My prayers have been answered. I wanted this announcement so much! I hate that title though.

It is a bit crap, but it could have been worse. Like Tomb Raider: Reckoning or Tomb Raider: Dawn of Justice Tomb Raiding

Title could use some work, although honestly, after calling the reboot just "Tomb Raider"..eh its a step in the right direction, at least its not just "Tomb Raider 2" so they can continue to confuse the audience about previous games in the series. Still i suppose it sort of fits if this is the game where Lara Croft actually becomes Lara Croft, tomb raiding, treasure hunting and all.

Other than that, 2015..long wait and this better not be some "exclusive" thing.

A-D.:
this better not be some "exclusive" thing.

It's going to be as exclusive as The Witcher 3. Meaning that it will be available on at least 3 systems at the same time.

By this i mean timed-exclusive or "platform exclusive DLC" etc, the whole usual spiel that annoys the crap out of me. I sincerely doubt its going to be Xbox exclusive given its Square we're talking about here. But yeah the whole timed-exclusive stuff is worse when you have to wait X months or whatever to play with the same stuff the others already have.

Also, cut the stupid Multiplayer out and dont do the same shitty DLC again, then we're golden.

I'm so happy!
I'M SO HAPPY!!!!

cannot wait for Rise of the Tomb Raider

"rise of the tomb raider"?
Got to admit I laughed out loud when I heard that. I'm sure the game will be good though.

They really missed the opportunity to call this "The Tomb Raider Rises". I'm going to wait for gameplay to see whether I'm hyped or not like most of the new game announcements at the conference.

YEEEEES!

Oh, thank you, thank you! It's going to be a long wait though...

The first game was a barrel of monkeys for me. Can't wait!!!

Hopefully this isn't "Torture Lara 2: Quick Time Bugaloo"

I have to admit, I was hoping that next Tomb Raider will feature a more confident and cocky Lara like she used to be in the old games. But it looks like she's not there yet. I'm still excited though.

loved the first one on PS3 and hope this one will be just as amazing..who wants to bet it will be 1080p on PS4 and 720p on xbone like every other multi-platform game, lol

Seriously, fuck modern games' naming conventions. That isn't Tomb Raider 2.

ToastiestZombie:

Or "Tomb Raider Raids Again."

Rise of the Planet of the... Tomb Raider.

Also, time travel 'n shit. Did I mention APE Lincoln?

I, for one, cannot wait for Rise of the Tomb Raider: Lara Croft v. PTSD: Dawn of Justice. Bring it on.

Tomb Raider was the best game in the series. That is saying a lot, all things considered. Reboots can very rarely pull that off these days.

That being said, for the love of god. That title, man.

Why is she wearing a hood while talking to a psychologist?

Personally I think that's good. You don't go through shit like she did in the first game and come out 'okay'. There are far too many protagonists in games these days that just shrug those sort of things off with 'meh' or 'I MUST HAVE REVENGE!' reactions.

Also I hope they drop the bow (to a certain extent, it had its place as a weapon of convenience in the reboot after all), and give Lara her true signature weapons back.

Xyebane:

To try and be mysterious until the 'big reveal'. Either that or she became a chav between games and has her hood up whenever she isn't drinking cheap cider and spitting on things. It would have worked just as well if they had not shown her at all or showed her out of focus and from behind. Especially since anyone who didn't watch the announcement live knows what the reveal is by the name of the video...

So the psychiatrists realises she's an out and out psychopath, right? She cold head shotted that dude!
(Sure, it's bonus XP, but still...)

I imagine it was to hide the scratches and cuts, did you see those hands!

Great announcement, horrible title.

Great announcement. I really liked the Tomb Raider reboot.
The first decent Tomb Raider since... well Tomb Raider for me.

I'm glad that Lara didn't come away from her first adventure completely fine. The stuff she went through (falling into a pool of blood and body parts, the constant fighting and killing) and the magical stuff she saw should cause a normal girl like her to have some real mental issues.

I'm more than a little disappointed that she just shoots that one guy in the head. That doesn't seem like something Lara, or at least Lara this early in her life, would do. Granted, she was slaughtering people left and right in the first game, but here...I don't know, I think I need more context for me to understand why she did something so out of character for her.

So why are they gonna make a sequel for such an un-profitable game?

I REALLY am not looking forward to more whining and moaning about the sequel not making record sales in the first week of release. Or read their complaints for another year about how terrible an idea it was to make another one cause they lost so much money and then watch them do a silly about-face when their magic line is crossed and they can announce "hurdy hurr is our mos bes-selling game...whoda thunk games keep seling and making money over long turm, hurrdy hurr".

Nyeh, I know it isn't a popular opinion, but I didn't really like the reboot all that much. Based on pure nostalgia factor, give me a remake of Last Revelation. Stupid Werner accent and all.

i thought Rising had been banned in game titles! DAMN IT!

Last year's game was the first triple-A game I've enjoyed in quite a long time (indeed, I haven't played a decent AAA game since), so I'm pretty excited about this.

I feel like I'm the only person who quite likes the title, but oh well.

Pickaxe catches on to rock at the absolute last possible second cliche.

Then Lara randomly replies to something her psychiatrist asked her long ago(presumably), while alone in a cave.

Xyebane:

Clearly Lara joined the league of assassins. Don't pretend like it wouldn't explain a lot.

Lara v Croft: Dawn of Tomb Raiding
Tomb Raiding: Revengence
Lara Croft: Raiders Among Us

I dunno, i think that title's really stupid, but i'm pretty excited about a follow-up to the previous game (which was awesome). Hey, a dumb and generic title didn't stop Shadows of the Damned from being a good game.

Absolutely pleased that they're pushing the PTSD angle, as they should. This reveal was awesome watching it live.

How good could it be? The other game has barely even been out. They can't have spent much time working on it..

Mr Ink 5000:

New generation, so I guess the rules reset.

Looks cool, but damn, that is a dumb ass title.
