1286. Tomb Raider Chronicles - PRELUDE TO TOMB RAIDER 7 IN OPM
Keep Media sends us word on an upcoming issue of Official Playstation Magazine to feature ardent adventurer Lara Croft.

It was a defining moment for me as I watched her strut seductively across my screen and into the sex symbol status that would turn the gaming world on its head. Fast-forward eight years through the evolution of next-gen hardware, multimillion-dollar budgets, and massive acceptance of games in pop culture.
