It might not be fair, but I’m going to be comparing this Tomb Raider to the Laura Croft Tomb Raider in 2001 for the whole review. Because if you’re going to reboot something, you really should make it better. And I’ll spoil the surprise right here: this Tomb Raider wasn’t better at all. You may well be sitting there thinking ‘duh- I saw the trailer’, and you’d be right. But I was rooting for it, I went in wanting to see a good film. Then Alicia Vikander came on and thanked us for watching her movie and my brain automatically tacked on the words “… even though it sucks”. Like I’ve said before, the thanks you get for watching a movie should be a great movie. You shouldn’t need to be grateful for people filling your seats, you should be confident. Star Wars is.

Movies based off popular video games definitely have a rough history in Hollywood. Between awful films like Assassins Creed and Warcraft to the mediocre Resident Evil franchise, it is very difficult to actually get excited when a movie based off a video game is announced.

It’s that time of year again when we all argue over what game was the best out of all the amazing games released in the months past. But how can one game really be better than another? How can Monster Hunter be better than Call of Duty? How can Fall Out be better than Mortal Kombat? There is so many different styles of games that all stand out in their own unique ways which is why I’ve taken the time that could be spent playing games to consider which games stand out from all the great work we’ve received this year.
This week seems to be releasing most of its games on Tuesday the 10th and it just so happens to be some of this years biggest titles.
I typically don’t get too hyped about app games, they usually feel like a fad that dies for me shortly after. I can honestly say that Lara Croft Go does not suffer from the same lack of long term draw that many apps do.
It’s Friday again and that means its time to lock up the office, drop those tools and pick up those controllers. What better way to start your weekend gamefest then by recapping all of this weeks hard hitting video game news!
At the end of the Xbox press conference, Phil Spencer said it best himself. “If you’ve been waiting to make the switch from your Xbox 360, now is the time”. And boy was he right!
