Way to go from impressively devoting your entire time to hate on and bash a game you haven't played and hope for it to flop to doing the exact same thing to a game that's a year away with nothing revealed from it other than a story trailer

CD were indeed extremely stupid with their technology "excuse" trying to be nice . Honestly , they should've been downright toxic and nasty like their fanbase and blatantly say : "We don't want to add the dual pistols , choke on it and stay pressed" .

We already got stuff like the Bikini comment.

I'd also argue the games themselves count.

Straight up, I would have preferred a response like this instead of what they gave us. It would have been nice to have complete transparency and honesty instead of practically beating around the bush like they always do.

From what I've heard from people who got their hands on the game behind closed doors, every avenger character's gameplay sounds alright...except Black Widow. Not only she's lacking in the visual aspect, she's also lacking in gameplay. Yikes... Maybe that's why Hawkeye is nowhere to be seen because those two don't have special powers like the others they can get creative with. Unless they went with the 'safe' route again and not take risk in making crazy abilities. Idk, I don't trust CD to respect the source material after TR. Plus, they even said "The game was THEIR take on the franchise." which rang a familiar tone.

I see the derpy and jerky fast movements is back as per usual from CD's games. It seems to be a thing for that dev ever since Legend and gotten worse in Underworld. Why is it so hard for them to animate proper movements at a normal speed? They got butt loads of profit from the reboot trilogy and still use outdated stuff. Something's smells.

Are you seriously equating a comment an EM employee made about a fictional bunch of pixels to what people on the forums spew about the devs who're actual human beings 24/7 ?

And a whole lot of other stuff too... They have been condescending so many times. Remember during the Rise's exclusivity deal when they told PS4 users they could go play the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition when they specifically asked about Rise. It's like they didn't give af about anything, just their money.

Good point. The games themselves count.

Me too. I'd take it any day over the obvious crap they keep feeding us. They have become completely untrustworthy. Well, they have been like that for a while now.

Iím pretty sure Brian actually did.

I remember when they were promoting Rise, Meagan did the whole podcast thing didnít she, an Iím pretty positive Brian got asked about the duels returning after the ending we had with TRí13 an he said no theyíre not returning. Lara wielding the duels at the end of Tomb Raider was fan service only.

Iíll see if I can find it.

And the same for SOTTR. They’ve openly said the duals, shorts, and backflips wasn’t the direction they were heading with the game

Exactly.

Iíve done some research and there are loads of podcasts that Meagan did during the promotion of Rise so I wonít be able to find the exact one, unless I scroll through hours worth of content to find one quote but Iím 95% sure thatís what Brian said.

I'm sick of their lies. The problem wasn't the technology, but them not wanting to it for some stupid reason. It looks like they used the Legend engine for Black Widow, just an upgraded version of it. They just switched out Lara for Black Widow.

Also, the game actually looks so underwhelming. There is just so many things with it that just doesn't look right.
Imagine how tired we are. Imagine how tired we are of this, and by "we" I mean the rest of the world.
