Oh god, I hate those kinds of bows. They are so ugly, and they remind me more of shooting for sport rather than survival... maybe she'll be killing for fun? :vlol: "I only play for sport."

Hairhelmet12 30-05-12 22:33

^Yeah!

I might like it if I see Lara with it, by itself it seems like a bit much.

I'm not pretty sure if I like or hate when you write that way. :vlol:

larafan25 30-05-12 22:34

^U luv it. <3

Well we've got tools progression, so it makes sense for the tool to progress to something more powerful like that, with realism and all...>_>

I hope there is a lot we can craft which isn't so story-centric...or maybe a lot that is story-centric.

[QUOTE=Luis Augusto;6203912]Maybe it's [I]too[/I] modern to being on that kind of island?[/QUOTE]

The Endurance crashed on the island and that's present time. I'm pretty sure that there'll be boats planes that crashed recently enough that Lara will be able to team up with them as they haven't turned all scavengy yet. The earliest account that we definitely know of is WW2. Would they have had compound bows at that time?

Supposed Compound Bow...

Yeah yeah Gurl.[/QUOTE]

I didn't even notice the bow was different in the Reach screenshot. :p I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same bow, though. The screenshots are one year apart so they could of changed it.

I don't it's the same bow.

Lara has the crap axe already on the day of the night hub, and on the second mission in the night hub she gets the red axe.

[QUOTE=BinRaider;6203926]The earliest account that we definitely know of is WW2. Would they have had compound bows at that time?[/QUOTE]

No, the first one was only developed on 1966.

Weemanply109 30-05-12 22:37

What's this bow shenanigans you're all discussing?

[QUOTE=larafan25;6203828]http://i663.photobucket.com/albums/uu356/larafan25/Emotes/ahhh.jpg[/QUOTE]

Did you actually just go out of your way to draw that image just to prove something? :/

larafan25 30-05-12 22:37

^Is that so?

WAIT/.

Which bow does Lara have in the new render?

Hairhelmet12 30-05-12 22:38

^What I was just thinking..

I can't really tell if it's the Swirly Japaneez one, or a different one.

Nemo_91 30-05-12 22:39

[QUOTE=Weemanply109;6203935]What's this bow shenanigans you're all discussing?[/QUOTE]

Compound bows. She'll have one on a new(?) render. [URL="http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=6203852&postcount=11219"]http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=6203852&postcount=11219[/URL]

Probably.

Also this is a kind of compound bow isn't it? Maybe it's something like this.

larafan25 30-05-12 22:40

^YEAH! We could get a crossbowy compound thing.

[QUOTE=Hairhelmet12;6203938]^What I was just thinking..

It's the swirly Japanese one. :cool:

Hairhelmet12 30-05-12 22:41

^Ah yes it is, yayie.

Ooooh, so she does get a compound bow! I though you guise were just speculating. O:

I'd rather her have a compound bow, than a crossbow. ._.

Weemanply109 30-05-12 22:43

Not keen on that look for a bow. :/

BinRaider 30-05-12 22:43

[QUOTE=just*raidin*tomb;6203942]Probably.

[IMG]http://www.clcweb.net/Crossbows/cblegendslbow.jpg[/IMG][/QUOTE]

That's a compound crossbow and all the mechanics would be different for Lara to use it. I doubt Lara will use a crossbow as well. It takes the raw survival out of it.

Stevo505 30-05-12 22:43

Crossbow? I hope that's optional. I'd rather use the regular bow.

edit - I just realized the crossbow has "Legend" written on it ;D

larafan25 30-05-12 22:43

It's too asymmetrical.

Eww...

Not fetch.

[QUOTE=BinRaider;6203952]That's a crossbow and all the mechanics would be different for Lara to use it. I doubt Lara will use a crossbow as well. It takes the raw survival out of it.[/QUOTE]

Yes...we have a pistol and a shotgun.

raw survival.

Lara's actually just testing the next Wii-V Sports controllers.

Weemanply109 30-05-12 22:44

I want more organic instruments of survival. Not much advanced stuff, tbh.

Tbh.

