Though she does look a lot different and a lot better with the bangs untouched :tmb: !

Sarah Ferguson (the Duchess of York)? Or Sir Alex Ferguson (ex-Man Utd football team manager)?

Can we have a moment for the monkey though.

Like, why is she on a monkey's shoulder? :confused:













































No, but in all seriousness. The idea of a young Lara learning stuff from a monkey makes so much sense, given her climbing agility.

Monkey iz awsum :ohn: !

And you mean why the monkey is on Lara's shoulder, right :D ? A monkey would not withstand 40+ year-old Lara :p ! (or Lara in any age)

I found it among concept of Tomb Raider: Ascension. It was in the "Drastic Ideas" section. Lara was supposed to have a companion and the monkey was one of them but unfortunately they chose a girl (which wasn't very far from the monkey, appearance-wise) which is arguably not cool compared to the monkey. The monkey was propably the model after which TReboot Lara's face was made :) .

It's the new cover for Monkey Business. (Black Eyed Flops' album. It's a joke. Laugh.)

^I feel like your Sam is looking at my Rika. They're eyeing each other.

edit: Sam is like "ooo dang" and Rika is like "not interested".

Yeah, that's where this beautiful face is from:

That app was a gold mine.

Reboot Lara's face is perfection, sometimes.

Oh sorry, you misread my post (no wonder, it was badly-typed but I fixed it now ;) ) . I meant that Lara was modelled after the monkey, which is bad because even though humen and monkeys are distant relatives humen shouldn't look like monkeys and vise versa :p !

That's what I thought you said. :p

I guess I like her because she's Asian, that alone "erases" her monkey-ness :p ! Though she does look a lot less monkey-er in your avatar.


Which game is she from by the way :p :o ?

Uncharted 2, she's from the Eye of Indra comic, but she features in the game as a MP skin. And she's the best. <3

Her voice, her feisty personality.

Intresting, I'll look her up, thanks :tmb: !

Valentino 02-06-13 20:30

Haha no way. I was just reading some old Official Playstation magazine which has a look back at Tomb Raider and there was an initial idea for chronicles storyline

Quote:

"The idea we nearly settled with was this: Lara's seemingly dead body gets taken to a remote island. There she is treated until she is fit again but she doesn't remember how she got there. The island's owned by an eccentric billionaire who wants to hunt the ultimate prey, Lara Croft. The whole game would be set on an island with Lara's goal to escape"
I had no idea about this. "The similarities are striking"

So, how many times have they changed the ****ing story :confused: ?!

The only thing that is present in all three (known) version is the island!

This idea sounds awesome, though I still prefer Ascension :tmb: !

larafan25 02-06-13 20:32

^That's a TRC scrapped idea tho.

OMG. That idea is wack, but would be soo cool.

In fact...hm.

Anyone remember that one comic page someone made of Lara, she was exploring a cave and there happened to be some guy on a computer, I think he was the villain? Reminds me of that.

Yes. Ug. :( Need her tank for Lara, and her shorts!

I want her voice as a custom hero preset in the next game.

Oh... I see, now I realise what Valentino was trying to say.

What you said about the comic book reminds me of a cutscene from TRII.

Though now he seems less like an enemy. IDK.

Aren't we supposed to be having a new comic series, as of the Beginning?

tomee 02-06-13 20:43

And couldn't help thinking about TR.
Could TOMB RAIDER's sequel's logo be TOMB RAIDER?

Oh, I see. Reminds me of Gustavo from Big Time Rush :vlol: !

https://www.google.gr/search?q=gusta...ml%3B448%3B250

I think that all we got (comic-wise) was that book which explained each of the crew members' reasons for coming on the Yamatai expedition but I guess you mean a comic series like the ones we had before. Well, the series ended and I can't say I see it returning any time soon.

Nice, hadn't noticed this pattern before.

Well, it didn't happen before so why change it now?

Nope, just that issue, it was like 40 pages long or something like that, not even worth the trouble to be honest... and the illustartion is more than terrible! Not to mention the writing...

Maybe, because the previous games were part of a much bigger continuity/timeline.

It's also happening to bayonetta for example.

^Also Jak and Daxter (the entire box became cool and blue). And Uncharted.

True, but I doubt that they were planning to release that many games ever since they made the first one so it's not like they didn't go for the red-blue thing because they were gonna make a third game anyway. Plus, Tomb Raider is already part of a series, all of the game set as example in that picture you posted were the first and second of a series respectively, Tomb Raider is the 10th so it wouldn't make sense to follow suit now.

Oh yeah, I had forgotten about that, it was on the back of The Beginning, right?

larafan25 02-06-13 20:57

It's a new series now though, technically, by some standard.

I can see those rules applying here.

But that's only story-wise. The older games still exist.

However, the AoD/Movie/TRilogy logo did got redesigned/recoloured so maybe they'll do it again.

It would be nice to be honest.

scremanie 02-06-13 21:06

The older games don't exist. That's the point.

motoleo 02-06-13 21:39

Can I please have the name of the music they used for the Japanese TOMB RAIDER trailer?

trfanX34 02-06-13 21:51

^ Which one? The Day One trailer?

motoleo 02-06-13 21:58

Found it thanks!

Played some TRIII & it has been years. I never knew how witty and sarcastic Lara really was. Before I was too young to know what emotion she was actually conveying and what she really meant.

I hope for this Lara to return soon.
