If someone likes those TV shows and movies then chances are they already know what the words mean :p

This is the only defence you have for ghetto lingo being banned but is it so hard for people who don't understand them to either ignore it or ask what it means? They do the same for posh words.

The reason ghetto lingo is banned is because it was being used to derail threads. A handful of people would start posting in ghetto lingo and then take over the thread because other people weren't sure what was going on or didn't want to bother posting something on-topic since it would be buried and ignored anyway.

So, to prevent this from happening any further, ghetto lingo isn't allowed anymore. It's the same with over-sized gifs or anything else that people abuse in order to turn threads into cliquey chats that alienate everyone else from participating in the thread.

I agree! I was so excited when that was announced as the Amazon pre-order bonus and then so sad when it turned out to be the hunter skin instead XD

Shall we get back on topic now?
 
Really? Well that's a relief. I heard it was only for PS3.

I should just buy an Xbox then because I already have the controler (unless the Xbox version is predicted to be the worst).

Keep in mind that you'll likely need to buy an Xbox Live Gold subscription in order to play the multi-player. On the other hand, playing multi-player should be free on PC (through Steam) or on PS3.

I might just go with the PS3, then. I heard it'll be the better of the three (TR wise) and in the big picture, cheaper. I don't particularly want it for PC because of the PC requirements and it (in my opinion) seems like it might be more awkward to control.

Wait so what is the actual reason? Yours, Rai's some other mod's/memberator's...? I've heard so many excuses I don't know which one is the official one.

Actually IIRC it was the ghetto lingo users that were alienated from participating in the thread by everyone else. At a push it was like 2 threads derailed by ghetto lingo users. By members complaining about ghetto lingo users, however, that's a different story...

If you would like to discuss this then please make a thread.
Now lets go On-topic:
I remember last year when TR got delayed.

I want them to show more Lona Delery tho.

Oh geez, I feel like changing my avatar.


On topic:

Fully paid off my guide and game~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

new_beginnings 09-02-13 22:34

People sure do like to argue here, don't they? :p

I'm so excited for the special edition guide. The gift that comes with it looks really good. :jmp:

Weemanply109 09-02-13 22:51

The Necki Menij show is excellent, genius, tbh, but y'all are going off topic. Which kind of advocates the point as to why these cliques cause thread derails all the time.

Wow, really :p ? Ghetto talk is banned, sorry but I find this really random, some English speakers might have difficulty with ghetto talk or slang but I don't think that's a reason to "ban" it.

!

The reason I gave, is the reason we prefer it if members use proper English (to their ability if English is not their native language). Ward Dragon gave the reason why it was banned: ghetto talk was often used to derail threads, overuse etc. She says it better than me:

But we should all get back to discussing Tomb Raider now.

Gamd1011 09-02-13 23:15

:off:: Do they give Demi a "name" in the Nekci Menij show?

Weemanply109 09-02-13 23:17

Are you guys being ****ing serious? Get out if you're going to discuss that show.

Off topic: Even though at the time, I was mad about ghetto speak, etc. I actually see Rai's point and agree [Though she is kinda derailing the thread herself by responding to these posts publicly on THIS thread. :whi:]

Ontopic: Anyone know if TR will be able to be pre-loaded on Steam prior to purchase? I don't want to start downloading on day of release, tbh.

*ahem* well, you know, the topic was raised and Ward Dragon and I felt explanations were needed and thanks for agreeing. And, I did say:

I think so, but I just wanna be sure. I've only ever pre-ordered Left 4 Dead 2 from Steam in the past (which did allow it).

Actually I think a lot of games don't allow pre-loading. They have to upload a special version of the game which is missing a few key files and then allow those files to be downloaded on the release day. I tried looking on the Steam forums but I didn't see any threads about whether TR will allow pre-loading.

It looks like some of Eidos' other games allowed pre-loading so I expect TR will too, but I don't think it's been confirmed yet.

This has me on edge, I hope it does. I shouldn't be worrying that much anyway, tbh it's not like I'm guaranteed to be playing on March 5th, I need to get my new PC in order first. :ton:

So, apparently three of our relics will be Noh mask (Noh is a kind of theater) . One of them is a Hannya mask...

http://24.media.tumblr.com/2a3fd7086...rfyto1_500.png

:vlol:

That was epic.

A Hannya mask usully looks like this https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/i...Tkw5JfPuvbFu3T .

Natla's head will be featured as an artifact on the island. Lara will pick it up and Natla will open her eyes and say "I've come back for you Lara", Lara will respond with "Wait didn't our history get erased?" Natla "Oh f***" *Explodes* Lara: "....Oh look a pretty rock"

TippingWater 10-02-13 09:15

I wonder if we will ever get to see this Lara again :o..

anotherAODfan 10-02-13 09:21

Honestly I don't want to see her again .

New Lara is fine the way she is - less of a caricature an more of a person

Shadowmask 10-02-13 09:23

Im fine with the old Lara, except, they need to make her more realistic looking rather than a video game character with big lips and massive eyes.

So so skeptical about what the Limited Edition of the Strategy Guide brings, can anyone list what exactly we get with it (besides the necklace) and what "in-game items" are we getting with it? Are they exclusive?

I know we are getting the Scavenger Scout and Scavenger Executioner characters to play in MP and there are lots of 'detailed' maps in the book. I think the Scavenger Scout is exclusive, I haven't seen a picture of it. I have seen the Executioner in a screencap in the single player game but not in multiplayer so i'm thinking that might be exclusive as well.

Weemanply109 10-02-13 10:28

Nice, anyone know if the codes for these DLC work on all platforms? I don't want to purchase this and find out it's for 360.

I loved her look in GoL. It was not only realistic but looked serious and mean. Like Lara should be. I would love the new slut to evolve into her.

BinRaider 10-02-13 10:53

I remember it saying "on the platform of your choice" but it didn't specifically state which platforms. I'm guessing it'll most probably be on PC though. Strategy guides most usually sell a lot more PC versions than PS3 or Xbox so they'll be stupid for not doing so.

I certainly hope there will be more Lara Croft games, parallel with Tomb Raider releases.
