The overwhelming majority of retro games were cheap cash grabs. Most of them had dev teams that were even smaller than indie games have, and they cost roughly the same as games do today without adjusting for inflation.

Tomb Raider was cheaper and quicker to create than basically all first party Nintendo games of the time. Not sure how you didn't know that.

There were PS1 games with genuinely big teams and budgets, but not fucking Tomb Raider kek.

>> No.10687547

The originals still work fine, so no.

>> No.10687576 [DELETED] 

>muh big budgets
why are you such a populist bitch? bigger budgets and teams translate to less passion and more cash grabs as you have to minimize risks. That's why Nintendo made 80% of its library Mario and Zelda

>> No.10687582 [DELETED] 

Neither of them were cheap cash grabs obviously, but it's pretty amazing looking at Tomb Raider beside Ocarina of Time which had a staff of over 200 people working on it while TR was done by a group of six.

>> No.10687584

>No I play the originals with an emulator.

Personally, I feel like some sort of remasters of the original Tomb Raider Trilogy (at the least) was long overdue. We would see remasters of games one console generation out. Like the Tomb Raider reboot, for example. But the originals have been left untouched for close to 30 years for some of them. These remasters are being built from the 'original' source codes and contain an HD pack for the models and textures, along with a few other added features. If they turn out well, than great.

Kind of random, but this is the first time that the original Tomb Raider games will appear on a Nintendo console officially. Tomb Raider 1 was on the Saturn, and did get a few other ports. But Tomb Raider 2 and 3 have always been PS1 exclusives on console (not including PSN) as well as PC releases. I think they were ported to at least iOS and Android.

>> No.10687596 [DELETED] 

The fact that so many sites still name Ocarina of Time as "the greatest or most significant or most influential" video game ever only tells you how far video games still are from becoming a serious art. Film critics have long recognized that the greatest films of all times are Citizen Kane and The Seventh Seal, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times. Literature critics rank the highly controversial Joyce's Ulysses over classical novels who were highly popular in libraries around Europe. Video games critics are still blinded by commercial success. Ocarina of Time invented lock-on (not true, by the way), therefore it must have been the greatest. Film critics grow up watching a lot of films of the past, literature critics grow up reading a lot of classical books of the past. Video game critics are often totally ignorant of the video games of the past, they barely know the Nintendo games. No wonder they will think that Ocarina did anything worthy of being saved.

It looks alright desu. I'll probably get it just to have a nice widescreen PC version that works out of the box with gamepads and doesn't need any tinkering. OpenLara is good but it really only works properly with TR1. Not especially interested in the new graphics, but it looks fine.

Did you know Sam Houser at the time of GTA 3's development was just an executive and didn't take part of GTA 3's development at all? GTA 3 doesn't play like Zelda at all. You guys repeat your empty tautology over and over and over and you're never able to pinpoint which specific factors did GTA 3 take from OoT. Because you can't think for yourselves! you only know how to appeal to authority and that's it. GTA 3 is just GTA 1 in a 3D plane, which precedes OoT, and nothing about it resembles the latter anyway. But you do you and keep mindlessly parroting what you see on the internet instead of experiencing the games for yourself.

>> No.10687774 [DELETED] 

>One of the most obvious examples is Dark Souls
This is such a jump in logic that you must think OoT was the first 3D game ever and Dark Souls the second. Adding lock-on to your game doesn't mean it's influenced by Zelda (nor did Zelda invented the goddamned lock-on). Demon's Souls and further Souls-likes just follow the FromSoft formula of Dungeon Crawlers a la King's Field or Eternal Ring, with improved combat that drinks more from Devil May Cry than Zelda.

Only a man with severe retardation can play Dark Souls and think "ummm yes, this is like Zelda!". Play more games. I'll stop engaging with derailing retards who want to make everything about Nintendo by trying to put down everything else. Tired of your shit, if your game wasn't on your toy box, it means it's bad or influenced by Nintendo. No game outside the tendie ecosystem can stand on its own, no, it must be all merit of Nintendo. Literal mental illness.

