Replacing Angelina Jolie is hard. My local theatre production of Carmen was disastrously thrown off track when I found out the woman I was in talks with through Craigslist to play the lead turned out not to be the Angelina Jolie, but an Ang...   read

First Rise of the Tomb Raider PC patch mostly just makes sure you can go 'sploring

Rise of the Tomb Raider is quite the good showing from Crystal Dynamics. Good enough, in fact, that we awarded it our Best Xbox Game of 2015. But, when we put it through its paces on PC, we found performance to be lacking, not up to th...   read

Review: Rise of the Tomb Raider - Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch

Rise of The Tomb Raider's main campaign, while lengthy, tries to keep its gameplay grounded for the most part in realistic threats. The game's first story DLC, Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch, turns that on its head, replacing human enem...   read

Review: Rise of the Tomb Raider: Endurance Mode

I'm surprised how much mileage I've gotten out of Rise of the Tomb Raider. While most developers are keen on stuffing multiplayer into every single project, Crystal Dynamics did the right thing but nixing it in Rise, instead adding in a muc...   read

Why are the only interesting parts of Rise of the Tomb Raider's story buried in audio logs?

Pretty boy Steven Hansen enjoyed  our Xbox One Game of the Year Rise of the Tomb Raider, saying that it was "perfunctory Hollywood boilerplate, down to the set up for the sequel, but competently done." I agree with just about ever...   read

Review: Rise of the Tomb Raider

I sometimes forget that Raiders of the Lost Ark came out in 1981. Its breezy pulp adventure quality carries only obvious signifiers of its era (like, Nazis), and the repetition of these tropes act as enough hand waving to the point where Un...   read

Rise of the Tomb Raider actually has tombs

The final "Woman vs. Wild" Rise of the Tomb Raider video has been released and it focuses on the thing many thought the reboot lacked: tombs what to raid. Lara actually does way more archaeology this time around, it seems.   read

Set aside almost 40 hours to completely beat the new Tomb Raider

A fair contingent of game-players equate the amount of #content in a game to whether or not it's a "good deal." It's a mindset that has always struck me as odd. I'll take a streamlined shorter game over an unfocused sprawl any day (ironic, ...   read

Rise of the Tomb Raider trailer shows off hot grappling hook action
