Here's an interesting comparison of all the Laura Crofts. Personally, I like the 07 remake, which also seems to be the only REAL attempt at having the promo art match the actual in game rendering. She doesn't look like the "sexy cartoon" of the original box art:

On the other front, I think the differences between the 1st and 2nd in-game models reveals a lot about art direction and how wrong it can go. To me the second one actually looks worse than the first in many respects, especially the face.

Certainly not linear progression though. It seems like they suffered a bit of a relapse in 2010.

Personally I like the new Lara Croft clothing/modeling, but I miss the older hair, holsters and sunglasses. Also the half finger gloves, because those were classic.

The SteamOS beta has picked up official BIOS and dual-boot support so you can try it out on a less-than-newest PC even if you have Windows installed, and invites for the streaming feature are going out.

I might buy a Steambox if it turns out to be a viable way to get a nice computer without having to pay the Windows tax.

Whether I'd actually ever run SteamOS on it remains to be seen and probably depends on how frequently I'd end up playing games and the balance of how cumbersome other desktop environments (GNOME, Xmonad, or whatever) are for that purpose vs the inconvenience of rebooting. My general tendency to try to compartmentalize my computing might also play a part - like how currently I generally have a 'work' OS installation, or at least user account, that I use only for work (in theory, anyway). SteamOS might work quite nicely for me towards that end.

I'm not going to be buying a computer/console specifically for gaming anytime in the foreseeable future.

I suspect the official Steamboxen will be trivially easy to install a different base OS to, and from there it probably won't be an issue to install the Steam Linux client for gaming purposes.

They have succubi of varying races, which is interesting. Still not a big fan of succubi with their whole idea of 'sexy women are evil' but considering it's just a game mechanic, I'll live with it.

I'm crying because druid is dead last.

Maybe they should implement Incubi to keep the game gender neutral.

I'm already going to buy it! I actually try not to read too much about games these days, if I already know I want them. It makes the wait more unbearable

(DAMNIT DARK SOULS 2 COME OUT ALREADY wait no your current release date is right after the American Physics Society March meeting ends. .. And I need to still get data for that. NEVERMIND CARRY ON THEN)

Ahahaha... that's awesome. But seriously, that tumblr and I are just friends. Depending on what your definition of the word "friends" is.

No one talks about my defeat of the Lovecraft clones anymore. I thought they'd forgotten.
