No, not really. The archery does not have the solid feel that games like Elder Scrolls. It is more pull and hear the arrow go 'ting,' if that makes sense. The game world is not open world but hubs that load the area in. Nothing as good as Beth games.

Where the game does excel is just that liberating feeling of just being lost in the ancient world with huge walls and waterfalls, the usual Tomb Raiding stuff. The ice caverns and detail on the walls really makes you feel that you are miles inside a mountain rather than just using a load cell like Bethesda.

So some parts are better but most is miles behind Beth.

I would give it 8.5 out of ten, it is very good. Just a few too many cut scenes and set piece moments.

I am hoping for more open Tombs in the next one. These ones are too small. We need some huge 5 level thing for the game to be 'epic.'

It is absolutely the best character graphics I've ever seen in any game! Is the game as good as it looks substance and gameplay-wise?

The reason they can do it is that there is zero customisation of the player character, so they only need to provide one high-res, high-detail model - Lara. All the rest is lower-detail, because it's transient, and not the focus of attention. Not much lower, but enough is saved by only having one focal character to pay for the rest.

They do have to make several versions of her in different outfits, but only one will ever be on-screen, so that's a development team consideration, not an engine one.

If I had her to play wirh, I could see me not caring about adventure as much as parading her around in front of the camera in different settings and outfits for screenshots! laugh.gif

The first shot is a capture from one of the early video cut scenes so that is why it looks so nice. We just sit back during that part and stare in amazement.

The other shots are pretty close to what the game is like.

The one I showed yesterday, this one, is straight from the in-game. The wall behind you closes the camera in and shows that level of detail.

That looks outstanding! But those look like Falmer ahead! I hope Lara packed a Deadric Sword to deal with them!

The portrayal of Lara has changed quite a bit over the years, and finally swung into favor of being reasonable, as this article points out. Though I am sure once it is out on PC the modding community will get cranking on those Nudie mods!
Winter Wolf
Thanks for that article, SubRosa. Yes, Lara is so different now when compared to those early days. She just feels so cool, that is the only way to describe it. In one scene the male antagonist is trying to put pressure on her and the way that she outwits him is one of the most clever ways I have ever seen in a computer game.

She thinks on her feet now and that shows how the industry itself has grown up.

*Is jealous*

My luck tends to be either bad, or quirky and ineffective. To be honest, I don't know why I even bother buying lottery tickets, not that I do it often, only when the jackpot gets over a certain amount.

I guess if I were in the Star Wars universe I'd be a Correlian: No regard whatsoever for the odds laugh.gif

Im not interested in playing a game in that way though I have to admit, at the time I was young enough to think it was a bit interesting.. laugh.gif

It's not a scary story, but it gets pretty dark.

The segment I wrote was a flashback for the main character. He saw his soon-to-be-fiance cheating on him, learnt that she is in fact being mentally manipulated and dominated by one of her friends(who was right there on the bed beside her, and the guy is the one she brought to the party). He literally watches as the friend destroys his lover's mind right in front of him.

*shudders*

Oh oh, is it a scary story you are writing for NaNo?


It's not a scary story, but it gets pretty dark.

The segment I wrote was a flashback for the main character. He saw his soon-to-be-fiance cheating on him, learnt that she is in fact being mentally manipulated and dominated by one of her friends(who was right there on the bed beside her, and the guy is the one she brought to the party). He literally watches as the friend destroys his lover's mind right in front of him.

*shudders*

I wouldn't know, I've never watched it sad.gif

Edit: after reading about her on wikipedia, I think my character's worse.

But this woman is abominable. She manipulated her friends, used magic to destroy their minds, and runs a high-class brothel where she whores them out, along with anyone else she can sink her claws into. She's basically untouchable, and she makes money hand over fist through various nefarious tactics, like burning incense with narcotic properties throughout the establishment.

Fortunately, she only pops up in a single part. But that's more than enough.

That said, my main characters are going to get up to some pretty dark business too, but at least theirs is justifiable. To an extent.

I've not written as much as I would've liked to today, but I just can't face writing anything else right now. Writing that flashback from the main characters perspective was just exhausting. And the bit that followed wasn't much easier.

