We're finally talking Tomb Raider. I missed these games back in their prime, but I sure remember them. Lara Croft was EVERYWHERE back in the day, and if people weren't talking about her games, they were talking about certain "codes" that we thought were in the game...
And while I'm sure the powers that be figured "If we give her big triangle boobs, people will talk about them" (which was true), the fact remains that these were pretty important games on their own. I adore the modern Tomb Raider trilogy and the Uncharted series, and I don't know if either would exist without the original Tomb Raider games.
They may not have aged all that well, but I still had a great time raiding my first tomb with Lara. My friend Kait grew up playing these games, and we had a great time talking about how hard it was to jump from platform to platform and killing a T-Rex with a pair of pistols. And yeah, we talk triangle boobs, too.
And before we get into all that, it's another edition of the 'Remember The Game Infamous Intro'!
This week, I talk about how we're entering a new golden age in gaming (in my opinion). I read and respond to a negative review of the podcast. And what are some 'wing and a prayer' games we want to see added to the Nintendo 64 Online service?
PLUS, we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', featuring three of the OG PlayStation's best - Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Metal Gear Solid, and Vagrant Story.
