Test of Time: Tomb Raider

Can Lara Croft stand the Test of Time?

 

 

 

Here is the first episode of an ambitious new video podcast, where two thirty-somethings revisit games from their youth to find out if they can stand the Test of Time. Join Jonathan and Francis as they navigate long-forgotten tombs with cul-de-sacs filled with wolves and dinosaurs. Marvel at the bacon-wrapped floors of Atlantis. Listen to Francis’ epic adolescent quest to find the mythical Lara nude code. Hear Jonathan’s despair at being crushed by troll boulders (trollbers). Will the lovely Lara Croft’s first outing stand the Test of Time after two decades or will she plummet screaming into a pit of spikes? Watch and find out!

Jonathan is HeyPoorPlayer's token British person, so expect him to thoroughly exploit this by quoting Monty Python and saying things like "Pip, pip, toodly-whotsit!" for the delight of American readers. He likes artsy-fartsy games, RPGs and RPG-Hybrids (which means pretty much everything at this point). He used to write for Sumonix.com. He's also just realised how much fun it is to refer to himself in the third person like he's The Rock or something.
