I agree with you on the duals thing, but please, stop with the falling excuse as a way to make the character look bad. Classic Lara also fell a lot in most of the classic games. Honestly, it should be a trademark by now. The only one who didn't fall (that I remember) was LAU Lara.

It's about showing that loyalty back not assuming devotion. This is exactly what the bad attitude to duals and outfits has done - taken all the long-term fan loyalty for granted.
Gotta say, even if we usually disagree I enjoy reading your posts a lot lately. Thanks for replying. I agree with what you're saying. Of course long time fans need to be rewarded and I honestly believe they haven't done a very good job with the trilogy in this specific aspect. They should've been incorporating more and more classic traits with each game, and after the duals fiasco, I hope we get to see them in the next game. I mean just removing all the tribal outfits and replacing them with classic-inspired ones would've made the fans incredibly happy. And it's such a simple thing to do. I don't know what they are thinking.

On the nods however, they have done the minimum amount - 5 seconds gameplay with the duals, halfway towards classic outfit, barely anywhere towards the humour. At least they did the manor but overall it's not enough now we are 3 games down the line. I feel the gameplay is good but the way the iconography has been dealt with means I could never think of the reboot as being a great TR era. IWANEX I think you are pretty spot on though about what they need to do.
Yes, exactly.