Not him, but it's funny that in the Alundra thread someone is bemoaning the opposite take, that Zelda didn't influence very things nearly enough and that games in the vein are few and far between.

Which I wouldn't entirely agree with, but if you look at the way Doom's popularity made the fos genre blow up and start getting constant clones, or Street Fighter 2 doing the same thing and leading to a glut of fighting game spinoffs. Zelda remains a bit of it's own thing, there aren't a ton of games old or new that get referred to as Zelda clones and most that do like Alundra, Okami or Beyond Oasis are actually not very similar.

Pulp Fiction is by no means a "cheap" movie. It had a budget in the millions, unlike Tomb Raider. What do you think "cheap" means, exactly?

No, but Tomb Raider was low quality, despite that. It was a game designed to sell titties to retards. The ads from back then make that unambiguously clear.

I'm not saying it's biased, I'm saying a list of what's most popular doesn't really matter to most people. There's probably hardly anyone for whom that list has all games they like and doesn't leave out their other favorites.

It's like hearing Frozen 2 or Avengers End Game were wildly popular. If you agree you shrug because it's seems obvious, if you don't agree you shrug because who really expects what's most popular to always be most appealing?

Music is just far more personal, I'm not a huge fan of the Beatles but couldn't even make it half way through the song you just mentioned. Which is fine, I think that's how things ought to be, with enough creative differences to speak to many different kinds of people.

For those who never played TR1 before, this is the jacket of Pierre. It's one of things that was able to slip by the ESRB when they gave the game a T rating back then because almost everyone who encounters him never sees the back of his jacket.

I've had a lot of doubts about this because it's Aspyr, but looking at the credits now reveals that they hired a lot of TR community artists and decomp guys to work on this, eg. the OpenLara guy was the technical lead, which is probably why it feels like the people involved with this actually gave a shit.

I'd say they're completely complimentary. Zelda has a far more open and interactive world (TLR's hubs aside) that is more compelling on the whole and allows for a lot more variety of possible things along with a lot more general polish, while TR's momentum based puzzle platforming and persistent danger of insta-death makes it's levels generally more interesting than Zelda's dungeons to figure out, because the basic problem of "how do I get from here to there" generally requires you to think about its level geometry more.

Both games (OoT and TR specifically) are in the top 10 most atmospheric ever made.

I don't care about Remastered until it comes out fixed on GOG. For now, I want to know about the best way to play the games right now.

>> No.10694170 [DELETED] 

I'd have to disagree. While the mechanics in oot are nice, they lack actual enemies and obstacles that make the best of the mechanics. I will admit some items do get nice uses, like the different boots and hookshot. The targeting mechanics are great but it's so boring after the first few times fighting a Stalfos, then the last fight is so lackluster. Where as the first level of tomb raider is full on obstacle course with tons of stuff to flip off of and do maneuvers on. Tomb raiders puzzles are like oots puzzle for adults.

I'm going to be honest with you here. That type of trope really wasn't a thing in the world of video games before Lara Croft made it a thing. Before 1996, it wasn't a trope at all. After Tomb Raider, you saw this rise in female protagonists in skimpy attire.

This is one of the oldest magazine previews I can find for the original Tomb Raider (on the Sega Saturn), it has really early beta screenshots and images from the early pre-rendered promotional videos. This preview is from November 1995.

>"First of all, have a look at Lara Cruz... is she hot or what? It's high time a stylin' babe like LC starred in a video game, don't ya think?"

Lara was Lara Cruz in the earliest builds. But back in mid 1995, an editor from a game magazine made this comment, because you didn't see female protagonists like Lara in games, outside of the odd Japanese title and 2D fighting games. Early 90's was really flooded with Sonic inspired characters. I feel like Lara Croft set the trend for the later half of the 90's. I would even say that Lara was one of the most influential 90's game characters.

I haven't tried it out yet other than through the website since I've had trouble getting it installed on Linux, but I would guess so.

OpenLara is a game engine, so it has a ton of graphics options, multiple players, and quality of life enhancements and I think games 1=4 work on it. TR1X is a decomp, so the game still runs at 30fps and is basically vanilla. It has some additional things like command line input, but it's much more limited than the other. As far as the remaster goes, it is actually pretty decent with the old graphics and it seems to add a midair flip to make changing directions more convenient.

