Oh my.

I forgot about April fools and how **** goes down and then I get sad because it's all fake.

This year is sure to be a boring April fools. I'm sure.

Bring on the trailer anyways.

Hopefully there's a media campaign hitched to the front of it.

Talk soon!

...I asked something like Can you tell me if there will be something about TR on GDC 2012?

Maybe they'll give us actual news. We'll be fooled because we weren't expecting anything. Genius.

Ooohhh, maybe. :pi:

I'm starting to think though, April and May seem like good times.

Meagan said they're not going to tell us when the big drop will come, so it must be before E3 as they told us they'd be there.

April-May it is.

April is a nice gameplay trailer month.

Killercowz 06-03-12 23:31

YUSSSS!
No info!
:jmp:

Might as well wait the whole year than like nine or ten months.
If your going to take a huge break, do it right.

:tmb:

Stevo505 06-03-12 23:31

We've waited this long, we can wait some more. I'll just die a little inside each day.

Exactly, we'll be talking about this for years to come about how we waited so long for new TR info.
It's epic.

Rai 07-03-12 00:02

I reckon CD must have this alternative dictionary which has a completely different definition of the word 'soon' just as they had a completely different meaning to the word 'epic'. :pi:

Real definition of 'Soon':
Quote:

1. within a short period after this or that time, event, etc.: We shall know soon after he calls.
2. before long; in the near future; at an early date: Let's leave soon.

Dictionary.com

CD definition of 'Soon': A really long long long long time after us saying it.

:whi:

Lukass 07-03-12 00:11

Exactly. If they said "in the future" (not "near future" though) instead of their constant soon it would be hugely appreciated. They are really idiots. If I asked them when my cat will die, they would probably say "soon". :/


Edit: I have no cat fortunately.

TheRCroft 07-03-12 00:26

Really, I'd love to know what exactly is their strategy and why the hell are they taking so long for releasing something. I know that I am completely losing interest and so will other people. Would it hurt to just release a screenshot or something? I know they want to give people time to adjust to the new Lara and all that, but am I the only one who thinks it was way too much? Can't they just say when exactly are they going to give us something, instead of saying "soon" all the time?

Sh,Sh..Calm down my child..Sh...
They will release something SOON

leglion 07-03-12 00:29

But then again, each persons perception of time is different so soon can never be a definite amount. Perception of time differs especially when referring to different things such as dinner will be ready *soon* and the developers of an AAA game that takes years to complete saying something will happen *soon*.

TheRCroft 07-03-12 00:30

^ Well and that's exactly because we don't know what CD understands as "soon", it would be better if they just tell us the month or something.

Theyre not telling you a date on purpose to get you riled up and that itself makes the wait seem longer than it actually is. To CD or people who aren't waiting, the days are probably flying by. But the thing is, people are saying it like CD are contradicting their words which they're not.

Well....someone heard somewhere that we'd be getting a trailer in Q1 of 2012.

Can anyone say when that properly ends?

It was in early 2012 there is no definite time for that but I'd assume that'd be in q1.

Love2Raid 07-03-12 00:49

March should be included in Q1, Q2 starts after that.

Edit: lol, fail. :vlol:

(I blame it on the time! >_<)

Killercowz 07-03-12 00:51

3*4=12

3 full months equal the start of April.
All of Jan, Feb & March
/stating the obvious

It ends soon. :p

PS: I doubt we'll be getting anything.

larafan25 07-03-12 00:52

Ahhh, so it does only say the beginning of 2012.

Good, it's vague, we can't hold it against them.

QUICK!

Someone split 2012 into the segments of a storybook and find out when the beginning ends! D:

Hense my post on the definition of 'Soon' :p

All well and good, but by definition, 'soon' is usually not that long, ie: months. Of course there's a difference between 'let's leave soon' and the 'soon' in reference to news on a game, but soon does mean within a short period of time, not a long period of time. Crystal D do seem to be stretching the limits of 'soon' and they keep saying it. They could try being a little more specific. Say, 'within the next 3 months' or 'in the Spring'. I can only assume that CD say 'soon' to cove their back in case something takes longer than they anticipate, but a rough estimate or even an exaggerated one would be a way keep people from assuming what is meant by 'soon', which appears to be an infinite amount of time, which it doesn't mean.

@Larafan, The beginning is the bit before the middle :p

But less than a few months puts a definite time on the term soon so you sorta contradicted what you said. :p When did Crystal say soon anyway?

Oh December :/ I thought it was some time before E3 :/ Then I'd guess we could get something at the same time like the mag was out.

The second series of Magazines with Lara on the cover biting her arm or whatever, that was in April wasn't it? Or May?

I can't remember, it was too long ago :p. No I'm being silly, but they have used that term a lot and quite frankly, it's a bit tedious. I'm sure they've used 'soon, to define when the next bout of news will come - a loong time ago.

@Larafan, Pre-E3/early 2011 according to the Media thread.
