We spotted in a screenshot above Lara's head what looked to be a shape similar to the top of the giant Buddha statue, but a second...

There's something round up there.

Also, are we sure there are more of those on the island? R weee?

I think it's been said there ARE Buddha statueS. Well, they maybe meant the small ones. But this little detail on this picture wouldn't make sense then...

Anyways....the Buddha is connected somehow to the wires, I dare to think, so Rai's theory may be pretty accurate.

Hmmm...

Remember I showed you that small detail in the screenshot with a wire connecting to a building?

http://i663.photobucket.com/albums/u...afan25/stf.png

edit: Plus we thought in the screenshot it was a bug from TRU Thailand, but the longer wire can be seen in multiple shots from different angles.

Lukass 06-05-12 20:57

^ Yes. And isn't that thingy attached to the mountain the Buddha is on?

Gamd1011 06-05-12 20:58

I hope the story isn't ruined now...:(

I know right... I think they've solved the mystery before Lara has :vlol:

Nope, but it's close.

There is another wire closer to the area where the radio tower is on...

We are survivors!! <3

j/k

Edit: We should really stop this speculating now. I don't want to ruin the game for myself and the others. We may be wrong, but still...:/

Stevo505 06-05-12 21:02

LF, I thought that was just a graphical glitch like TRU Thailand?

larafan25 06-05-12 21:03

^So did I but it appears from multiple angles, there is another wire connected to a building, and the concept art shows wires everywhere...soo...

I wonder if we'll see Lara's reaction to that giant statue...I mean...her and Roth meet at that camp, wouldn't she see that giant statue and be like "da fuque"?

I want her to say it exactly like that :D

leglion 06-05-12 21:05

I think that's how they would erect the statue...

This is what happens when CD goes mute for a year. :vlol:

It's a solid piece of a rock. I think the Buddha was carved in the mountain, if that makes sense...?

larafan25 06-05-12 21:09

^Yeah, but it seems to be a different material in the concept art.

Being able to stand on the outstretched palm of that statue is how you'd erect me. :cool:

I want to dive off of that thing into the water below.

It looks like a different material, it's lighter.

larafan25 06-05-12 21:13

This just in, I think there are at least 3 flags on the spokes of the Buddha's head, but maybe 5...

http://i663.photobucket.com/albums/u...arafan25/5.png

It makes sense that you can't see two of them that well because of the direction the wind is blowing in.

So, she'll die or float or something.

Pffft, this is not Assassin's Creed and its famous jumps from ignited towers.

But I doubt that would allow her to dive from such a great height into the water. She'd probably drown :p

But it would kill her as the water wouldn't be deep enough.

Tomb raider's been doing those type of jumps since the original honey, Assasins Creed can take a seat. :ohn:

What makes you think Lara doesn't know how to swim?

There's no way the water below is that shallow. I'm sure she can float on the surface or something...even thought they haven't said so.

Or at least she'll drown, we like killing her anyways.

:vlol: Right,

what I was trying to say, that TR is supposed to be realistic, whereas Ezio jumps from 30 metres high tower to a bundle of straw :p

I don't see why the water would be deep as it would be make it awkward if she just went in water and drowned. And I don't care how deep water is, sometimes a fall like that is an instant kill so...

Well it hasn't been like that in past TR games.

As for the water being deep, the main waterfall in the hub flows out in that direction, and so do the waterfalls by the Buddha statue, fall down that way. In fact it looks like that is the ocean behind the base camp, so I'm sure it's deep.

edit: I think she's going to have to float on water, she must.

Why have we not asked this yet? ._.

just*raidin*tomb 06-05-12 21:22

Why would she just float in water? That is really lame. ._.

Lara can't swim, flashback to the first podcast, lol.

We know she can wade in water up to her neck, but we don't know what happens after that, all we know is there is no systemic swimming.

So I'm curious, like in TRL England, can Lara float across the surface of the water but not go under? Or will she just hit a wall?

just*raidin*tomb 06-05-12 21:27

Oh so you mean swim only on the surface? Doubt it... no swimming means no swimming.

I'm assuming they wouldn't put situations in which water was over her head for this reason.

I assumed this too...but there's a freaking ocean...:/

In this shot...

http://driber.net/os/tr9/Village_2.jpg

What could be at the base of those giant mountains? Below that drop beside the base camp? Water right?

So she must just die then, if she goes into that water?

I know this is theoretical water though, but if there was water there, then the result of falling into that water would be death...I assume...

just*raidin*tomb 06-05-12 21:34

It's probably a cliff which results in death. Like much of the first Uncharted.

Maybe on the beach and in the wreckage, but probably not in the water.

It just seems like the area in the night hub leads down there with land.

I just want the entire world to be reachable, even if I die from jumping off that Buddha. IDK. I'm confused.

edit: Wait, why couldn't you just see her head bounce around in the water? She did that in the E3 demo, so couldn't we do that?

We'll know when we get the game I guess.
