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

Lara Croft goes on an acid trip in the Rise of the Tomb Raider 'Baba Yaga' DLC

Rise of the Tomb Raider didn't get nearly enough respect, but that's partially on Microsoft and Square Enix, who divined the odd "is it or isn't it a timed exclusive" strategy that's confused people for months now. The Baba Yaga DLC l...   read

Lara Croft GO's new expansion is sadistic

Is Rise of the Tomb Raider the best Uncharted?

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

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