  1. Hello Chella and Drew. I love the new longer format. Great show. Actually one thing I wanted to add was that there were plenty of pretenders to Lara’s crown back in the day. It was almost becoming a Tomb Raider knock off competition along with Command and Conquer copies. Then they all died off and only left Lara standing. Uncharted came well after all that by a decade, but it came at a time when the owners of Tomb Raider had let the franchise slide into near oblivion. Plus being a PS3 exclusive helped to give it an inborn audience. Now Lara is back, but too late to stop Uncharted. I wonder if that is why the new Tomb Raider was an Xbox One exclusive, to make up for Uncharted being a PlayStation only series?

    1. Hi Miles. Thanks for the feedback. We are going to go a bit longer on future episodes, but not this long, unless it’s a meaty topic that we want to go to town on.
      I suspect you’re right regarding Tomb Raider and Xbox One.
      Thanks for listening.
