Is £20 worth it for Rise of the Tomb Raider? I want to take those 4K butt shots.
it's pretty much the same mechanics wise, but more refined. Felt like there was more emphasis on exploration and there's more tombs (although they are still optional) and the levels are a lot less linear. The combat isn't as annoying either because there's a lot less of those waves following waves types of encounters.
It's not a huge step up, but it's an improvement.
The problem is that it's too easy. It reminds me of AssCreed, even though there's a cool bunch of areas you can explore, everything is marked on your map and theres tons of audio and visual clues to let you know if you are near something important. So sometimes, exploration can feel like a checklist rather than something that you do at your own pace.
Beyond that, it's a fine adventure game. I have given up hope on a game like the classic TR's, and apart from Uncharted which is a Sony exclusive there is nothing quite like this.
It's alright even if the story is pretty dumb
indigenous Siberian tribe speaks perfect English, come on. Even Uncharted had the good sense to make indigenous people speak their own native languages.
They have the PC version for $40 CAD on some semi-sketchy CD key site, should I take the risk?
Still waiting for this Lara to grow up into the real Lara.
The one that can be humorous and charming, the one that can display emotion outside of depression or anger.
Also, why is new Lara so dumb? She went on a trip into the Siberian mountains, knowing an organization was after her and not only did she not bring any sort of gun, she didn't even bring a KNIFE with her. She's also too stupid to pick the enemy's ARs and shotguns without them being literally handed to her in a cutscene.
I basically just bought Arkham Knight to downsample 4k butt screenshots. Totally worth it!
The ass physics in this alone are worth the purchase.
Yeah those ones did a great job of rebooting.
That's the whole point of a reboot anyways, recreate the old character and give them new scenarios to play in.
This new reboot destroyed the old character because it was "sexist and problematic" and completely destroyed the gameplay, no more physics puzzles no more acrobatics, they focused on generic third person shooter, kill millions of badguys and pretend you are an antropologist survivor. It's not tomb raider in any regard except they called her lara croft
That's a soft reboot, in which the bulk of the old lore and characterization is kept. New TR is a hard reboot, in which they just kept the overall concept but scrapped everything else and are starting over from scratch.
They completed excised her personality, hell they even changed her signature weapon, which I'm sure was an attempt to hop on the Hunger Games bandwagon.
I'm shocked they left her white, English, and from a rich family.
And what really pisses me off, is that I still enjoyed the last two games, they have a lot of problems and are worse than the ones before, but I still enjoyed my playthroughs. It just should've been it's own fucking IP instead of destroying an old one.
I've never heard those terms before but I think they fit very appropiratly. I think that just means I hate the what they did with the hard, and I love the soft reboot.
Underworld is the best, but the reboot is still top 3
completely agree, they should have done their own thing with a new name. People would have drawn parallels sure, I wouldn't have hated it.
I suppose that's fair, but I hate the liberal arts degree humanities/anthropologist nice girl with the new one. I liked the cheesy one liner, sexy confident lara that felt that it was a 90's over the top action movie, with supernatrual elements in a modern day world. I suppose my real hate of the 2nd reboot lara is how they pretended it was all some great anthropological find, but the real state of anthropology today is a fucking joke.
>delete all of OP's posts
>delete the thread
>mfw he probably got banned for charity
some things just aint right anymore
>tfw too busy posting in the fucking Super Mario Bros Z thread and only got to that thread right before it was canned.
>guy was giving out keys 5 minutes earlier
>mods deleted the thread
Heres a copy/paste of nvidia keys from that thread, im sure most of them have been redeemed though
>keys can still get claimed even if you're into the process of activating one
Actually like 175 keys. I counted it because I wanted to see how much would devs get from steam if we all peordered for a full price - 6123 bucks is it (after steam cut, only taken in account dollar price).
But if there is that guy that posted those keys, I'd like to thank you for the third time.
>Got to the final redeem screen after signing into Steam
>That code has been redeemed.
Mods deleted the key thread for themselves I bet.
>tfw I got one
There's a good chance I won't keep it, but still, happy I got one.
I tried getting a friend one, but no luck. We family share anyways, so no big deal.
>got GTAV and FO4 free from /v/ last year
>Now (maybe) have new Tomb Raider for free
This is why I visit /v/.
It's liking drink mud every day, and one day you drink it and it's a nice chocolate milk shake instead.
Fuck the reboot and fuck Crystal Dynamics. Everything about this reboot is godawful.
