Same.. and the camera :p

I noticed in Med Sea (as far as I happily get after loathing Croft Manor, loving Med Sea and finding Thailans plain and boring) that the camera never seems to be a pest for me, it's not until Thailand that it starts moving on it's own to be all pretty and crap.

Hopefully in TR9 we spend less time on ledges. In fact Dark_Messiah even mentioned that they didn't see very many if any ledges at all in the wolf demo. I think CD may have totally ditched them, which is nice.

Fix the animations in TRU, get rid of combat entirely, shove in tons more tombs and puzzles because the puzzles with blocks were awesome, and I'd love TRU.

Combat in TRU isn't really bad if you know how to strategize.

Running while aiming the guns is fun. Pressing the grapple button to dive off the enemy and initiate a headshot is fun. Rolling out of the way is fun, but tigers maul you nonstop. Kicking is fun.

But everything else is meh. ._.

Oh, and that little thing where we could automatically jump over an obstacle in Thailand, which was only done like twice in the game, and only by chance in Amanda's Ship was fun.

just*raidin*tomb 23-05-12 03:26

Very nice indeed. And i feel many things improve/get worse depending on the level in Underworld. It's really strange. Like the animations in Mexico somehow feel better than the Med, but the camera seems to work better in the Med. It's strange. Ehh. And I need combat. If the combat was like Anniversary in Underworld it would be alot better too. I'm just glad this is delayed. It gives me hope that it'll be nice and polished.

My strategy for the tigers is to use the tranquilizer and kill them, or the sticky grenades.

Stevo505 23-05-12 03:28

Underworld really isn't a bad game... it just gets repetitive and dull sometimes, but overall it's still good.

I tend to move slower and be more relaxed in the med sea, so to me the animations seem better as I don't rush. I think it has to do with the swimming segment beforehand. The same in the Arctic Sea, I move slower in the air holes while platforming, and Lara's moves seem nicer. The game is beautiful in wet places and each time I replay I truly don't think TRU Lara is ugly, especially not in game. <3

That would bore me. I like to dance around and crap.

leglion 23-05-12 03:29

The only people i hear calling underworld Lara is ugly are her fans... All my friends think she's beautiful/hot.

Not ugly. Just not realistic. TRU Lara looks like an alien goddess or something.

Unfortunate for me the game crashes my PS3 in a couple of places. Mostly just the final level. When you're traversing to get to the gate and then later in the hallway when the thralls just keep coming and coming. The game just kept crashing. It was stuff like that and the animations and all those small things, that if improved would have made it a much better game. I will never get over what a shame that is. :/

Hopefully TR will be polished, fluid, and fun. There's so much we don't know still.

Oh and Underworld Lara can look beautiful and ugly depending on the lighting. I think for the most part, they did a good job making her look good in cutscenes. Especially this one:

I think people stopped playing the game and forgot what it looked like.

lol, alien goddess. to me she just seems like TR1 Lara, but more rounded out and detailed. So...alien goddess.

I luckily never had any crashes with TRU, or many bugs either.

TRU used to freeze sometimes for me in Mexico during motorcycle parts. Irritating. I hope there are no game-breaking bugs like that.

^^ You're right about the lighting. They did a fantastic job with that in the Xbox DLC. She looked amazing in those.

larafan25 23-05-12 03:38

Guise...

I always saw these..."doorways" or Japanese archeways thingies and thought they were just that, but this one looks taller to me, and like it's a "ladder" type of thing.

Plus there is totally a building in front of it.

From this shot...

It's odd how there is just that one tree with ropes tied around it. I wonder if it has significance.

I remember something being said about a rope mechanic.

I need to sleep, the truth is driving me cray cray!

AHHHHHH. ._.

....I wonder if Lara can commit suicide if we get frustrated. The ropes would be handy... :vlol:

I think that i heard somewhere that in japan that a rope tied around a tree means it's a sacred tree.

There should be a secret button sequence to make Lara commit suicide in a brutal way depending on the weapon we're carrying. :pi:

Just finished last 7 pages and OMFG your ideas guys! <3

Nemo_91 23-05-12 08:54

One question: will there be day/night cycle in the game?

I hope it won't be raining all the time.

There won't be like AC style day/night cycle, but yes. When you revisit areas there will be different weather/time of day. It's been confirmed. It definitely won't be raining the whole time. I don't even think it's raining in the two recent screens.

Ah, thanks. It's better than nothing, I guess. :p

Well the way they're telling the story, certain scenarios are only going to make sense in a certain weather/time/setting. Because of this I just think a day/night cycle would be a bit out of place.

LMFAO. Sorry, I read it with your signature.

But yeah, it makes sense.

I'm so proud of myself, I'm not buying into all the TR hype. I guess its my defense mechanism to not be disappointed again

Have you told your definition of 'Horribly Wrong' to Karl Stewart yet? :confused:

Yep! TR-related! I'm almost ready to share it with you guys. I've been working on it for a few months now, as a means of helping ensure TR fans feel like they've got inside access and representation at E3. You'll see what I mean in a few days. http://forums.eidosgames.com/images/smilies/smile.png

Sooo... does that mean we could have whatever she's talking about by the end of the week?

Bomb Fighter 23-05-12 16:39

Oooh, this sounds exciting. Can't wait! :jmp:

just*raidin*tomb 23-05-12 16:43

How would we have representation at E3 I wonder? O_o

Maybe they'll be live feed. :p

If live feeds then it might be through new TR site.

Um, yes...that does sound interesting, but...I wouldn't expect anything big. Not until May 31st.

Teasers :eek:


I wouldn't get angry if it was a little documentary film, something like behind the E3 scene. I would love them to show us how they prepare stuff for the show, and making decorations of the stage etc. That would be interesting to see :) Well, at least for me.

lcroft_lc 23-05-12 17:40

CD could do some stuff like this:
Assassin's Creed III: Road To E3
