I don’t know if I like the new Tomb Raider game, guys. It is gorgeous. There is no taking away from that; however, it babies the crap out of you through the tombs. My favorite part of the TR games are the actual exploration and puzzles in the tombs. I feel like the series went from raiding to Nathan Drake with a female protagonist. They spoon-feed you the puzzles (even on max difficulty), there is a HUGE emphasis on stealth (which, I DO like better than run and guns, because it feels like a puzzle), and there is a large chunk of an RPG-esque-like city randomly thrown in. It’s like they weren’t sure which direction to go in. I like exploring cities, but it feels muddled and clunky.
I just want to go back to the puzzle-heavy, exploration of the original few games…. or Prince of Persia. Remake Prince of Persia 😛

Factoid of the Week:
According to a study from the University of Hawaii, there are (approximately) seven quintrillion five quadrillion grains of sand on all the beaches in the world (that’s a 75 with 17 zeros behind it; i.e., 7,500,000,000,000,000,000). NOTE: if you think that’s a big number, consider that astronomers have postulated that there are 100 stars in the Universe for every grain of sand on the Earth’s beaches (that’s assuming our own Milky Way galaxy, with its hundreds of billions of stars, is ‘typical’, and that the Hubble space telescope is correct in its estimate that there are at least 80 billion galaxies in the world).
