Oh god I really hope so!!!!. I loved this it was fantastic, It made me feel like Lara was a real character, And I love that and all the cool interactive stuff you can immerse into. I so so so hope CD do this, an interview with Lara, Lara, How did you survive so greatly on an island this brutal?. A great interview about her would be great, instead of it being about Karl saying who Lara is, how bout Lara tells us who she is? :P that would be fantastic. Someone make a poll or something!? D:

Just CD trying to rectify the "rape" issue. There's an official statement on the TR Website if you want to read it.

Would be cool if they did one of her before she boards the Endurance (or at least before the crash). You know, where she's still totally happy and a bit naive and has no idea what's going to happen to her.

Like she's doing a live stream on the boat!

larafan25 18-06-12 00:17

We're technically going to see that in the game, as one of the cutscenes is of her on the ship doing s video log.

Valentino 18-06-12 00:42

Maybe we unlock her video diaries and each one needs to be interesting enough for us to want to unlock them. Maybe the videos shows Laras more naive side as @Zebra said. Or she explains back info on her relationship with other characters.

Stevo505 18-06-12 00:43

Imagine Lara taking her video camera around the Endurance, vlogging about her travels, showing us her friends D:

Billy959 18-06-12 00:51

/ that`d be really cool! Just like that Cloverfield movie!

CrisSioux 18-06-12 01:26

kinda cool

GenyaArikado 18-06-12 01:53

I'd be happy with the cheap version of that (ie: making her a twitter). But set before crashing in the island, those Leon, Steve and that girl twitters for Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles were...stupid

TRLegendLuver 18-06-12 05:28

I think the idea of them doing that is a great idea. Seeing her show videos as rewards for collecting certain items in the environment and earning certain achievements. Now that would be a reward worth getting instead of unlockable bikinis. :tmb:

Dustie 18-06-12 15:07

I'm very pessimistic. I don't even understand how is this still a Tomb Raider game. They evidently flushed out the guts of the title. All that there seems to be left is the name. Lara isn't even Lara anymore - she has doubts regarding her situation in the trailer, which in the light of her original bio would not make sense (as she was of younger age than pictured in the new game, when she survived in Himalayas), so they mean to have a new one for her. Crystal openly admit back during Legend developement they disliked how they original game played. Now they're making her say 'I hate tombs' in the new trailer. If they really consider the original Tomb Raider to be so terrible, why not put your actions where your mouth is and make it an original game without using the Tomb Raider and Lara Croft names, huh? Obviously they won't do that, sure, but why pretend it's a Tomb Raider game when they don't want it to be one to begin with... Seriously, I fail to understand what are they trying to do with the franchise, there was soooo much potential in the original gameplay, that for them to just turn sideways with everything is hard to accept.

In Lara's original bio she was 21 at the time of surviving in the Himalayas. I also doubt she was having the time of her life exploring tombs and being jolly. She probably didn't have any dual pistols to whip out either.

Why should Lara enjoy tombs in the situation she is in? And why should we take that line seriously in the first place?

And why is a game about exploring an island wilderness to solve some ancient mystery not considered Tomb Raider no matter how easy or linear the game may look?

Aren't we supposed to get a podcast this week? :confused:

God, so much buzz for nothing. I really donŽt get it. If there will be cinematics library like in Legend or Anniversrary I want that cutscene to be called When You Put Your Hands On Me...

Thanks guys. :hug:

And to that video diary of Lara, it really is a good idea. They should made the biographies in unlockables (if there will be any) in form of videos, imo.
Like:
Lara: And this is my best friend Sam. We know each other since high school...say Hi, Sam!
Sam: YaŽknow I still hate you for stealing the Best Student award from me...
Lara: Not as much as I hate your fashionable clothes...

Sam: **** you bitch your tank tops are gay and make you look like a whore.
Lara: Bring it, bug eyed slut.
Sam: WTF YOU JUST CALL ME?
Lara: YOU HEARD ME YOU FLY EYED ****!
Sam: AARGH!!!
Lara: *takes out army knife*

:vlol: :P

LNSNHGTDS 18-06-12 17:18

I like how they clarified the "rape" scene just so that some could just shut it already!

The idea of the video-diary kicks ass! I'd love to see that, we're bound to get some unlockables by the way, they said we wiil be collecting Noh masks, remember?

She will end up the same, that's the point of the game.
The "I hate tombs line." isn't even to be taken seriously, she never really liked tombs actually, just look at how she's treated EVERY tomb she's been through... she loved archaeology and adventure, not tombs, which she still does.

There's even a historical/mythological story behind the game so there you have it, a more cinematic, realistic Tomb Raider, I don't see why even haters would complain!

do you understand the concept of irony? What better way to develop Lara into a "tomb raider" that to start her off actually disliking them? Right now, she is in survival mode, but once she toughens up, her curiosity will take over. When she makes that comment, tombs are good places to get killed. Later though, when she isn't constantly fighting for her life, she will begin to see them in a different light.

Alexander990 18-06-12 18:00

Let's just get over that so called "rape scene". I've seen much worse in games.

This! It's not even rape, and it was done before with Kurtis! Just Lara didn't kill him.

Karl on Up At Noon with Greg Miller. Expect a lot of talking.

Starts around the 6 or 7 minute mark.

_Awestruck_ 18-06-12 19:25

He actually claimed to have voted for it as Game of Show. :vlol: I thought for sure he had a massive boner for The Last of Us.

Anyways, Karl just tried to rectify the whole controversy that's recently sparked. It was a nice interview, but again Karl likes to go on about a whole lot of nothing.

LNSNHGTDS 18-06-12 19:37

The more they clarift the "rape" issue the better!
