I once had a dream that was basically the Turning Point trailer, but instead of Lara, it was Camilla's face. Mind you, this dream happened before they announced Camilla as the VA :p

By remember I mean that you can actually tell you saw the dream; We all see dreams and in fact thousands as one dream lasts a mere seconds (even though it might feel like hours) but we can't remember all of them when we wake up and some can't remember any of them.

I get lots of TR dreams, in which I'm playing the demo. I wait for one where I'm on the island and I meet Lara. :)

Lukass 27-10-12 12:34

I had a TR dream once, but it was nothing special. I remember Lara running towards some hut. It was really short dream.

larafan25 27-10-12 16:40

Before LCGOL I had 2 distinct dreams I remember. One of them was so accurate, I remember describing how she could do the dodges from LAU, and we didn't think she would be able to do them, but then she did/! D:

larafan25 27-10-12 16:44

Well she was fighting giant monsters in a dimly lit Mayan ruin, so it was actually extremely accurate.

It was fun too. I had all kinds of guns, just like in the real game.

just*raidin*tomb 27-10-12 16:46

I remember having a dream about Underworld and there being a forest with ruins around flooded with water. It wasn't very accurate but it was super cool. It looked like that Unreal Engine demo. If you know the one I'm talking about...Unreal Engine 3 or something with the forest weather demo.

[QUOTE=Spong;6500910]You said you had all kinds of guns. A bow isn't a gun.[/QUOTE]

Oh right, well I meant all kinds of guns and spears.

But no, I didn't imagine a bow.

Though I have nothing against the bow, nor do I obsess over it anymore than any other weapon.

Though if Crystal try to make the bow the new signature weapon, the only reason I'll be against it is because it's just plain awkward.

And plain unbelievable.

"[I]Quick! Mobilise the attack force, Lara's coming. Suggest we maximum strength firepower, she's got her bow with her and a good twenty arrows![/I]"

Beyond the utter nonsense of someone defeating a group of gun-toting enemies using only a bow, it also means that everywhere she goes there's always got to be a supply of arrows as well.

Well first off, that's kind of bas ass IMO. If she's that good with "just" a bow, and people are afraid of her. That's kind of cool. :cool:

Though you'd need a supply of ammunition everywhere you went if you were using guns too.

So clearly: The Axe should be Lara's new signature weapon.

SpyrosMonster 27-10-12 17:24

^ Or we can just stick to the Dual Pistols...

larafan25 27-10-12 17:25

Or we can just chillax and wait, so we have the bow, the axe, and any other weapons we can use such as dual pistols

Yall crazy or somthing?

It's not like the bow is Lara's only weapon.

It's ok with me if Lara's "signature" is the bow as long as she has the dual pistols too... :pi:

larafan25 27-10-12 17:29

What was so signature about the pistols anyways?

A. She always had them so they seemed like a preference

B. They were always visible on her.

Simple. She can be a woman of many weapons as she has always been.

Spong 27-10-12 17:36

[QUOTE=larafan25;6500942]Though you'd need a supply of ammunition everywhere you went if you were using guns too.[/QUOTE]

Not when she's offing countless enemies carrying guns, but I'm sure you knew that when you typed it. Unless she ventures into an undiscovered crypt beneath an archery club, arrows are going to be very thin on the ground. Enemies don't traditionally come armed with bows. Why? Because, outside the realm of sci-fi and RPGs, it's not a great weapon.

[QUOTE=larafan25;6500960]What was so signature about the pistols anyways?[/QUOTE]

She always had them. They were the default weapon in all the games (and the weapon of choice for proper players :cool:), pretty much all references to Lara outside the games depict her with the pistols, the live models all sported them. The list goes on really.

Well it would make a whole lot more sense finding a bow in a tomb than a shotgun or pistol. NOt to mention arrows stand up against the weather much better than ammo. I can see why Crystal would make it the default.

just*raidin*tomb 28-10-12 02:21

Okay the argument that its ridiculous for Lara to be mowing down enemies is ridiculous because its just a game and I want to feel like a badass and if Lara has the will and perseverance to defend herself then right on her.

Also wasn't Lara in some archery thing in college? Oh and bows require a lot more skill than guns. I love the weapon. It's great.

Realism or not, I don't care. It's a game. It's a work of fiction wrapped around the cloak of emotional realism.

starstruck 28-10-12 03:42

[QUOTE=SpyrosMonster;6500949]^ Or we can just stick to the Dual Pistols...[/QUOTE]
Lol my thoughts exactly.

Hopefully the bow is just a starter weapon of sorts.

Stevo505 28-10-12 04:46

The bow will likely become the signature weapon. It's in every single promotional art for the game.

scremanie 28-10-12 06:45

It's been officially stated as her new signature weapon. It'll continue throughout the series as her featured weapon.

Too bad she's not the same Lara. In the new TR, your Lara doesn't exist. So this point is invalid.

Although I agree with your first point, the second is also invalid.
The bow is not the [I]only[/I] weapon at Lara's disposal throughout the game.
Also, arrows can be crafted, so it's not like she'd have to find them laying around.
Whereas ammunition would have to be scavenged from dead bodies or mercenary camps.
And this is Tomb Raider, not Call of Duty. Lara would more than likely be alone on her adventures.

klona 28-10-12 08:50

I hope the bow doesn't say a signature weapon for long.

[QUOTE=klona;6501835]I hope the bow doesn't say a signature weapon for long.[/QUOTE]

Me too, I'm fine with it for this game but, starting with the next one, I'd really love to see it go (or at least lose significance) and see the pistols come back!

leglion 28-10-12 09:02

I don't think people understand the concept of a "signature weapon. Evidently by the last two posts.

A signature weapon is a weapon that is used by a character primarily out of all other weapons over a long period of games. It's not going anywhere anytime soon.

Why? I mean, ok, she's using it for this game because it fits teh concept but what about next games, is she gonna be the tribeswoman with the bow fighting mercenaries with advanced weapons? I mean is she stupid or what?

Anyway, I'm still gonna use the pistols so they can be my signature weapons for all I care.

Well, from what we've seen she's perfectly capable of fighting gun wielding enemies with a bow. And there are modern bows.

And that's if we do get the dual pistols.

That's because she doesn't have other long-range weapons in the beginning so she doesn't actually have a choice.

Modern or not they're still "uncomfortable" weapons and I don't think they're gonna be many people's weapon of choice, I might be wrong though.

As for the dual pistols for the 100th time, we [I]are[/I] getting them, they are an upgrade of the pistol she gets from Big Bad Russian Guy.

And because she's accustomed to bows. But the point is that it's not impossible to fight enemies with "advanced" weapons. If i remember correctly, various African tribes defeated the british even though their weapons were inferior.

Lara's comfortable with them. As look as it isn't poking you in the back there shouldn't be a problem. :pi:

If you think so...
