Blood Ties DLC - First Impressions

After a month I managed to find the time to play the Blood Ties DLC. Better late than never! The DLC ran quite smoothly despite my doubts, my trusty lappy had enough power to run the game. Even with low graphics settings I did manage to enjoy the eerie athmosphere and also find the necessary pick ups. The game did not need zombies to be scary! Providing more background information to reboot-Lara and her family was a nice addition and there were quite many "hints" to earlier TR games, which felt ...

I haven't even purchased Blood Ties yet, because I was a bit sad with my laptop's poor-ish performance with RoTR. But now I'll re-consider buying Blood Ties - thanks for the info! Let's hope for the best that my laptop would manage to run Blood Ties with less issues than with RoTR. And I will defnitely not play the zombie mode! Basic RoTR was enough to give me the creeps every now and then.

Wow, so much DLC and other cool things have appeared since I last checked. Baba Yaga, Blood Ties, 20 years celebration etc. Too bad my laggy laptop doesn't really increase my excitement. I haven't even played RoTR since my very first playthrough since the game lags so much even with the lowest graphics settings... The smaller environments are alright, but don't get me started with the Soviet Installation. I'd like to explore the eerie-looking Croft Manor in Blood Ties, but then again, my dear an...

Hello again! So, I managed to complete RoTR - even though at times it felt impossible. I must say the game is quite awesome, and completing it left a nice feeling of eagerness towards the possible upcoming games and adventures. However, I do feel that 100% completion might be too much for me to achieve. The vast surroundings with all the hidden caches, relics and documents... Not to even mention the challenges! The hidden optional tombs were quite nice and there was a nice number of them. Someti...

Hooray! I found a way tp play RoTR at least somehow. My sister's laptop with Nvidia drivers runs the game - with the lowest graphic settings, but it runs. There still are some laggy bits, but I've managed to play the game quite a lot. I haven't been able to update my own laptop's drivers correctly and I'm not nerdy enough to understand why... My some of thoughts so far: Spoiler The game is quite awesome, but sometimes the sequences with collapsing surroundings seem quite repetitive and collectin...

First Impressions of Rise of the Tomb Raider

Hello, and sorry for replying to my own post! So, I was so eager to play the new RoTR that I pre-purchased the standard edition on Steam. Full of excitement, I started to play the long-waited game on the 28th of January. I switched all the graphics and display settings to the lowest ones, as I knew the game would probably be too much for my poor laptop. I even turned off my bigger screen, and played the game on my laptop's screen. After some more settings tweaking, I managed to get the game to r...

Quoted from "Wile E. Coyote" That's interesting news! I hope that the PC version is coming soon so that more gamers can actually play this game! In my opinion there are far too few people playing it, it is by far the best Tomb Raider for a long time and I hope that the will do another sequel if the sales are good... I hope for a PC release soon, too - and a sequel. I think it's a bit weird that there apparently hasn't been any official announcement for example in the Official Tomb Raider blog o...

Rise of the Tomb Raider released on PC in January 2016!

Sorry for replying to my own post with these big news! But Rise of the Tomb Raider has appeared to Steam, and the Steam's page says the game will be available in "January 2016". Some googling revealed me some rumours about the exact date being January 26th, but those shall be just rumours. I'm so happy and excited right now! But at the same time I'm also a bit worried about the system requirements and also about how the many interactions with the in-game world have been turned into keyboard cont...

Played a bit of the 2013 Tomb Raider, and wow, I can't believe I have managed to complete it. It's quite scary: piles of corpses, blood, more piles of corpses. Geothermal Caverns is one of the most horrible locations in the 2013 game... But I also watched some walktroughs of RoTR on Youtube, and I must say it indeed is atmospheric and not as scary as 2013 TR. There seems to be quite much to do and interact and the areas are so large... I must say I'm in love with RoTR. RoTR seems to have more of...

The game looks so awesome, it will definitely demand a lot from my poor laptop. I won't get the Xbox One though, I hardly can think of any other games that I'd play on it... I guess I'll have to wait for more info about the system requirements, and think about buying a new laptop or more efficient parts for my current one. :chin Hmmm... Perhaps releasing RoTR on other platforms could be a good time for another TR-hype, or at least trying to create one...? I haven't been following much on what's ...

Hello there! Waaah, RoTR looks so cool - I can hardly wait until it's released on PC! I'm totally spoiling myself by reading walkthroughs and watching videos on Youtube. ...And I bet the game is actually as awesome as it looks and seems! In order to ease my eagerness to play RoTR at least a tiny bit, I've gotten myself the mobile games Relic Run and Lara Croft Go. They're quite nice and fun actually, a nice way to spend time waiting for the PC RoTR. I'm a bit worried whether my laptop will be ab...

Thank you for the links, those did help clarifying the concept of the Expedition Cards. I'm still a bit confused about those new and special game modes and why exactly are they in the game... But as long as there is the regular game, I'm happy... I personally don't really care for other stuff than the normal gameplay. There's still plenty of time to wait for the PC release in "early 2016", so I guess I'll just wait to see what's the game really like.

Hello, Just read about the Microtransactions in Rise of the Tomb Raider and I'm a bit confused, really. I don't really understand the concept of those Expedition Cards, perhaps I'm just having a bit of trouble translating that article in my head... Are the credits used to buy the Expedition Cards earned similarly like gaining XP or what? And are those cards replacing skills and weapon upgrades..? Oh, and in that article there's a tiny bit of info about the multiplayer mode and the game's release...

E3 2015 Ambassador

Hello! Thanks for all the info from E3. Quoted from "tombraidergirl" The following questions have been asked by fans: - Will there be a multiplayer mode? If so, will there be a co-op mode where Raiders fight the AI together? - Will the events from the comics the novel be relevant in Rise? - Will there be boss fights? - Will there be a Croft Manor? - Will there be DLC? - How big a role will 'survival' play? - How is the transition between levels / locations?

Game Informer's Rise Of The Tomb Raider Hub

Hello! I maybe a little late with my "news", but Game Informer does have a Rise of the Tomb Raider Hub. There you can find Game Infromer's feature articles concerning the upcoming game. This is a similar regularly updated feature to the one Game Informer had about TOMB RAIDER reboot. I'd so like to be all excited about Game Informer's hub, but all I can think of is "Oh right, the game won't be on PC right away..."

Graphics Issue Solved - At Least For Now

Sorry for replying to my own post! But with the help of my more tech friend I managed to solve the graphics problem. The solution involved running the Tomb2 launcher through Windows 7's start up search bar with -setup attached to the path end: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Tomb Raider (II)\Tomb2 -setup Using the above path on the start up menu's search bar opened the game's display setup. The path is default for Steam on my computer, so if you try it and you've got your Steam TRI...

Steam's Tomb Raider II Graphics Issue

Hello, all! So, I've gotten Tomb Raider II via Steam a while ago. The game runs smoothly, but there is an issue with the graphics. There is some colour mess going on, some pixels are bright blue, violet, red... many colours that should not be there. But: the colour mess does not show at all on screenshots taken with Fraps! As if the game is trolling me, "Ha-ha! Try to prove this you dummy!" Also, using Print Screen results in the screenshot being very much darker than it actually is. So, it's pr...

Rise of the Tomb Raider Xbox exclusive - Excuse me?!

What a lovely gif, Soul! But yeah, people are indeed different in that sense. I'm no business expert, but if the freshness of the story, the excitement and all wear off during the wait for other platforms, it might affect the sales in a negative way. So in that sense the exclusiveness thing is plain stupid, even a temporary one. Personally I don't mind the wait, I got the latest one way later than most, knew the story and all... But still I enjoyed the game. But I also undertand your point! Meh....

Rise of the Tomb Raider Xbox exclusive - Excuse me?!

Thank you very much, Flo! Now I'm not that disappointed anymore, at least not to the point where I'd want to type some nasty words. Now if only the lenght of the duration would be announced... It would be nice to know whether the wait is months or years. Games mentioned in the article seem to have roughly about a year wait... I think I could handle that. It would have been really horrible if the exclusiveness was permanent...
