    Wow long thread.

    I am an old person who played TR1 when it first came out. I had to wait a few days for someone to post the IRQ corrections for Sound Blaster cards. I remember the AOD nightmare...

    I would love to see the next Tomb Raider explore Lara's attractiveness in a tasteful, sex-positive way.*** It would be a natural extension of Lara's maturation at her age.

    I thought that Whitman was mispronouncing Lara's name because they were trying to show how dim-witted he was.

    That was my interpretation.
  4. Unable to pick up silver secret in Croft Manor Library

    Hi,

    I am not able to pick up the silver shield secret in the Croft Manor library. This is the one that is behind the moveable bookcase. Any advice?


    (It's the last secret in the game for me.)

    Another perspective

    At the risk of turning this into a PC versus Console debate.

    While going through the developer's commentary for Portal 2 (everyone should play that game, BTW), I began to wonder if consoles are...

    I have argued this many times in other forums but I will argue it again.

    People will take Lara less seriously as a character if the game resorts to arcade/John Woo style combat. Watch the WET...

    I really struggled with the camera.

    I struggled with the controls (but not nearly so much as AOD).

    It was too short.

    I don't mind the plot-line about her parents. At least it's an attempt at a plot-line. It tries for drama. Shooting Larson in Natla's Mines (TRA) was a tension filled moment. Finding Lara's...
