[QUOTE=Underhoe;6540530]If I'm completely honest I'd rather see screenshots shown than videos. Simply because when I see a screenshot, I try to create my own gameplay around it, and it gives some sort of excitement - which may be either good or bad of course, but in the end it's a surprise anyway. This is a good way not to spoil anything (or at least not as much). Also I find it more pleasuring to see a HQ screenshot than a very bad quality video. ._.
All in all it looks like Crystal is thinking in a different way, as they seem to give no damn about screenshots or whatsoever.[/QUOTE]

I agree with you about screenshots. I'm really excited to see more videos of the gameplay, but I feel like I've already seen so much, and I want it to be a surprise. I'm considering not watching anymore videos when they are released, but it's gonna be so hard. ;__;

:)

Crystal is thinking in periods. They choose some content and then keep using again anf again for a long time. I'm not even sure what to expect. A new trailer and new gameplay videos I guess. You're right, they definitely don't give a toss about screenshots. They're neither new nor great quality. (The last batch of screens were ridiculous.) I wished they focused more on screenshots too.

I [I]also[/I] happen to fully agree with you. :p
Yeah, I find written info (articles) and screenshots way more exciting, for the same reasons...
But then again, they have been promoting this game like a movie since day one, lol.
[QUOTE=Underhoe;6540565]^Glad to see I'm not alone. :p

Are these guys playing the Den demo? :confused: Note that she has no bow, so it can't be the deer one.

A little question about these pre-order "Stage Announcements". ([URL="http://www.technologytell.com/gaming/files/2012/10/tomb-raider-pre-order-announcements-e1349880453375.jpg"]Click[/URL])

What are these announcements about exactly? More information about the DLC that comes with the pre-ordered editions or more info on the special editions or what? Anyone know?

just*raidin*tomb 29-11-12 21:17

I think has to do with other locations. So far we only have North America and Europe.

Mikky 29-11-12 21:20

Didn't Karl already explain in the podcast that everywhere else apart from North and South America would have the European editions? Not to mention that that would be such a lame announcement. D:

just*raidin*tomb 29-11-12 21:21

But nothing has been released officially. And there are probably more pre-order incentives in other territories to announce.

LNSNHGTDS 29-11-12 21:21

What's with the Europe/America difersifications?

They're pointless and unescessary!

just*raidin*tomb 29-11-12 21:25

Because different territories have tendency to like different things. Basically CD getting as much money as they can by taking advantage of that information. (not a bad thing from a business perspective)

I still don't see the point, I mean like what, are they gonna dress Lara in a US and a EU flag for the American and European version respectively :rolleyes: ...?

just*raidin*tomb 29-11-12 21:29

Duh

That's just the way businesses work, they like to split territories.

LNSNHGTDS 29-11-12 21:31

[QUOTE=Spong;6541171]That's just the way businesses work, they like to split territories.[/QUOTE]

So what exactly is each of the two continents getting?

Spong 29-11-12 21:36

[QUOTE=LNSNHGTDS;6541173]So what exactly is each of the two continents getting?[/QUOTE]

I don't know the contents, it doesn't interest me. As I understand it though, the EU has two special editions (Collector's and Survival) while the US only has one (Collector's). Which doesn't seem right to me, so I'm probably wrong :p

^That thread has the different editions and their contents.

[QUOTE=Weemanply109;6541437]Tomorrow will be your "receipts". :cool:[/QUOTE]

I'll believe it when I see it. :p

Geoff Keighley's latest tweet has me suspicious.
[QUOTE][B]Geoff Keighley ‏@geoffkeighley[/B] Working on top secret but amazing VGA moment today.

pic.twitter.com/hikI8V8x[/QUOTE]

Maybe the new Final Hours will be at the VGA's. Not sure if what Karl was doing today actually involved Geoff or not. It may have been just Zach Levi.

Just a suspicion.

just*raidin*tomb 29-11-12 23:58

I highly doubt Final Hours will be shown at the VGAs. That just doesn't fit at all. He's the producer of the VGAs anyway. :p

I'm confused. What does that pic have to do with Karl?

It doesn't, I just figured that it may have something to do with this:
[QUOTE] [B]Karl Stewart ‏@CrystalDKar[/B]l On a redeye flight to shoot the next episode of @geoffkeighley's The Final Hours of @tombraider with @ZacharyLevi #supersecret[/QUOTE]

Which it probably doesn't, but it doesn't hurt to speculate. :p

Weemanply109 30-11-12 00:03

BTW: the "surprise" that you'll be getting tomorrow is much better than the "Final Hours" trash. :cool: Trust me.

just*raidin*tomb 30-11-12 00:04

Oh I see.

Underhoe 30-11-12 00:04

I wonder how you know all this. :mad:

From Eidos Forums. Driber made a thread there saying 'Something cool is coming'. Weemanply doesn't know more than us. :whi: Probably :pi:

:cool:

There's always PM'ing....

/false hope

Edit: Found it. :vlol:

Edit: Ah, nevermind.

Weemanply109 30-11-12 00:19

^What do you think you have found? :vlol:

[QUOTE=Rai;6541471]From Eidos Forums. Driber made a thread there saying 'Something cool is coming'

That isn't entirely it, though. There's more to it. :pi:

_Awestruck_ 30-11-12 00:24

[QUOTE=Weemanply109;6541475]^What do you think you have found? :vlol:[/QUOTE]

Driber's post, which is vague at best.

I give up, I've got something to do in the meantime. Apparently it's happening at 6 AM my time, an hour where practically no one is alive. :vlol:

Rai 30-11-12 00:26

^so what then...why would you...a wee man (:p) get told something before anybody else...I feel like this is the 'friend of a friend' thing all over again :vlol:

just*raidin*tomb 30-11-12 00:27

Same.

Whatever it is its probably nothing.

_Awestruck_ 30-11-12 00:27

[QUOTE=just*raidin*tomb;6541484]Same.

Yep. 6 AM? No thanks.

TippingWater 30-11-12 00:30

Will we get anything tomorrow?

Rai 30-11-12 00:31

[QUOTE=TippingWater;6541490]Will we get anything tomorrow?[/QUOTE]

According to Weemanply, we will - and Driber on the Eidos board.
