[QUOTE=Mikky;6009355]We won't, but I'm not so sure about everyone else.

And I do care about sales. High sales means the game is successful and makes the company more money to make more games, so of course I care about that and so should everyone else, imo.[/QUOTE]

But I don't think we should be willing to sacrifice what we want or enjoy for more popular gaming trends which may have a better chance at keeping the series afloat.

Lukass 01-03-12 21:04

They should really start to reveal info now. Don't get me wrong, but I think of they are going to reveal info at E3, it's too late.

Say what? I have no idea what you're talking about. :vlol: When did I say that we should sacrifice anything? I was just stating that I think fans should care about sales because they are important, not that it should be the [B]only[/B] think we should care about.

I think I've found the weird loading screen Dark_Messiah mentioned.

^Brightness tests.

Lukass 01-03-12 23:00

[QUOTE=Phlip;6009597]^Brightness tests.[/QUOTE]

No, it's loading screen. Dark_Messiah mentioned it after the community event. He/she said it looks like when there's no TV signal or something and some text. I think this is it. Don't like it....

Rai 01-03-12 23:15

I really hope it was a place-holder loading screen. It's horrible.

Mikky 01-03-12 23:19

[QUOTE=Rai;6009630]I really hope it was a place-holder loading screen. It's horrible.[/QUOTE]

Of course it's a place holder. Even CD wouldn't do something that stupid. :p

larafan25 01-03-12 23:23

No guys, that's definitely the brightness test.

Rai 01-03-12 23:24

[QUOTE=larafan25;6009644]No guys, that's definitely the brightness test.[/QUOTE]

The one in the pic may be, but the one Dark-Messiah was on about isn't, and that's horrible.

@Mikky, you'd better be right :pi:

:p

larafan25 01-03-12 23:26

This is the photo Dark-Messiah compared the loading screen too...

[url]http://data2.blog.de/media/773/1152773_ecef56cd12_l.jpg[/url]

But he said there were moving bars and that really just looks like a brightness test. :p

But now seeing this picture...maybe...

edit: Why does a loading screen have an button prompt with the option to continue? I don't think that's the loading screen. :/

Reminds me of the TRA brightness test.

Lukass 01-03-12 23:38

^ It could be just a circle and sign "loading".... exactly like the checkopoints. You can see a circle and text "checkopoint" in the demo.

Vinkula 01-03-12 23:42

I am not sure is this really the true cover I've seen in Scandinavian internet shop, but it has already TR on their "Order" list. And it has PEGI 16. So is it correct or will it be 18? (which I hope).

It's 18. There's no way a game like this with so much gore and violence could be 16.

Vinkula 01-03-12 23:45

Okay, they might have a fanmade cover or a one they've done and put it there. Dno, it just caught my eye.

Lukass 01-03-12 23:45

I live in the UK now, but I checked some Czech websites and TOMB RAIDER is 18+ in the CZR.

scremanie 01-03-12 23:47

The loading screen is meant to look like a sonar or a radar, with Lara reading out notes from her current situation (clearly the current mission or objective).

I think that suits the games theme very well, and I'm excited to see it.

Vinkula 01-03-12 23:47

[B]@Lukass [/B]Weird. Well I think it's gonna be 18+ here too, when more content is coming into the knowledge of the shop + reviewers etc.

It's pretty weird, because I just finished watching the Community Event in Germany videos, and someone asked Meagan, whether the game is going to be really 16 or 18+ rated. There was some German guy from Square-Enix too and he said that the game is going to be M-rated.

jhs270694 01-03-12 23:53

dont they do a 17+? im sure they do in the UK at least?

Hmm, well I believe Square-Enix more than a online shop :D

NCFirebolt21 02-03-12 00:15

[COLOR=DarkRed][B]TOMB RAIDER[/B] will be rated MA15+ in Australia. That's the highest rating any game can get, alongside [B]Assassin's Creed[/B] and [B]Splinter Cell[/B]. It sure as hell won't be R18+ since there's no sex in it. Duh.
[/COLOR]

jhs270694 02-03-12 00:20

^
That and plus in the UK, age ratings are different than the US. In the UK there's an option of 17+, not just 16 or 18. Different countries will have different ratings, not all are the same all the time in fact its fairly common for it to be different.

