Random observation: There is one character in the game who will kill you in possibly quite horrible ways, then loot your dead body for supplies, leave your corpse rotting in the sun, and the proceed to kill all your friends using the supplies she just took from you (along with all your dignity). And she will do her very best to make sure you have not the slightest chance of a fair fight. This character, of course? Our poor little heroine…

Quite a disconnect between gameplay and story. But most of all, I'm disappointed that Lara doesn't randomly shout "I'm going to kill you, and then all of your friends, using whatever scrap I picked out of your corpse!" in firefights.

I find it quite annoying when you're in a situation where Lara moves or does stuff automatically as if the player is stupid. For example when Lara lights the torch on her own and you can't distinguish it, it's like let me do it on my own, I will light the torch in my own time.

Extinguish ;)

I kind of like the thing she does with the torches, certainly when you're on your way into one of the secret tombs. The paths leading to those are always pitch black, so you're bound to light the torch anyway. I like the way it changes too, from her lighting the torch on a nearby lantern, to her lighting her own torch once she gets the ability.

*searches for white text, finds none*

... Did you eat something funny today, Spong? :pi::p I thought you were against this Lara doing a lot of stuff on her own, without player input. Though I suppose lighting a torch is a bit trivial.

I would've been fine if she just lighted it on her own, but she usually extinguishes it before I want her to, which makes me relight it again for a few additional seconds :p

oops lol. I would light the torch anyway, but I'd rather do it on my own than the game force me to do it.

With a game so easy, you have to wonder why it was rated M.. it's just an insult to the player when we're constantly being told what to do, where to go, repeatedly especially when we pretty much already know what to do.

They can't pull this in the next game.

it was rated M because it contains copious amounts of blood and violence ...

The difficulty of a game has nothing to do with an M rating. Though I think I get your point. Point being that it is meant for adults that understand and can handle the mature contents. When you are an adult you have a fully developed brain, more knowledge. Thus you shouldn't need your hand held.

It's almost like it wasn't a real game.

I actually think that it contained exaggerated amounts of blood and violence so that it would get rated M. An M rating can be a marketing tool; a way of saying "This is serious business!" See http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...RatedMForMoney

Easter egg?
 
Did anybody Remember to burn the sacks at the very beginning of the game? I grabbed a torch and there were two sacks to be burned, both containing a boot and some bottle. The boots very much resemble Lara's old boots. I don't have a screenshot, but the sacks' locations are: one in the small room where Lara falls on the scrap of metal, and the other one is by Steph's body

Spong 11-04-13 15:46

^Steph's body? Who's Steph? There's no one in the game called Steph :pi::whi:

Sabi96 11-04-13 15:48

"The dead body Lara finds after she leans on that piece of wood" is supposed to be Steph

Spong 11-04-13 15:49

^I know it used to be Steph, but she's been surgically removed from the finished single-player game, that body isn't her any more :eek:

Concept art that you unlock says otherwise. :whi:

And every sacrifice has the same clothes. Her hair is Similair to sheph's

I wouldn't know, I've never looked at the Extras. From what I've heard it's all pointless filler material that no one's interested in.

The concept art and the character models are really pretty, you should check them out :)

The fact still remains though that she was removed from the single-player game.

I'll pass thanks. I hate so-called "rewards" like that, they're not rewards at all IMO.

Yeah.
When I think "reward" I think money.
Make a note of that for the next TR.
We should get cash rewards for game accomplishments.

LNSNHGTDS 11-04-13 16:13

Concerning Steph: It used to be her but in the concept art and the multiplayer model the actual Steph is completely differnt from the sacrificed body in the cave not only outfit-wise but face-wise too.

So, even if that body was meant to be Steph it, strangely enough, looks nothing like her.

Weird...

Or at least CD should spend money on the rewards. All the rewards you can get are things that CD has made anyway and that you can actually see in the game (either directly or their eventual result). It's just regurgitated, and I don't really see the point of it.

Well, it's nice to look at them for like once but that's it, I would have prefered something like the Outfits in Legend and Anniversary but unfortunately all the extra "outfits" were DLC and not really outfits anyway -_- ...

I did enjoy examining the relics and reading the documents however so that makes up for the lack of proper outfits, I also LOVE how Crystal always does extra research for the descriptions of relics, it just goes to show how much they actually care to deliver a proper story and backstory and historicaly accurate information, Rhianna might have been a bad writer but all the extra research for the information for the relics was rather satisfying :tmb: .

lol, they're just brown wellingtons/gum boots. :p

I wondered if there was a TRF-relating Easter Egg. When Alex says on the Endurance "I'd follow you almost anywhere Lara..." it reminded me of the "I'd follow you, Lara, but..." thread.
