    I've certainly heard a lot more strong words about her changed shape than I would have deemed necessary. I think that the boob size alone on a fictional character are hardly enough to condemn a whole game over.

    Personally I don't think Lara's ever been the same since the first 5 games but not just because of her boobs lol. I've really been trying to get into the other games but they feel like a completely different game series with a completely different character.

    I've yet to try the latest one though so there's hope yet...
    I think you touched exactly the sore spot there.

    A lot of fans didn't like all those changes that started with Legend. Dramatically reducing Lara's bust size with the latest game was yet another change out of many that some fans found unnecessary and a "slap in the face" to their old, beloved Lara.

    People feel that Lara is being altered to fit the modern overly politically correct world. And it's also sending a message that large breasts = bad.

    So sure, you could argue "it's just breasts, who cares", but the same can be argued for many other aspects of what makes Lara, Lara. Fans are not happy with the fact that she has an American-ish accent now, or that she may no longer be an aristocrat. All of those things on their own may seem small (no pun intended ), but if you add them all up...

We all have to go with what we have but having less is an asset I think when jumping from ledge to ledge.
    Fun fact - Lara isn't real. She doesn't need a breast reduction to help her with jumping from ledge to ledge

    EDIT: Link has nothing to do with the scammers themselves; Ars Technica is a tech news site and wrote down their call.
    Wonderful article! What a fun read that was, thank you for posting

    I've pulled a few pranks on telemarketers, myself. It can be quite fun

    I have fun with these callers. I know they have a limited number of calls they can make in an hour. So... Keep putting them on hold! "Oops, sorry, there is somebody at the door" and walk away or just read for 5 minutes or so. Or, "Oops, I have a call on my other line, hold for a few minutes while I take care of it" and do the same thing. Put them on hold and kill a few minutes doing whatever.

    They soon either hang up from frustration and seldom, if ever, call back. For a while I was getting salesmen or scammers every five minutes. So, I started answering the phone, "You have reached 1-800-Holy Cow! God is busy at the moment. This is Gabriel. How can I help you?" The next thing I heard was "CLICK".

    Yes, I had crushes on them too ! More on Lucy, however because she kicked serious butt both as "evil" Xena and "good" Xena.

    When I saw her appearance on the sitcom Two & A Half Men on a syndicated network, with lighter hair, if I recall correctly, she looked very odd to me because, in my mind, I've been so accustomed to her Xena character's dark hair during that show's existence.

    She was so fitting as Wonder Woman in Justice League: The New Frontier.

    And, if I recall correctly, ironically, her character Xena has said to several other characters that she's been trained by some Amazonian tribes.

    Btw, I never watched the full series....did she ever actually kill anyone with that delayed neck pinch attack she does...you know, the one where she says: "You have about 30 seconds left to live. Tell me what I want to know, and I'll fix it.". That attack?
    If I recall correctly, I believe when she was evil, she had the victims die because she was a cold-blooded killer with no remorse for human life.

    But when she became good, she let them live, and, occasionally, knocked them out by punching their faces after attaining information she needed.

    I was taken aback when I saw her in the first "Spider-Man" movie. I wasn't repulsed or anything like that, but it was a bit of a shock for the same reason...



    I think it's a good look for her tho.
