[QUOTE=jumper2009;6165177]Hitman is already a high risk in November. I doubt that they will risk tomb raider too.
Halo4 and the new CoD are the really big ones and nobody would care about the small fishes like Tr and Hitman at all.[/QUOTE]

The big games usually came out before Tomb Raider till AOD and Legend and Tomb Raider usually comes out in November so where is the risk? A couple of weeks after a purchase hardcore gamers are usually looking for something new to play, and especially as a Christmas purchase a game closer to Christmas has more chance. Hitman will not lose that many sales to CoD, it would probably lose hardly any to Halo 4 which is only on the Xbox 360 and a few weeks before Hitman is released. Hitman is hardly some brainless shooter/wartime romp, someone more interested in suspense, thinking and stealth will buy Hitman. Despite the fact most of the big name shooters with online modes get a bigger slice of the gaming market, not everyone is interested in playing that type of game. So the little fish turn out to be a different type of shooter or completely different type of game they can still get good opening sales if they are good enough..

I think people need to consider the demographic of the people buying these games. If you cosnider that, the competition goes way down.

[QUOTE=Tonyrobinson;6165102]HMV have updated their site to October 5th too. I know this is a place holder but I think the release date is definitely just around the corner with all these new dates popping up at the same time. :)[/QUOTE]

:jmp:Great to see an October release date. Though its not going to happen on 5th, I hope its just around 5th. 2nd/9th. :D

And for the cover, I think only the Day One render is perfect. :)

seriously -_-

trlestew 13-05-12 05:01

Well there is a crashed plane on the island. :pi:

Probably just a mistake in mixing up the events prior to the first TR, and the reboot.

lcroft_lc 13-05-12 06:34

So GamesMaster covered TR before. So May 22 might give us something new. :)

[QUOTE=_Awestruck_;6165154]October 5th would be a nice release date, but that falls on a Friday.[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE=MyRaider4Life;6165171][QUOTE=Lukass;6165163]I hope for October too. It would make sense. [B]Anyway, what's wrong with Friday?[/B][/QUOTE]

Most video games are released on Tuesdays, I believe.[/QUOTE]

Maybe in America games are released on Tuesday, but that HMV is British and games over here are released on a Friday.

Lukass 13-05-12 11:00

But when they say the game is going to be released simultaneously, doesn't that mean the exact day release no matter which country you live in?

Why are you making fun of Legend cover? Compared to the new render it looks less realistic,thatīs true, but itīs still the most beautiful version of Lara, the superhero, imo. I love that picture :(

What? Was this directed at me? I am sorry but you have clearly misunderstood my efforts. Lara was never supposed to be a superhero, actually she is the definition of the anti-hero.

No, it wasnīt directed at you. It wasnīt directed to anyone concrete.
I just finnd that version of Lara incredibly pretty. I remember I was completely fascinated by that cover when it was released.

She looks realistic while still maintaining the same face ratio as old Lara :cln:. This reboot is shaping into the Tomb Raider game of my dreams. Here I am getting my hopes high again, but somehow I know that I won't be disappointed, because at least I will be able to control a gorgeous Lara Croft :D.[/CENTER]

Ah right, so it is a manipulation. I know you don't know who the model is that it's based on, but it would be really nice to see what she looks like before the photo-shopping, for a comparison. Maybe she looks enough like Lara anyway.

@TippingWater, Yeah, I agree. Crystal did an amazing job with this new Lara :).

Linoshi Croft 13-05-12 13:42

I still can't wait for them to update the model though. Some tiny details bother me.

I am still curious to find out who were the girls that they scaned in order to finalize her deign :D. Tomb Raider is finally an AAA game :cln:.

I predict successes, well if things go according to plan :D.

[QUOTE=Linoshi Croft;6165584]I still can't wait for them to update the model though. Some tiny details bother me.[/QUOTE]

Can you even imagine how the final model looks like :cln:? I bet the polished model they will add extra effects that will make her resemble more the CGI renders :cln:.

I haven't been this excited for Tomb Raider since Angel of Darkness :D.

Rai 13-05-12 13:47

@ Linoshi, Well, we'll see the updates at E3 no doubt. She's gonna look fab!
