    Tomb Raider Rebooted

    General Tomb Raider Synopsis

    Everyone who is part of the video game community knows who Lara Croft is. Whether it's for the nostalgic environments from the first game or simply for...boobs, people know the name Lara Croft. This game is a full on reboot. Not only rebooting the gameplay but the entire brand name and franchise. Basically the creation of this game is like trying to re-create the big bang.

    Tomb Raider Reboot 2011 Background Info

    The new game follows Lara Croft (21 years old) as she embarks on a journey with Captain Conrad Roth on the Salvage Vessel Endurance to search for lost treasures off the coast of Japan. Lara Croft is fresh from academy (I'm not fond of how the education system works in the UK) and has turned down an offer to Cambridge in search for a more hands on and eyes opening experience. Lara hopes to ear comfy spot amongst the world's leading treasure hunters. The expedition goes awry as a storm hits and the Endurance is split in half. Lara finds herself lost in a sea of darkness both literally and figuratively. Lara must now survive this extremely messed up island and through visceral combat encounters and treacherous exploration she will learn the fundamentals of surviving (except swimming apparently) the harsh environments of the lost word.

    Bullet Point Info

    - Lara's dual pistols are not in the game as far as we know however Conrad Roth is said to kill a pack of wolves with dual pistols, so she may inherit them.
    - Quick Time or Cinematic Events are back. However they are apparently more involved than in previous games.
    - Generic combat has yet to be delved into however we do know that there is no more lock on targeting, so the game will feature free aim.
    - So far the only confirmed weapons are the Bow, Sawed off Shotgun, Pistol, and Axe.
    - The Axe mentioned above can also be used for climbing. Not sure how that will work yet
    - Lara still is athletic and can climb, however she climbs more realistically. Someone compared her climbing movements to that of Uncharted.
    - No vehicles in this game
    - This game is meant to be more cinematic than previous installments
    - The game is NOT open world however there are large sprawling areas and you can explore anywhere which you can see if you are physically capable or have the proper equipment.
    - Gathering food and water will be part of the game. I assume it will be like a medipack system however instead of random health items we will also find food items.
    - Lara will need to hunt to find some food items, I assume this means killing animals and rummaging for canned food (as mentioned in the Gme Informer article)
    - Contrived Puzzles are gone, so this means no more endless switches and mechanisms in tombs. Puzzles are meant to be survival situations and problems which need to be solved. You will be given an area filled with items which have an obvious function but can be multifaceted based on their surroundings
    - There is a crafting feature
    - There is apparently some sort of skill system or experience system which allows you to upgrade Lara and her tools
    - In the beginning of the game Lara's movements may seem awkward or amateur however as she learns more she will be more capable
    - Random Buddha statues liter the island (as well as a giant megalith statue) their purpose is still unknown
    - Lara can squeeze through tighter spaces with the help of more cinematic and dramatic camera angles, Lara will push up against walls and touch them in contextual animations
    - The game is meant to be more mature and thus is rated M.
    - A lot of problems solving involves the game's realistic physics engine. Lara can light torches and if they get wet they will go out.

    *I'll add more as I find out and remember*

    Of course. I mean, facebook may not be good for everyone. The constant unnecessary connection with people, ranting about their social lives which you and I probably couldn't care less about.

    However when it comes to throwing down an e-mail address, making up some phony name, and liking the page....thus being 1 step closer to that awesome trailer....then it seems worth it, doesn't it?:D

    Kay maybe not, IDK.:/

    It's still Eidos, it's still going to suck. Their games were cool in 1998 when 3rd person games were new.

    ^Well I think we should be counting more on what the developers do, and not the publishers. Tomb Raider may have been a zombie for the past few years, however this is a leap of faith and is going to be sick. So I will take my own leap of faith and bet you that this game gets nominated for Best At Show E3 and comes close if not wins GOTY. I bet you.

    IKR? The trailer will totally be her getting her ass kicked by the game's terrain...

    Look at this CGI!

    Sorry, the incredibly detailed CGI backgrounds leave no more computing power for jiggly breast physics during the rendering of the scenes. You'll have to deal without.

    The original Tomb Raider (Sega Saturn in 1996) rates as one of the greatest games I've ever played.
    I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this.

    Any game that wastes money on expensive, full-CGI trailers is already going horribly wrong.

    How come whenever someone tells me to get ready for a "new take" on a classic character nowadays I expect to see them covered in dirt and grunge, portrayed more "realistically?" Kind of doesn't feel refreshing anymore. I think I'd be more surprised if Lara went blonde. Also, maybe I'm wrong...but didn't they "reboot" Lara already? I kinda feel like they did.

    Don't know if I enjoyed the other Tomb Raider games enough to try this one though. Can't say I played any of them for more than an hour.

    Guardian of Light was completely different. A coop, top down view, arcade take on Tomb Raider. It was actually successful too.

    Pretty renders are one thing but that is not representative of ingame visuals for sure and, lets face it, prettyness does not a good game make.

    Time will tell, interesting to know it's being made though.
