    Damn, I really should get back to playing this.
    Plus, I bought Sunset Overdrive. And got that free copy of Destiny 2 (which I'm not feeling... game kind of feels like a chore)... and Darksiders III next week.

    The hell.

    And, with all this, I've been replaying old games like Soldier of Fortune, and Dark Forces 2...

    Lara the slayer in Tomb Raider 2013 and the two sequels + comics certainly had her moments but yeah Mullins and Soldier of Fortune and it's sequel (Third game? What third game. :p ) were really fun little shooters what with GHOUL and it's successor in the sequel. (Plus it was utilized in the Jedi Knight 2 and Jedi Academy games.)


    (Note, lots and lots of bass. Seems to be a thing with the sound design and gun effects for the first SOF really.)

    Though I think Lara killed more doods overall. (And that's the very first game for this reboot trilogy, she got used to it really quick.)


    In various ways. (That's Rise of the Tomb Raider though.)

    Although the original concept art for the very first game had some out there designs too.

    (ALL the guns, and some severed heads for the skull room in the manor too.)

    That's interesting, seems the ending cutscene differed in the unpatched version of the game.


    Some more references to the prior installments which were then removed for some reason.

    What's that green tube thing hanging from her waste? I can't figure it out.

    I think it's supposed to be a grenade launcher but it looks like she stole Samus Aran's arm cannon from her Metroid games. :D

    EDIT: Huh it's still easy to find the art of Lara from the very first game but try the sequels and it starts jumping to 2013 and the current series instead.

    Though it's basically 1990's video game action heroine I suppose and then the design and character was refined over the sequels though Eidos made some marketing and other deals (Playboy for one.) which as far as I recall the original creator was really not pleased with how that was handled.


    And then comics, books spin-off material including a TV show for a younger audience which I don't know what the final name was but the early name for it was Pre-Teen Raider.
    (EDIT: Ah it's Revisioned: Tomb Raider it seems. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1133805 )


    Will be interesting to hear what the next plans for the franchise is if there is anything assuming sales and such allows for it. Might end up being frozen for a while otherwise but I guess we'll see.

    I think Square Enix is less over-optimistic about sales targets too unlike the Tomb Raider 2013, Hitman Absolution and Deus Ex Human Revolution game revivals and reboots but I don't know what the target was for Shadows of the Tomb Raider and the current already pretty hefty discount is somewhat telling.

    Are the old man's hands trembling due to age diseases or knowing how dangerous Lara can be :D

    Old man Winston probably came right out of the freezer considering that's where Lara keeps the old butler when he's not needed. :p

    My score 6/10
    Was disappointed with how Lara Croft has evolved and the story line was mediocre with Commander Rourke put into the story line as a pretend be antagonist.
    This trinity character never felt real as per ROTTR trinity character Konstantin.

    Heck even Jacob felt more real and personal than the recent #metoo female character of uneratu. Lots of movies and games are promoting the #metoo female character and TBH it's overdone.
