Lara Croft gets a breast reduction

Filed under
Gaming

Videogame idol Lara Croft has been given a smaller bust as part of a makeover gaming company Eidos hopes revives the once-hot tomb-raiding heroine.

"Tomb Raider" debuted in 1996 to rave reviews, spawning magazine covers and movies. However, the last version in the franchise, "Angel of Darkness," was criticized for being virtually unplayable.

London-based game maker Eidos said everything in "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend" is new -- including a fresh code-writing team who worked with original creator Toby Gard.

The new Lara Croft`s bust size also has been reduced.

"With Angel of Darkness, we strayed," Eidos Global Brand Manager Matt Gorman told the BBC. "We took Lara out of her context, out of the tombs."

Eidos showed off the new game recently in Los Angeles, but would not let anyone play it to see how well it works.

"Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend" is due for fall release in a number of formats.

3 open source alternatives to AutoCAD

The trick for deciding whether a replacement piece of software, whether open or closed, is a good choice for you is to tease out exactly what your needs are. The situation is no different than discovering that the person who insists that they "need" Photoshop is just using it to draw a few geometric shapes and remove red eye from photos; what they really need is a graphics editing tool that can replace those specific functions. Whether it has all of the bells and whistles of the original is irrelevant if those features sit paid for but unused. My personal journey through open source CAD programs was no different. I had worked with AutoCAD briefly in grad school, and so when I wanted to play with drawing three-dimensional plans for something, it was pretty much all I knew. But that alone didn't make AutoCAD the best choice. Read more
