The good news is...he actually liked Tomb Raider: Legend demo. If you needed proof it's not just for fanboys, there you go.
What can I offer to stem the TR post tide until after you've played the full version? At least try the level editor from TR:Chronicles in the meanwhile as a change of pace.
Though I enjoyed the hex edit of TR's .dat, the kid-at-Xmas approach has got to go. The anticipation isn't killing me, I'm afraid. ;^) Don't make me WoW again.
I was hoping to go back to my Civ posts, speaking of dead horses, and talk about how Civ IV seems to have placed itself pretty firmly as a potentially educational game (as I've been ranting for years [about earlier versions]). Not only did Civ IV win whatever educational (?) award a while back, it's mentioned in the most recent issue of TIME as one big reason cyberkids aren't necessarily dumber.
Still, I promise to hold WoW and Civ posts under the number of those on TR. For now. And I do wish someone (generic not royal someone) would give the TR:C editor and/or fan levels a shot!

Since I've nothing else to do, except poke around the Windows demo for comparison, you don't have to do much. On the other hand, writing the posts instead of writing comments about posts you'd like to make would be a start. ;^)

When I have a Mac that doesn't keel over after a week's use, I'll look into it. ;^)
