[QUOTE=Lukass;6961047]I see it in all colors now, all the crew including Laaaaaara Croft will now yell and moan about the horrible things they've experienced on Yamatai together, they'll become even better friends and the next game would be an adventure in which Lara will have to rescue Reyes, Jonah and annoying Sam for the second time :vlol: She will of course be more pissed, will kill even bigger hordes of enemies and voila - the next chapter of Lara's development is here :p Not.[/QUOTE]

Or maybe Sam, haunted by her experience, will spiral into depression and, ultimately, take her own life. Leaving Lara devastated and alone in the world, and forcing her to harden even more into a shell of the ambitious girl she once was. :pi:


:p

Hopefully they cover all the BS they want to in the comics so we can move on and get a better written sequel

I agree, here. But I'm excited for the comics cause I wanna see Lara globetrotting again. :)

pfffft :vlol: I see the big sign on the box cover - EXPERIENCE LARA CROFT'S REVENGE" :vlol:

Yikes. They still aren't done with those crappy characters and that halfbaked origin story? Hopes for the sequel tumbling already.

larafan25 14-12-13 19:48

Y THE ****. i THIS **** just hidden away in here? Is that really the cover?

That description kind of seem like every fan speculation, ever posted.

I wonder where this is leading.

I would tell you, but I'd get banned.

larafan25 14-12-13 19:58

Like. I kind of. Hm. Do you think the comic is going to gently fizzle out the last plotline and introduce the next story. Or do you really think the crew and Yamatai are going to be directly connected to the next game?

Lukass 14-12-13 20:03

I personally think there won't be any TR sequel story hints. They will again try to keep the story secret. The only thing they'll reveal is going to be the location(s) for the sequel. No story plot, no nothing...I seriously think the comic will be waste of players money and time.

larafan25 14-12-13 20:04

I thought the comics were going to be like... a real thingy though. Comics. Like, a new Tomb Raider comic series.

Mikky 14-12-13 22:32

They're experiencing horrific visions? Seriously? They couldn't make it sound more cliché and unoriginal if they tried. :/

**LARA LOVER** 15-12-13 22:25

Sounds like Lara and the crew are going through Post-traumatic stress, very hunger games. :p

The comics aren't really about giving sequel hints. They are simply supposed to show us what happens in between the two games.

Mikky 15-12-13 23:20

But it's logical to think that, at least in the last issue leading up to the game, we'll get a clue or two about where Lara is heading. :p

[SIZE="1"]Unless she's just like, "I changed my mind - I am going home. TBH." Fans be like, "omg, Crof manur!!111!" Then they turn the page and she says, "Lul, just kidding. U mad?"[/SIZE]

Rai 16-12-13 12:58

I like the way the first two comics are reflecting back on what happened on Yamatai and how the crew that survived are coping. Makes sense, imo. As more comics become available, presumably they'll gradually lead into the next adventure. The comics cover the time in between.

Anyhoo, Tomb Raider has won a Readers Choice award for [URL="http://www.kotaku.com.au/2013/12/kotaku-award-2013-biggest-surprise-of-the-year/"]Biggest Surprise of the year[/URL] over on Kotaku.

Yeah, I have that habit too now. Not sure if it's a good or bad thing. xD

larafan25 17-12-13 03:54

I was playing AOD yesterday, and I went from Serpent Rouge to Bouchard's Hideout or whatever, and when I got the the first conversation with Bouchard, I was feeling so pissy, I kept choosing the most rude things for Lara to say, and was so into how badly she was speaking to him, and then like... in the most strange, slow-motion sequence, in which I did not see it coming but was totally paying attention, he pulls out a gun, points it at me, and ****ing kills me! D:

wtf.

I didn't know I could die if I chose the wrong stuff.

edit: I REALLY want an artifact we can use in the next game. it might not even be a weapon, but something we can use. if it's not a weapon, then an artifact which provides Lara with some sort of special shield or something. SOMETHING a lil fantastical.

[QUOTE=larafan25;6962818]*boring AoD ramble*[/quote]

Take it to the AoD board, no one here wants to hear about you playing some rubbish TR game. This board/thread is for an entirely different rubbish TR game :whi::p

[QUOTE=larafan25;6962818]...an artifact which provides Lara with some sort of special shield or something. SOMETHING a lil fantastical.[/QUOTE]

Edit? So your post originally consisted of [I]just[/I] that stuff about AoD? :eek:
Anyway, Crystal would never go for that, it'd ruin the most important part of the game (the shooting).

That's one of the reasons why I like Underworld, wielding mjolnir was fun. It would be cool if TR went back into the magical stuff, instead of being "gritty" and "realistic"

rewak 17-12-13 10:33

Because an ancient shaman queen stuck in a rotting corpse controlling the weather and in need of a host to transfer her soul into was very realistic :whi: The actual focus of plot was actually no different to the LAU trilogy when you examine it, they both dealt with mystical beings based on real ancient legends, which is just another reason i found the plot reboot so unnecessary.

I agree with the first half , disagree with the other :whi::p
the similarity between AOD and TR2013 is that they are different to TR franchise , but when we compare them as "games" we find out that the difference is like the difference between poop and roast beef :cool:

A crazy soul sucking princess who controls the weather is realistic? :p

I'm happy they didn't go the Uncharted route were every myth has this explainable 'realistic' thing.

2/3'rds of the game was spent on this "survivor" tale and the the rest covered the magical side. The game couldn't figure out what it wanted to be.

OR...they just wanted you to think it wouldn't contain any magic so you'd be all surprised in the end.

Andes 21-12-13 02:45

Apologies if this is old hat, I had a bit of a look and couldn't find any particular mention of it...when did the updates for the Xbox 360 version come out, and is there a full list of them? I've just got my live account up and running again, and when I put TR in the machine it asked if I wanted to install updates. Didn't think anything of it, but upon playing the game there's loads of little tweaks here and there, which is making the game totally replayable (5th playthrough for me now). What I've noticed is...

1) Lara side-vaulting over obstacles - don't remember her doing that before.
2) More spectacular Solarii deaths.
3) A slightly jerkier aspect to Lara's general movement through the game, I can't tell if she's been sped up or re-animated but it definitely doesn't seem quite as smooth, can't quite put my finger on it.
4) Quicker traversing of rope 'bridges'. I definitely noticed this a couple of times, but then it seemed to slow down, or return to 'normal', on the next couple. :confused:

Is it all my imagination? What else can I expect to see?

larafan25 21-12-13 02:48

The side-vaulting over obstacles has been since the beginning. Though it's unnecessary. :pi:

Khaled 21-12-13 12:29

I wonder . When they'll reveal about TR sequel? E3 2014 ? probably no 2015 I guess.

Mikky 21-12-13 13:44

[QUOTE=Khaled;6965422]probably no 2015 I guess.[/QUOTE]

Don't be so pessimistic. It will be E3 2014.
