    Having competition as Rise related only kind of sucks for us on PS. Would have been nice if it included LCTOO or TR(2013) to let us all have a shot but there you go. Good luck to those who are entering.

    Everyone does have a shot. People don't need to have played TR10 in order to join in on the fun. I believe WinterSoldier is on PS, and it looks like he had no problem entering the competition

    There is plenty of official media and player screenshots out there already to choose from. Not just in the threads I linked to in the OP as examples.

    Thought I'd have a go at an "inspirational" one, tho I don't think I can bring anything new to that table giving the stuff I see constantly on TR facebook posts & twitter.

    May have to click to enlarge to read that. Not sure why it looks blurry on here. It's fine on my comp.

    Not sure if intentional or not, but the text falls outside the balloon and becomes unreadable, Marta.

    It's the JPEG compression. It doesn't like red text very much. It's always best to avoid red when doing text.

    I see. Definitely have to remember that. Thanks. Of course, I'm sure an outline would help as well, but for some reason my photo editing software doesn't have the best text outlines.

    A white text bubble might improve it yeah. I think it's the dark colors around the red text that emphasize the JPEG compression artifacts.

    What software are you using?

    It was intentional, as to represent the guy losing his attention to what Lara is saying. She keeps talking, but he's not listening anymore. I was going to just write "blablabla" but ended up deciding to put it like that.
