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:
For this month's prompt, let's look back in time on our favorite games, then bring our gaze back to the present. Back then, Pokémon had 150 different monsters to collect, psychic types and ghosts were pretty strong, and the only reliable method of hatching eggs was riding a bike downhill on that bike path outside Celadon. Now, Pokémon has added three new types, psychics were toned down considerably (maybe too much until we see how Sun and Moon do), and we've since seen running and even rollerblading added to help in egg hatching.
