Se vieni a Roma e ti piace la street art, fuori dai classici itinerari turistici c’è il Quadraro, quartiere storicamente antifascista e che subì un feroce rastrellamento da parte dei nazisti; in prossimità della via Tuscolana servito da vari autobus e linea A della metro parta furba - quadraro (quando i mezzi pubblici funzionano). Qui e qui un piccolo assaggio di quello che potresti ammirare. Se ci arrivi in metro, quando torni verso termini, se scendi alla fermata prima arco di travertino, una visita al parco delle Tombe di via Latina la dovresti fare, per visitare le tombe ti devi prenotare

Lara Croft To Be Entered Into Golden Joystick Hall of Fame

Lara Croft, one of the most iconic and recognizable characters in gaming and film, is to be bestowed the honor of being entered into the Golden Joystick Awards Hall Of Fame.

An honor reserved only for the true behemoths in the world of gaming, the Golden Joystick Hall of Fame is only open to those games and characters that have changed the face of gaming and become an absolute global phenomena. It is hard to argue that there is any one character who has done this more than Lara Croft.

2016 is the 20th anniversary of Tomb Raider, the game that catapulted Lara Croft to the iconic figure that she is today. One of the most revered gaming series ever, it has sold over 46 million copies and the brand has seen multiple spin offs including animation series, comics, worldwide blockbuster films (played by A list actors such as Angelina Jolie) and even two albums.

Since her first appearance in 1996 in the original Tomb Raider from Core Design, Lara Croft has revolutionized the way the gaming community perceives lead characters in video games. Lara is an intrepid, empowered adventurer who must rely on her skills and intelligence not only to unravel ancient mysteries but also to survive in the most treacherous environments.

On October 11, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics released the latest game in the critically acclaimed franchise, Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration. The most comprehensive version of the award-winning experience, includes Rise of the Tomb Raider, along with a host of completely new content such as the new story chapter “Blood Ties,” “Lara’s Nightmare” zombie combat mode, PlayStation VR support for “Blood Ties,” co-op Endurance gameplay, an “Extreme Survivor” difficulty, five classic Lara skins, and an outfit and weapon inspired by TR III. It also includes all of the previously released downloadable content such as the critically acclaimed “Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch,” “Cold Darkness Awakened,” 12 outfits, seven weapons, multiple Expedition Card packs, and more.

Dan Dawkins, Global Editor in Chief of GamesRadar+ says, “Lara Croft is one of gaming’s most iconic characters, the figurehead of PlayStation’s explosion into mainstream culture in the mid 90s and truly deserving of a place in the Hall of Fame

“The past 20 years has seen Lara become a household name and one of the most inspiring and influential female characters ever. Most impressively, the character has evolved over the decades, with Lara’s recent, more realistic, reboot more closely aligned with modern gamer’s attitudes; allied to a game-design that continues to be best in class. We would like to congratulate all of the teams behind Lara over the past 20 years for their achievements.”

A full list of categories and nominations are listed on the website. Rise of the Tomb Raider is nominated in four categories open to public vote, including Game of the Year, Best Visual Design, and Best Story Telling. Learn more and vote at

Pratchett’s dream, though, is to take Lara to the sort of moral grey area that’s typically reserved for a certain type of protagonist (read: male). She doubts Crystal Dynamics would be interested in going there.

“Lara off the rails, more of an antihero, and play with that more,” she says. “Lara as more of an outlaw, walking some dubious moral compass.” She points to Red Dead Redemption 2 and the lack of female characters in the trailer, and she wants to see women get a chance to play the bad guys. Pratchett wants more “female outlaws and female soldiers.”


Does this woman ever make up her mind about what she wants Lara to be? If women want to play a morally grey "outlaw” character they can literally play any of the Tomb Raider games that she hasn’t worked on.

Karel’s Original Look

Murti Schofield, the writer of the Angel of Darkness, send us his sketches of Karel. 

The Ashes of Angels image (below) is not my own but was one of the sources I took to consider how Karel might think of himself as he plans how he will finally declare himself to be The Golden Lion of Nephilim prophesy And of course in his mind he declares himself in Cappaddocia, where it all began millennia ago. Here he imagines himself in his undisguised glory.  - Murti Schofield

Thank you to everyone who liked and commented and shared my TR3 painting.  It’s my favourite game and the epitome of everything I love about the series and I really poured everything I had in to it. I have the neck and back pains to prove it! I’ve never spent so long on a single drawing or worked so hard to make sure everything was just right and all of the feedback has been tremendous and so motivating and affirming. Again, thank you so much. Only five more covers to go before I have a full set - unless Crystal release a new TR before I get there…

Anyway, thank you! And happy 20th Anniversary to all of my fellow TR brethren and sistren. Here’s to many, many more! 

I don’t know if people showed this already but if not here you go. This is my recorded video from PS4 when I was playing the game and I see a lot of people in here who played Rise of the Tomb Raider were or still saying that developers never mentioned Sam in the game like she never existed, but after when you get captured by Trinity in the Gulag, you can go to your map and switch to Documents and you will see new section saying “Sessions” which shows how Ana was spying on Lara when she was going to therapist. And as you can see there IS a mention about Sam and what happened to her. But the problem is, to really know and understand where is Sam, you need to read the comics and and I know not everyone is really feels like to buy comics, and honestly I don’t want to spend money too lol, but I was just by accident looking at the Document section and seeing these was like “OMG THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT SAM!!!!”

So if you want to read the comics and really want to know what happened to Sam, I found a website where you can read the comics for free

If you want to know how to read so it would be easy for you to know what goes between what events of before or after games, on tomb raider wiki it perfectly explains how to read the comics.

I hope it helps a lot because i’m just tired of people talking about how devs of ROTTR made Sam look like she doesn’t exist in the second game lol. And Happy 20th Anniversary!!! sorry if my grammar sucks, English isn’t my native language, hope you understand.
