I was in the Catacombs (TLRV) and I could do the rope jumps pretty quickly, but after that my L2 button died. I'm playing on Steam with a PS4 controller and DSIWindows, now I can't sprint or bounce on the ropes!

I fortunately have another controller, but couldn't this one break in another level? jfc.
aw rip, i'm sorry to hear that. i'm terrified of any of my controllers dying

so is the constant bitching about how you've been personally victimized by reboot lara croft and ever since her conception snakes have been physically manifesting in your house but go off i guess paulo junior's mom

It's nice and everything, but very superficial. For all of TRF's problems and as heated as it can get, at least we have actual in-depth discussions of relative substance.
I posted in there yesterday and asked the simple question which was "which iteration of Lara Croft do you prefer?" followed by a picture of CLara, LAULara and RLara. The first comment went something along the lines of "the one with the realistic body proportions" and I just immediately deleted my post. But yeah all those Shadow screenshots are hella annoying.

All the negativity on TRF is 100% the fault of the people over at CD/EM/SE not communicating with fans. Okay, maybe not 100%, but I'd say 70% since the Shadow era was a hot mess.

Damn it, if I knew it was that easy to make you people leave.
I prefer that one too.
Now you can leave this forum, bye.

Its stupid because the women I grew up with (I have Dominican and Brazilian in my family) slightly resembled Lara's figure. Which is why I never understood the discussion over her body because they looked normal to me. And still kinda do.

If someone could use these animations and a similar model with such realism, I think the TRLE world would feel extremely refreshed.
this is the best thing ever

Lance, honey, no. People getting told to go kill themselves is not the fault of the Developers

Can you provide proof? Because these are serious claims...

plenty of it on tumblr from 2016-2018. one or two posts here as well but the fact of the matter is that tomb raider fans are being told they dont deserve to live and they're not worthy as a human being b/c they like reboot lara

Why don't we, as the TR community, see each and every era as a different color shape in a rainbow, show love and respect to one another, and learn to co-exist in harmony. TRF is a beautiful place and I got to enjoy my stay here so far even though I am new, it could be so much better tho .

For example, EM just tweeted a *meme* like post related to Deus Ex, no actual meaningful post based on it yet, and within two hours it reached almost 500 likes and comments everywhere. I dunno, it saddened me to see it, not because of the fact that I do not enjoy that game or its story, but I thought to myself, yo if this was Tomb Raider related content these comments would be all about defending one Lara or harassing the other one and all, which would probably happen

It is understandable people may choose one version of the game over the other, but always remember that you yourself wouldn't enjoy it if someone just came to you and started talking to **your version of Lara** in a negative or rude manner that you wouldn't accept, so let's not do it

that's a really sweet post but no one on this fandom seems to want to be nice to each other
