Okay, Okay. I have a serious Tomb Raider fetish and I apologise that my blog has become the new Tomb Raider exclusive page. However now this trailer is out I can calm down and just wait for more game play trailers (that I'll try not to spam you with) on the count down to Lara's November release.

You gotta admit though, it looks pretty awesome. Yes yes it's all CGI but so was the God of War 3 teaser so stfu.

So yeah that will be my last Tomb Raider update for a while (until tomorrow when a new trailer gets put up), stop partying!! Keep your eyes peeled on the official website and tombraiderchronicles.com.

Note: Been playing God of War: Chains of Olympus on PSP and it's pretty awesome.
Note 2: I tried PS3 FNF last night, you guys turned up an hour later so fuck you :P








VIDEO TAKEN DOWN, GO HERE FOR NEW FOOTAGE
Up before the E3 footage tomorrow, and up before the debut trailer on spike TV. Gametrailers presents the first public look at Tomb Raider Underworld.

Commence fapping :D

While short and sweet we get an interesting look at how Lara's new look and actions take place in Underworld. While the 'slow motion' scene seemed a little odd I am really happy with the way Lara is now motion captured! Finally. Anyway, enjoy the new Lara and expect a huge post from me with tomorrows full E3 Tomb Raider coverage!

If they have taken it down then a replacement is here.









Want to win 1 month free of XBL Gold? It's very simple. Make me a new header images. I am growing bored of my current header and require something new, awesome looking and not full of fail and loose!

Anything can be in the header image but it's got to contain the word "atheistium" at least. Make it clean looking and purdy, no crappy and stretched (ie use photoshop and use the right resolutions). Apart from that your free to make as you please. Multiple entries are allowed and I will pick the best 3 that will go into a public vote (unless there is one amazing one I just have to have).

So yeah, get shoooopin' away!

I am sure many of you were expecting me to talk about Lara Croft, but sadly I am not a athletic busty brunette who travels the world with my vast fortune, though Lara is some one I can relate to strongly - I am going to talk about Feena from a little RPG known as Grandia.

A rather miraculous thing happened recently, something that really only happens very rarely for gamers today. About ... 2003 or 4 I sold my copy of Grandia (2001, Playstation) on ebay for around £50. I was extremely sad to see it go as I had probably completed the title over 100 times and had gotten all my characters 100% levelled up with all the spells at max - and that's a feat on it's own! I needed the money pretty badly and after a little ebay browsing found that Grandia was the one title that would get me the most money. It sold, I had money and that was the end of it.. or so I thought. 3 weeks ago I was looking around on ebay and suddenly had the urge to see how much a used copy of Grandia would cost, off to ebay I go! After some browsing I came across a nice little £7.99 buy it now listing. Checking out the pictures on the listing I saw something very curious. The casing was dented and cracked in the same places my original copy was when I sold it back in a day. I brought it on the spot thinking it could be my copy and when it arrived in the post the cracks, creases and apart from a few new creases and disc scratches it was obvious that my copy had returned to me! I know crazy huh!



So Feena, what is so special about her? First of all she's in a jRPG and she's not a wimpy female character. I know it's not very rare to have strong female leads but Feena is one of the most colourful, emotional, interesting and influential I've come across in a jRPG. Not only is she already a fully fledged Adventurer (lol) she is also someone respected and adored by the public in game. A legend if you will. She's boyish and daring, yet had this dramatic past you cling too and throughout the game her real emotions come through. From the moment I saw her climb onto the ship for New Parm with her treasure and the crew surround her with a warm welcome I knew she was going to be awesome. Another big thing to point out that when I was playing Grandia I was the same age as Feena who was 15 in the game, the things she was feeling in her life and her struggles to become grown up and womanly I could really understand and its these many different qualities that drew me to Feena.



A lot of the Grandia RPG is a happy story, which is why I love it so much. The game is so colourful and Feena herself is awash of colours. She's adventurous and cheeky and really takes things in her stride and learns from them. Her character and the world work together so well and watching her go from strength to strength brought me a lot of happy moments. I'll also be a bit honest here... I am a little romantic at heart - as much as I like to see sweet head shots, zombies and blood, I also like to see some romantic goodness blossom in game. Only if it's done well of course and in Grandia you see Feena and Justin get closer and closer. It's so adorable and I love that!

If you have never played Grandia before then please check this link out. Enjoy the gallery below of Feena goodness.

Fans of the upcoming Tales of Vesperia games will be happy to know that Japanese Silver accounts have access to the ToV demo today! For those without a Japanese account here is a how to.

Initial impressions are good. While the voice acting is obviously not the best in choice it's not that bad. The character expressions make up for it however, and the simple environment looks are beautiful. Fans of Eternal Sonata will like the general style the game is sporting and even though I had to sit for a few minutes to work out the whacked out Battle system (press Start during a battle to see the controls).

It's very adorable though and a nice demo to check out if your looking forward to the game.
