‘Tomb Raider’ Developer Recruits ‘God of War 2’ Creative Director, Cory Barlog

Published

So it seems like the new Tomb Raider has just gotten sexier…and the news surprisingly has nothing to do with Lara Croft.

Santa Monica veteran Cory Barlog has just been hired by Crystal Dynamics today, and if you play a super-short game of Six Degrees of Separation with the subject being “company-and-what-company-is-working-on”, it’s safe to say that he’s not going to be assisting with the next Gex title.

Barlog’ has quite the impressive resume of high-quality titles, being best known as the director of the  God of War PS2 titles as well as creative director for Chains of Olympus and story designer for Ghosts of Sparta, Crystal studio head Daniel Gallagher is totally correct when he says that Cory is a “tremendously exciting addition to the team.”  Let’s just hope his influence adds more to the “beautiful environments and engaging story” aspect of this reboot, and that the whole “Lara Croft swinging chain blades” is a disturbing idea that stays in my mind only. Though you have to admit: Lara could totally pull off the “white ash with red paint” look.

Congratulations from OnlySP on your new positions, Cory.

New Footage Shows Off PlayStation 5 Loading Times

Marvel's Spider-Man PlayStation 4 Loading PS5

New footage has emerged demonstrating the loading times of Sony’s upcoming PlayStation console.

The Wall Street Journal technology reporter Takashi Mochizuki posted a video on Twitter showing off the new console’s loading times in Marvel’s Spider-Man. While the PlayStation 4 Pro takes 8.1 seconds to load an area, the next generation console takes 0.83 seconds.

The video also demonstrates the speed at which the upcoming console loads the game world in Marvel’s Spider-Man; while the PS4 Pro stutters while loading in the buildings of the open world, the next generation console speeds through the world without any noticeable lag.

Check out the full video below.

Sony confirmed the first details of its upcoming console last month, revealing that it will be backwards compatible and feature much more advanced technology than the PS4. OnlySP’s Daniel Pereira felt that the beefy specifications may not be entirely necessary for the console.

A sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man may be in the works, if recent job advertisements at Insomniac Games are any indication.
