  • Hitcher changed the title to New Tomb Raider (UE5)

The nicest thing I can say is that they all look great.

 

Aside from that I found Rhianna Pratchett’s Lara to be the most unlikeable character i think I’ve ever played in a game, and that’s not a good thing for such a story focussed series.

The first one was incredibly spiteful in how it went about murdering poor Lara during QTEs that you failed. After I got over that it was great fun.

 

I read something about Hayley Atwell being the new voice of her?

Great, great, shite


This and 2013 Lara is no fun at all. Part of what made the original Crystal Dynamics games enjoyable was that Keeley Hawes Lara was fun to spend time with and seemed to be enjoying herself in the game.

Alternatively, if you haven't played the remake of the first game (Anniversary), try that. It's a bit rough around the edges but I played it recently and it was enormously refreshing old school exploratory platformer game design.

I imagine this is quite some way off since at the moment they’re supposedly trying to salvage the wreckage of Perfect Dark after the studio created to make it imploded.

Pointless announcement. Nothing to say so shut th fuck up until you've at least got something to show.

 

I think it should maybe be illegal to announce a game.more than 6 months before release and definitely before you can show a gameplay video.

Definitely felt like a politically motivated announcement - either for Square to appease Epic somehow, for Square Western branch or Crystal Dynamics to get a project past the point of no return/pullback, to make a stock market move, to start a dev hiring wave, who knows.  None are the right reason of course.

I think an announcement now and footage during one of the pressumed conferences over "e3 time"  would be fine.

 

I thought shadow was fine, it tried replicating Uncharted to some extent which was different but the game had way too many stealth sections for my liking. Also, i know this isnt specifically a tomb raider issue but it seemed silly to be doing side quests when it felt such a like such a end of the world thing happening in the story.

 

I returned to the 2013 tomb raider recently, i've played it a couple times before but for some reason i just didn't enjoy it as much. Felt very old in a way gameplay wise and surprisingly easy/short to what i remember it being (granted i had played it twice before) .

What were the last few like? I don't think I've played a modern one.


An awful lot like Uncharted.

 

I loved all three (the 2013 reboot being the highlight) but they are very much channelling Drake without the lead characters charm.

I loved the three games from the reboot and, contrary to popular opinion, enjoyed them more with each one. I'm currently about 3/4 through Shadow. I do have criticism for the series as a whole and the third game in particular, but I think it's negligible. The games look gorgeous and are so detailed and I could run around in the setting for the third game forever.

I am very excited about this announcement because I already found myself wondering whether there will be any new Tomb Raider in the foreseeable future, and what to do once I'm done with Shadow. (I still need to play the Uncharted series so they will do well to tide me over until whenever this gets released, if it does).

A third reboot, if we discount AoD. 
 

WHICH WE DO!

 

(not narratively, it’s still a sequel to TLR, I meant more… changing the game mechanics, from a world measured in “blocks”)

 

Legend and underworld were a reboot.

 

TR, RotTR, and SotTR were a reboot.

 

Now this.

 

previously we got a backstory for her twin-pistols. Now I want to know how she got a backpack with almost unlimited storage.

Really happy to see them back on what they're good at instead of being forced into GaaS shite

 

I like your optimism.
