    Are the NES games there now?

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    There's a satisfying but guilty pleasure to be had mowing down natives with an automatic rifle, it feels so wrong.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    The game really comes into its own when you reach a certain hub area There's just so much to explore and uncover, side quests which unlock buyable upgrades which actually give you access to to locations previously inaccessible, crypts etc. There's a lot hidden away and quite a bit which makes sense of the story too. It's a much, much more ambitious game than the last two. Also love how powerful I now feel as Lara taking out swathes of enemies any way that I choose

    I watched the beginning but don't reckon I'll watch it all, fucking flares on Peter Moore, looks like a suit from 1975 rather than 2005.

    I'm at work until 10pm and I just wanna get back and chill with this game, bloody work.

    CD keys was also cheaper than retail that's why I went digital. Anyway I'm loving it, it feels like a proper old school adventure. The crypts, side quests and challenge tombs are fantastic and feel very, very Tomb Raider but with a modern sheen.

    They're not as regular as they once were, especially more linear ones like Uncharted, Tomb Raider and God of War.

    Spider-man was always bound to sell more as with all things Marvel or Super Hero related these days, plus it's an exclusive of the world's best selling console. I think it's great that games like Tomb Raider are still being made tbh, one player focussed action adventure games are pretty rare, particularly big budget ones.

    I dont think Shadow is bloated, you can follow the main story if you prefer or explore everywhere and do sidequests much like Lost Legacy which also has that hub area/exploration bit which you can do as much or as little as you choose. It's a pretty sombre experience at times, but I really enjoy the Temple of Doom vibes it's giving me and the slower pace of it all. What I've played so far is totally at odds with how the Guardian review describes it as being more action focussed.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    It does open up once you hit certain hub areas and there are places you can't access you'll likely go back to etc. but it is a linear action adventure game. It's much more exploration and puzzle based compared to the last two games. My advice to anyone finding it too easy is to turn all the hints off and the combat difficulty up.

    I saw that but at an hour and twenty mins I'll have to put some time aside, worth the watch?

    Exactly, the service is arriving a year after it was supposed to and we still know next to nothing about their plans.

    Nintendo Switch

    The price is fine but holding back on virtual console and replacing it with a smattering of NES games is disappointing. I'm just not a fan of this drip feed approach. By now virtual console should be fully formed with a large catalogue to choose from, either paid for individually or by subscription, and it should have been there day one. Again, like it was on Wii over ten years ago. I'm a big fan of Switch but the online stuff and back cat stuff is a bit of a mess.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    I don't know what Tomb Raider looks like on a regular PS4, but on Xbox One X at least the effects, texrures, scale, lighting, density of foliage etc. is on another level to Uncharted 4 imo. Like I said originally though I've not played Uncharted on a Pro which I'm sure ups the quality significantly. Apart from that though there's way more going on in Tomb Raider just from a game stand point in terms of exploration, puzzles, side quests etc. but that's also been the case.
