It’s time for another helping of Tomb Raider goodness courtesy of the Tomb Raider fan community! I’d like to thank everyone who gave me feedback on this new (weekly) feature and let me know what they’d like to see more of in future editions. :)
Before we move on to what my fellow fans and fansite owners have been up to over the past week, here are some recent articles of mine that you may have missed: an in-depth look at the griffin-head protome seen in TR: Anniversary, a list of my favourite Tomb Raider Easter eggs and my first impressions of the new mobile game, Lara Croft: Relic Run.
And now, let’s take a look at what others have been tweeting and creating!
Bobthepetferret Plays “Tomb Raider 2“
Take a walk down memory lane with Let’s Player Bobthepetferret’s Tomb Raider 2 playthrough. Watch as he uncovers every secret and shares some facts about the various places Lara visits.
A Case of Deja Vu Over at Being Lara Croft
The ever-funny, ever-witty “Lady Lara Croft” draws some parallels between a recent photoshoot picture of actress Camilla Luddington and a well-known promo pic starring our favourite leading lady. The claws are out…
A New Fan Fic by Pfangirl
She may have just completed her 48-chapter epic Easier to Run but Pfangirl is back with another fan fiction set in the reboot universe. Her latest story, Early Excavations, explores the relationship between a self-conscious teenaged Lara Croft and her mentor and guardian Conrad Roth as the latter tries to help the former come to terms with her ancestry and her parents’ mysterious disappearance.
If you missed it yest, here's a Lara-Roth one-shot, full of teenage girl-meets-grizzled military man awkwardness: fanfiction.net/s/11199757/1/E…—

Roli’s New Relic Run-Inspired Wallpaper
Lara Croft: Relic Run hasn’t been released in most of the world yet but that hasn’t stopped fans from creating their own Relic Run-inspired fan art. One example is this beautiful wallpaper by Roland Dankó (aka Roli29), which can be downloaded over on his DeviantArt page!

I was just called a 'motherless goat' in #FarCry4. I think that might be the best insult I have ever heard.—

On the internet someone asks a question & I answer then like 20 other people give the same answer & I just wanna say "you know; I got this."—

Still not sure on how I feel about RotTR, but Relic Run will definitely bring back my Temple Run addiction *lies faced down on the ground*—
