Tomb Raider Surveillance

http://sf.metblogs.com/archives/images/2006/09/CNETraider-thumb.JPG
Passing by the CNET building on 2nd Street, I glanced up the facade and saw an odd sight – what appeared to be Lara Croft in full raider regalia (and I don’t mean a black & silver football jersey) seemingly sighting on the unsuspecting pedestrians down below.

I know that CNET offers the Xbox game Tomb Raider on their shopper site, and therefore probably have this figure floating around their office as a promo item, but I’d think in this day and age, positioning a figure with a (seemingly) deadly weapon above a publicly accessible plaza MIGHT have been rethought….

    As if there weren’t already enough people walking around with guns.

    Heavily armed, scantily clad female seen sniping on 2nd street!

    It is in their arcade which has a fighting game and a light gun game in it! Oh the world has become such a horrible place.

    That would likely be GameSpot’s office space. Most game pubs have a lifesize Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid 3′s promotions, as well.
