That's fine :p

All I was saying was that people handle frustration differently. And others shouldn't condemn him for it, especially if they don't know him.

Do you guys think the'll use unreal engine for the next game?

Peep Show 10-03-13 12:06

[QUOTE=dantedmc;6696259]Do you guys think the'll use unreal engine for the next game?[/QUOTE]

Nope, they will probably re-work the Crystal Engine for next gen and I don't have a problem with that.

Heckler 10-03-13 12:06

[QUOTE=Peep Show;6696256]OKAY guys, let's not talk about that guy anymore.[/QUOTE]

Yes please! Change the topic! The guy is a total dick for the show and Americans find that sort of humor funny which is not wrong at all... Mutual respect :hug:.... Wooosaaaaa! Woooossssaaaaa!

Gamd1011 10-03-13 12:06

I really just want a sequel [I]right now[/I]. :(

Why would they? Please no.

Supernova 10-03-13 12:07

I think the health system was really clever.

With medpacks you could have just always rushed towards groups of enemies and spam healing yourself. It would have made the cover system unnecessary. This way the feeling of needing to stay hidden and surviving feels more real.

How come so sure? :p I don't have complaints either, just interested. Though I hope they'll KEEP and improve tressfix hair.

Why wouldn't they? Its a much powerful engine for future games.

It's their engine, they have used it since Legend, do you really expect them to drop it? :p

MyRaider4Life 10-03-13 12:09

[QUOTE=dantedmc;6696259]Do you guys think the'll use unreal engine for the next game?[/QUOTE]

Why tho? Their current engine is more than adequate to handle the next-gen of consoles. I mean, look at the PC version. It looks STUNNING and runs without fault.

dantedmc 10-03-13 12:14

[QUOTE=Peep Show;6696267]It's their engine, they have used it since Legend, do you really expect them to drop it? :p[/QUOTE]

Well, not that I expect that. I am just curious. To me it could be much better if they used best of best.

[QUOTE=MyRaider4Life;6696268]Why tho? Their current engine is more than adequate to handle the next-gen of consoles. I mean, look at the PC version. It looks STUNNING and runs without fault.[/QUOTE]

You're right, PC version is stunning, though a little glitchy. But do you honestly think future game won't look better than that? Check out withcer 3 screenshots, deep down and many more... They definitely need an upgrade or try on something better.

Heckler 10-03-13 12:15

It's unlikely they would drop the engine.... It would be unfortunate too. It has grown a lot. It's on par if not superior to other engines in the same genre.

MyRaider4Life 10-03-13 12:16

[QUOTE=dantedmc;6696273]You're right, PC version is stunning, though a little leggy. But do you honestly think future game won't look better than that? Check out withcer 3 screenshots, deep down and many more... They definitely need an upgrade or try on something better.[/QUOTE]

Don't worry. :p I bet CD already have people working on optimising and upgrading their engine for the next set of consoles. If not, then I expect it'll be happening soon.

[QUOTE=aussie500;6696047]No idea where to put this snippet, so here will do. Did any Skyrim fans notice anything familiar about the voice of Nikolai? Very distinctive voice, the actor Vladimir Kulich also voiced Ulfric in Skyrim. :)

I just had to go chase that voice down and find out the name behind it.

YES! I did, its that guy playing the notes. I was looking for him in the Voice cast for this game but couldn't find him, i thought it was my imagination. Glad someone else noticed too.

Lio123 10-03-13 18:28

And what happen to Steph? I can see her concept art, but she is not in the game.

Roux 10-03-13 18:42

[QUOTE=Lio123;6696735]And what happen to Steph? I can see her concept art, but she is not in the game.[/QUOTE]

According to WikiRaider, Steph is that strung up corpse you can find in one of the caves:
[url]http://www.wikiraider.com/index.php/Steph[/url]

She's also supposedly a multiplayer character, but I haven't played that yet so I don't know.

trfanX34 10-03-13 18:46

Why did they take out any reference to her of the final product though? Maybe because she wasn't in any of the camera footage?

Oh, and btw, who the hell was recording the second part of the first camera video where [COLOR="White"]Lara is trying to convince Whitman to go into the Dragon's Triangle[/COLOR]? Lara and Whitman are talking, Jonah is cooking, Roth and Grim are listening to the radio, Reyes is sitting there, Alex is using a laptop and Sam is reading a book :confused: :p

Scorpio1991 10-03-13 18:53

Just beat the game 100% :yah:
Kinda felt cheated though because there is nothing really special :(

The ending was exciting especially when [COLOR="White"]Lara got her dual pistols in the end[/COLOR]:D
It's a shame it was [COLOR="White"]a quick time event, and there was no actual final boss[/COLOR]

Damn you Crystal Dynamics :pi:

BTW, what was written in the book at the end? :confused:

LNSNHGTDS 10-03-13 18:58

[QUOTE=Lio123;6696735]And what happen to Steph? I can see her concept art, but she is not in the game.[/QUOTE]

She was scrapped, but I'd like to think she didn't know how to swim and therefore drowned.

