No offence , but have you got any idea about the meanings of the words you're using ? becauseTR2013 Lara , as a matter of fact , is neither chubby nor bulky .

And Classic Lara's spaghetti arms and microscopic waist is light years away from demonstrating/representing fierceness or badassary imo , especially when combined with the tacky six packs visible in some renders , it adds to the whole caricature-esque , uncanny/grotesque look .

Shortness is another issue . Yes , she was indeed made shorter , it was a conscious decision by the devs .

LNSNHGTDS 01-06-20 17:40

She's literally thin, she's just not abnormally thin and her boobs are smaller so they don't contrast as much with the rest of her body as they did before. She's 1.68m, she's four whole centimetres taller than the average British woman so she's average yes but not short and definitely not "very" short. She's just shorter than before which is something that used to bother me but I honestly don't care anymore.

She's just a college graduate in 2013 with some climbing and archery training. Her model becomes bulkier, with more muscle definition and the baby face goes away game by game in the following two games so I don't know what your deal is.

Look how chubby and bulky this person is .

Yeauxleaux 02-06-20 19:03

Many girls would kill to have a body like that render. She still has feminine curves and an hourglass figure, it's just downplayed compared to the classic character.

I do have my own issues with her not looking enough like Lara for my tastes, which does include wishing she was taller and more leggy. I also do think she's styled incredibly plain in terms of her hair and clothing, to the point where it's a case of over-correcting sexualisation. I have never considered her unattractive though and think it's a reach when people say that too.

Pillis 02-06-20 20:52

That's the problem, they created her to be relatable because original Lara was an unrealistic beauty standard. Who cares?? I am sick of this pc policy. I want Lara to be sexy skinny, muscular, unrealistic and bad ass.

Pendrak 06-06-20 19:27

She's just a healthy girl in reboot. There is no problem in a HEALTHY girl, she looks normal, strong and sexy too. I totally don't understand the point of saying she looks unrealistic or not sexy. Please people go out and look at others around your town.

That's the problem, when I watch Lara and play as her I don't want to be looking at a random girl I can meet down the street.

Lara is beautiful in this trilogy, she looks absolutely perfect in Syria level in Rise - just imagine duals and a backpack and that's it, perfect LC in my book. Muscles in Shadow were cool as well but I like her face better in 2013 and Rise (rise is more detailed). I know it's subjective but calling this version LC unattractive is playing blind. Not everyone finds a plastic doll with giant boobs attractive xD

Reboot Lara is cute. Not sexy imo, but cute. Turning Point is one of the most beautiful Lara, only behind AOD and Legend. Of course, nothing, not even the orcs from Mordor deserve to be compared to that thing that 2013 Definitive Edition was.

Highly agree. Lara Croft does not need to be a Kardashian to please the players. I like how she looks gorgeous in the reboot games especially how beautiful and detailed she looks in rise. She looks normal. No big lips, big boobs, tiny waist and big ass etc. Simplicity has its own charm too. I love her classic version too but still appreciate her new models. The only thing the new girl lacks is a little bit of sass and attitude that classic one had. Hope she does show more of that in near future.

Pillis 12-06-20 21:19

She looks more like a Kardashian in the reboot because of her big hips and big butt and short stature.

Lol no. She's just fine. Her body is okay. Maybe hips got bit bigger but waist is normal and face is pretty normal.

We all knew since 2013, and we want it back.

Shadow wishes. :p

Anyone else notice how (at least in the US) Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is no longer on the PlayStation Network Store?

It's been pointed out in one of the general chat threads a few days ago, either the future of the tomb raider general chat or the general general chat, I always mix them up :p

A lot of people seem to think that it's because they're preparing something. Rise is apparently also gonna be July's PS Plus game.

Lara_Fan1 29-06-20 22:53

Why would they give Rise away for free (An Shadow on PSNow) if they're planning on re-releasing the games for money?

LNSNHGTDS 30-06-20 11:56

That's exactly the reason why I'm thinking maybe it's something new and not a rerelease of the Survivor trilogy.

Maybe it's a Lara Croft game?

Rai 30-06-20 11:59

That wouldn't be a reason to remove a game from the store though. Edit: I just clicked on the link and it's there.

Pendrak 30-06-20 21:46

Hi, I recorded another behind the scenes. This time it's the cutscene where Roth died https://youtu.be/DWKIG7--POo

Costel 24-07-20 08:48

Admit it guys. The first time you entered in that bunker in the Coastal Forest at the beggining of the game you thought you are entering a big tomb.

