What is it with TRF and Britney is it a requirement of signing up that you have to be obessed with her or something?

You see these characters interact or talk about each other, and it felt more real. The game is also criticized for its plot format. I honestly enjoyed the short but sweet sections. Each felt complete and satisfying to me.

This is true. In a way it's a shame Chronicles came at a time of maximum audience and developer fatigue because it arguably showed Lara at her most developed socially.

Well, you're here so you answered your own question.

Show me another artist that has an album called 'oops I did it again' that I can use in the context of my post and I'd have used it. It was fitting and came to mind.It's got nothing to do with being 'obsessed'.

Yes because if you don't love Britney...



Also I agree on Lara's character development for the game, it was great, Classic Lara at her best and voiced by the wonderful Jonell. I love the self-contained adventures too.

However TR5 does use floating points instead of integers for 3D coordinates, so it results in a smoother feeling (points don't snap to the closest full number).

Here's a comparison video:

TR4 vs TR5: Integers vs Floating points

You can see how Lara moves smoothly in TR5, but in TR4 it's more jerky. You can even see her butt "going in and out" as she breathes.
This also applied to cameras and everything that has coordinates.
Intresting, I never noticed that.

This didn't age well. Obsession is a pretty common thing here.

Same. I enjoy her older classics on the radio now and then but otherwise I don't really like her work that much. Way too pop'ish and generic.

Also the whole sexual theme and 'innocent girl went naughty' just doesn't cut it anymore. Not to mention her weird behavior the last decade or so.
It's obvious that the peak of her carrière is long gone. At least she still has a strong fanbase supporting her.

Anyway, this is off topic and we have a thread dedicated to her here: https://www.tombraiderforums.com/sho...d.php?t=112034 should we continue this discussion.