Tbqh.

Tbqfh.

Hairhelmet12 30-05-12 22:44

^stop trying to make tbh happen! It's not going to happen!

I bet the "River Render" will be the box art, Since we haven't seen it yet.

Lara_Zoz2006 30-05-12 22:45

When we getting river render

I bet this too, I hope so, it sounds like a nice boxart render.

TheRCroft 30-05-12 22:46

[QUOTE=Hairhelmet12;6203959]I bet the "River Render" will be the box art, Since we haven't seen it yet.[/QUOTE]

I have a feeling it really will be the box art. I can't wait to see it.

Btw, if anyone wants to read the whole article where the description of the render was: [url]http://www.1up.com/previews/tomb-raider-reinvention-lara-croft?pager.offset=0[/url]

I wouldn't mind advanced items near the end of the game.

larafan25 30-05-12 22:47

I hope stealth is fully fleshed out and a proper game mechanic. I want to stealth everything.

BinRaider 30-05-12 22:48

[QUOTE=just*raidin*tomb;6203967]How? O_o

Yeah but the bullets are severely limited so Lara uses her bow most of the time.

Weemanply109 30-05-12 22:48

[QUOTE=larafan25;6203965]U wunt duel pissdollz. [/QUOTE]

I'd expect for them to happen, because it's defined as an "iconic" attribute of the series.

How would she get pistols though?

[QUOTE=Stevo505;6203969]I wouldn't mind advanced items near the end of the game.[/QUOTE]

Maybe, but not too much. The reach picture and the recent screens from the E3 Judges week got me skeptical. I don't want tech, tbh.

I am really wondering how she'll find a working video camera on the island... that doesn't make much sense to me :p

The island has pistols.

I think she just records her voice...But...hmm..maybe

All we know is she does a video log in the ship, but the loading screens were voice recordings.

R u a pistoll? [QUOTE=Stevo505;6203981]I am really wondering how she'll find a working video camera on the island... that doesn't make much sense to me :p[/QUOTE]

Well, maybe one of the crew members have a camera for their venture? It makes sense, to take videos and pictures stuff.

But wasn't there a concept art/screen/whatever of her sitting down, recording herself? It even looked like there was a screen so she could see what she was recording.

^ Yeah, but wouldn't it have been destroyed in the wreckage?

[QUOTE]Tomb Raider is meant to represent the crucible in which Lara's weakness and fear are burned away, and this journey was the starting point for the game's entire premise. [B]Crystal Dynamics began development of Tomb Raider with a series of [U]concept paintings[/U] that depict Lara's transformation from desperate shipwreck survivor to self-reliant adventurer.[/B] One image captures her applying a bandage to an injured arm by tearing a strip of medical gauze with her teeth. Another, taken from near the end of the cycle, features something more like the heroine players expect. Seen from behind, her stance is defiant as she stands astride a stream, a compound bow in hand, gazing at an unseen point beyond the horizon. Her back is criss-crossed by fresh scars and her clothing is tattered at the edges, but her body language speaks volumes: She's no one to be crossed.[/QUOTE]

If they only drew a concept painting for this idea, for all we know they might not of made a render out of it yet or they could of thrown the idea out altogether. That would suck. :/

larafan25 30-05-12 22:52

[QUOTE=Stevo505;6203988]But wasn't there a concept art/screen/whatever of her sitting down, recording herself? It even looked like there was a screen so she could see what she was recording.[/QUOTE]

There is a shot of her (concept art) sitting in a cave (much like the one we see in the trailer teaser) with something bright by her face.

IDK though. :/

[QUOTE=Mikky;6203993]If they only drew a concept painting for this idea, for all we know they might not of made a render out of it yet or they could of thrown the idea out altogether. That would suck. :/[/QUOTE]

Yes, but the one of her pulling at the bandage with her teeth was accurate.

That's what the leaked script says.

It was PS Vita guise. Lara gots to catch up on her gaming.~

Yeah it definitely looked like her smart phone. Obviously there'll be no signal but she'll probably be able to make video logs on it. I wonder what it brings to the plot though...
