Is it just me or did those facial animations just look bad, like really bad?

Like the trailer, excited for the game, really hope they rethink the name.

"Rise of the Tomb Raider" is a pretty bad title. Shouldn't the first game be the "Rise of the Tomb Raider" since that was the origin story?

They look fine to me.

@white: Part of an origin, but had very little to do with her becoming a tomb raider.

Technically in the first one she was touted as becoming a "survivor"

I don't care about the title it's not really important - the first game was excellent so I'm really looking forward to this.

What's 'Holiday 2015' exactly? Christmas?

It's like they had a big list of titles and picked the worst possible one.

An odd trailer, but I liked the "first" game so I'm definetly interested in seeing more. Here's hoping for more semi-open areas and some fun traversal gadgets.

Before Black Friday 2015 I guess.

But we live in a world full of delays. I expect Q2 2016.

@white: not really because she wasn't raiding tombs she was surviving after a ship wreck and establishing herself as a character, this game is where she starts actually doing tomb raiding as we know it to be.

The first game was great. Hope that this one turns out just as well.

The faces seemed fine to me. The detail that I really liked was the scars and cuts on her hands when they showed the close up of them.

Interesting PTSD angle, considering everything the character went through last game. I wonder if they will play up on that at all, her alienation from other characters increasing as she becomes more "successful". Thinking back to the very first tomb raider games, before crystal dynamics, she appeared to live alone and isolated in that mansion, without much going on other than tomb raiding.

I'm excited for his game because I loved the gameplay, presentation, and atmosphere of the reboot. I just wished no one spoke because this writing is shit. Destiny? UGH.

Can't wait, Tomb Raider was my game of the year.

Bears have come a long way since the original, although these won't terrify me nearly as much.

Was not expecting the music from A Beautiful Mind to show up at E3 this year.

I'll play kick ass hot British chick simulator #2. I couldn't even be remotely bothered with any TR games before the last one, but that one was really solid. As long as this is any kind of step up from that game I'm sold.

I liked the reboot, so sure, why not.

Horrible title, though.

This time, Lara isn't afraid of causing some ludicrous gibs.

The therapist looked like Mister Toad and his wild ride is ... Through your feelings.

Maybe they can come up with some way to integrate either 'storm' or 'shadow' in the title through a DLC add-on.

To be fair, if it adds the therapist as a playable character in the multiplayer, they can call it whatever they want.

(If he is in the game, it's probably going to be the usual 'psycho-analyze to tell the audience what the character's feelings are' story crutch, but I'm secretly hoping it means they add in a little Shattered Memories-style branching storyline/unreliable narrator elements).

You don't become who you're meant to be until you start dual-wieldin' pistols, babe.

Great, I'm guessing we get to spend half the time reliving her memories, and the other half listening to a therapist.

Maybe I can finally get a psych evaluation that won't cost me more than $100 an hour.
