Except that Tomb Raider is actually a 'game' and Beyond (?) is more like... an interactive movie. The developers also have the luxury of being able to take full advantage of just one platform.

[QUOTE=SpyrosMonster;6406169]Ι didn't meant it like that sorry :p
I wanted to say when they give attention to the smallest detail (graphics, story and gameplay) then it's going to be a good game.[/QUOTE]

So you don't think CD are doing their best to do just that? I don't know what that game is, but if it's only on one platform, doesn't that go some way to making the graphics more realistic?

No. lol I actually love this Tomb Raider! I THINK IT'S THE BEST DO FAR!
I'm just saying that if CD actually made a game with a new engine maybe it would be better IDK... :p

That Image from Beyond is most probably a render though, the PS3 can't output at that resolution...

I have played Heavy Rain :pi: It's very good graphically but it's not THAT. And it renders in 720p.

The new TR game seems to look awesome IMO, better than Uncharted, Assasin's creed and many other games. Imagine how the game will look after release :eek: it will no doubt look great. CD is known for having good looking games, It isn't necessary to have the next gen to have an actual good TR game IMO just because a game has superb graphics it means is overall the best game ever. Next Gen also will be a curse to many starting with me, since only the wealthy and rich will get it once it's ''Finally (?)'' Released. The current consoles still have a lot of power to deliver lovely and outstanding graphics and TR will use most of the power this consoles can deliver. ;)

Evan C. 30-08-12 02:11

The real question for Tomb Raider isn't if it looks better than Uncharted, but...looks better than The Last Of Us?
I don't think so, even TR looks amazing, The Last of Us is just breathtaking, not only on graphics, but those movements, OMG.

JsotoTRSaga 30-08-12 02:20

^Most often exclusives are better looking than the other games of their genre. Quantic Dream, Sony Santa Monica and specially Naughty Dog are well known for taking advantage of this with their powerful engines (All PS3 Exclusive companies). The Xbox 360 on the other hand has some beautiful exclusives as well. Since the last of us is from Naughty Dog i wouldn't be surprised :)

Guys check out the Far Cry 3 island guide trailer.

The island in Far Cry 3 is huge and have various elements. This video now makes me think if TR will have that many types of animals and other stuffs!!

The island looks good in this. With that, I can't wait to see what TR has to offer, especially since CD keeps hyping it up...

CD hypes everything up. I think they (read: Karl) should just shut up and let the game speak for itself. If they actually have to make so much noise, its quite obvious that the game is not half as good as they claim. Plus, if they're going to reveal anything, better to make it small tidbits once in a while, than explode, shut up, and explode again.

Imo, they only want sales. They don't care about the franchise. Which is a shame cause this franchise was different from the others and the only thing they are doing is just making it a generic, mainstream one that blends with everything.

First of all, every company hypes up their new products. It's marketing, and I'm not even a marketing major. It's common sense. Do you really think CD is not going to promote the game at all? And of course they only want sales! That's the only thing companies want. Without sales they wouldn't be able to stay in business. I just think it's hilarious how you view CD practicing common business techniques as a gross, evil thing!

You're just pressed (I don't use this term often but you are).

Tonyrobinson 30-08-12 14:50

Well we shall see in the end if the game lives up to the hype. I am hopeful but I am also cautious after CD's previous efforts. However it is a new team behind this one and they made Guardian of the Light which was the closest we got to he classic Lara and gameplay from them but still fresh so hopefully this one will be a winner. :)

larafan25 30-08-12 18:32

I'd just like everyone to know that the game's environments are so pretty at night...

[IMG]http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg295/randomperson_2008/pretty-1.jpg[/IMG]

I love the trees in this area and I hope we get to see a beautiful place during the day (aside from this spot) with the pink trees.

It's the salvage hub where you get attacked by wolves with Whitman.

It's interesting how there is already flames burning in the distance creating an orange smog before they have even been captured...

Me too! I love how she's kind of crouched when running with the bow.

Take some more screens, please. As much as you can and post them. We'll fidn some interesting thigs I'm sure :'D

larafan25 30-08-12 18:42

Gurd.

This temple entrance looks quite mysterious from far away...

[IMG]http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg295/randomperson_2008/mystirgee.jpg[/IMG]

edit: I wonder if we can light those lanterns.

_Tomb_Raider 30-08-12 18:44

Where are all this photo's cooming from? :cln:

Lukass 30-08-12 18:44

I bet we can light them. It's the gate she's going to open with Whitman, no?

larafan25 30-08-12 18:47

[QUOTE=_Tomb_Raider;6407497]Where are all this photo's cooming from? :cln:[/QUOTE]

All access gameplay, from the start of the game (minus the opening den) to Lara's first kill.

Spoilas.

[QUOTE=Lukass;6407498]I bet we can light them. It's the gate she's going to open with Whitman, no?[/QUOTE]

Yep. It's that gate.

[IMG]http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg295/randomperson_2008/gate.jpg[/IMG]

I'm loving the statues, and those flags. Though I don't think there are poles on those flags so we can't swing on them. I think they're ripped...

The time between Lara meeting with the crew and finding this new camp is not shown. I wonder what happens.

Lukass 30-08-12 18:49

Dat gaym looks osm.

larafan25 30-08-12 18:52

I want a tomb the size of the Cistern with those wheels we have to turn with the axe.

[IMG]http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg295/randomperson_2008/urmagurd.jpg[/IMG]

Lukass 30-08-12 18:53

I want those statues to have some purpose. I hope they're not [I]just[/I] statues.

Mikky 30-08-12 18:56

That entrance looked so much more interesting and mysterious on the concept art. I was like, "I wonder what you do there! Where could that lead?! A tomb?!" But you don't end up doing anything too special or there isn't a hard or complex puzzle to solve. You just turn the wheel and all that's behind it is some stairs. :/

larafan25 30-08-12 18:57

Does anyone remember where the video of cutscene with Whitman is without Karl talking, so I cna hear Lara and Whitman?

[QUOTE=Mikky;6407530]The gametrailers montage video? The GTTV episode?[/QUOTE]

I don't know. I remember watching the cutscene and being able to hear them both talking, and them talking while they walked up the mountain.

Lukass 30-08-12 19:02

"I've seen these before. Around Steph's body..." :pi:

Why does it need a puzzle? Imo, it's just another version of a lever or switch; it just takes two people to do it.

Yep. That would be it.

Yall know those super HD nice looking screens? Where Lara looks so pretty?

I want this frame as one of those shots, because I know it would be gorgeous...
