Which sphinx is that? It looks like the Sanctuar of the Scion's sphinx cos of the door at the base and no block.

See the mummies from the Tomb of Qualopec!

I think it's the sanctuary of the scion sphinx, because it has caves, passages and doors at the side of it, the mummies look great!

What difference does it make if the guide is ugly or not? He only features for 5 seconds... :rolleyes:

I know, but he looks way better in the original.

So I thought I'd bring it up.

HAH! The guy looks incredibly old in the remake... Still who cares he dies within minutes of being introduced, unless there's a training level with him in it ****

Yere, I know what a moustach is but now I've had a harder look and to me it seems that his bottom lip looks really big

Looks fine to me, no bigger than the original guides bottom lip, you must be running out of idea's for new threads :p

Since you have already looked at the new concept art l am surprised you have not started a thread yet about who is Paul

Phlip

Oh~ Yeah~ This guy has "sharp-point of view" like me. hehe~ :p
This guide is ugly is no-problem to me. I guess... EIDOS thought
a certain human-being who will be to die, is designed more ugly or
angry face. I think this guide's face is not ugly rather angry(=evilly)...
That's true. Always my thinking is correct especially, concern to this
TombRaider. Think again... You want to die who? above? or below?

hehe~ :lmao:


Small size is OK. but... Don't put the large size images
(or "dead-link" images) on the posting directly. PLZ...
Just URL link is better. e.g. Click here(1) (http://www.tombraidercentral.net/page_images/tr_ae/artwork/full/02.jpg), Click here(2) (http://www.tombraidercentral.net/page_images/tr_ae/artwork/full/06.jpg)

You think Mexican? I think... seems to be...
rather Vietnamien (http://i81.photobucket.com/albums/j215/aussie500/AE%20game/uvs070225-004.jpg)... :scratch:
This "Sombrelo (http://i81.photobucket.com/albums/j215/aussie500/AE%20game/uvs070225-002.jpg)" is looking better...
Maybe hat above is comming from...
"made in KOREA"

:lmao:


well, as I say, the newer guide looks like a buffalo, seriously, take a good look, I mean, the ugly face and big lips and if the skin tone had fur details then t'd look like a Buffalo.Tell me what are the diffrences:

Yeah~ I agree... How did you know I like to see this buffalo in TR future? :)
I'd like to see really this "buffalo groups" in the future TR game. Wheather this
buffalo will be enemy or not. But... Rather this buffalo face is more "mild"
than a guide. Difference? There is no horn to a guide~ hehe~ :p


...I believe women who live up north in the mountain areas were a hat similiar to it but its much smaller, men wear like a kind of hoody for lack of better words...

This hat came from and "made in" KOREA. This is true. Look below.
Somebody argue every country famer(1)(europe) (http://dicimg.naver.com/100/400/78/57478.jpg), (2)(philliphin) (http://dicimg.naver.com/100/400/54/55554.jpg)

Whats with the hat too? lol That style of hat is not native to Peru IMO, I believe women who live up north in the mountain areas were a hat similiar to it but its much smaller, men wear like a kind of hoody for lack of better words. But like someone else said, hes only there for five minutes or less so what the hey.:nut:

I know but I'm just saying that sinse in the original, he appeared for actually less time because in the second trailer at the very beginning. You see him climbing up the ladder.

I just think that sinse the above, he shouldn't look like buffalo.

http://i16.tinypic.com/42l98n9.jpg

Look at the similarity in the eyes!

Oh great! now I'm seeing similarity in him as a frog:

http://i16.tinypic.com/4857t50.jpg

The Frogalo appears to have a hunchback because the original man's backpack was below his head.

What should his name be now?

How about The fronchalo man? :lol:

Poor guide. Not only does he get eaten by wolves about 2 mins into the action, he is also comapred to a buffalo, of all things, despite looking perfectly normal.

What'll be next, the rock that looks like Daniel Craig?

Phlip
24th Feb 2007, 20:31
Perfectly normal, well if you call a frog/buffalo mutant thingy with a hunchback a normal person then...:eek:

I mean, honestly, who thinks he does look like a buffalo?

Mabe his farther was a buffalo and his mother was a frog... but then how would they... Ah! his mother was a buffalo and his farther was a frog... I think:scratch:

:confused:

The graphics don't look as better as the FMV original one...I know the FMV grahics were "bad" but look at the shading and stuff - this is why I think there should've been FMVs. After seeing the first trailer got my hopes up but ..:(

Well I'm still getting it of course:D

This guy has quite "sharp-point of view" but...
I don't know why this guy think buffalo or flog
when this guy look a guide face... This guy think
very resemble between a guide and buffalo or flog...
Look carefully... Buffalo is more mild face. And guide
has a (white) moustache but buffalo has a beard.
This is a difference. When we see only buffalo face is from
the pic selectioned to resemble more to "Koala" face now.
That's mean... Nobody know this is buffalo or not...
And flog... flog eyes are round!!! But this guide eyes are sharp!!!
So this topic will be able to make a poll when over 50 reply here.

