Wow, retro morning. I took a break from downloading the Duke Nukem Forever demo to poke around the web, and I ran across a rather surprising first trailer for the upcoming Tomb Raider game. Have a look for yourself, since you're not gonna believe me when I say it looks really... quite excellent.
The folks at RPS say this game is still a long way from release—could be Q3 2012 before it's out—so Crystal Dynamics, which is developing the game, may have plenty to time to get it right. If they can maintain this sort of mood, production quality, and sexy babe voice/accent quality, they may actually rescue a franchise many had written off, well, mid-way through the Duke Nukem Forever development cycle.
