Redwood City is in (or very near) San Francisco. Part of the Californian state. ??

I was hoping to see the game 100% polished at E3. :confused: :(

I guess the part we will see will be 90% polished at least. It might not be fully polished before reaching Gold.

What exactly makes you think so? I mean, what would be the problem to polish it for 100%? Why just 90?

Surely if it is polished 100%, it would mean it's ready for Gold? From June until October/November is 4/5 months. What would be the wait from Gold to release? I'm sure CD have been working hard to get it as polished as possible for E3, but I doubt it's 100% ready to go.

I don't believe it will be 100% polished it by the time at E3. It probably 4/5 months before the release date. And if they have times they supposed to polish it more and bug free. :)

Those are just nit-picks, don't worry they will be sorted in time. I do not think that the rigid fringe of Anniversary or Legend will ever make a return or that the buggy hair of Underworld will ever be a problem :). I really do believe that the game will be polished, they cannot afford to screw it up. They know how picky, we the Tomb Raider fans are :D. I cannot wait to see the bones in her fringe finally move in the opening cocoon sequence :D :whi:.

About finding artifacts/ relics? :p

Ask if Karl saw the "Pink Pony riding Karl" picture by NRO. :p

Mikky 01-05-12 17:31

I asked some questions for the first time. Nothing too fancy, but it would be nice if they got answered. :p

I asked if we get things if we collect them, not useless like in TRU.

Lukass 01-05-12 18:20

I have absolutely no idea what to ask. And seeing the last Q&A session thread had just two pages it seem like people don't know what to ask neither. I expect just one page (if only) of (dumb) questions this time.

NRO. 01-05-12 18:24

Ask them why their marketing campaign is so ****ty.

With reformulation and all.

Lukass 01-05-12 18:26

Well, people asked good questions actually, but they're from TRF (larafan25, Mikky etc.) so it's obvious the questions wouldn't be dumb, but oh my god almighty, look at this question :p

Quote:

why actually call it "tomb raider" and not ad "the beginning" or " beginning of an era" or anything like this?
after all, we do have a "tomb raider".

It's just like in magic circle, there's no way out, people will never understand :vlol:

*facepalm*

Mikky 01-05-12 18:30

It happened and It will happen again because of the lack of news. :p

Pacepalm at the last question Lukass quoted. :vlol:

Whatever they ahve better be the best thing ever. This is TReboot's second E3 AND the fact that it disappeared for a year almost only makes it worst.

Gurl, preach.

HL3 will slay if it's there.

Games tend to be finished (Go "gold") a few months prior to release. Around E3, the game should be over 90% polished, otherwise a delay is in order.

My dumb questions


1. in what stage is Tomb Raider now, do you reached beta stage?

2. what do you expect that people could be ask when we have the lack of news? my question therefore is what is CD strategy or marketing plan around this Tomb Raider game..I need know, like a Tomb Raider fan and big fan all what this new idea bringing. I feel that fans need know more about Tomb Raider strategy, something deeper like this works because in my eyes is really strange this silence ...Fall seems be realy full of AAA titles what have release date and people can pre-order these games and it seems strange because Fall is "at the door" and competittion/rivals doesn´t sleep ..where is some hype before E3 or some "breath of news"

:o

tampi 01-05-12 19:28

We could ask again about the length of the game.
They spoke long ago about 10 hours.
Perhaps they have added something during this time and the length of the game has changed.

But I guess this is to spend another bullet. :pi:

They're not dumb, but...

I can answer your first question right now - yes, they've reached beta stage.

And the second question is a bit complicated. You can put it easily - why is your marketing strategy so weird? (from fan point of view).

I doubt they would answer that question, though :p
