Lara Croft and the Frozen Omen Comic Preview

Dark Horse Comics has posted a 6-page preview of Lara Croft and the Frozen Omen #1, coming to comic book shops and Dark Horse Digital on October 7.

While not technically a "classic" Tomb Raider adventure, the Frozen Omen storyline focuses on Lara and Carter Bell, her rival turned comrade-in-arms from Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, rather than on the younger heroine featured in the reboot and the upcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider. If, like me, you're a fan of this parallel-universe Lara, you won't want to miss a single issue.

Lara Croft GO Walkthrough Complete

Hey, everybody. This is just a quick update to let you know that I've finished both text and video walkthroughs for Lara Croft GO. I know most of you have probably beaten the game by now, but if you know anybody who needs help, please spread the word.

If you haven't tried the game yet, I highly recommend it. It's a super fun—and very well-designed—turn-based puzzle game inspired by the classic Tomb Raider games. In addition to mobile versions for Android and iOS, there's a Windows version that works on most newer phones and tablets and can also be played with a mouse, rather than a touchscreen, on PCs running Windows 8.1 or Windows 10. (My videos were made using the Windows app on my Win 8.1 laptop.) Windows and Mac users can also buy and play the Android version from the Google Play Store using the Andy Android emulator.

I have only one complaint about Lara Croft GO and it's a minor one: They haven't announced a sequel yet!
