JMJ is legend

I thought I was receiving a GCN Controller Adapter, not that and a special NYCC limited edition transparent Tahu Mask! *shakes fist*
But still!

I thank you very much. Now I can play Smash Bros. the way that it was meant to be played, and I have my first little bit of Bionicle 2015 as well! TBH I'm really excited about the mask because I didn't think I'd actually ever see one in person, let alone OWN it.

Now to fight the urge to open it until I can assemble all six 2015 Toa together.

This is gonna be tough. ;_;

Thank you again!

6 Years

Posted by CHRIS PRATT , in BZP Library, BZPower, Smash Files, Games & Trivia Dec 22 2014 · 103 views

So. I have been on BZPower as a member for six years. First off, to celebrate, here is a little something for Extermination.

I thought I'd go over some of the milestones from the past six years in this entry, that way I can never do it again.

2008
-I joined the site on December 22. Obviously.

2009
-In January I released my first comedy, Vultraz's Diner. To this day, the character Vultraz is near and dear to my heart.
-I entered my first contest on BZPower (a BBC contest), and obviously did not win. MOCs are not my strong suit.
-I also played The BZPower Challenge 2 in the Games & Trivia forum, almost a year and a half before I would return to the forum to play any of the Mafia games.

2010
-I joined the Comedies Critics Club.
-I changed my name for the first time (I don't count my name change in 2009), and I have been swapping names ever since.
-I hosted my first Mafia game, Bionicle Mafia 31: Mind Games. It was a disaster.
-I released Tahu vs. Tahu - my crowning achievement in the Comedies forum. While I might have started my career on BZPower with Vultraz's Diner, it is Tahu vs. Tahu that is nearest and dearest to my heart. Even now I long to bring it back, and if I can find a way to make it work with a new storyline taking place in 2015, then I will. I absolutely will. It actually released on December 19th - whether it is coincidence or not, 19 is my favorite number.

2011
-I helped to host the first (and last) ever Comedies Awards.
-Tahu vs. Tahu landed on the Hot Topics list several times.
-I became a premier member, and got my blog.
-The forums went offline for six months; when they returned, I was one of the members who returned - and actually stayed.
-I became interested in MLP right in the middle of the MLP craze, and was inspired to create three horrible, horrible display names. Ugh.

2012
-I finally hosted another Mafia game; Mafia III: The Cult. It would go on to be the first in a "Mafia III" series that has, so far, lasted four games.
-I revived the Comedies Critics Club, taking charge.
-I released How to Be a Hero, my second-most popular comedy after Tahu vs. Tahu. It eventually sort of quietly died off thanks to a lack of updates from myself, and the topic is just a mess now thanks to the coding errors that hit BZPower around this time last year. I had always wanted to re-write it in prose, but I don't really see the point anymore. It'd be too much time that I could spend on something else.
-I completed Tahu vs. Tahu after four seasons and almost two years;I should have left it at that. Regretfully, I allowed myself to follow through on the horrible idea of a sequel; The AfterWords was released that December. The AfterWords eventually ended after two seasons and less than a year, although the last few chapters were lost in the October 2013 Hacking and have not been reposted. I consider The AfterWords mostly non-canon.
-I also helped to organize the first (out of two) Comedies "Expos", where authors gathered to tease projects that they were working on.

2013
-I hosted Bionicle Mafia III: By the Numbers, which until very recently had the fastest signups in Mafia history.
-I started the Smash Files blog post series, detailing my thoughts on all news and other information regarding Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U.
-Together with Portalfig, I co-hosted the Darkest Days Trilogy of Mafia games, celebrating the fact that Bionicle Mafia X: Darkest Dawn was the 50th main series Mafia game on BZPower. It was also the first time anyone had co-hosted a Mafia game since Mind Games.
-Portalfig and I also did most of the work on the BZP Mafia Wiki, although it has since become outdated thanks to a lack of updates.

