I can't tell you how many hours I tried to get a screenshot of this kind of pose in the first game.


...and this one ...


... and this one.


Yumm.


I think I know how she got the job (hint: look at the calouses on her knees)


There's something wrong with the pistols; it's like she's cock-eyed. (enjoy the pun)



icon_eek No, ma'am, I _wasn't_ staring at your ass... could you, uhm, put the guns down now??"

Hot! And good grief, a 'wardrobe malfunction' could have happened in some of those shots and made them X-rated.  eek

What exactly does:

Quote
Former gymnast Alison Carroll, 23, is presented as the new face of computer game character Lara Croft at Pineapple Studios on August 11, 2008 in London, England. The new Tomb Raider game 'Underworld' comes out on November 21, 2008. Check out the photos!

mean?  That she's the new shill, or motion capture model for Underworld?  I mean, are we just talking booth babe or what?

they've always had a model to portray Lara Croft in promotional materials...gaming shows/conventions, print ads, commercials, or whatever else.  there have been quite a few over the years...some better than others.  they even did a 10th anniversary photo shoot a little back...

You know what might seem relevant to the world now? Someone not Lara Croft, who peaked years ago and has shown zero growth except in the area of pixelized boobage. The new chick is pretty dang cute, though Rhona Mitra remains the all time champ IMO. smile

You're dead on. No one touches Rhona Mitra. She's one of the hottest women I've ever seen.

She is hot as all hell, but doesn't look a bit like Lara Croft.  IMHO, of course.

I kinda like this new model from that video.  She's an actual gymnast and can actually pull off a good deal of the moves Lara might do in the game (well, to a more realistic level).  She seems smart enough, has a great accent, and is already accomplished in other areas besides modeling.

Eh, intelligent women turn me on and it looks like she's a keeper.
