Custom Jeep for movie[edit]

I found out that Jeep made a custom Wrangler for the Movie "The Cradle of Life", but I'm judging whether or not it's worth adding.

[1]

Here's what I wrote in case any of you decide this is worth adding: "During the production of The Cradle of Life, Jeep was assigned to make a specialized Jeep Wrangler for the movie. It was basically a custom Jeep Wrangler with attachments to improve durability and lighting. It was later marketed as a custom Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Tomb Raider edition, and its sales hinged on the success of the movie. "

Mac versions of Tomb Raider[edit]

There is no information regarding Tomb Raider video game releases for Macintosh computers. This link could be used as a reference unless anyone else has better information. It has release dates and publisher information.

Serge's notes/questions/suggestions[edit]

  • I was asked to give a read through on the article's rewrites. Here are some notes I'm leaving over the course of my read through.
  1. The introduction sentence says that it was 'stylized as as an alternate title for a period. "Stylizations usually refer more to things like Kesha going as Ke$ha or bizarre capitalizations/formatting (Filter (band) often writes their name as FILTER.) I'd chose something more to the capacity of "was known as" or "called" or something. Otherwise, the lead does a great job of summarizing a lot of content, I like it.

  2. I know in the games section, you're mostly just outlining titles and platforms, but it might be good to say how/why the spinoffs are spinoffs. (ie mentioning a genre/gameplay shift. Nothing more than a phrase, or even just a genre addition - "In 2009 they released the racing video game Lara Kart" type comment.) However, if you object, then that's fine too - I see you removed this element from my version of the Tales (series) article years back as well. It took me this long to realize it there, so obviously its not that big of a deal. I don't know how it is in the Tomb Raider series, but I know in some series (Sonic the Hedgehog (series)) the fanbase is always bickering over main/spinoff status stuff. This might help if it occurs here at all. Sergecross73 msg me 17:46, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

Origin platform[edit]

It's absurd to try to claim the only platform of origin was the Saturn due to a 3-4 week exclusivity period. It's not like it was later ported to Windows and PlayStation, they were initial release platforms. Sega just got a few weeks marketing time. -- ferret (talk) 15:03, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

Seconded. It clear that all three releases are all the same game, developed concurrently with one another. This isn't a Saturn game, later ported to PlayStation, or something like that. (That sort of thing pretty much never happened, due to the complicated Saturn hardware...) Sergecross73 msg me 13:16, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

2013 continuity[edit]

The 2013 continuity should maybe refer to the new games more, for example there is no plane crash mentioned in them, and Lara's father is said to have been killed by a Trinity assassin (though at the beginning, Lara believes he has committed suicide). What actually happened is hinted to be revealed in an upcoming game 217.85.208.67 (talk) 13:02, 9 April 2016 (UTC)
