    10 bucks is a good buy if you cut it in half and share it.

    The Rant Thread

    Watching Man's Greatest Food. This is the $10 Surf N Turf burrito at JV's Mexican Restaurant in San Diego, California. It's over a dozen medium tiger shrimps, 2 lbs of beef carne asada, 1/2 a lbs of rice, plus quacamole, wrapped in 2 giant tortillas, deep fried and then served with enchilada red chili sauce and shredded cheese on top. That is ridiculous! Anyone who eats the whole thing without sharing it with at least 3-4 people is crazy!!

    where did the empress jaguar go?

    Interesting, @rcgldr - did you get her twice, then? If and when I go through it again might be worth trying. I am pretty sure it's a bug, though, given her going into a crouch. Just the wrong animals spawn!

    challenge tombs

    The forge has multiple paths. After the second pendulum (and third pendulum) inside the main forge area, Lara can get to the left ledge, back track, and press a switch to emit gas from the left serpent head, then jump down and use the second pendulum to go to the right path with the circling spikes (this probably only helps for score attack). Once at the main column, there's a ring that can be pulled down with a rope arrow that opens a doorway that connects the outer perimeter lower path to the outer perimeter middle path, but it quickly releases the door. Once the platform is raised to some point, that doorway automatically opens, so I'm not sure if there was some last minute change, or I just haven't found something on the platform to make a rope bridge to hold the doorway open.

    where did the empress jaguar go?

    My guess is that you can get the empress jaguar twice. The first time before Lara chats with the local that reveals the empress jaguar, the second time after chatting with the local that reveals the empress jaguar on the map.

    new monkey trial thing

    Just did this - bit odd! Just a note to reassure.
  11. On some of the wall runs, I had to switch from pressing left or right to pressing forward just after Lara starts the jump in order to get a wall run + jump to work. Similarly on some of the grapple or jump and grab sequences, especially ones where Lara is sliding down some slope or in a QTE, I had to press grapple/grab earlier than what I would expect for the grapple/grab to work. In prior Tomb Raider games, it worked better if you waited longer before pressing grapple/grab.
  12. I will post some clues tomorrow or Friday unless Morphie and Sir T guess them all by then.
  13. I think it's $29.99 . I ordered the full version assuming it would drive me crazy not to have it.
  14. Last week

    LCO NFL Fantalk 2008

    Talk about sore losers. https://ftw.usatoday.com/2019/01/saints-rams-lawyer-lawsuit-reaction Now they want to sue the NFL to make the NFL to let me replay the end of the NFC game? These are the same Saints that spent years trolling the Vikings over Bountygate, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Orleans_Saints_bounty_scandal but now they're acting like they're the only team to ever get screwed on a non-call. Even last year against the Vikings, the Saints and their fans managed to find a non-call to blame the refs. They made up all these conspiracies that Roger Goodell instructed the refs to make sure they lose the 2011 divisional playoff to the 49ers. LOL a playoff game in which they had ZERO penalties. If anything, the refs let them play and the Saints got away with a number of late hits on Alex Smith in that game.

  22. Nice! I will definitely give it a try next time I replay that section. Thanks!

    where did the empress jaguar go?

    That's been my experience too. Once you've killed the jaguar the first time, Lara will continue to crouch, like there's danger, but the jaguar never seems to respawn. I haven't playtested it extensively, but I've tried returning to that area before heading into the City of the Serpent, then again after finishing the story. Still no empress jaguar. It feels like a bug to me.
  24. Did anyone else get to kill the empress jaguar once - but only once? Lara goes into a crouch in that bit of San Juan for me and can put on mud for camouflage - but there's no big cat, just deer. On my attempts at the game she vanishes permanently after the first time she's killed. Doesn't break the game but is there something specific that gets her to appear?
  25. Stella, I saw your note about this jump in your walkthrough, and just happened to be in this area today on my 4th play-through, so I saved at the checkpoint and went back later to see what I was doing and what worked reliably. Playing on PC with mouse and keyboard (well, mouse and gaming keypad). What works multiple times in a row for me: Walk up to ledge after checkpoint. Take my hand off the mouse and leave it off for the duration. Grapple-jump to rough patch. Do not adjust Lara, the camera, or anything. Wall run back and forth, letting the wall crumble, until I am feeling brave, then jump from the far right and *immediately* hit interact for the grapple (and I mean immediately). I hit 10 in a row doing that after missing the first one because I did not grapple quickly enough. Does anyone else have a favorite method?
  26. It's at 50.1 million hearts, 8.5 million followers and 2.9 million comments now. 2 days ago a second egg has appeared and it has garnered 7.3 million hearts and 212,000 comments so far. This second egg has a slight crack in it. Will we see a chicken hatch from it in the near future? Stay tuned!