That's false, the two women look barely alike, not only in clothes but appearance-wise too.

I'll admit, I have never seen the woman, it was the only information I could find on her.

LNSNHGTDS 10-03-13 19:16

[QUOTE=Roux;6696808]I'll admit, I have never seen the woman, it was the only information I could find on her.[/QUOTE]

Originally, she was meant to be Steph (hence Lara saying "Oh God! Steph, what did he do to you?" ) but then the Steph part and the part were Lara reunites with Sam were redone, maybe other parts of the game too, and Steph was scrapped.

Another memmber thought that the reason they scrapped her was because her death wouldn't have any effect on the player, since we hadn't met her before, while all of the otehr crew memmbers die after we've met them via Sam's videos, therefore their deaths are more touching. This is just speculation but in my opinion it's the most possible explaination.

Finished my second playthrough today! :)
It was so fun. :D

Yeah. Because a burning corpse is always identifiable.

The woman in the cave is indeed Steph. The model is exactly the same from the early demo, where Lara actually calls it Steph. CD just removed the dialogue, and any mention of her throughout the game. But it's still Steph.

That's what I thought too, but then I rewatched the E3 2011 demo and she doesn't mention Steph at all, she says "What happened to you?", like in the release version.

Maybe I didn't look at the right demo though? :confused:

Mikky 10-03-13 20:46

Lara calls her Steph in the Crossroads trailer.

SpyrosMonster 10-03-13 20:53

Since there's no official main theme I made one using some of the OST from the game. What do you guys think?

[youtube]75YEIiS3Whg[/youtube]

[Xmas] 10-03-13 20:54

I think it's absolutely amazing :D It's sad this TR has no main theme :(

Isaac 10-03-13 20:58

[QUOTE=Mikky;6696999]Lara calls her Steph in the Crossroads trailer.[/QUOTE]

It's weird to see the line wasn't in the gameplay demo of E3 2011/12, yet only present in the crossroad trailer.

SpyrosMonster 10-03-13 20:58

[QUOTE='[Xmas];6697015']I think it's absolutely amazing :D It's sad this TR has no main theme :([/QUOTE]

Thank you! Exactly! It's a shame.
I really wanted something like the one I made especially the ending.
I wanted something that will make me feel the nostalgia!

They are adding those while they edit the trailer.

I let my little brother (he's 13) play the game, and he basically confirmed what I thought was wrong with today's generation of gamers. He liked the game, but his gameplay style annoyed me a lot - he just ran through levels, didn't look for [B]anything[/B] unless it was necessary to progress and actually asked me one time "Can she run faster?" and started making Lara jump so that he could abandon the areas even quicker. :rolleyes:

I don't get what's so enjoyable in being eager to finish the game as soon as possible?
Plus, he had the nerve to say that the graphics aren't that good. WHAT? Even on medium settings the world looks freaking gorgeous! :ohn:

I would have slapped him if I were you.

Some teenagers have a weird concept of what good graphics are like nowadays.

Mmmbop 11-03-13 01:06

Just found the last optional tomb, enjoyed them but didn't realise all of them would be so easy to find... Expected a couple more too.

jhs270694 11-03-13 01:08

I wonder how they will top this in the sequel.. Love japanese mysticism.

Himiko sounds very similar to Amaterasu. Hope they add izanami, izanagi, susanoo Tsukuyomi or Kagu-tsuchi in there somehow. Maybe Himiko was granted special privileges based on one of these gods or something. Very interesting

[QUOTE=Mmmbop;6697543]Just found the last optional tomb, enjoyed them but didn't realise all of them would be so easy to find... Expected a couple more too.[/QUOTE]

They definitely weren't hidden at all, some of them were directly on the main path and one in Shanty Town was right in front a base camp lol. The big white triangle was too obvious as well.

Yep, to be honest they couldn't have made them less hidden if they tried - a loud chime then message saying 'Tomb Nearby', those huge white triangles sticking out like a sore thumb and an icon on the map!

motoleo 11-03-13 01:25

I haven't even finished playing the game yet. At only two hours today, the story is so juicy, it's like the Chronicles of Tomb Raider.
