Both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City are 75% off on Steam right now. I've only had a little bit of experience with Arkham City; that's the extent of my playing either game so far. I am going to buy one, and I only have enough in Steam to buy one - so I'm looking for recommendations. Arkham Asylum is a couple dollars cheaper (leaving the possibility open that another game comes out on a deal that I can pick up) and it's the first one - otherwise, I don't see any reasons to buy one over the other.
So, I'm asking you folk.


Back in Form (L4D2, TF2, Minecraft)

Posted by Lucina , in Life, Video Games May 01 2013 · 59 views

Yes... as of today, I am back. B-)
And that means, of course, that I am now once more up for Left 4 Dead 2, Team Fortress 2, and Minecraft (BZPC AT LAST!!). Those of you who I have played/tried to play L4D2 with, I'm hoping to get a session going this Friday.


Regarding PYRO

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Apr 11 2013 · 197 views

So, I think most of us here are familiar with Pyro - y'know, that lovable muffled chum from Team Fortress 2 that sets everything ablaze (except every single magical wooden structure within the game).
Last year, on December 31st 2011 (which for our purposes, was so late that we'll consider it January 1st 2012) I started Mafia III: The Cult. I replaced the typical "mafia" group with a "cult" group. However, this also led to my changing up several other typical roles.
The Detective became a saviour for those the Cult kidnapped; the Doctor could save them before they were kidnapped, and could not be converted, and I even changed the official title to "Medic"(a term that has for the most part remained); and then of course the Cult turned people into new Cultists, increasing their size instead of killing off the other side.
However, I also made one other change: in Mafia there is a role known as the "Arsonist". This player is sort of like a serial killer, in that once every two rounds they kill someone, except that it is fire related, and of course they are only allied to themselves. Sometimes, there is a particular role that protects only from the Arsonist.
I changed the Arsonist to the "Pyro" - a role that was still allied only to itself. However, the Medic could not protect people from the Pyro (in a second installment, I created the "Engineer" role, which could protect from the Pyro). The Pyro would select two targets each night they were active, select a weapon to use on each one (either a flamethrower or an axe, like in TF2), and then the player to die was selected via a dice roll.
Fast forward to today, where my latest game, Bionicle Mafia III: By the Numbers - With a Vengeance has just ended. The Pyro has remained as a role within almost every single Mafia game, sometimes in a more traditional "pick one player, they die" role, and sometimes closer to its original incarnation. In this most recent game, the Medic could save Pyro targets, and the target to die was chosen by an online version of rock-paper-scissors; similar, but a little different. The next game appears to have the Pyro playing some sort of major role - he even shows up in the title! I don't know how Zakaro will use the role, but I think it's kinda cool that a role I actually invented has lasted so long.
So, here's to the Pyro remaining a role in many Mafia games to come.


My Eyeballs Burn

Posted by Lucina , in BZPower, Life, Film / Shows, MLP, Video Games Feb 10 2013 · 191 views

Now that you have been drawn in by that excellent title, let us move onto the matter at hand, which, while it did involve the use of my eyes, would be rather hard pressed to make them burn.
I'd just like to mention that for my occupation as an "eyebrow" (not gonna lie; it feels weird to type it correctly), I have a lot to say sometimes.
But then I remember that right now I have my display name on a character that refused to stop singing and talking when he'd been shot in the chest, so you know, it all works out.
What does this entry mean? Well to be honest, I don't know. An eyebrow just talks sometimes because it wishes to be heard. (Actually it's more because the eyebrow wishes to speak and does not care if he is heard or not).
What I need right now is some Team Fortress 2.
I'll get it in about... hmm... six, seven, maybe eight or nine months! Yeeaah. B-) 
It's cooool, folks.
Also I heard that a certain Twilight Sparkle was becoming a winged unicorn and that people were upset. I think that's cool too folks. B-) 
I'm outta here! There be other power business in the bionicle zone to attend to!


The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Jan 23 2013 · 165 views

Ooh boy, I am very excited for this! I never had the opportunity to play it on the Gamecube, but the game looks rather spiffy in HD. I'll definitely give it a go. Here's hoping that with this remake they're also fixing all those issues people had way back when!


The Saxxies Sucked

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Dec 01 2012 · 121 views

Where was the Saxxy for Practical Problems? Honestly. The least they could've done was give it to Sabotage... the winning video wasn't funny at all.
Also, Story of a Sentry should've won best drama.


Important Notice

Posted by Lucina , in BZPower, Video Games, Life, BZP Library Nov 15 2012 · 269 views

So it turns out I have a 70-something grade in a subject I absolutely need a 90-something in (English... bloody fantastic) so as of the moment this blog entry is posted, I am killing all internet ties for the time being until each of my marks are above an 85. What does this mean?

For the Ambage:
  • I will be unable to participate in any of the weekend write-offs until further notice. As a secondary note, do not expect me in the chats until this point arrives as well.
  • If I find the time I might still enter the flash fiction contests, but it is no guarantee.

For those of you that read my Comedies:
  • I will still update them. As of right now I am delaying the release of Vultraz Anniversary as I have yet to begin writing it, and I will not have time to write until further notice. However, thanks to my forward planning, when I remove my laptop from the equation I have a memory stick with all of the files regarding everything Tahu vs. Tahu, Dark Unto Days, and The Afterwords. Release will continue as normal.
  • The promos for The Afterwords will continue to be released. These too are on the memory stick.
  • I WILL still have the time necessary to run the Comedies Critics Club, as well as function as one of the leaders of the CF.
For those of you I do stuff with outside of BZP (Bzcraft, anything Steam):
  • I will be 100% gone from everything off of BZP until further notice. This means I will not be playing Minecraft, TF2, L4D2, GTA IV, Portal 2, etc. You will be unable to chat with me unless I activate steam on my desktop - and even if I do that, there will still be no games.
For those of you just here:
  • This blog will (most likely) be updated far less frequently. If you feel the need to talk to me about something for whatever odd reasons you have, send a pm.
Anyway, that's that. See you all in... whenever.


Left 4 Dead 2 Tonight

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Nov 02 2012 · 193 views

Chances are I'll be playing it some tonight - would anyone like to join?

Yes, Blade, I am assuming you will join in. That means there are two spots available, unless Mr. Chicken/Hero shows up, because we can't just kick out one of the main guys.


Free Copy of Left 4 Dead 2

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Oct 30 2012 · 161 views

If anybody here would like it, say so. And give me ten good reasons why I would want to give it to you, because chances are I've never actually interacted with you for more than a sentence or two.


400 Entries + Baseball

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Oct 30 2012 · 113 views

It turns out my entry on Red vs. Blue Season 10: Episode 21 was the 400th entry on this blog. So... woohoo, I guess? I need a life?]
Moving onto baseball now...

I have died several times in Left 4 Dead 2. I have become incapicitated at least twice that amount.

Is it strange that this has never, ever happened while I was wielding the baseball bat as my melee weapon?
