Or maybe Raiderisms? Reppin' mah Tomb
Monday FTW. It's been a long time comin', but it finally came.

One of the big games that came out last week was Tomb Raider. It being a big reboot with marketing and controversy all around it made almost certain that people would look to see what happened with it. There was a fear that it would be sexist in some manner, mostly because a choice person or two opened their mouth and said stupid things.

I don't know if I should do a review proper, because I barely touched the multiplayer. It wasn't very fun. But I can say, based purely on the single-player, I would recommend purchasing. I think there were some missteps in making Lara more "human," because the violence is a little crazy, but overall is was just straight-up good. The open-ish island is nice for exploring when you're not in gunfights, with lots of secrets to uncover. There are some neat optional "tombs" to go through, though they're incredibly short and pretty simple. It's more fun to explore the island, which is where everything takes place throughout the entire game. One big ol' island.
Oh man I'm running out of time again...
In short: Lara is a bad motherfucker that now feels a bit more like a person. It's a damn fun game, with solid shooting, so-so melee options, good exploring, beautiful visuals, an okay story, and zip-lining like fucking crazy. I really enjoyed this game. Probably my favorite Tomb Raider.

Whilst raiding tombs, I found these ancient CAPS, for you:




* - UsurpMyProse has a lovely tribute to the top 10 games he will never touch, because of that evil bastard Steam.

* - NickCull may have found the fountain of youth. (Hint: it's videogames)

* - WILL YOU BE PAYING ONE THOUSAND MOTHER FUCKING DOLLARS FOR A VAPOR CUBE?? THIS ORWELLIAN ZOMBIE WRITER (WHO IS HIM) SURE WON'T!!

A - What's the first image in your head when someone say, "female NPC?" Does it involve someone nude or bloody? GlowBear says, "Yo; goober! Where's the meat?"

P - Words of Crom returns after a brief hiatus with Episode 13: A Video Game of Thrones.

A - Scary Hair Studios completes "Four In February" and writes about it. Good stuff!

A - Indie Spirit. Why doesn't it exist pervade the industry moreso? I hate to bust out Captain Obvious, but DanielCampbell thinks there is hope.



C - VoyToid needs to pay off some student loans, so he's having a really nice sale on some 360 and Wii games + bonus stuff.

S - OmegaPlatinum has some GREAT PAX tips for y'all. Are you ready?

C - Neonie is back around, and has some thoughts on what Dtoid should do for him. Video content seems important to him. Proper promotion of proper video content. Get to it, Dtoid!

D - See how POstudios teamed up with Jane Jensen and how they got more betterer at writing.

T - lv99ron is back up in the blogs, and loves him some Kamen Rider. I have to agree, Battride War looks fapworthy. Import that suckaaaaa

T - Paul Allen (Hey Paul!) talks about the fancy PC bits inside the PS4.

R - Warriors: Legends of Troy gets a "NO" out of 10.

T - pk fire plays the Monster Hunter Ulitmate 3 demo in front of people who become horrified. It is pretty brutal when you think about it...

T - MMORPG trailers are...very similar. Carsten Busold shows us the way.

V - Colorwind a.k.a. Rainbow Fart a.k.a. Esteban Sky Cuevas(?) playes the Genesis game Eternal Champions. get some nostalgia!

R - DanielCampbell video reviews Arcadecraft, an XBLIG. Looks pretty good!

T - ANGER. Daata6 has it. You know what guys? Just don't buy SimCity. Don't.



C - "Turning ones into zeroes isn't murder." That's a goddamn lie!!

Lets Do Launch

In case you've been living under a rock or just waiting on NieR: Automata (thanks for the delay Amazon!), Nintendo just launched its newest console. Whether it's a success or a failure remains to be seen, but many people have bought themselves this shiny new console for their home. It's been a while since we've seen this sheer amount of excitement over a console, and a Nintendo one, no less, considering the amount of goodwill they probably have since the Wii U.

But the QP has been having endless buzz over the Switch, despite concerns over hardware faults in the Joy-Con or cheaply produced docks. Personally, I'd love one despite the lack of software on day one. I mean, I could play Zelda while at work. And not a handheld Zelda either. A proper, huge console-designed Zelda! Asides from that, it's all about the love of having shiny new tech in your hands. So that's what this month's bloggers wanted will be about: console launches, the hype and the release into getting it into your hands.

To participate, title your blog "Let's Do Launch: [your title here]" and use the "Bloggers Wanted" tag, and in a general sense, talk about your favorite launches. We've had the PS4 and Xbone years back but were we genuinely excited or just looking forward to it? Or how about where you were when the GameCube released? Don't worry too much about celebrating the exact launch date, either. I still clearly remember the time I got my Sega Genesis from Costco, complete in a bundle with Ecco the Dolphin and Donald Duck's QuackShot.

Don't worry about being positive or timely. Did you grow up to see the Vectrex launch? Go ahead and enlighten us youngins about how much of a love/hate relationship you may or may not have. Still rocking an Ngage? I'm sure you are. So how did it feel to purchase such a mistake of the universe? Go ahead and let us know, and eventually, we'll get around to promoting it to the front page!