That's it? You'll find some really primitive and embarrassing shit if you go look around here and there in Appalachia too. Or for that matter places like rural Russia, India, and China, or Brazilian favelas.

Shit, black tribals in parts of Africa can be argued to be more flattering in a sense if you consider that many of them are just living the same hunter-gatherer lifestyle that people used to a hundred thousand years back, rather than being drug addicts or alcoholics living on gov't gibs.
Sure, they're literal spearchuckers who are eons behind even developing poorfag countries, but frequently they're actually fucking self-sufficient. You wanna see blacks being REALLY fucking embarrassing then look at Zimbabwe instead, THAT's something to be ashamed of.

You can say the exact same thing about how blacks are depicted in old cartoons like Song of the South.

Nix that. A better example is Coal Black n da Sebben Dwarfs. A comedic depiction of black culture of the 1940s, rooted very much in reality. But the cartoon has been locked in a vault since the 1970s because showing blacks as enjoying jazz and fancy clothes and pretty girls is "racist".

They actually started censorship of older cartoons with blackface and what not way back in the 1960's like with Tom and Jerry shorts. In fact they outright replaced the mammy character with a teenage white girl in many of them back then.

I can't understand the disclaimer that well. Is it to just cover their asses in case someone complains and/or faces them with some kind of legal action?
Because if a rational modern person sees a "blatently bigoted" scene in the media they are consuming they instantly know that it's wrong. They don't need a few seconds of text on their screen at the start to remind them of that.
Meanwhile bigoted people who won't see an issue with the "blatently bigoted" scene and might actually even enjoy it or yearn to go back the old days aren't going to be dissuaded by those words on the screen.
I guess it could be argued for people that sit in the middle that might not know about the state of the scene bigottedness?

Last but by no means least, XProger thanked the games' original developers and community. "We eagerly read ALL your comments, interviews, reviews and reactions. The responsibility to all of you was higher than the fear of deadlines and the insane amount of work."

The Mac source codes were derived from the DOS/ Windows PC source codes. These versions have a few odd quirks to them because of that. But they are probably the closest that the devs could get to obtaining anything that resembled the original source codes.

One think to note about running the Windows game on Linux through proton is that there's no frame pacing stuttering issues that was reported on by DF.


In the same video John reports that the windows version has a frame-pacing issue that can be solved through a windows setting. But the issue doesn't exist on proton.

here's his OG model, he looks less like a generic Dreamworks prince, and has some cool looking side burns in the original model. And his pants weren't corduroys. I can appreciate the attempt at HD textures, and I don;t think it is all bad. But, some of it feels very 'first draft' and 'we had to meet a deadline' kinda remaster. I think, the 'base' of this port is really good. I mean, the implementation of the Mac source code, the extra features. The QOL updates. But the HD pack aspect is a little hit and miss.

It's amazing what the fanbase has done to keep the original Tomb Raider series alive. But I think it's good to see some form of an official remaster/ release of the series. But it really does feel like the IP holders do like to snub the original series. Because I feel like a much higher caliber remasters should have happened about 10 years ago. I am happy to see an all-in-one collection of TR1-3 though. Aspyr had to use the Mac source codes to do it. They apparently hired some of the fan modders to work on this.

>> No.10707874

One think that I really like about the photo mode is that you can pause at certain points and see things happen. Like right here, when you land on this one platform, Pierre will spawn below you right at this spot. You are never suppose to see this while playing the OG game.

