The soundtrack is probably going to be mainstream, but I hope to God, the game is not as mainstream as it may look now. I hope they left something (the something is so hard to describe, but every TR fan certainly understand what I mean) for fans too. It would be sad if TR was just next game amongs the others. I want it to be different, ours...

Probably a month. :/

I know what you mean.

A lot of the game's systems seem very similar to other popular stuff out there now, don't get me started on survival instinct. A lot of games are having bigger environments, Assassin's Creed has tombs which when I spot in screens and videos look much nicer than what I'm used to getting in TR.

I wonder what this TR will have that will feel like TR, that isn't Lara.

The soundtrack is really disappointing me... we've already found several stock audios in it :/ Don't they have an OST? :/

Underhoe 24-08-12 01:08

I want a mod where Lara's tits have saggened into oblivion, with ultra-realistic physics, so we can use them as a weapon like they were some kind of tentacle, and strangle enemies to death.

Peep Show 24-08-12 01:08

I'd kill for a demo, if there is one it will probably come out in February though. :/

Yes... there will be a score and a composer.

I wasn't really asking, it was a rethorical question, of course there will be an OST :p But I meant that they are including waaay too many stock audios in the game.

How? There has only been one. The rest were in the trailer.

Still, it would be better if they used the game's OST or fitting songs in the trailer, just like they've always done.

Yes, this. I don't really know why they used the mainstream track in the trailer. Like I said earlier today, it looks like they just didn't put enough effort in the OST.

Well, TBH Anniversary's music was random classical bobs and doohickeys from what I could tell, and TRU had Lachrymose. Not sure about what came before though.

Well TRU had Gorecki. Most games and movie trailers use licensed music today.

That's why I said '...or fitting songs...' - not stock music.

@Lukass - exactly
@larafan - it was still an original score composed for the game though (except for Mozart in TRU's teaser)

I'm so excited for the village hub! http://i1154.photobucket.com/albums/...evus/shgif.gif

I want to cross that river so bad, to the long building on the other side, there is stuff there which can't be seen in any of the screens, it's so interesting!

OMG guys, remember that morning/afternoon/night when we were watching it live?
We went absolutely insane when we saw her face for the first time.
Oh it was brilliant.

larafan25 24-08-12 02:18

I thought of AOD the second I saw her sitting on her bed. So wild!

italibabee 24-08-12 02:19

I thought of Claire Redfield when I saw her sitting on the bed!
:vlol:

It was one of the most epic feelings ever when I first watched that trailer live. :D

When she said "Something... something that keeps us going", then the scene where she's running down the hallway, I almost died. D: The emotional connection was great for me. <3

I still get chills during that part. Watching it live was one of the coolest things ever.

Lukass 24-08-12 02:34

I remember I couldn't even breath, the black screen and then....A famous explorer once said...


Holy ****! I was shaking actually :vlol:

italibabee 24-08-12 02:41

OMG. The goosebumps I got, and chills?!
Amazing.
I never got that from a video game trailer before!
Especially when you heard her voice and saw her for the first time.
:jmp:
I think I actually stayed up till 3 or 4 in the morning to watch it live on my computer!

larafan25 24-08-12 02:52

The moment when she splashed into the water, then the moment when all the water plashed towards her in the hallways freaked me out, I was too excited!

All of these. <3

I definitely think it was the best TR trailer to date--one of the best video game trailers to date, IMO.

There was something just... so amazing about it that I can't really articulate. I still get chills when I watch, which is surprising considering how many times I have watched it. :D

SeanCordernay 24-08-12 03:39

*Goes to watch trailer right now*

skylark1121 24-08-12 04:09

Lol, me too. :D

Me three-- still amazing! Too bad what followed wasn't so impressive visually, but I guess that would be pretty impossible on current gen hardware :p.

_Tomb_Raider 24-08-12 14:18

EDIT: Never mind...
Thanks to Khaled, video will be done soon. :)

MeaganMarie 24-08-12 16:18

FYI guys, trying to get the podcast up today! The last part needs to be handed off to a different team to update the RSS feed, and sometimes that takes a bit. I'm sorry for the delay!

Evan C. 24-08-12 16:21

Sweet. Any hint of when are we going to get the second part of the Documentary? :)

King.Louie 24-08-12 16:21

Thanks for the update Meagan :hug:

_Tomb_Raider 24-08-12 16:25

Can't wait! :jmp: :jmp:

skylark1121 24-08-12 16:26

Can't wait to hear, thanks Meagan! :D
