...and now to watch this interview.

Posted by rjayb89

Work that mic, Patrick.

Posted by solidwolf52

Is anyone else just getting the still frame with audio?

Posted by RanmaRanma

Is Ron drunk?

Posted by csl316

Still my most anticipated game. I liked the past 3 Tomb Raiders and wasn't too sure about their new direction. But screw it, it looks awesome and Crystal Dynamics knows what it's doing. I'm in.

NO TIME FOR COMMAS

I didn't realise it was an origin story. I kinda liked the previous one with her as a young girl stowing away on one of her fathers archealogical boats to then get to a supernatural island and has the most darkest moment in any Tomb Raider game with the hanging corpse and that island tormenting her. I thought it was one of the most memorable and interesting part of the series so inda bummed that's the part they are re-writing. Whatever though, this looks great and the arc of Lara as a chracter seems interesting - definitely a game I am keeping a watch on.

Why is Ron looking at Patrick like he is some kind of douche bag in the preview image?

It looks like he's imagining dirty things looking at Patrick's mouth and his mic.

He definitely says Laura and not Lara...

Posted by TheVGamer

I just realized that Patrick looks like an elf. He has those ears, those elvish ears, fair elvish skin and obviously he's the slender, elvish body type. Everything except his hair makes him a good elf.

PATRICK. IT'S LARA. LARA. L A R A. LARA. Jesus.

Patrick Patrick Patrick... It's LARA, not LAURA arghhh

Posted by FoolishChaos

Ron seems pretty uncomfortable in front of the camera. Still, did a pretty good job I think.

As someone whose only experience with Lara Croft was playing a ps1 demo over and over again when I was like 8, I am actually kind of looking forward to this game.

She's British, so Laura is fine.

Posted by stenchlord

lol scoops. Great interview, asked some really good questions. I enjoyed that he called Lara, Laura. Felt like Ron was trying to push home that it was Lara without being rude and it made the interview amusing.

Above anything else, this will be my must buy PC game of next year.

There's no "u" in Lara, Patrick. She's been around for 16 years so it's time to say her name correctly.

Posted by daltimond

What do you say to a Lara Croft with two black eyes? Nothing because you've clearly beat the new Tomb Raider.

Edited by Kill

After the third time Patrick caledl Lara "Laura Croft", even after the developer subtly corrected him, I had to stop watching. How sure of your own bullshit do you have to be to continue on with your own faux pas in front of someone who KNOWS this character, even after they correct you? I know it's probably an accent thing, but it's not hard to accept that you were wrong and correct your pronunciation.

@Kill: You sir, are a giant fool...wow.

Posted by SpikeDelight

I love how video game fans cling to the pronunciation of "Lara Croft" like it's a sacred ritual, and anyone who makes one mistake is immediately exiled from the club

Posted by Rongaryen

Patrick saying Laura instead of Lara wasn't that big a deal. It looked more like Ron was uncomfortable about the interview more than he was annoyed at Patrick adding a u to her name.

Sure..but there's also the fact that some people commenting here might actually be working for Square-Enix Europe and, just like the developper being interviewed in the video, actually know the name of an iconic character that's been around for 15+ years.

I mean...the guy from Crystal Dynamics actually says it the proper way 5-6 times during the interview and Patrick still doesn't catch on his mistake.

Anyway, in the end who cares, it's a small thing. It's just something that's been bugging me for years and I never even understood where people got it that she was named Laura. Her name has been Lara since the beginning and it's even on the box cover!

Posted by ThePantheon

@katanalauncher: Those are 2 different names. Lara has always been Lara, I know Laras, and I know Lauras. Also, when in the 16 years has she ever been known as Laura? SORRY DUDE.

Edited by Kill

@charliedown: It's my own pet peeve when it comes to the Tomb Raider franchise. I guess I should have kept quiet and not voiced my 'foolish' opinions. It's not a big deal, just not something I can keep hearing in an interview without some annoyance. No point in continuing to watch something if you get no enjoyment out of it.

