Liked everything i saw aside from the xray vision and the conviction style "kill everyone" button. I dont intend to use either, i just hope the game doesnt punish you for not wanting to use it. Conviction did, hence why i hated it.

Well.. you are punished... it's harder.

I'll certainly be using those functions as I work up to playing the "Purist" difficulty.

Harder is fine. But conviction was DESIGNED for use of mark and execute. Where it funneled you into confrontation. Sure you could ignore the mechanic, but you'd have to break the way the game was designed to do so. I don't want a single instance of that in this game. I want to set it to hard, and do things my way...the old way...the better way.

the old way is the only way...

Yeah, like in the first Splinter Cell where the only one person you have to kill is Nikoladze and you can leave everyone else alive. Non-lethal gameplay in that game was hard but fun, surely not punishing.

My god, they've done it. I was convinced by their Chinatown walkthrough, but with all the disguises, open levels, and traps here I'm sold!

I thought at the E3 will be shown newspaper cuttings ...

I think the game looks quite impressive - and I don't know if it's a testament to that, but I think I would actually enjoy watching someone skillfull play this at twitch.tv more than playing it myself. :-)

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Turns out everyone on that island had to survive lara from murdering them with an AK47. From fragile student, to trained military killing machine in next to no time. (13 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite What was this survival aspect they were meant to be pushing? I was under the impression from the devs that you had to, you know, do stuff to survive (14 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Sdarts: Hated the first one, couldn't be arsed with the second. Wasn't Tomb Raider, or at least what I remembered it to be most memorable for. (15 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: already started. Already noticing dialogue changes. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: Yeah, really great story. Also, make sure to replay a second time, the enhanced edition has much more elements and story for the second playthrough. It's worth it. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Quite frankly, I'm excited for the StarCraft Remaster. I haven't played the original in years, and even though my brother has the CDs - and DLCs - it's very old game design wise. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog That oxenfree story is going to be sticking with me for a while. Damn... (2 Hours ago)
