    Yeah Conan is always hilarious with his game "reviews". Tomb Raider re-BOOB-ed. :laugh:

    Thinking about pre-ordering this game.

    Since I never pre-orederd from STEAM before, I have one question : when does the pre-loading usually start? On the release date? or a couple of days before? or right after I get my game?

    On release date usually. Sometimes a few hours before the official release date. It sits in your Game library till release date when you can install it.

    12 hours is short for TR, and MP is unnecessary indeed.

    12 is short for TR? I beat the original one in 8 hours man back in 96 and that was me taking my time on a Sega Saturn.

    She's raiding this tombs to get the implants. This is a prequel after all.

    The gameplay reminds me of the uncharted series, just placed a preorder, found it 25% off at Get Games, Steam is already preloading the game, haven't played tomb raider since my PS1 days :p

    I love Uncharted too, that's why I think this game is going to rock! :rockout:

    BTW, as I mentioned, the game is up for preorder at Get Games for 25% off (Steam download), if you go to their site they have both versions discounted 15%, and you can get an extra 10% off if you use this code:

    L4R4

    Hope you guys can use the code to preorder :toast:

    Classic TR games always had painful deaths and it's a right decision to make it that way. 1) It looks more realistic and mature (unlike those idiotic ragdoll fx in Underworld/Legend with no blood at all) 2) It encourages player to play more carefully 3) And there's a lot of people who like to kill Lara and laugh at her death animations just for kicks like in good olden days. Angel of Darkness had the best Lara's death animations.

    Yep.. that's what I remembered as well.. TR was borderline gore porn back then.

    It was sorta fun head diving into the ground from a cliff, but too many details (and realism) makes it uncomfortable.

    I remember the sound when she dives onto spikes as particularly satisfying when stuck on a section

    It was always pretty harsh when you feel from a very high height and you could hear her spine and bones break on impact. Ouch. I still remember numerous times i fell of Thames Warf in London...

    Just played a good hour and a half. Pretty awesome game.

    40FPS with my 680 and everything maxed with TressFX on. I think there will be some driver optimizations released soon.

    -surprised the new GeForce beta drives don't have performance improvements for TR.

    I have about 5 or 6 hours into the game. Great game so far! Lara is now a bit more bad ass; getting the feel for killing. This game gets pretty damn tense at times. I just found my second tomb. I had to stop playing so I could go to work. grrrrrr.
