Our mission to turn Shira Lazar into a gamer continues. sWooZie didn’t make a whole lot of progress getting her through “Fallout 4,” but with Meghan Camarena aka Strawburry17 and the latest “Tomb Raider” game, maybe Shira would have more luck.
“Rise of the Tomb Raider” is the sequel to 2013’s “Tomb Raider,” which was the second reboot to the popular “Tomb Raider” franchise featuring sexy adventurer Lara Croft.“The last game was kind of Lara’s origin story,” Meghan explained. “You got to see how she became the Tomb Raider. [“Rise of the Tomb Raider”] picks up where that one left off.”
The game takes Lara through beautifully-rendered, dangerous landscapes as she searches for an ancient city that contains the secret for immortality. Shira-as-Lara did surprisingly well climbing and jumping on an icy mountain, but skipping ahead to the desert and a cavern full of booby traps, she had a bit more trouble. Aiming and shooting is pretty difficult when death is bearing down on you.
All things considered, it’s a good thing Meghan was there to guide Shira through it.
