I have an extreme urge to make an epic TR montage video of all the games. I would so love to if I could record TRU/9 at 720p. :(

Just got my Limited Edition Guide today. Love the necklace. I already skimmed through all the none walkthrough parts. Was surprised at the different equipment Lara get's that I didn't know about. It's so cool. :)

My guide just came too yay :jmp::jmp::jmp::jmp:

Does anyone have experience with ordering games from Amazon? I paid for two day shipping for TR and it says it should be delivered to my home by March 5th.

i got my guide from there and i got 3 days earlier then the estimated date! :D When did they ship it?

King.Louie 02-03-13 21:31

They haven't shipped it yet :l I'm starting to worry I may not get it on the 5th!

People will think I'm trolling for saying this, but hey, you guys always think I'm trolling anyway, so what the hell... :ton:

If I could be bothered, I could get a copy of TR9 tomorrow. No really, I'm not joking :cool:
But I genuinely can't be bothered because it involves me doing a twenty-mile round trip to a town near me to pick it up.

How lazy am I? :p

A-ha! You fell into my cunning trap. Who said anything about buying it? :pi:

I know someone who works in Blockbuster. One of the staff perks is taking home rental copies of films & games for free. They've already got their stock of TR9, including the rentals, and he said I could have one from tomorrow (if I wanted) until the end of the week.

I was expecting him to bring it to me though, he has in the past when I've borrowed games.

M1chae1a 02-03-13 22:06

Hehe I just got home from work (Sainsburys) and I was looking at the Xbox/PS3 games and on both the top sellers charts is TR!! :jmp: and they had the case (Empty :() and I wanted to read the back of it but I was just coming back from my break. I cook in the cafe and anything that gets opened (well some things) and is still in date at the end of the day we have to put a dot on the lid telling other cooks when to chuck it away and I kept going up too people with this pot of prawn mayo saying "This goes out of date the day TR comes out!!:jmp::jmp::jmp:" Maybe I'm abit too excited xD

Oh noes. I've been had lol
Nah, I don't really care about you paying for it or not :p But at least you'll have played it and then have full right to go "I told you so" at us. If that isn't tempting, I don't know what is :p
And who knows, you might find one tiny little thing to like about the game.

pikolini 02-03-13 22:19

Guys I need you to answer me those questions :)
Steam pre-load is only for those who pre-ordered? Because when I try to pre-load the game, I get the message "No subscription".
I am going to buy the game this Monday for the PC, so if I have the disc, do I still need Steam? I'm a newbie when it comes to Steam, so.... :ton:

You need steam to play the game regardless of if you have the physical copy!

Basically a YES to everything you said. pre-load only available when you pre order and yes the disc version also needs steam

What if you don't have a net connection? I know it's pretty much unheard of these days, but still...

[QUOTE=Spong;6681112]What if you don't have a net connection? I know it's pretty much unheard of these days, but still...[/QUOTE]

Easy - you can't activate the game. You need to activate it on steam. After you did that..

Steam has some kind of offline mode.

TRJTA 02-03-13 22:27

okay, probably really offtopic, but just now I was watching the Gametap TR Retrospective from my Tomb Raider Anniversary Collector's Edition, and noticed a screencap from just after Legend's release in 2006. I paused the video and on the bottom one topic name said:

[U]'Let's complain about Lara's hair" page (1 2 3 ... Last Page)[/U]

I literally laughed out loud xD and remembered that just before Legend's release the hair complaints started, and they didn't really stop until the announcement of the TressFX.

Ohhh the times :hug:

ItIsOkBro 02-03-13 22:28

If you don't have a net connection chances are you don't even know what Tomb Raider is so it's k.

_Ninja_ 02-03-13 22:28

PC gaming isn't feasible these days without internet. IMO. You will have to find a way to connect at least once to unlock the game. Then you can play offline.

This is kind of true lol

Mikky 02-03-13 22:30

I don't think the complaints about her hair are ever going to stop, tbh.

5 years time, Lara's hair moves and looks super-realistic, people complain about how it's [b]too[/b] realistic and they want TRU's hair back. :pi:

Thanks for the answers :D :D
And another question: I suppose the activation-code is included in the disc, isn't it?

If you are new to Steam are you new to PC gaming in general? Be sure your PC meets the hardware requirements.

Linoshi Croft 02-03-13 22:41

Something equally stupid. Her breasts or something dumb like that...

No, I'm just new to that Steam-thing :D
My PC can run the game, I've checked it on CYRI and asked a couple of people here in the forums some time ago just to make sure I really can :)

Something stupid like her skin tone or the size of her ears. :pi:

Ever PC gamer should have Steam though. If only for the discounts.

pikolini 02-03-13 22:48

[QUOTE=Dark_Messiah;6681142]Yeah its in the box![/QUOTE]

Thanks for replying! :tmb:
Now I get it :p So, when I get the code from the box, I go to Steam and click "Activate a product on Steam"! It's so clear for me now, thanks everyone for the help!

M1chae1a 02-03-13 22:49

I actually really love the bun. It use too annoy me when I was little when you saw her with the plait (sp?) in the FMV's. It use to confuse me because I thought her hair was short like it was when you played. Aww I love that model of Lara :p

pikolini 02-03-13 22:49

[QUOTE=_Ninja_;6681163]:tmb:

Yeah, now that I have it downloaded, I can say it's a REALLY-REALLY useful program for us PC gamers!! :D

I'm so proud of Crystal Dynamics, finally Lara is really back on top, and not just accidentally, Tomb Raider's on top in ALOT of places, and then of course all these amazing review scores:jmp:

It feels to good to finally see Lara reclaim her crown and her rightful place on the throne.:hug::hug:

TheRCroft 02-03-13 23:06

I wish I could ask Lara how does it feel to be at the head of the gaming table. Or on the top of the videogame industry. The view from up there must be nice :)
