    I don't think tomb raider had the theme of how damaging it is to take a life

    It had a scene where she was very upset right after the first one, but they moved past it very quickly

    when she talks to roth right after he says something like "oh geez it must have been really hard to have to kill someone" and she responds "actually it was more scary how easy it was"

    I've always viewed Tomb Raider as action movie-esque. Kind of like the original Rambo.

    That said I'm not sure why folks are always more critical of this game in that department. I guess cause they wanted the survival aspect played up a bit more?

    Personally I didn't mind.

    First Blood was more of a drama/thriller IMO.

    That's kind of what I'm saying.

    Tomb Raider starts at First Blood and ends with Lara fighting a helicopter.

    To anyone who beat the game, wondering how much more is left.

    I just had
    Jonah captured after I got the Atlas.

    Man this game uses darkness effectively. Even with the glowstick I'm inching forward thinking "Be brighter!" and it's great.

    Does Rise do the same thing as the previous game where you can wander around and unlock stuff after you beat the game or no?

    So

    GameStop's Black Friday deal is $350 for an Xbox One 1TB system, along with Rare Replay, Ori and the Blind Forest, and Gears of War Ultimate Edition

    Kinda considering getting that bundle along with Rise of the Tomb Raider

    I really don't wanna wait a year to play it

    Does this mean their timed exclusivity paid off?

    I don't want Gears of War, I'll probably just give that away if I end up getting this bundle

    Also, GameStop is actually doing Black Friday on 5 AM at Friday while every other store has moved up to 6 PM on Thursday, so I actually oddly kinda respect that

    Yes.

    Also that's one hell of a deal. If you're giving away gears, id gladly take it off your hands. :p

    No I don't.

    Well, the first game was pretty violent.

    I think the final battle was like literally killing 100 dudes.

    Sure they were like spirits or whatever but I still fucked em up.

    Target's got a deal going right now (it ends tomorrow) where you get a free game with your purchase, and Rare Replay will be $15 at Wal-Mart on Black Friday (which I'm going to anyways with some friends), so I just did the math and...yeah

    Gears of War Xbox One with Rise of the Tomb Raider ($350) + Ori ($20) + Rare Replay ($15) = $385

    Whereas at GameStop it would be

    Gears of War Xbox One with Ori and Rare Replay ($350) plus Rise of the Tomb Raider ($60) = $410

    So I just ended up ordering an Xbox One and Rise of the Tomb Raider for in-store pickup tomorrow

    It's only 500 gigs instead of 1TB, but I doubt my Xbox One will get that much use - my multiplatform games will still be PS4

    Replaying the last game.

    Does Rise do something like the "an edge with white paint is an edge you can use" thing?

    Got to the part with Himiko's tomb near the beginning of the game, and with it being a replay I wanted to bad just to burn the body then and there. But no, the rest of the game waits.

    People who've played Rise, how does the weapon improvement scheme work? One of my biggest gripes with the first game is that I play an almost exclusively Bow game, and of the 2 or 3 playthroughs I've done so far, my handgun and rifle were all upgraded well ahead of my bow and that sucks donkey balls.

    I can kind of understand what they were going for, it'd be a bit broken if I had the perfect 100% bow before a third of the game was over, but still, something that prioritized weapons I used would be nice.

    It's just like, here's a certain quantity of wood and cloth and metal and such that you have with you, and with that you can upgrade this gun or the bow or the axe or whatever

    If you wanna prioritize the bow then you can just keep choosing bow upgrades all the time

    TR 2013 had weapon parts that you had to get before you could upgrade to the next 'tier'. Does Rise have that?

    Add me to the list of people replaying 2013 to whet my appetite for Rise. Still an excellent game.

    Yeah, I've found a few weapon parts laying around. Although I also got a 'Rattlesnake' pistol because it was a 'community unlock' or something.

    You find specific parts to build a whole new weapon
    To upgrade existing ones you just gotta have enough wood/metal/etc

    There are tiers to the upgrades but those are unlocked for all weapons by getting the crafting tool, it's not on a per weapon basis

    I was sure I was going to progress the main story, but on my way I found the store and suddenly I need to find those coin stashes. Also I like the way the store is contextualised.

    Replaying reminds me of how much I dislike Alex's death on the endurance. Like come on, I've killed way more solarii than that pretty much every step I take on this island.'


    E: Got my last bow part! Had enough salvage on hand to 100% it, and then still had enough salvage left over to 100% the handgun which already had all the weapon parts needed.

    I love this game. It does perpetuate the joke about how Lara doesn't respect archaeology as much as she seems to enjoy destroying things everywhere she goes.

    I forgot about how short the first game's story is. I ended it with about 75% completion, and it took me maybe 8 hours?

    Does anyone need/want a code for the Definitive Edition? I already have it on PS4 so I don't need it
