Haven’t played it yet… going to wait for the steam summer sale, but from what I saw watching my buddy play it… Lara gets the tar knocked out of her. Now, I’ll admit, she’s a tough old bird, still, I don’t think many humans can survive the amount of falling and getting shot at that she does. And from the looks of it, she just gets more and more beat up.
Still, as a big Tomb Raider fan, I’m looking forward to this reboot! The series has long needed a good injection of adequate talent to make it back into the top games position.
That being said, from what I hear, it still highly linear. Now, maybe I’m spoiled with open world games like Skyrim, Just Cause 2, Fallout3, and the likes, but I think if any series could do very well with large world exploration, it’s the Tomb Raider series. Yeah, I see it has some, but that last Final Fantasy had “open world” too… still felt like a rail shooter in an arcade. Also… multiplayer? What the hell? Granted… haven’t tried it out… but not all games need a multiplayer gimmick. Seriously… seems like anything with a gun in it has to have a multiplayer version. I wouldn’t be so opposed if it was decent and doesn’t interfere with the core gameplay… but TR isn’t a coop/multiplayer game (well, maybe coop with Lara’s twin sister Dora…) so it feels like it was just an afterthought added to bolster sales… all the while depleting resources and development time that could be better spent on making the core game longer or having mod support.
Anywho, I’ll give a full proper report when I sit down with it this summer. Maybe my surly preconceived notions will warm up… or maybe I’ll set my computer on fire because they battered the franchise as much as they did Lara… We shall see. >)
(in either case, I’m glad to see someone’s moving forward with the series… it’s been a good long while since we’ve seen it in the headlines)
Ain’t it the truth? When you work/school, there’s no time for games, but when you get sick and have to stay home… still no games! Or at least for me anyways. Man, when I’m out, I’m really out!
But fear not, I’m not under any weathers at the moment (knock on wood). I did run into this a few weeks back where I had to call out of work cause of evil cold viruses and basically slept for a few days. Ah well, at least there’s weekends for gaming! >)
So apparently it’s ok to bring your kids to a big ol scifi/comic convention with scantly clad women in cosplay but heaven forbid you have pinupy type posters for sale! Seriously folks, it seems like every time someone has to make a comment about this passing by my table. And in the grand scheme of things… my stuff is pretty darn tame. >)
Ah well, I had a great time anyways! Even did some commissions! My “hang in there boba” and steamboat posters were the best sellers this time around. Seems I’ve got some more to do for next time!
Anyways, thanks to everyone who came by to say howdy! <3
Uhg… Not this again! Fiscal Cliff v2.o!!! Guess we have until Friday to make a decision or we get big cuts across the board in government spending. Sure, sounds ok at first, we don’t need to spend $10,000 on a single hammer, but when you look at it hitting everything with the same percent, bad things happen. Such as, if you cut a program that’s been highly scaled down and leaned, then there’s not a lot more room for any reductions.
So… we’ll see what happens…
But so far, the Prez has been dropping some serious gloom and doom lately with some real pessimistic views of post cut America. The folks over at Politifacts have sorted out what our lovely politicians have been spouting and analyzing the validity of their claims. Spoiler Alert: The a good bit of what they say to us is bubkiss!
In other news!
I found out that I’ll be at booth Purple 15 at the Orlando Megacon this March 15, 16, & 17! Stop on by! And tell me that you’re a reader for special lootz! >D
Never understood the whole “fresh air” thing. I mean, I live in Florida… there’s 4 seasons of spring. At no point in the year is there ever a lack of pollen or spores in the air. So the idea of “going outside” seems counter productive to me. >)
Maybe it’s just a FL thing, but I swear it’s the only place you can feel winded, get allergies, and be covered in a thing layer of humidity and air oil… just by going to your mailbox and back. Good times… Good times…
Probably the same for any place you live, but I swear folks around here have it out for pedestrians.
Anyways, whenever I see these on cars, all I can think of is those old WWII planes with the stamps on the nose of the enemies they shot down. I can only assume it has the same meaning…
I was totally surprised by the news this last week that women are now allowed to join in military combat!
Well… not shocked because they shouldn’t be there, but because they weren’t there already. I mean, what the heck, America?! I know we’re a bit chauvinistic on these shores but I’m surprised it took them this long to get it sorted out. Never mind that women have already been in combat situations already… but now it can be official!
The funny thing about the US economy is that if we treated it like it were a teenager, we’d have taken away it’s credit cards decades ago!
Think about it. This whole issue with Financial Cliffs and Debt Ceilings is because we all decided that it’s much easier to borrow lots of cash, spend lots of cash, and not really pay the bills. To the tune of trillions of dollars. That was essentially what that ceiling was supposed to be, but whatever, we just raised the credit limit and put the whole thing off for a little while more. No worries. We’ll let the next generation deal with it. Sorry kids, not our problem!
In all fairness, some debt is good. Well… that’s what my finance and economics teachers always said. Personally, I’d rather only buy something if I new I could pay for it… But what do I know? Honestly, I wouldn’t mind paying a bit more taxes for a few years if it meant that it would be spent to kill off the debt in like a decade. Then, of course, NEVER let it get that bad again! Wishful thinking, I know, but what can ya do?
So, who out there is getting kinda worried about the state of affairs here? Any thoughts on how we could go about fixing things?
Hey folks, this is a bit of an oldie I dug up from my printed comics. Been in a bit of an exhausted slump this week so I apologize for it not being up to 2013 standards. >)
But… if you would like to see more tidbits like this, you can purchase a printed or digital copy of my Coffin Comics book in the Shop! Or stop on by my booth at Megacon in Orlando this March 15-17 and pick up a copy for like uber cheaps!
