Or maybe Raiderisms? Reppin' mah Tomb Monday FTW. It's been a long time comin', but it finally came.
One of the big games that came out last week was Tomb Raider. It being a big reboot with marketing and controversy all around it made almost certain that people would look to see what happened with it. There was a fear that it would be sexist in some manner, mostly because a choice person or two opened their mouth and said stupid things.
I don't know if I should do a review proper, because I barely touched the multiplayer. It wasn't very fun. But I can say, based purely on the single-player, I would recommend purchasing. I think there were some missteps in making Lara more "human," because the violence is a little crazy, but overall is was just straight-up good. The open-ish island is nice for exploring when you're not in gunfights, with lots of secrets to uncover. There are some neat optional "tombs" to go through, though they're incredibly short and pretty simple. It's more fun to explore the island, which is where everything takes place throughout the entire game. One big ol' island.
Oh man I'm running out of time again...
In short: Lara is a bad motherfucker that now feels a bit more like a person. It's a damn fun game, with solid shooting, so-so melee options, good exploring, beautiful visuals, an okay story, and zip-lining like fucking crazy. I really enjoyed this game. Probably my favorite Tomb Raider.
Whilst raiding tombs, I found these ancient CAPS, for you:
Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment Better With Age E3-hype has died down, so let's talk about those oldies that are still great. Which games do you replay over and over again, while only finding yourself enjoying them more each time?
Band of Bloggers: Open Range Go to any open world you can think of, but be sure to come back with a story to tell! Aside from the traditional review or retrospective route, try to create something unique! Detail what makes the world you explored so interesting and how it stands out, compare and contrast similar worlds, create a story of your own in that world.
