    **APRIL FOOLS' JOKE** Breaking news! Laura goes back to her roots!

    LONDON, UK – April 2010 – Lara GOING BACK TO HER ROOTS – FORUM EXCLUSIVE NEWS

    We’re adding a new and immersive dimension to gamer democratization with Laura Croft and the Guardian of Light. We want to bring empowerment to players by allowing them to dynamically make-over the tones of Laura's hair from traditional brunette to killer blonde as we look to move into a new space while breaking down barriers and challenging accepted convention. During a deep-dive mindshare we asked 'what would Laura do?' And we concluded..... ‘she would do blonde’. We wanted to leverage that connection with Laura and take her back to her roots - only this time her roots are butterscotch blonde.

    Just blonde? Or can we sort of pick any color for her hair haha. That would be fun.

    Throw in customizable outfits, too haha. That would be cool.

    See, even Laura wants some of the Valentine Machine...

    P.S. I hate the name 'Laura' cause it makes it sound posh and me no likey posh people!:P

    Aww damn, I've missed the April Fools joke when it actually mattered!

    I tried to keep safe 'till after noon so no one could play a trick on me... it's kinda an unwritten rule that in some countries you can't play an April's fools joke on somebody after noon; if you do we're all able to call the prankster a "fool" for the rest of the day. ^.^;

    Classic April fools joke. Love Love2Raid's pics. I want Laura to go back to her roots but certainlly not in that way.

    Lol They even changed it to type Laura when we type Lara. Yes I am aware that both mentions will appear as Laura.

    I realise it's an April Fools, but what's the problem with a blonde Lara?

    You know with all these discussions about what hair colour Lara should have, I've decided that it would be so much easier if Crystal just made her bald!

    Well, I didn't thought a minute that was true, but I liked the joke ^^. And the screen looks good and the graphics seem to be better than in the other screens...

    April Fool's Day is so much fun especially if you successfully made prank to your office mates. Since we just had April Fools Day, and the requisite April Fools pranks, people wonder what some of the high profile ones that occured were, and there were some gems. The BBC ran a story that there were spaghetti trees in Switzerland, and lots of people went for it, and they also ran a documentary about flying penguins, starring Terry Jones, which should are a tip off. Then there was sports writer George Plimpton's article about Sydd Finch, an American baseball player that had been raised in China and threw a 168 mph fastball and was debuting as a rookie for the Mets.