Sounds like you have written a very deep plot!

The blasted thing keeps growing. It started out as such a simple concept: Instead of a group of heroes out to save the world from the big bad evil, it was a group of broken, bitter people out for cold, bloody vengeance on their attackers. But as each character turned up, it got more complex. Like that evil woman, who's only there because of Amaril's backstory.

It's reached the point where I know the beginning, the end, and the major points in between, but I can't trace the exact route because the characters keep meandering and changing it.

Much as I love that fact, it does make it hard to keep track of it. At this point much of what I've got written down regarding the plot is out of date. laugh.gif


And I'm really wishing I hadn't started a fanfic before NaNoWriMo came around. sad.gif

The portrayal of Lara has changed quite a bit over the years, and finally swung into favor of being reasonable, as this article points out. Though I am sure once it is out on PC the modding community will get cranking on those Nudie mods!



I got a kick out of how the writer said "Thats a pretty significant development," when talking about how they shrank her boobs, laugh.gif

But I thought she looked stunning in that screenshot. They said she wasn't eye candy anymore; imho she is more than ever. She looked amazing.

I know that I should not read LA Times but I came across this Fallout 4 review.

Review

The writer has no idea what it takes to play a Bethesda game, let alone a Fallout game. Building a character and hunting in the ruins where death is just a moment away was a concept that went right over his head.

Half way through he wishes that he was back playing Rise of the Tomb Raider.

I can understand what he means, sort of, as the TR game is so user friendly and just requires you to kick back and enjoy. Fallout requires patience and has a leaning curve for those who are new to the series.

And, mALX, read the TR review. Your girl is kicking male butt in the story.

TR Story

And this cut scene is really good.

That review is a perfect example of why some people just shouldn't be allowed to play RPGs, if you ask me.

I found the review useful. Especially this line: "Rise of the Tomb Raider," which I started, played and completed during my week with "Fallout 4.", which convinced me that I don't want RotTR.

I have to agree with Thorney on this. The guy probably didn't realize you could turn down the difficulty level, lol.

That line struck me too; because if I had a game I could start and complete in such a short time, I don't see any long term enjoyment coming from that.

So, today's been kind of a bad news/good news kind of day.

Bad news: I'm way behind on NaNoWriMo

Good news: Between four 30 minute writing sessions, I managed to rack up a little over 3,500 words.

...

Actually, think that's my only good news of today, and it's kind of outnumbered.

*shrugs*

That just sets the bar lower for tomorrow to be an improvement biggrin.gif

Callidus Thorn
Heh, thanks.

I just wish I had a vague idea of how long it's going to be. 15,000 words in and I'm not even halfway through the first part of the story. ohmy.gif

Yeah, but with NaNo, the word count is the only criteria. The story doesn't have to be finished, or even edited; just written. So don't worry what part isn't written yet - just look at it as an accomplishment that you have come so far and whooped the H out of that darned writer's block so well! laugh.gif

It's hard for me not to get worked up over it. This started out as something I threw together in a couple of days for NaNoWriMo last year, but it's taken on a life of its own since then.

On another note, weary sighs today. Barely got any sleep the night before last, woke up tired this morning. Way too tired to write. Wanted to fire up a game of Fallout: New Vegas, but I haven't got any saves. No idea what happened to them. *Sighs wearily*

Oh well, I was leaning towards energy weapons again anyway...

Well, I think the important thing is that you have tapped into that creative place inside you; and had a glimpse of what it is capable of when you have just scratched its surface. Imagine what you can create if you really dig deep inside for the mother lode.

Your writing is amazingly exciting and creative. I love characters that are in depth, and yours sound Awesome!

Having fun reading some bashing of the Hobbit films on Reddit. Apparently they've found a video of Peter Jackson admitting that he didn't know what he was doing and didn't have the prep time needed.

The discussion gets bonus points for bashing George Lucas and the prequels, and Abrams and his Star Trek films. laugh.gif

Edit: Gods, just saw a clip from one of the films, some character named Alfrid dying in the extended edition.
