Actually, one of them says something like "I'm not tomb raider" before she climbs her way down into a cave. :p People mention it because TReboot pays homage to it in some of the scenes- when Lara pushes herself out of the collapsing cave, when she's peering out of the bloody water, and more I forget. Watched the first movie and liked it! :D

So they're just cannon fodder? They're more like extras than the actual supporting cast, not surprised I didn't recognise the names.

That's right. According to the comic, the character we've seen were the only on the Endurance, even during cutscenes we just see the main crew, just like in the wreckage. However, when the russian guy capture them, there are like 5+ characters that came out of nowhere. That's what I call a logical development in secondary characters :whi:

Liam is the guy who Alex performs CPR on in the very first cutscene. Guess he died there. Victor is the guy you can see lying on the ground before Lara climbs the rope ladder in the burning village, when she talks to Roth and tells him he had to kill some man.

I think you can also see him when Vlad shoots a man after he captured Lara, he's the other man who runs away if I recall correctly, but I'm not sure.

Liam did survive due to Alex and he is later seen at the Mountain Temple, he is the dead guy whom Lara gets the bullet rounds from sometime after killing Vlad. Victor was also the one who screamed "Lara" and "leave her alone" when Vlad was touching her. Then a guy tried to escape but he was shot by Vlad and Liam and Victor managed to escape.

Everything is a mess considering secondary character to be honest...!

tomee 03-07-13 11:05

Ah okay. I see one every day in multiplayer and still mange to mix them up. :p
I wonder what their role (And Steph's too) was on the Endurance.

So, technically, they're not in the single-player at all because they serve no purpose to Crystal's precious story. No wonder I'd not heard of them.

trfanX34 03-07-13 12:18

The guy who talks to Lara at the end of the game is also Victor's model I think :p

That's what I thought! I looked at the Russian round up scene and I was like, "Isn't that that guy from the end of the game?"

Patrick star 03-07-13 15:46

I know some of you will go insane but I just discovered that I played TReboot 25 times !!!!
it's the only game I replay more than 20 times under my ADORABLE TR3 which I replay every 2 weeks :D
maybe because I love the FLAWLESS escaping the den section so I end up playing the whole game every time lool :vlol:

That's what we're all wondering.

It's a name trademarked by SE. There are apparently some reserved websites too.

italibabee 03-07-13 22:43

Didn't they say we were going to hear about it soon a while ago?

I'm hoping LC: Reflections is something related to the 20th anniversary. It's not that far off now and would be an adequate time to reflect *wink* *wink*

Can I tell y'al what I'd do if I was me and in charge of TR?

COME THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY, Lara Croft: Reflections is released.

It was hyped up with a CGI Teaser trailer, but nobody knows what the game is like. What is it? Is it even a game?

Y'all buy it, you put the disk in, it doesn't take you to a menu.

BAM. You're Legend Lara. You're standing in an ancient jungle place, in front of another giant stone dais. YOU'RE PLAYING TOMB RAIDER LEGEND!

You have to solve a puzzle it appears. The puzzle relates to the coordinates on the stone pillars, which dictate where the portal takes you.

You choose a coordinate, and jump through the portal.

BAM. You're TR5 Lara, in a brand new TR5-era level, with remastered visuals, it's a brand new adventure.

The other portal coordinates take you to a new level in which you play with the TRA mechanics, and a new level in which you play with reboot mechanics, and new GOL levels.

Cause I am Godly.

<3

OMFG though, when is the 20th anniversary?

Spong 03-07-13 23:04

^Was the double line spacing really necessary?

larafan25 03-07-13 23:05

Spong 03-07-13 23:09

^Don't spam :smk:

They won't be celebrating any anniversaries. It's a reboot people, you've got another ten years to wait now (not that I think TR9 will be worth being given the Anni treatment).

trfanX34 04-07-13 01:00

Omg, I didn't know Lara could die like this :yik:

I never experienced the giant's 'surprise'. And jumping on the mine looks like fun until it explodes.

Did no one round here play the game properly? :confused:

:p

Rai 04-07-13 01:56

And they say there's no replay value. Pfft. It's worth replaying just to try out different ways for Lara to be killed :p.

I tried that nothing happened. Woulda been hella funny if it did.

tomee 04-07-13 07:05

I did that on my second playthrough. Turns out the stalker actually did notice Lara wasn't there. Was mildly surprised. I actually expected that the game wouldn't let me go back, then boom. :vlol: :o

Sabi96 04-07-13 11:54

Did you know that in the scavenger den, after killing the scavenger, if you wait, not run, Lara will just drop dead. No stones, no rocks, just plain drops dead.

And btw i got a controller today, and i don't need the dlc, for i play on the pc, so if anyone wants it should pm me and i'll send over the code (scavenger archer)

Haha yeah, I noticed that too, before the release on the launch party. I was exactly at that point, just stopped playing to talk a bit and Lara kept dying there. :vlol: (Or was it at the xbox next to me, I can't remember anymore.)
That death with the Oni was also quite shocking to see for the first time. o.o

Kinda makes him look as though he's made from stone :cool:

I want a place like this in TR10:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHR3y...layer_embedded

And that temple should be a temple, that we go inside, to find things. And it's all very open outside, and explorable. It's perfect.

I'm not fond of the desert location but the architecture is nice.

dream raider 05-07-13 15:09

Anyone noticed the TR trend- all blondes are evil! Natla, Sophia Leigh, Amanda (grey area "evil" for me, but still...), Whitman, Mathias. Kill the cliche please! We don't even have one goodie blondie! :rolleyes:
