I agree with him, I really don't like that line. What's the point?

Hate hero duty? Don't be a superhero.

Hate cockroach? Don't be bug exterminator. Be a maid or something.

Hate tombs? Why the **** would you be a tomb raider?

Doesn't make any sense. :confused: Why would they put that line?

tomekkobialka 29-03-13 11:38

She was being semi-sarcastic, apparently, and I guess it was a sort of joke that the developers put in there. Though personally, I think if she had a [I]real[/I] passion for tombs, she wouldn't say "I hate tombs" in such a bitchy way, she would probably just say "I hate this place" or blame herself for underestimating how stressful tombs can be. ;)

hayden 29-03-13 11:39

"I hate tombs."

NEK MINNIT facial expression expressing her interest and fascination in the tomb.

tomekkobialka 29-03-13 11:42

^ :vlol:There's a clear disconnect there. :p

Also, I think she's overgeneralizing. Suddenly she hates [I]all[/I] tombs? Gurl, if you came on TRF Debate & Political Discussion with that attitude, you wouldn't last one minute. :ohn: :p

tomee 29-03-13 11:44

Didn't she say that because there were bugs all over the place?
I mean she's a historian/archeologist of some sort, surely she doesn't hate tombs.

I have no idea why everybody is so serious and pissed about this line. I found it cute, and fitting.

Shark_Blade 29-03-13 11:48

They need better jokes tbh. Or more human common sense, cause that one is plain senseless.

trfanX34 29-03-13 11:49

I don't like that line, but I don't care too much for it.
What I do hate though, and a LOT, are Jonah and Alex's cheesy as **** lines. I cringe at everything they say.

Shark_Blade 29-03-13 11:51

Example? Do tell.

I think Jonah's are okay.

trfanX34 29-03-13 11:55

"The only thing I know is that logic is useless to understand this place."
"You think that your instincts are a weakness, but they're a strength. Trust them!"

These two are passable, but then there is...

"When the storm hit the Endurance I felt it - something dark; something alive..."

And I could go on forever :rolleyes:

Let's not even mention the "little bird"...

hayden 29-03-13 11:58

I love Jonah and everything he says, but Alex's are way too cheesy.

Example, "You have to leave without me" or something like that. Basically telling her to save herself.

JackMarco 29-03-13 11:59

I thought it was funny, when Alex was drooling over Reyes´s 14 year old daughter XD

Shark_Blade 29-03-13 11:59

I cringe everytime I play as Jonah in multiplayer (though he is my fave character). There's that one line that he says at beginning of any level:

"Protect yourself! It's the only way!!"


Seriously Jonah? Protect myself? But I don't bring a condom. :vlol:

hayden 29-03-13 12:02

The males in MP are too slow for my liking.

"I hate Tombs". Did anyone actually note where Lara had just been before saying that line? Up until the point when she realises she's in Himoko's Tomb, she hadn't had much fun in anything that had resembled a tomb. Yes, she is a newly graduated archaeological student who'd been on digs with her parents, but that doesn't mean she has much experience in the field or even in actual tombs. I'd imagine her parents wouldn't have let her anywhere that was potentially dangerous, but just to be around their digs where they could keep an eye on her. Her reaction is primarily a direct response to where she'd just had to walk through and having just wiped cobwebs off her. A soon as she enters the tomb, proper, complete with historical significance, which is what she's interested in, her eyes light up and she is intrigued and in awe. Plus I think it was a sort of 'in' joke to be ironic considering Lara will become the Tomb Raider soon.

I think it's a fun line, and not supposed to be taken too seriously, despite my ranty explanation above :p

Mermaidman 29-03-13 15:47

Jonah and Roth were the most interesting characters from the supporting cast.

Jonah especially was very likable.

loved the "Northern Bastard" line :D

Shark_Blade 29-03-13 15:57

Nvm.

just_love_her 29-03-13 20:11

Today I bought new graphic card (AMD HD 7770 Powercolor) and I'm finally able to play game at the ultimate settings with tressfx and all those effects at 22 fps according to benchmark. I must say, the game is heaven for eyes. I played on normal settings at 1680x1050 and the game also looked good but now with 1920x1080 resolution and ultimate settings it's like I washed my eyes! I'll have second playthrough tomorrow to admire the places and Lara's flawless hair. :D

ItIsOkBro 29-03-13 20:13

The worst Jonah line was, I just saved his ass from falling into a fiery pit and he's like "thanks". :mad:

I just played the most frustrating MP matches of my life. UGH. It was frustration after frustration. I want to punch someone now. Any volunteers?

You can punch my dad's 'widow' partner if you like. Or you can borrow a cushion I use for such occasions :p

I haven't even touched MP. Have zero desire to.

Just escaped the Chasm Monastery :p .

I experienced a glitch today, at Mountain Village none of the secret documents, GPS caches or relics would appear, I fast travelled back to the area after reaching the Mountain Base though and everything was fine after that.

Turns out that multiplayer is actually really good :eek: ! I SUCK, but still, it's really nice :p !

Carbonek_0051 30-03-13 17:50

Some of the GPS caches in the Mountain Village only show up during the day.

[QUOTE=Spong;6730841]Seriously? Can't say I ever noticed.[/QUOTE]
Yeah, there was one I thought was bugged but I read the strategy guide and some of them appear only at day.

[B]EDIT:[/B] Just checked again and some documents do it too.

Sneaky Crystal :pi:
Is it physically not there at night, or just not visible because it doesn't have that little blinking light or something?

[QUOTE=Carbonek_0051;6730844][B]EDIT:[/B] Just checked again and some documents do it too.[/QUOTE]

LOL, no way? I never noticed that either.

Carbonek_0051 30-03-13 18:06

It physically wasn't there but showed up on the map in the location.

I thought it was really dodgy and crappy until that's all I was playing today xD

I've actually started to get the hang of it, but I'm getting sick and tired of the bugs regarding connection and loading. Sometimes between two match the screen just turns black, or the loading screen won't go away, while the others are already playing. Ugh...

I responded with the same half-assed "thanks" when he gives Lara the Compound...

By the way, anyone noticed how many games have gone monkey crap over bows lately? It's insane...:D

My parents forced me to do archery as a kid and I sucked! :D

hayden 30-03-13 18:23

^ Archery > life.
Archery is just.. asdfghjkl; amazing. Words cannot describe :jmp:
