Of course she's going to be the well known Lara again. They can't throw legacy of the franchise away. They have to keep the pillars. LAU was bad, this is going to be great. And she'll be inexperienced just a few hours in the game, not the whole new series.

How do you know? We know absolutely nothing about her history.


:eek: Sorry DP.

just*raidin*tomb 24-05-12 21:48

I don't see how the history or back story effected the game at all. It was a huge mess blah blah blah I'm not repeating myself anymore. :p

From the blurb in the TR1 manual anyway :D

Actually,I'm now thinking it could actually have been better had they started on Legend with a new character. Because they kind of made references to her past,but rewrote them somewhat. Imagine the freedom if she had been someone new.

Maybe people wouldn't have bought it though?

Mikky 24-05-12 21:49

I want Core Lara back. This game looks like a huge mess, tbh. I hope it gets canned. *trollface*

When do we get new stuff?

There's always potential they'll forget/change the pillars beyond recognition.

I think I don't see your point. So, this new character is not Lara Croft anymore for you. Or very little.
For me she's realistic version of classic Lara. She has everything Lara Croft should have. (That's my opinion, because braid and dual pistols doesn't make Lara Croft for me).

Would you rather have a game called Tomb Raider with a brand new character than with Lara Croft no matter how different she's from the previous versions of Lara?

And don't even mention Legend. That crap! Seriously...Legend wasn't Tomb Raider in any way.

I think this is what people are forgetting or worried about. Perhaps that she'll remain exactly as she is in the first 8 minutes of the game (the demo). This is the origins story we've never seen before. Okay there are changes, but Lara won't be The Tomb Raider at the beginning will she? I doubt she'll ever be the exact same as before where we get to see just bits of pieces of her character who was primarily seen as hard and 'bad ass'. She'll be more rounded all the time instead of the odd snippet of niceness and she'll be bad ass again, just maybe in a different way than before.

Thank you for that.

Of course there is. At the same time some things probably will be changed to the point where you can't recognize them. I can't be bothered with it unless it doesn't do the game any good, but I can see why some people would be.

Some people think May 31st on GTTV Pre-E3 show. Megan's gonna announce the E3 insider thing tomorrow and the game will be at E3. :)

Omg me too. It looks like a piece of ****. They have totally ruined Lara. First the braid and now this??? *doubetrollface*

Haha,no,it wasn't >_<

I don't care about the braid. More incorporating the original past of Lara Croft. Make her immortal,that doesn't matter,but after growing up with a character...hahaha.

Yes,Tomb Raider (insert name here),it doesn't have to be Lara,that's my point. At this point the whole "Lara" thing seems to be a hindrance,or merely a selling point,rather than anything that has added to the games.

Exactly! She's not a completely different Lara Croft from my point of view. Well, she is, but...she's still Lara, I don't know how to explain it. She is not that different.

1. She's recognizable as Lara Croft

2. Her clothes are almost the same

3. She's still British

4. She's still adventurer (or will become one)

5. She'll (most likely) get her dual pistols back in this game

6. She will raid tombs

So why people still can't see Lara Croft in her?

I'm going to ask a silly question...did you know she won't be able to swim and dive in Tomb Raider? :vlol:

Yep, which is why they're making her so radically different. To make her relatable, I guess. She's still recognizable to me, though. If you threw a different name on her (as well as the game), people would be on the defense calling it TR-ripoff.

Rai 24-05-12 22:00

@Lukass, I dunno tbh.

Isn't this the point to the whole origins story? To see the changes in Lara take place. From vulnerable 'every' girl to Tomb Raider. Or have I missed something?

We barely know her personality. That could make or break her (for me).

No, you haven't. That's correct. I'm glad they decided to make this origin story, because we never had one as a game (I don't count TR5 The Black Island). It would be extremely boring if she was kick ass and had dual pistols from the very beginning of this new game no matter how the story would be cool and graphics beautiful.

Well,real Lara RIP'd with AOD for me,this new person - I'll call her something else in my head,and that will solve that :D

Why would they ever change number one female character with an unknown one. Second, I don't think she has changed a lot. If you compare to classic Lara her features are exactly the same. The only difference I find is realism in shapes. I would love to see braid,pistols but I never consider those as a physical part of character.

Sorry that I added some more salt in your wounds :hug:

We are pretty close to E3. Just wait and you'll see. Then make a decision whether you really don't like it. We've seen so little from the game. We know basically nothing. I'm sure you'll find a few things you will adore :)

Yes, it is about that. TR9 is one big intro. But still, people will weigh new Lara against the old. Not necessarily as a strict comparison, but whether or not she strays too far from what Lara was to them. And in that, there will never be an overall or general consensus as to whether new is better than old, it's all a matter of personal taste.

As for me, I don't care. I'm more worried about how the actual game will be, not the main character who, in all reality, is irrelevant.

I hope so :) It will be interesting to play regardless.

That little trailer I saw recently where she's hanging (I think that's what it was) reminded me of the bound and swinging monsters from Silent Hill >_<

Alexander990 24-05-12 22:14

I am pretty sure a lot of people will take their words back after acquaintance with her capabilities.From what is described by Karl, it is the same Lara that we knew. Let us not forget that we have only seen 6min from the gameplay and that was only the beginning. Hence, no worries. She'll eventually become what we expect.

It was the actual beginning of the game. We haven't seen the gameplay trailer yet. It's probably coming May 31st so make sure you won't miss it :'D
