First, let me just say that I was never a fan of Tomb Raider. To me it just looked like a big-boobed cartoon girl for pre-pubescent boys to drool over while on the computer. However, I can no longer deny that Lara Croft has made a name for herself in the PC/console game world, and she now represents one of the most kick-ass women in video game history. Today at their press conference at E3, Microsoft debuted some live gameplay of the newest installment. Lara spent a good time getting the crap beat out of her and moaning a lot, but overall the gameplay looked amazing and the graphics are out of this world.
Here’s the description provided by Square Enix:
Armed with only the raw instincts and physical ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, Tomb Raider delivers an intense and gritty story into the origins of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor.
This newest Tomb Raider title won’t be released until sometime in 2012, but we do have a trailer to enjoy from Square Enix. View it below, then follow the link to Square Enix’s website for more information.[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRi01tUXc08%5D
