It was a grand time. Ledgends was displayed on several XBox 360 and looked very impressive. They let us play through the first level (Bolivia) and I'm sure Tomb Raider fans will not be disappointed.

:D

Adebibe's looking good isn't she? She received a little criticism at first, but we all have to remember that those first few photographs would have taken shortly after she got the part, before she really got a chance to "become" Lara, you know, with the training and all that. I knew she'd be looking great in no time!

Now she's really looking Lara-like!

Where can we see all of theese stars?

The Stars are part of the Walk of Game (http://walkofgame.com) which is loacted in the Metreon (http://metreon.com) in downtown San Francisco, California.

http://www.garylarochelle.com/images/metreon.jpg

It's kind of a mall for "techies". Also has a bunch of movie theaters (including I-MAX).

Like the Oscars, the Walk of Game people passed out a goodie bag at the induction ceremony.
http://www.garylarochelle.com/images/goodies.jpg

1. The Bag
2. Program
3. Jelly Belly jelly beans
4. T-Shirt
5. Access Pass
6. Free Game play cards (there's a video game arcade at the Metreon)
7. 3D Bookmark
8. Squishy Thing
9. Bottle Opener
10. Pencils (who still uses pencils?)
11. Magnet
12. Talking Pedometer (pedometer, Walk of Game, get it?)
13. Tomb Raider Ledgends Pass (not part of the Goodie bag, just thought I throw it in)

Im sorry to be so correcting... it wasnt displayed on the Xbox 360. It was only displayed on the regular xbox console. But I can see how you would get confused, it looks a little too good to be regular xbox, huh! You can see the pours in laras skin and everything. And thats just REGULAR xbox! Imagine what the 360 looks like!

I was talking to the developers and they were kinda sad because they wanted to see/show us the 360. But I didnt seem to mind. Hell, I was playing the TOMB RAIDER game! and it looked great!

I'm sorry to post just like this 'cause for some reason, I can't make a new thread:( !! It won't let me for some reason and it's my first one today. Well here's what I was suppose to share (and please do, anyone create a new thread from this quote 'cause I can't:( ):

Gamespot @ The Walk Of The Game!!!

HAHA! Looks like Gamespot went to the Walk Of The Game and visited Lara and Toby!!

If you scroll down at the bottom of the page beside where the thired video is (Lara and Toby's interview video!!), you can read from there if you're main interest is our TR LEGEND!!:D

OOOPs....:o Silly me. I usually play games on the PC. And maybe the PS2. You could beat me over the head with any of the XBoxes and I wouldn't know the difference between them.

Karima's so beautiful:D I don't mean to say her other photosessions were bad or anything but I think she should re-take them again 'cause Lara Croft has certainly built in her throughout these months:D

Can you tell the difference between the Tomb Raider Fans and the Tomb Raider Development team?

LOL I know what you mean. Im more of a playstation person myself. The only reason I knew this one is cause I asked someone what platform it was.

What a cool group photo, did you take that one yourself, maniac? I was soo happy that night, I was about to explode. I felt like a little kid in a candy store.

I couldnt agree more, JoShorty. Karima looks a lot better now than when they first unveiled her. Little details they improved about her such as the makeup and hair. Maybe she read our thread about her and made some improvements? :p ;) ;)

Trinity34
18th Mar 2006, 13:40
So she reads the forum?

Hi Karima!! Looks like you are having loads of fun being Lara. :)

Yes, there isn't much to Raid in California.

Hey all, I'm new ^_^ I'm the girl in the white top in that group photo :o *waves to melviso*

I've also been known as Anneke Whiley, I'm a veteral lookalike just like Jenn :) I've been meaning to come here for a while, but was always intimidated by the size of this place! Jenn convinced me to join, so here I am.
