Doesn't have to be on her neck :vlol: It could be placed upon the journal.

But if she doesn't have the journal, plus a closeup of her collar would be neat.

^ Do you want something like TRU's cover but the leg part is cropped? :p

Love2Raid 03-02-12 20:52

[QUOTE=Rai;5953887]:tmb:

Or, at the very least have Lara in the distance during some action. I'd rather not have a pic of Lara's face close up or a full body shot, it's been done so much for TR.[/QUOTE]

Exactly! It's overdone, if they want to show that they are going in a whole new direction they wont put her there. I would put her on the back, somewhere, while keeping the front minimalistic.

I just want her collar bones and the necklace.

The front can be clean Lara, the back can be ****ed up Lara.

it could just be simple and only have the TOMBRAIDER title and the background be black, just an idea ._.

larafan25 03-02-12 20:55

I'd love (if she gets it back) one of the covers for a later game to be a closeup of her backpack with stuff hanging off, and a map sticking out, etc...

However, looking at how much time and effort has gone into showing of Lara and not the game...I think they'll go with her on the cover.

Lukass 03-02-12 21:13

[QUOTE=Spong;5953866]Why? You think she looks attractive? I don't think she does, not to say that the render is horrible or anything, but she's definitely not a looker. Not that I think she ever was in the older games either.[/QUOTE]

I didn't say she looks attractive, but she's definitely not terrible. Average girl you can meet in town. That's what I'm saying. She's not like "Holy ****, she has terrible face" or whatever.

Yes, something like that. Maybe with some grungy effects to make it look muddy/dirty. Or a shot from the beach area with the wrecks. Just not Lara and definitely not her huge face I would hate that.

True. But I think that that was just the first part of the campaign, the rest will probably focus more on the game itself. Now that they can share more about it... When you think about it, all games so far had her on the cover. It would be a bold statement to do it differently this time.

I don't think Lara's face is average. It's Lara...

[QUOTE=Charlie91;5954026]I don't think Lara's face is average. It's Lara...[/QUOTE]

Excuse me? :confused: Average means "normal" - not beautiful nor terrible. So I don't get what you're saying.

She has beautiful face.

[QUOTE=Charlie91;5954039]She has beautiful face.[/QUOTE]

Are we talking about the new Lara? Because I remember you said she's not Lara Croft anymore. So it seems you have changed your opinion. Still, she's not super-model, she's average girl to me now and I like it. She doesn't need to be sex-symbol.

I don't remember I say she is not Lara. My opinion is still the same... She is not the old Lara I love, she is new Lara I like and I'm looking forward to her new adventure. I don't say she is sex-symbol, I'm also glad that she is not Barbie anymore... But her face is really very nice... It's difficult to say somebody looks "normal" - to look normal means to have a pair of eyes, nose and mouth... but every person have diferent shapes. And Lara got really prety ones:)

I agree simple is better. And tomb raider is such a recognised franchise that if a gamer came into a shop and saw just the words: "Tomb Raider" he's already intrigued by the lack of a woman with big titties on the front cover, so he moves forward and checks the back of the box and bam he's sold!

Replace the PS3 flash with a 360 one and you're good to go :tmb::p
Although I'd prefer the red & white logo, and I'd put it more towards the top.

[QUOTE]Hey all!

I've got a stack of segment ideas I plan to record for the Crystal Habit Podcast, but I'm interested in hearing from you! What topics would you like us to dive into on the show?

Keep in mind, the "Take Five" segment answers pressing questions specifically about Tomb Raider. I'm looking more for general topics that interest you in regards to working at the studio and the process of making a video game. Feel free to be forward-looking however.[B] Once we've announced the VO talent for Lara, I'd love to have her on the show for example.[/B]

Let me know your thoughts! [/QUOTE]

As she said they might bring the new VO talent soon they might reveal her in early 2012, means February/March.

Spong 04-02-12 14:12

^From that quote, where are you getting "they might reveal her in early 2012, means February/March" from? There's no mention of any dates or even a time frame :confused:

Assuming that they will not bring her in podcast after the game release. As the game is releasing in Fall 2012, Combat revealed in E3 2012, Karl's comment on 'May Sux' means nothing at May so we might hear her voice in a podcast April/May. That's how February/March idea came from. :)

Mikky 04-02-12 17:48

Surely they're gonna have to give us something new before this month's podcast, right? I mean, I can't think of what else they could possibly talk about this month. Karl's prom night? 0_o

I really hope this game is full of enjoyable gameplay and no hand-holding.

I've been replaying Legend and playing UC3 recently...and OH BOY.

Sometimes in UC3 you notice too well, how the design of something has been compromised by the cinematic experience. Also, that moment in Legend Peru, when you exit the nook with the glowing purple blob, and the camera just say "Hey, so these r ur enemies, ur gunna go this way, in case u didn't no i sho u".

No. :/

I'm really afraid of the whole cinematic thing lately, a little too claustrophobic.

I'm playing UC3 for the first time now, and I agree. I hate how during puzzle-solving, after a while they'll just tell you exactly what to do. And I hate how the camera pans to show you where to go. Often you are being rushed and don't have time to enjoy the scenery.

Mikky 05-02-12 00:17

Um... Survivor's Instinct. Isn't that, like, the ultimate "hand-holding" tool? :whi:
