Peep Show 01-02-13 15:08

[QUOTE=Evan C.;6631246]My Xbox 360 crashed :vlol: holy **** I think I'm screwed.[/QUOTE]

Not surprised, my PS3 remains flawless. :cool:

Shark_Blade 01-02-13 15:08

Get a PS3 obviously.

Evan C. 01-02-13 15:11

I would, but my pockets are empty, and every money I get until I get a job is for the university. But after seeing TRU running on my best friend PC, with her GIANT led monitor, I definitely knew the next TR game had to be for PC, so I will save money and play it later there.

Tonyrobinson 01-02-13 15:29

I love PC gaming particularly for the classics but I have found in CD's games a bit difficult on the camera and controls and I had found more glitches than the console versions this isn't at all a bash at them just my personal experience it could well have been my disk. :)

It might just be in the US because its a gamestop ad.

I know the game is only one month away, blah de blah, but that's just makes the wait for new content seem even longer. Come on, CD, release something. Anything. Pwease.

Either something gets released later today or... *sigh* Gonna have to wait until Tuesday.

Valentino 01-02-13 17:55

Did you all love Lara (gameinformer cover Lara) at first sight? I mean, she looks nothing like her in game model which is kind of a shame. I like the in game model but I've said before would it have been possible for Square Enix to model the in game models?

[QUOTE=Billy959;6631450]it sucks living in a country where TR is not promoted sometimes :([/QUOTE]

Tell me about it, in Greece we don't get ANY game commercials for TR, or any decent games, there are only ads about cheap war games and cheap sports games, oh and cheap movie-based games.

Not to mention the product endorsement, we only got ONE Lucozade advert (that was something but still... ) .

I mean, promote TR, not Uncharted, lol

Dark_Messiah 01-02-13 18:31

If Sony really announces the PS4 and Uncharted 4 as Launch Title February 20th............

That would be a dick move. :p

But.. only a month left until TR releases. I can taste it already.. xD

TippingWater 01-02-13 18:52

Am I the only one that finds Lara's stealth kills too unrealistic? How can such a petite lady put down such big guys? This sounds so naughty, but it didn't in my head :o. How can she break their neck when she's half their size and basically has no muscle definition? :o

This is why - because Crystal Dynamics care more about cool-looking gameplay mechanics and having variety in combat and care less about realism.

It's just a game, you shouldn't think about it too much. :p

Don't forget the screenshot comparisons and the reveal of more multiplayer options. I would love a cast reveal for the other characters too so far I only know of two. I wanna know who Roth is. :p

It may be just a game, but please don't market it as realistic-survival.. Yeah just a bunch of mechanics that look sorta cool.

Then why do they desperately strive for photo realism when it comes to graphics, instead of using colour (still remaining realistic)?

Peep Show 01-02-13 19:35

They never said it's a real life survival simulation, it's an action-adventure game with survival elements, nitpicking for sure. :rolleyes:

If you want a completely realistic game go play...oh wait there isn't.

I guess they don't have much reaction time, really, they are caught off guard. It's a bit unrealistic though, since they should be able to push the bow away from their necks, but I don't really care, it's a cool move.

I'm pretty sure she's strangling them...

Weemanply109 01-02-13 20:55

^I think she is aswell.

Mikky 01-02-13 21:06

Well, don't strangles lead to neck breaks, if you do it hard enough? Anyway, even if it was just a strangle, that doesn't change the fact that the men are still way bigger and stronger than Lara. It's still unrealistic for someone as small as Lara to strangle them.

Yes, they should be able to push her aside with ease. It should be the other way around, if they get too close to Lara they should be able to strangle her, if you have low health. Oh wait.. there is no longer a health bar.

It's totally unrealistic. They should have left that move out, or just have Lara finish them off by sticking an arrow through their neck.

[QUOTE=Stevo505;6631741]I'm pretty sure she's strangling them...[/QUOTE]

Yeah this was the word! :o

Hmm... I bet someone from CD asked this before adding that move to the game :p..
[QUOTE]Can an average woman choke out a man? Like UFC fighters.?[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE]Yes, a woman can choke out a bigger stronger man. There are three types of chokes, Air chokes, Blood chokes, and combination chokes that stop the air and the blood flow. Chokes if applied correctly don't require strength. but they do have to be applied correctly.
[QUOTE]
NOTE: all chokes are dangerous and should only be used if necessary. Even then it is best not to bring someone to unconsciousness.[/QUOTE]

I completely agree. CD should have implemented 50% chance your stealth kill gets reversed.

Sure it's a game, but don't reboot the franchise and label it brutal and realistic, but apply such forging mechanics :p. I feel like there will be no challenge in this game except for failed qtes.
