Amelia.

AMELIIAAA.

They even mentioned her at one point in the campaign, and she's 1930s or something, AND HER plane went missing somewhere!

AMURLYA. <3

Though I seem to remember Indie in a plane too.

Gosh.

She does look manly and while it's not a direct copy of Indiana Jones it's inpired from him.

It's not like there are many adventures running around in aviatrix clothes.

And she's not wearing a fedora for obvious reasons.

Whose Amilia?

I know she's that lady in that pic you posted but who is she supposed to be?

Well still, when I see that jacket I don't think of her, I think of Indy, and I know I'm not the only one!

tomekkobialka 13-10-12 21:23

@larafan25: I like the way you didn't bold the info about Howland Island...which is nowhere near Japan! :vlol:

But who knows, you might be onto something. .___.

I dragged over that bit and was like "yeah, no".

But still, the centre of the Pacific Ocean, HELLO the Dragon's Triangle.

It gets ships, then they get sucked to wherever.

Amelia Earhart? The first women to fly around the world [or anyone]? Something like that. And she was lost in the dragon's triangle or bermuda triangle. Can't remember which one.

And lol, no she doesn't look manly imo, but ok. I see boobs and feminine characteristics. Just like how some people saw the GI cover as manly, I will never understand why.

robm_2007 13-10-12 21:27

From where did Earhart depart when she was going to Howland Island? Maybe she was left near Japan, and then crashed on Lara's island. Probably not, though. I assume she flew from the US? Who knows.

Though, she'd be dead at least a hundred years. She'd be 176 in 2013.

In the case of the outfit the boobs and the face make all the difference.

As for the CGI render she does looks like a teen boy :p !

EVERY single person I showed it too thought she looked like a man! And they weren't TR fans!

just*raidin*tomb 13-10-12 21:28

Didn't she depart from somewhere in Florida?

*looks up*

She doesn't have to crash over the island though, or directly onto it.

Things get pulled towards the island as much as they may directly crash into it.

So she was close enough by going missing over the Pacific, I think.

just*raidin*tomb 13-10-12 21:30

She left from Miami, Florida. She had someone with her though I think.

robm_2007 13-10-12 21:31

She's a fool to depart from Florida, if that's the case. It's over 3 thousand miles away from the Pacific Ocean. Would have made more sense to depart from the west coast of the US.

larafan25 13-10-12 21:32

It said it was a circumblalbAH flight, so mayb that has to do with her course.

Her goal to was to circumnavigate the globe, aka fly across the world, so I don't think it would matter.

Edit: Looking at this map, this final segment looks a bit insensible.
After Calcutta she could've flown to Hong-kong, Seul/Tokyo, Kamchatka, Alaska and then back to Oakland.

larafan25 13-10-12 23:18

Just know this, Cee Dee...


just*raidin*tomb 13-10-12 23:50

Oh sweet Jesus. Resi Evil 6 looks dreadful like 99 percent of the time.

princebenidere 13-10-12 23:54

But i couldn't find hammer the button and wiggle the stick in TR, lol

the QTE section in tr is much less and pops out quick and it is small( looks oraginic not flashy, bright ) compare to RE6,

and its not annoyingly repetitive it only varies in some situations ,

thats why i dont need to worry

just*raidin*tomb 14-10-12 00:00

I get this impression as well, but I'm still weary and think they're unnecessary aside from the the "in-game" ones where you have to quickly press a button so that you don't fall. Those kinds of QTEs are fine becaue they're part of the gameplay. You're still in control, but the Interactive Cutscenes are so blehh. But they really aren't too bad in tomb raider. The icons do look pretty at least. :p

I also noticed that some of them only appear if you're having issues, like reaching for the bow. There was no icon, but one finally appeared and told someone what to do when they couldn't seem to figure it out.

i completely agree, some of it are not necessary but its still ok in some part.
and i hope Karl was saying the truth that those many QTE are only in the beginning of the game.

BTW off topic
the QTE in RE6 really made the game funny and not scary( specially how those QTE sound like it was a finalfantasy 13-2 paradigm shift sound, flashy and bright ) , for an M rated game i think they fail to deliver the Title Resident Evil

just*raidin*tomb 14-10-12 00:07

Yeah, I was watching a walkthrough, and I played the demo. RE6 isn't scary at all to me. And that's probably really sucky for some fans, because isn't it kind of supposed to be?

Oh Capcom, you fail.

SeanCordernay 14-10-12 00:16

I sense the death of QTEs coming soon...

I don't even follow the series or play the game and even I thinks it look meh (if that makes any sense)

SeanCordernay 14-10-12 00:29

I think I want to get a TR tattoo...

Possibly the only amazing thing to come out of RE6's existence.

Other developers will hopefully take note and start thinking what they should've a long time ago. NO ONE loves QTEs.

The1andOnlyTR 14-10-12 00:34

My NYCC write up is in the archery thread, if anyone is interested. :)

larafan25 14-10-12 03:42

We need TR HALLOWEEN avatars.

But mine is so low quality I can't even.

just*raidin*tomb 14-10-12 03:45

Omg I'm so gonna make one. I already have one prepared for Christmas. I'm gonna use the same one I did last year.
http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/a...omb/trxmas.jpg


But I need a halloween one. Yess.

SeanCordernay 14-10-12 03:48

Why isn't Sam dressed as an orange

larafan25 14-10-12 03:49

^OH RIGHT.

I am supposed to have Sam as an orange and Lara as Debra or a crab! :eek:

Yeah I have christmas ones from last year, that one is genius tho! :vlol:

She's checking her naughty list.

Obviously Legend Lara's naughty list is not that long.
