The Tomb Raider 2 fan game is wow!

We've been following the development of Tomb Raider The Dagger of Xian, a Tomb Raider 2 remake by a French fan, for a while, but sadly couldn't manage to download the recent demo as all our attempts to do so remained vain. Thanks to Sdarts, I finally put my hands on the game and, as a long time fan longing for a return to Lara's true roots, I must say I am impressed. First of all, the game looks gorgeous, but more importantly, it brings back Tomb Raider to what it was, a game in which you had to read the environment to figure out where to go, a game where you could die if you failed a jump. The original combat system is also back, which won't please everyone as the wildlife of the demo seems particularly upset with Lara. I really hope the project will be achieved someday and that it won't be shut down because of some copyrights issues. I even think Square-Enix would be well-advised to support the game's developer because this is looking more promising than many of the official remakes we've seen in the past few years.

    Moonwalker However where it says 21DX on this guy's laptop it says 21UQ on the site. But specs wise it's exactly the same. (2 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker @Melmoth: The one site that shows a price of the laptop with the same specs says last known price was 367 euros. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the APU in it is from 2016, so it's a recent model. But if you don't manage to sell it for atleast 100 euro, you're in the red. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Melmoth: Yeah I have a hard time finding out more details. It's not for sale at any shops anymore. The guy says it's less than a year old. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Melmoth: But on the other hand there's no guarantee I will get a nice price for it but i will be without an Xbox. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Moonwalker: see if you can find out the price of the Acer. It seems like it's a fairly recent model, possibly current model. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Melmoth: I could still do the deal though, and try to sell that Acer. Highest bid for my OG Xbox One is now 100 euros. (2 Hours ago)
