Crystal Dynamics: Tomb Raider Out Today: The Long & Winding Road

100°
72w 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.

To quote from his blog: Yet another application update, bringing PS3 Game List to v2.1. Due to the major framework revision implemented in v2.0, some of the new features needed more polishing to better suit the app engine.

This version improves PS3GL responsiveness while loading data from multiple media sources (game folders, PKGs, ISOs and RAR compressed files) simultaneously. Basically, it means less time waiting and more time doing stuff that matters.

Another long time requested feature is the ability to manually add a game to the loaded list and search for its updates, even if the game is not in the user’s library. Fret no more, simply add the game to your list and PS3GL will search for its updates (to be fair, it was already possible to do that by importing a standalone game list from Excel).

Speaking of which, PS3GL now exports and imports a game list saved in...
