Abnormal Mapping 59: The Crystal Dynamics Tomb Raider Pentalogy

tr5games

Hello and welcome to 2017 where we’re getting right into the thick of it with a podcast covering five whole video games today. What happens when you take a decade to tell the story of two women equally dedicated to murdering, climbing, exploring, and looting, and pit them against each other? Today we look at two generations of design by a single company, and ask the question: what exactly is Lara Croft’s job? Because she sure isn’t selling these artifacts or writing papers.

Things Discussed: Moderns Warfare 1-3, New Super Mario Bros. U, Super Mario Run, Super Mario Sunshine, Things Were Better Before, the surprisingly nice looking 360 Version of Rise of The Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider Legend, Tomb Raider Anniversary, Tomb Raider Underworld, Tomb Raider (2013), Rise of the Tomb Raider, Hitman, E3, Our Yakuza 3 Episode, Danganronpa

This Month’s Game Club: Tomb Raider Legend, Tomb Raider: Anniversary, Tomb Raider Underworld, Tomb Raider (2013), Rise of the Tomb Raider

Next Month’s Game Club: Katamari Damacy
