How Have I Neglected To Mention These?


The month of March 2013 has been an amazing month for video games. We had the Tomb Raider reboot, Sim City and StarCraft 2 Heart of the Swarm launch all to amazing success (Sim City eventually got there).

I have played all 3, finished the Starcraft 2 HotS campaign and played through Tomb Raider to completion with so far a 83% completion rating. Not to mention Sim City, that game since launch has sucked away 70+ hours of my life, time of which I will never get back.

A quick look at a few of my cities in Sim City, a large metropolis along the coast with limited land size and a tourist town attracting people with an Expo Center.

I cannot measure the fun I’ve had with these games over the last few weeks, how have I neglected to mention these at all? Epic fail.

Tomb Raider: Underworld [PC] Screens of the Day – Monday 11 February, 2013


I’ve been a little quiet on here the past week or so but things have been pretty busy with work. In my spare time though I’ve been playing through quite a bit of the most recent Tomb Raider game, Tomb Raider Underworld on PC. This game is really great, visually very impressive for a game that is 4-5 years old already but I’ve been getting pretty excited for the upcoming release of the new Tomb Raider reboot to the franchise due out next month.

In a way I’ve been catching up with the other games before getting stuck into a new Tomb Raider adventure. The new game is a total reboot of the series so it is not a continuation of any original storylines, but hey here are some screenshots taken on my journey so far. These are taken from the Thailand level. I haven’t edited any of these screenshots, many of which were just sitting in my screenshot bin so some may be pretty good, others not so great but I’ll post them all up on here anyway.

Tomb Raider “Turning Point” Debut Trailer 2011


Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have taken the Tomb Raider series to a whole new place, a re-imaging if you will on the character love by millions of gamers worldwide. At E3 this year the debut trailer was released for a new Tomb Raider game set to release late next year. Just looking at the trailer this game looks like its going to be pretty amazing.

The musical score and whole feeling of the game reminds me of epic Final Fantasy games in its scale, most likely as Square Enix (makes of Final Fantasy) are behind the game along side Crystal Dynamics who have produced the more recent (and frankly better) TR games.

Check out the trailer above and tell me this doesn’t make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up! A very different look and direction for a Tomb Raider game, but personally I’ve been waiting for something like this to happen with TR for at least 10 years! Hopefully this is the answer to many gamers calls for a truly epic Tomb Raider story.
