Yippie, Lara Croft is Back!

May 16, 2010

If you know me, then you’ll know that I am publicly obsessed with Lara Croft and the Tomb Raider franchise. I’ve played all of her games (on multiple formats) and have several posters of her, including a giant poster of Lara on my wall which faces my bed. That makes me sound like a bit of a lesbian… I have Ezio facing over my bed. Does that make me sound a bit more hetrosexual? Because I am you know. I love men. I really do! Although, if Lara asked me to make out with her … well.. you know the deal. It’s going to happen. It’s going to be awesome. Okay, now I really do sound like a lesbian. Let’s move on, shall we?

So the début trailer for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light has been unveiled on the internet and there seems to be a lot of positive reaction. I’m shocked at the reaction if I’m perfectly honest. People have been dogging on Tomb Raider for a while, so it feels foreign to me that people are pretty excited for this new top down adventure.

While I’m still pissed we are yet to hear news on the next iteration of Tomb Raider, it’s nice to see the Lara Croft brand branch out and do something different. I love the fact the game now has co-op and I’m totally pumped to see it hitting XBLA, PSN and PC end of 2010.

I am also amazed by the sheer amount of detail they have popped in, just from the look of the trailer. It’s good to see that the character models are looking sleek and that the game zooms in on them both during cut scenes. Honestly, this game is looking fantastic!

So yeah, this post was kind of an excited reaction to the trailer being released. In other news, Split/Second: Velocity preview is up.

    I’m quite looking forward to this new direction, as long as it’s an accompaniment to TR instead of a replacement, as they’ve claimed. Hopefully they’ll be spending some time on making the next main TR game something special, more akin to Anniversary than Legend/Underworld.
