[QUOTE=Spong;5950380]You're seeing it from a different angle to me. When Karl mentioned unlockables in relation to exploration, I interpreted it as meaning unlockables that would open up [I]more[/I] exploration, not unlockables [I]because[/I] of exploration as you put it.

God knows I'd be furious if I took time out to uncover some kind of secret, only to be rewarded with a bloody costume :mad::hea::mad:[/QUOTE]

I don't know what you mean.

The game is going to have gear gating, and obviously we'll need to explore to find items in the game in order to progress and maybe even unlock extra spaces.

But of course extra exploration, rewarded by unlockables would be things like....**** you give as unlockables.

I doubt well just get unlockable outfits.

[QUOTE=larafan25;5950373]Unlockables have everything to do with exploration when you need to explore to find them, so having unlockables pushes the player to explore, if those unlockables seem valuable to them.

edit: BTW I think they spoke about unlockables elsewhere too.[/QUOTE]

That makes sense. They said there is going to be a lot of things to explore, discover and reveal. I wouldn't mind unclockable outfits as a reward for exploring. I just would like the outfits to fit in the game. I don't want some crazy candy pink outfits.

^ I like that idea, Lukass, with regards to the winter clothing. Once again, I was typing too much and was too slow.

I like the idea of a few (note: a [B]few[/B]) unlockable outfits. Nothing wrong with them, imo. They're just a bit of extra fun. As long as the outfits are appropriate for the situation/environment/weather etc and, for the reboot, they should be [B]new[/B] outfits we've not seen before, but, like the current main outfit, maybe there can be a nod to the old ones (like an orange winter jacket coupled with trousers). Giving homage to the old ones is enough, it's not necessary to have the exact outfit, as, it does kinda poo poo over the whole reboot idea.

@Larafan, sure your sister may like short shorts and I guess they're currently in fashion. Maybe Lara has a pair in her wardrobe at home and they're fine in the everyday world of parks and sunshine and back gardens with mud slinging, I just don't see the need for the classic shorts when the current outfit is, 1, more than enough of a homage in itself and 2, more appropriate for the situation Lara was on the Endurance for in the first place and especially for the situation she finds herself in. Oh and 3, It's too soon in the reboot, imo to add the classic outfit. Let's get used to the idea of the reboot first. If there are shorts in the next game, it could be fun to add the classic shorts (just not [I]that[/I] short).

On an off topic note: Why the hell is shorts and tights so fashionable these days, it's such an odd combo :confused:. :p

I think Core Design decided to give her the shorts because she was meant to be sex symbol. They wanted her to be one. Since she's an average girl now and not sex symbol anymore I don't think she'll wear shorts in this game just for the sake of it or just to show she has nice and long legs. I wouldn't mind the shorts if it will be appropriate for the situation/environment and weather as @Rai said though.

skinny jeans would be a good replacement for short shorts for me :D

Ewww, no. This is Tomb Raider, not walking down the street raider :p.

^Crystal apparently said some time ago that Lara doesn't wear jeans anyways, (lol AOD). :pi:

I too think the new outfit is a great homage (even thought they seem to say it's unintentional) to the classic outfit, but others will still want that specific look, regardless of where the straps are placed or how short the shorts are (but some can be further picky).

I think as an unlockable it doesn't need to stick as close to the rules of the story mode, as long as it doesn't stretch the limit. Maybe there is a warm jungle on the island where it's hot and sticky? Or maybe we get some warm DLC hub space to explore and Lara wears shorts? IDK.

I think the press may pick it up as too soon to see Lara's legs again.

I think they gave her shorts because shorts are awesome and fun, plus they scream adventure (to me at least). All I wanted to do as a kid was run around the backyard in shorts, and the knees had to be out or else it just wasn't the same.

Fixed and agreed.

you dont want shorts you dont want jeans, would a skirt do it for you :o

Rai 02-02-12 01:43

@Lukass ^:vlol: I was thinking of that at the time ;)

Would a skirt be approriate for the weather/environment/situation? Doubt it. So no.
