In The First Minutes Of Tomb Raider, Lara Sticks Stuff up Her Tomb

GG3 picks up an unintentional quirk in the reboot of Tomb Raider. This rendition that wants to cling to more realism must've flaked when it realized it had no item storage space. Luckily necessity is the mother of invention. (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360)

A little disrespectful if you ask me, as plenty of other games do the same thing with male characters and no one has ever said anything about it really.

I guess no other would want people to know that they couldn't keep their eyes off Old Snake's ass in MSG4, as that dude was carrying was carrying enough rations on him to rival your local convenience store. Where does he keep those cardboxes, and that drum barrel that he rolls around in sometimes? hmmm?

Cmon guys, a little more class...

The cardboard box is clearly foldable.
Cupid_Viper_3  +   947d ago
I'm really unsure if you're being sarcastic or not actually, I hope you are, lol.

have you ever seen what a folded cardboard box of the same size looks like?

I hope they let us have bigger inventory in the game as Lara can obviously carry twice as many items as Snake.

So is the author 8 or 9 years old?

It's like one of those kids who tell themselves that they're adults now due to their age #, but they act like children and giggle about childish things that at most is a bloody common thing in games. Infinite pocket-space and things like HMM, WHERE DOES SOLID SNAKE PULL OUT ALL THESE GUNS FROM?! HIS ASSSSSSSSS?!/111 No.

Just like his Bandana can give him infinite ammo or Gordon Freeman can carry over 15 different weapons ontop of a crowbar and rocket launcher.

but WHOAOaooaAaA because a FEMALE DOES IT! She clearly didn't shove it in her Void-sized pockets/pouches, lets get giggly with it and say we shoved it up her v**ina.

To the guy who made this article? Clearly, Grow the fuck up :/
SilentNegotiator  +   946d ago

Yes. That's why he wears tights. With a butt fly.

I'm pretty sure someone has made a joke about magically disappearing weapons going up a male character's butt. But hey, don't let me stop the high horse club from turning this into a sexism issue.

Perfect example of the type of garbage commonly approved by N4G. The land where opinion, rumor and trolling articles are hotter topics than actual game news. This place is in dire need of a new system. But hey Think I'll start a rumor and post it here and watch the fanboys and trolls have at it. Now thats HOT

I think everyone should have less of a problem with the guy who wrote this article, and more of a problem with the people who approved it.

That image and thus showing Old Snakes' ass has scarred me for life.

Just because it is a female.. How immature. Tons of games do the same crap but no let's just joke about her shoving objects up her vagina..

Funny I can be banned from this site for saying stuff like this and actually have been before yet this is approved..?

"Just because it is a female" - Weird you would state that and then not justify the differentiating reason. Also, you'll want to change "it" to "this person/character/etc" if you want to refer to a human third party. Females are not in the "it" range; they're people.

"Females are not in the "it" range; they're people."

Dear lord, Sir. If you start saying things like that, they'll want the vote. It's a slippery slope - A SLIPPERY SLOPE.
Cryptcuzz  +   947d ago
I agree with everything you are saying but that is such a trivial thing to put him on blast for.

Sure its frowned upon to refer someone as an it, but did you think for once that English might not be his native language?

If he had said what he said and meant to refer females as an it, then sure be mad, but we don't know that for a fact.

I think we shouldn't be so sensitive about things like this since its the internet, on a gaming website and not some politically correct debate of worldwide importance.

This article is doing this for sh"ts and giggles and I'm kinda offended since I like Lara as a character and the new games is sweet.

In knowing that, I don't have the time to be mad about every little article that is either trolling, doing it for fun, flame baiting etc.

We cannot change what anyone does with their time. We can only choose to either participate, do something else, or ignore the type next time around.

Is this really something that you're gonna put him on blast for? Chill out, bro. I'm sure he meant nothing by it. Jeez...

So you're perfectly fine with submitting- and likely WRITING- an article that can only exist because of juvenile immaturity, but can't cut somebody slack on what is most likely just an error in writing?

Wow, Really? I had to read this title twice to make sure i was reading it correctly. Is there an age limit on the authors who can post articles?

hahaha...no. Many games do this and its not funny at all. Period.
KillrateOmega  +   946d ago
...This is seriously one of the stupidest things that I've ever read. No, really, it's like this was written by an 8 yo. And you know that this was only written because she's a woman.

So immature.

And that's why she was using a backpack in the previous games. Even though some items were even too big for that, but I started to imagine it like this bag from the Harry Potter books/movies xD

I was hoping that she'd find that backpack in the game, but she doesn't :/

Obligatory reminder of the voice actor for this game. You're welcome.


There's also one of her getting it on with some 40-50yr old bald guy if you want to google it. There's a 30 rock joke in there somewhere...

Stay classy Square Enix.

Passing on this game myself. Trashy voice actor kinda kills the game for me. What better way to say the game won't just be about tits than to use her as the voice! And to be clear, I love tits, I just don't need it all up in my face in my games.

And Uncharted blows Tomb Raider out of the water when it comes to raiding tombs.... It's not even close.

But i'm really surprised they didnt put Lara Croft in Playstation Allstars! She seems like a nobrainer to me.

G I R L P O W E R! lol.

idk maybe i'll check it out if it goes dirty cheap. =)

She did a role in Californication, so what. Besides that she's also had roles in True Blood, Grey's Anatomy and William and Kate. I mean if she's good enough to be allowed by the British Royalty to approve her for the role of their princess, she's highbrow enough to play Lara.

+ I think the voice acting etc. is done rather well.

I can't believe I just read that absolute nonsense.
Yukicore  +   946d ago
I agree to this article, in all other games this aspect is realistic, wait...

just wait, moment of silence... for magical pockets.
KaBaW  +   946d ago
Two stories, and already got a down vote.
SanMarco  +   946d ago
I'd raid her tomb any day.
Britainz-Fin3st  +   946d ago
Saw the advert for this last night, it doesnt seem like Tomb Raider... I think the franchise has had it.

I had so much fun when i was little playing with my dad reading the walkthroughs for tomb raider and tomb raider 2 but everyone since has sucked big time
deanobi  +   946d ago
How was this approved?!

Oh wait I know...
