What's next? Probably cancellation. Square-Enix fucked up. They released the game on the least appealing platform at the same time as Fallout 4. They sold less than a million copies. 5 million copies wasn't enough for them the last time. There's no way they can get 5 million PC sales. So their only option is to bump up marketing in time for PS4 release.

Another reboot maybe? Preferrably a better one?
Everything in this rebooted Lara Croft dilogy bothers me. The gameplay is alright (even if actual tomb raiding is now a gravy to the meat that is gunfights), but everything about Lara herself is just plain wrong, from the visual design (sue me) to how she is written. Say what you will about how previous incarnations of the character were heavily sexualized, but she was doing tomb raiding for fun, she felt in control of her life and didn't spend most of the game victimized and abused. She didn't go tomb raiding because of her daddy issues, I can tell you that for nothing. Mommy issues maybe (in Legend), but that's different.

Another reboot where I'm allowed to have fun? I kinda miss raiding tombs because Lara was a bored rich girl.

Unless the game does gangbusters when it's finally released on other platforms, nothing. Not for any time soon at least.

I... did? Uh... I love you, too?

OT: If I'm understanding this correctly[footnote]Probably not, but I digress...[/footnote], does this mean the next game would be called Revenge of the Tomb Raider? With Mayan-reading puzzles almost akin to playing Tetris?

The game is still exclusive to a system that many of us don't own. We're not about to watch a video that spoils the story. At least I'm not. Sorry.

eh i was fine watching the video i am never going to play the Tomb Raider reboots since the first one was so crap and i didnt even know there was a second one out i thought geek remix managed to snaffle a prerelease or something.
But i liked how the presenter Mari is it? did all the research and put it in for us even though it was all but useless it was interesting to me and it was funny when she was up front about not wanting to feel like it was wasted effort

Mari,

Interesting subject(considering Tomb Raider never really interested me much) though occasionally a bit rambley at times. Respectfully recommend tightening up the presentation a little in order to make it easier to follow.

I do look forward to seeing more though.

How would you guys feel about an undertale video?
I can think of a few users that would be filled with determination to watch such a video...

I would. Just looking reading the TVTROPES page taught me that there is so much I missed about that game without realizing it.
