Tomb Raider: The Dark Angel Kickstarter launches

The Kickstarter campaign for Peter Connelly’s The Dark Angel Symphony has now launched. “I have the cash, but I don’t deal with the monkey.” Actually, I’m still deciding which tier I’m going to support. Hmm. I like the idea of attending a studio recording… Anyway, for those of you who haven’t heard about The Dark Angel, the aim of the project is […]

Dark Angel Symphony: An interview with composer Peter Connelly

Anybody who’s ever played Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation, Tomb Raider Chronicles or Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness will know just how significant and evocative the game’s soundtracks are. I have many favourites from these titles: that frantic, thumping number that blares out when you try to trap the sword-wielding Minotaur on the streets of Cairo; the dance of the Lux Veritatis; […]

Tomb Raider: An interview with Badassgamez [No Meds]

I remember it vividly. It was about three o’clock in the morning in a dark bedroom in the village of Menston, UK. I was watching Twitch streamer and Tomb Raider expert Badassgamez as he neared the end of his epic quest to complete the original Lara Croft title in one sitting without saving, reloading or – perhaps more impressively – using a […]

The ambitious project – titled The Dark Angel – has been […]

Great news! We finally have some details on the Shadow of the Tomb Raider PC features. Specifically, a tech breakdown from Nvidia GeForce – the GPU manufacturer that promises to deliver a stellar Lara Croft product when the title launches in September. In a beautiful trailer (that will only make sense to those of a computing sensibility) Nvidia reveals that the manufacturer’s […]

Official Tomb Raider board game on its way!

My cup runneth over! Keeping up with all of the Tomb Raider news at the moment is a difficult task, with multiple stories dropping on a daily basis. However, this little piece is particularly exciting… Square Enix has announced that a special Tomb Raider board game is going to be launching in Q1 2019. Titled Tomb Raider Legends: The Board Game, the title promises to […]

The 5 best underwater Tomb Raider levels

With Shadow of the Tomb Raider just one month away, the internet has been a flurry of excitement over the fact that Lara Croft can finally swim! I say “finally” – Lara has been proficient at the breath-stroke since 1996, but the current iteration of my favourite archaeologist has been a little slower to master the skill. Anyway, this seemed like the perfect time […]

Tomb Raider walkthroughs: An interview with Stella

STELLA IMAGE CREDIT: Fabi (@GLaDyGamer on Twitter) OTLEY, WEST YORKSHIRE – ENGLAND: It’s a thundery winter’s afternoon in 1999. I’m holed up in my stepsister’s bedroom desperately trying to claw my way to the end of the Tomb of Qualopec in the very first Tomb Raider game. Rain lashes against the windows as I wrestle with the controls, and my stepsister calmly reads […]

You will die in Shadow of the Tomb Raider

When a video description features the words “terrifying,” “deadly,” “brutal” and “darkest,” you know you’re not about to watch a furry kittens video. The latest footage from Shadow of the Tomb Raider shows off some of the pant-wettingly horrific stuff that Lara Croft will come across on her low-profile perambulation to avert the apocalypse. Check it out… As you can see, […]

Top 5 hardest Tomb Raider levels!

When I talk to people who have never played a Tomb Raider title, their assumption is usually that Lara Croft games are mindless endeavours with an unhealthy pre-occupation with the female form. Trying to convince people that these are intelligent, story-driven action-adventures, crafted with artistic genius, often makes me sound like I’m trying to justify my teenaged obsession with an exploitative franchise. […]

Is this the worst Tomb Raider game ever made?

As a staunch Tomb Raider fan, I feel a bit treacherous writing a post like this. Not unlike Lara herself, recklessly prising the Amulet of Horus from the Tomb of Seth, it’s not my place, and I could unleashed a world of trouble. How can I write a post about the ‘worst’ Tomb Raider game of all time? That implies […]

Tomb Raider on Blu-Ray: Is it any good?

Firstly, let me point out the lengths I went to in order to get hold of Tomb Raider on Blu-Ray – such is my commitment to the cause. The battle of Al Survive vs. The Unhelpful Passive-Aggressive Staff Members of Guiseley Morrisons is one that Lara Croft herself would have been reluctant to enter. I pretty much had to talk […]
