FDJV: TRU presentation

FDJV: TRU presentation

We were too late for the beginning of Tomb Raider: Underworld's presentation at the Festival du Jeu Video, but we still managed to record some footage of the Kraken level. Unfortunately the video projector there was really bad, so the quality of the video is quite low. Nothing we can do anything about, but don't expect our usual quality. Also worth mentioning, the unveiling of the "sonar" allowing Lara to scan her surroundings, being a big help I guess, but if it's used some achievements/trophies will be lost.

she still looks like a toon. they really need to update her character model to fit the increasing detail in the rest of the game.

i agree, she may be in quite fantastical environments doing quite fantastical things (finding the hammer of thor? fighting a giant octopus) but stylistically the envionment etc are very much of the "realistic" variety, wheras lara herself looks far to exagerated to come across as a believable realistic woman.

cant say im excited for the game, but i definately will play it.

who was even comparing? they do need to do something to lara tho to make her more realistic looking, i mean, most games now have nailed a realistic human appearance (not photoreal, but realistic non the less), but lara STILL looks like a cartoon character with exagerated eyes, lips, an unatural facial structure, waist and hips, and lets not forget her rediculously oversized boobs. now, you could argue its the artstyle, but considering the environments look realistic, that goes out of the window. the environment and overall style looks like its from a game thats trying to look realistic, lara herself looks like she would fit better in a game like BG&E

I agree. And the skin looks terrible, color and shader... bad model too. She just looks bad.

You guys like to complain. I'm fine with Lara model and for me it's the least important aspect of the game.

I like the way she looks.

Also there are real life people who share the same body-type/characteristics Lara has.

Big eyes, very full lips and big breasts aren't that weird to me. That's Lara Croft. Accept it or move on.

And yes it is the 'style' in which Lara is presented that makes her 'look' weird to some people. It all depends on individual taste. Me and alots of other fans love the way she looks and the style. Others won't and perhaps never will.

C'est la vie.

Yes I can speak a bit of French 2. X)

J'adore le Français! :)

Lara is Lara. She always been that way and I hope she is gonna stay that way.

I just can't put my finger on what's missing in this game.

Neither uncharted or tomb raider look realistic... they can add all teh detail they want, but the garish colors & texture work just makes them look like a cross of CG cartoon and a animation one.
Lara and tomb Raider embraces this, and makes it a design choice all together ( both the enviroments and Characther model feel in tune, so no you're wrong )... uncharted tries to go trough the uncanny valley, and lets just say... matell has a new line of Adventurous Ken & Friends plastic dolls for mechandise, if they want.

i agree, the face seems "wrong"... (rest is ok, hehe)
it`s too "manga-ey", too "edgy". but still a must buy for me ^_^

the only thing missing to a "perfect" tr-game would be a photorealistic Lara :oD
maybe next time.

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: just get the samsung we keep recommending. it's honestly the best bang for buck you can get. you can get better sets, but you will pay the price. and it seem your budget isnt very high. (7 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @KORNdog: It's so confusing man.. I have been slaving for a week for a decent 4kt TV and I keep hitting all these little things and it's annoying lol. (17 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog that's all i really understand of it. seems HDR10 is what most TV's have though, so you're probably safe with that. (59 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog a dolby featured one can still do HDR10. but it doesnt work the other way around. also dolby's goes up to 4000nits (arguably future proof but no TV supports it yet) and HDR10 goes up to 1000 nits. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: it's basically just a "brand" of HDR, HDR10 is pretty much the standard right now, and i think dolby do one too? (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane There are version of HDR? I can see some TVs have HDR 10 listed... what does that mean? (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @KORNdog: Sadly I have to agree. This was a big let down for me.... I like FF13 better, there I said it! (2 Hours ago)
