Boom, found a digital code for $25. It'll take all day to download, but it's a great price.

I'm enjoying the game a good deal so far. The story seems kind of meh so far, but the gameplay is pretty fun. A lot more ability to go either stealth or full on than I seem to recall in the first game. No dual wielding pistols from the beginning is a wag of the finger, though. Hopefully, she gets them by the end of the game.

Here's typical Rhianna Pratchett for you, with her usual cliched stories and cliched cardboard characters. I toned down my excitement great deal as soon as I learned she's going to write Rise. Now it's freaking GULAG (favorite fetish about Russia in England, it seems).

I'll be honest, I really wasn't all that interested in the story. I don't even remember what happened in the first game plotwise.

Really nothing. Still, it's way more fun when you get interesting characters like Nathan Drake or Ellie. Instead of wet dreams of Pratchett like how she wants to be raped by Russians.

This reboot series is now easily one of my favorite franchises along with GTA and Elder Scrolls. It's even surpassed Halo for me.

Just finished the first game last night and will definitely get this game before the end of the year, going on a forced fast of buying stuff before Christmas since everyone says I'm way too hard to buy for.

Great to hear this has received pretty good reviews so far. I still have to wait a year to play it on PC, though.

For PC, naw, it won't be a year wait for PC players. "Early 2016" is the only info that's been put out there but it shouldn't be too much longer after the X1 release. PS4 is the year wait.

Glad to hear the XBox-ers are enjoying this. Should be the worth the year-long PS4 wait for me. UC4 should help with that, lol.

It sucks to have to wait a year, but seeing as how I just got my PS4 and I have about 15-20 that I'm planning to get in the next week, and not as much free time as I'd like, I don't mind waiting. This was definitely the #1 game to play on my list, but I'm more than happy to hopefully get the first one on PS4 soon so I can get my fix of Current gen Lara.

I believe Gamestop will have the 1st TR on sale for $15 this BF weekend.

which is $5 off from the regular $20 price.

so you should definitely be able to get it for cheap.

Yeah, Gamestop is the lowest price I've seen advertised. I just got a GCU account today and I was tempted to just get this today, which would have been $16 after the discount. But something tells me this will be close to $10 somewhere at some point next week.

^ I wouldn't be surprised to see it for $10.

I've got my eyes on it, too, next week, cuz I need to pick the game up again.

the year wait for Rise will give me the opportunity to finish the 1st game.....lol.

If anyone is interested in reading my dev blog about my experience working on this game they just posted it tonight (finally, ha they said they'd put it up like 2 weeks ago

Rise Of The QA Raider

It's not as technical as some of the others but I really enjoyed writing it.
