So not only did I finish Shadow of the Tomb Raider for the first time tonight, but Camilla Luddington also retweeted my tweet in response to completing it! 😮
Seriously, THE Lara Croft responded to me. That's crazy.
The game itself was a great finale to what may be one of my favourite trilogies. I'm definitely going to be replaying this one again, and hopefully earning myself the Platinum along the way!
It felt a little shorter than the previous entry, but it is pretty much just as emotionally engaging as the rest in this "Survivor" timeline. Also, Earl Baylon (@Earlybgoode) gives a brilliant performance as Jonah! He's such an underrated character, in my opinion; playing the perfect counterweight to Lara's dark journey.
Obviously no spoilers, but the last twenty minutes or so had me hooked beyond belief! That, as well as a few other strong moments, really remind me of why Lara is my favourite video game character.
I'd love to see Camilla return to Lara Croft at some point if she wishes, but if not, I can safely say I'm very pleased with the trio of games this Lara has given us.
Also, I couldn't help but share some of my favourite pictures I've taking in-game. As with Spider-Man, I got a little too obsessive with the Photo Mode...
O CROFT PT tem mais uma mensagem exclusiva para os fãs, desta vez do @earlybgoode (a.k.a. Jonah Maiava), onde o mesmo conta uma história sobre a produção das cenas cinemáticas do Shadow of the Tomb Raider! 😁 Confira a mensagem na nossa página do Facebook! ⤵️ Facebook.com/CROFTPT
The magic behind the making of Shadow of the Tomb Raider. This moment gives me goose bumps and a shiver down my spine when I saw it when I was watching the video of Shadow of the Tomb Raider Panel at the E3 Coliseum. I needed to post the part here because it's just so powerful! @earlybgoode and @camillaluddington really bring out true emotions, body language and just that real connection and that friendship in Jonah and Lara when doing their stuff in the volume. I can't wait to get the game, it will be one of the best games I hope to play by the end of the year😍💕
