Square Enix Announces Rise of the Tomb Raider for Steam, Windows 10, and PlayStation 4

Square Enix today announced its latest title in the critically acclaimed and award-winning Tomb Raider series, Rise of the Tomb Raider, will be available for Steam and Windows 10 PC in early 2016. The game will be a console exclusive to Xbox One and Xbox 360 for one year after its initial launch, coming to PlayStation 4 Holiday 2016. Renowned developer Crystal Dynamics, a Square Enix studio, is leading development in the latest entry in the iconic series for additional platforms.

In the critically acclaimed Tomb Raider, Lara Croft survived a harrowing experience only to be discredited as part of a cover up. Now, after uncovering an ancient mystery, Lara must explore the most treacherous and remote regions of Siberia to find the secret of immortality before a ruthless organization known as Trinity. Lara must use her wits and survival skills, form new alliances, and ultimately embrace her destiny as the Tomb Raider.  

Experience high-octane action moments, conquer beautifully hostile environments, engage in brutal guerilla combat, and explore awe-inspiring deadly tombs in the evolution of survival action. In Rise of the Tomb Raider, Lara becomes more than a survivor as she embarks on her first great Tomb Raiding expedition.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is premiering on Xbox One and Xbox 360 first on November 10, 2015.

My love for Superman & Wonder Woman takes its toll on my pockets but not sorry. :D I don’t live in the US so chasing down some comics (like variants) and merchandise can be expensive. Shipping costs are killer. It pains me more though when I can’t get at some stuff.  DC, you got to make more Superman/Wonder Woman merchandise so people who live outside of the US can go into a store and buy some stuff!!! 

This is just some of my stuff (been buying since 2002)  and I hope to add more!

It can be really intimidating to jump into a new hobby or creative pursuit sometimes. It can also just be scary if you feel like your well is completely dry, even for those things you once thrived off while doing. Fortunately, there are so many solid books out there that talk about the creative process, about how to make and create from the world right inside your home, and how to push yourself to try new, different, and ultimately, useful things that stretch your talents outside your comfort zone.

Grand Challenge

Sweat beaded on the duelist’s forehead as she focused her mind inward, recalling the fight as if it had only happened yesterday. The clanging of the blades sounded as furiously as the rattles of a mighty metal tornado. She remembered the tongue lashing he had given her throughout the fight, berating her lack of discipline and shouting at her to listen to reason. She would have none of it, though, this rage was justified. This man, her father, had betrayed her honor, the very honor of House Laurent! She could not suffer this man to run her proud name into the ground.

Fiora had replayed the memory in her head a thousand times in the past few weeks, part of her training in the arcane with Lux. Through her guidance, Fiora had been able to coax out a sliver of magical power, but it was distant, far too deep within the duelist to use practically. Lux had told her to focus on something that could draw out her inner strength to help her summon it, a memory or a strongly held belief. A simple exercise, to be sure, but Fiora had trained with every free hour she had, and only a day ago had started to see any results. It was barely enough for a single spell, she knew, but that was a spell more than she’d been able to cast previously.

She looked outwardly now, dismissing her memory but not banishing it fully. A nobleman was standing opposite her, blade in hand, and many nicks and cuts about him, even the meager shade of attention she had dedicated to him during her recollection had been enough to nearly defeat the man. With a snarl, he charged forward with his sword, a desperate lunge for her chest. Her spirit was ablaze, the final moments of the duel with her father flashed in her mind as the nobleman charged at her. She leaped forward, meeting his charge with her own. Her blade stuck itself inside her father’s shirt. Fiora’s pride exploded. 

GRAND CHALLENGE

The words screamed inside her, loud enough that Fiora felt is if it might crack her skull. She darted to the left, easily avoiding the nobleman’s sloppy lunge, and slashed him hard, once, twice, thrice, and again. As soon as her blade cut that last time, a mighty roar escaped her, and an explosion of light followed it out, blinding the crowd as it shone from the duelist. The ring of spectators around the two fell silent as the light flew out and extended past them. They felt a strange serenity grow within them, as if the minor stresses and woes they had known that day were nothing. The nobleman that had been her challenger tensed as the magic fell upon him, but as Fiora lowered her stance and saluted the man, signifying the end of the duel, he too felt the light soothe him. To his surprise, his many cuts began to knit together. Before too long, he felt as healthy as he had before the duel had begun, better even. As the light finally faded, Fiora saw the man return her salute, dipped a bow in deference, and stroll away with a renewed spring in his step. If the weight of his loss was heavy on his shoulders, he wasn’t betraying it.

latest dream

Ok I guess this is the dream that helped me pick my new ultimate.

In a previous post I think I mentioned that I had a dream about joining JYP and becoming a trainee. Well it’s a kind of continuation of that.

Apparently it was made into a reality show, mine and other trainees paths to debut, so in out dorm there were cameras that went live to a website I guess?

I think the dorms are mixed in with already debuted groups because Jackson walks into my room a night or two after coming back from spending time with his family, and he tells me he had a bad dream and asks to stay with me.

I’m super asleep, well my body is. My mind is totally awake but I can’t get my body to do what I tell it to.

So I say “What about the show? It would give the wrong idea.” But it comes out more like “Wh–mmbout- shoo…..badea…”

And Jackson is all like, “We can put your giant bunny plush between us.” This sounds like a totally logical solution to prevent scandal at the time, so I agree and we fall asleep holding hands with the bunny between us (which i do have in real life that is about ½ my size).

Of course because it’s streaming or some shit, there are articles announcing super scandalous activity by morning. (stupid media)

Ok so after all the articles come out, we’re getting scolded by JYP and we’re both like “It was recorded you can see nothing happened.” And I just tack on “Our relationship isn’t like that.”

So an awkward-ish silence falls over the 3 of us and JYP gets this look on his face while looking at Jackson. That makes me look at Jackson and I can see he has this really hurt look on his face and of course I’m like “Oh no” and this is in the dorm so this is being filmed too. (whhhyyyyyy)

And I continue on like “Oh, Jackson…I …” but he just shrugs me off and he shouts, “When are you going to see me as a man?!” and stormed out.

JYP goes into papa mode and follows Jackson out so I’m left in some room standing there thinking, “I fucked up. I so fucked up.”

So Im standing there trying not to cry on film or whatever thinking I just fucked up the best and possibly only friendship I have currently in dreamland – And this kind of starts a mini fanwar.

Like Jacksons fans are saying I deserve to be upset because I didn’t see his feelings and the few predebut fans I have are confused as fuck, and fans who barely pay attention to the show except for gossip understand that it might have been a cultural misunderstanding on how friendships/relationships are handled.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

But that’s where the dream ends and I woke up feeling like my heart was gonna explode.

And honestly I dont know if this new ultimate is because I woke up feeling like I needed to take care of Jackson because the dream didnt finish or if its because I have finally taken notice of how talented he is.
