Bethesda (ZeniMax). If you want a game that is substantial, given all the time necessary until it is totally completed, and realizes the tremendous potential for a solid, movement based simulation that puts the game on the innovation map again.

Eidos!!


I stay with Eidos.If Eidos is being bought out, how could TR stay with them? I say if anyone was to buy out Eidos and take all their titles Ubisoft would be the best to do it in comparison with others out there. They may leave the titls production with CD but if they don't they have the most experience in the same feild of design as TR with Assassin's Creed and PoP.

Let's not forget just because Ubi have a history of developing and publishing their own games doesn't mean they will want to develop TR, Eidos doesn't Develop it so why should Ubi. It hink they would keep CD untill they don't wanna do it anymore or they just aren't bringing the goods to the table anymore. As a mater of fact a change of publisher might be a good thing.

Yeah cuz that's what they would do. Just becaus they changed PoP doesn't mean they would change TR. Why would they mess with a winning formula? PoP was ending its style, story and means with the end of the Sands of Time trilogy, it allowed for variation and a lot of change this isn't possible with TR. There NEEDS to be a certain look, style and design about it. CD discovered that the hard way with legend.

Plus one bad game doesn't detract form the award winning games that Ubi has produced int he past; PoP: SoT trilogy (gameplay, mechanics, puzzles and dificulty.) Spinter Cell (good graphics and mechanics even though it isnt the same style of gameplay.) and Assassin's Creed (style, look, graphics and open design.) And as for EA...are you kidding me? Besides sports games they don't have much credidence IMO they have never successfully created a game like TR as Ubi have.

Also, i'm not being funny...PoP added a lot of the stuff TR has used since CD took it before TR did. TR did not rip off PoP, PoP existed BEFORE TR so that says soemthing. Its not a case of TR and uncharted PoP and TR borrow and lend from each other. With out PS1 TR PoP on PS2 wouldn't have been how it was and without PoP Cd's TR wouldn't have been how it is!

Kill me, but either Eidos or Sony. I know that then TR would be only on ps3 (for the record - I actually don't have one) but I won't stand the next change of studio, Lara, the biography, the history. And just like Crystal Dynamics rid of Kurtis and generally AOD, the new studio would threw out Zip and all the mama history as well.

Ubosoft is known for their "intellectual" games.

Very complex stories that make senses.

Very rich puzzles, quiet, even introspective, environments that are texture rich and quality consistent. Very good and diverse environment. See Syberia.

Adding some action would be a first for them but I believe they could do it.

If they do it, be prepared for a more intellectually and emotionaly complex Lara.

As for the storyline, I would not be surprised if they brought back the mother and or Natla, even if just for a cameo appearance.

But saving the world from the Midgard serpent was really jumping the shark. Maybe she could finally get to Niflheim and find Avalon...and bring Amanda with her and make peace (I kinda like that whiny, immature little brat.)

Other.

The way I look at it, we want a publisher with a track record that spans more than one franchise and/or more than one genre (preferrably both).

EA is a monster. They meet my criteria above. People who complain about EA's support have not experienced THQ's (non-) support, Epic Games' (non-) support, and and NovaLogic's (non-) support. EA would be a good if uninspired pick.

I don't know much about Ubisoft. The Tom Clancy franchises seem to be well executed.

But let's talk about companies that deliver "WOW" even if they are more developers than publishers.

How about Monolith? Three franchise home runs in the same genre (FPS). Blood, No One Lives Forever, and F.E.A.R.

How about Valve? Half-life is a tier-one franchise and Portal was fantastic (better than episode 2, IMO).

How about Rockstar? GTA was genre defining. Max Payne was (I think) the first to do the "slo mo" action.

My heart would leap with Valve or Monolith but I would feel safe with the future in the hands of EA.

Eidos may be acquired by one of these publishers, so staying with Eidos technically means a new publisher in this scenario.

I don't really have a strong preference. Warner Brothers seems the most likely according to the articles I've seen.

*** Reality Check ***

Ok u guys do realise that EA owns 20% of Ubisoft :cool: .

EA tells Ubisoft what to do all the time. Especially with their marketing - thats why Assassins Creed sold so many copies becuase EA did the marketing strategy.

I just hope they dont change the development studio.

Like hey, please, just give our TR and Lara to a publisher, who can actually test and really be involved in its production until the product is right for our PCs and for all the consoles. (We need actually game-techs and not a bunch of slippery sales-types.)

And not a bunch of marketeers, either, who over-hype (lie, cheat, steal and control?) as they push an unfinished product out the door, because of cash-flow problems or just to make the Christmas buying season. :nut:

I agree, I wait for the day when TR is published & developed by a team that takes it seriously & wants it to be great artistically again & not just a cash vacuum. I'll still keep my fingers crossed for that day when a new TR game actuallly genuinely makes a mark again, wows & impresses critics & gamers & not just the TR fans.:)

I think the poster means simply that TRU was released even though clearly it was very buggy & glitchy, more so then AOD ever was. Other publishers will not release a game until they think it's a polished product even if it means a delay.:wave:

I'd take Ubi-soft over EA any day. EA seems to produce games on an assembly line without caring if they are ready or not then slap their crappy DRM on them. They then expect us to be so happy to buy their junk. Better yet love to win the lottery and buy it myself. Well that won't happen.

I still fail to see the "bugginess" of the game that would be anything serious.

A few bugs, maybe, but I don't have any idea what these many bugs and glitches everyone is talking about are.

And from my experience, it wasn't nearly as buggy as AOD.

I'm not speaking of you in any way, but I think most people are just trying to find bugs to whine about. I completely understand a situation in where you're playing the game and you happen upon one, but I honestly think people are just trying to find bugs. And if it were as buggy and glitchy as everyone says, I think the reviewers (you know, the ones that get paid to do their job) would be saying more as a whole.

Glad you mentioned AoD, mate. ;)
Because I am one of the "lucky few", who never played AoD. . .
And since I could not play TRU, with that SM3 requirement, I decided to spend less then 10 USD for AoD, this Christmas.

Btw, for my PC system, TRA and TRL (normal mode) looked and played very nicely! :thumbsup:
So, I was really looking forwards to a superbly done TRU game.

But, here I am having a wonderful retro-game of Tomb Raiders AoD, right now. :)
(And Core Design working all the way up to a Build 49 seems to show that they must have really loved TR players, back then.) :thumb:

(So maybe let one CD, Core Design, manage another CD, Crystal Dynamics?) :D

No serious bugs, I had to start the game again during my first play through like many others. Just try doing the Mexico calender puzzle in a different order & you better rush to the gate opening otherwise it will close without being abled to be reset, so you can't continue. The motorbike spawns at different check points from Lara the list goes on.

I've never ran into that problem, except when playing the Wii version, and that spells it out for itself.

I'm not doubting the existence of the bugs.
I just think that some people are exaggerating.
It's not anything new to exaggerate about ANYTHING. Even a game's playability.
If you aren't exaggerating, than I'm not speaking of you.
