Square Enix confirms
Ever since Microsoft's gamescom exclusivity reveal, there's been plenty of speculation about the state of Rise of the Tomb Raider. Although it was soon found out to be a timed-exclusive, there are still many uncertainties sur...
I know the suspense is killing you
Tomb Raider II is by far my favorite Lara Croft adventure. Although the visuals are dated by today's standards, the locales and sense of adventure pretty much have no equal for me. I remember spending roughly 30 hours pl...
Enslaved is the true hidden gem here
Lara Croft's gearing up for another grandiose adventure -- this time in the Temple of Osiris -- and before that happens, Microsoft's giving you the opportunity to brush up on your tomb raiding and loot thieving. This wee...
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is shaping up to be a good time as a four-player venture. I played it at gamescom 2014, and it was a lot of fun. However, maybe that's because I didn't have a jerkface in my group tha...
Haha, yeah right
A Rise of the Tomb Raider FAQ has popped up on the official Tomb Raider tumblr account, and it answers some of the questions you've had since the fateful "holiday 2015 Xbox exclusive" announcement. It clarifies that...
He also briefly talks about EA Access
President of Sony's Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida is a pretty candid dude, and I respect that. Eurogamer recently sat down with the Sony boss to talk shop, mostly about gamescom announcements and a few other developme...
It's more of a response to Uncharted than anything
Inking an exclusivity deal for Rise of the Tomb Raider may have made Microsoft look like a villain, but that certainly wasn't the company's intention.
In an interview with Eurogamer, Xbox boss Phil Spencer attempted to d...
She likes shootin' and lootin'
Which Lara Croft do you prefer? Crystal Dynamics has two versions of her, splitting the iconic character into distinctly different properties. The recent Tomb Raider reboot and the scheduled follow-up Rise of t...
Maybe you would rather wait

Except for that Tomb Raider thing
Microsoft's press conferences often leave me with cranial damage from head-to-desk impact, but their gamescom 2014 presser felt pretty okay to me. I'm excited to see Microsoft making an attempt to partner with more indies. A...
Why couldn't you just say that yesterday, Microsoft?
Put down your pitchforks, people. As it turns out, Rise of the Tomb Raider isn't really an Xbox exclusive. According to Xbox boss Phil Spencer, the deal "has a duration."
Microsoft didn't say that during its gamescom presenta...
It sounds like it's not timed
Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming to the Xbox One as an exclusive in 2015. For how long though? Crystal Dynamics Head of Studios Darrell Gallagher has an answer to that question, and you might not like it.
Speaking on the sub...
Yep. Rise of the Tomb Raider, the latest from Crystal Dynamics, is coming to Xbox only. This was announced today at Microsoft's gamescom press conference. Note that "Xbox" was said, and not a specific console. Maybe it'll come to both Xbox One and Xbox 360.
Whatchu think 'bout that?

According to an Amazon UK listing
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...
In no particular order
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 ...
'We become who we're meant to be'
Lara Croft had a rough time on her last archaeological expedition. It's no wonder that she would suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, or experience some other negative psychological effects. During Microsoft's E3 pres...
Publisher registers two new domains this weekend
Square Enix registered a pair of web domains related to Tomb Raider just days prior to E3.

5-6 million was the first month expectation -- it's taken a year
The Tomb Raider reboot had series high day one and month one sales, according to studio head Darrell Gallagher. Despite this, Tomb Raider's estimated 3.4 million first month sales were deemed a "slow start" by Square Enix, wh...
Definitive version, not so definitively priced
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...
See what's new
We saw the comparison video, now developer Crystal Dynamics shows us exactly what went down to making Tomb Raider all next-gen-y. Lara looks more lifelike than ever, especially with her facial expressions as her face was re-...

With blow-by-blow commentary from my wife
Our friends over at IGN just posted a video comparing Tomb Raider to Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, along with an interview with with developer Scot Amos. It's a nice interview, but it's a lot of preaching to the...
A 20-minute film well worth your time
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.
Sonic and Final Fantasy on the go and on the cheap
Hopping on the old St. Nick bandwagon, both Square Enix and Sega are sharing the holiday spirit with sales on some of their mobile games for iOS and Android platforms.

Army Corps of Hell -- $14.99
Pretty much unplayable with touch controls
In case you haven't heard, the original Tomb Raider is available on iOS for a buck. I was trying it out yesterday, and I have to say, so long as you're using a controller option, the game works like a charm. The only han...
Because why not
Square Enix just released the original Tomb Raider for iOS, and it's just $0.99. The old Tomb Raider games were really good, so it's tempting to grab this for this cheap. It comes with the extra chapters from the 1998 re-rele...
