This is how games are nowadays, they last ten minutes and that's it. TR9 was good in its own right, but God it's short-lived and there's absolutely nothing making me want to to go back to it. And no, the idiotic multiplayer doesn't count.

So, come on Crystal, TR9 is over and done with, it's had its moment. Announce TR10, I'm curious to see you give us a proper Tomb Raider using your new formula.

Huh? Can't wait for 5 more years? :p They will take some time to put the current-gen engine to rest and develop a next-gen engine. :o

I'd rather they didn't announce the game so early this time though. The wait was unbearable. I feel like there should be a year max. between the announcement and the release.

hayden 07-04-13 06:23

I can't play the game on my laptop :(
I bought if off Steam yesterday and it crashes for a couple of seconds and then plays and then crashes again, and so on.

Can somebody please help me? I have everything on the lowest settings and I don't really have the money to get a new laptop just yet :mad:

These are my specs:

So. I bought the outfit pack, and I went to the base camp, went to Gear, and the outfit selection icon isn't there. I've correctly installed the pack, and I tried from 2 different saves. One where I've completed the game, and another where I'm up to the Shanty Town. How can I get these outfits?

I think he did a wonderful job with Underworld's cinematics :).

Or maybe they're humouring him.

Funny comparison :vlol::tmb:. He is great, tbh I think this was his vision for Lara before Legend, but they decided not to change the character too much :). I don't get why some people blame him for everything that "went wrong" with the previous trilogy. It is not fair for him to take the blame. Not that there is actually anyone to blame since the games were solid, but the story was kinda weak.

So Tomb of the Lost Adventurer still not out huh..?

:rolleyes:

Just completed the game, so thought I would post my opinions on the game here. And what I would like for the next game.

My main gripes, although not all major, were the combat, characters and story.

I found there was far too much combat and I found the combat itself at times quite frustrating. I think I would have enjoyed it more if there was a bit more puzzling in between. It felt like the balance was 80% combat 20% platforming.

I found this an odd decision as I remember reading an Underworld review which praised the game for not including too much combat and obviously now it will lead to Uncharted comparisons, which leads me to my next issue...

Characters! I should probably first say I have loved Tomb Raider ever since I first watched my step dad play it in 1996. When I bought a PS3, I was just waiting for MGS4 really, so when I heard about Uncharted, I thought it sounded quite interesting as it sounded quite Tomb Raider-y. Wasn't entirely sure what to expect but I was sucked in immediately by Drake and Sully.

So as the combat for me feels quite Uncharted, I can't help but think about how the characters in TR are nowhere near as good as Uncharted's. And I'm not interested in seeing any of these characters pop up again tbh.

The last TR game I was really excited for was AOD and that was a game which I though had a great storyline and where I liked the characters. I thought Eckhardt and Karel were good villains and I even liked Kurtis. So the storyline here wasn't as good for me, but as it's only the first game of the rebooted series, that can change. The story did the job OK but could be improved on. (After reading that Rihanna Pratchett was the writer, I was reminded of the Mirror's Edge story, in that I thought it was going to be a great story with a few twists and turns but is actually quite basic).

Also, can we drop the Lara's parents storyline now? I really liked the original version where they disown her.

I enjoyed the platforming and really wanted more of this. I found that with a lot of these sections, I didn't always enjoy as much as I could as I was quite wary of being attacked. The level of combat in TR and Uncharted may well be the same, but I felt there was a lot more in TR and I found this quite frustrating at times.

I did enjoy the part at the end where Lara got her dual pistols. (Another part I quite enjoyed is the final "tomb" at the end. I was thinking "wow, now THIS is a tomb", only to simply trigger a cutscene, get into another battle and have to leave, though I can forgive this as it is the first game, I'm sure we will have more puzzles and tombs in the next game). I also didn't mind any of the gore.

After my ramble, things I want for the next game:
  • Lara to be come more Lara-y. More sarcastic and baddass! (I am so nostalgic for old Lara - I miss her)
  • More tombs!
  • No Sam, Reyes or the other guy (unless we're going to for a Lara/Amanda storyline with Sam. I didn't like the Lara/Amanda storyline at all, but feel this could work better with Sam as we know her better)
  • Better balance of puzzles and combat
  • Not a major thing, but I would love it if the old TR theme was incorporated into the new one.
  • Big epic puzzles with a feeling of isolation like the old games. I'm certainly not against having some new characters (there was a point in the Core games where I though Lara could do with some companions)
    No parents!

I'm not particularly expecting Crystal to do any of the above though - I expect TR2Reboot will be more of the same.

The reboot is a good game - just one I would enjoy far more without the TR tag.

Has it already been revealed what Lara Croft: Reflections is?

Yeah. Turns out out it's just a DLC dance-rhythm game featuring characters from both the Uncharted and Tomb raider franchise. One team is a TR character while another is a UC character, and you both do a dance-off. The "reflections" part of the title emphasises the fact that the character you choose just copies all your moves via the Kinect thingy or the Move controller, like, every dance game, I guess. It sounds pretty stupid and just an excuse to make money out of popular franchises, but oh well.

Here's the wikipedia page about it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lara_Croft_Reflections

As stupid as some might think it is, I'm still very hyped for Reflections. It's a truly interesting idea and I can't wait to see how it will turn out.
Omg that was hilarious! *Imagine a vlol emoticon here so it doesn't break the white text effect*

This one:

It's one of my favourite entries. I don't really like the 2nd and 3rd winners, though.

http://ayame-kenoshi.deviantart.com/...ners-362085367

edit: Btw, gotta love how they completely ignored the theme of the contest. It was supposedly about "portraying Lara's growth as a character" and they just went for the most actiony drawings.

Ahhh Hamsterfly. I recognized it was his work once I saw it. Really impressive painting skills, I admire people with that sort of patience and skill with colour and such. :) I find myself wishing I'd entered into the contest myself, now. I just figured my more western/asian mix artstyle wouldn't really fit the realism style that TR2013 has. Was nice to look through the entries that won (and those that didn't) and see a bit of variety in styles. I like the 2nd runner up entry even if it is more anime-like. The third one is pretty good too. :)

It was so nice to look through so many artworks portraying Lara by so many talented artists.

Mikky 07-04-13 23:27

I like the winning entry, but I think there were far better ones, but oh, well. It really was amazing to see all those entries over the contest. So many talented people, seriously. I spammed my facebook wall with so many of those artworks, lol. I'm almost sad it's over. Would love it if they did another contest for the next game.

Same.
There were a lot of amazing entries.

I noticed that in the beginning of the game when you first come out of the cave, Lara does that little fall thing from the CGI trailer.

Thanks. Yes, that is a great painting. The artist is truly talented. But yeah, I felt there was a bit of a deviation of the theme.

NCFirebolt21 08-04-13 11:05

This is particularly one of the best original (that didn't look like they'd been copied off concept art) pieces that didn't make semi-finals.
Really love this!

Meh, her face mars the entire drawing, and I'm pretty sure that's why it didn't get picked. On a whole, it's a great drawing though :D So many awesome entries I've seen.

I actually really like the entry that won second place, it's not as blatantly 'action' as the other two, and looks quite cool ^^

I think he's talking about at the end of the CGI trailer when Lara is on the beach, she stumbles a little like she's completely worn out and can't walk. And when Lara gets out the den and we see the vista of the shipwrecked ships for the first time she stumbles like she did in the trailer.

Hey, that's my favourite, too! The detail gone into it is amazing! The face may not be perfect, but everything else is.

I made Lara's head life-size. It's not perfect, and still missing a ponytail. What do you say, should i make the rest? (I already have most of her edited)
