Rise of the Tomb Raider might be on last-gen consoles too

Lara Croft may have moved onto new and exciting hardware, but that might not mean that she's seen the last of the faithful standbys from yesteryear. It appears as if Rise of the Tomb Raider, the franchise's next installment s...

The new Lara Croft adventure is all sorts of fun with four players

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light was pretty fun for what it was: a new take on the beloved character where you're running and gunning with a friend through all sorts of dangers.  Now, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is bringing that same formula over to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, with the major addition being four-player co-op. Quadruple the fun!

Guardian of Light's free now for Xbox Live Gold members photo
Guardian of Light's free now for Xbox Live Gold members
by Brett Makedonski

It's time for another predictable but helpful bi-weekly reminder that a new game is free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. This time, it's 2010's Summer of Arcade title Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. Of course, this offer won't be on the table once February rolls around.

The twin-stick shooter is held in high regard by most, especially fans of co-op play. Go ahead and give this one a download if you meet that whole "don't already own it and an Xbox Live Gold member" criteria. The worst that can happen is that you just feel the need to hit that delete button.

Tomb Raider fan film captures the brutality perfectly

Lots of fan films are great, but this Tomb Raider is above and beyond the average homage you'd normally see. The team at CanCinema did an amazing job, and it captures the brutality that the new Tomb Raider brought to the series.

Tomb Raider comes to Mac later this year

While we're a bit light on details, we do know that Feral Interactive are bringing Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider to Mac later this year. They say to expect a mini-site soon for the game, which likely means that they're almost done with it.  I assume this trailer is Mac footage.
