Tomb Raider: Underworld DLC out today.
Once regarded with uniform suspicion, premium downloadable content for console games has thrown off some of that stigma in recent months, as the likes of GTAIV: The Lost and Damned and the Mirror's Edge Pure Time Trial Pack have advanced the original games in directions influenced by critical and community response.
Tomb Raider: Underworld's first downloadable Xbox 360 episode, Beneath the Ashes, should be released on 24th February following its unexpected delay earlier this month.
Eidos has announced the new downloadable content for Tomb Raider: Underworld has been delayed, blaming "an unexpected technical issue".
It's the first face-off of the New Year and with it, the opportunity to bring the cold, hard, iron first of order to the games cupboard by rounding up the games we really should have covered by now, but didn't for reasons too numerous and too tedious to get into. It's also the chance to take a look at how the first high profile release of 2009 - EA's Lord of the Rings: Conquest - measures up under Eurogamer's unyielding scrutiny.
As we've got a lot of software to get through, we've bumped up the interesting games to the front of the feature, then grouped together the rest in the form of smaller, round-up featurettes at the end. However, as per the norm, all games get the full screenshot gallery treatment - captures losslessly derived from the HDMI ports of both consoles at full range 24-bit RGB precision. Where PS3 outputs a 1080p signal on any given game, additional galleries are provided, along with their 360 counterparts.
For the headline games there's also the customary video coverage. Set your Flash Player to 'high quality' to appreciate the full might of h264 encoding, or check out the author's blog if you want to download bandwidth-saturating full-HD versions running in real time, optimised for playback on PS3, Xbox 360 and dual-core PCs.
Eidos has estimated that 1.5 million copies of Tomb Raider: Underworld have been sold worldwide.
An impressive figure, but one that's lower than the company expected - and financial forecasts have been amended as a result.
"On a global basis our sell through to 31st December, which we estimate at approximately 1.5 million units, is below our internal forecasts, primarily due to a lower start in North America," Eidos said in a statement.
Eidos is investigating a glitch that stops players making progress in the Wii version of Tomb Raider: Underworld.
Call of Duty: World at War has clung onto the UK all-formats top spot this week despite a chart stuffed with newcomers.
How did you spend November 1998? I spent it having conversations like this.
"Try jumping to that pillar over there." "I've tried that, it's too far." "Are you sure? It definitely looks like she could make that." "I know. She can't. I've tried." "Oh. What about those rocks over on the left? Can't she climb up those?" "No." "But she climbed up that other bit before." "I know. I don't know. Hang on, what if... Yes, that's it... No... NO... YOU STUPID F****** BIG-TITTED B**** I HATE YOU I HATE YOU WHY ARE YOU LIKE THIS I'M GLAD YOU'RE DEAD." "Oh dear. Can we put Baywatch on?"
How are you spending November 2008? I've spent it having conversations like that. (Except Baywatch has been replaced by Deal or No Deal and every other statement includes the word "bevelled", but more on that later.) Yes, it's time for a new Tomb Raider game. This one's prettier and shinier than ever, but it's still Tomb Raider. You can tell because of all the beautiful environments, clever puzzles, complex acrobatics and the moments you want to punch Lara Croft in the face until she's nothing more than a grotesque bloody stump atop a huge pair of tits.
Eidos has popped a PC demo of Tomb Raider: Underworld on the internet.

One month to go.
Eidos won't thank us for bringing it up, but let's go back to 2003, and Angel of Darkness. It's just come out - plunged from the development womb into the amniotic fluid of fiscal desperation - and someone's called up Crystal Dynamics and asked them to step in. That must have been a heck of a call to answer after half a dozen Tomb Raiders, and we only bring it up because we're trying to think of a good touchstone for our present situation, trying to come up with something good for Eurogamer's fourth preview of Tomb Raider: Underworld, due out this time next month.
Tomb Raider is well known for its carefully orchestrated thrills, yet it's not the daredevil leaps, walls of spikes, or angry squid that tends to makes me nervous. Instead, my perennial fear is that the next time I attend an Underworld preview, I'll have to survive an awkward meeting with one of the Lara Croft models. I can handle the lava floes and the shoot-outs and the prospect of being clotheslined by a zombie Viking - living in Brighton, I deal with these things every day - but the thought of grimacing through a photo op that could be entitled, "Beautiful woman meets socially-awkward pumpkin-head" fills me with real terror. It hardly sounds like the high point of her life, either.
Microsoft has secured the exclusive rights to distribute two downloadable add-on episodes for Tomb Raider: Underworld on Xbox Live following the release of the game.
Tomb Raider: Underworld - Beneath the Ashes and Tomb Raider: Underworld - Lara's Shadow will offer "up to six hours of new gameplay and content" between them.
We asked how much the two episodes would cost, but Eidos was unable to give us an answer at the time of publication.
Eurogamer France gets up close.
Underworld's first trailer may have suggested total revolution, with Croft Manor blasted into dust while Mozart's Requiem shriekingly heralds the end of the entire world, but Eidos' slow striptease reveal of Tomb Raider's next instalment suggests that very little of the fundamental experience is going to change much.
Eidos has hired Alison Carroll, 23, from Croydon, as the next in a long line of Lara Croft models.

Arse is the new tits. That's just one of the trends I noticed emerging from this year's E3, which is to gaming what London Fashion Week is to people who make trousers for a living. Other trends include games set in post-apocalyptic American cities (I counted approximately 47,000 of these), and games about shooting mud-coloured monsters with no hair, gaping maws and the gait of an irritated orangutan (I counted approximately 47,000 of these, of which 47,000 were set in a post-apocalyptic American city).
Eidos has told Eurogamer that Tomb Raider Underworld will be released across Europe on 21st November - three days after it goes on sale in the US.
Eidos has confirmed the latest instalment in the Tomb Raider series will be released in November.
Eidos has confirmed four titles it plans to show off at E3 next month.
Topping the bill is Tomb Raider: Underworld, in which Lara gets some fancy new moves and an army of new enemies to battle.
Then there's Just Cause 2, the sequel to the 2006 action game. Hopefully it'll improve over Just Cause 1, or as it's otherwise known Just Cause 6/10. Like Underworld, it's on the way for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
SCi, parent company of Tomb Raider publisher Eidos, has said that is plans to cut jobs as part of a radical restructuring plan, GamesIndustry.biz reports.
Lara puts on her snorkel and diving suit.
Eidos parent SCi has decided to hold the new Tomb Raider game back until the fourth calendar quarter of 2008.
Although their existence won't come as a surprise to anyone, Microsoft has announced the names of a few upcoming games that have found their way into the Games for Windows line-up.
US magazine PLAY has revealed new details of the rumoured Tomb Raider Underworld game in development at Crystal Dynamics.
The game is tentatively aimed at next year on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, according to Tomb Raider Chronicles' dissection of the preview.
Set after the events of Tomb Raider Legend, Underworld is - in the magazine's phrase - "pure woman versus wild".
Eidos has kept quiet over suggestions that new Lara outing will be called Tomb Raider: Underworld.
