I like Camilla's voice, but I prefer playing TR2013 in Spanish :)

Did anyone else notice the shotgun blockade to the side on the way down the sliding section before the beach? I tried for 30 minutes to find a way to get to it.

Seems like Tomb Raider insists on being run by slave drivers.

Honestly though, the marketing campaign and overall budget was just ridiculous tbh. Way too much money wasted on fancy marketing instead of just focusing on a unique experience for the series. The PR and having the title "Tomb Raider" in the game's name is marketing enough for the most part.

*sigh*

We don't know how much they spent on marketing or development.

Not an exact number, but we can see all the big-level marketing they did and use simple deduction skills to come to the conclusion that they spent a crap ton of money.

Honestly, TR2013 had one of the biggest marketing campaigns I've ever seen in gaming.

She is the second best voice actor that got casted as Lara so far :tmb: !

Camilla did really good. Far better than any other Lara out there. She had emotions, maybe that's why everyone thought Lara wasn't bad ass, cause unlike the previous one's she had emotions.

I do think she did a good job, but far better than any other Lara?? Nooooo :p

Well, Keeley was good, and so was AoD Lara, but the others just sounded un-emotional :(

_Ninja_ 14-05-13 16:38

Take-Two is apparently happy with Bioshock: Infinite selling 3.7 million copies. Which people have also said had a ridiculous marketing budget of $100 million. I doubt anything about TR cost more. IMO SE is just making excuses for their poor management in general.

This, Keeley, Camilla and Jonell are the only decent voice actresses casted as Lara so far, the rest were pretty bad to be honest :o ...

I think It kinda was...
All those posters on the stairs the huge posters on the buildings...
That thing they made in an event kinda like a tent that made you feel like you were in a jungle and you could shoot with a bow and an arrow...
And more which I can't remember right now...

Square has to realize that they can't have EPIC sales over a (Let's be honest) kinda average game (FOR A TOMB RAIDER)
but I guess It's because it was the origin story.
I can imagine the next games being so much better than this one with the upgraded engine and all that stuff...

But Lara WAS unemotional. That's one thing that made her so appealing.

I'm not saying SE didn't have unrealistic expectations (they did), but they undeniably had a massive marketing budget that I personally think was excessive.

"The publisher tells MCV Tomb Raider can repeat the success of last yearís Hitman and become one of 2013ís Top Five sellers."

SE seems to be contradicting themselves. Not only Hitman sold worse in the same timeframe than TR but it was also a "failure" according to SE.

So which one is it SE, failure or success? And why did their expectation then were 'like Hitman' but their expectations now are 7 million in one month. Kind of sounds like SE is bull****ting everyone.

I'll also throw in a quote by me from a while back:

So I'm going to throw a wild guess and say based on his reaction then his own game didn't cost any ridiculous numbers either.


SpyrosMonster 14-05-13 17:37

Does SE thinks that every game that sells less than like 15 million copies is a failure?

Are they crazy?

I'm not saying their marketing costed 100 million, but it definitely was a HUGE budget that wasn't necessary. No doubt all that marketing was extremely expensive. It's pretty naive to think otherwise.

I'm not saying it wasn't expensive. Although personally I'm weary of judging that based on personal experience, like how many adds I've seen, etc. I'm just saying I don't believe it's so expensive that 3.4 million in 3 weeks doesn't cut it.

If Batman Arkham Asylum can sell 2 million in a month and be a success and if Bioshock:Infinite can sell 3.7 million in 5 weeks and be fine. Then I don't believe TR spent so much more money that it needs nearly twice those numbers and in a ridiculously shorter time to succeed.

She had emotions! That just didn't stand out because it wasn't part of the game. The game was about exploring,shooting and saving the world. She was only more though and she wouldn't hesitate to kill who got in her way! Attitude I really hope they bring back in the next games!

*sigh* Yep. She was so mysterious and hardened back then.

You don't see Batman crying or getting emotional over petty things.

Batman is a superhero. Lara is not.

Which 'petty thing' did Lara cry about?

Shark_Blade 15-05-13 08:39

Who cares about superhero stuff. Both are antisocial and badass, that's what matters.

Caesum 15-05-13 09:14

I just wanted to say I love TR2013 and because so I tried to draw my own version of it's cover(for Mikky but oh I hope he won't mind with his new ps3).

Hope you like it.

No wonder her ship crashed.

Lara_Fan1 15-05-13 14:41

Has anyone noticed when she is in the water up to her chin. (In the Den or when she is going to save Sam from Mathias.)

When you press the camera button, she turns to the camera and coughs? I don't know why but I find it funny :')

I'd never tried that. If I ever play the game again, and if I still remember by the time I do, I'll give it a try :tmb:
The only thing I recall about those sections is the fact you can't do anything but walk forwards :/

Lara_Fan1 15-05-13 14:52

^
I found it out last night while I was playing it, made me giggle.
The only thing that bothers me is that she can't go under the water and swim. The fact you can only move forwards doesn't bother me.

klona 15-05-13 14:58

I hope they put like some sort of 'go underwater' when the water level is to the hip.
Like there are some stealth sections that depend on that.
