You can still hope there's information soon but expect nothing to be here until E3. That's how I feel. It's not a contradiction. I plan for worst and hope for the best because I've learned that if I do the opposite I will be disappointed time and time again and it isn't worth it.



@ lance

I actually really liked the story and I loved the game. I would go as far as to say that it was my favorite in the series, but I know that it comes with a lot of negativity from 90% of the public and fans so it wouldn't be a good idea to associate this new bright Tomb Raider universe with something that arguably ruined the series.

I know. I expect next wave of magazines as Karl tweeted he's planning flights to Europe and Asia...

Maybe, but I wouldn't expect anything until at least a couple of weeks before e3. Don't expect another wave of magazines next week or any time this month. That stuff takes a while and is probably put on hold until studios give them the green light.

I expect the magazines to come out some time at May. If there will be any of course.

just*raidin*tomb 12-03-12 16:38

Well that's reasonable. But not soon. :p

It may be Karl's definition of "right this instant" though. .__.

GameStop! Or GameSpot one?
Anyone has the link if its GameStop?

You keep changing like a weather! One day "I hope something is coming soon" + this ":(" smiley, and the next day you're convinced we're not getting anything before E3. So what? Man...

But they are not going to spoil EPIC E3 trailer? Are they? E3 is the biggest chance for them. The only way they can show something before E3 is by launching the new re-imagined Tomb Raider website. They could do it on late March/April but not May.

Bottom-line is I am afraid that we are not going to see anything before E3. :( The fact that CD is going to show the first media after E3 2011 is at E3 2012 is killing me. :( Why don't they show us the Wolf den demo or the leaked demo to us which they showed to some people? :(

just*raidin*tomb 12-03-12 17:50

I meant Gamespot. Sorry. There's a gaming store called Gamestop and I always get that confused. Just youtube "Tomb Raider gamespot demo" and you'll find it. I'm pretty sure he said it there.

The wolf den demo maybe we will see it at E3 . Are they will show trailer CGI ? like the turning point ? . I wish to see another CGI trailer with epic gameplay at E3 . What do you think guys ?

The leaked stuff was quit a time ago and was still in development, same with the wolf stuff. im pretty sure by now they at least tweaked it so they're not willing to show outdated stuff.

just*raidin*tomb 12-03-12 17:55

There's not gonna be another CGI trailer. Just a much more awesome gameplay trailer of course. ;)

Speculation is fine, but people should really learn to control themselves. Look at how people round here got wound up by the fact nothing happened on Feb 14th. The date no longer has anything to do with Tomb Raider, yet people here convinced themselves something would happen. And when it didn't, it was apparently Crystal's fault.

I don't think that's the same as what I'm doing.

What I'm looking for and would enjoy is a date, "expect content by this date". I'm just using what I know to suggest when content may start flowing so I can have that knowledge, it's not to get anyone else worked up though. That will be a side-effect of course.

Anyways, I'd love to see an AOD ark in this series, later on. Have something traumatic happen to Lara, something to remind her of or even surpass the island experience which pushes her away from raiding tombs, yet she's forced into it.

Less cities though, a lot less cities. The most fascinating part of AOD to me is how Lara is trying to stay away from the dangers of tomb raiding (or at least that's how it seemed) yet she's put back into the tombs. However there weren't many of those wild environments in AOD.

Anyways, I just purchases Alice Madness Returns and I love how free the platforming is, it's a nice fun game but I really hope TR compare in the sense that the platforming is more about running and jumping, timing jumps and measuring distance and height. No more sticky ledges, that's not entertaining.

It would be nice to be given dates, I can't argue that, but it's never going to happen. Until it goes gold, the game is in a constant state of flux.

Not sure what you mean in saying "using what you know". You can't use older game's marketing as a precedent for how it'll happen (or should/might happen) for the new game, even more so when Crystal's hype for Underworld ended up having a detrimental effect to a degree.

I'm using the media flow from last year with this same game as a precedent.

I'm basing my assumption off of the fact that we were warned that we wouldn't be warned when coverage begins again.

If we aren't going to be warned when coverage starts again, it wouldn't start with E3 because they confirmed we'd see the game at E3.

You suggested that perhaps magazines would start covering the game after E3, which to me didn't make sense on a personal level but also conflicted with how it was done last year.

jhs270694 12-03-12 18:57

did we even know lara had a birthday before the date feb 14? or did they already announce that she had no B day before then?

Fair enough, I can see the logic you're working to there. I don't ascribe to that logic myself, if anything I don't apply any logic at all. We'll get what we get when we get it, that's why I've always said that we might get the next lot of mag coverage either before or after the E3.

larafan25 12-03-12 18:59

^Of course I think anything could happen. They might issue a statement saying the game has been scrapped. Anything could happen.

We were not told until the podcast in February which came around the 14th.

I had a dream about the new Tomb Raider. I've never had one until last night. It was terrifying! I remember just the last 5 minutes of it. I remember the scenery and environments were beautiful, but the situation wasn't. Like at all!

What's an e-cigarette? Sounds interesting. Your day was better than mine.

I went to school.

E-cigarette is electronic cigarette. There are no carcinogens like in normal cigarette. It cause no harm to me and others. It smells nice and you can choose from thousands of flavours (I'm vaping Coca-Cola and cinnamon). It feels like normal cigarette, but it doesn't. You can smoke it anywhere - at cinema, plane, train, store when waiting in a queue....and the smoke is not a smoke, but cold mist. The same that is being used in theatre or disco...


I have this one.

Smoking Coca-Cola? That sounds really fun actually :D lol.

It surely will! I can't stand the smoke coming out from normal cigarette now. It makes me vomit. My smell is better, I have no more headaches...it really is good thing! :tmb: And it's deffo a lot cheaper than normal cigarettes.
