A letter from Laura

A letter from Laura

So a while ago, it must have been early this spring, we did an extemporary Laura Bow shoot with Sanchez. When we did the first shoot with all three heroines we thought of doing a short movie (think classic silent era movie), but due to time constraint we never got around doing it. Instead we did this little shoot, a prequel story to the main shoot. Still haven’t given up hopes on doing that short though, and also to do a cover of “I want to marry an archeologist”. [Show as...

Diablo III – Beta test

Diablo III – Beta test

Blizzard were kind enough to finally decide to release Diablo III in May this year, May 15 to be exact, which also happens to be my birthday. That meant I would be getting myself a sweet birthday present, but also that we needed to get going with our costumes if we intended to have them ready for the midnight release. The release event ended up more of a beta test for the costumes than actually debuting finished costumes. It was actually rather nice to see what worked and what didn’t, and until the real photoshoot later this summer I’ll have both minor and major details to work on. But here’s a sneak peek on what’s to come, photos from the evening at Webhallen. [Show as...

Not a curved sword in sight

Not a curved sword in sight

A new year, and my month long vacation is at its end.  My plan was to work with my wizard costume and be finished with it by January.  Let’s just say that didn’t happen, at all. I think I might have spent maybe two or three days working with it, and then I started visiting the land of the Nords, Skyrim.  What was supposed to be a month of crafting and sewing turned in to a month of feasting and slaying dragons. And lots of swearing. You might think that I’m head over heels in love with the game after spending almost 100 hours with it, I’m not. The thing is I love the first two installments of The Elder Scrolls, Arena and Daggerfall. Few games are as precious to me as those two are,  I’ve replayed them countless times and I still can’t get enough of them. When the first trailer for Morrowind finally came out I was exalted. I had it on endless loop, driving the people around me mad. Then I tried the game, and realized that I couldn’t play it. Now I’m not proud of this, it’s a really silly reason, but I couldn’t play the game because it’s brown. I hate brown games, it’s suffocating.  And it didn’t help that the design was horrible, I’ve never seen such ugly characters. I really tried to play the game, but I just couldn’t stand it, it’s a shame because I really think I might like it. But a friend of mine have been giving me a lot of tips on different mods to use, to make the game less brown and get nicer looking characters, so some day I might actually give it another go. Oblivion then, that’s nice and green right? Too bad the game was so amazingly bad that it makes me furious just to think about it. It’s so horrid, everything from the really bland and uninspired writing and design to the equally bad (and rather hilarious) AI. That game really sucked and made me lose all hope for Skyrim (Fallout 3 didn’t make it better, seriously do they even have writers working for them?), so when Skyrim finally arrived I was less than enthusiastic. But lo and behold, the game was far better than Oblivion in all aspects, except for the interface. You have to give it to them, it really is a feat to manage to make an even worse interface than that of Oblivion, but they managed. The writing is still far from inspiring, or even that good, but it’s better. The AI is also better, but you still get the feeling that you are in a world of body snatchers. The more I play the game, the less I think of it. But it’s a step in the right direction.  And maybe, just maybe, someday Bethesda will learn how to write good storylines and dialog, make memorable characters and use more that 5-10 voice actors. Oh and re-implement all the flavor text that they stopped using because reading was...
