2261. Tomb Raider Chronicles - CORE DESIGN ANNOUNCES CHRONICLES
Tomb Raider Chronicles features four of Lara Croft's previously untold exploits, each comprising a separate adventure offering brand new insights into her past. The game takes place only a few days after The Last Revelation, beginning at a memorial service for Lara - her body has not been found. After the service Jean Yves, Winston and the family Priest, Father Dunstan, retire to Croft Manor. As they collect their thoughts they reminisce about some of Lara's past adventures, each of which is introduced via FMV 'flashback' sequences. The locations for Chronicles' four adventures feature the city of Rome, a German U-boat, a small Irish Island and a hi-tech tower block.

2263. Tomb Raider Chronicles - ACTION CONTINUES ON TOMB RAIDER SET
Mystery and intrigue has shrouded the set of Tomb Raider recently, with only small pieces of information surfacing on the current status of the movie. A Film Forces spy has this to say. I saw a pretty simple scene. It was set at Hatfield House in North London, which looks quite good - it fits in well with the Lara Croft style. Angelina looks good in this scene - you can tell that's she's physically fit and she really does look like Lara (even though in this particular scene she had a white outfit on).

2264. Tomb Raider Chronicles - TOMB RAIDER CHRONICLES: PROLOGUE
The wrath of Horus hones in on Lara Croft, the ground beneath her rocks, unbalancing her, her stammered stance kicking up tiny whirlwinds of dust as fragments of small rocks rain down, a blizzard of dust, partially obscuring the safe path through the toppling pillars. Lara is running now, her heart beating it's way through her chest, the beads of sweat a torrid storm across her forehead, she launches herself over a spike-filled pit, eyeing through the corner of her blurred sight the fate that lay beneath her. Hurriedly, she scampers, leaves the pyramid as a myriad of explosions amplify around the open space she once stood in, support pillars continue their almost motionless glide to earth, ricocheting all around her, as a huge portion of the ragged ceiling, lined with stalactites, silently detaches itself from above and descends with evil certainty to the ground below.

2265. Tomb Raider Chronicles - EIDOS PLC STILL LOCKED IN TALKS
British computer games maker Eidos Plc said it was still in talks that might lead to an offer for the company. French video games software maker Infogrames Entertainment said at the end of July that the British creator of cyber-heroine Lara Croft was in its sights but that the two parties were still far from final-stage negotiations. Eidos shares rose four percent on Tuesday's news to 430 pence, valuing it at approaching half a billion pounds. It first said it was in early-stage talks on June 20 and declined on Tuesday to say if Infogrames was involved. Other potential French suitors have circulated on the rumour mill.
