To be honest, the only reason I can see why their waiting is either:

1. It's going to be delayed.

2. It's so ****ing amazing what they're showing that its going to blow everything else at e3 out of water. (LOL NO)

But with so many games announced already and its not even E3 yet, and some great games at that, will there even be room for Tomb Raider to be in the spotlight come e3? Rahhhh i dunno. I'm not a professional but I dunno.

larafan25 04-04-12 22:40

Yeah....IDK.

I mean...

1. The cinematic things won't win everyone over a second time

2. If they show the game's exploration and large environments (which hasn't happened yet) they may surprise some people...

3. Combat will be...different enough to make people suddenly become interested in the game.

But IDK.

I definately feel the game will be delayed...but whyyy? :pi:

Mikky 04-04-12 22:44

I really don't think the game will be delayed and I don't see a reason why anyone would think that it will be. :/

Lukass 04-04-12 22:44

I'm the third one who believe and feel like the game is going to be delayed. There's absolutely NO reason to be so silent for such a long time, is it? That's not normal. The other games that are going to compete with TR have already out more stuff than TR, which is just strange. Even if they have something that will make us and the audience wow, it's still just a game if you know what I mean.

Because there's just so much silence and secrecy. They're playing it so safe with the media right now.

Plus I'm just feeling a delay. I don't know why. But if there isn't one then I'll be happy either way. Delays usually mean "we gotta clean this **** up". So it doesn't matter that much to me.

Lets be honest. Six months is not a long time at all. Unless the ad campaign is going to be really aggressive. That reminds me I know I usually see the game advertised when the movies are on tv during the campaign which is always cool. (not really relevant but whatever)

larafan25 04-04-12 22:48

Well CD want to show any new content at a big event, so that's why they've waited for E3.

Plus Aussie has told us that before TRU, we didn't have any footage of the game until E3. So as much as it seems weird given how long it's been - to have a demo begin at E3, and maybe more content between the short time leading up to release, it's quite possible.

I just doubt so much about this game though, as I'm sure everyone does. Some of it sounds too good.

Apple is super secret with their product, but that doesn't mean their will be some sort of delay.

So, because they've gone silent, you assume there are problems with the game's development? I think you might be jumping to conclusions, but okay.

larafan25 04-04-12 22:51

I don't think it's strange for people to assume something requires more work or focus because the devs are silent.

Yes. I know. I totally agree.

And do you mean that we didn't actually see the game in motion until the E3 before its release? If so, that's somewhat comforting. I guess we didn't notice it so much because all other media we got before it.

I do. I mean, there's been no other indications that there are problems with development. They reached alpha stage back in January, remember?

It's just an assumption. It's not like I'm perceiving it as fact, just a possibility. :p

Mostly because if it is delayed I'll be less upset if I plan for it anyway...this is how I operate.

Yep. I believe in the beginning of 08 we got lots of magazine articles, the first wave featuring the Mexico demo which we did not see. The second wave, coming before E3 featuring the Med Sea level. Then I believe it was the Mediterranean Sea ....

That is so strange to see. :p

I remember when someone posted that offscreen gameplay of the underpus room. ;_ ;

That interview is so boring though. No offense Lindstrom.

larafan25 04-04-12 23:03

KS: "The game just broke, so there is a delay, sorry everyone".

I can't get over how likely it is.

Uhh noooo....:/

I like how Meagan puts Karl's name as initials, because I read it and think Kristen Stewart.

Was it leaked footage? D:

Lukass 04-04-12 23:05

I'm also very curious what's going on with the new website. They said "a few weeks" a few weeks ago. :/

larafan25 04-04-12 23:06

A few weeks is anything more than 1 week I guess...

Mikky 04-04-12 23:07

I bet the new site won't even be that amazing. :p

larafan25 04-04-12 23:08

It'll just be a fancy flash site I'm sure...

with box art and release dates...

D: :eek:

You could say it was leaked but CD didn't really do anything about it. :p I feel like it was close to E3 though. I think we already had some offscreen undersea gameplay too though.

Also I just came across this video of AOD at E3. She plays so much better. I'm so sad.

Secrecy? What secrecy? They just haven't got the site done yet, I'm guessing. They'll release (if that's the right word) it when it's ready.

larafan25 04-04-12 23:12

^They just have to put media on it, it's done, I'm sure.

wow.

Imagine that as the final AOD. With just tons of tombs that looked that good, running and jumping cross bridges and rocks and ****, underground, picking up secret items and using them. With quick and responsive hand-to-hand combat and evasive moves. Would have been so sick. :/

That was a heavy loaded sarcastic remark... no need for that. Of course its my native language... My argument still stands, most doesn't count for all, regardless of what level of patience a person is. The last time i checked 'most' refers to majority numbers in terms of anything. The last time i checked a dictionary, one of its meanings is "In the greatest number of instances" quoted from a dictionary website. It's not the first time I misunderstood you so be more clearer next time, I'm probably wrong but you never make yourself clear to me.

You just hurt me by that, I took it personally. Ease on the insults next time. One thing i hate more than anything is someone insulting my intelligence, it winds me up really bad. Do it kindly i dont mind but not like that, it clouds my judgement and i cant reply properly.

Back on topic please, I had to reply for that.

So people would go crazy over it. Watch, when they release new info, everyone that's fooling themselves and saying they're not interested anymore will be on it like flies on ****. For people that aren't interested, they sure do come in this section A LOT just to say they're not interested. I'm talking on a daily basis people.

larafan25 04-04-12 23:22

Ummm....

What are the chances of there being two demos at E3?

CD presenting a combat demo...and maybe something else on the floor? Or?

just*raidin*tomb 04-04-12 23:23

Perhaps. ^ Gosh I'm excited to see combat... I can't even imagine Tomb Raider with good combat.

I know. :/ It would have been so much better than using the awkward analogue. Oh well. I mean it could have made the difference between Core still existing or not. How strange to think about...

Wait, that was D-pad in le works in the video? D:

How amazing that would have been to properly control Lara.

We'll see 5 mins of combat if we're lucky and the rest of the stuff is going to be shown behind closed doors.

5 minutes is all it takes to win me over.

I feel like...ug oh em ef gee CEE DEE.

They want to do a lot of talking about the combat, but they don't want to tell without showing, are they going to be at a conference? Or in chairs? Or what?

just*raidin*tomb 04-04-12 23:32

E3 MICROSOFT CONFERENCE STAGE DEMO??? ^ D:

But you can't possibly know that. :p

5 minutes is a lot by the way. Or at least its enough for me to decide whether its awesome. I just can't imagine a TR with good combat. I can't even fathom what the combat will be like, but its probably what I'm excited about most.

larafan25 04-04-12 23:34

Seeing as it's in the discussion...

How are CD going to deal with bullets hitting scavengers and Lara?

In The Last of Us it's like...one bullet kills...do you think this game will be the same?

leglion 04-04-12 23:35

I think it's gonna be more akin to resident evil.

You will live multiple hits unless it hits a vital part. It's more realistic, actually.

ohgwt

So...

First off I didn't even know this existed in RE..

But you're saying if you get shot in the head by some random chance, you will die? But not in the arm.

jhs270694 04-04-12 23:46

Like the head? 1 hit death? sounds fun.

This^ I'd like to have.

Head - 1 bullet - death.

Leg - 1 bullet - crippled, limited moves

Heart - 1 bullet - immediate death

etc....yay!
