It's about TOMB RAIDER.

Whatever that means.

Did you fancy a chat about the new game? :pi:

Well, it's in the TR 2013 section, so. If this was about the whole franchise, it would be in general chat... right?

And no, not really. I just hate coming here to look for news about the game and seeing the pages flooded with TRU.

Make us talk about the reboot.

Okay.

So ziplines.

Have you guys noticed how, the environment, it feels sort of disconnected. In the sense that it's like, a set-ish thing, and then there are flat-ish hunks of land that we do stuff on. The ziplines get us between these. I see them in the night hub. I think there are lots.

Are you in favor of them?

They (Karl) told us we can literally explore everything we see. So no, not at all. It feels very limited.

Well yeah. I think places all exist in the game world, it's just that your actions are limited in certain areas. Like...hmm...what I mean is, it's like controlled exploration. Like, obviously I'd die if I fell off the cliff, but the fact is there is no way I could naturally get to places that aren't meant to be explored, even though they are fully-modeled and existent in the game map. So if I did somehow come upon them by glitch, it would probably be ripe with bad collision and invisible walls or just plain death.

tomekkobialka 31-08-12 16:44

^ I know exactly what you mean. For example, Just Cause 2 had a completely free environment to explore...you could visit every single point in the map. But Tomb Raider? It'll just be a bunch of hubs and connections I think. :(

Yeah, that's exactly what it's going to be like. The question is, how the hubs are actually massive and how much we can explore in each of them. I must tell, I fear it's going to be nothing too exciting. I hope what they call a massive hub is not a size of TRU Mexico. That is not massive to me.

tomekkobialka 31-08-12 17:21

Hmmm...I'm not too sure about the size of a hub, but what I really do want is variety. Each hub should be unique and exciting. They'll probably be the main areas of exploration within the island I think - I could just imagine, e.g., Lara coming across a map in some long abandoned hut, beginning a certain kind of "treasure hunt" where Lara has to solve different puzzles, ultimately resulting in her uncovering some secret passageway which either leads to the prize or...who knows, perhaps will be the starting point of some even bigger treasure hunt on the island. That's what I'm after when I mean "exploration". :tmb:

In fact, everything in the game should be "hand-made" - no repeated sections of map or anything, as that will just show laziness from the developer's part. Each path and hub should be different and original. Oh yeah, and have some sense of non-linearity. :D

Does anyone think this game will be 'fun'? It seems a bit depressing/'taking itself too seriously' to me.

Good question. Who knows? They've shown us such a narrow margin of the game that it's impossible to tell at the moment. Perhaps if they showcased one of the more 'free' areas, a part of the game that isn't so story-driven, that the fun would be more apparent. Up until now the gameplay seems very much like painting by numbers.

That's something I do have hope in.

Well somewhat.

It does seem restrain itself in a lot of ways.

But I think exploring the hubs and jumping around will be fun, especially with the controls and steering in mid air. And if that is fun, then having the incentive to look around for the numerous hidden secrets will be fun.

I think combat looks like it could be fun.

It's the parts where you have to do random-crap which don't seem fun, based on their context.

It's kind of boring crawling through a linear tight cave by the looks of it. But if there was more to the tomb, and you actually had to explore it, then it would be an important piece of something more fun. I think.

The game is 'fun', don't worry. For example, (if you aren't super-sensitive about killing animals) the hunting hub is very enjoyable. Aiming for headshots , sneaking behind the deers, shooting one rabbit after another, then some birds for change...

When you think of the open spaces from the classics (lots in TR3) and imagine such spaces in this game, do you think it would be more fun to control Lara in this game?

Indeed, that's part of the problem. What they showed so far is more like 'go here, cutscene, do this, QTE, go there, cutscene, do that, QTE and so on. So they really need to show those 'hubs' they have been talking about sometime soon (because I want them to :p), it feels far too much like Legend 2.0 with a 'realistic' Lara (realistic = constantly getting hurt and screaming) right now. >_>

Yeah, it's quite controlled, like you're walking on a film set instead of a 'real' environment (same problem the other CD games had). I hope the hub areas will be huge and I hope that they haven't made the path too obvious. It's fun to just go in a direction and see where it leads... I also hope they add loads of random areas, like hidden caves (that don't necessarily have to lead anywhere) and put some humour in it (especially because the story is so serious, it is needed), easter eggs (also ones that only TR fans would find :p) etc.
I also want to see some crazy OTT things that nobody has done before, lol. Things that people on this forum will talk about for years... :p

Right, that's something I'm looking forward too, but it won't keep me busy for hours. :p

The game looks fun. The only thing that I want it to have is slow motion moments!!!
