Hi guys,

first of all, I wanted to apologize from the title of this post, but I guess it can't hurt to have a few more people looking around the blog, even if it's for the wrong reasons ;)

And if you have some spare time, I highly recommend you pay a visit to Cracked because it's the funniest website ever.
So, why boobs, you may ask? Because of the choice of the next franchise this blog will tackle! And a warm applause to... Lara Croft!

This choice comes a bit as a surprise for me, because I confess I was expecting to see some kind of close tie-in between Metroid and Metal Gear. Metroid made indeed a nice score, with 5 votes among 23, but Snake didn't get any vote. At all! Well, I'm guessing Lara's dreamy assets and nice adventure setting was more appealing than Snake's Modern Cold War universe. So Lara took the lead with almost half the votes (10 among 23), while the rest of the franchises shared the rest of the votes, with 2 votes for Silent Hill / Dizzy / Jak and Daxter, and only 1 vote for Mario RPGs and Wonder Boy.

Here is the rundown of the titles for the Tomb Raider series :


D1 - Tomb Raider 1996 PSX
D2 - Tomb Raider II 1997 PSX
D3 - Tomb Raider III 1998 PSX
D4 - Tomb Raider : The Last Revelation 1999 PSX
D5 - Tomb Raider 2000 GBC
D6 - Tomb Raider Chronicles 2000 PSX
D7 - Tomb Raider : Curse of the Sword 2001 GBC
D8 - Tomb Raider : The Prophecy 2002 GBA
D9 - Tomb Raider : The Angel of Darkness 2003 PS2
D10 - Tomb Raider : Legend 2006 PS2
D11 - Tomb Raider : Anniversary 2007 PS2
D12 - Tomb Raider : Underworld 2008 PS3
D13 - Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light 2010 PS3
D14 - Tomb Raider 2012 PS3

So that's another series with 14 games in it... We're in for the long run, my friends...

Then again, I can imagine worse company...

The other poll was what I'd call a zombie success. Almost everyone of the voters went for keeping the Resident Evil series a part of this blog. I'm very happy about this result, because I was worried my first choice of franchise might have been a bad one. I'm happy to see a lot of you guys wanting to keep this franchise among us. Guess I'll be back to killing zombies soon! 

Concerning the work at hand, it will be again a few days before I can reinstall my TV set and my PS3, and go back into the dark world of the Legacy of Kain. I'll go for the third game in each of the existent franchises before trying to play the first Tomb Raider, because I think no one want to make A Link to the Past wait more than it should do. You can see the new list of games in the master game list somewhere in the northeastern region of the blog.

See you very soon!

Keep you posted.



  1. You had me at boobs! ;)

    I'm looking forward to re-experiencing the first three Tomb Raiders and seeing what I missed with the rest.

  2. @The Trickster - You too?

    Seriously though, looking forward to seeing how this series goes for you. I've only played a few in the series and am seriously looking forward to next year's release as well.

  3. I've only played the first Tomb Raider, and I need to catch up with your blog. I voted for Jak & Daxter to give you some platforming to mix in with the other games, but Tomb Raider works as well.
