Pretty much this, I mean why visit a mine field if you don't want to get blown to pieces?

But still, we should all be more careful when posting.

yup.

Seeing the new gameplay bits, I must say I'm impressed. The cutscenes are really well made, and although every second word of Lara's are "Oh God" or "Okay" (which gets utterly annoying) it feels believable. I actually got goosebumps when we heard the wolves howl. It left me kind of scared and excited to see more, which is already a good impression.
I also love the in-game sounds, it's a very great touch that there's music while we're exploring, that we only hear the hard raindrops landing on different kind of materials, it is strangely relaxing yet frightening. This kind of silence is what I loved in the classics.

I really agree with this.the atnosphere in the hub without any overbearing music adds so much!

I agree, I was actually a bit scared, the atmosphere is just top notch!

I am sorry that I was the one to spoil this for you though :(.

True, but sometimes using white text is so tedious and annoying, at least for me :o.

_Tomb_Raider 04-12-12 14:52

Is it true that this video has some spoilers on Sam? And if so, is it anything huge? Because I soooo wanna see it, but I am not here for spolers. :cen:

I didn't catch it, but going purely on others' reactions (and accidentally reading a post with the spoiler), it's a possible big story spoiler.

Okay, I just watched it. Yes, there's a MASSIVE Sam-related spoiler. Frankly, I'm surprised Crystal would let something like that go public :confused:

Lara went dark elf, Skyrim style.

Damn, so I thought that the spoiler was in cut-scene, so I was like I'm just gonna watch the gameplay parts, and then that crazy reporter said that! :cen::cen: My whole life was a LIEEE! Damn! :(:( I just hope there's more to it.

You watched it? Bad luck. The spoiler comes from the narration, not a cutscene in the game. If I'd know you were going to watch it, I'd have told you to avoid the first minute and a half.

Whether or not there's more to the spoiler, I don't know. But I don't think it really matters, the spoiler Andy Farrant gave us in that vid is of the same magnitude as telling us Natla had returned in Underworld. I can't believe Crystal have allowed such an important story detail to be made public :confused:

Rai 04-12-12 15:09

^^ Maybe they're not so aware of what the narrator said? Or maybe, that Sam spoiler isn't so huge as we think, not as huge as Natla's return. <Based on lots of maybes I know :o.

Heartache 04-12-12 15:10

cause natlas return was such a surprise after the voice actor got a line in the first gameplay trailer :P

i dont mind that spoiler nothing too big imo. they were signs in some cutscenes we saw earlier.

I know you would darling. :hug: But it's fine.. I will just keep thinking what Karl said"there are many plot twists in the game" so this one is just nothing compare to what we still have to see... :whi:

Well the Sam spoiler sounds to big to be simply ignored during the course of the game. It's the biggest spoiler we got to date , if what I think is true, we can already make out where the story is headed.

So those of you who didn't read the spoiler, be carefull :D

Only TR lover 04-12-12 15:29

Am a bit lost in the forums 'cause of so many new threads? Was this the video we've been waiting? :)

YES. I would say big. :cen: Crystal should complain.
Also you don't need to watch it anyway. It shows the exact same gameplay thats in other spoiler free videos that have been posted today :)

You can say that again, this place has a lot of rules, written and unwritten. For better or worse though we have to obey them, for example, I've been banned two times for posting oversized images, I kept forgetting to check the size, now I simply don't post images :p ...

It's not massive, she's just related to a former Japanese ruler, it's certainly intresting but I can't see the "hugeness" in it :confused: .

_Awestruck_ 04-12-12 17:09

I regret watching that video.

On another note, has anyone else seen 1up's article? They mention a change to one of the scenes that we've already seen.

I realize it's probably already been talked about but it could play into that spoiler.

It is because we never knew why they captured her. In was a mystery. Thats somethink we would have found out at a later point in the game. We go in search for Sam but we don't know why they wanted her which is why were so interested to go on this journey with Lara and find out. Although we dont know the purpose Sam has though. Thank god

Oh, so, we're like just assuming that they abducted her for that reason or do they (the devs, or whoever we found out from) actually say that?

Oh, well then, since we don't have anything better to do until we get some more stuff, we can all create conspiracy theories about these new information 3:) !!! I've already posted mine earlier, what does anyone else think?

I think we've seen that, in the Crossroads, it's where she stands up, and her adrenaline (?) goes off and a guy with a torch blinds her and she shoots the other guy.

trfanX34 04-12-12 17:28

Could you people please edit spoilers out of quotes? I almost read that spoiler ;__;
I already know that Sam belongs to some kind of important Asian family and that's got something to do with why Lara gets on the Endurance from what I (unintentionally) read :[

I can definately understand people being mad or upset at spoilers not being edited in posts but in quotes too? I mean who reads the quoted text :confused: ???

I thought that was worth restating in a very distinct manner.

More people than you think. It's a general rule that white text spoilers should be removed from quotes.

Looks more like the supposed WWII base they've been talking about recently.

It was definately in the trailer, I mean, would they add the exact same thing twice in two different hubs?

(anyone who brings up the Mediterainean/Andaman Sea example will be executed :p ! )

Why don't CD make Lara in-game like Lara from the Turning Point?
I tried to edit one of the in-game pictures....

because they arent able to animate so many strands. there are like 10+ strands only for the hair hanging out of the ponytail on your picture :D

just*raidin*tomb 04-12-12 17:44

There's not a safe thread is sight it seems. Luckily I haven't seen or read anything yet today and I think I'm gonna keep it that way.

Eidos forums have spoiler tags and everyone is really careful there so I might stick to that place for a while. None of this pointless nitpicking happens over there anyway. :pi:
