    Picked this up today. I'm not too far in but simply...it's fucking great. The controls are spot on, the graphics are indulgent, the story in enthralling. Lara is a person now, not a super character. Her strength comes from necessity, not years of knowledge built into confidence.

    As you can tell, I'm loving it.

    Except when you're actually playing her, and she's a brutal killing machine. Watching a review, some of those killing blows shows a huge contrast to the weepy, vulnerable moments.

    What I liked about the original game is the learning curve was very short for controlling her, so you coukd play the game. Too many button combinations fuck me up. Forget fighting or sports games, I just can't.

    I wouldn't know about that. The only way i can kill right now is with a gun and bow.

    And she is supposed to be trained, just not tried at all.

    Not so much cleve, though a little, but wet skin hugging.

    They give a few down the shirt angles.

    Play the witcher 2. First minute of the game you get tits, they know their audience.

    No, but she does get impaled by just about everything in the environment when you die in the game. I'm not even joking. My favorite death pseudo-cut scene is Lora getting impaled by a tree branch.

    Only if you call your dick "The Tree Branch". Writing it on the shaft with a Sharpie should suffice.

    I beat the game last week. Great game but zero replay value, no new game plus mode or bonus for playing through a second time.


    The guy who makes the mass effect scenes with in-game 3D models gets quite creative.
