Shadow of the Tomb Raider
« on: March 20, 2018, 10:33:48 AM »
September 14th is the release day. 

Teaser trailer is out and available at www.tombraider.com.  It is probably everywhere now.  There is also a puzzle to be done at the main site.  It was an annoying puzzle but there is going to be a puzzle a week I think until there is some other reveal.

Personally I can't wait as I love the rebooted series.  I think I have heard mention that this is the last of the reboot.  No clue if true.

BTW did anyone see the movie based on the first game?  My sister saw it and said it was fun, but to check your expectations at the door.

I have not seen the movie. I'm extremely disappointed in the casting. Like, the only thing Alicia Vikander has in common with Lara Croft is brown hair and an English accent. She's a freaking waif, not an athletic tomb raider. /rant

It's a "watch it when it comes to Netflix streaming" movie for me.

The new game, on the other hand, is an easy preorder for me. I've been stoked since info about it started leaking.

I've still not played the second, despite really liking the first

The second one is really good and if you liked the first I have difficulty imagining that you won't enjoy the second one.

That said I think the first is a much better game.  To me it comes down to a very visceral feel that the game has.  The story is much better than the second and makes for a better game.

I imagine the the third is going to be more similar to the second one than the first, and I am still really looking forward to playing the game.

Yeah I imagine I'm going to love it, but my backlog is just so crazy right now I'm just going to wait until I can pick it up crazy cheap!

Second puzzle is out.  Basically the same as the first puzzle but more choices and rings.  Which in theory makes it more difficult but if you think it through it is substantially easier than the first puzzle.
