Paintball, Video Games & Comic Books Join Forces!

(DM) – Wednesday March 22, 2017 Paintball, video games, comic books what?  What do these have in common? A lot more than you may know. In short, these pastimes have converged with cosplay. In a word, LARP’ing. LARP is an acronym, Live Action Role Playing. It came about from fantasy dice games coming to life where players actually dressed in costume. More than just dressing their part, players acted out what the game roll of their dice required using prop swords and prop knives in mock battle for example. 

How does LARP’ing connect to paintball, video games and comic books?  Consider the saying, “All dressed up and nowhere to go.”

You have this great outfit with some practical uses, but not put to use. That’s a bummer. You can see where this is going now can’t you? Paintball, comic books and video games have joined forces not to simply look the part, but play practical roles. Not all costumed characters lend well to this but many do. Seen below are masks that don't work well for paintball but would work with paintball's cousin, airsoft. However with the right eye coverage (high impact lexan) these two could be paintball ready.
Cosplay from New York Comic-ConPaintballers, video gamers, and comic book readers often overlap in interest. Paintball is the one activity where you get to exert yourself physically. For year’s video gamers have been in awe of some of the on screen outfits worn by their virtual counterparts yearning to act out in real life what they enjoyed on the small screen. Comic book heroes bring that same desire to the table.

Enter cosplay which is short for costume play. In most respects cosplay precedes LARP’ing. If you’ve dressed up for Halloween or a costume party, you’ve cosplay’d. It’s reached epic proportions inConnor Kenway Paintball Hood

(DM) – Friday June 17, 2016 Koei Tecmo, the Japanese gaming company most famous for Dynasty Warriors has announced a game based around the wildly popular Attack on Titan franchise.

There are three modes of play – Tutorial, Battle, and Titan. In Tutorial and Battle mode, players are able to fly through the air on “Vertical Maneuvering Equipment”, which to those unfamiliar with the series can think of as moving around like Spiderman with several swords strapped to his sides.Attack on Titan Gameplay Titans can only be killed by grappling on to a body part, swinging through the air, and cutting out a sizeable chunk at the nape of the neck in one fluid motion. So far there have been no complaints about a drop in graphics or gameplay quality with this fast paced movement from those who demoed at E3....Read more...

(DM) – Wednesday May 25, 2016 Following the Gwen Stacy craze that transpired with the popularity of Spider-Gwen, and the Amazing Spider-man 2, Marvel decided they didn’t have enough of our money and gave us more Gwen Stacy and, hey, how’s this for an idea? Deadpool is popular, what if they were combined like some sort of cash cow from hell? Except, joke’s on us! She’s not Gwen Stacy and she’s not related to Deadpool!

Gwen Poole aka Gwenpool


So who is this pink and white lunatic running around Marvel’s universe? Where did she come from?

Gwenpool’s inception was originally an amalgamation of Gwen Stacy and Deadpool. She appeared in Howard the Duck,Howard the Duck Variant Gwenpool volume 4, the “Gwen Stacy” variant of Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars issue 2, and in her own one-off special. Despite her similar look to Peter Parker’s once dead girlfriend, now alternate universe superhero, Gwenpool is actually a girl named, you guessed it, Gwen Poole. Gwen is from our world, the one where Marvel characters only exist in comics. And she is a huge fan of them all. Gwen gets to experience what any comic fan would give a left tit or testicle for (we’re all-inclusive here) and is sucked into the fantasy world of Marvel....Read more...