Made by passionate fans/modders... but low budget, rushed and clearly cut corners, uneven quality. Some tasteless textures, even some shitty AI upscaling
Ruined lighting and atmosphere in a lot of places, added holes in every ceiling and skyboxes in underground areas, at cost of ruining in-world logic
Modern graphics are either too dark or too bright in some places, can't see keys in Cistern but make darkness secrets too obvious like in Venice. Missing shadows in Damocles room, lack of wobbly swamp sfx in TR3...
Obvious more effort put into TR1 (frontloaded). Butchered TR2 and especially TR3 lighting, botched TLA...
Lara mostly faithful... but looks bogged and cartoonish, glitchy braid
HD characters still head bobble in cutscenes
Added cutscene subtitles
No graphics options
Can't unlock framerate on classic graphics (<30FPS)
Can't change FOV
Known stutter issues on Nvidia
SJW ESG trigger warning (-nolegal), censored jacket titties

Ability to retrieve gear in Nevada
Backported mid-air flip to TR1
Reversed Unfinished Business levels order
Restored TR3 boss music
No changes to Thor/Neptune
Photo mode
Have to manually switch between tank and modern controls, when they could have just binded classic to dpad and modern to the stick to switch on-the-fly
"Modern" controls don't let you back/sideflip unless you have guns drawn, meaning you can't do it in Lara's house, in Nevada
Can't bind L1/R1 to left/right sidesteps
"Action indicators" for zoomers are on by default
Added forced health bars for bosses
Didn't backport iconic "aha" sound cues and flares to TR1 (despite making levels darker)
Added NG+ difficulty (with save crystals)
Added QoL item shortcuts (select+A/B/X/Y/R1)
Sunglasses: hold L1+R1 while load a save
Easter eggs (LoK, Giza...)
No unlockable outfits
No extras, concept artworks or core interviews...

Are you retarded? There was no "in-world" logic in Tomb Raider 1 for why certain areas were lit well and others weren't. In fact, it fixed a lot of lighting problems and the re-implemented skybox fixed the initial intentions of developers in places like The Lost Valley, which was never meant to be "underground".

>> No.10712242

I've always been a big fan of the tank controls, they're my favorite part of the games and I'm used to them since I was a kid, but certain people within the TR community are being turbo autistic and insisting tank controls are the only way to play. It actually makes very little difference and you can do everything you need to do with the modern controls. I'd rather new players experience the game with modern controls than being filtered and quitting. The new controls take nothing away from the OG experience of timing jumps and solving puzzles. You just have to approach your jumps a little differently

I'm surprised by how little they detract from the grid-based TR experience. It's just the same shit but you need to align your jumps a little differently

>Backported mid-air flip to TR1

This is like adding the spindash to Sonic 1. I don't think they backported anything to TR1. I suspect that TR1 is now using the TRII or TRIII engine. I suspect that they all are using the same engine for this port. Like the 3D pick-ups that appear on screen when you pick up an item, for example. I feel like Aspyr or Saber dropped all of TR1's assets into the TRIII engine.

>> No.10713217

Toby didn't design Colosseum and maybe Lara didn't have access to helicopters in Peru. Besides, even in the original TR, Lost Valley was supposed to be "outside" anyways, so pointing out that there were holes in the roof is redundant.

Depends. There are some instances where they add neat little immersive flair to some of the environments. Temple Ruins is a nice example where they changed up some of the repeated textures in some areas to give it more variety, and also added things like making the waterfall overflowing on the second tier and spilling out of a cracked enclosure, and you can see the water puddle below.

Stuff like this isn't everywhere, but it's small stuff like that which changes the overall atmosphere, sometimes making it more visually interesting.

Yeah, I knew that. It just seems like TR1, TR2 and TR3 might all be using the same internal engine for this HD collection. Just a theory, because TR1, TR2 and TR3 all seem to have the same features across the boards. But, I don't actually know.

I haven't evens started TR3 in this collection. But that is interesting. It has been confirmed that these ports were made using the Mac source codes that Aspyr has in their possession from their old Mac ports. Aspyr published the Mac ports for TR1: Gold, TRII: Gold, TRIII + TLA, TRC and TR:TLR as well as AOD. They basically did the porting for all of the Core TR games. They do have access to the TR4 and TR5 Mac source codes as well. I have a feeling that Chronicles and The Last Revelation will be a two pack HD release, if this collection does well.

I honestly kinda agree with you. I like the new lighting effects. But it seems odd that so many environments are this open. The Lost valley was always meant to be a Valley, but limitations prevented a sky box from happening. But a lot of these later locations really seem less hidden.
