    CDkeys has the base game for $21. Worth it IMO.

    Got too many other games in my backlog that take priority. No point paying $21 if I'm not going to play it for at least another 6 to 12 months anyway.

    Should be a good game. Let's hope they don't lock it down to a single plat. This time I will await the PC version to play. I finished it on the XBONE and then never got around to playing it on PC. :rolleyes:

    That makes sense. By then the base game + DLC will be dirt cheap.

    They also have the 20th anniversary edition for ~$28, which has all the DLC.

    I've been playing through it...great game so far, pretty much the same as the first but I liked that one as well.

    I'm game for another one that's akin to the last two. They're the closest thing we have to a multiplatform Uncharted/Assassin's Creed hybrid.
    One more along those lines is fine. Any more and they risk burning us out.

    disappointing that Crystal Dynamics is not the developer for this...apparently Eidos Montreal is taking over...I'm hearing that there might be 2 Tomb Raider games in development with Crystal Dynamics leading the A team...sounds confusing...sort of like the Arkham Origins release

    That doesn't sound good. This is typically how a good series is run into the ground. And even if it is good, we'll get burned out of releases with little change so close to another. I was wondering why it was leaked this early (unless it is just a leak early in development). Then again, this is the studio behind DE: HR and MD, so maybe it can be decent.

    Looking forward to it. I completed RotTR at 100%, so I'll for the same with this one. I have yet to play the last SP DLC for the mansion but I'll probably get it during Christmas.

    I've had no issues with the Eidos Montreal games that I've played, so I've got no problems with them being the developer. Thief was the worst game they've made and it was still at least okay.

    Great, the CoD method of development.

    I won't get it because I haven't even scratched the surface of the last two games.

    Same here but I can understand some of the trepidation and caution on this (COD carryover.)

    Hopefully these do well. I think this series has a lot of momentum to it and potential if they execute it properly.

    I got the 20th anniversary edition on greenmangaming.com for $19.60. Looking forward to playing it. The last one I finished with 100% completion, which is rare for me to do.

    I like that they officially announced it with only 6 months till release...too many publishers/developers tease their games 1+ years ahead of time...no need for such a long build-up...3-4 months is good enough...movies are different and I can see why they would want to announce it years in advance (Star Wars, Avatar etc)

    I know the reboot series has a lot of mixed opinions. But I really enjoy them, looking forward to this. I noticed it said it is developed by Square Enix on the steam page rather than Crystal Dynamics or Eidos Montreal, not sure if it is in error, but some Square developed games have had poor optimization on PC, hopefully that's not the case for this.

    Personally I'm waiting for Pantheon Rise of the Fallen, Metro Exodus, Sandstorm Insurgency, and Darksiders 3.
    I have The Hunt Showdown and Pillar of Eternity 2 to keep me happy I won't pay full price for this game unless Lara is in the nude the entire game.
