Tomb Raider is one of those rare videogame franchises that has permeated into mainstream culture; and yet in the last decade, the series has struggled to keep up with similar action/adventure titles. In January, Ninja Theory showed exactly how to reboot a classic videogame series with DmC: Devil May Cry, so has Crystal Dynamics been able to do the same for Tomb Raider?
Crystal Dynamics have revealed the collector’s editions for the upcoming Tomb Raider game, releasing next March.
An abundance of items are included that should please Lara Croft fans, and we know we’ll be spending hours posing her.
Square Enix has revealed their pre-order plans for Tomb Raider, and it comes in three rounds of content. The first round includes retailer specific incentives for North American stores including GameStop, Amazon.com, and Best Buy.
Last week, the PlayStation Vita received an update that finally adds support for PSone games on the fledgling handheld. PS3 Attitude is helpfully on-hand with a comprehensive guide to everything you could ever want to know about PSone classics, and how to get the most out of this long-awaited feature on the PS Vita.
With the dazzling opening ceremony last Friday, there was only one theme we could choose for this week’s article: the Olympics! Specifically, we’ve been discussing some of the biggest heroes on PS3, and which sports they would dominate in at the London Games. It’s fair to say that Bradley Wiggins, Michael Phelps, and Usain Bolt et al would have nothing on these guys.
Last year, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix wowed us with a darker and grittier Lara Croft than we’ve seen before. Rebooting the franchise to before Lara was the gun touting, ass kicking heroine we’re familiar with, Tomb Raider depicts a fragile girl who is thrust into danger and must survive at any cost. While we weren’t able to go hands-on with the game, we did get to see a lengthy gameplay demo that expanded on what was shown during Microsoft’s press conference.
Lara was one of the highlights of E3 2011. Her pre-show CG trailer captured the imagination and proved that the old – now young – First Lady of Games was still relevant. The live demo at the show also offered a lot of promise.
Tomb Raider has been delayed until the first quarter of 2013, Crystal Dynamics announced on the official forums. The highly anticipated game now joins BioShock Infinite as titles that will miss their original fall 2012 release date. But hey, at least 2013 is shaping up to be a fantastic year, right?
We’ve moved on from 2011, but what a fine year it was. It was a year packed with many highlights: Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Portal 2, Skyrim, L.A. Noire and Uncharted 3 and Batman: Arkham City, to name just a few.
But we now turn our collective eyes towards the gems 2012 will bestow on us, and it looks set to be another fantastic year.
Over two articles, the PS3 Attitude’s writers are selecting their three most anticipated games of 2012. Staff writers Stefhutch20 and Ryanmoto3 put their votes forward in part 1 and editors DolphGB, Majiesto and Seanoc are following up now.
So without further ado, here are the hottest PS3 games of 2012, selected by Team Attitude.
Another year over. A new one just begun.
2011 was a real corker for the PlayStation 3. And for PS3 Attitude too. We got up to all sorts of shenanigans over the last twelve months, and some of us still have the bruises to prove it.
But this isn’t going to be one of those lame retrospective list articles that counts down our favourite moments from the last year. Oh no. This is 2012. This is about what comes next.
So strap yourselves in and get ready for the ride.
One of the definite highlights of this year’s E3 was the rebirth of the Tomb Raider franchise. Crystal Dynamics’s unveiling of a younger, greener Lara Croft is easily one of the most visually pleasing trailers the industry has ever seen.
So how is it that a trailer for Deus Ex: Human Revolution integral in making this breathtaking trailer possible?
At this year’s E3, 46,800 industry professionals, journalists, retailers and analysts arrived in LA to experience the videogame industry’s biggest event of the year, and with over 200 exhibitors promoting their latest games and hardware, this year was arguably the biggest ever.
We cannot offer you a complete guide to E3 2011 (that would require writing a book), but we can give you this neat list featuring 10 thing that caught our attention during this year’s show. We had great games and impressive hardware on show and a lot of stuff happening in-between. Enjoy.
Tomb Raider’s pre-E3 CG trailer showed us a new Lara and a bold new direction for the series. It still looks like an adventure game, but it now has more than a strong element of survival horror about it, and from what we’ve seen so far, it gives the series an edge it hasn’t had for years.
Excitement is building, for the first time in years, for a new Tomb Raider, as Crystal Dynamics show off their blueprint to getting gamers in love with Lara once again.
The stunning pre-E3 debut trailer reveals a new Lara, completely different from the bold and confident personality from past adventures. She appears young and in over her head.
We have been told to forget everything we know about Lara Croft, because the next iteration in the series is to be a different beast altogether, and the incredible new assets that arrived in our inbox today are certainly giving credence to that statement.
In preparation for their upcoming reboot of the Tomb Raider series, Crystal Dynamics is planning on releasing The Tomb Raider Trilogy this coming March. The collection will feature Legend, Anniversary, and Underworld.
Both Tomb Raider Legend and Anniversary, previously released on the PS2, will be remastered in high definition. Underworld, having already been released on the PS3, will forgo said remastering.
It’s been a month of drinking, eating, and spending time with loved ones, and a month for announcements – big announcements. The following games were unveiled: Uncharted 3, The Elder Scrolls V, Mass Effect 3, SSX Deadly Descents, and a new Tomb Raider; it is a very impressive list. We also learned more about some of 2011’s most exciting games: Homefront, DiRT 3, L.A. Noire, Batman: Arkham City, Resistance 3 and Bulletstorm.
There weren’t many new releases, but the Vietnam expansion pack for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 was a highlight. We also got some demos – and yes, a demo can be a highlight, but only just. Here is the re-cap of the month…
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light takes the well known tomb raiding heroine on her most enjoyable adventure yet. Gone are the days of solo expeditions, slow methodical platforming, and clunky gunplay mechanics.
Instead, the Guardian of Light is a faster paced action platformer with an emphasis on cooperative gameplay and clever puzzles. Even the viewpoint is different, with the camera now taking an isometric perspective instead of the 3rd person viewpoint the Tomb Raider series is known for.
Lara Croft fans will not be disappointed with this much needed departure.
The Tomb Raider series is getting rebooted by developer Crystal Dynamics. We’re told to forget everything we know about Lara Croft and according to January’s edition of Game Informer, the new game will explore the origins of Lara.
Simply titled Tomb Raider, the game is about a young and inexperienced Lara surviving in the wild.
