We normally only show an upcoming game's cover if one of us takes a liking to it. So, yeah, I quite like Tomb Raider's box art!

Which doesn't surprise me, seeing as I'm a fan of the game's art direction in general ("Uncharted in bad weather"), but with a prominent female lead there was still the possibility Eidos' PR would ruin everything by sticking her tits out or having her in a trademark "bum facing the camera" pose. Good to see that hasn't happened.

What was wrong with Lara before? Seriously what is wrong with her being sexy AND smart? Why do ppl want to tone down her sexiness? If anything her being independent and good looking made me like her more as a character. She could hold more than her own against all the male antagonists in the game and she was incredibly athletic and held a vast knowledge of ancient civilizations. She was awesome! Why do we have to be all "PC" and say oooooh its bad to design her as good looking. I liked her ass, I liked her boobs, but I also liked that she was independent and smart. Now we gotta tone her down because it offends people? Gimme a break.
