Tomb Raider details - Lara wont be able to swim and there's regenerating health
From: jammies | #103I know a guy that got shot 8 times recently and lived with fairly small damage(bleeding lung). Anyway, Lara's health should be realistic you know? Shot a few times, die or spend a long time in the hospital followed by months of rehab.
Wait, on second thought...
I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.
Also, the hunting is for food and upgrade skill points.
Think of how pointless Yakuza would be with all that food and stuff you collect and buy if it had auto regen. It doesn't.

Removing swimming is still an absurdly stupid move. It's Tomb Raider. You don't take out swimming. And you're on an island of all places and the developers themselves have stated survival is the main premise. Why take out swimming if you have that in mind? It's pure laziness. They better take the criticism they get for removing it hard and make damn sure they bring it back without removing anything else that critical in the next TR game. There's no excuse for why swimming isn't in this game.
My stance on this exactly. And what people don't seem to understand is, having the swimming option in the game does not mean automatically that there is going to be a swimming level, going underwater, opening levers and stuff like that (which are typically what a swimming level involves and is just thrown in by many devs, which leads to a crappy level). The best example I can think of for a level made great because swimming was available (recently) is Uncharted 3's shipyard level. That level was so dynamic because you were able to swim, there were just so many more ways to tackle the situation and it added a lot of variety.

Look, its clear this game is basically going to be Tombraider- Uncharted edition, which isn't really a bad thing.Do you mind actually explaining how this game looks anything like Uncharted? Because the majority of the time people say this crap it turns out they've never played a TR game before.

The game could still employee an injury and eating system where you lose max health potential, and get groggy/slow if you don't eat or patch up wounds.
Yeah, I imagine that something similar to the system in MGS3 wouldn't be so bad.
If you can read this,
You don't need glasses.
Health Regen means no buy for me. I hate that crap.
Yeah same here. it's not realistic having health regen.

LionheartCJ posted...Are there any action/shooter games that DON'T use regenerating health these days?, serious question....
Serious Sam 3. It is that manly.
But I get your point, it seems to be a thing of the past.
Fallout 3 isn't Oblivion with guns, it's Fallout 3 with Guns.
Who likes swimming sections in games anway? Almost no one.
You have Tomb Raider fans complaining about the removal of swimming sections and now all of a sudden no one likes them because you said so.
A birther, a creationist, an anti-vaxxer, and a conspiracy theorist walk into a bar. They are the same person.
No swimming? just means there won't be water levels. Who likes swimming sections in games anway? Almost no one.
i do at least in TR since they were always good
Swann:This is the last time.I'm tired of running damage control every time he makes a mess
Campbell:Right.You're the control,and if that fails,I'm the damage
Wow that'd be strange. I guess I'll keep an open mind about it. Tomb Raider has been going stale a bit lately so hopefully if it's a unique experience, I'll still enjoy it. Got to really finish that HD trilogy off. I'm burnt out on Tomb Raider games atm.
