tombraidergifs

Seasons Greetings to all my wonderful followers. I had planned to make a card like I did last year but it just didn’t happen unfortunately but I hope to entertain you somewhat through 2014 with gifs and TR fangasms. I hope you all have a wonderful day and wonderful new year and thank you for indulging me in my obsession. You’re all awesome and I love you. 

Day 25: Favourite Fan Sites and Blogs

I have two. The first one being; http://tombraiders.net/index.html

Stella’s Tomb Raider Site. It’s the first and only place I go to for walkthroughs and help with any of the games. 

The second one is; http://tombraidergifs.tumblr.com/

Tomb Raider GIFS. They run a great blog, make great gifs and give great and honest reviews on the game. I love their passion and love for the game too. 

 

TR2013 Requests

I should have mentioned this earlier but until the game is out, I don’t intend on making any gifs of or paying much attention to Tomb Raider (2013). For numerous reasons and I do apologise but for the time being I’d like to keep this blog dedicated to the installments in the series that have already been released with particular focus on the first couple of games. Anyway, you’re not here for my words so here’s a new gif that sums it up. :)

ASPYR - TOMB RAIDER

So, I know a lot of you guys are Tomb Raider fans and I think we all suffer from modern computers’ disabilities to run our beloved tombraider.exe files.
Thus, the company Aspyr revves up old games to make them playable on Apple Macs.
Sadly there’s only one TR game available and requests of mine haven’t found hearing.
That’s where you guys come in:
If all of us - fans and people who want gamers’ hearts to skip a beat - would show our interest in the renewing of old TR games, the dream of playing them on modern devices would finally come true.
For further information please send me an ask or a fan mail!!

Day 10: Your favourite quote from the game? 

Really? This is the game of badass quotes. Every time Lara opens her mouth is pure gold. I love so much her contemptuous, sarcastic remarks. She has been always like that, but in TRAOD she just rises to epic levels. Not that it’s recommended if you want to achieve some goals throughout the game (for example, Werner’s notebook, money and some weapons), but anyway, it’s a lot of fun enjoying this.

I’ll go for the

“Nice watch”.

“What?”

“Am I talking too fast for you?”

since it’s the very first time I laughed my ass off in this game. There would be many more. Maaaaany moooore. And not just Lara. Other characters, starting by Kurtis and finishing with some minor jewels like Janice’s “Move along ma chère, you make the place look crowded” makes the game worth to be listened carefully. Or Eckhardt’s quote, who inspired two fanfics and the title of this blog: “Congratulations, Ms. Croft. You are positively Amazonian. That Vault has defeated us for months”.

Sadly most of the most awesome badass quotes of Lara and Kurtis are part of the deleted audio content and didn’t appeared at the final version of the game.

Just to remember another great one I still use nowadays when some one tells me the usual about TRAOD -“not a Tomb Raider”,  “a big disappointment”, “it has bugs”, “its controls are difficult”- and bullshit like that:

I haven’t been on in a while. Been taking a bit of a breather from tumblr. So, I was thinking about changing the name of this blog to something else. I’ve posted a tonne of gifs over the last year but I don’t want to limit myself to just gifs. Well, I haven’t limited myself to just gifs and gifsets are very time consuming so a new name seems appropriate. Only snag is I suck at coming up with names. Suggestions would be more than welcome! ….

No seriously, please…