Posted by TripMasterMunky

That seemed like a kinda of weird interview. I don't know what it was, it just wasn't there.

Posted by me3639

Now that's reporting. Loved hearing when he was comparing John Mcclain to Lara. Nice job Scoop.

'So why are you making such a fucking piece of shit game? And what's with all the moaning and raping?' - What I would've asked.

Posted by Mr48

So glad to hear they got a mandate to make"the best game they could make". As if anyone ever gets a mandate to make a shitty game.

Posted by phrosnite

Awesome game. I can't wait to play it. Woot woot

You're thinking about it the wrong way. They were told to make the best game they could because Square Enix has a lot riding on this game. The franchise hasn't been doing what Square needs it to do. The previous games haven't sold or been received well enough. So Square told them to do whatever it is they need to do to fix that. I thought it was fairly obvious that it was being implied that they need this game to sell and be well received, so the developers better damn well make the best possible game they can. If this game doesn't do well, someone is getting fired/shut down.

Yea, Patrick would totally be able to keep getting interviews like this and keep his job by being a completely close minded asshole. You've seen what, 5 minutes of the game and you've already made up your mind? Video game fans are the fucking worst. Why did you even click on this video if you've already decided Tomb Raider is a "fucking piece of shit game?"

Which is why you'd be terrible at that job.

a) how is that a "piece of shit game" and how can you judge one way or the other? not liking their direction is one thing but that line of thinking is just ...no.

b) so you're perfectly quiet when you're falling, getting hit by stuff, get stabbed? Nathan Drake does the exact same thing and nobody cares because he's a guy. this reaction is just idiotic.

c) there is not a single piece of media out there that shows anything in terms of "raping".

Your reaction seems to be purely based on unreasonably negative feelings because it's a darker take on the series.

Exactly. This seems like a knee-jerk reaction from someone who was probably too young to have even played the first Tomb Raider. I mean, how dare they show Lara Croft in any sort of compromising situation. Why give her a decent reason for trying to survive when you can just throw bears and monkeys at as she traverses endless caves and cliff edges.

Posted by ildon

That dude seems so uncomfortable being interviewed. And "we were given the mandate to make the best possible game" is industry code for "we were given a massive budget and a generous development window." It is definitely the case that sometimes a studio is given a game to work on without this "mandate" and given a shoestring budget, very limited time, and is just expected to shit out an uninteresting sequel to make some quarterly earnings report.

Laura.

Posted by Rebel_Scum

This guy is baked.

So is Patrick with the Laura this and Laura that.

Posted by dropabombonit

This game looks better every time I see it, can't wait until March

Posted by Cubic

You can see this guy starting to question whether or not she's actually called Lara by the end, or if he's just been mistaken all these years and all of Crystal Dynamics have been laughing at him behind his back. You're a real mindfuck, Patrick.

Good thing you weren't the interviewer then.

Posted by LegendaryChopChop

Looks so fucking good. Can't wait for this one.

Edited by dcgc

Laura? AHAH Oh man...
EDIT: 05:04 Correcting Patrick in a very subtle way, nice.

Posted by smiddy

Excited about this game. It's looking great. I'm liking the trend of games getting away from over the top, non stop killing to every kill meaning something and being a struggle.

"Laura Croft" is something that completely baffles me. How do people still not know her name after so many years!

At least other mispronounced games like Recettear have some kind of underlying reason (people not knowing that Recette has a soft C), but with Lara Croft, there's nothing even resembling a 'u' in her name!

Posted by Christoffer

He looks like he need some serious sleep.

Really looking forward to the game, btw.

Lara Lara Lara Lara Lara Lara Lara LARA! LARA Croft, jeez

Posted by akzo

I've read enough articles and seen enough trailers, interviews and game play clips of this title for 1000 life times.  At this point I would like to just play the game (if it gets a positive reception, if not then I could care less). 
 
And give Patrick some slack.  I played TR 1 on the PS1, and I usually say Laura.  Possibly because I'm American.
