These are pretty skilled and pretty creative at the same time. Some just made me laugh out loud as they were so off the chain.
We’ve been playing games for years and we all agree that the Tomb Raider series has been one of great pleasure and great disappointment during that time. However it has brought more joy than sadness to our lives. To see that IGN felt this new installment deserved a score of 9.1 and compared it to Drake and the Uncharted series really makes it worthy of a purchase so once again we can experience the Tomb Raider love with Lara Croft. Crystal Dynamics looks like it pulled it off and the wait may have been worth it producing a title that will make for some great adventure. The game looks beautiful and the action looks like it will surely get the pulse jumping a few notches along the way. Can’t wait to try this game out!
After 10 years, 1,378 episodes and 6 different sets over 2 cities… Damn I’m really going to miss this show! X-Play guided us toward some of the best games and guided us down the path of gaming bliss when the level up was all that. Adam with his dry comedy, detailed reviews and Morgan with her ever changing styles and great humor that started it all. Oh and Morgan is really hot and plays so that is huge on the AWESOME chart. Also Blair and Kristen fit in nicely as time went by. If you’re a gamer then you’ll get it and if not maybe just check out a video or two.
For all the times you saved us from buying a really shitty game. The times you gave honest opinions of the work from the developers we have grown to love and hate along the way. The skits and parodies that made us laugh. The over the top segments that looked awkward but you still did them. X-Play was a great place to get info on the latest jewels or absolute turds that the industry put out for us to enjoy or wanted to burn with a blow torch. It brings us comfort that we can watch past videos online but the gaming world just won’t be the same without new content.
Thanks for the good times along the way!
And of course Adam.

Okay, every so often a Tomb Raider game is released. Any gamer out there knows that Lara is the absolute bad ass when it comes to female game characters. I have awaited this epic style release for a while. A game where you feel invested in Lara’s well being and trying not to screw up while playing. A game that feels like your playing in a movie. Well, based on the trailers it looks like Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics may have possibly pulled off. I have been following the franchise since the beginning. From the first time I played and heard the special music. Anyone that has played the game knows what I am talking about. That tempo based music that says hurry the fuck up and don’t screw up during specific spot in the games. The times when your adrenaline is pumping as you make that crucial jump or win that fire fight. At the end your Lara Croft and your a bad ass!
Check these trailers out, peeps.

We are really excited about playing this game here at DOC. Might even be a good time to upgrade the surround sound system as the score sounds pretty wicked in the trailers. Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics please don’t screw this up and make up proud.
