40 of the Most Ridiculous Examples of Video Game Logic

Creating a living, breathing world in a video game is an arduous task. In such a painstaking, difficult process, there are always bound to be a few details that, whether unintentionally missed or intentionally ignored for the sake of time, are bound to slip through the cracks of the final cut. Some are never noticed, but the ones that are have a great chance of being hilarious.

UPDATE: Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has confirmed that this is a timed exclusive for Xbox, and that the game will come out for other platforms, but he doesn't know when: "Yes, the deal has a duration. I didn't buy it. I don't own the franchise." -Eurogamer


Xbox re-released the Rise of the Tomb Raider announcement trailer we saw at E3, only with a minor change: the end of the video states the game will be an Xbox exclusive for Holiday 2015.

The game's official tumblr posted this update:

Dear Tomb Raider Community,

As you may have seen, we've just announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider, coming Holiday 2015, is exclusively on Xbox. We consider all of you to be the lifeblood of Tomb Raider and the work we do at Crystal. I'd like to give you some insight into this decision, and why we feel this is the very best thing for the Tomb Raider sequel we're creating at the studio.

Tomb Raider in 2013 was a success due in large part to your continued support. Our goal has always been to deliver something truly special with Rise of the Tomb Raider. Today's announcement with Microsoft is one step to help us put Tomb Raider on top of action adventure gaming. Our friends at Microsoft have always seen huge potential in Tomb Raider and have believed in our vision since our first unveil with them on their stage at E3 2011. We know they will get behind this game more than any support we have had from them in the past - we believe this will be a step to really forging the Tomb Raider brand as one of the biggest in gaming, with the help, belief and backing of a major partner like Microsoft.

This doesn't mean that we're walking away from our fans who only play on PlayStation or on PC. Those are great systems, with great partners, and amazing communities. We have Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris coming to those platforms this December, and Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition is available on PS4.

We know that there are probably many more questions and concerns. Please do send them to us, and we'll answer to the best of our ability. Meanwhile we're going all out to try and make something truly special - the most ambitious Tomb Raider game ever built.

Thanks,

Darrell Gallagher
Crystal Dynamics Head of Studios
It's unclear how long this exclusivity will last, but it seems like Microsoft needed a game to compete with Uncharted 4.

This fan-made trailer imagines a new movie based on 2015's Rise of the Tomb Raider, but the idea may not be terribly far-fetched. Daisy Ridley is rumored to be up for the role of Lara in a reboot, and she's confirmed there have been real talks about it.

"I’m waiting for someone to say ‘I want you, let’s do it,'" says Ridley. There's no script for the film yet, but John Boyega, her Star Wars co-star and pretty notorious video game nerd, has been egging Ridley on to go for the role: "I played Tomb Raider the game, it’s a new take and I think the movies are going to be based on that version, but I texted Daisy [and] was like, ‘this is you!’ and ‘you need to get on that because you could be Lara Croft.’ She should be." She absolutely could be; she's got the accent, and she's already proven to be a total badass as Rey.
