so I got myself the tomb raider ps3 trilogy (legend/anniversary/underworld) because it was hella inexpensive, and wow its actually SUPER GOOD! I wasn’t expecting much from the franchise since it was dropped by Core after angel of darkness, but its still true to the game which satisfies my nostalgia. I did kind of look forward to seeing what Crystal Dynamics would do differently, hoping they’d bring something new to it, but I guess they’re saving that for the reboot? the reboot does look quite far from what you’d expect from a tomb raider game.
anyway, just started playing Legend and its pretty hot so far. I guess I’ve got a few nitpicks, mainly that hard mode is bullshit and enemies just fucking give up and die of natural causes. that, and lara isn’t as vocal as she used to be while dying, which makes it much less satisfying to kill her. I mean, drowning her was basically my sole method of blowing off steam before I discovered she had massive boobs. slightly worrying how often those two hobbies coincide.
