LOL, I really think spiders will be involved in this game.

In the screenshot where Lara is on a pole, she has her gun pointed at a spider below.

I think this is a great little enemy. Heh heh

Opinions???

... these are large mutant spiders that are able to track Lara over walls, up poles, and so on. this has been mentioned in a few of the various recent reviews.

the clicky sound of those old spiders still makes me shudder ...

... and (shudders again) ...
if the TRU adversaries have better AI, then rabid bats are going to be like nano-cruise missiles (hehehe) ...

Well spotted! Ewww spiders. I take it this must be the creatures that can follow Lara up walls? Help :eek: ! Didn't I see a extremely rough animation where Lara is dragged into a spider pit by a gigantic spider. It was used as a motion trial or something. For Legend I think. It was floating around the internet. Maybe they decided to go with it for TRU?

No, that was something from Core's AE.

I like spiders, and I hate having to kill them in games. Funny how no one ever complains about how OOC spiders are in games. Everyone's perfectly willing to believe they'll go out of their way and attack you. :scratch:

Yep, spiders were confirmed in the IGN article (at least I THINK it was the IGN article... may have been another one, but they were definitely confirmed somewhere.)

Yeah, but do you remember those old Bard's Tale games from the 1980s, where spiders would wander up to you and ask to join your party to fight alongside you? My friends and I used to joke around about accidentally stepping on the poor things as they marched bravely beside us into battle.

Okay 2 shots is reasnable but they're found in underworld they're supernatural, Only joking but 1 shot seems too easy but if theres like 20 in a row then it wont be so easy :D Then it'll be great :D :thumbsup:

Stwo shots should be a mazimum of killing spiders... No more, no less. Tomb Raider has always had creature that never die so easy, like the t-rex how many bullets does it rele need to take (in the head and mouth oh dont forget the eyes) untill is dead, i no its a game but i'm just saying lol... Two shots would be enough for spiders... Sorry if i blabbered im ill and cant think properly :(

Meh, just read that preview. I agree with especially the paragraph you pointed to: Why does Lara have to fight and kill everyone and everything in her way? It's a bit odd. I hope that animals will be more neutral and probable to flee anyway. I can't see a normal spider hunting me down... okay, if it's a demonic hell-spawn looking like a spider, I'm fine with that, but I think it would be great if animals finally started acting like animals in games.

That said: I generally like spiders as enemies, in almost every game. Probably because I find those critters just creepy. Except in Dark Messiah of Might & Magic: That version of poison in that game just plain sucked. Made the spiders my most-feared enemies, because 2 of them could kill you instantly. Zombies, too :(
