  •   One of the titles I’m really looking forward to this year is the reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise, if only from a nostalgic point of view. Without giving away my age, I can only say that I was very young when I met the adventurous Lara Croft and she soon became my heroine. She was the first memorable female gaming character and for someone not even in her teens, the concept was mind blowing. Lara Croft had shown me that the girls can do it too and I spend many, many hours staring at her back, blowing away bad guys and making a reasonable dent in the animal populations of Peru and China. In all that time, I […]

    The Future of Gaming: Me and my Tomb Raider…s?!

  • Having made my peace with the unsatisfying end of that-game-that-shall-not-be-named-until-they-fix-it I have spend some time investigating the other hopeful candidates of entertainment that I have on the horizon for this year. Among all of the potentially awesome games around, I have to say that for me, Tomb Raider stands out. I realize that this is a purely personal matter. There are a lot of other ‘big hitters’ out there that will no doubt change the face of gaming forever. But, for me – Tomb Raider is the star I’m waiting for. Crystal Dynamic’s studio head, Darrell Gallagher promises that they will be exploring concepts that had not been covered before in the previous franchises. It will be the origin story that will […]

  • Of course, Mass Effect 3 isn’t the only game that’s scheduled for release in 2012 and I feel it’s time to look at another one of the titles that I’ve been flexing my fingers for. On the 6th of December 2010 Square Enix announced that they will be releasing a new title in the popular Tomb Raider franchise. Apparently, they had been working on this title since 2008 with developers Crystal Dynamics. It looks promising. This story takes us back to the time that Lara has just turned 21. If you’ve followed the original story lines, you’ll remember that this was the age the original game (or rather – let me say first game) had pin marked for Lara’s transformation […]
