As soon as I began to play the original GOW I realized that there was something about the game’s blend of action and tactics that set it apart from all other games in the genre. Over the years I’ve beaten both GOW campaigns with a wide various friends, family, and strangers, and still find the experience to be deeply satisfying. While some of the systems introduced in the original GOW were still in their relative infancy, the overall Gears experience was always spectacular. After playing a lot of Gears 3 over the past week I can honestly say that the Gears 1 and 2 were just an appitizer for the feast that is Gears of War 3.
The folks at Square Enix launched a web-based Scavenger Hunt this week to wet the collective whistles of gamers in preparation for the new Tomb Raider jam slated for release in early March 2013.
Challenges run from now until the game’s release, and appear to be a pretty good deal to score some free DLC for the game depending on your progress. There are 5 DLC items to unlock in all, and your participation in the hunt also gives you a chance to win some real world prizes including themed consoles, an ATV, or a trip to Fiji — all in the spirit of Tomb Raider of course. The challenges themselves, thus far, have involved answering trivia questions and uploading photos (it is, after all a Scavenger Hunt).

The hunt is currently open to those that have pre-ordered the game, and based on what we’ve already seen at past Pax events, Tomb Raider is shaping up to be a interesting and exciting release. Follow the hunt online or on your mobile at: http://trscavenger.com/login
