I personally wished the Trailer showed some in-game scenes.
Hope they bring out a Demo for X360 soon. :shark

Don't we all, [hehe] . But the Behind the Surface trailer showed some in game footage; like some of Lara's new moves.

I checked the official Tomb Raider site.
No record of a PSP version. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, it tells you what consoles which of the three (Legend, Anniversary, Underworld) was released on.
Under PSP on Underworld's table, it's blank, and the others say 'Coming Soon', so I don't think a PSP game is in the making.

True, but I've seen many articles speculating one.

I was playing on TR:L earlier and in regards to the manor, it occured to me -Its not as if shes blowing up her only house; she has 3 [hehe] .

That's exactly what I said. But she considers that one her home. Also, I was on some forums reading posts, and there were some fantastic theories pointing in favor that the woman blowing up the manor was not Lara. And I'm starting to believe them too.

I personally think its a load of tosh, although I agree what is said about Lara looking rather similar to Amanda. Anyone remember what Tody Gard and Jason Botta said in the commentary for TR:A? They'd like to keep an set amount of realism in the games, and I think Amanda or a reborn Natla somehow being transformed into a Lara Clone is classified as unrealistic. Well, unless they used the complete primitive use of cosmetics instead. Which again is unlikely.

As I've said earlier in another forum I would find it rather lame if that were the case.

If it weren't really Lara who did it, were's the meaning then? Just some 'terrorist' who pretended to by Lara? (Why anyway??? It did not seem to me that any witnesses were around; maybe to fool Zip, Alister and Winston - were they still inside? I don't think they would dare to kill all three off, especially not Winston!)

If Lara didn't do it, it was her being possessed by some kind of spirit, which I also don't want to believe... *yawn*

I'd rather think that something forced her hand and that it wasn't an easy thing to do for her.

I still think the manor was infested, like by a portal to the underworld which needed to be closed (however the manor itself seemed normal inside, not 'possessed'...).

Yeah, I always thought these theories were a crock of chocolate pudding, but some of them did seem substantial. I mean, you make a fine point: if that wasn't Lara, who was it and why? Some said it was Amanda (in which after reading that, my eyes deceived me by making me think that it looked like her a little bit) and others said it was Natla. Natla? C'mon.

Here's the conspiracy theories I came across, the ones I deemed a bit substantial.

And this one was a bit clichéd, but there were some valid reasoning.

The latter had some interesting finds that I'm about to have a look at myself. Some creepy, some just making you think hard.

BUT WAIT!!! Act now, and you shall also find this!



Now, either Lara's been possessed (which I highly doubt), and the demon is in her eye...or the more logical reason that might PROVE that was Lara...tears rolled from her eyes, making her eyeliner run...but how come her other eye wasn't affected? Ooh.

Or it could just be the rain. But if that's the case, why isn't her hair wet, ;-) ?

I noticed that before and thought it was a tear.

Which of course, as I said, gives proof that the woman blowing up Croft Manor was indeed Lara.

(*in victory tone*)YES!

:-? Maybe Lara faked her own death so that she could run off on this epic adventure that edios describes as her against the world. I mean, if its really that bad she wouldn't want to be traced. That would explain why there's a pair of pistols in the mansion, and possibly why she smirks near the end - a job well done. The outfit looks kind of like the one she wears in the London level of TRIII so personally, I don't think its that out of place. I was looking at the "broach" near her shoulder, definitely could be the Galali key, but I just think its detail on her top as there's a kind of similar shadow on her other shoulder, but you never quite see it well enough to tell.

One thing I have noticed, especially now the third trailer is out, is there is absolutely no mention of Alistair whatsoever. You never hear his voice, you never see him and his name is never said... It seems a long shot, especially if it is Lara blowing up the mansion, but maybe he was in there.

Alister might not even be in Underworld. You can't expect them to reveal everything before the game comes out. I don't know about you but I'd rather not know everything about the game before it's even in my hands.

I can't believe I haven't noticed this before, and it's been sitting right under my damned nose! The "Ghalali Key" on Lara's chest is actually her Personal Light Source, :slapforehead .

I saw it while watching the first gameplay trailer (with Natla) and I saw it...after all this time.