Vaskito 24-07-20 12:07

No. I thought I was entering certain death

Dermahn 08-08-20 13:28

Does anyone know how many people you need to get all MP trophies in this game? I seem to remember you need to be 4 people to play ranked :ponder:

Matie 08-08-20 15:51

That's correct, you need 2 vs 2 to get it started.

I never thought that so no thanks.

Valentino 19-08-20 09:25

Just started playing this again and it’s been a few years. Well, I’m just at the wolf den part where you retrieve the pack for Conrad, and....... I stopped playing :o
I’m not sure why I’m struggling - could be the slow start, but I think I’ve played it so many times I can’t deal with the characters and voice acting in 2020. I know it’s been discussed many a time but oh wow.....oh wow. I’m constantly slagging everything off in my head :o
Even the boring character designs are irking me! What’s wrong with me?! I see it with a lot of concept artists - especially when everyone wants a realistic gritty tone - all the characters are limited to certain and specific dress codes. I.e basic as ****. You see a lot of Rayes and Alex designs in other games.
Were we supposed to have more cutscenes of Lara sitting at a campfire watching the camera flashbacks? Because it’s set up like the camera was going to be this tool for some context and backstory on events and characters before the ship crashed. They even have an ‘extras’ section in the menu for the 2 cutscenes on the endurance. TWO! What was the point in having a section for 2 cutscenes. And who the hell is filming on the endurance? Is it not Sams recorder? They set it up like it is someone just capturing the goings on while sailing but it makes no sense. The crew is arguing at the table and someone Is filming and zooming in on character faces like it’s Big Brother. Very random way of presenting the story should just have made them cutscenes. And it’s not even Sam filming - Crystal obviously set it up as Sam being this camera savvy girl but someone we don’t know is filming everything (aside from the really really bad scene of Sam filming herself and Lara with the criiiiiinge dialogue.
Lara: “okayyyy okayyyy....... and Sam.......thanks” *stares at camera for 5 seconds smiling* ) you know the one.
And then you got the bizarre scene of someone filming Lara and Conrad talking from far away. What were Crystal trying to do? I really don’t get it. A lot of ideas seemed just for show and weren’t realised or conceptualised well. I think they were gonna try have these ‘learning’ reminders from Conrad too. Before killing the dear an over voice of Roth reminding Lara about “focus. the key is focus” (Well no **** Conrad) pops up and then again another one about following the stream back up to the camp, and then another one on the radio “remember when we climbed snowdon -just keep moving” ..... it’s like Crystal knew they wanted to make survival game so put in these survival vibes and elements and then they just went no where and were actually pretty corny.. But most of the tips are pretty obvious things people would do anyway and then these “tips” aren’t given again (not that we need them) from what I remember.

Damn I did not think I’d go on that long - I’m just surprised and it sucks for me that I can’t get past these silly things.....is anyone the same?

You got me confused with the ”no thanks” part. :confused:
Did I offer you something?

No, I was being too sharp as usual this can lead to confusion and indeed it has no matter I wouldn't take it to heart.;)

I haven't played a game since Fallout 4. Always meant to play this one but never found the time. Well, all I can say is, Wow, what a fun game. I'm playing it again while Rise of the Tomb Raider is down loading. It took me a bit to get my game on but its all coming back to me. I never played any of the TR games so this is all new to me. Great way to pass the time while working from home. Looking forward to progressing through the series.

Glad you liked it! Welcome aboard :D

puristic jink 23-08-20 20:46

Let's actually get things back on track I'd hate to think I was the one who derailed them ;) with too much banter I like TR 2013 greatly its just a shame that the sequels have gone off on a silly tagent.

LNSNHGTDS 24-08-20 08:28

Rise took a lot of the things Tomb Raider did good and built even further upon them while also introducing new stuff so I'd say it actually surpassed the first game in many aspects.

Shadow needed a little more time to be polished I think and then it would be just as good.

Hello! I recorded behind the scenes from a few cutscenes where Lara was helping Roth with his leg. https://youtu.be/iI5aKq48hUM

Finished it yesterday and it was allot of fun. Really enjoyed it. This is much better entertainment than any tv show. I haven't watched TV in months. I've just downloaded the third one, Shadow, and it looks amazing in all the media videos I've seen. Looks like I'll be busy for a while.

SnatchingEdges 11-09-20 15:16

I think TR2013 is the most solid in the trilogy in comparison, even if the tombs are really lacking. But yesterday I played up to the wolf battles and damn, I didn't remember it so intense. The whole introduction is definetely the best in the saga.
