[QUOTE=Richard_Croft;6477570][COLOR="DarkRed"]Ok, so where's her camera? She might not have a bottomless backpack, but have bottomless pockets :pi:[/COLOR][/QUOTE]

The game is in a pre-beta phase, I doubt they've actually finished the camera function :p !

It could easily be put on it's case attached to her belt or something.

[QUOTE=larafan25;6477571]CD could create a weight language using a reoccurring series of objects, some debris blocks, some fancy architecture pieces, and some symbolic relics and idols.

Then we can pick them up and learn the weight of each different object, and we will find these objects in most tombs, if they have physics puzzles. Because the game will probably be set in one location, that makes it easier to have a constant set of items that follow a similar visual theme. Then we can enter a tomb and find rubble and these items in corners, and if there is a weight mechanism we place them, on, and later in the same tomb we may need more weight in another puzzle, so we have to return, but be mindful of the things we've activated when removing the older weights, in case doors close or we're trapped, etc..

Speaking of that I want life or death situations, some fast, and some slow.

[B]For example a slow one would be a decision we have to make, and if make the wrong one we wait as the ceiling slowly lowers with spikes, and we die.

A fast one would be when the trap is sprung on us without our choosing, and we have to make a live or die decisions n the heat of that moment. [/B]

Plus we need a journal back and symbols/ riddles to solve, like hieroglyphs.[/QUOTE]

[COLOR="DarkRed"]I couldn't agree more! :tmb:

[B]For the bold part:[/B] Like Uncharted 2, when Nate's reaching the phurba's room, he falls into a little room with a ceiling full of spikes that is lowering slowly, and we have to shoot a cog to stop the mechanism! Something like that would be really AMAZING.

I want death-defying sequences like those![/COLOR]

I think it was used in TR3, but you just escape. lol

Lukass 12-10-12 18:57

I really want some classic puzzles like searching for keys, amulets, levers etc., but they said we shouldn't expect any ancient mechanics. All the "puzzles" in the game were created by the scavengers (the cage in the cave for example) to work for them and she will have to do something to make them work for her, if that makes sense.

That's really stupid D: !

But did they really say it? I mean they said there are noh masks and japanese idols all over the island, I expect at least one temple or tomb.

There will be tombs and temples, but no ancient puzzles and traps. They want the puzzles to be "believable".

Well that sounds weird, and why wouldn't ancient puzles be believable... :confused: ?

Ancients had all sorts of handy mechanisms that we now not know and think as "too much" but that doesn't mean they weren't real.

Anyway, their game, their rules, I just hope they might decide to add some in a later game :( !

just*raidin*tomb 12-10-12 19:16

I think there will still definitely be some classic-like puzzles. If you know what I mean.

I'm getting really excited for this game btw. Just here lately. I don't really know why.

larafan25 12-10-12 19:17

The excitement will die during the gap between now and Dec 18th. ._.

Sooo long.

Not as long as Summer 2009 - October 2012! :ton: At least, that's what I tell myself whenever I feel like it's gonna be a super long wait. :p

[QUOTE=Love2Raid;6477268]The game is less than 5 months away and it's still pre-beta?

I guess it's different for each developer/game, how that works. I remember that Uncharted 3 went beta like one year ahead of release or something, and I heard about a game that went beta only a few weeks (or even less) before. :o[/QUOTE]

They've been showing the same build at all the events though, so the demo is pre-beta, but the game that's being worked on in the studios could be further along than that. what comes after, beta and...? Or is that when the polishing finishes?

Extra T. 12-10-12 19:45

Cant they be like skyrims tombs


for ex:

you walk into the tomb and you can explore everything in that tomb. Walk into the next room its a hallway. and a door! open the door it leads to a dungeon. in the dungeon there artifacts and the specific one your looking for. When you grab the artifact Traps go off. I mean real traps not spears shooting across the room i mean real real real traps. Then you run out of the tomb. when you are out. mercanaries attack you. you win. and escape

Indeed. Must find new topic :p

So, for the scavengers. So far, we've seen only guys. Realistically, I don't think there could be that many without at least a few women on the island as well. I'm kinda hoping for some badass female scavenger, as unlikely as that is :p Children scavengers'd kinda take away the seriousness, I think...

And if there are women, why don't they qualify for whatever they're planning to do with Sam? :pi: There's so much we still don't know. Which is good, I guess :p

All the scavengers are sailors who were shipwrecked there and there aren't many female sailors, they sure exist but I doubt that they do on this island, too bad I'd love a badass bitch female scavenger too! She could have been the new Amanda :p !

Still, there seem to be quite a lot of them. I know they weren't there for that long, something like 30-40 years, but still, for that amount of people, we either need reproduction (ergo, women :p) or a lot of shipwreck survivors that got recruited. Which sort of begs the question; who is the leader? :pi:

I actually quite liked Amanda :p I really do hope there's some sort of chain of command with the scavengers.

It has a decent kind of logic, but more and more ships end up there so I'm guessing that they just keep coming and coming, all those people aren't from the same ship.

Amanda was my favourite, after Lara! And yes I hope that too!

New pre-order bonuses will be announced.

[QUOTE=just*raidin*tomb;6477714]What's so special about December 18th?[/QUOTE]

Or something like that :B I'm kinda assuming that's what it is. All we know is that it's an important date :p

just*raidin*tomb 12-10-12 20:07

How do we know this? And pre-order bonuses? Not much exciting about that though.

I really don't know though either... I guess that's why we just get redesigns.

Lol yeah. Cocktail dresses aren't really an option either :p I was thinking of a fluffier winter jacket, but that would probably be too similar to the 'Aviatrix' skin.

They don't wear anything special but... erm, well when we see someone we can tell if they're from the Endurance or Scavengers :p !

larafan25 12-10-12 21:54

We're getting new art for the cover I think.

Plus art was mentioned of Lara with her back to us, by a stream, with a compound bow in her hand and slashes across her back.

Zebra 12-10-12 21:57

I'm still kinda sad we won't get to play the ship sequence. I would've loved that as a short introduction. Just meet the characters, maybe complete a few tasks and then all hell breaks lose and you learn the controls while escaping the sinking ship.
