Is Red Dead Redemption 2 too long?

Yes I’m going there. It’s always so much easier to nit-pick as opposed to praise, and with Red Dead Redemption 2 receiving such unanimous acclaim from every corner of the internet, I feel it’s my moral duty to chime in with my niggles about this beautifully crafted game, with which I have a complex relationship. Oof. There is no denying the […]

Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Square Enix sees net sales decline

Disclaimer: this is going to be the least mathematical financial analysis you have ever read. Enjoy! So I’m sure you’ve all lost loads of sleep poring over the finer details of Square Enix’s six month financial report(!) which appears to paint a somewhat negative monetary picture if you’re a shareholder / company exec / person who understands money. In short, Square […]

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.

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 […]

Shadow of the Tomb Raider music is unleashed!

Square Enix has unleashed the Shadow of the Tomb Raider music on the world! Well, some of it. Last week, three new tracks were uploaded onto the official Tomb Raider YouTube account, offering a tantalising glimpse into the atmos that’s going to envelope us in Lara’s latest adventure. It’s all been realised by a “unique music team” led by a […]

Is there a problem with the Shadow of the Tomb Raider graphics?

Historically, Tomb Raider graphics have been at the forefront of innovation. When the original game was released in 1996, its lushly-realised caverns and valleys sent shockwaves through the world of gaming. Then, in 2003, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness – whilst glitchy – looked absolutely incredible. Similarly, 2013’s Tomb Raider reboot raised the bar with some noticeably strandy hair atop […]
