  2. Valkyrie Needs Food Badly: New Gauntlet Video Game On The Way [TRAILER]

    old gods do new jobs

    I'm pretty sure 1985's Gauntlet introduced me to the concept of a Valkyrie so you can bet I'm excited for this revamp of the classic. Arrowhead Game Studios are developing the game which will be a top-down co-op action RPG for PCs (with Steam integration). And your favorite characters will be back. According to the release, "Each character has its own unique strengths and weaknesses. For example, the Warrior does the most damage in melee combat, the Wizard has the most powerful magic, the Valkyrie has the most armor and the Elf moves the fastest." "Valkyrie has the most armor" - music to my ears. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  4. Mew-Mew the Brave Will Protect Your Castle In Cat Armor

    We Can Cause More Damage That Way

    Etsy user schnabuble has some pretty interesting things for sale in their shop but perhaps none more so than this - Cat Battle Armor. They write, "100% wearable, flexible, and comfortable, the Cat Battle Armor is a for-reals armor harness for your kitty. Completely hand-made from durable veg-tan leather, this is no mere costume piece. Your cat will become an unstoppable force for slaughter in this fully articulated suit, shielding him/her from foes while allowing unimpeded movement across the battlefield or living room floor." At first I was like, "I'll take 2!" And then I saw it was $500 and remembered my cats would murder me in my sleep if I tried.

  6. Real Life Iron Man Armor Commissioned by US Military

    i swear by my pretty floral bonnet i will end you

    The Adventure Time nerd in me is asking whether Samantha Swords (her stage name) is related to Susan Strong, the D&D playing part of me is shushing it so that we don't piss off the 2013 winner of the long sword event in the Harcourt Park World Invitational Jousting Tournament. Samantha also designs her own swords. You can watch an interview with her at Fashionably Geek. Previously in Armor

  10. It’s Time for a Serious Discussion About Boob Plate Armor

    Women warriors tend to have it pretty rough when it comes to armor selection. If one is looking for a metal protective suit that offers more in the way of protection than the dubious security, and comfort, of the chain mail bikini, then options are limited and the available breastplates tend to be...well, pretty literal. And they may be even less safe than they seem. Tor.com blogger Emily Asher-Perrin offered a great critique of why "boob plate armor" would be an unwise order from your local blacksmith, and the matter deserves a moment of your time.
