It's a spoof website. Look at its front page, there's a story about Geoff Keighley dying after going on a Mountain Dew and Doritos binge (maybe someone should tell him), and a story about Capcom admitting they can't patch RE6 to make it good.[/QUOTE]

Oh, thank the lord for that. [COLOR="White"]Why do I keep falling for stuff like that?[/COLOR]

Guess who is [URL="http://www.gamesradar.com/top-100-video-game-heroes/"]#9[/URL] on GamesRader's list of 100 heroes in video games. :cool:

I may be late with this, so, sorry if so.

[SIZE=1]In case you didn't guess or figure it out, #9 is Lara.

[SIZE=2]Edit: Is Tombraider.com down for other people too? Oh wait...it's working now. [/SIZE]

I have no problems with Link, he's memorable, amazing, long lasting.
But... Nathan Drake...? 3rd Place?
Oksrsly? Memorable? Last time I remembered him was when I finished UC3.
There has to be a mistake.
9. Nathan Drake
3. Lara Croft

kbye.

This list is biased, let's burn the creator and make our own biased list :pi: !

[QUOTE][U]Forget raiding tombs[/U] – we’d rather leap from rooftop to rooftop with the sensibly realized Faith, who manages to be athletic, stealthy and attractive without relying on suggestive camera angles or physically impossible cleavage. She’s also dressed for success, wearing clothes runners actually don while hopping through parking garages. [U]Time to buy actual pants, Lara[/U].[/QUOTE]

:vlol: Bitches tryin' to get the queen down but it's not happening!

She can put her "normal pants" and non-cheap camera angles (I'm not sure if they were even serious, because they obviouslt exist in Mirrro's Edge :vlol: ) as deeper as she can in her ass as Lara has some normal ones too ;) .

And shorts are pants too so the point they tried to make is obviously invalid.

Not to mention that people worshipping the flawless queen are far more than those worshipping the cheap hoe.

Gotta go hate on the article, see you all in a minute :) !

Oh, I didn't know that list existed :p !

That's like my default reaction every time they are mentioned in the same phrase :p !

brand.seph 03-11-12 09:39

Are the Q&A's still open? I wanted to know wether we can get the 7 min(?) CGI Turning Point trailer of the game in any way, maybe as a downloadable or included in the game, maybe in the Collectors Edition?

BlueJ97 03-11-12 09:53

Why is drake on that list ? :rolleyes: Glad to see samus, lara and link make it to the top 10 though :P

the 7 minutes were just an idea from Karl, but it never saw the light of day, so I am afraid I have to say that it doesn't exist.

I played UC2 for the first time today and I just finished it in 3 hours! Was it really that short or just extremely easy?

It was... BOTH. :p

UC2 feels to me like a déja vu of TR2/TR4 in HD.

...How does it?

pipermaru 03-11-12 22:07

[QUOTE=Linoshi Croft;6510463]...How does it?[/QUOTE]

The train part in UC2 = Desert Railroad/TR4
The main artifact is a dagger = Dagger of Xian/TR2
The brown coat used by Drake = the brown coat used by Lara/TR2
The big red monastery in the mountains = Barkhamg Monastery/TR2
The whole Tibet/snowy mountains stuff = Tibetan Foothills/TR2

Did you play it on easy? Try it on crushing and it will take you much longer.

Although I don't believe that it really took you 3 hours especially on your first playthrough unless you skipped all the cutscenes which would be pretty dumb..

OMG.
THIS IS SO TRUE.

While I was playing the game, I was like... this is too familiar, I've seen it somewhere.
Oh by the way, Nathan feels like a copy of Comic Book Lara. :p

Yes hahaha. And when I first played UC3 and got to the desert, there is a chapter where Drake is running after the bad guys in the desert. Made me remind SO MUCH of the Valley of the Kings/KV-5 in TR4.

It was actually 3 hours and 48 minutes. So let's just say 4 hours. I didn't skip any cutscenes...

Umm..riiiight, well cutscene together are almost 2 hours long if I can remember or even longer! Soooo, yeah. And this was your first playthrough was it??

Yup. But! I've already played the first 4 chapters. Is there any way to see how much time it took you to finish the game?
Because I've rent it and I gotta take it back to store :p

Edit: I searched and all the cutscenes togother are less than 1 and half hours. I skipped those that I've already seen.

The subtitles better look good in this game. In the trilogy they were displayed weirdly where you should only look at the bottom line, and too many games nowadays have subtitles in [SIZE="1"]tiny minute[/SIZE] text, with a barely visible shadow which makes it hard to differentiate between a light background with details, and the shadow of the white text. Seriously.

I have to agree and those black bars were kinda pointless IMO.

I want black bars if they [I]actually[/I] allow the text to be readable against any background, like this:

I don't know why but I don't like those. It would be better to add shadows under the words..

All the subtitles from the LAU trilogy were like that...

Tear 04-11-12 16:05

Oh. I only remember Legend's subtitles.:p

I didn't care as much to turn them on for Anni and Underworld.

As I say, with shadows if there's a bright background with other details, it can be very difficult to differentiate the details from the shadows.

tomekkobialka 04-11-12 19:46

^ They should have that as an option, along with black bars behind the text and nothing behind the text.
