Besides, I don't even think we know for sure that she isn't a millionaire. There is a lot we still don't know about Lara.

Autocrats are 99% wealthy. Read up autocracy in England, they're practically landowners who were the rich class or gentry they were called in the middle ages in england. Except they were Knighted by the kings/queens which then only knighted the rich so... Lara is rich because shes an autocrat. C'mon i do know my own countries history you know, i study it at College

Ah thanks for the comfort steve :)

What I'm wondering is how she can afford to go to college and only work a bar job. And she has expensive technology like an iPhone and Beats headphones... :p

But I thought she didn't want her parents' money? Or was the old bio... I forget. Maybe you're right.

She refuses to flaunt the money in this bio, but it doesn't mean she didn't let her parents pay for her education. :/

This, meaning she doesnt want to show off her wealth implying shes rich, but i was referring to old lara. Plus, she (new lara) turned down an offer at CAMBRIDGE.. you know one of the best universities in the world? the best in England? I would Hyperventilate if i had an OPEN offer and probably faint, i dream of going there but they only take the best and its extremely competitive. If she's denying big things like that so then what makes people think shes not denying her parents money?

Ooooohhh.

Yeah old Lara was rich I think, she inherited it I believe, and made it too....maybe?

I heard old Lara funded her excursions by writing books.

Being rich and earning are two different things.

Old lara had lots of money.. but didnt really have a job to keep it up therefore she wrote books to keep herself funded. simple. :)
i mean you when you inherit something, you inherit everything not just the living space but wealth too.

Spong 21-03-12 03:14

LOL @ the people in this thread who genuinely believed me saying Lara drives a Fiat Punto. I put white text in my posts and everything :vlol:

New Lara works at a pub, wealthy people don't work at pubs. She turned down her parents money which implies her parents are still alive so she couldnt have inherited any money and no, I'm not picking on you. In fact, I didn't even realize I was replying to you until you mentioned it.

I finished editing the podcast at midnight last night and sent it off to our team in the UK to upload and to update the RSS feed. Then when I woke up and got to work the next morning, I prepped the blog and posted it. There are some steps between finishing my work and the publishing the podcast, hence the wait.

Also, I need to sleep at some point. :p

lol so much drama to upload a podcast where we have to listen about coffee, beer etc ****ty stuff. I wonder if CD is developing Tomb Raider for real or drinking beer. :pi:

CiaKonwerski 21-03-12 04:58

I'm getting to the point where...I think more info needs to be shown. At first I was appreciative that CD is keeping things tight-knit, but now might be the best time to start promoting again. Fall will be here before we know it, and so far all we have is the trailer and one short gameplay video. And I'm not talking about announcing the VA either, game features please. I really am afraid this will fall off of people's radars. It needs to be BAM, in people's face otherwise the only people who will still know about it is us. :l

Thought it was awesome how much it looks like Lara (Lara in general, it shows new Lara's likeness to old Lara and how she fits in). It makes me so excited to see Lara progress as a character through this new game and series.

I hope in future games she maintains the sort of exotic nature vibe and doesn't become... a sort of cold steel looking character.

Absolutely beautiful. Seriously. Wow.

That's fanart. ._.

Its mentioned in larafan25's post that its fan art. Unless you are amazed by the fact that it is fan art. Because yeah, it is really good......


As for new info. At this point all we know is based on what Karl has said.

E3 will be the combat reveal. The VA will be announced with more game detail apparently about Lara's "next stage of progression"(what ever that means).

With basically 2 months till E3, I honestly don't expect any info until then at this point. They seem to want to hide this game until the last possible moment before they HAVE to reveal it.

Tonyrobinson 21-03-12 13:02

Hopefully they set a solid date for it to drop by May and have good Promo at E3 and all those other conventions they are going to.

We have to bear in mind come June Tomb Raider will be shown at nearly every game convention there is atleast once a month and it will be different stuff they will show! After June they are doing something big at Comic con which will probably be their merchandise unveiling then in August they have two conventions to attened and show Tomb Raider and then another two in September! Once E3 hits they have huge plans in Comic Con and Tokyo with new content for each! :jmp:

With all that promotion we can kind of see the plan they have in place, lack of info now then a hype storm before the game releases!

Click!

I think you're thinking of aristocrats. 'Old' Lara was one, it's not certain if 'new' Lara is although it has been said she comes from wealth.

An autocrat is someone of unlimited power or authority. Sure this status would make them rich, but it's not the same as aristocrat, which is someone noble, usually born into wealth and often has a title such as Lord.

Everyone has a talent, they just need the key to unlock it. But finding that key is hard.

I would just like to take this moment to note that I have now noticed for myself, the running sounds and the ceiling debris in the E3 demo, marking the scavenger's appearance, and I have to say that is damn-well awesome.

I was peeved about the slly wolf cameras, but this is awesome, and how you do it, :cool:
