It's was posted on a parody twitter account of Kaz Hirai, not the real CEO's twitter account.

Although, that's a heck of a zinger.

you see the joke is that uncharted refers to both sales numbers and is a similar video game series, and the ambiguous use of the word can imply both meanings simultaneously for a humorous effect

It's already been debunked to be timed exclusive, like 60% of the xbone first party lineup.
 
2014-08-13 11:41:26 AM  
At least it's only going to be a timed exclusive.  The last Tomb Raider game had issues, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Unless a company owns a game studio I hate exclusives.  It usually doesn't serve the game company in the long run with an IP.

TR 2013 is a cross between Uncharted combat and traversal wise but it's an origin story for Lara. It has some good character development from this meek college girl that's following in her family's footsteps but I think everything goes ham once she gets ahold of a grenade launcher. Plus, tombs are an after thought and just serve as an XP challenge.

I feel the Uncharted series (particularly 2) is more polished as a whole.

When I encounter "serious gamers" that insist PC is the only way to play, I immediately know they aren't serious gamers. Some things only work on a console, some things only work on a PC. When I have a choice, I play the games I want to play on the hardware the suits them best, and other times I'm forced to play on one or the other because that's what the software's for.

I agree with all of this.  Tomb Raider didn't have Lara in enough Tombs, and in a game called Tomb Raider, they shouldn't feel like an add-on.

You can hand-wave some of her weapons expertise based on the story-line saying she was trained some in weapons use.  It was a good game.  Uncharted games tend to be great games.

Well, yeah. Tomb Raider was only ever about raiding tombs for like 5 minutes back in 98. I'm sure there were maps in Uncharted. Doesn't sound very Uncharted to me. The main objective of Left 4 Dead was not to leave anyone for dead. Borderlands is on a planet with no nations and therefor no borders. Legend of Zelda? biatch doesn't do shiat but get kidnapped, what kind of shiatty legend is that? The legend of the castle with no locks and shiatty guards.

The last TR was great when it was just a bow and a pistol.  Once you got the assault rifle you pretty much had to pretend you didn't have it or the game was just a shooting gallery.

It's a decent semi-troll, but the argument is not about the title.  The core of Tomb Raider has always been about exploration and puzzle solving, with intermittent gunplay.  The latest iteration - as enjoyable as it was - was heavily focused on combat and guns, becoming more of an FPS than an action/adventure puzzle explorer.

And, perhaps you don't remember the 90's that well, but the original Tomb Raider game was ALL in tombs.  Peru (Qualopec), Atlantis (Tihocan), Egypt (Sphinx).

After hundreds of hours playing Skyrim and Oblivion with a bow, TR's bow was all to easy to headshot with over and over, especially with the "light up the enemy" feature.

The second half of the game is definitely combat heavy and that was pretty much my only gripe about the game. Well, that and the stupid "here's how to hunt a deer for survival, but you won't ever need to do it again" thing. There were still plenty of "traversal puzzles" where you needed to figure out how to get from where you were to where you needed to go, but yes, it needed much more in the puzzle department. They scratched the surface well. I hope the next one has much more depth in it's puzzles.

sprawl15: scottydoesntknow: Split screen or couch co-op.

Yeah, the software being limited by design isn't a fault of the platform. The good thing about the PC, though, is that people can sometimes make splitscreen co-op work anyway. LFD2, for example. The open-ness and versaltility of the platform definitely has it's benefits. Like custom patches that fix problems that the software devs never go around to fixing, etc. FO3 and FO:NV, for example, both have user made patches that fix left over problems the devs never did and also remove stupidness like mouse acceleration.

I has consoles (about 15 in total + all the games I've ever had from over the years) and a custom built gaming PC, btw. So I'm not biased. I grew up a console gamer and some games are just more fun with a controller.

2014-08-13 02:34:16 PM  
Just got the TR reboot recently, and it's a pretty good game. Most of the things in it 'work', except for some quicktime events and a few one-time things. With that said, nothing ground shaking, I wouldn't call it a 'great' game. There isn't any point to many of the item pick ups, and the 'long escape' parts where things keep breaking on you and there's only one path don't work for me, but I suppose they're popular.

So assuming the sequel improves on most things I'm hopeful.

Jim from Saint Paul: I liked Tomb Raider.

I liked it a lot.

Since I am wavering on whether to get a One or a PS4


Me too, but I was wavering on whether to get a new system at all. As a happy 360 owner/player this announcement has put me at about 65% get an XBone, 35% get nothing.

pute kisses like a man: i played a video game on my computer on an airplane recently. i was also in first class, sipping on the champagne tears of the inconsolables.

/ felt like i was a slow 12 year old, but then, i thought, actually, this is awesome. unfortunately, i didn't have the audacity to bust out the mouse, because I was concerned for other passengers, so my choice of games was limited.


I played a game of Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri on a touchscreen on a 13 hour flight to Beijing once.

/Heck yeah.

I've got a bunch of buddies on One, so that won't hurt it chances either. Definetly not getting one till after the holidays.