>Lara is now heavily insinuated to be a lesbian even though Lara was originally envisioned to be above everyone in terms of sexual leagues
>wears more clothing than every past game combined. Yeah, it's a small issue but don't even think to sit there and tell me that it isn't because of SJWs and Rihanna Pratchett being a massive cunt
>gameplay Lara is literally Rambo simulator while cutscene Lara is meek and sad, creating a glaring dichotomy that makes no sense and ruins immersion, narrative or otherwise
>isn't focused on puzzle solving or platforming or tombs at all, even though all three are the exact point of Tomb Raider to begin with
Oh and let's not forget
>costume DLC which just gives Lara even more layers
Any of you who are legitimately supporting this game simply because it has good ass physics or because DEM GRAPHICS needs to die in a fire.
Always pay the shield thing on G2A.
In my opinion, it's not worth saving 2 dollars, and then end up losing 20.
I've heard a few times when people don't buy with the shield, their key is invalid.
I got a key in the other thread.
Yeah, it was rad as fuck because they didn't refund the games after gifting me. Made my whole week.
>The only game I've gotten was Assassin's Creed Unity
That sucks. Still, free is free. Coulda been worse.
>if you liked the 2013 one you will like this
So basically, anyone who has shit taste will be able to enjoy the new game? Noted.
I played the 2013 game, it was fun but it isn't really anything like the originals. The platforming is designed so that laura is like magnetic where she like clings to ledges and walls, etc so there is some slack with how precise you have to be. I like both the originals and the new game, just different pieces of delicious pie.
I looked at about 15 different video reviews of RotTR and it looks like the 2013 game just in a much better environment with more of all the good stuff.
I don't think my shitty laptop can play this game, so I'll probably just pick it up during the summer sale when it may have some type of discount. If I knew I could play it for sure I would even pre-order it.
I have shitty integrated intel graphics "HD 5500", anyone have an idea if I can play it at low res with all settings on low?
I liked tomb raider reboot because I found the gameplay enjoyable and compelling. I absolutely agree with you about the dissonance between cutscene lara and gameplay lara, because you really are just the fucking embodiment of murder in that game. They clearly tried to play to the middle and go with what was established and safe, but without being exploitative, so we ended up with a fairly mediocre product. What would have been cool is if, as you keep killing more and more dudes, a subgroup of islanders starts popping up worshiping you as a "goddess of death" who is coming to free them from the mortal world filled with pain and broken tree limbs that get driven through your torso.
>tfw didn't get the game for free
Just like my life there is one dissapointment after the other.
>only 1 person on /v/ actually took advantage of the glitch like previous OP
>now he's b&'d and its all over
>I want to take those 4K butt shots.
you're better off going with the older games, then.
Nah on PC. OP is about PC version.
>have shitty integrated intel graphics "HD 5500", anyone have an idea if I can play it at low res with all settings on low?
No. You won't run it at all.
Here you guys go, one more time
aww, thanks anon. I was just barely able to run the 2013 game anyway. Oooh now that I think about it I have an old gaming laptop from asus with an ati 5870, any idea on that?
S-sorry breh, I just want to play the game...
Here's who should play lara in a movie
I'm looking forward to the new one as well. I think the generic TPS shooter of the first one really sucked ass, and I think the survival aspects and the stealth aspects are going to be enhanced more and it will lead to a better more clear narrative and gameplay.
But I still hate everything else about it. The only thing that can possibly be fixed with RISE is better gameplay, which is easy to do since the first one was super easy and generic.
>>gameplay Lara is literally Rambo simulator while cutscene Lara is meek and sad, creating a glaring dichotomy that makes no sense and ruins immersion, narrative or otherwise
I'm so happy it wasn't just me. This was a huge problem because it makes the cinemas and her character personality pointless. It wasn't just jarring, it was just "no actually laura, you're a psychopath."
>make a redesign
>I want to fuck her just as fucking much
I got the 2013 reboot with my HD 7870, but only ever played it for 2~3 hours, but holy shit is she a hot fuckdoll still.
woemn are people too ya know, how would you feel if a big muscular man thought of you as a >hot fuckdoll?
The doctor who pulled you out of your mother's pussy.
Careful what you wish for.
Real nice of that anon, just kinda sad ah didn't get a key, but das okay.
i got 0 fucking shitty life i have
shes so fucking MUH DICK
fur eels breh, she is into fitness so she already has muscles and her face even looks like lara's, all that's missing is an English accent.
b-but how can they steal our games senpai?
>Any problems that aren't mine are invalid
People have issues outside of Africa, anon. Many of them are more pressing than the fact that you didn't get your free game. One day you'll realize this.
And i don't give a shit. Just because other people have problems doesn't mean i can't have ones. I suppose you can never feel good about anything either because there will always be people having it better than you?
>mfw they wasted the potential of ripped Biel in a shitty Blade fanfic
If you are brain-dead and with no taste or self-respect, sure, great buy.
I'll get a rise to raid her tomb if ya know what I mean.
GMG has a coupon btw. I still don't recommend buying PC games on release. Probably gonna be filled with bugs and be $5 in a few months.
