One Year of Gaming and Back to Raiding

Last year, around March, I started what would become the first playthrough of what I now call LawfulGeek Plays. It was Tomb Raider: Underworld and it was the first game in a plan to play through the entire classic series—starring the original Lara Croft that is—in reverse order, starting with Underworld and ending with the original 1996 Tomb Raider.

Let’s Play Classic Tomb Raider – Halfway There!

A couple of months ago I started a series called Classic Play Tomb Raider, later renamed Let’s Play Classic Tomb Raider, because it makes it easier to understand. The plan was simple: play through all the Classic Lara Croft games in reverse order—because I was already playing Underworld when the idea popped in my head! I want to give a special thanks to Kelly M. from The Archaeology of Tomb Raider for pointing out a flaw in my naming: the LAU Trilogy isn’t considered Classic Tomb Raider. It’s why now I say Classic Lara Croft when I explain the series! Continue reading Let’s Play Classic Tomb Raider – Halfway There!

Let’s Play Classic Tomb Raider: Chronicles

I know, it’s been a while, but since launching my weekly stream, it’s been difficult to also record these videos. But I’m finally back and now let’s start with Tomb Raider Chronicles, the next to last game Core Design ever made and one of the greatest cash-grab titles to grace the world with its presence. It’s set right after The Last Revelation. Lara’s presumed dead and her friends and family (only 3 of them apparently) gather around the fire with a lot of alcohol and reminisce about some of her earlier adventures.

This is an older game, as such it’s complicated to play it on modern PCs, and often it’ll crash. You’ll see in the first episode, just how many problems I have playing it. Some of it is the lack of autosave which I once again forget about.

Also, this game makes very little sense. Continue reading Let’s Play Classic Tomb Raider: Chronicles

Classic Play – Tomb Raider: Underworld – Complete

Two weeks ago I decided I would play through all the Classic Lara Croft games, starting from the last one Underworld–which I’ve been recently told isn’t considered a Classic TR, nor are any of the other two LAU Trilogy titles–and I posted the first of my playthrough videos. I hoped you enjoyed watching me die repeatedly.

For your further enjoyment, below you’ll find the complete playthrough. I finished the game and even played it again to record the first segment–it’s why I don’t suck as much on the first couple of locations. I’d already gone through there. But I still die a few times so don’t you worry.

Also, to the THREE evil, evil, heartless people who vote on the poll…I will have my revenge on you someday! But in the meantime I will play through the appalling Tomb Raider Chronicles and the atrocious Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness.

But I still have time before I need to play those. Next week I’ll be going through Anniversary and then Legend. It’ll be awesome to compare Anniversary and the original Tomb Raider when I finally get there! I might even stream some of the gameplay soon, so keep an eye out and make sure to follow my twitch channel!
