Here’s a cool trailer for a game that Square-Enix teased back in February – but has shown very little of since. A little like Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective in its basic premise, Murdered: Soul Suspect has detective Ronan O’Connor trying to bring his own killer to justice - from beyond the grave. and it looks rather intriguing.
Tomb Raider on the PC is one of the few blockbuster titles that features an AMD splash screen instead of the all-too-familiar “Nvidia: The way it’s meant to be played” one – so it’s fair to say that’s it’s been heavily optimised for AMD cards. In fact, right now, it doesn’t work very well with Nvidia hardware at all – but a fix is coming.
I dread the word reboot. To me, reboot has become a swearword used to make more money by telling the exact same story again, but with new shiny bits and explosions. Then you get those shining examples, things I like to refer to as a 'reimagining' rather than a reboot. A recent example that springs to mind is DmC, where Ninja Theory gave a new story and new purpose to a franchise. Tomb Raider is one such reimagining.
We’ve already shown one publication’s tremendously high review score for the impending Tomb Raider reboot – but now that reviews are everywhere, it’s time to take a look to see if the newly redesigned Lara has her own merits, or is just a full circle, re-appropriated Nathan Drake. Here’s what critic have to say.
Originally shown during the Spike VGA’s this extended trailer for Crystal Dynamic’s Tomb Raider reboot shows Lara Croft’s penchant for survival…and falling. Mostly falling. Gravity is not Ms Croft’s biggest friend, it seems. there’s a fair bit of concern from fans that the game’s looking a little bit like Uncharted: Boobs Edition, and it’s a wholly valid one. Does it really matter though, if it’s a damned good game?
The biggest worry for most long-time Tomb Raider fans is whether or not the re-imagined Lara Croft captures the essence of what made the character so iconic in the first place – or if perhaps her rebirth is too much of a departure. We chatted to the game’s creative director, Noah Hughes, to put those fears to rest – and chat a little more about the gritty origin story.
Crystal Dynamics’ new Tomb Raider reboot is unlike any other Tomb Raider game I have played before. I’m not sure if this is the Tomb Raider that people will be expecting but I am sure that this fresh, new approach to the franchise is one that is well overdue. If you are one of those gamers who isn’t a fan of change, best you start mentally preparing yourself now!
Tomb Raider finally arrives next year, and it puts a fresh spin on the iconic character, swapping bra sizes for actual character development. So just how long is that journey of self discovery then, and could it lead to a sequel? The answer? Maaaaaaybe!
The new Tomb Raider’s been delayed to the first quarter of next year - but that doesn’t mean that Crystal Dynamics isn’t already planning a sequel. Yup, expect more Tomb Raider. hopefully, we can expect more Camilla Ludington as well.
New games can be a risky business these days in the industry. After all, many studios are only one badly-selling title away from being closed down, permanently. Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics is feeling lucky right now though, as the studio is preparing to launch their own new IP in the near future.
The developers behind the upcoming Tomb Raider are not happy with some of the coverage they have been receiving and instead of just being grumpy about it they’ve actually decided to release a press release to call out some of the criticism.
GameInformer kick started a lot of excitement in the Nintendo camp when they listed the Nintendo Wii-U as a platform for the upcoming, and incredible looking, Tomb Raider.
I have to admit that when I think of Tomb Raider I think back to the Angelina Jolie days and possibly an illegal nude hack that I may or may not have implemented to make the game just that much better.
Yesterday, Microsoft - with the help of Crystal Dynamics demonstrated four minutes of gameplay from the new Tomb Raider reboot - showing a younger, less busty Lara Croft kicking ass.
When she wasn’t falling.
Lara isn’t just getting a fresh start to the latest Tomb Raider title, as it seems that she’ll be experiencing a new form of gameplay as well, into a more open world.
