Assassin’s Creed Rogue Announced

Holy cow is November going to be a busy month! We have Assassin’s Creed Unity releasing October 28th, the Halo Master Chief Collection releasing November 11th, and now it has been announced that Assassin’s Creed Rogue will release on November 11th as well!

Assassin’s Creed Rogue (code name Assassin’s Creed Comet) tells the story of Shay Patrick Cormac, an assassin who turns his back on the Brotherhood and becomes a Templar. Yes, that’s right, you get to play as a Templar! This game is said to be the “darkest chapter in the Assassin’s Creed franchise”. I can’t wait!

The game is releasing for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 only.

Lady Black Cosplay – Part 3

My Lady Black costume is finally done! And just in time too… San Diego Comic Con is only 10 days away! I only had a few things left to make since my last update, but they took a lot more time and effort then I expected.

The blouse was made out of an off-white crinkle material using the Simplicity 3677 Pattern. The sash around my waist was made using the same material.

As for the arm guards and the belt, I created my own pattern using some scrap fabric and then made the real thing using the same faux leather from making the jacket.

The rest of the accessories were purchased from a variety of locations:

Hat: Costume Cauldron
Boots: Shiekh Shoes (A fantastic place to look for affordable shoes!)
Replica Guns: Amazon
Wig: Epic Cosplay Wigs (After trying a few wigs from other online shops, Epic Cosplay gave me the one I needed)

I am so excited to wear this costume to San Diego Comic Con. Come back soon to read about my adventure as a pirate assassin at the convention.

Lady Black Cosplay – Part 2

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATime for another update on my Lady Black costume! Yes, I know it has been a while since I shared my progress… but look how awesome it looks!

I finally found the perfect buckles for the corset. I love how it turned out. I may have to find more costumes that I can use it with!

I also finished the skirt of the costume. I found a beautiful green fabric that has a slightly crinkled look to it (which works perfectly for the pirate look I’m trying to achieve). The skirt was sewn to the back of the leather jacket and ties in the front. There are two layers to the skirt, the green crinkle material and a white inner layer with lace around the edge.

After finishing the skirt, I moved on to the shorts. This was possibly the most frustrating part of the whole project so far. First of all, it was impossible to find a good material for the shorts. I think I went to 5 different shops looking for fabric. After finally finding the fabric, I tried to make my own pattern using a pair of shorts I already had (why buy a $20 pattern when I can make my own?)… it didn’t work as smoothly as I was hoping. The shorts ended up needing a lot of modification to fit properly. But they are finally done!

I only have two more things to make (the blouse, and the belt) and then all that’s left are the accessories! Check back soon for the final update!

Top 10 E3 Reveals

Like many others, I spent last week watching for any updates from E3. All I can say is holy cow am I going to be spending a lot of money on games in the next year! Here are the top 10 upcoming games from E3 that I am looking forward to.

10. The Witcher 3
I haven’t had the chance to play any of the previous Witcher games… but I would be willing to give it a try in order to play this on.

9. Civilization: Beyond Earth
Forget playing with civilizations from Earth’s past, lets create a civilizations for the future!

8. Sunset Overdrive
I somehow missed this game when it was reviled at the last E3, but it looks like a ton of fun to play.

7. Legend of Zelda Wii U
The trailer doesn’t show much, but man is it gorgeous. This game is promised to be an open world game. If you want to walk to the mountains in the distance, now you can.

6. The Division
As depressing as this trailer is, it looks like its going to be a really good game.

5. Captain Toad
Toad gets his own game on 3DS! How could you not fall in love with this game!

4. Destiny
Destiny is slowly catching hold of me. I wasn’t too excited about the game before, but this trailer has sparked my interest. And having Peter Dinklage as your AI companion is definitely a plus!

3. Assassin’s Creed Unity
Two words that sets this game apart from the other Assasin’s Creed games… Co-Op Campaign!

2. Tomb Raider: Rise of the Tomb Raider
Square Enix did such a good job with the last Tomb Raider game. I love that they are telling the story of how Lara Croft becomes the Tomb Raider we know and love. This next game looks like it will be darker and more intense than the last one! I can’t wait!


1. Halo Master Chief Collection and Halo Guardians
And of course, the game I am most excited for is the Halo Master Chief Collection. All 4 Halo games will be on one disk with 4000 gamer score, over 100 multiplayer maps, custom playlists, access to the Halo 5 beta, and access to Halo: Nightfall (a new live action that ties into Halo 5’s story). November can’t come soon enough!

There was so much more that was shown at E3 this year. What are you most excited for? Share your favorite upcoming game in a comment below!
