It was totally legit. The survey asks you not to divulge the questions, but I
think I can safely say it was looking into what kind of new TR game people
would like to see.

I should have added to my last post ...

No, I have not received anything like this. I was signed up for the
release of AOD, too. Not to mention I've gotten the last three games
direct from Eidos. So, lord knows, they have my address.

They probably don't want any 'old blood' opinions :)  we already know
what we like.

I was just joking! :) 

I presume it was legit. I was also very surprised to see they were
actually taking (everyday) gamer's opinions into account this time.
Thus the incredulity of it all. ;) 

I am really gratified to know they've learned their lesson.
Now they just have to ask the *right* people! ;) 
(hear that Eidos? wink, wink, know what I mean, know what I mean ...)

I'm not sure why they picked me. Maybe it was just a random thing. I know
you'd be pleased by my answers. I talked about the mystery and magic of the
early TR games and how any new game must focus on Lara.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Aaaaaargh! - You messed it up!!
When the new TR will have even smaller levels, but a Lara with
more genuine looks and extra big tits, we will have to blame it on you!!!
;-)




BTW, Eidos has released a TR II-IV collection on DVD:
http://www.eidoshelpline.de/produktinfo.php4?plattID=10...
Buying it is not really an option for me at the moment, but
I would be interested to know
what "Add-On Levels" they included as "Bonus"?


BTW2: Here is a fine joke from the same website
( http://www.eidoshelpline.de/faqbereich.php4?plattID=122... )
for those who experienced problems with AOD:

"1.3 Bekannte Probleme

? Zur Zeit gibt es keine bekannten Probleme

Core Design Ltd und Eidos Interactive fühlen sich verpflichtet,
Kunden nach dem Kauf eines Spieles jede mögliche Unterstützung zu bieten.
Aus diesem Grund ist es möglich,
dass zu Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness
ein Programmpatch veröffentlicht wird.
Bitte schauen Sie auf der Eidos-Website vorbei,

Yikes! Actually, it was implied in one of the questions that Lara might not be
in it at all!

Oh nooo!! ;-)
On second thoughts, this might not be such a bad idea on Eidos' behalf:
Take out the people originally involved in the programming,
take out the spirit of the game
- the vast levels, landscapes, pyramids, tombs, T-Rexes -
in one word, take out the tomb raiding,
take out Winston,
finally take out Lara,
KEEP the name "Tomb Raider" and earn lots of money! ;-)



BTW: I am currently playing René Brooymans' wonderful level
"The Sanctuary of Water, Ice and Fire"
( download: http://www.trle.net/AuthorListingQZ.htm ). -
That's the kind of level I would have expected
from TR V, or TR VI at the latest...


BTW2:
What kind of games is Crystal Dynamics best known for?
Is it true, that Crystal Dynamics took over staff from Core
after the TR-AOD desaster?

Might not be so bad, I think it was EIDOS not Core Design who made such a
mess of TR AOD. ^_^

Hey, send that survey to me! It's time I got them straightened out on this.
