1262. Tomb Raider Chronicles - TOBY GARD TO SPEAK AT E3 2005
Lara Croft creator Toby Gard will use the E3 forum to speak about his role as senior designer with U.S. based studio Crystal Dynamics where he is back working on the digital icon he help create during his tenure at Core Design in 1995. From the press junket: "The more compelling the character, the more likely gamers will want to associate and 'play with' that character. Tomb Raider's Lara Croft is devoted to her mission. Grand Theft Auto's 'CJ' plays by his own rules. In the upcoming Psychonauts, straight-arrow Raz is earnest and honest as they come. "

1263. Tomb Raider Chronicles - WHEREFORE ART THOU TOMB RAIDER 7?
As of 1500 GMT, no press release has been issued by UK publisher Eidos announcing the return of British adventurer Lara Croft in Tomb Raider 7. Fervent speculation during the past few weeks fuelled the popular belief (read: hope) that Eidos would use Feb 14th as a gravy train for spectacularly unveiling a new Tomb Raider from new developers Crystal Dynamics. But as Monday 14th Feb draws its tired eyes over the UK - and laden with gloomy faces and an air of disappointment - we're preparing to write off another great PR opportunity for Eidos.

1265. Tomb Raider Chronicles - TOMB RAIDER 7 TO BE ANNOUNCED MON..?
By far the most popular question our readers have asked in recent times has been the query of when will Eidos announce Tomb Raider 7 as the Q4 2005 release date Eidos touted in 2004 looms ever closer. While there has been a considerable volume of speculation as to why Eidos have remained silent for so long, it is our opinion that an announcement is now immediately forthcoming, and our money is on February 14th, 2005. The most obvious reason for selecting this date would be because it's their leading lady's birthday, and crafted carefully the PR momentum attached to that train would most certainly propel the build-up of anticipation and overall excitement to near-hype status until the game finally hits the shelves.