2014
-I got featured on the front page for two of my epics (Isolation and Extraction), which is very cool.
-I became a POBZPC, earning the orange (and promptly changed my name to "Sir Voltex the Blue" just to confuse everybody). The name change did its job quite nicely.
-I finally relaunched Bionifight as Bionifight Ultimate; it is the largest topic in Games & Trivia, and the biggest game in the series.
-I hosted Bionicle Mafia XIX: The Voltex Constant, which beat By the Numbers to hold the NEW record for the fastest signups in Mafia history.
-I also feel like this year, I became more active in the larger community of BZPower itself, rather than just sticking to one or two subforums like glue; I've popped in all over the place.

2015
-What is coming? Well... I will admit that I've never hosted an RPG before..... ;)

guess what arrived today :D (Smash File 66 oh god)

It is so beautiful

Even better, though, is that I still have two days to return the black controller to EB Games and get a refund from them! Everything is working out, huzzah! This is also the part of the show where I publicly thank JMJ for the GCN adapter that he's sent to me, even though it hasn't arrived yet (whenever it does there will, of course, be an entry to celebrate the momentous occasion).

Anyway, that's all for now!

The Nintendo Conspiracy is slowly being overcome!

a small preview

Posted by CHRIS PRATT , in Teaser, BZP Library Dec 17 2014 · 71 views

From Chapter 1 of EXTERMINATION:

Something was not right.

“Hey, you! What’s your name?!”

Voltex turned at the sound of the voice – a Ko-Matoran wearing a black cloak and dragging a massive scythe four times his size behind him. There was only one Matoran in Metru-Nui that would carry around a weapon that obnoxious….

“Is that you, Voxumo?” Voltex asked, coughing as he stood to his feet, leaning on the receptionist desk before him.

“It is,” the Ko-Matoran said, eyes glinting. His armor was stained a light gray. “And you are?”

“Voltex,” the Ba-Matoran said, confused. “I was… don’t you remember me?”

Voxumo shook his head, striding forward and pausing several feet away.

“Are there any other survivors?” Voltex asked, ignoring the feeling in the back of his mind that something was not right.

“A couple more are back there,” the Ko-Matoran said, pointing the way he had come. “They’ve decided to work together and search for survivors right now. You’re the first we’ve found, though.”

“That… makes sense?” Voltex replied, unsure.

Voxumo nodded. “You’ll also be the last.”

About to speak again, Voltex could only groan as Voxumo swung the scythe, catching him in the stomach with the tip of the blade. The Ko-Matoran yanked it out and coldly began to walk away, as Voltex fell to his knees, his world fading away.

“You’re doomed, Voltex,” Voxumo called back, his voice echoing strangely. “You just don’t know it yet.”
This isn’t right, Voltex thought woozily. It didn’t happen like this….

Chapter 1 releases Friday, December 19th.

End of an Era

Shown above is the Games & Trivia forum, listing the topics with the highest number of posts. Since 2011, when the forums first returned under this new look, Bionifight 4 has reigned as the topic with the highest number of posts, surpassed only by Bionifight Ultimate.

As you can see above, Bionifight 4's time has come to an end; soon, the Bionicle Last Letter Game shall receive the two posts required to pass Bionifight 4.

Truly, it is the end of an era. And yes, I secretly hope that the last letter game will for some reason be closed before it can overtake Bionifight Ultimate. :P

I'll just let that sit with you all and confuse you for the next few weeks while I work on things behind the scenes.

Release Date! (BZP Story Update) + PREVIEW

Posted by CHRIS PRATT , in BZP Library Dec 11 2014 · 162 views

A Matoran with sleek black and silver armor sat at a wooden desk, staring at the lit computer screen. Checking behind him to make sure that the door was shut, he let out a small sigh and turned back to the screen, tapping the microphone perched beside the keyboard to make sure that it was functional. Satisfied, he opened his mouth and began to speak.
“Journal entry one-zero-one,” he said. “Let’s recap.”

