Rumour: Tomb Raider could be worse than Superman 64 and genocide

Andy Astruc lampoons the gaming press' penchant for baseless rumours and massive leaps in logic. "This is only the tip of the conspiratorial iceberg. Tomb Raider has been resting unscrutinised for far too long, the developers laughing and clinking champagne glasses full of money. There’s a lot of nasty, insidious stuff going on; you can tell because there’s no news, and that’s the number one indicator of news. Trust me, I’m a journalist. Surely you’ve seen all this and more for yourselves? Speak out! I’m off to put red circles on screenshots." (Crystal Dynamics, PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360)

worse than Superman 64? Is that even possible?

You have to think about this 'Opinion piece' by the quality of the website...

What the fuck is awesomeoutof10.com?...

Nothing can be worse than Superman 64, they're just aiming for traffic from shock-introductions.

As such, I'm rating their website shitty, for one, I heard the same thing for the new Hitman because for the hardcore fans, he's out of character a lot....which was somewhat true but even then was a good game. Now for them to say WORSE THAN SUPERMAN 64, this Person and site just basically made an impossible assumption just for hits....Weeeeellll they can go fuck themselves :D The game am sure will be taken with open arms like Farcry 3 or similar in my opinion.....the only true way is to wait and find out but, by what's been shown? I can't see how it could disappoint.

It's a satirical article. It's not meant to be taken literally.

How is this even a rumor. A rumor is about news, not opinions.

Superman 64 was AWESOME!

If you thought it was bad, something was wrong with YOU, son.

C'mon, you tell me that this vid isn't AWESOME!?

Worse then superman 64?? RIGHT
im still getting it.
AAACE5  +   921d ago
Doubtful! They have moved in a different direction than in the past. We didnt hear a lot about hitman until it was about to release and it turned out well.

Worse than genocide, I can understand. But worse than Superman 64? IMPOSSIBLE!

genocide is so funny.

/s
ThichQuangDuck  +   920d ago
The fact that the previewer compared it to Superman 64 and Genocide not having played it. Solely due to "lack of news" is an laughable attempt to get hits and to the top of n4g. Even as a rumor this should not be as high as it is

edit:

After reading this is all sarcasm and a joke article. I guess gaming needs an onion article every so often as well

But it'll still be better than Duke Nukem Forever *badum tish*
Snookies12  +   921d ago
Duke Nukem wasn't bad. People didn't even give it a chance because they were expecting the greatest thing ever. It was not, but it was a fun game regardless. I'm tired of hearing crap about the game when it really doesn't deserve a lot of it.

Lmao great article rating this site highly and this article is hilarious guys give it a read

Glad to see someone else got it!
Fishy Fingers  +   921d ago
Personally, I'll just wait and see how it turns out or gets reviewed. I seem to lack the foresight a lot of others have when it comes to unreleased, future games.

Besides the muppet jokes (way too random) it was kinda funny.

Edit: The real joke is watching people write serious replies to the headline.

I predict it won't be worse than Superman 64 but I still don't think the game will be worth shouting about. It'll be bargain bin a few months after release.

Rumor? You mean opinion? There is a huge difference.
dennett316  +   921d ago
It's a spoof article you dingbat, it says so in the text at the top of this page if you didn't even bother to read the actual article.

You're not alone of course, several others obviously just read the headline and commented without knowing a thing about the actual article. Or actually, perhaps they did read the other text and just didn't know what lampooning meant.

Either way, a fair few slow people on the comments section today.

No way, I've seen short gameplays here and there and IMO the game looks to be a great experience! Unlike what I've seen of Superman 64.

Well, kind sir, I think you might be trying to BS me...

Worst then Superman 64 O_O oh man i MUST get this Tomb Raider now and see for my self :D
PhoenixRising37  +   921d ago
yep, tomb raider could be worse than superman 64. and the last of us could be worse than leisure suit larry: box office bust! and metal gear solid ground zeroes could be worse than black ops declassified! /s
League_of_Draven  +   920d ago
The new Tomb Raider will definitely be garbage but that would be implying that it's a Tomb Raider game. This is nothing but a generic adventure shooter with "Tomb Raider" slapped on it. There is no swimming, it has regenerating health, and the "puzzles" are easily solved with magic vision. To top it all off they tacked on a multiplayer mode that looks even worse than the single player.

Superman64... I must of blanked out the last time I played it.
I still don't know how I woke up with my head in the stove.
Angels3785  +   920d ago
I dont think this guy realizes that even if they completely ripped us off and just sold us a disk with a bunch of the trailers and gameplay we've seen so far......it would still be WAY better and have more entertainment value than Superman 64.......

Worse than Superman 64? Nah that can't be possible.
shotgun_ps3  +   920d ago
I'm probably going to get sleighted for this but what the hell. I'm really not excited about this game because I am a PS3 gamer and a big fan of Uncharted and Naughty Dog. Now, I know this game is very different to Uncharted, but visually it just looks to much like it. The multiplayer even looks the same as Uncharted's. If I just owned an 360, I'd be losing sleep over excitement. But sadly I don't, I just own a PS3.
black911  +   920d ago
I knew this when it was demonstrated at the Microsoft E3 Press Conderence instead of Sony. Same situation when I saw RE6 commercials on TV and 360 had exclusive DLC. I knew the game was gonna suck. Just call it a lucky guess
