131. Tomb Raider Chronicles - LOSES WIDEN AT EIDOS PLC
Eidos, the computer games publisher best known for creating Lara Croft, said talks with a potential bidder were continuing on Thursday as it reported wider first-quarter losses amid difficult trading conditions. Eidos, which revealed 10 weeks ago that it was in discussions with an unamed suitor, said the outcome of the talks was too early to determine. It is understood that Eidos has held early stage negotiations with Infogrames Entertainment, the French software company, about a cash and shares offer, but it is not thought that any deal is imminent.

133. Tomb Raider Chronicles - DANIEL CRAIG ON TOMB RAIDER MOVIE
Actor Daniel Craig has spoken out about why he decided to sign for the highly anticipated - but as yet untested - computer game adaptation Tomb Raider, along with its two contractual sequels. Craig, who features in two British movies over the next month - Some Voices and Hotel Splendide, said: What do you do? Do you get a job offer like that and go 'Oh, I can't commit.' I'd hate to think I was nailing my colours to the mast with something that I didn't believe in. I have to do it because it is an experience. I've never done something on this scale before. It will be nice to think if I do this film, I will have more of a choice as to what I do.

134. Tomb Raider Chronicles - FLESHING OUT LARA CROFT TOMB RAIDER
Who is Lara Croft? Is she a relic hunter, a thrill seeker, a marksman, a hero, or just an adrenaline junkie looking for a fix? What secrets from her past compel her to travel the world and track down the rarest ancient artifacts? As the regular writer of Top Cow's Tomb Raider comic book series, Dan Jurgens chronicles Lara's adventures on a monthly basis. However, he never really got a chance to delve into the past of this video-born mystery woman until he wrote the Fandom Exclusive one-shot: Tomb Raider Prelude. Recently, Jurgens took some time out to talk about what went into the creation of this Fandom Exclusive comic book and what it's like writing the regular Tomb Raider series.

The latest version of Tomb Raider will feature a host of improvements as well as a versatile level creator tool. We took a trip down to Eidos to talk with Adrian Smith, Director at Core and all-around nice guy.
