So before Fallout week starts and I go into full fanboy mode I guess I should take the time to acknowledge that Rise of the Tomb Raider is also coming out on November 10th, you ballsy bastards.
I realise I am incredibly biased when it comes to comparing there two games, having only played the old Tomb Raider games and not the new reboot of the franchise however I must say that the excuse for putting the game out at this time is… weird. Essentially the development team told that they didn’t want to release it earlier than this in fear of having to compete with Halo and they didn’t want to release it later in fear of competing with Call of Duty and Star Wars Battlefront. You can understand the reasoning behind it however them risking their game competing with Fallout is possibly the most insane of the choices, personally I would have gone up against Star Wars as that is a multiplayer only game and Tomb Raider could provide the single player experience gamers could want. Then again I’m no games marketing director so maybe it is the best decision, who knows.
What do you all think of this issue? let me know in the comments section! That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
