Shadow of the Tomb Raider on GSY

Shadow of the Tomb Raider on GSY

Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be out at the end of the way, but how about a treat? We were sent a review copy of the game on both Xbox One and PC and we have prepared a bunch of explanation videos in which we focus each time on something different. As it took us quite a lot of time to record them in 2 languages, we hope you'll enjoy watching them all.
Note: We haven't had time to complete the game yet due to all the coverage we had to get ready in time, so nothing we say about the game is completely final.

The requested URL /SofTR_PC_1440p_Crypts_and_Tombs_EN.mp4.torrent was not found on this server

The other .torrent files don't have that error, I only checked the english ones though.

Should be working now. My mistake, too many videos to process, was bound to screw up. :)

That good? I will not be watching any more footage, I want to keep that for when I play it myself. It will be on Xbox One X. So obviously not as good as PC. Should still be great.

Thanks a lot for the coverage and the great videos!!!

I'm with Moonwalker on this one, going in almost completely blind. Haven't watched any of the other trailers, with the exception of the E3 ones. But just the trailers, haven't watched gameplay videos or anything.

Gonna save the Torrent files to download and watch the videos after I've finished the game.

This year has been really amazing for games. After Dragon Quest 11 and Spider-Man, and now Shadow of the Tomb Raider, September is being really fantastic!

As far as environmental detail goes, he's not far off. The jungle and ruins looks really nice, and the atmospheric effects, especially the misty, greenish hue light scene look top notch.

Poor Lara, it got eclipsed by Spider-man this month.

It's not reviewing particularly amazing.

Which probably means its good.

There is NO game out there, that looks half as good as SotTR ... the LoD, assets, textures, ao etc. look gorgeous... especially on PC.

@ 4:50 that's what i'm talking about. sustains very solid gameplay visuals. can't wait to play this. in the meantime i'll finish my recent play-through of RoTR. to get into the mood for the third game.

Its insane how Uncharted 4 still manages to look superior to games coming 2 years later

Poor Naughty Dog, poor SCE Santa Monica... Impressive how a multiplatform Game Looks far more detailed and impressive than God of War and Last of US Part 2, nice Job Miss Croft

It looks good but the immature fanboy tone is not really justified. It's in the same league as the handful of other AAA titles being tossed around in here.

So now I'm an immature fanboy? Luckily I'll be turning 42 in 2 weeks maybe I'll get to be as mature as you are with all your knowledge and sensibility. Did I hurt your feelings in some way to deserve such a lame comment after the time I've spent playing the game and preparing the content you seem to take for granted? If you had the maturity you claim I lack, you'd get to know me before speaking, I'm probably the one person in the team to have criticized the previous 2 games, both in terms of visuals and gameplay.

Shadow of the TR is quite spectacular at times, especially on PC, mind you, and all I said was that they've improved the graphics and art a lot since Rise, not that they bested everyone else in the industry. I get that it is now forbidden to be enthusiastic, but I thought it was only a French thing. I said that because I've been playing the game for a while now, but well, you apparently know better than me. :)
Err. I think he was responding to people like galanose *shrugs*

Oh, it wasn't clear he didn't use the reply button so I figured he was reacting to the article itself. :x

My bad, really thought he was not happy with the praises I threw. Thanks for clarifying that.

der_ton, hopefully you'll forgive my mistake. In my defence I haven't been able to sleep much in the past few days because of the time I've spent preparing the videos. I feel all the more embarrassed than he actually has a point, no need to start a war with such comments.

Man I'm getting tired of seeing a new face every single game. Can't they just decide on one? I see she still has that pigeon toe'd walk animation. I'm still not impressed by the animation in this game but it looks good overall. There is still something lacking with the visuals. It's almost as if they rely on technical things to bring out the visuals rather than artistic. I don't think the artists are as good as ND but they are pretty capable of using technical aspects of the engine and the hardware to bring it up close to UC. If they could get the animations right and better interactions with the terrain it would be right up there with the best.

i mean i could be wrong, in which case your post is still valid. i just got the assumption he was talking about the likes of galanose and hippiestriumph.

always been my complaint. the team is clearly capable, but instead of throwing money at the same people (apparently this cost 100 million, over double that of U4) they need to go looking for better talent. namely writers and animators. they've been severely lacking in the last 3 games and if they ever want to swing Lara back towards being likable (because lets face it, she isn't in this reboot trilogy) they need someone who can pen a likable character arch. hell, hire Amy Hennig, wasn't she recently spat out of the EA machine recently?

i think a fundamental issue with this series though is that Lara's origin story never really deserved 3 entire games. there should have been the reboot game, and then some sort of 10 year time jump where we see a Lara that actually enjoys what she does rather than being forced into situations she doesn't want to be in. maybe then we could enjoy being in her presence and enjoy following her on her adventures. i'm so glad this trilogy is finally over though. i'm hoping we get a soft reboot next gen that's a lot better thought out.

    jmd749 @MrWhite: They don't, once calibrated correctly. (10 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I've heard OLED crushes black levels too much, so much that mid tone details get lost. (16 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @jmd749: OLED is king for watching movies, and especially if you sit off-center (1 Day ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @jmd749: FALD can be a bit hit and miss, depending on how many zones and how aggressive it's programmed to work. Like the Q8 that's got far fewer zones (causing glow around bright objects) (1 Day ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 I'm excited for you, that is a beast of a television, with far superior HDR performance than any OLED with minimal to no burn-in issues. :P (1 Day ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 When I got my OLED 2017 FALD panels were more expensive, it's good to see they've dropped in price. I'd probably have bought the same as you, cause tbf FALD with just under 500 zones is good for a 65" (1 Day ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 @Melmoth: 15ms latency is pretty good and 2K nits will make for some very good HDR viewing, though a higher electricity bill. :P Agreed, I play old games on my PC monitor to avoid burn in on my OLED. (1 Day ago)
