In a few short hours the realms will be pulled offline and the new patch will be playable by the time the realms come online. Well, “playable” at any rate. Bazinga! Thing is, for the first time in the history of the game, I managed only about a week of 5.1 and as excited as I am for Warcrafty stuff – and itching to get to BlizzCon with wifey this year – I’m just not feeling it for this one quite yet. Or am I just subconsciously resisting? More
It is finally here! Just days away from launch, and I cannot wait. This is looking to be the best Tomb Raider to date and the reboot of going back to the roots – both hers and what made the first game so damn great – shows that it can be done, if done right. This is probably going to be one of my Game of the Year choices. Just sayin’!

One of the larger elements of almost any RPG – such as World of Warcraft or Skyrim – is crafting. Blacksmithing, tailoring and leather-working mean that you get to create your own costume, level up your skills and be ready for battle. One gamer has maxed out her real-life crafting skills and makes incredible bespoke costumes for others as well as herself. She married in June 2010 creating a themed bride-and-groom costume for her renaissance-themed wedding. Over the last month we’ve chatted back and forth about the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot – I’m willing to wager that Deanna is the biggest Lara Croft fan on the planet – and today she is talking to us about her handiwork:
How long have you been into costuming/leatherwork? I’ve been doing costuming for about nine years (holy cats! I didn’t realize it was that long) and leatherworks for about five.
So what got you started? I remember watching the first Resident Evil movie, falling in love with Alice’s red dress and thinking “I bet I could make that…” I had sewed a few random things here and there, but nothing too extravagant. I promptly went to the fabric store for supplies, busted out my mom’s sewing machine and threw together a horrible polyester rendition of that dress. It wasn’t perfect, but I loved it. When I started researching online about costuming I found out about cosplay. I was like “It’s a thing! People dress up as video game and movie characters and it’s called Cosplay!” From there, I was hooked. More
Just a couple of hours ago the new Tomb Raider trailer, shown live on the Spike TV’s GameTrailers, came with the announcement that the game’s launch is now pushed back from Q4 this year to March 2013.
I cannot tell you how long I’ve been waiting for this game since seeing the original trailer but, my goodness me, March cannot come quick enough. Stunning, beautiful CGI that rolls so smoothly into the gameplay… yes please!
