Xbox mullers Tomb Raider fans in London for publicity

Microsoft celebrated the release of Rise of the Tomb Raider by challenging eight Lara Croft fans to survive 24 hours on a billboard while being mullered by brutal weather conditions.  Of the thousands of applicants, just eight were sel...   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

There's a '50% chance' we will see a proper new Legacy of Kain game

Legacy of Kain fans have had a small taste of the universe recently with the free-to-play shooter Nosgoth, but others (myself included) are chomping at the bit for a real, proper action game. Finder AU managed to speak to Crystal ...   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

Rise of the Tomb Raider launch trailer features an original song by Karen O

Rise of the Tomb Raider is just a couple weeks from launch (for the Xbox One at least), so naturally we can expect a launch trailer to keep the hype train rolling. This one comes with an extra tidbit of news, past the new bits of story reve...   read

As we countdown to the launch of Rise of the Tomb Raider, Microsoft has released a new video series called "Woman vs. Wild." The new series will offer "a deep dive into the gameplay mechanics" in Croft's journey.    read

Here is what's in Rise of the Tomb Raider's season pass

It was just last week that we learned Rise of the Tomb Raider would have a season pass. We likely weren't meant to know quite yet, as it was a "oops, it suddenly showed up on a retailer's website"-type of thing. At the time, all that w...   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

Lara Croft probably has some sort of death wish. Mountain climbing can be good exercise and recreation, but I don't think anybody in her right mind would swing from a grappling hook, launch 30 feet, then catch on a vertical rock face with a...   read

Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox 360 looks surprisingly not bad

Microsoft's really leaning into this whole "Rise of the Tomb Raider is an Xbox exclusive for a little while" thing, so the game's coming out on both Xbox One and Xbox 360. But, last-gen is kind of an afterthought, and it's getting hand...   read

Lara doesn't need to murder everyone in Rise of the Tomb Raider

The Rise of the Tomb Raider section of Microsoft's gamescom press conference was filled with knives to the back and arrows to the head. Given the large stage, it's obvious why Crystal Dynamics showed a violent slice of gameplay. Still...   read

Rise of the Tomb Raider is a little easier on Lara (but still kicks the shit out of her)

Lara Croft has never been the best archaeologist. Carefully digging for hours so as to not damage an artifact wouldn't make for a very good video game. Still, there's a disconnect when she knocks over human skulls that are perched on a ledg...   read

Extended Rise of the Tomb Raider video is way better than the E3 trailer

New Rise of the Tomb Raider trailer shows off highly unsafe climbing practices

Tomb Raider (2013) has become the best-selling game in the series
