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...

These were the best trailers of E3 2014 photo
These were the best trailers of E3 2014
by Brett Makedonski

That's another E3 in the books. After months of speculation as to what gaming's most important convention might hold, four quick days clear everything up. In a way, it almost feels criminally short given everything that's on display at the show.

While it's impossible to personally see everything at E3, publishers always put their best foot forward by releasing new trailers for almost the entirety of their portfolio. It's a handy practice, as it's a nice marketing tactic to give the world a controlled glimpse of their games.

It's important to remember that trailers need to be taken with a grain of salt. They might accurately portray the title. Rather, they may eventually completely misrepresent the game entirely. Regardless of what the future holds for each, these were the trailers that best captured our attention last week.

Lara Croft needs some psychiatric help in Rise of the Tomb Raider

Impressions: Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
by Chris Carter

Tomb Raider had a rather interesting development cycle. It went from pure hype, to "this looks like an Uncharted clone," to controversy, and back to hype. But all of that dev drama aside, when the game actually came out, I thought it delivered.

As one of my favorite titles of 2013, I really enjoyed Tomb Raider for what it was, and thought it looked pretty gorgeous to boot. Those visuals have been jacked up for the Definitive Edition on the Xbox One and PS4, but that's about all that's been changed. It's still the same great game, for better or worse.

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 on iOS is great, but you'll want a controller
