Shadow of the Tomb Raider - Ms Croft if you're nasty


#2

Ooh, a climatic finale. I guess she is British, it’s only reasonable to talk about the weather.


#3

It would be kind of awesome if the bad guys’ plot involved weather manipulation or something.


#4

Lara Croft saves the world, via climate change? :)


#5

Ozone Raider


#6

Oh man yeah! And maybe we could get Sean Connery in a bear suit!

“From now on, you will buy your weather from me.”


#7

I just hope the story and setting are better than they were in Rise of the Tomb Raider.


#8

Where do I pre-order?


#9

Story and setting weren’t the problem in Rise, it was the way they turned it into a crazy ass full on 24/7 combat simulation, and forgot to make it about the exploration.


#10

The end of the beginning?


#11

If the tweet image in the OP is to be believed, you can pre-order on April 27, 2018, when they announce the pre-order incentives and SKUs.

The best comment I have about the story and “character development” (for lack of a better description of whatever it is that the game has in place of what that expression actually refers to) in Rise is that I was facepalming so much and so hard through most of it that I got a concussion and don’t remember 80% of it.

Thumbs up, I guess? ;)


#13

Why not both?


#14

I thought the gameplay in Rise was terrific. Especially in the exploration, it was a vast improvement over the previous game. The story is a terrible Last Crusade retread, but then I didn’t think the writing in the first game amounted to much either.


#15

The second game really lacked feels from the climbing radio tower in the the first game. A real high point imho.


#16

I see what you did there.


#17

Looks like South America.


#18

That’s really strange since the second game had more tomb exploration than the prior one, though the combat was about the same.


#19

I played and enjoyed the last two quite a bit, so I’m all in for this one.


#20

Yeah, I really liked Rise, this reminds me I need to play through the DLC before the next one drops.


#21

I lost steam in Rise and never finished it. Really disliked the story and Lara as a character in it. I had liked the first reboot game quite a bit too. Not sure what that means for me and this third game.
