LARA CROFT AND THE MONA LISA

[ October 5th 2000 ]

"I dunno. One minute you're sat there being force fed double Vodkas by a delectable young lady dressed as a cowgirl, the next you're staggering around incoherently trying to remember what your name is. The Eidos press party, a civilised, friendly, multicultural affair during the day, descended into an orgy of hedonism and reckless abandon as the evening wore on, and frankly I feel violated. Fortunately there were some spiffing new games there that made up for the shameless antics of a few inebriated journos. Well me anyway."

Shortly before the celebrations began, Eidos Chairman Ian Livingston gave his guests a speech on how recently journalists have been "indulging rather to freely in the old build 'em up and knock 'em down routine." and continued to point out that Eidos Interactive is the only British company doing what they are doing on the markets.

The report on GamePlay focuses on the two new instalments of Tomb Raider, one of which, Chronicles, will be hitting the shelves just in time for the Christmas chart race. ACE, the journalist covering the press party, describes the demo on show as pleasantly surprising, after previously commenting that Eidos, while recognising their market success, had spent the last few years milking Tomb Raider, 2, 3 and 4. Tomb Raider Next Generation was also on the showcase agenda, described as similar to Metal Gear Solid on the Playstation.

According to the report, Lara Croft may well be trading in her archaeologists nose in preference of a new career as an art thief as FMV movies apparently showed Miss Croft taking on a security guard while protecting the Mona Lisa. Tomb Raider Next Generation is set for released Fall 2001, while Chronicles will be out Nov. 15th this year.
