[QUOTE=Spong;6463171]Seriously though, come on. Crystal keep shoving all that 'defining moment' rubbish down our throats about her first kill, but to look at that animation you'd think she'd been slaughtering people left, right & centre without a care in the world for years :p[/QUOTE]

That's kind of true. I'd expect that at the end of the game or the classic Lara.

And now, please...tell at least 2 or 3 things you LIKE about the game. And be serious, please :p You reminds me of peeves sometimes :vlol:

The XP thing sounds interesting, I'm curious to see how they use that in relation with the gear-gating & exploration.

And that's genuinely it, nothing else I've seen has been inspiring. Don't care about Lara, don't care about Hollywood set-pieces, don't care about killing deer, don't care about QTEs, don't care about linear & dull gameplay that's strangled by an overbearing story, don't like the look of the seemingly unbelievable combat.

The only other two things I need for a passable TR, exploration/traversal & puzzles, I haven't seen yet.

[QUOTE=Spong;6463122]That GIF is over the 500kb limit :pi:
Plus I think that particular animation is one of [I]the most[/I] ridiculous scenes I've seen from TR9 so far. Lara sure gets over first kill quickly, quick enough to be ramming sharp objects into people's throats with vigour anyway. It stretches an already taut believability.[/QUOTE]

I agree. The only way that animation and "character growth" would make sense is if it happens much, much later in the game and if Lara went to experiences far more traumatizing that that supposedly "rape" scene. Or maybe at the end of the game it will be revealed that Lara was actually mad and killed her innocent crew mates, and based on this assumption the "undiscovered" island near Japan makes total sense :D.

We're going to see the two last mentioned things soon, so that will either make or break the game for more people, not just you. :tmb: And agree with the rest. Let's hope we'll see some exploration on Friday, fingers crossed.

It's the parachute demo, so I hope it won't last 5 minutes like at E3. I'm hoping for an extended version and since they said there's much to explore, I hope to see that.

So everyone's gonna be going mental on Friday? And then it'll turn out to be the same demo we've been watching for the last fifty years :p

You're wrong! We've seen the Descent demo only at E3 :p it's the combat and parachute demo, but it was shortened because of the limited time they've had. It would be fair to show extended version of it like they did with the cavern demo last year.

Spong 03-10-12 21:11

That made me laugh :p

You mean an extended version of what we saw at the MS conference? Nah, it'll never be that :ohn:

Oh yeah! It'll be nice to see that demo close out the game shows season for TR. :D

Wait, so no more shows until the game is out? :o

Tonyrobinson 03-10-12 21:48

In the newsletter today it says Meagan will be finishing her travelling soon with NYCC. So I expect convention season will end. :)

They can still show screenshots. :p
I think we've had enough gameplay videos for now.

We've had enough of cinematics, not gameplay videos. That's a big difference :p

SpyrosMonster 04-10-12 12:32

I hope we get an extended version of the parachute demo. IT WAS AWESOME!
And something tottally irrelevant! I played AC and it was awful I don't get what you like about that game...

CloudOfGlitter 04-10-12 13:05

Its gonna be a playable demo in New York? !:yik:!!?!When????!
I'm gonna go there in dicember so I wanted to play it if there's the oportunity :p

Well the game is really big and almost fully interactive.

[QUOTE=TippingWater;6463988]Well the game is really big and almost fully interactive.[/QUOTE]

I have to agree that's a good thing but the game itself didn't make me to want to finish it or even play it again...

I've had that feeling with past games. Somehow Assassins creed doesn't work for me...

larafan25 04-10-12 18:39

I have a feeling something...will happen or be said today.

I feel it in ma bones.

Yep.

pipermaru 04-10-12 18:49

I just hope they don't turn this necklace into something magical and super-duper-powerful like Excalibur and Thor's Hammer.

larafan25 04-10-12 18:50

It's been said it's not integral to the main plot, just has a bit of a side story.

Good to know, I'll be able to sleep in peace tonight thanks to you.

Bitch please, I have a master's degree on bananology.

Darn, my banana was replaced with an anti-hotlinking pic. To show that I'm really sorry about that, I'll give you MANY bananas: [IMG]http://www.nikibone.com/recipe/fruit/graphics/bananas2.jpg[/IMG]
