all I said was “riiiiight...” and the only reason I said it is because you responded to so aggressively defensive towards a joke.

You’re not even only doing it to me. It’s obvious that @cephasjames was also just being playful yet you’re responding very apprehensively towards him too.

I’m kinda shocked tbh lol

Fact of the matter is people won't accept reboots formula when it is so far removed from what Tomb Raider offered. If Sqeenix actually decided to pump out a few Tomb Raider games along side reboot then the reaction to reboot wouldn't be as it is and has always been now.

I've said it before, but if they made a Tomb Raider game with the full Tomb Raider experience there would be no reason for me to complain. And I wouldn't, but for me I'm just so tired of the reboot formula and waiting for the impossible at this point.
So the formula of exploring ancient spaces, solving puzzles, finding items, fighting animals and baddies, scaling the environments, crawling through tight spaces, gaining new gear to go back to old spaces to progress, ect... are they not present in both games?

They literally follow the same formula, one just has a larger emphasis on storytelling and bigger set pieces to help evolve the way the player interacts with the environments and character, which is acceptable in today’s standards of gaming mechanics.

Yeah......no it doesn't, but I'm not going to get into it. Been way too much drama over it already.

Believe whatever makes you the most comfortable I guess......¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I mean... it does. I’m comfortable with seeing the presence of the classic formula there, especially in Shadow.

yeah, right...and I'm the queen of England. smh

you are mostly rude to almost everyone; if not, then you belittle others because...reasons. After that, you play the 'joke' card. Okay.
But hey, keep this attitude up, you weren't banned for months already.

Staying on topic:

Is there any biography (besides Lara and Jonah) for SoTR?

Not true at all. I do think mandylane posts way too much nonsense. Things that are next to pointless and almost impossible to respond to. Hence why I responded to it with “Okay.” initially. That part wasn’t a joke at all, and wasn’t what I was referring to when I said I was joking.

The joke part was “I feel like you’re just them on another account lol”.

Me ending something with “lol” is usually a pretty good indicator that I’m kidding-at least I thought so. I’m not rude to anyone. Being rude is subjective. If you find someone responding to “my mother loves Shadow of the Tomb Raider!” with “Okay.” to be rude, then that’s entirely up to you. I can’t control or anticipate what you personally will and won’t find rude. If someone responded to something I said with “Okay” I honestly wouldn’t care at all.

This is a forum. A place where you go to discuss things. I agree personal insults shouldn’t be used, but you can’t say whether or not someone has an attitude on here because this is all text based. You could be inferring something I’ve written in a way I never intended for it to be read.

You keep bringing up the fact that “I was banned months” and etc.

You realize people can change right...? And I’m barely ever rude. I just don’t have the emotional sensitivity of a towelette. Especially not to the point where someone saying “Okay.” to me would make me so upset and unstable that I’d respond back with an essay and a selfie.
