Dark Souls II Is Almost Here. Are you Prepared?

DARK SOULS II
Dark Souls II: The character customisation and intense detail in the game is jaw-dropping.

Praise the sun, and prepare to die …again! FromSoftware is getting set to release Dark Souls 2 and you’d better get ready for a merciless butt-kicking.

As with its notoriously patience-testing predecessor, players will be plunged into a world of danger and despair, where they will have to exhibit a combination of skill, strategy and outright pluck to successfully navigate through the game.

The sense of unease and loneliness is amplified with death looming around every corner, and for online gamers, there is a constant threat of another player invading your quiet little world at any moment. You can’t sit and hide by the bonfire forever.

With gorgeous graphics contrasting against the harsh settings and events of the game, a vastly improved online and PVP combat system, and a much more intricate focus on enemy A.I, Dark Souls 2 is shaping up to claim more souls then ever before.

Dark Souls 2 will be released for PS3 and Xbox 360 in just under two weeks on March 14th, with very limited special preorders still available at Game and Amazon. It has been announced that the PC edition will be released on April 25th.

SunnyCon Preparations!

I’ve been buying bits and pieces for SunnyCon for a couple of weeks now, and I’ve just realised how much it’s adding up – I should definitely have started buying earlier in advance…

If any of you have ever played anything from the Dead or Alive series, then you’ll know who I’m cosplaying pretty quickly.

Kasumi from Dead or Alive has been my favourite character ever since I first played the original DOA, when I was teeny tiny.

Basically this is one of the costumes she can wear, which is available throughout most of the DOA series:

and DOA 4

I don’t think the outfit is available at all in DOA5 unless it’s going to be/already has been made available as DLC, but it was one of my favourites!

Her hair colour and eye shape (and face shape and body proportions) have changed so much since DOA 4 too, which is a shame really, but I’m just sentimental.

I still love the newer game – (and I can’t wait for Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge)

Anyway! Everything for the outfit is sorted, including the actual uniform/costume, a ginger wig (my hair has been many, many colours but I don’t know if I’d dye it ginger just for two days) and some dark brown circle lenses.

…I may have to trim the fringe slightly

I’ve also recently bought some beautiful Demonia Charade 23 platform heels which I’ll probably wear with the outfit too. They were only £17 with an RRP of like, £56-£70. And they’re an investment.

None of the stuff is here yet, but there will be photos within the next couple weeks…

And a video covering SunnyCon, of course. So, keep your eyes peeled!
