It was Eidosí fault from the beginning with those suggestive, disgusting ads and commercials. Square Enix fixed that right, but now they see shorts as an omen. I guess weíll never have a balance... *sigh* :/

The shorts have only ever been mentioned in a derogatory fashion since the reboot era. They were never mentioned as part of the sexualisation during the LAU era. I donít really know where itís come from. I honesty think itís a TRF urban myth where fans have convinced themselves that CF thinks itís too sexual and thatís why we wonít get them.

I will never forgive CD for making Lara's short low-rise...

Especially on the Anniversary Model with her big belt.

That last part of your post is what makes sense. Iíve never heard or read CD saying they donít put Lara in shorts because theyíre sexual, neither are shorts omen or whatever, when youíve even had Lara wearing ones in SOTTR.

The outfit Madonna's wearing reminds me of Lara's paititi outfits (but the shorts underneath)

Crystal Dynamics might have put more clothes on Lara but TR2013 is practically a masochist's wet dream and I'm not sure if that's a change for the better.

Ha, I remember being in the audience for the first ever, non-lip synched performance of Vogue (Cardiff, 2008). Lets just say it was a shock to hear how she really sounds singing it live in comparison to years of miming it

For you, Sam Lovers:

Lara has a nice voice though! She needs to start singing for real in the next game...
