Most Olympic events consist of activities that are traditionally derived from hunting and combat skills. Over time these practice’s have evolved into a variety of competitive sports that include, Archery, Pistol Shooting and Free Rifle.
As with real life shooting events you have full control over the aim of the weapon. You must also take into account the prevailing weather conditions and the athlete’s breathing pattern as these can both influence the accuracy of the shot.
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, platforms unspecified
Posted on 10 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 2 Comments
Today, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix announced Lara Croft and the Guardian of Life. The press release, however, did not state which platforms the game is in development for. The only detail shared is that it “will be released via digital download in 2010.” As we know, Nintendo has their own downloadable services in WiiWare and DSiWare. I don’t really expect the game to land on DSiWare, but WiiWare seems like a more realistic possibility. Information about the title will be revealed soon, but we’ll have to see if Lara Croft and the Guardian of Life ends up on the Wii or DS.
