^Yep, it's on Steam :)

@Jami393: Not at the moment. They said they were focusing on the multiplayer DLCs.

Is that one for the PC?

Yeah it it, but I got it with my pre-order of TReboot on the 360.

Why are Crystal mainly focusing on multiplayer?

^Exactly, but I wouldn't mind if they'd release a couple of tombs :o

I wonder then how many people are actually playing TReboot's multiplayer mode. Also that's what I wouldn't mind at least is a couple more tombs for the island.

on ps3 there is a lot of people playing you can find a casual team deathmatch game really fast

I think it'd be kinda cool if they made a DLC piece, or even a completely separate smaller title released digitally only that focuses on Amelia and her time on the island after her crash. I think it could be a very good experience. Doesn't necessarily have to be officially linked to TR other than it were set in the same place but the different time and character could afford for a completely different play style to Lara.

This is actually a really awesome idea. It kinda reminds me of what they did with Enslaved and Pigsy's Perfect 10 where they took another character placed within the same game but with a completely unique play style making for a piece of DLC that was actually much more interesting to play than just adding more for the main playable character.

Thank you :D Tbh, I really love the island setting and the whole Himiko storyline as un-fleshed out as it was. They could make mini-campaigns as DLC for different key characters expanding the story of the island and characters on it more. Plus playing characters from different time periods would let us see the island in varying statuses of decay and structure depending on how, or if, well established the Solari are etc. Plus each character, like I said, could have a different play style. Like Amelia could be more puzzle and exploration based, they could have a soldier character who could be very combat orientated. There's actually so many places they could go with the setting and story, they don't have to be exclusive to Lara.

The centaurs in Anniversary make me so mad to this day. :hea:

I was just thinking about them, as Winamp skipped to their theme. What was wrong with them?

That's actually a brilliant idea. I would love that. Shame it's probably never gonna happen, though. :/

They give me trouble everytime. I play Anniversary on Wii, though. Maybe they're easier on the other platforms...?

The will be easier on another console, seeing that you don't have to swing the nunchuck to use the grapple. Tbh I found them more fun on Wii.

I've played the Wii version and they didn't seem any harder than any other version. I mean, you shoot, adrenaline dodge, throw grapple, use shield to reflect, shoot like crazy (preferably the shotgun if you're close enough or the Magnums if not) and then repeat process. Just make sure you're not aiming at them when they use the laser thingy and run around and you'll easily dodge it. It's reeeeally easy once you get the pattern down and you know what to do. Then again, I have finished Anniversary over 300 times, so maybe I'm more used to it than most. :p

300 times!? :cen:

I don't blame ya, though. The game is awesome. I can replay it over and over - unlike the latest installment. ;)

They're probably the funnest bosses ever, but they still make me so mad haha.

I was actually shocked how much I liked diary characters waaay more than Lara's useless friends. Actually NONE of the side characters looked a bit interesting.

However, I was very intrigued by Hoshi, she had more bravery and more use than any of Lara's friends in the entire game. I loved the Ambassador too. The Japanese military were pretty good too. Mathias is another one who had fantastic diary entries, along with his various Sollarii fighters.

I would love to see Himiko in her prime to show her colours and her powers, she should have been the boss. TR ending was very underwhelming in that area. Mathias and Himiko should have been bosses too. Oh well...

I think it's from the cave escape, although I don't remember seeing that exact image.

Random News of the Day:

Our beloved Karl S. is now the Vice-President of the Occidental division at Square Enix! :eek:, as you can see at him Twitter Account: Vice President, Strategic Marketing, Square Enix, North America/Europe. BAFTA Member. All tweets belong to those who follow!

And he Twetted:

"Thank you all for the tweets of congrats on the new position today. Much appreciated. See most of you at E3 soon. Raise a glass."

Congrats Karl!! :jmp:

Cristina 07-05-13 21:08

Omg :jmp::jmp:

"see most of you at E3 soon" LC Reflections or new IP maybe, OR BOTH:cln:

Spong 07-05-13 21:10

Does that mean he's gone from Crystal and we never have to hear him drone on about Batman or James Bond ever again? Someone please say yes.

*crosses fingers*

Mikky 07-05-13 21:10

They must have been really impressed with how he lied about that hub that's "bigger than TRU" and all that rubbish he kept sprouting out about Batman and 007! It's only, like, the best skill EVAH!

Nah, but seriously, congrats to the guy. I'm sure he earned it. :D

_Ninja_ 07-05-13 21:17

And the usual suspects with something negative... ;)

Maybe this bodes well for Tomb Raider. SE wouldn't promote someone out of a failed project.

LOL, not really :p
I can't be held to blame for the amount of hours Karl waffled on about things that had nothing to do with anything.

If you listen to SquEnix going on about the sales expectations, TR9 did apparently fail. SquEnix is obviously a bit crap at counting, let's hope that lack of skill hasn't spilled over into their HR :p

Stevo505 07-05-13 21:22

Congrats Karl! A well deserved promotion.

Spong 07-05-13 21:24

Seriously, does this mean he's no longer Creative Whatever It Is at Crystal? If he has gone, who's gonna replace him? :eek::pi:

Oh come on.

Now I bet every hipster "Gamer Girl" will buy that and flaunt it around. Next thing you know when someone asks her about Lara Croft, she'll be damn clueless. :vlol:

motoleo 08-05-13 00:16

Was it stated that Lara was an only child in the new continually? Because Der could be a possibility that she has a sister. Hey, that could've been cool the child was in that Apocalypse TR game.

I also preordered, for PC, and got the outfits included and the Hitman weapons which, as turned out are only for multiplayer? (I don't do multiplayer...)
Didn't get this tomb. :(

I'll have to check and see how the paying system works then... never done that before. :D

The Tomb was really amazing, makes you wish there was more like it in the game itself. ;-;
Stupid CD has no plans for more SP DLC. :mad:
I really hope they change their minds soon. :(
