I enjoy them. :p

Mikky 17-05-12 18:13

I remember her saying this Friday, or Monday if she happens to be too busy.

Meagan replied my tweet about 10 hours ago:

@ShaikhSiddiky Haha. I'm glad you can still understand me. Aiming for Friday for the podcast!
Seems she will try her best for Friday release. :)

Phlip 17-05-12 18:45

Is there ever anything significantly care-worthy in these podcasts, anyway?

Not anymore.

Mikky 17-05-12 18:47

They'll discuss the delay in this one, so it won't be as pointless as the others... Hopefully.

Should be interesting to see which pre-written excuses they roll out from the 'Developer Handbook for Fobbing-off its Fans'. If the delay gets mentioned I bet any responses will be more slippery than an eel covered in snot.

Love2Raid 17-05-12 19:09

Hmm hmm. Or a floor covered in butter.

http://i.imgur.com/W7tXP.gif

It will just be that same statement that came with the screenshot, but in different words. Or even the same words, lol. If there truly was an 'engine problem' (or whatever that rumour said) or they just don't want to go head-to-head with giants like CoD and Ass Creed, will they say so? Of course not.

larafan25 17-05-12 19:13

Might they lose more money keeping the game in studio for so long than having COD and Ass steal their sales?

I doubt that's the reason it's delayed. I think they just...have stuff to work out and need more time.

Love2Raid 17-05-12 19:18

I also don't think that's the reason. Some people mentioned it.
I don't see how it would be wise, since people can only spend their money once and they will have done so when the holiday season is over.

Spong 17-05-12 19:44

I'm reckon Crystal is up to its elbows in bugs and problems with their wonderful new engine that they haven't got a clue about. Swimming (or lack of) was an indication. In this day & age, how hard is that to implement? I've been enjoying swimming in games since Mario Bros.

I hereby rename TR9 as AoD2 and I will refer to it as such from now on :ohn:

*waits for larafan to heroically throw himself on a grenade to protect Crystal* :p

larafan25 17-05-12 19:50

Well we've had swimming for 8 games and how hard was it for them to impliment anything else?

I actually fear that you may be right :o *shrugs* :(. The latests screenshot looks OK for a pre-reboot Tomb Raider game, but they have claimed that they are going after realism this time around, yet Lara's position in the screen looks totally unrealistic and uncomfortable at best, also the trees are too low quality for my taste. I will probably change my mind once I see the game in action, but seeing how underdeveloped the game still feels I am more than happy with the delay :).

edit:Also Carbonek stop poking at my posts, I am free to express my opinion. With or without my glasses the game still looks like it's far from being finished.
