[QUOTE=Mikky;6539634]Personally, I love it. The only think that really irks me is her face. She literally has no facial expression. Is she sad, is she determined, is she angry? I mean, I can't tell at all because she just looks like she's looking at the floor, day dreaming. But still, she's very beautiful and detailed up close, so that's why I love it.[/QUOTE]

I think her face perfectly reflects determination - she's aware of what she'll go through, and she's willing to fight for it. [SIZE="1"][COLOR="White"]so she can get off the island and get new implants[/COLOR][/SIZE]

Perhaps this is why they decided to show her entire body. Her pose is also representative of what the character is thinking and if you see the whole image of her body, she has her hips in a more advanced apposition than her shoulders, indicating a tendency to stay at least a little more time where their shoulders seem to go (back) But again the position of the head relative to the whole figure is in forward position, with the chin tucked in signal protection and frowning slightly, indicating all that though she is hurt and rain and wind whips her body, she has her feet firmly on the ground, determined not to be cowed by the situation.

I believe [Xmas] was referring to the expressionless bit.

Woah, okay. So... technical. xD Are you some kind of body language expert then? :p

...the full body pose certainly adds to this. It's a stance of determined reflection.

Sooo I donīt see this report anywhere here...itīs coming from french fan group called TR Univers:
[QUOTE]We've just passed two wonderful days with Meagan Marie and Square Enix France !
Yesterday we had exclusive opportunity to play the first 3 hours of the game and our detailed report is ready.
Unfortunately we can't release it before the 4th of december because we signed a confidentiality clause.
We can just said to you that we are reassured and we can't wait to see the rest !!!![/QUOTE]

This means new info is coming before Dec. 4th.

Thanks for updating us, I guess this means that December 4th is the date we get more media. :jmp:

Valentino 28-11-12 23:37

I dont know when I should stop looking at media. I feel like i've seen loads but if its a long game and there is more to see I might sneak a peek at a few more things coming up. But like I said I keep forgeting how much i've seen. Den gameplay, leaked night hub gameplay, parachute gameplay, cliff side gameplay, deer gameplay, cabin gameplay, wolf gameplay, and [COLOR="White"]Lara being captured with Whitman and escaping[/COLOR] gameplay. Thats quite a list :/

We've had gameplay from the first hour of the game, it seems a bit too much and bordering too spoiler-ish, but at the same time, I still want to see combat. :cln: That's all I need, tbh an emphasis on combat and one last trailer.

I think the thing we really need to see is traversal. It's one of two things we haven't seen much of.

Underhoe 28-11-12 23:54

What if those 'first 3 hours' are nothing but all the demos we've seen combined? ._.

I was thinking this too :s but then again at the same time most of the media we have seen is from the first hour of the game. And considering the game is supposedly 12-15 hours long I think we will have plenty surprises in store :cln:

[QUOTE=leglion;6540061]I think the thing we really need to see is traversal. It's one of two things we haven't seen much of.[/QUOTE]

Yes, Combat and traversal, I forgot that.

[QUOTE=Underhoe;6540062]What if those 'first 3 hours' are nothing but all the demos we've seen combined? ._.[/QUOTE]

All the demo's combined all add upto an hour, AFAIK.

Bomb Fighter 29-11-12 10:30

[QUOTE=Underhoe;6540062]What if those 'first 3 hours' are nothing but all the demos we've seen combined? ._.[/QUOTE]

They arenīt. The report says [I]world exclusive[/I] opportunity (I forgot to add it in the translation) to play the first three hours of the game.

And as Weemanply said above, all the stuff weīve seen is about 1 hour long.

Stevo505 29-11-12 11:27

Are we going to get to watch those 3 hours..?

TippingWater 29-11-12 11:33

[QUOTE=Stevo505;6540479]Are we going to get to watch those 3 hours..?[/QUOTE]

I doubt it.

Bomb Fighter 29-11-12 11:56

[QUOTE=Stevo505;6540479]Are we going to get to watch those 3 hours..?[/QUOTE]

Yeah, I doubt it too. And I dont mind, it would show to much from the game, at least for me.
We may get magazine articles, screens, trailer or short sneakpeak showing combat or traversal like we did for TRU.

Lukass 29-11-12 12:03

I want the trailer Dec 7th. Holy hell it has to happen.

Underhoe 29-11-12 12:11

If I'm completely honest I'd rather see screenshots shown than videos. Simply because when I see a screenshot, I try to create my own gameplay around it, and it gives some sort of excitement - which may be either good or bad of course, but in the end it's a surprise anyway. This is a good way not to spoil anything (or at least not as much). Also I find it more pleasuring to see a HQ screenshot than a very bad quality video. ._.
All in all it looks like Crystal is thinking in a different way, as they seem to give no damn about screenshots or whatsoever.

LNSNHGTDS 29-11-12 12:13

^ Screenshots are really boring so I wouldn't blame them, and their videos are not that crappy, therefore I'd definately prefer a video.

I wholeheartedly agree with you.

^Glad to see I'm not alone. :p

Are these guys playing the Den demo? :confused: Note that she has no bow, so it can't be the deer one.

just*raidin*tomb 29-11-12 19:06

That's definitely the den. They played the first 3 hours of the game apparently. Or something like that.

It's been ages since I watched this. Remember when...

I hope to GOD they keep that scream when she gets impailed. Its amazing. But have you heard what they changed it to in the crossroads trailer!? D:
And that demo made me smile so much when I first watched it. I was so happy with the look of it. But then again I love everythink Crystal does (apart from exclusives)

Both sucked TBH.
In the first demo she didn't really scream at all.
And in the newer builds it's too... soft. I don't know. It's more like shrieking.
