[QUOTE=Jami393;6612492]Cool. I wonder what the finisher is for the pick axe.

Here's a couple of other questions for anyone who can answer, seeing that I'm behind a hell of a lot of info and gameplay footage of the game.

Who are these two people in this wallpaper?

Another one is, who is this Sam character?[/QUOTE]
Roth is the left one, thinking something. His full name is Conrad Roth and he is a father figure to Lara, also he is the captain of the Endurance.

Sam is the girl who loves to eat Orange. She is held captive and Lara's mission is so save her from Father Mathias and collect some orange for her. [COLOR=White]Collecting part is not true though. :p[/COLOR]

The guy on the left is Roth. No idea who anyone else is.

[QUOTE=Jami393;6612492]Another one is, who is this Sam character?[/QUOTE]

Sam is one of Lara's crew mates on the Endurance who gets shipwrecked with a few others on the island. She's evil and can't be trusted.

I might've made that last bit up :pi::p

Soul 19-01-13 17:23

No problem - I'd love to be "behind" and I highly suggest to NOT find out too much about the game - this way you'll be able to enjoy it a lot more :tmb:

About your other question:
The old guy is Conrad Roth, Lara's new mentor, no idea about the other one.
There are actually quite a few other survivors and each one of them seem to play a role in the story somehow. Sam is one of them and people here love her because she had a wonky eye in the Crossroads-trailer.

Spong beat me to it.

Wasn't Roth the old man in that very first trailer of TReboot

Is there a picture of Sam?

[QUOTE=Jami393;6612511]Is there a picture of Sam?[/QUOTE]

No. No one's [I]ever[/I] seen her. She's shrouded in mystery :pi:

Is that a joke or have Crystal actually never shown Sam to the public yet?

Roth is on the Left, Liam is on the right. Roth is Lara's mentor father-like figure and I don't really know who Liam is. Probably Roth's second in command.

Sam is Lara's best friend and stinking rich. Her family fund the expedition. She gets captured by Mathias and Lara has to save her. Most of us think she's captured because the Solarii think she is a descendent of Queen Himiko.

^ That's wonkey-eyed Sam. I think she's going to wear an eye-patch and become a pirate at the end of the game.

LOL, I was joking. There's plenty of pics and footage around of Sam. Don't ask me to link any of it though because I have no idea where any of it is.

Is Mathias the guy holding the knife to her in the image below? Also who are the Solarii and this Queen Himiko?

Tbh I think she's a cute looking VG character and better looking than Lara.:p But still her right eye seems to be going further than it should. Maybe Crystal have fixed the issue.

As far as i can understand he is talking about one bad and one good thing. Bad: TR will not have demo...

And good: MP will not require any online code so anyone who buy used game will be able to play MP.

[QUOTE=Jami393;6612638]Are you serious?[/QUOTE]

It did look like it from this one video I saw. It is rated 18 and CD are trying to be hard-edged, so I wouldn't be surprised.

Yes, Mathias is the guy holding the knife :) The Solarii are the bad guys on the Island who have taken up the some of the old mythology of the Island and worship Queen Himiko, the sun goddess, hence, the '[B]Solar[/B]ii'.

I wonder if the Solarii are trying to start some sort of cult, worshipping this sun goddess Himiko.

Perhaps not the ponytail, but mostly everything else.

Like what? Why would they bother to photoshop other things and not something that obviously looks bad?

Just look at this one: [url]http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/images/tomb-raider-screenshots/screen081.jpg[/url]

Everything from the lighting to the textures looks like it was edited in photoshop. We've seen this segment of gameplay on HD video, and it does NOT look that good.

I you use the ol', "oh, but that was months ago, the game will look so much better at release" excuse, I might have to slap you. :pi:

And I don't know why CD don't edit the hair anymore. Maybe they realized we are not as stupid as they thought.

That scene was rewritten, guys. There will be no Mathias with a knife kidnapping Sam on Lara's eyes, and also any "oranges"(apples) I hope...

I'm watching the footage from that area. It looks like all they did to the screen shot was upped the brightness. I don't see any difference in textures.
