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 9 years ago by 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.

Edit: I know a lot of you are going to try and pick up the demo as soon as you can, but I think it’s only fair to warn you that most (probably all) Gamestop locations are requiring you to pre-order the game in order to receive a demo. At my location, they assured me that if I didn’t like the demo, I could get a full refund, but I’m not sure if that applies everywhere.
As many of you already may know, demos of Monster Hunter Tri have been distributed to many Gamestop/EB Games a few days early, with many locations already having them in stock. When I heard this, I called up my local Gamestop and asked if they had received their copies. Much to my delight, they did, and I immediately headed out to give it a shot.
When I popped my copy into my Wii and got comfortable up on the couch, I got a little excited. I had never played a Monster Hunter game before, and I had heard a lot of great things about them from fans of the series. Unfortunately, my excitement waned a little bit when I looked at the instructional poster that came with the demo. There were 8 classes represented on the sheet, and each one had a very different style of control. Now, maybe I’m a minority here, but I prefer my games to be kept pretty simple and straight to the point. I’m not a big fan of having to learn long strings of combos or complex controls just to be able to play my game’s tutorial. Regardless, I shoved aside my preconceptions about how much I’d enjoy it and let the title screen roll.
