The Brews: E3 2012 New Tomb Raider Trailer

An exclusive trailer for the new Tomb Raider game hit the interwebz a few days ago. While the idea of a prequel story sounds pretty cool, I’m not sure how I feel about Lara Croft sounding as whiny as she does in this trailer.  Isn’t she supposed to be a badass?

  1. I think the idea is that this is the story of how she learned to become a badass. I agree that she seems a touch too whiny at times, but overall this trailer really got me excited for this re-imagining. I like the grittiness of it and I love the idea of a female protagonist who’s both strong *and* vulnerable.

    • Thanks for your comment! It definitely could be nice to see something as fresh as a strong female protagonist with a vulnerable side. If it’s executed in the same vein as something like Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Kitty Pryde in the X-Men comics, I think I can dig it.
