I noticed that each game that passes,we have less and less renders! In Legend we had a bunch,I want more renders,not just concept art!

Lukass 12-10-12 21:58

[QUOTE=larafan25;6477881]We're getting new art for the cover I think.

Plus art was mentioned of Lara with her back to us, by a stream, with a compound bow in her hand and slashes across her back.[/QUOTE]

Wait. Who said a compound bow? Isn't the wooden bow the best she can get, then?

larafan25 12-10-12 21:58

^The magazine said compound bow and before E3 we had this huge discussions about bows and I even drew a picture and yall bitched about how you thought compound bows were ugly and you wanted Lara to be Zelda who isn't even the character's name.

[QUOTE=Zebra;6477888]I'm still kinda sad we won't get to play the ship sequence. I would've loved that as a short introduction. Just meet the characters, maybe complete a few tasks and then all hell breaks lose and you learn the controls while escaping the sinking ship.[/QUOTE]

I agree, that would have been good.

Though more comparisons to Uncharted, although TRU did it, so...yeah.

The only thing you would be able to do is run, jump, and roll. No fighting, no climbing, no eating deer testicles, just nothing that would help you once the game starts.

It would still have been a nice introduction in terms of story and atmosphere. You know, to see a small glimpse of Lara's world before it all went to hell. The way the game actually starts is pretty lame.

[COLOR="DarkRed"]Yeah, I'd love that :(
An introduction on the Endurance would be awesome![/COLOR]

Spong 12-10-12 22:18

I said decades ago that Crystal were missing out on an opportunity by not having a prologue level set on board the Endurance :ohn:

Maybe they will feature that as a flashback :). That could work better than having to experience a uninjured Lara from the get-go ;).

Evan C. 12-10-12 22:34

Nope, I have to say that what you are talking about it's a Pre-Order exclusive (I don't remember where tough) that introduces the reasons and the story of Lara before going to the Endurance. So, that's going to be part of the comic book that Rhianna have done exclusively for that.

[COLOR="DarkRed"]But it would be great to be in-game! [/COLOR]

Valentino 12-10-12 22:41

I love levels like that. That are completely unexpected and take you some where new. I always get nostalgia with games like that. Uncharted 3 for example (dont say "I stopped reading at 'uncharted'" please) when we play as young drake. The setting was amazing also.

Spong 12-10-12 22:46

As I pointed out a few months back, the game is supposed to be hinged around Lara's transformation into the top banana, gun-toting archaeologist that everyone who isn't me absolutely loves. With that in mind, it's pretty unarguable that the trip on the Endurance, especially the shipwreck itself, is the first part of that transformation. By the time we supposedly take control, Lara's already walking the path.

It would've made a brilliant precursor to the main game in every way. A tutorial section and a chance to meet the new faces, get some background story and set the scene.

It's still very possible that this could be featured in the game, perhaps as a flashback.

Would be cool to see.


I don't understand why they would cut off such important part of the trip.

True, but would it have the same impact?

Stevo505 13-10-12 00:16

[QUOTE=Spong;6478100]True, but would it have the same impact?[/QUOTE]

I don't see why not. Personally, the beginning of the game with the player - and Lara - not knowing where she is or what has happened seems like a great start to the story. It adds a whole lot of mystery IMO.

Depending on how well it's done, it may have more impact.

People go crazy for those whaattt le eff crazy flashback moments these days.

Lara goes ON A SHIP

For the first time on the sialnd.

You come out onto the beach of this beach hub area, the endurance is sitting in the water, you wade through GIANT crashing waves and enter.

as Lara gets to her room the scene of her falling out of bed plays and BAM you're playing through the flashback and nobody knows what is going on, then when you wake up you're lying in the water in the beach hub, like "WTF".

Richard_Croft 13-10-12 00:19

[QUOTE=Spong;6478100]True, but would it have the same impact?[/QUOTE]

[COLOR="DarkRed"]I guess not. The first "level" should be an introduction to what happened before she shipwrecked on the island![/COLOR]

You spelt "salad" wrong.

just*raidin*tomb 13-10-12 00:20

^Pretty much.

I love games make everything seem normal and then it becomes a crazy dreamlike scene or flashback, and you don't really know what happened until it's over.

larafan25 13-10-12 00:20

[QUOTE=Lukass;6478117]You spelt "salad" wrong.[/QUOTE]

You spelt "you spelt island wrong".

And apparently spelt isn't a word, IDK.

My spell check says it's not lol.

And ew, I HATE SALAD. Sorry salad for offending ur nasty green leafy guts.

._. I can't :vlol:
-------------------------------

I remember there's a cutscene of Lara recording some video on the ship, no?

just*raidin*tomb 13-10-12 00:23

I recall mention of a cutscene of Lara being dragged on a beach in first person view.

And salad amazing and delicious. You obvs haven't had a proper salad.

I FREAK OUT when you guys says stuff like "I remember blah blah" and then I know what you're talking about.

Yes, we've actually apparently seen some of the footage of Lara being hung up and dragged in first person, it's in one of my videos actually, I think. Maybe one I didn't finish, IDK.

Also, yes the beginning scene of the leaked script was Lara in her cabin of the ship doing a vlog.

Evan C. 13-10-12 00:26

Why can't you just put those text in white? suckers. I am pissed off, I don't want to find out all game plot on a forum. Thank you.

Ok I've been away for like a 1000 years, did i miss anything important?

Oh WAIT.

I just realized that scene from the leaked script must mean that [COLOR="White"]we see that scene in the game. We'll see her on the ship most likely. [/COLOR]

Uh! ♥ Lara looks like such a boss biotch on that! All like "I might be covered in mud but I'm badder than the girl you're with tbh".

During an episode of Grey's Anatomy:

Doctor: "Hey, intern. Get your ass off over and help me cut this guy's uterus."

Camilla: "I can't..." *looks dramatically into the camera* "BECAUSE IM PLAYING TOMB RAIDER." *holds up game box and smiles at camera*

Doctor: ...

Camilla: ...

Doctor: wtf is tom braider
