VG247: Crystal Dynamics’ art director Brian Horton has been talking about creating the new Lara Croft for Tomb Raider, where she isn’t going to be seen as a “sex object” as far as the studio is going.
Man I hope this turns out well!
I do too. It sounds great, but i hope it delivers!
presentation of lara croft as a sex symbol is one of the most iritating aspects of that series seriously, it is just a female character, not your possible sex partner - iam not talking to you forbidden darkness, but generally :) i am glad crystal dynamics got it - it is the first step for new tomb raider game to be serious and potencially good adventure game
This is actually kind of a disappointment. They should be making her a new type of sexy or something, because Lara Croft IS a sex symbol. I guess the KEYWORD Though is "sex object", because I never saw her that way. Thats a bit crude and sexist. lol
“Lara Croft as a sex object isn’t our goal.” Umm.. she always has been. That's how got interested in purchasing this game in the first place. Finding out the game was awesome came a tad bit later. I miss the days when CORE interactive held the IP. -End of Line
Well i dont miss it . never was a fan . But i can understand the feeling .. i would be an hypocrite if i didnt , after complaining (for the right reasons) how the upcoming DmC got nothing to do with the serie
So you would have rather had a couple more Angel of Darkness' then Tomb Raider: Legend, Anniversary, and Underworld? Wow. Look man, I am a huge fan of Tomb Raider I-III but after that the series really started to show it's age. Some people would argue that happened at II even.
Either you haven't played the CD developed games, or you miss the days of PS1 exclusivity.
good! make the game a success because of its storyline and gameplay, not because the chick has huge polygon bewbies
Well then...it looks like they finally understand.
Awww, I wanted her boobs to be so big that they took up 3/4 of the screen. Imagine endlessly dying because her massive rack was obstructing everything.
This industry, indeed all media, needs more strong female lead characters. Lara Croft is probably the best candidate for that.
Finally! Just make it a good game!
This is what Tomb Raiders creator originally wanted, but Edios never listened so he left Core. So it's a good thing they're back on track.
No need to worry Lara looks like a dude now.
you are kidding right?
The woman is a psychopath! She kills everything! We've only asked for three things from a Tomb Raider game: Boobs, Guns, and Exploration. Now how bloody difficult is it to make a good game out of that?
thats because are her old fans are grown up
I would still bang her. Look at how hot she is in those pics. AND THOSE BOOBIES Yummy
coming from someones pic who.... sigh nvm :P
If they successfuly pull this off, it might rival the uncharted series. Yess more quality games.
ahh, i dont know i think that picture of her on the cover of Game Informer was a bit more attractive than all the other lara croft renditions. you know her being all dirty and determined....
Oh really!Aren't you the guyz who developed the last few saucy titles and degraded lara croft to the level of Dead or Alive perversion???
But do they have really a say in the matter ? They were basically forced by Eidos into pluging the hole and Tomb raider duties . I think they were pretty happy working on their own Legacy of Kain ip or new stuff . Imo , that's actually the first tomb raider that screams that is it their very own project ... rather than churning the same out of touch stuff .
Baka-akaB, to be fair they've made more improvements to the game when Legend came out than Core ever thought about during the whole 90s era.. Not to mention the fantastic job at TRA, that remake was even better than the original. CD also said TR is pretty much the most important franchise for them, and the one they basically identify themselves with.
I'm glad, i could care less about the fucking sex appeal. I want an enjoyable game.
I'm looking at the current game informer and she actually looks like a believable character .. never been too much of a TR fan but this looks good....for now
They wanna make a game about a sex symbol without making it sexy? This is like a Ninja Gaiden without all the exaggerated blood and gore! Can you even imagine that?! Oh, wait... Hmm, I'll just wait for Uncharted 3 instead. There's way to many good stuff being released in 2011 and I'm kind of short on cash.
won't stop people from making nude patches for the game, I don't think there was a single Tomb Raider game without a nude patch...
