No Tomb Raider: Legend US Delay

Firing Squad has spoken with Eidos Interactive who assured them that the U.S. edition of Tomb Raider Legend is not delayed from its expected April 11 release. This follows up on a story on Xboxic (that spread quickly after being dugg by Digg) that reported the game's U.S. release for PCs was being delayed while nipple textures are removed. They show a nude breast texture purported to be from the game, saying they were unused, but played a role in the development of characters other than the game's busty heroine. They offer some sort of explanation for why the textures could never actually be applied in the game (huh?), though no source for any of this information is offered. The reassurances about this that FiringSquad received from Eidos were specifically about the U.S. edition mentioned in the original story, but the spokesperson they contacted could not speak for the European editions of the game.

Excellent demo.

I was really surprised by the quality of it.

Oh yes, and for all the people who haven't tried this one due to the past 34230948230948 versions sucking major monkey balls. Your going to be missing out on a great game. They really did a great job on this and I guess that's all inpart to the new developer. The puzzles are lots of fun this time around, the action is about right, and they reworked the control scheme which is what really put the nail in the coffin in the past sequels. The graphics are outstanding even without High End Content enabled, though when it's enabled, Lara looks like the butterfly chick from the Nvidia technology demo for the FX cards. (I know the FX cards you think, how long ago was that? Though since when have games actually incorporated those graphics since then?) You can see the wrinkles on her skin and whatnot. It also turns the flat walls and grounds/water you've seen in the demo, to fully bump mapped, amazing looking water when enabled. Not to mention killer lighting effects. This game could literally be used as a stress test on your system to see how well it runs.

Is anyone even going to play this, like who give a shit anymore, christ, let the franchise die.

Have you tried the demo? It's actually quite good. There's no reason to kill a franchise if it returns to quality.

using the Next Gen Content, the game runs like crap, even on an X1900XTX. I'm guessing they didn't optimize the game or something.

This game with High End Content enabled which is unavailable in the demo, is mind blowing. Just you wait if you own a 7800 card ATI equivalent. You can check it out with a 6800 series, though don't expect to go more than 5fps. Oh yeah, I saw a friend playing it also already. Damn those warez!

M-rated. 'M' as in 'MATURE'. As in, 17 or older. Okay, let's do a quick poll. How many 17 year olds (or 18 ,19, 20 etc.) have NOT seen a female breast, either in person, in a magazine, or in a movie? Show of hands, please.

Oh, wait, this is the internet. I can't see your hands. Anyway, you get the point...

Good grief! Slap a damn "M" on the box and ship the game. R rated movies contain real bare breasts (or at least silicone facsimiles ;)), and yet U.S. retailers have no trouble selling those.

Well, shit. Just looked up the demo release thread...this is the patch which actually makes the game fun?!

I had just skipped the demo thread, assuming the game to be crap like it's immediate predecssors...I shoulda looked. Thank for the correction, Scottish

Bet all you US-ans were hoping that the delay would hold out...indefinitely.

Haven't played the demo have you?
