40w ago - Crystal Dynamics Global Brand Director Karl Stewart announced that Tomb Raider is out today and shared details on the long and winding road below.
To quote: Crystal Dynamics - where the Tomb Raider team works - can be found in a complex at the end of a long road in Redwood City in San Francisco. Without laboring the comparison, Tomb Raider's journey from inception to being in stores today has some similarities.
You exit a freeway - in our case the conventional expectations of what Tomb Raider should be, you negotiate a lengthy curve (securing support for a bold new direction), negotiate through the stop signs of constant testing and second guessing before finally enjoying what appears to be a smooth home stretch.
Here's where my comparison breaks down however. While the Crystal team has learned to watch their velocity on approach to avoid speed tickets, Tomb Raider on the other hand has hit the gas and enjoyed a breakneck ride in the past few months to launch. It's a clichéd term but it truly has been a rollercoaster ride for the team - an unforgettable one - to get to this point.

40w ago - Creat Studios VP of Publishing Scott Hyman has announced via Sony's Blog that Germinator oozes to PS3 and PS Vita today with details below!
To quote: Hello again, PlayStation enthusiasts! Scott here from Creat Studios, with an update about our newest game for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, Germinator.
Germinator is available in North America today, March 5th, on both platforms for $9.99. But if you want 'em both, there's a bundle for $14.99.
If you do pick up the game on both platforms, the Cross Save feature will let you save your progress and continue on either platform. We wouldn't want to hold you back from beating the hardest puzzle levels just because you have to leave the house, would we?
We've designed the PS Vita version to take full advantage of the device's touchscreen capabilities. You can direct your Germs to shoot by the touch of a fingertip, and activate Germs special abilities with a quick swipe. Watch the video and see how it plays:
We'll have more info, updates and fun new contest giveaways by following @CreatStudios on Twitter and liking us on Facebook.
