All doesn't matter anyway becaaaaause:

Studio head Darrell Gallagher said in a prepared statement: "We were not clear in a recent E3 press interview and things have been misunderstood. Sexual assault of any kind is categorically not a theme that we cover in this game."
Crystal Dynamics and publisher Square Enix were yesterday at the centre of a media storm regarding the next Tomb Raider game allegedly featuring a rape attempt on the global gaming icon. National media in the UK and the US also picked up the item.

But Gallagher insists that the game's producer, Ron Rosenberg, had misspoken when discussing the scene.

Said Gallagher: "One of the character-defining moments for Lara in the game, which has been incorrectly referred to as an 'attempted rape scene', is the content we showed at this year's E3 where Lara is forced to kill another human being for the first time. In this particular section, while there is a threatening undertone in the sequence and surrounding drama, it never goes any further than the scenes that we have already shown publicly."

I hope this is true, and the devs aren't just caving in under all the controversy and not sticking to their guns. Games should be allowed to tackle stuff like this in their storylines without a tonne of retarded 'controversy' springing up with it, gaming storylines have become just as good as movies in this generation and shouldn't be treated differently in ways like this, and how they're evil and make children into murderers, etc.
