In case you guys are interested, I have put up an announcment about the Tomb Raider: Legend "First Look" DVD that is going to be bundled with Total Overdose.

The official announcment is here (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=53426):

Thanks Matt.

Q.

II. A complete play-through of the E3 demo that has the press writing so much about.

Is this a playable demo, or a movie?

Me too I vote for playable demo!

I believe that it is video footage of the E3 demo and game in action.

Its more like something that would be included in a special features section of a movie dvd, than it would be a playable demo that is included with a magazine. It goes into detail on the concepts of what they are trying to implement and why.

Hope that helps,

Thank you. But I have a question. In all the articles I've read about the game, the release date was 16th September, and now you say it's 28th September. I've checked at www.eidosinteractive.com and it says 28th September, but www.eidos.co.uk says 16th September. :confused: So what is the final release date?

I reckon 28th for US, 16th for UK & Europe.

The Us Version will most probably be the only version to get the Bonus. The UK will probably get it when you pre order from game nearer the time of release :(

I guess we will find out next week. Btw, Matt, do you know anything about site updates for TR.com?

I have updated the announcment of the description of the bonus DVD, as there were many questions regarding what was actually on it. The new description should be more clear.

Other stuff:
I'm working on getting the date question resolved.

As far as updates to the site, I do not have any official announcments, but I know good stuff is being planned.

Sorry I dont have more information.

Sooo, if you were to take a guess, would you say TR.com will have the same media as on the bonus disk? :D http://www.tombraiderforums.com/forums/graemlins/whistle.gif

Does this mean we have to buy Total Overdose in order to see the first look of TR Legend, or will it be available for download as well at some point?

Oh, and thanks Matt, for keeping us up to date. :)

I would assume there is going to be a major update to TR.com but don't know for sure. It makes sense tho to put all the new media on the main site at some point.

What is the official ruling on posting media from the bonus disk? No video? No pictures? No talking about it?

Is it ok to at least give an overview of it for the people who did not get to see it?


There is a bunch of stuff I would like to post. :)

Don't offer DVD content for download. Screenshots should be alright. And of course we can talk about the DVD.

To be honest, theres not much in that bonus that we haven't already seen, downloaded, talked about.... still waiting for the T-shirt though. :rolleyes:

If you read my post properly, it's just an opinion on the content of the bonus material; nothing more.

你们好,hello everyone, 其他国家的 game fans 。The game "Tomb Raider" is named "古墓丽影" in china. That means there is a beautifull girl in the tomb in wording. I like it's broad scene in the game,so I was atracked 。Perhaps you are atracked too.
What's your nationality??? all US??? 有时间给我留言. :D :D :D :cool:

Welcome 8350. Lots of people here also have English as a second language. We are all from all parts of the world, not just the US. In this thread alone you will notice people from countries such as the U.SA, England, Germany, Sweden, Canada and Australia just to name a few.

I am playing Total Overdose now and it's really funny and interesting. I like all the kill moves and controls in this game! Graphics and sound is great too! A lot of weapons and cars, personally I think that this game is even better than GTA :))

I haven't played GTA, it seems too vulgar to be interesting to me.

Total Overdose is a Huge PILE of big fun though. :thumbsup: So far it's funny and fun without being crude, tasteless or puerile.

The game is quite a lot of fun, but having played GTA I find the driving sequences in the games a bit annoying as the cars don't respond as well. The missions themselves are great though. :)

I finished it yesterday and it was great! The level with Mexican pyramids reminded me about Tomb Raider! This game really shows the difference between old and new generation computer games! I wish Eidos to make part 2! Thanks for the game guys!

GTA is not tasteless. I mean, unless you consider it tasteless to use prostitutes and then beat them up with baseball bats to steal back your money. I just consider it great fun! :D

Seriously though, GTA is a hell of a lot of fun, and there's something very therapeutic about being able to freely roam a city, causing havoc everywhere. I never thought it would be my type of game, but once I played it, I was completely hooked.

Haven't tried Total Overdose yet, though.
