Damn imageshack. :(

But it does mention stone creatures, and in another bit it mentions Kofun tombs.

It says something about his weapon of choice.

A buzz saw on a stick, essentially.

Yes, it does mention the stone creatures! I remember reading clearly, but we just can't make out the scan, haha. >.<

Lukass 27-09-12 01:48

^^ Yep, I remember the saw weapon. It was a saw attached to a stick or something.

larafan25 27-09-12 01:49

^There was a picture of the weapon!? D:

edit: I'm clearly a fool for assuming you were talking about an image.

Samurais are 10x better than gun-toting fools.

larafan25 27-09-12 01:55

I'm imagining a boss battle in an arena, with a large Rasta guy, who is just a really big guy, and he swings around a giant stick with a buzz saw blade attached at the end, and if it hits you, it cuts through you all gory like in Resident Evil.

You have to jump and roll away from his giant stick, and then aim at his head.

Then there will be tons of arrows stuck in his head.

Lukass 27-09-12 01:58

How come, I can't find the article here?

It's still hard to read :(

larafan25 27-09-12 02:04

It's not going to change. :p

It was readable once, but image shack makes the images low quality for some reason. :/

Lukass 27-09-12 02:07

Ha!

No statues mentioned tho

larafan25 27-09-12 02:08

Okay, so the statues are mention in the bit about the Kofun tombs.

Lukass 27-09-12 02:09

Can't.

You can make out how it says warriors, guarding, and humans, part animals, etc...

edit: "clay figures called Haniwa"...

That could be the monsters from the early concept, that Karl denied to be in the game.

Stevo505 27-09-12 02:15

Samurai statues that come to life would be pretty freakin' sweet.

Haniwa are nothing like those early concepts though...

I bet they're in the game, but don't come to life.

"On the topic of concept art, we spied fairly final looking artist impressions of one of the islands psychotic inhabitants which are multicultural maniacs, not Japanese as you might imagine. Along with thick Rasta dreadlocks, this particular individual had cobbled together bits of clothing and hoarded items such as water bottles. At least we think they were filled with water: Another drawing had him spitting fire out of his mouth. If you think that's creepy, you should have seen his meele weapon of choice: an axe handle rigged up to a (freakin) buzzsaw blade. Clearly this is going to be a bad time to be a tourist."

EDIT: Ah, damn! I read so hard, too!

I see. I posted a pix of them a year back. Remember them.

larafan25 27-09-12 02:22

Seeing as Kofun tombs tend to take up a lot of space, and be grassy, I'd like a large feild surrounded by mountains, like the night hub but less rocky, and with rolling hills and kofun tombs.

But I'd also like them to be built into mountains on the coast of the island.

That's very true, and I feel it.

But then they say things which make me think they're just hiding more Uncharted, because they seem to like that. It scares me. D:

SeanCordernay 27-09-12 03:03

I have a confession...I've never played Uncharted D: The most I've ever seen of it is gameplay videos.

Also, you can see this genuine excitement in Karl's smile.

Uncharted is composed of essentially 2 things, well maybe three.

- Moments like Lara and Whitman walking up the mountain and talking.

- Action moments like the den escape sequence.

- Gunfights with lots of taking cover.

I'd like TR to be more about being alone, but not logically speaking, more like being alone from constant plot direction and hand holding.

Stevo505 27-09-12 03:08

Gah. Learning about Egypt right now in my art history class, and there are SO many possibilities for Lara. When they mentioned the temple of Karnak and Great Hypostyle Hall, I kinda geeked out. But there are so many more places Lara could visit that would be perfect for a TR game!

larafan25 27-09-12 03:10

Egypt is next.

EYE NO IT.

But it's so exciting to think that right now they are preping for the next game, like I'm sure they're in pre production or something.

We really need to go to Africa, and I ain't talking about Egypt.

I used to think Egypt and Africa were both countries, and two different ones.

You need a Geography class in yo life homie.

OMG Lara needs to go back in time and visit Pangea!!! How Epic would that be!

EDIT: I really think that the moment we see in the picture isn't gonna be in the final build

larafan25 27-09-12 03:17

^I think we run into the burning hut and untie some friends. Just a prediction, a feeling.

OPEN WURLD PANGEEYA!1

Yes.

Perfect.

Time travel is a must though.

MyRaider4Life 27-09-12 03:20

Has anybody noticed in the pictures above, those woods lead off into...grey. I hope they fix that because it looks like they've made the barrier of the area and just gotten lazy.

FIX IT CD...or at least make a better/darker horizon to match the woods.

Maybe after Lara get's that "look" in her eye that everyone was talking about though...which we didn't see in that demo (you know what look I'm talking about)

We need time travel and Pangea in TR!!! Lara could be like an Amazon lawl

I have noticed it, also when Lara is approaching the area with Sam and Mathias, the barriers don't feel enough to keep me in, you know? When it feels like a cheap barrier, and you can see all that space out there.

Though I think that might be a cliff, that drops off into the ocean, as they are still in the "Coastal Forest" part of the map and there is sand on the ground in one shot (if I remember correctly).

But I agree so much!

What "look"? :pi:

SeanCordernay 27-09-12 03:28

I thought they were cliffs too.

You know the look, where Lara brings the gun up to her waist and looks in the camera, but you can't really see her face, but then you can...:pi:

OMG, I forgot about that. I need to watch again to get it!

SeanCordernay 27-09-12 03:32

It was on that TV show where CD presented all the Broll footage after it leaked like a week or two earlier!!! You remember don't you. Clearly that's the scene that's going to be in the game. The scene in the screens you showed has to be a placeholder!
