    Mysterious Circles at Lara's feet, are they a clue to GoL's gameplay??

    Ok, so by now it either has or hasn't sunken in yet, this is Lara Croft's next adventure. It may not have the Tomb Raider seal of approval, so I guess it doesn't put it in the TR1-9 category, but that's up for debate at another time. Though a few bits and pieces have been given on plot, and gameplay, as for co-op, let's start there for our speculation shall we? I spot with my little eyes faint circles of color at Lara's and Totec's feet,

    and the view is reminiscent of many other games, one series that comes to mind is Marvel Ultimate Alliance series, I wonder if the gameplay is like it as well! I suppose we can be either character, so when Tihocan's distant cousin there, walks the tight rope, we have to be him (when playing alone) and not when playing with someone else online. Any thoughts? Is there any other way it could work.

    lets wait and know .... I think that these are to know who we are and who is the 2nd player .. or maybe to switch between lara and tetec..

    they probably show which character you are plating with, Maybe one can swap between characters in single-player mode

    if you dont like tomb raider, look away from the screen then.

    I think you'll be able to switch between the two characters in single player mode. Like Lego star wars was it? So that's the purpose of the circles.

    Yeah,it's probably like the sims; selection based icon thingamajiggys.

    Usually just icons to distinguish your characher from the other characters around. Seems a bit like what you see in some strategy games

    It reminds me of RPG style character icons. In some RPG 'over head' style games(like this one looks),there are player indicators like this.

    *Gulp!* RPG?! Those 3 letters have the same effect on me as does a cross to a Vampire.

    I'm really crossing my fingers for an arcade tie-in.

    @hyrule12, hmm... It never crossed my mind that it could be for health, that would mean,.. that we would need to care about Totec's life diminishing.

    @hiMe, well the diamond thingamajiggs do look like the save crystals from olde TR's. Thinking back now, I remember trying to save a Sims game following the diamonds on the heads thinking they were on the ground. he he. I now know they indicate the sim being used, which could be like what these circles are for.

    I wonder if they have the same color schemes for an avatar's state of health too.

    I have been wondering, what if you're playing the other non Lara dude and someone joins from online and takes Lara's spot. Does that mean you can't switch back?

    Nah you can probably switch back if you both select the option or something. Or if you're like the host of the game.

    Yes, that is what I think it is.
    Humanity is not a species or a race, it is a STATE OF MIND.

    Even if there is character switching think I would stick with Lara as much as I could.

    Yeah, it's gonna be a bit of a fight between who gets Lara in multiplayer mode hehe. But Totec may be really cool ya never know.
