Tomb Raider - Reborn Trailer


Sledgstone

Tomb Raider has been rebooted! Lara Croft is now a complete bad ass. With what appears to be the God of War engine powering the game, Tomb Raider has never looked better.

Actually she's less of a badass and more of a frail woman that grows toughness through a series of rough trials. I've been keeping an eye on this game and it looks very promising. I can tell from the climbing gameplay that its definitely running the GoW engine. i've been wondering when another 3rd person action game would take advantage of the best engine on the market for the genre. I've heard there are some pretty brutal death sequences when you mess up and die.

That is a very in depth review. After watching the trailer again I can see how she definitely seems like a frail woman out of place. After reading that review, I'm actually more interested in playing this game. Wow.. that is a horrible death scene, I don't think Kratos has even had it that bad. O_O

 

There is only one other game that has used the God of War engine as far as I know. I've only played the demo of it though, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.

I got this game over the weekend. I've only had the chance to play it for a little over an hour and all I can say is "Wow!" this game is impressive. Its all the little details that I'm noticing and every scene is its own scene. Like if you are walking through some area near a wall, Lara is moving her hand along it for balance.. when you hear some wolves, she hears them too and it looking in the direction she heard them.. when she is wounded, she looks visibly wounded and moves like it hurts. Every scene seems to be unique. When there are enemies, she is instinctively ducking behind some walls while I'm near them. Every grunt, moan, jump, etc.. is nothing like any other game I have played. Like if I'm playing God of War, Kratos will endlessly attack enemies, do the same grunting jump attack, etc. But when Lara makes a jump you feel her struggle to just barely make it. You get a bit more feel from the game and its something that is lacking in a lot of games. btw, yes.. if you miss a button pushing moment in a critical scene, some of these deaths can be quite brutal. In the heat of running under some boulders and hitting the wrong button.. holy crap. If anything it makes you want to improve your game play so you don't have to put her through something like that again. I can only assume she'd have been mauled horribly by wolves in one particular scene, but thankfully my bow and arrow skills prevented me from seeing it.

      Ordered some Corsair Void Pro headphones for Prime Day. I've been putting off a new headset for PC for way too long. I have my cord duct taped and wires are coming out of the ear pieces. Its hard to give this headset up because its lasted me 15-16 years. Its just some cheap ass standard Microsoft headphones i bought at target years and years ago. The ear cushions look like cloth because the fake leather coating all fell off or deteriorated. Even with all the wires falling apart, it still works without a hitch. I don't really need turtles for PC, but the Corsair's were on a pretty decent discount, so I went with it.

      So I finished watching the first season of My Hero Academia tonight and you were right DX I absolutely love the show. I think most of that has to do with my absolute adoration for All Might but I could be wrong (but I'm sure I'm not, you can't hate the man he's just fucking perfect).
      Gotta say for a shounen series it certainly has a lot going for it. Great humor, awesome character development and characters , a good story (I only say good for now as it's only S1 that I've finished, I hear it gets a lot better), and a pretty kick ass soundtrack. Not going to say I don't have any problems with the show (it suffers from some of the things I hate about shounen series) but those are greatly overshadowed by everything I said before.
      I'm honestly looking forward to starting S2 tomorrow (thank god I'm on vacation) and hopefully starting S3 before I go back to work (if I don't get lost in the myriad of other things I have to do this week).

      I completed my 6th world completion on Guild Wars 2. It will probably be my last. Mounts definitely made this one much easier to complete, but it still wasn't much fun. My first two runs were done the old school way with WvW map requirements. My third, forth, and fifth were done post HoT with gliding, and elite specs providing me with more mobility and power. This last one took less than half the time, but the hearts are so tedious, it's too much. The Beetle is cool for zipping around the map and unfogging everything. You may pick up a few WP and POI along the way, but if you were to move from heart to heart, half the time you'd just get your boost meter full and you'd be at your destination already. The raptor is still the best for these scenarios. The best thing the Beetle is for is getting to an event fast before it completes. Also the skimmer made maps dominated by lakes and ocean so much faster. With 10 gifts of Exploration, I doubt I'll ever grind out the Gift of Mastery track 10 times to go with it. I kind of wish I would have bought more than I did before that change occurred.

      My router shat out on me today and screwed me for over an hour as I thought it was my internet. My power went out and after it came back on my router started freaking out and will only stay connected for 5 seconds at a time and then go down again for 4-5 minutes. I hooked up my old back up router in the meantime. Now I have to call up the support line tomorrow and see if Tenda will honor their warranty. I ordered a TP-Link router off amazon a little while ago for a cheap $59 on sale. It seems decent enough and I've never had any issues with TP-Link before.