Poll questions:


(1) You think resemble more this guide with face of Buffalo?
(2) You think resemble more this guide with face of flog?
(3) You think resemble NOTHING
(4) You think resemble other (comments)
(5) You think resemble "The fronchalo" named to this guide.
(6) I don't care anything at all.



Rather you made very well the name of this guide...
"The fronchalo" That's good idea & job~ Rather...
"The fronphalo" is better? hehe~ :nut:

Phlip
25th Feb 2007, 16:12
I think I'm actually starting to see thathe dosn't look like a buffalo or a frog, because I can now see his white moustache and I can vaguley see the bottom lip.

I said he had fat lips but that's just his chin, his bottom lip is really small:

*sigh* I can't see the lip looking small anymore:(

You have really big interesting about this pic. :p
(that is not "white moustache" maybe seem a graphic error?)
Why don't you make a poll here? I'd like to recommand
to make a poll here right now. But this forum has no
much popular to vote. The poll when normally over
100 voter having any meaning.

Nearly same time to joining but you're over 120 postings.
And This topic is already being a hot topic. :o
Anyway your pic-looking topic is interesting.
Go ahead any other jobs like this here. ;)


If I make a poll, then what's is the question?:confused:And anyway, I've checked and I can't make it a poll because you can only do one when making a new thread, not editing your first post.

hmmm... good question. (e.g. poll question hints. (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showpost.php?p=621915&postcount=25))
The poll questions are very important.
And you can who make a poll on this topic.
Because you opened this topic and the HOST of this topic.
In fact, when I open any top-topic(=thread), there is no reply.
So I suggested you make a poll with normal English.

hehe~ ;)

Polls don't make any difference to Eidos; and most members don't vote simply because the options given are normally plain stupid. Only newbies bump them up when they're 6 or 7 months old and no one cares anymore.

The point still remains; what difference does it make what the guide look like when he is only featured for the briefest of the time?

Ugh?! When I click "new thread" button there is poll option?
Max. 10 poll options possible... What is it so? No fonction those?!?!
In fact, This topic is only fun subject not to serious for should
go to a poll which we need to see a conclusion. But why not?
This topic has already have many replies and being a hot-issue.
Except for this kind of fun poll, EIDOS should see and hear
this poll result on this FORUM. It is their DUTY!!! :mad2:

Look at this (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=1600845&postcount=228)~ This poll result over 300 voters has a POWER. :eek:
So don't make too oftenly this poll to any subjects.
There are some fomulas... When over 50 replies in this forum...
(when over 100 replies in overthere forum...) but arguing continue...
I think anybody can make a poll on that subject. Acutally, poll has
a fonction which finishing to argue about any subject. But weird...
This forum has no many ppl's paticipating to a poll...
The poll for newbie here... :(

Funny how a topic about how ugly a character is can last so long. a character that is featured for 5 seconds.... 5 seconds.... ahem

whatever, i don't really think he looks like a buffalo. if we are going to compare him to something then what the heck, he looks like a texas long horn to me. but no one said anything about the original guide's huge nose. Is this topic biased??? I am starting to think so.

maybe your links were removed...?

Joshorty
26th Feb 2007, 01:48
Yes they were. In fact, it's a REEEAL gOOD thing you didn't see them 'cause not only were they SPOILERS (MAAAAJOR) but they were in fact, ILLEGAL (no one to blame here - at least, in this side of the forums, nor do I intend on blaming anyone). I didn't realize that until a few minutes ago, a thread popped about why the video link was removed.

It seems (don't flame at me - I might be telling something inaccurate here:D/:() that one of the people who worked under CD released a video showing the in-game animations and MANY MANY demo-looking stuff that even showed what the T-REX looked like in texture less mode and how it'll come in, along with many stuff - even cutscenes -

I watched the first 30-45 seconds myself and MY GOODNESS it really gutted the heck out of me 'cause it SPOILED ME (a bit but enough). I'm more than smart enough not to spoil myself - this is my first scar:( I immediately turned off the comp (not close the media player- I TURNED OFF) 'cause it SPOILED THE HECK OUT OF ME.

My theory is that maybe one of the employees got all fiery mad 'cause they got fired and decided to release the "works" of the video and spoil it off

OR it was something else. I really don't know but this is definently not good..

Most likely he (seems even his name is banned now) was just a bit over enthusiastic about showing of his great animation work, and never considered the consequences of showing the Anniversary material without getting official approval first. Hopefully he still has a job :(

But you should know about that... So many ppl who hard-core fans for
this TR see all arround of TR game!!! (me too~ :whistle: ) They never lose
a little things and miserable stuff on the game ground. e.g. Lara's hair (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=1587423&postcount=89)
style... Actually, I don't care at all!!! What's matter with TR game with
Laras's hair? But they don't think so... It is Very important to them. So...
(Finally, they claim about "Lara's manicure" in the future game?!?! http://www.freesmileys.org/emo/rolleyes003.gif )
This topic also should be dealed with a kind of same line like user's favor.
Anyway this topic can make a poll because this topic having more and more
