I don't know about all of you, but I love paying to download an app that is basically one giant ad for a $60 game.

They should have made a Mac version instead of this app.

I always thought these should be free/bundled with the game itself.

I've never dabbled in iOS development but on PC distribution channels you can request as many redeemable codes as you want. It could just be as simple as giving each game customer an app code too.

The game is incredible though!

Wake up and smell the coffee... Mobile will be the priority in this world we all live in. Macs and PCs will be just in factories and home offices around the world creating apps for the mobile industry.

Sorry but the fun part for all of us the Mac users and PC users is done. from now on we just need them for WORK.

I guess you missed the part where the game is being released on XBox, PS3 and PC, not iOS, and not Mac. It was a solid effort though. The OP was saying that they should have spent their time porting the game to Mac, rather than spending creating a behind the scenes iOS app.

Why does the rendered Lara look way better than her real-life counterpart? Dammit those artists are good.

Probably won't download the app, but I'm excited about the game.

Love the typography. What font is that? And I'm saying this with only a little twinge of irony.

I just looked at the screen shots of this app. Have you seen Camilla Luddington (http://www.wallpaperfo.com/download/view?resolution=1080x960&file=MjU2MHgxNjAwLzIwMTIwNzEyL3dvbWVuIGFjdHJlc3MgbW9kZWxzIHRvbWIgcmFpZGVyIGxhcmEgY3JvZnQgY2VsZWJyaXR 5IGNhbWlsbGEgbHVkZGluZ3RvbiAyNTYweDE2MDAgd2FsbHBhcGVyX3d3dy53YWxscGFwZXJmby5jb21fNDQuanBn&name=d29tZW5fYWN0cmVzc19tb2RlbHNfdG9tYl9yYWlkZXJfbGFyYV9jcm9mdF9jZWxlYnJpdHlfY2FtaWxsYV9sdWRkaW5ndG9 uXzI1NjB4MTYwMF93YWxscGFwZXI=)? The new voice of Lara Croft?

Is it $60 in America? I bought mine for 26 on Steam, isn't that $40?

I can't tell if you're a joke account or not, but what you're saying is pretty funny.

The Uncanny Valley at it's finest. Make sure you check out the Galaxy Chocolate (http://youtu.be/SFw8NjZF-Qk) ad featuring a creepily arousing Audrey Hepburn.

I hate you for confirming this...now I'm leaving to buy the game!
