Game Description: Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. This all-new adventure takes place in the Temple of Osiris, hidden deep in the deserts of Egypt. Lara Croft arrives at the temple, hoping to be the first inside, but rival treasure hunter Carter Bell has beaten her to the entrance. They each seek the Staff of Osiris, but they discover more than they bargained for. Upon entering the tomb, Carter removes the mythical Staff from its resting place and inadvertently triggers a trap cursing them both and unleashing the evil god Set. But the staff also awakens the gods Horus and Isis, the son and wife of Osiris. Now free from their ancient prison, they join forces with Lara and Carter in order to resurrect Osiris, the only god capable of removing the curse. As Lara and her companions fight their way across the sands and through ancient tombs, they will face gods and monsters of myth and legend. With the fate of the world at stake, Lara must uncover the fragments of Osiris to stop Set from enslaving all mankind.

RIP Ralph Baer

Video game legend Ralph Baer passed away this weekend. If you don’t know who he is, I recommend watching this short video by PBS. As you’ll soon learn, much of what we do in the video game industry is a direct result of many of his inventions.

I was fortunate to have spent a Sunday afternoon with him earlier this year at his home in New Hampshire, where he agreed to be a guest on my podcast and show me around his workshop. Here is a never before seen photo of Ralph and I in his lab, playing on the “brown box” – the prototype that would go on to become the Magnavox Odyssey.

It was a magical afternoon that I shall remember for the rest of my life.

Thank you for everything Ralph and rest in peace.
