I recently got this months edition of Gameinformer, and just browsing through my eye caught glimpse of the new Tomb Raider. Set to release this coming March, I started to read the article. I saw the demo on E3 2012 and upon watching it I was automatically hooked and excited. I have always been a huge fan of the Tomb Raider games. Who wouldn’t love to play a very attractive archeologist that hunts for treasure and kicks the crap out of anyone in her way? After reading the article I got to thinking. This game has a strange resemblance to the Uncharted games. Coincidence? Until I play this game I can’t bash it very much, but just from the demo, the article, and the game play pictures, they look similar. Lora running through the forest, hanging from a chopper, climbing, who knows. I don’t want to go in depth just looked familiar. For the most part, I am very excited about this game release, and for the record I love Uncharted 1-3. No hard feelings just a thought.
What happened to the days when you could just turn on your console, put in a game, and play until the sun went down. Grant you, it is still possible to pull a pretty gruesome all nighter running through a hail of gunfire playing COD on release night, with a 12 pack of Redbull. But game creators and the “big wigs” making the consoles have forgotten the basis of gaming. To put it simply, they are putting too much frosting on the cake! I don’t need Hulu, Netflix, Nickelodeon, Facebook, and all that other TV stuff on my console jamming it up. Honestly isn’t that why we have computers? It is cool to have sometimes, I do enjoy my Netflix. Somethings can just be too much, and too overwhelming. If someone has never owned a newer generation console, just starting it up may seem like rocket science….. Should I call Tech Support? Anyways, with the fast moving world of gaming things are surely just going to get bigger and better, so they say. All in all, as long as the games get better and better I guess I’ll deal with all the madness on my dashboard….Enough said!
