People avoiding spoilders aren't that smart tho.

I haven't noticed at first though. :o

Not to mention that some people know who the ancient Japanese Sun Goddess is! You could have put that in white text too.

Oh Christ on toast, CD said it before I did.

Anyways, what is this? A bell?

Maybe a cage of some kind? Or just some architecture. Idk but them graphics look beautiful.

larafan25 02-10-12 18:39

I wonder if Lara can even push open that coffin, plus I wonder where this tomb is, what the outside looks like. Would be neat if it was just in a cave.

Looks like a cutscene to me, she probably opens it during that (if at all).

Duh, it's on the island obviously :tea:. If you want specifics, you'll have to wait :pi:

I don't give a flying crap about the pistols, we can shoot ropes! That's the mechanic Brian must have been talking about all that time ago! :jmp:

:vlol: oh you and your mechanics! It should be pretty fun. Maybe we'll see some rope swings in TR again.

The way the guy moved his hands, it made me think we'd be climbing them like Legend Lara climbed the horizontal ropes.

I wonder if we can stick ropes anywhere, or how that works.

Yes I would say it is a bell. These are Japanese Temple bells and they look quite similar to the screen:

EDIT: Lurrrlll. It won't post the second pic because it thinks I'm circumventing the censor :vlol:

larafan25 02-10-12 19:52

I wonder if we need to shoot the bell or something, though I doubt it because we're having more physics based puzzles. IDK.

BinRaider 02-10-12 19:53

Well it does seem to stand out quite a bit. I reckon it must have something to do as a device in the game even if it isn't part of a puzzle.

larafan25 02-10-12 19:55

Indeed that's what I was thinking, it's bright and shiny, lool.

Evan C. 02-10-12 19:56

She uses the arrows, with a rope tied on it, to shot and go across?

OH MY HOLY LORD, I AM SO HAPPY.

larafan25 02-10-12 19:57

I wonder where she gets the rope. Does she need to be by those beams with rope tied around them?

I was thinking the same. So maybe, the rope we saw on the E3 gameplay of this year, was previously shooted by her. OMG I still can believe how cool it sounds!

ZOMG! What if she can craft rope from sisal she gathers from the forest?! That would be so amazing! :jmp:

So, would this mean she can climb back up the rope she zips down?

Maybe, though it seems sort of strange, so far she only hunts for XP, so it would surprise me if she crafted rope.

If you look at screens of the night hub you will notice many beams with rope tied around them in different levels.

Maybe it's kind of puzzle.... like in TR 7.

It's remind me the bells from the temple in UC2..

Actually I think it will be more random than that, check this screen to see what I mean:http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/.../screen015.jpg

I haven't seen the night hub video in a while so you're probably right. But seeing as she has to gather resources for improving her weapons I wouldn't cross it out either.

Interesting.

Look at the beam with the rope where Lara is jumping, then look below her feet there is one of those other beams which doesn't have rope but has a round blue ring on it. At different levels. Hmmm...

Indeed, it's quite possible, maybe she gets rope from salvage.

edit: Like this maybe...

http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/g...8/jumpyjoo.jpg

edit: I'd love to be able to zipline over a hub and drop, to see Lara fall all the way from high up, and the camera might follow her if she's landing where the player is allowed to go.

I think that's the most probable suggestion.

Plus the tree you see right behind Lara's back in the distance, it has rope tied around it. So much rope, I want to wade in that river.

edit: Though it looks like the swinging crate attached to the rope below Lara may be attached to the beam on the balcony, hmmm...

Tonyrobinson 02-10-12 21:42

Does anyone know Sam's actresses name? I want to follow her on twitter if she has one. :)

larafan25 02-10-12 21:42

Oh, I would LOVE to know! :D

But we don't. :(

Nothing shady going on here... :pi:

I would like to know who the other actors are though so we can put face to name. We've already seen Whitman, two Russian recruits and Sam in action in the studio so it isn't like they are being kept hidden. :p

Maybe that's where the axe and torch goes when she is not using them ?

Evan C. 02-10-12 22:28

Nice, I didn't noticed that. I don't think the torch goes there, but ropes and some others could fit pretty well.

Rai 02-10-12 22:53

The ridges on the side wall under the platform look like they should be climbable to me and yet they don't appear to go anywhere, so maybe not.

larafan25 02-10-12 23:17

It should lead up to a flat bit, I think (based on other screens). Though They don't seem too prominent, so I'd rather them not be climbable and so hidden away.
