147w ago - SCEE Content Producer Simon Bramble has revealed a Q&A today for Tomb Raider PS3 dubbed Searching for Lara Croft.

To quote: Lara Croft is returning in a completely new Tomb Raider that takes the series in a grittier new direction.

I recently caught up with Noah Hughes, creative director Crystal Dynamics, to explore this new adventure.

How does it feel to be bringing Lara back in an all-new take on the Tomb Raider series?

Noah Hughes: It's an honor to be able to not only work with Lara Croft and Tomb Raider, but also to be able to reboot the franchise. I've been at developer Crystal Dynamics for a while now, and we've had the pleasure of making a few games starring Lara. We've learned a lot. To be able to distill everything we want to do with the franchise into an entirely fresh take is inspiring.

So it's a totally new direction for the series?

NH: It is. It's a reboot and not directly related to the timeline of Lara as such, but it will touch on familiar elements of her character. You'll see her grow into the hero figure that fans know and love.

188w ago - Eidos Interactive Group Community Manager Keir Edmonds has revealed today that Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is coming to PSN later this month.

To quote: I'm here to give you the lowdown on Crystal Dynamics' latest offering Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

In case you haven't seen any LCGoL news over the last few weeks and months, here's the skinny. I have decided to boil the key info down into bullet points because I like to waffle.

"Wait... what?" - Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light isn't a Tomb Raider?!

Crystal Dynamics are currently working on two projects. One of them is Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, the other one is another game which I can't mention or I'd get sacked *cough* Tomb Raider *cough*.





The studio had a chance to really experiment and do something new and exciting with LCGoL. As a result they've crafted an arcade style digital download that draws on all the fundamental aspects you'd associate with Lara (including great puzzles) but also added some fresh elements. It is made of win. It really is made of win...

I had the good fortune of demoing LCGoL at E3 this year. Everyone who got their hands on the game enjoyed...

The video game is heading to Xbox Live on August 18th, however, Guardian of Light will not feature online multiplayer until Sony's PS3 and PC users join the party.

From October to December, there will be five additional downloadable packs that will be made available.

Although the specific content of these packs is still unclear, we do know that the first three will be standard expansions that feature new puzzles, exploration sequences and combat scenes. The following two downloadable packs will introduce new characters into the mix."

202w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has shared a video preview of Qore Episode 25 today, which includes Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Green Day Rock Band, PixelJunk Shooter 2 and Clash of the Titans.

To quote: Lara Croft is back, and this time she's joined by a fierce Mayan warrior named Totec. The Guardian of Light is a new, multiplayer co-op title coming to the PlayStation Network.

Qore Host Veronica Belmont visited developer Crystal Dynamics to bring you up-to-date on Lara's action-packed, puzzle-solving adventure...a departure from the Tomb Raider series.

It's hard to believe 16 years ago Green Day achieved mainstream success with the release of Dookie, and today they've got a Broadway musical and their own version of Rock Band.

Qore caught up with Billie Joe, Tre, and Mike in advance of the release of Harmonix's Green Day Rock Band, which features – for the first time – new motion-capture technology of the power punk trio to bring their live stage performances to life.
