Zoey or Lara… rebooted!

Posted by spiii on March 30th, 2013 @ 20:52

This Zoey or <heroine> review series began with Tomb Raider: Anniversary (see Zoey or Lara…?).
Now we’re going back to our roots to discover if the Tomb Raider reboot is everything you’ve wanted in a cinematic campaign. (Answer: it is!)

Weapon of choice
Lara with her bow
The silent killer (yep, it’s a bow—it’s awesome)
Zoey posed with pistols outs
L4D2 gives Zoey melee weapons, but she still loves pistols
Fashionable upgrades
Lara's hair
finally a good use for GPU physics: hair by TRESSFX
Zoey in KISS skin
mods give Zoey an all new look (and many more)
Looks better wet
Lara hiding in a pool of blood
Lara submerged in blood
Zoey caught by a boomer
Zoey covered in goop
Xbox merchandising
Tomb Raider Xbox controller
Limited edition controller (realistic battle damage!)
Modified Xbox with L4D decals
You’ll have to make your own

So is Tomb Raider worth your dosh? (What is dosh anyway?) If being able to tell your mates “yeah, I got lost on an island with other survivors and I wasn’t watching TV” is as important to you as it is to me, then yes.

In truth, this is one of the best cinematic, story driven single-player games I’ve ever played (if not THE best). If you like that type of game experience, you’ll love this. (It’s got multiplayer but I haven’t tried that.)

Zoey or Gaige…?

Haven’t hit the level cap in Borderlands 2 yet? Wondering if it’s worth the time? If you like Diablo and FPS, you’ll enjoy the RPS approach to looting bazillions of guns (i.e. opening boxes) that is Borderlands 2. But don’t take my word for it—let’s compare heroines!

You may remember Lilith from the original Borderlands. She’s back in a cameo role, but Borderlands 2 serves up 5 new playable classes including 2 heroines, 1 hero, 1 robot and a dwarf.

Weapon of choice
Gaige with gun and Deathtrap
D374-TP “Deathtrap” robot. And a BA gun!
Zoey posed with pistols outs
Zoey’s trademark pistols
Legendary lunchbox
Legendary lunch box: 20% cooler with more pep!

Med pack. Don’t leave home without it.
Gaige minecraft skin
Minecraft caves, minecraft heads, minecraft skins and minecraft weapons!
L4D and hunter minecraft render
Is this is a mod?
The loots be mine!
Golden loot chest
It’s golden, it’s got skulls and contains treasure, me hearties!
Ammo pile
Did a boomer cough this up?
Best backstory?
Echo log 01
Gaige was robbed at the science fair! Echo log 01
Zoey in shock
He was a zombie, Francis! You sure about that Zoey? The Sacrifice comic
Gaige and Deathtrap
Did I mention deathtrap?
Zoey and Ellis
“I’mma reload!”

So is Borderlands 2 worth your dosh? (What is dosh anyway?)
If tickling an uppity worm again and again from different angles in the hopes it might drop a legendary orange item amidst the plethora of green and white junk loot is as important to you as it is to me—then yes!

Happy Halloween!
