crystal should take note , katies sounds clever,sensible and understanding to not only the company but the buying public aswell:jmp:

not leaving us hanging like this:hea:

You're very kind! :)

Community management is definitely part of the marketing plan but remember, Crystal didn't have a community manager until a year ago. The gaps between news releases/game releases should be filled with community goodies to keep everyone happy. Can't wait to get in as a CM somewhere - have lots of ideas!

E3 isn't far off now :)

Those who wants to listen to podcast why don't ask Meagan on Twitter? She would be pleased to see that the podcast is still an anticipated event. :p

Poor TippingWater is probably all alone now, crying in a dark corner somewhere. I hope you're happy :p

I don't want him to cry or feel miserable over boring podcast. I adore TippingWater :hug:

E3, guys.

E-FREAKING-3!


E3... :pi:

As boring as "Partners" could be, what the hell is it supposed to mean?
Also, why do they keep making mistakes on their website? First the icons, now the Partners thing. Jesus...

I think it's the same as sponsors.

Sir Croft 11-05-12 18:27

Oh... That doesn't sound good.

I think they're intentionally dropping hints (or someone at CD wants to anyway). :pi:

Because, usually, sponsors and games mean in-game product placement, and I'm not sure I trust CD with that.

Why? They handled the ducati and jeep stuff in TRL well, and I don't remember any other product placement.

Well, those were fitting because we always knew Lara was a vehicle lover. Mostly motorcycles, so Ducati was moer fitting than Jeep. But... What now? She's young and stranded in an island, and I don't want to see a Beats by Dr.Dre logo somewhere. I really don't.

I wouldn't mind seeing advertisements in-game, like beer bottles, coke cans etc, especially if those "partners" helped the game financially :).

b.gluch 11-05-12 19:40

those Beats earphones werent even out of place imo. product placement can be really cool if done right and not totally in your face.

I wouldn't expect to see Coke cans on a deserted island.

I say, expect a lot of cans and bottles :p.

Weemanply109 11-05-12 19:48

^Maybe, but most people wouldn't really notice labels on small cans that serve no purpose.

Actually that would be great because then the advertisement is not really in your face aka obvious, annoying and gross :p.

Weemanply109 11-05-12 19:52

I just don't see Coca Cola really putting much money into something that may go unnoticed in the game. I'm sure they'd prefer a big billboard or a message during the loading screens saying "Go grab a can of Coke while you wait!". :vlol:

Ha ha, I actually hope that they will keep those for loading screens! :D What fun! :3

Or an objective to find Roth/Lara a can of Coke because (s)he's thirsty.:p

:cln: That would be a stroke of genius. It would be really creative and original :D:vlol:.

scremanie 11-05-12 20:38

There are items on the island that are real, like the can of beans, and the peanut-butter. If you look at the pictures from the den, the objects around her are items with real brand names on them. This was also discussed in a podcast, if I remember correctly.

Weemanply109 11-05-12 21:00

Ohhhh.

You learn something new everyday.

These sound quite positive. I guess people know why the reboot was needed and how positively this will affect the franchise, after all.

Weemanply109 11-05-12 21:19

^Princess Peach. Who even plays Mario for that bitch? I play Mario games because of Mario. >:I

"CrystalDKarl: Hands up who loves the Pre-E3 thing........high fives :)"

Is he talking about the Spike pre show or pre E3 in general?

Hint maybe?

I bet it's some kind of a hint :D. It just has to be :p.

Lukass 11-05-12 22:32

Looks like I woke up at the right time :pi: Now tell me what he meant! D':

Linoshi Croft 11-05-12 22:33

Probably just generally :p

Don't get excited for nothing.

Going by the previous tweet, it seems he's working on something pre-E3 related, so it's not spike. A hint maybe.

Mikky 11-05-12 22:34

Pre-E3 thing? Thing? What does that even mean? What thing? ._.

larafan25 11-05-12 22:35

The thing....the time, the schedules, the workload, of pre-E3.