---

He blinked, and then he and Blade were sitting across from each other at a desk in an office, Voltex having evidently tried a futile attempt to bring the computer terminal online.

“Blade, there’s... something I need to tell you,” he said slowly, tapping the underside of the desk nervously. The words seemed to leave him of their own accord.

“What is it?” Blade asked.

“I’m the Detective,” Voltex started, causing Blade to burst into a smile that seemed disturbingly sinister.

“Don’t worry about it,” the Vo-Matoran interrupted, waving his hand dismissively. “I’ve suspected that you were the Detective ever since we found your equipment.”

“No, it’s not that,” Voltex muttered, fiddling with the Repulsor Arm. “It’s... Xaeraz made me the Detective for a reason, Blade.”

The Vo-Matoran’s gaze narrowed. “And what are you ‘truly doing’, Tex?”

He took a deep breath, inwardly battling against the words that were preparing to tumble out of his mouth - he failed, and continued to speak. “I work for the White Council.”

That’s not true though, he thought blearily. What’s happening?

“You must be lying,” Blade breathed, his mouth hanging open. “How much do you know?”

His throat was dry.

“I-” Voltex coughed before speaking again, unable to stop himself. “They wanted to get rid of all of their enemies in one stroke, Blade. Anyone that could pose a threat to their rule, eliminated all at once.”

Blade shot up and Voltex just barely held back a flinch as the Vo-Matoran stalked towards him, shoving his finger into the Ba-Matoran’s chest and causing Voltex to stumble back.
“You disgust me,” Blade snarled, pushing him to the floor, his voice laced with lethal sarcasm. “Why are you here, Tex?”

---

Voltex shook his head wearily. “I don’t really care what you decide to do, Burnmad. I’m not even certain that I can lead a war anymore. Too many Matoran are dying on my account - dying at my command. How many did you lose just to reach me?”

“We… aren’t entirely sure,” Burnmad said.
“No? Because Portalfig gave me the numbers before he left,” the Ba-Matoran repled. “He said you’re missing nearly fifty. Almost half a hundred Matoran lost in an attempt to contact me. I’m not so sure that can be counted as a victory, Burnmad - or that it should have been done at all.”

---

“In a few hours, I leave to lead a small team of only three Matoran, including myself, to try and infiltrate the Coliseum. If we are successful, we may be able to win this war within the week. If we are not… well, I doubt I shall survive to see another sunrise."

Regarding Raffles

Posted by CHRIS PRATT , in BZPower Dec 10 2014 · 90 views

When there's more than one prize (for simplicity, let's say there are two) in a raffle... could the same member theoretically win every prize in that raffle?
That'd be some seriously miraculous number crunching

We're not teaching university science classes here, we're playing a text based fighting game where the objective is to beat your opponents into oblivion.

Get back in your grave, you.

*Slaps with tombstone*

Also, what pay are you gonna get as iBrow's slave?

Chro suddenly developed arachnophobia.

explain it with a convoluted quadruple negative.

Although everyone should go sign up for that game now.
And tell your friends.
And your moms.
Maybe not that last bit.

Poor Lhikan. Demoted from riding on top of an awesome Rahi to being packed in with a bunch of batteries as an afterthought.

However, this does not mean we no longer want to kill the rest of you for evading death. In fact, we would like to destroy you all, because we feel like it and we're the bad guys, the latter of which we only just realised.

...You guys didn't realize we were the villains all along?

You thought I was a good guy? ? ?

MY NAME IS RIGHT THERE

None of us are actually competent. We run around like headless chickens, if headless chickens were capable of wielding assault rifles and broadswords.

Man
I'm gonna bluff you guys so hard you won't even know that I'm bluffing
Or maybe you will
Except
It'll be a quadruple bluff



How is Chro's arms still on fire though? I bet Burnmad has something to do with it.

It's linked to Voltex's everlasting, endless fury.

MY RETRIBUTION IS SWIFT AND VICIOUS, LIKE A WET KOALA STRAPPED TO A METEOR
