no one deserves to lose their job. But I guess good ol' tomb raider has lost its luster. I don't think the reason it didn't sell better was because she isn't a D cup anymore. But when I was 15 at the time the first game came out, it defin. helped me out in the purchase decision.

Good luck to all the laid off workers at CD. The industry is tough right now.

she's already female-friendly! If she became anymore more female-friendly she be like one of those felmale male hating women you see on the lifetime network. I think the game would of did well if #1 they didn't released the game in November & #2 they didn't release the damn game on every system known to man! I hope this female-friendly doesn't turn out the way I think it will be otherwise I'd might not be able to enjoy the Tomb Raider games the same way anymore or ever buy & new Tomb Raider game! Damn, I wish they did these makeovers for stereotype charaters in video games like Cole Train(As much as I like the GOW series). OH well, I guess just like in life(not as much anymore with obama in the white house but still to a point!)minorities in video games are still seen as stereotypes.
