I agree with you about screenshots. I'm really excited to see more videos of the gameplay, but I feel like I've already seen so much, and I want it to be a surprise. I'm considering not watching anymore videos when they are released, but it's gonna be so hard. ;__;

Crystal is thinking in periods. They choose some content and then keep using again anf again for a long time. I'm not even sure what to expect. A new trailer and new gameplay videos I guess. You're right, they definitely don't give a toss about screenshots. They're neither new nor great quality. (The last batch of screens were ridiculous.) I wished they focused more on screenshots too.

I also happen to fully agree with you. :p
Yeah, I find written info (articles) and screenshots way more exciting, for the same reasons...
But then again, they have been promoting this game like a movie since day one, lol.

Are these guys playing the Den demo? :confused: Note that she has no bow, so it can't be the deer one.

Their positions in the chairs do suggest that, yeah. The guy on the left looks like he's only playing just to fill some time :vlol:

Mikky 29-11-12 20:16

A little question about these pre-order "Stage Announcements". (Click)

What are these announcements about exactly? More information about the DLC that comes with the pre-ordered editions or more info on the special editions or what? Anyone know?

just*raidin*tomb 29-11-12 20:17

I think has to do with other locations. So far we only have North America and Europe.

Mikky 29-11-12 20:20

Didn't Karl already explain in the podcast that everywhere else apart from North and South America would have the European editions? Not to mention that that would be such a lame announcement. D:

just*raidin*tomb 29-11-12 20:21

But nothing has been released officially. And there are probably more pre-order incentives in other territories to announce.

LNSNHGTDS 29-11-12 20:21

What's with the Europe/America difersifications?

They're pointless and unescessary!

just*raidin*tomb 29-11-12 20:25

Because different territories have tendency to like different things. Basically CD getting as much money as they can by taking advantage of that information. (not a bad thing from a business perspective)

I still don't see the point, I mean like what, are they gonna dress Lara in a US and a EU flag for the American and European version respectively :rolleyes: ...?

Duh

That's just the way businesses work, they like to split territories.

So what exactly is each of the two continents getting?

I don't know the contents, it doesn't interest me. As I understand it though, the EU has two special editions (Collector's and Survival) while the US only has one (Collector's). Which doesn't seem right to me, so I'm probably wrong :p

^That thread has the different editions and their contents.

I'll believe it when I see it. :p

Geoff Keighley's latest tweet has me suspicious.
Quote:

Geoff Keighley ‏@geoffkeighley Working on top secret but amazing VGA moment today.

pic.twitter.com/hikI8V8x
Maybe the new Final Hours will be at the VGA's. Not sure if what Karl was doing today actually involved Geoff or not. It may have been just Zach Levi.

Just a suspicion.

just*raidin*tomb 29-11-12 22:58

I highly doubt Final Hours will be shown at the VGAs. That just doesn't fit at all. He's the producer of the VGAs anyway. :p

I'm confused. What does that pic have to do with Karl?

It doesn't, I just figured that it may have something to do with this:
Quote:

Karl Stewart ‏@CrystalDKarl On a redeye flight to shoot the next episode of @geoffkeighley's The Final Hours of @tombraider with @ZacharyLevi #supersecret
Which it probably doesn't, but it doesn't hurt to speculate. :p

Weemanply109 29-11-12 23:03

BTW: the "surprise" that you'll be getting tomorrow is much better than the "Final Hours" trash. :cool: Trust me.

just*raidin*tomb 29-11-12 23:04

Oh I see.

Underhoe 29-11-12 23:04

I wonder how you know all this. :mad:

From Eidos Forums. Driber made a thread there saying 'Something cool is coming'. Weemanply doesn't know more than us. :whi: Probably :pi:

There's always PM'ing....

Driber's post, which is vague at best.

I give up, I've got something to do in the meantime. Apparently it's happening at 6 AM my time, an hour where practically no one is alive. :vlol:

Rai 29-11-12 23:26

^so what then...why would you...a wee man (:p) get told something before anybody else...I feel like this is the 'friend of a friend' thing all over again :vlol:

just*raidin*tomb 29-11-12 23:27

Same.

Whatever it is its probably nothing.

According to Weemanply, we will - and Driber on the Eidos board.
