You're Driber are you? You absolutely know that?

What's that got to do with the number of Tomb Raider sites the competition is open to? At the very least, he could've made a thread here (or any other TR-related place) to mention the competition.

If we have a post, which is written one way, and we both have different ideas as to the context of the post. You're theory contradicts the post, and mine goes along with it, which one seems more likely to be true?

What has anything got to do with the number of Tomb Raider sites? What I posted was a characteristic of the competition which makes it more open, "widely open". You're assuming "widely open" is about how accessible the competition is outside of that forum.

Are you even allowed to do that? Isn't that advertising you're own website? Not to mention if the competition was held here I doubt Justin would be going over to other forums advertising the competition.

Nonsense.
We have no definition of what "widely-open" is supposed to mean from Driber himself. You perceive it as who is allowed to enter the comp, I perceive it as where the comp is available. Neither contradicts it.

We're seeing different interpretations of the phrase. You're assuming as much as I am. Why don't you post at the Eidos board and ask Driber to clarify what he means? Until he nails it, neither of us can say we're right. But I have a sneaking suspicion I'm closer to the truth purely because of recent discussions I've had with him.

I would guess that the official Eidos board would be an exception to that rule somehow, don't you? Especially when it comes to posts made by the Admin.

Okay, but the way I interpret "Widely open" allows what Driber said to actually make sense. What you interpret it as, causes you to think the it doesn't make sense (or as much sense) because you don't think one forum is "widely open".

It's a simple matter of positive vs. negative, you have a negative outlook on this (and everything).

Because it doesn't matter. Having a clear answer doesn't matter in most cases (and arguments), including this one because it doesn't matter. What matters is how we perceive what is said and the effect that has on who said it and what is being said. If you interpreted it the way I do, all would be well and fine, there'd be no nitpicking about what he said, as it would make perfect sense. But if we interpret it your way, there is a problem, or we have a problem with it. It makes unnecessary hardship TBH.

That seems to be the theme of the month, or year. Making things unnecessarily bad for ourselves, whether it's a big deal or not, simply because of the way we perceive something.

Quote:

Yes we can, though we may not actually be right, and it really doesn't matter.

Quote:

Oh, okay.

But really.....do you think anyone in their right mind would say "widely open" as in "All over the Interwebz" when it's only on one forum?

My interpretation makes more sense and is backed up by other information in the post, your idea is backed up by....doubt...and a negative view of what is written (as in it is an error or makes no sense).

Quote:

No, I wouldn't. I don't remember the forums being close before, nor do I remember links being allowed to be shared.

In fact there was a link to the first developer Q&A posted here and the entire thread was removed if I can remember correctly.

Spong 15-03-12 20:31

^Bored with the discussion now. Neither of us is right or wrong, that's the long & short of it, so it's pointless us spamming like this. I will quote this much though...

Of course they would. They're never gonna admit the truth because it shows them in an awkward, possibly even discriminating, light. The driving force behind the comp, as always, is to get new registrations.

Meagan replied my tweet just now and she said she is hoping to upload the next podcast on Tuesday.

There are always tons of info. 45 minutes plus full of informations about TR or behind the scene. ;)

Linoshi Croft 16-03-12 18:56

I loled so hard at the "There is :confused:"

And it's true, there never was anything that would make me "Ah, didn't know this, interesting..."

So yeah, agree with Linoshi.

larafan25 16-03-12 19:05

There were definately bits of info that surprised or enlightened each of us, in at least one of the habit podcasts.

klona 16-03-12 19:24

I hope the next podcast has new music and is in HQ. :p

Fixed.

jhs270694 16-03-12 19:36

So anything interesting happened today? Were the 'questions' answered from Eidos?

Mikky 16-03-12 19:42

So, the next podcast will be released on Tuesday? Oh...

Come on give them a break! You know how hard it is to actually unveil nothing in a 45 minutes podcast!.... It's super hard, but they do it so well.

Apparently not yet.

NRO. 16-03-12 20:32

OMG! I bought this magazine today and I was just browsing trough it and I stumbled across this article about TR! There are some new screens there and a wonderful shot of Lara. Scanned it immedeatly! :jmp:

amiro1989 16-03-12 20:35

Very very mean.

Rai 16-03-12 20:50

Going by the above two replies, NRO's post is a prank? I can't even see the pictures :vlol:

Photoshopped picture of Imogen Poots.

Stevo505 16-03-12 22:26

That was the funniest thing I've ever seen. Yeah.

larafan25 16-03-12 22:40

So....is anyone excited about E3?

I mean....are they going to be on stage showing combat, or in that circle thing?

Does it matter?

It's going to be so weird, seeing the game.

I wonder what the combat demo will look like and I wonder how far into the game it is, and I wonder how many QTE it will have. :pi:

Yeah...it'll be totally mind mashing. Or something.

larafan25 16-03-12 23:01

^Yes, it will be mind mashing, and blowing. There will be tons of people complaining! :mis:

Anyone know what this symbol means?

http://i663.photobucket.com/albums/u...n25/lala-3.png

I mean if I were to play the game, it wuldn't be much of a hint as I don't even know what the symbol means. It's saying to push the cage, but how would you know how? I'm sure it would be easier to just use a symbol which tells you the button to press instead of implying what action to do.

Also, now that we have seen the fire symbol and the cocoons highlighted, I'm going to get the torch and run back to the first room of the game and light that hanging cocoon behind Lara.

Mikky 16-03-12 23:02

It's a push symbol.

larafan25 16-03-12 23:03

Yes, the symbols are for people who can't read. :pi:

Linoshi Croft 16-03-12 23:04

Thankfully the fugly things are optional.

Crystal really do think we're a bunch of knuckle-dragging retards. Seeing crap like those icons is insulting, even in screenshot form. Thank Christ all that can be disabled.

I think Larafan worked that bit out :p. Maybe it's whatever is the action button,

And yes, it's good to know the icons are optional. Hopefully from the very start. :pi:

Lukass 16-03-12 23:05

God, this is all so boring :/ I don't even know why I'm even bothered to log on...

Are they?

I heard they were intuitive.

They go as you progress.