NCFirebolt21 02-03-12 00:41

[COLOR=DarkRed]The rating system worldwide is completely different.
An example of this would be Forgotten Sands (dont' judge me, I just picked the first game that came to mind!). It's rated PG over here for mild themes and in the UK/US it's rated 16+.

So, back to TR, it won't be anything short of 15+ (here in Australia).

Anyway, PEGI gave the game rating as 18+ when Turning Point premiered so UK's rating is probably fixed.

No, there isn't. :confused:

The age rating used in the UK are these:

No 17+.

[IMG]http://www.esrb.org/images/ratingsymbol_m.gif[/IMG]

I'm sure I've seen the ratings on the covers covers of my game. its a black background with a white 17. Edit: might have been a movie. probably got it mixed up :o

[QUOTE=jhs270694;6009841]I'm sure I've seen the ratings on the covers covers of my game. its a black background with a white 17[/QUOTE]

Maybe you you saw it on an American copy of a game?

[IMG]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/f9/ESRB_Mature_17%2B.svg/80px-ESRB_Mature_17%2B.svg.png[/IMG]

ESRB is the only rating board that I can think of that uses a 17+ rating.

EDIT - Just saw the edit. Oh, right. :pi:

jhs270694 02-03-12 00:52

Probably lol nvm :p. ESRB is american as well isn't it? they have their stickers on a lot of stuff over here in UK, partly what led to my misconception. i wonder how all this works =S.

[QUOTE=Lukass;6009039]If there really is no event between GDC and E3, then I would expect the gameplay trailer to be revealed in the next few days. They said early 2012 - it is now. There is going to be an event - GDC. E3 is in June, which is not early 2012. So, let's wait and see...

[COLOR=white]and then be disappointed if they show nothing[/COLOR][/QUOTE]

In CD's view, early 2012 could mean E3 2012 too. Just saying. :pi:


[QUOTE=Lukass;6009072]I've just checked the exhibitors list and Square-Enix is not there, nor Crystal Dynamics. Our chances are small, I think.[/QUOTE]

In past, Crystal revealed their name at the very end of an exhibition. Beside, GDC says still more exhibitors to be revealed.

CrystalD said this-
[QUOTE]you can see our current jobs at [URL="http://t.co/1mgBtetU"]http://www.crystald.com[/URL]. we'll also be tweeting in the next few days about our plans/ presence at GDC - Amy[/QUOTE]

I asked-
[QUOTE][URL="https://twitter.com/#%21/CRYSTALjobs"]@[B]CRYSTALjobs[/B][/URL] What kind of plan? Does it include Tomb Raider?[/QUOTE]

They replied-
[QUOTE][URL="https://twitter.com/#%21/ShaikhSiddiky"]@[B]ShaikhSiddiky[/B][/URL] it includes hunting down amazing talent to work on TombRaider as well as our other 2 IP's in development![/QUOTE]

Well, we should be getting an R rating some time this year. So, hopefully it's implemented before Tomb Raider's release, then I'd say it will be given an R rating.

God of War director Cory Barlog is hoping to breathe new life into Lara Croft, as Square Enix studio Crystal Dynamics has just revealed that the industry veteran has joined its development team.

Barlog and the rest of the San Francisco-based studio will be working on a new Tomb Raider in addition to a "yet to be announced new title."

Barlog is best known for his work on Sony's God of War franchise. Following David Jaffe, Barlog served as writer/director for God of War 2, creative director for Chains of Olympus and he led story creation for Ghost of Sparta.

Lukass 02-03-12 10:22

^ What? :confused:

Probably TR10.

scremanie 02-03-12 10:25

Isn't that old news? He's the one that was hired a while ago to work on the games camera?

Lukass 02-03-12 10:27

The article has been posted today though...

Karl is sleeping now but before he went to sleep he tweeted this-

Looks like it is announced during his sleeping. :p

Says you. This is really interesting news to me.

This is definitely a good thing in my eyes. I didn't notice if it said what he is working on in the game, so I am curious. :D

Tonyrobinson 02-03-12 12:28

I think I heard this a while back nice for his involvement though. :)
