A magazine recently ran a 'Dilbert Quotes' contest.  They were looking for people to submit quotes from their real-life Dilbert-type managers.  These were voted the top ten quotes in corporate America :

More Tomb Raider News

Ok, I admit it.... I'm a Tomb Raider fan. Each episode has kept me occupied for far too long, negotiating my way through ever bigger levels. I guess the pinnacle for me was Tomb Raider Anniversary, combining all the advances in graphics and gameplay with the original Tomb Raider story.

This latest news does have me fired up though, even though we might be waiting until Christmas 2011 for this to hit the shelves of your local game store. A month ago I posted the first official news of the new Tomb Raider reboot, now I bring you the latest news from Crystal Dynamics... Real screenshots!
