    Am i the only one that saw the cover of GI and thought he accidentally got a Time magazine with a story about abused women on the cover?

    I think the game sounds pretty good but damn between the cover and the pictures inside....well it just has the appearance and feel of some horror movie with some sexploitation thrown in.

    Someones (probably one of these stick up their ass groups like PETA) going to grab on this as more 'video games are violent and sexist' crap.

    Awuhhhh? I wouldn't go that far.
    • Deus Ex
    • Dead Space 2
    • Uncharted 3 (maybe?)
    • The Last Guardian
    • Arkham City
    • BioShock Infinite (maybe?)
    • inFamous 2

    And then, maybe,
    • Tomb Raider

    The fact that all these games are coming out and I still want TR more speaks volumes about how much I want this game right fucking now

    Except Deus Ex and Dead Space which I couldn't give a shit less about

    The first Dead Space was such a well-made game in every regard

    Like, seriously. It looked fantastic, it controlled like a dream, great use of sound.

    I really can't explain why I found it so terribly boring and utterly soulless.

    • Deus Ex - They messed up IW really bad for me to get super excited bout this.
    • Dead Space 2 - Sequel in which the main guy now talks. "TAKE IT BITCHES!"
    • Uncharted 3 (maybe?) - PS3? Fuck that
    • The Last Guardian - PS3 only, Blegh
    • Arkham City - Hell yes its exciting, but its a sequel. TR is a reboot so that has me more interested
    • BioShock Infinite (maybe?) - They can't live up to the story of 1
    • inFamous 2 - PS3, don't have one

    And then, maybe,
    • Tomb Raider

    Fixed post to show what I think of those. So yeah, Tomb Raider is still my most wanted. (Also, she's English!)

    If infinite was set in rapture and not made by the team behind Bioshock 1 I'd agree that it might be awful. The trailer made it clear though that it doesn't want anything to do with Bioshock 1 or 2.

    This looks promising. I like the Laura model I don't like that she's portrayed as emotionally weak. That's not really the character. I'll forgive it since it's an origin story though

    Its a complete reboot of the series, so the strong emotional Lara you're referring to never even existed.

    Emotionless. Well not that severe. She was detached from the situation professional. And the core of the character shouldn't be rebooted. We saw how well that went with Dante.

    I just found it kinda amazing. I mean, this isn't the name of some obscure video game NPC or something. Lara Croft is one of gaming's biggest icons. It's kinda hard to miss. That's like getting Duke Nukem or Gordon Freeman wrong. Not to mention we've been discussing Lara and mentioning her name for pages and pages in this very thread.

    What I gathered from this post is "Big Isy needs a PS3"

    Also, uh yeah, spelling does kind of matter, it's not a "personal preference" thing. If your name is Bob, I'm not gonna spell it "Bobb" and say that it's my personal preference. Also Laura and Lara don't even have the same pronunciation, so, yeah.

    Personal preference suggests there's some leeway with the spelling of the name--for example, romanization when there are two ways to spell the name. There isn't--her name's on a bunch of the games, and it's always spelled the same way, what with it being English.

    TR is going to get rebooted into oblivion. Really, there is no need for it. The second incarnation was perfectly fine.

    But Underworld was a bit of a sales disappointment, and I'm glad they're smart about shaking things up earlier this time (after three iterations with the current Lara, as opposed to five with the original one)

    And as I said in the Deals thread - having never played a Kane and Lynch game - I found the DLC pack to be astoundingly good and fun. I figured it would be re-skins, but the new intro to the game made me laugh out loud.

    And since I have no idea, but believe someone who said the dialogue is just cut and edited from previous Kane and Lynch voicework (which is a pretty brilliant idea), the dialouge was HILARIOUS and awesome.

    I was really, really impressed with the quality. And since there's a new intro, Im ASSUMING they went all out and made a new ending, and I am going to play through the whole thing again to see it.

    Jesus this is a briliant idea. I went from hoping the new characters would have different mechanics and thus different approaches to the puzzles, to being disappointed they were just reskins, to being excited to play through the game in a completely ridiculous manor.

    I read somewhere that to make up for the late release of online co-op, each platform got one of the challenge packs for free. Steam has pack number 2 for free, but none of the others are available.
