BOOOOOOOOLD

That whole thing with different people saying "I am..." to the camera in black and white seems more appropriate for a cancer awareness PSA than a video game ad.

Also, I am Spartacus.

That was a pretty bad launch trailer.

I'm so on board for this game. Uncharted with a dash of Far Cry 3 and horror thrown in? Yep. Yep yep yep.

Looks like another day at work to me.

The island is a metaphor! For cancer.

I don't want to BE Lara Croft. I want to protect her because obviously she can't do jack without the help of a man. XD

That was cheap and easy. This "Lara is weak and you should feel like you care for her" promo just doesn't click for me.

Specially after listening to the last GB Podcast.

Oh this would have been a good trailer if it was just Lara saying all that stuff..now it's just really awkward

Isn't it the opposite? They're not saying the players are caring for her, they're saying the players are her. This is directly confronting the dumb "Men just can't relate to female main characters!" argument. I don't know that it's an effective trailer, necessarily, but at least they're trying to address these things.

Nope. Not Lara Croft. Look somewhere else.

Spoilers: Lara Croft becomes a hooded vigilante after surviving the island.

With this newly-found knowledge that we are all Lara Croft, I refuse to play Tomb Raider on the grounds that I do not want to see myself and everyone here die gruesomely hundreds of times.

I have to agree though, that trailer just felt cheap, forced, and maybe a bit desperate.

I have a feeling this game will be good (possibly even great), but this has had even worse marketing than Far Cry 3 did.

Edited by Efesell

This trailer seems a bit uninspired but I'm still fuckin stoked to play this game, it looks great.

Thanks man. Hope you don't die gruesomely too bro.

Good god that was a terrible trailer. So ridiculous, did they seriously think anyone gets this into a videogame as to identify with the over-actors in this?

Edited by Hef

This is the stupidest trailer I've seen in a loooong time.

Posted by Zleunamme

That was a bad trailer. I bet half the people who appeared in that commercial have never played a video game before. If guys were Lara Croft. They would move her to a corner or environment geometry and rotate the camera to get a better view of her treasure chest.

Brad mentioned on the bombcast that they can't show game play footage until it comes out. If you stop by Game Informer, they show fifteen minutes of it. Conan O'Brien did a bit on his show. It's lame that certain publishers will let certain outlets show stuff but not Giant Bomb.

Also, I am Spartacus.

Posted by golguin

It's kinda funny that the Conan video convinced me to play the game day 1.

Posted by JaredA

Well, that was bad.

Posted by Meepasaurus

People who play video games sure are intense.

Posted by Ghost407

MEH.

Posted by squidraid

I don't even have words for how bad this is.

But man, why do this, SimCity, and Heart of the Swarm have to come out within a week of each other!

Edited by JamesKond

Why "I'm Lara Croft" and not "I'm Tomb Raider"?

Seems like a missed opportunity

this game is clearly a metaphor for male dominance, and that a female can only be strong if a male has led her through her troubles . its not 'we are all lara croft' its, 'we all control lara croft but we just arent allowed to get our tips wet because shes a video game character'

Posted by Majkiboy

All this is saying to me is: "Please don't buy this". And you know what? I will listen, I won't buy this.

Posted by Dagbiker

I hope everyone who cried about Lara being a woman and getting hurt are happy. Instead of a trailer with some dubstep and perhaps an explosion, and a witty comment at the end. We have this piece of crap dumped on our chest.

I'm going to forget this video and stay excited for this game.

Posted by earl_swanky

Oh man, all of these people in the trailer are capital A ACTING!!!

Posted by civid

I don't want to play videogames anymore -.-'

...Then again, the old lady at around 1:20 who said "COURAGEOUS!" did crack me up... Alright videogames, I'm back in

I trust anyone with the Doctor as their avatar!! I'm also pretty excited about this, too. I don't get all of the hate this has gotten.

Posted by Jedted

Dude @1:18 looks like someone who shouldn't be playing Tomb Raider.

Edited by demontrace

Omg one of the worst trailers I've ever seen. The people doing the voice overs are the worst!

Posted by Bestostero

Nathan Drake is way sexier

Posted by TechDJ

I suddenly have the urge to get Mentos....

Posted by AutoBarn

So bad!

"There's a survivor in all of us". So they have basically re-appropriated Call of Duty's tagline? Joining Aliens: Colonial Marines in the new trend of launch trailers that veer off in a horribly cornball direction.

Oh, and this whole game reminds me of 'Primal' on the PS2.

Edited by CaptRocketblaze

When the devs are perceived to be sexist at trade shows, switch it up with an empowerment ad campaign!

It's getting hard to separate the game from the clowns trying to sell me on it.

The estate tax.

Posted by Slaps2

This trailer was so fucking lame, that I couldn't handle more than twenty seconds. This is one of the most pathetically awkward launch trailers I've ever scene.

Posted by m0nty

I am Nathan Drake, shit... no wait... ah crap.

Once more from the top please guys?
