It was such a fun game! It had an awesome soundtrack.
I want this game on backwards compatibility SO BAD!

Would definitely be happy with a similar acrobatic combat mechanic in future Tomb Raider games, but without the slow motion. I generally don't like slow motion in games, but sometimes it can work if it is applied to a game where the character has special powers or something. Perhaps in one single game if Lara gets an artifact similar to the sands of time, that could be a fun exception.

I dont know if WET would be the best approach since the stylish combat and all would probably force the game into a similar type of platforming...and im not sure that is what would work for Tomb Raider.

But yeah, it would look really cool...not neccessary in the reboot universe i think, that is more grounded.
So the weight behind max paynes gunfights would fit a bit better i think...but more WET would help us all so very much. XD
WET deserves to be never forgotten. I'd love a sequel to be honest. I think you could integrate parts of WET's combat system, however the games would have to be less realistic and a bit more stylized for it to work.

This.

I've said it tons of times before. The bears in Rise are perfect.

Tomb Raider:

But starring not Lara Croft.

I wouldn't mind that

Flamethrower guys in TR2.

I like how they're one of the few enemies that set Lara on fire, making you quickly head for the nearest body of water.

The fact they were only a quite easy single boss in Rise was disappointing.

What's your favorite non-boss enemy?
Bears in ROTTR, and I like fighting Trinity soldiers. I just wish they wouldn't be on a pre determined path, and did different rounds each time. It would be more enticing

------

Previous questions of the day:
Jun 9 '19 - "Who's played Tomb Raider II recently?"

I didn't. It's the TR game I like the least and just can't get the appeal.

Jun 12 '19 - "Do you think one of Lara's hobbies is gun collecting?"

Nah. She loves her signature weapons just fine. Anything else is an extra, not something she hunts for.

Jun 14 '19 - "What's everyone's favorite level of the classics?"

I don't know everyone's, but mine it's probably Jungle for how many times I've played it and how nostalgic it is

Jun 17 '19 - "Favorite of Lara's outfits?"

I love TRU's outfit. I love SOTTR Adventurer, and tactical ones as well.

Jul 2 '19 - "What sort of locales does everyone like most in Tomb Raider?"

I'd guess jungles and old temples?

Jul 5 '19 - "What's your favorite weapon of the series, not counting the classic Dual Pistols?"

Easy - Bow, over anything else

Jul 7 '19 - "Favorite villain in the franchise?"

Queen Natla from LAU. She is tímeless, twisted, diabolic. I adore her, and Grey DeLisle did a wonderful job playing her

Jul 10 '19 - "What's your most replayed Tomb Raider game?"

Probably Tomb Raider Anniversary

Jun 11 '19 - "What's your most memorable moment of the series?"

I honestly don't know. In reboot, the first time Lara reaches the tower was something really special and amazing the first time I've played it.
Lara "dying" in TR4 was memorable too. AoD when she looks at her bloody hands. "Where is my mother" in Legend. "Rest in Piece, mother" after shooting her in Underworld. Lara snapping at Oil refinery with the "Don't try me" and everything else that followed.

Jun 13 '19 - "Do you feel that the Save Crystals of Tomb Raider I and III enriched the games, or made them needlessly difficult--and why?"

Needlessly difficult. It's fake difficulty to me, plus it doesn't work that way on PC, thank god

Jun 15 '19 - "Do you feel like Underworld was a proper conclusion to Legend and Anniversary--and why?"

Nope. It was so underwhelming, but they set themselves to it with her mom being "alive". Plus the lack of boss fights. The game was mostly amazing, but the ending, and lack of bosses took a toll

Jun 16 '19 - "Do you feel that the platforming and climbing systems of the Survivor Trilogy were adequate for Tomb Raider--and why?"

Yes. They did their job. They could have been better for sure (in terms to animation, and maybe freedoom like Seth exemplified in one of his posts), but overall I'm happy. It has lots of possibilities. It has normal climbing. Edge hop, side-hop. Grappel. Rappelling. Cragged walls. Wire sliding and so on. Maybe they could add a bit of parkour-like like they did with Underworld? IDK

Jun 17 '19 - (From Melonie Mac) "Favorite cutscene in Tomb Raider history?"

Campire scene with Lara and Jonah in SOTTR, hands down. Not a single game has made me teary and caused an ache in my chest like that scene. And the final one when she says goodbye to her parents and her past.


Jun 22 '19 - "When did you first play Tomb Raider: Anniversary?"

When it leaked before release xD
