    Exclamation Added official site

    previews for now, and reviews later, will be listed with the most recent one at the top of the list.

    added the official Tomb Raider Portal (which currently features TR Underworld).
    register there and read the blogs (Eric Lindstrom), listen to the podcasts, and get the latest TR news, etc.

    * not yet finished *
    --- will add more previews, soon, and links to other picture sites and magazines.
    --- will probably add a "Miscellaneous" header/section for ... miscellaneous stuff.

  3. #3
    Tomb Raider Inc. (Tomb Raider BE for Belgium) is another good source for TRU info, (especially about the pre-alpha stage demo), good wallpapers, and contests on deviantART.

    1up.com also has a week's worth of exclusives, which is plenty enough to set the ball rolling.

  4. #4

    Cool e.s.l., s'il vous plait

    ... added an international cafe (English Second Language) to the warehouse.

    The warehouse could really benefit by links to other international sites (i.e. german, indian, syrian, to name a few)
    and any overlooked preview articles or information/picture websites.

    suggestions welcome!
    Thanks

  5. #5
    www.laracroftonline.com is a pretty good site. All the usual stuff and a TR music player (which I listen to while raiding these forums.

    Well I'll quickly say, then, thanks for this. It's a great collection you've got

    I didn't know if we were allowed to comment or not. But I'll say a little line about the vid (no spoilers). You can easily get rid if we're not supposed to be gabbling on in here though Rabid...

    opinions are fine ... the warehouse holds information ... for anybody to use, so ...

    ohhh, and I have to register an opinion about the teaser trailer: OMG!
    the manor was incredible, and not only was Lara hot, she was completely steamed as well!!!
    to say that Lara's mood is AoD-ish would be wrong, but she is clearly not a happy camper.
    Why??? What caused the event in question to take place???
    I am so open to new Lara goodness, it hurts ...
    ... so for me, the teaser worked, in terms of heightening my sense of "i've got to play this game!"
    i'm psyched ... but it doesn't take much (due to my affliction) ...

    i've been keeping track of most of the links but i feel that i'm probably missing tons of stuff that is out there. that's why the first line in the original post reads:

    Yeah, I know! It's great! I was watching it, and I couldn't help but be amazed at how this video was executed. Great job guys!

    I was in such a weird state afterwards, I couldn't help watching over and over again, nit-picking things.

    I'm glad to see it had such a profound effect on you too.
    Saving is fun, kids! Save constantly.

    Cool ... before you play

    good call, Rachie.

    Stop by the warehouse often, as I'm likely to update the previews, silently.

    * Ahem *
    ... just added 3 more recent (Jul-17 and Jul-18 vintage) previews ...

    Read On!

    You should add fansites to that list as well, maybe. And maybe that video with the Tomb Raider history thing, with Keeley Hawes narrating.

    Ah, I can't find a link, but maybe you should post links to videos like that? On a proper website, not youtube preferably.

    I think you can't go on gametap TV anymore...they've removed it!

    So no more Tomb Raider Retrospective, or the cartoons!

    Well, not on the proper website anyway...

    Cool ... user manual

    ... in many cases, it is easier to add "links" if they are provided ...

    not sure yet how to handle Youtube, in general ... i'm thinking about it ...

    fansites are a wonderful idea, suggestions??? it could be its own section.
    the original intent was to gather and house "emerging" TRU news/information.

    finally, about viruses, ... there are no direct links to bad content!
    with your help, we can keep the warehouse a bug-free zone ...

    Well, there's our very own Tessa's site here.

    And there's Katie's site here, although you can get it off Stella's.

    I know no others.

    I could have done without her referring to the demonstrator as "Eidos Man." Really, you're a reporter. You can't cite a source for your information by name or treat them with more respect than that? No wonder no one's lining up to give you an exclusive.

    Good to hear the game looks fantastic and that Lara moves well. The adrenaline moments are an improvement of QTEs, but then anything would be.

    And it's good to know that all the work CD put in on getting Lara's a$$ just right is getting the attention it deserves. I realize some of that will always accompany a TR game, but do they have to encourage and enable it?
