Tomb Conditioner: Lara Has Real-Time Hair, Apparently

I'm not sure how amazeballs this really is in practice, as PC Tomb Raider code is being witheld until the end of the week because reasons, but I dig the concept. Game hair's not great, by and large - some engines certainly do OK by it, but the hair-helmet approach very much remains the norm. AMD's come up with some tech to try and make…

Adsolutely Fabulous? Tomb Raider: Underworld ‘Free’

Games move so quickly. Today's AAA title, with a huge marketing spend and adverts, is tomorrow's experimental sales fodder. There's a new Tomb Raider coming out in March this year, so Square Enix have lobbed Tomb Raider: Underworld up on their streaming game service Core. That's the (*counts on fingers*) eighth? Yeah, eighth Tomb Raider game, for fans of chronology. It's "free" up there, which…

Win! Tomb Raider Underworld, Signed By A Girl

Yes - you could be the proud owner of a videogame written upon by a real human female. Specifically, by Keeley Hawes - the agreeably posh voice of Lara Croft, face of 'er out of Ashes to Ashes and of course, most famously of all, silent subject of the video for geriatric pop gibberish-spouters James' She's A Star. SHE IS A PRETTY LADY. She is…

Underworld, Overground, Tomb Raider Demo is Free

Just about to run out the house to get to do my speech thing at Playful - clearly, I only actually wrote it this morning. Like, obv! - when I noticed the Tomb Raider: Underworld Demo has just gone live. I feel a bit sorry for it. In some ways, I share Walker's sympathy for the game, thinking it a shame people are dismissing it…

Watch Out Tigers, Here Comes Lara

Hooray! New Tomb Raider Underworld footage. In previous discussions of this game, I've made sophisticated and erudite arguments about why it's folly to dismiss Tomb Raider as a franchise simply due to over-familiarity. This time I'm taking a more direct approach: If you don't like the Tomb Raider games, you're a fool, and you can't come to my house for tea. And if you need…

Lara’s Killing Gods

The last time Tomb Raider Underworld news came up, I found myself going off on my rant about how stupid people are for not being excited about a consistently excellent game series (apart from that one), that's only getting better with each new release. My frustrations haven't waned. I'm seeing a couple of current mags writing previews of Underworld, saying it looks good, but they're…

E3: The Trailers – Tomb Raider Underworld

She swims! She swims some more! She shoots sharks! And swims! I've yet to play the last two Tomb Raiders, so don't know if the old shtick about drowning Lara still rings true, but she seems more aqualunged to my eye: This video keeps getting pulled down from wherever it's hosted - this is now the fourth version I've put up here. It must be…

Tomb Raider Underworld For November

It's a rather lovely story, the tale of Lara's rescue. Tomb Raider, too infamous to maintain the reputation it deserved, span out of control. People, when reflecting on the series, will recall the first couple and begrudgingly admit that they were really good. But then they'll say things tailed off, descending into generic sequels, eventually finishing in the hideous plane-full-orphans-crashing-into-train-full-of-puppies mess that was Angel of…
