Good vid. I like her new format. She should do more voice over commentaries like this in regards to TR.

She's also right: TR does need another reboot, in the right direction hopefully. The franchise has been dormant for so long, they will need to give it a soft or hard reboot just so it garners some attention amongst gamers.

I'm worried though that Crystal won't admit to this. I don't think they'll want to reboot again because they're so proud (?) of the past one that led us nowhere. If the next game flops, they'll have to reboot again. But, before it comes to that, hopefully someone intelligent on the team will realize that a reboot and reinvention is the only way forward.

The channel is literally female Quartering. And it owes a big part of it's start up success to Jeremy's fanbase.

I'm not too familiar with him. What's wrong with the Quartering?

You're really trying to pretend you don't know Melonie Mac? You disappoint.

I disagree with many of her points. While I loved the survivor trilogy, it was obvious the devs had done everything with the gameplay formula that they could and players were looking for changes and innovation. I do believe that's their next step. Going with Survivor game 4 might have the effect of people thinking it's still part of the origin, so they're obviously trying to avoid that. I'm willing to give the unification a chance. It allows them to jump ahead a few years, putting Lara in a position of veteran adventurer again, which is where she was in the Core era.

I think it needs a refresh and I also think the longer the gap is till the next game, the fresher and more different it needs to be. A jump in age could help with that.

But I'm not averse at having a full reboot either, although I do think they need to be careful with that, it's risky. Only so many major reboots you can do in a span of time.

Being Gay when I was a Tween/Teen (well I discovered this show as a kid) was so different than today. I remember sometimes staying up until maybe 10PM and I would randomly come across the intro while scrambling through channel on late night TV. But I was too tired to watch the show in its entirety. I expect more TR references. LC is a gay icon.


Have you ever seen this?

Just Lara chilling at a gay bar. Love how she's an icon for just being herself and not for the sake of being lesbian (which is what fans want to force these days)

Yeah I'm watching the USA version. I want to watch the UK version too!



not sure about this reboot one, though...

It's a great show. I like both the British and American versions, although the American just has more story development since it's longer. Worst intro ever though.

I have not seen this, but it's cute lol. Lara looks so pretty. I wonder if that's one of the official models. Looks like it.

Oh god, there's a QAF reboot happening? Please no. Why does everything have to be rebooted?

Last summer I watched Looking for the first time. That was alright. Not a reboot though thankfully. Two of the characters were video game designers. No LC references though from what I remember.

I just googled some images of it and... ho boy, I guess I've really been out of the loop.

I may just watch it though for the lulz and Samantha/Kim Cattrall.

Not being gay my reason for playing Tomb Raider is basically due to it being a very good video game.
