faux par on the 1up.com web site informs readers
that Tomb Raider II was released on 1 January,
1900, the same year Montreal Shamrocks won the
Stanley Cup, Carrie Chapman Catt succeeded Susan

on the Sony Playstation in 1066, a few weeks before
Duke William of Normandy defeated King Harold

referred to as the Battle Of Hastings.
