The Front Page

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in BZP Library, Life Jul 20 2014 · 61 views

I've been using the mobile skin and going directly to my notifications ever since I left, so I totally missed the fact that Bionicle Mafia Book 1: Isolation made it onto the front page.

So that's pretty awesome. I'm hoping to get a week off in august so that I can go home for a bit and work on Book 2 some more before the summer ends; right now I am aiming for an October release.

New Characters in Smash

Returning briefly just to say that I'm very happy with the announcement.

Here I leave

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , Jun 21 2014 · 156 views

I'm leaving today to work for the summer.

As such my activity will be decreasing. I cannot promise that I will be very active at all; Internet can be pretty spotty where I'm going.

Book 2 might be delayed if I am unable to work on it during the summer, but I'd that is the case I'll be throwing myself into finishing it when summer ends.

Book 2 - NEW NARRATOR REVEALED!

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in BZP Library Jun 20 2014 · 90 views

“I was not expecting for you to actually show up,” Xaeraz said casually, glancing over to the hulking form of the Makuta that had entered the room, the door hissing shut and vanishing out of view as it blended with the wall. “I thought you would remain in hiding... or that perhaps you were already long gone.”
 
He held an arm in his lap, and blood dripped from the detached limb if he jostled it enough. The limb had a dual purpose; the first was to help him, and the second was to cover up the specialized weapon so that Makuta Luroka could not see it.
 
First they would talk, and then Luroka would perish.
 
“I would offer you a seat,” Xaeraz continued, “but I doubt you could do anything but crush the chair.”
 
Luroka grunted and stalked forward, knocking the chair aside and halting in front of the small table that sat between the two of them. Xaeraz ignored the way the shadows seemed to grow around the Makuta. Brushing his fingers along the weapon concealed in his lap, Xaeraz spoke again.
 
“You’re awfully quiet today.”
 
“I have never been the most outspoken of Makuta,” Luroka growled, his voice deep, guttural, and ruthlessly cold. “Others speak enough as it is. And often, I have others to speak my words for me.”
 
“That is true,” Xaeraz agreed. “Although Sumiki isn’t here right now....”
 
“He holds no illusions as to your intentions,” Luroka said. “You would kill him before he could set foot in this room.”
 
“And you do not believe I would do the same to you?”
 
“I stand here as proof that you would not do the same to me... and I am a Makuta. You have no hope of overpowering me. My cooperation with you thus far has been entirely of my own accord, and it shall remain that way.”
 
Deciding to leave that particular issue of loyalty alone for the moment, Xaeraz pushed on. “You know, I thought I could trust you and Sumiki. I thought you were working for me... or at least with me. But you broke the rules of my little game... you refused to follow my agenda... and to me that suggests that you both have an agenda of your own.”
 
The Makuta regarded him silently, and under the table Xaeraz clenched his fists to avoid allowing his anger to show on his face.
 
“I take it,” the Fe-Matoran said, “that your silence means I was not the only one you were working with. Who else has your attentions? Please, enlighten me – after all, I will surely not be walking away from this meeting.”
 
“Your cause has long been a lost one,” Luroka said. “I know of your bloodlust and what brought it forth. I understand the depths of your madness perhaps even more clearly than those who afflicted it upon you, for it was I who gave them the idea in the first place."
 
----
 
Yes, Xaeraz is one of the narrators of Bionicle Mafia Book 2: Extraction, joining Voltex and three (four?) others. 
 
Who else will share their point of view?

E3: BEAUTIFUL Box Art (Smash Files 38)

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in Smash Files Jun 15 2014 · 134 views

Look at this stuff

I like them both a lot, but I do have a few complaints:
 
-Brawl had eleven characters on the cover (I think?). Smash 3DS has eleven characters on the cover. Smash Wii U has... ten. Considering their paired nature, this really bugs me. If anything, the Wii U version should showcase more characters, but I think they should just be equal in count.
-Fox and Luigi both got screwed over times two.
 
Things I like enough to make note of:
 
-Samus being front and center of the Wii U box art instead of Mario or Link; it's very refreshing.
-Villager gets on both!
-Wii Fit Trainer's art on the cover is her official art, rather than being a special render just for the box art. I think it's funny that the creators were just lazy with one character.
 
Anyway, that concludes this "E3 2014" series of posts. I do really like the box art for both, although I think Brawl still has the best cover art of the series.

E3: Pac-Man sucks (Smash Files 37)

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in Smash Files Jun 13 2014 · 199 views

E3 2014 - Pac-Man Profile
Posted Image
Species: ???
Series: Pac-Man
First Appearance: Pac-Man (Arcade, 1980)

Favourite Appearance: Any arcade-style Pac-Man game
Party: 3rd
Known For: Revolutionizing gaming, not transferring to 3D well, being a terrible new addition to Smash.
Excitement Factor: 2/10 - I think we all knew (or suspected) that Pac-Man would end up in the game when it was announced that Namco was assisting in development. That does not mean that I like it, or that I even wanted it. I would take Agnes Oblige instead of this stupid person any day.

E3: What the heck is this? (Smash Files 36)

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in Smash Files Jun 12 2014 · 159 views

E3 2014 - Amiibo  
That is "Amiibo"... or "amiibo". Does it matter? 
Nintendo, as announced a few days ago at E3, is finally following in the footsteps of Activision - releasing toys that can be used as characters in-game. To boot, the first series of figures are launching alongside Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and I can finally begin collecting Nintendo figures for mere display purposes (it's gonna be an awesome display though I swear).
 
Honestly for me, being able to use these things in various games is just a bonus. Speaking of using them in games, Nintendo has announced that Mario Kart 8 will be making use of the Amiibo figures as well. I can only imagine how the heck it'll work in that game though.
 
Below is an image of (I believe) all of the figures that will be included in the first series. The lack of Luigi here upsets me.

E3: THE POWER OF LIGHT COMPELS YOU! (Smash Files 35)

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in Smash Files Jun 11 2014 · 112 views

E3 2014 - Palutena Profile
Posted Image
Species: Goddess
Series: Kid Icarus
First Appearance: Kid Icarus (NES, 1986)

Favourite Appearance: Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii, 2008)
Party: 1st 
Known For: Ruling Skyworld, being the goddess of Light, giving Pit the power of flight

Excitement Factor: 7/10 - Honestly, I would be more excited to play as here if it weren't for the fact that this has almost assuredly guaranteed that the Eggplant Wizard will not be added to the roster. And that, my friends, is the saddest thing of all (because turning opponents into eggplants as a final smash would be totally awesome).

Silly Marth! Palutena is no damsel that needs saving! 
 
Stay tuned tomorrow for E3 2014 Part 3!
