Well Hello, Ms. Croft.
« on: December 10, 2010, 07:07:45 PM »


Sorry, if it's a wee bit big but. I needed the detail.

Now for those of you who cannot recognize her or those who do not subscribe to Game Informer magazine. That is Lara Croft.

I've never liked the Tomb Raider series, I found it too superficial and over-stimulating with a rather one-dimensional protagonist. However, from that picture alone I want to play this game. It's beautiful, not because she looks like she walked out of the wrong end of a fight but because it's real.

Shocked?

For all that detail, you think they wouldn't have resorted to trans-mapped hair.

I think the direction they're going in could revive the series. I'm looking forward to the new Lara.

I thought the way they did the last two series storywise... it was definitely better than some of the ones after the orginal one.

I have not idea what that means, but I feel obligated to tell you that I scanned that in from said Game Informer. It was my first time ever using a scanner and mine not be so great. Now that I've posted it and it's bigger it looks a little too over-exposed and grainy...

There's not doppelganger in this one because this game is going to be set when Lara is twenty-one and fresh out of college. So any copycat would not exist, Sabby.

Are they keeping to the story the way it's been in the last two? She's looking for her mother? I liked that rewrite of the backstory quite a bit.

No idea. The article didn't go into that much of it. The due date is still TBA. However, it does take place somewhere around Japan or some speck of Pacific Island. They're also apparently aiming for the M rating. The G.I. guys said when they played their demo that in one place Lara could get stabbed in the chest and die, and in another crushed first on the legs and then head by boulders.

It's a complete revamp, I read. She get's out of college, follows some professor on a boat, which crashes on a Japanese island, and she has to survive by using camp sites in sandbox environment and creating simple weapons like spears and bows, since guns are rarer.

Dunno if there's guna be any magic.

I'm interested to, but...

Well, it's hard to beat fighting a winged Atlantean immortal with Thor's hammer on the top of a crumbling alien built doomsday machine under Antartica while your on and off enemy and friend Pyro-Witch Goth holds back tides of frozen undead Vikings with fire powers.

Apparently, That picture?..Actual person.

The woman doing the voice for Lara in the new game? Yeah. Her body and face are being captured real time for the game, along with her voice.

...Seems like they are pulling out all the stops on this one.

Well they kind of need to. Despite the stable last few releases of Tomb Raider from all accounts I've read they're more like a bandage for the wound instead of a cure. If they want to keep Lara around they're going to have to hit the modern gaming market harder than they have been.
