I would have gone PS4, but not waiting that long. GMG pre-order is a go.

Same here.

Much as I loved the first one, still perfectly happy to wait...

If it's anything like the last one, I'm sure I'll eventually get it for both PC and PS4.

Same here. Besides I have a back log right now thanks to Christmas and the PSN sale.

I haven't really read up on this game much, but if it's anything like the previous one, I'm likely going to want to Platinum it on the PS4. I'll probably skip the PC version as a result. Getting 100% on PC felt like a waste when I couldn't get the platinum for it.

I'm getting it on the PC (someday) because trophies\achievements are meaningless, and I'd rather experience it with the best graphics available smile

A new PC patch was released today, nothing major but still an improvement.

I like leaderboards and competition and the PC is awful for that due to cheating. Though I agree that trophies and achievements are meaningless, beating people isn't slywink

I've been playing this off and on (PC) and have been very disappointed in it.  It feels like they ratcheted the collection aspects up to 11 at the expense of everything else.   Seems like there's something flashing at me to pick it up every two steps.  I know I could just ignore them, but that doesn't eliminate the distraction.  The story (at least through 5 hours) is incredibly dull, and there's little in the way of the character development for Lara that made the reboot so interesting.  There have been very few set pieces, and even the ones that are there have been underwhelming.   Throw in some completely random performance issues (it'll run perfectly fine and smooth for 10 minutes, then suddenly slows down to a slide show for 30 seconds.  Rinse and repeat.), and I find myself mostly alternating between frustrated and just...bored.

As much as I thoroughly enjoyed the reboot, Rise of the Tomb Raider puts the series back in the 'meh' camp that Tomb Raider has always occupied for me.
