Looks like it might be one of those metal boxes we've seen in a few shots, which might be shotgun ammo...actually this makes sense.

There are a few of these boxes in the night hub screenshots, and the member who went to the Germany meet said Lara finds arrows (which we saw in the leaked night hub demo) and shotgun shells (which could be the metal box).

Being that she needs the shotgun to shoot the wall, those could be shotgun shells for that purpose.

Ooh it would be a cool little detail if we could burn it down with a flaming arrow :pi:

Ah yes, because it's wood...:pi:

Also, I think the pots from TRU are back, but we probably just shoot them or bust them with the axe, as there are pots here and there and they shatter.

I love this part of the demo, when he says "you can't hide from me outsider" (mainly because it sounds like something the AI in Oblivion would say) because she seems....just so nimble and odd to me. I love her crouch animation. I also love the fact that the player used a strategy of waiting for the enemy to reload before running in and pushing him off the edge, to conserve arrows I suppose, though I think we can pick them off of bodies.

edit: Plus the sprinkles of water on the screen when the barrels of water explode, and all the dust, even the large clouds of dust being blown towards the mountain as we run down the path and the drops of rubble and dust along the cliff side like in TRU Croft Manor Crypt.

Well CD said that they're more than one way of doing things. What if we need to collect oil from those oil tanks for the flaming arrow? :yik:

If she shot him with an arrow, he might have fallen off the edge, causing her to be unable to retrieve the arrow. I think it was a smart strategy the player used.

I'd enjoy that a lot, actually having to find the right ingredients or else you just have plain arrows.

Good point.

It's very brief, but does anybody else love the running animation with the shotgun? I just love the way she holds it. ;_; <3

Tomb_of_Darkns 16-06-12 02:31

At least we now see there are different ways of tackling a combat situations, so that's a major plus. I mean now every time i play i'll think of different tactics. Nice job CD. I might actually think before shooting aimlessly this time :tmb:

Yes, her animations so far have been great and fluid and have a different step, which is amazing. The only thing though is that sometimes the transition in between them are off, but i don't much.

I've mentioned it a freaking-million times and I LOVE IT!

IDK why tho. :/

edit: I also love the sound the crap makes when she shoots it, the wood with the barbed wire.

YES! Omfg, yes!

larafan25 16-06-12 02:34

TBH when I see her run with the shotgun it's like I get tunnel vision but then she's in a valley and a giant t-rex comes out of nowhere.

They really are! I didn't quite like the animations from the 2011 demo, but it seems they've improved them drastically. Still on the fence with the animations in the gameplay trailer tho. >_>

Not to mention the sound the rocks make when they're shot, sounds awesome! ...and the bullet sounds, my god. @.@

Wouldn't it be reversed?

The environment reacts to gunfire?

Tomb_of_Darkns 16-06-12 02:37

And i also love the animation where she is scurrying behind the destructible wall in the beginning as the guy is shooting, its brief but very details like these are nice.

I think they improved a lot since then, her animations seem smoother and tighter. And the environment seems even more alive and reacts to everything even more so than in the 2011 demo. Also! the water when she wades in the 2011 demo is different. It reacts to her body now and actually makes ripples. if you compare the part in the trailer with the one from the demo you can see a big difference. Its's great!..sorry i just love games that have good environmental effects. 0.0

larafan25 16-06-12 02:42

The only animation I can admit to truly not enjoying is the ledge shimmy animation. But I don't want to shimmy on ledges anyways, so...

MyRaider4Life 16-06-12 02:43

^Weird, I thought the shimmy animations were well done. It kind of looks like she's struggling, which is good, because I'm pretty sure shimmying across ledges requires a lot of strength. :p

I loved the water effects from the deer demo. They remind me of GoL kinda. (that pool area thing between bridges) The water there was just omfg. <3

Yeah that whole sequence with the airplane was just bad, nothing was fluid. And like when the platform falls beneath her, she looks down, but then the frame cuts to her holding the ledge of the plane. It was so choppy. I hope they are fixing that lol, everything beyond that was good to me.

Omg i love her ever changing running animation. Like literally it's never the same pace or motion O.O

larafan25 16-06-12 02:46

^IMO right up to her walking onto the plane was good, then the climb bit was not so much, and then when she walks away it's all great again.

I also love how fast and fun the ziplines feel. Reminds me of TR2 and 3 and I think there might be more of them up in the mountains beyond the night hub, as we found some wires in those screens which hopefully aren't the Thailand bug. :pi:

I also love her jump at the very begining of that demo, and when she passes across the first waterfall/ stream before the combat encounter, I bet there's a little nook to the right which might offer some bit of exploration or something of interest.

I bet it leads to the little village we see when Lara's sliding down the first rope. @.@

Also, I loved how fluid the jumping animation was when she jumped across the gap in the stairs. It transitioned amazing with the landing and crouch.

Yeah you know that feeling you get when you're on a roller coaster and you're dropping from a high point and you're stomach knots? I feel that when i see lara ziplining, It's exhilarating. lolol

Ooh that would be nice. For some reason i feel like when i'm going to get this game, i'm going to point out every little detail i love and just keep staring at it, making this game take forever lol Like i can already see myself wading in water to just see the ripples form XD lmao

Oh em gee I hope so! :D

Uh...I hope they don't give too much away in the coming months, I want to be surprised when I play. I know I still feel somewhat nervous about the freedom of exploration and QTE-heavy gameplay. But there seems to be really good stuff here.

OMG yes, and in the beginning demo of Lara exiting the scavenger den, when she walks along the narrow path around the cliff edge, I felt breathless the first time, looking down that steep hight and the simulation of wind and slight rain blowing at the camera.

I will most definitely do the same.

I think I want to make sure all three scavengers see me and know I'm there, and then try to take them out under all that gunfire. :D

I'll try to avoid the threads that have spoilers about the levels and story, but hopefully someone will post a thread of just the features the game will have, like any new things lara can do.

I just re-watched the "Broll" video, and I am really impressed with it :o. I cannot wait to see how the game will turn out in the end :cln:. Call me hopeful or hopeless, but I think either way the game will be solid. I loved the effects in the cliff demo :cln:.
