First, some news: September 19 is looking like it's not going to work out for me as far as a release goes. Unfortunately, I'm also really busy next weekend, which means it'll either be released this Friday (as in, just over 24 hours) or on September 26.

I'll finalize my decision tomorrow. In the meantime, I'm opening up four more early spots for the game! Just post your profile in the comments below and I'll approve it.

Member Name: (Your current display name – you will also play the game as a character with this name, to avoid any confusion that might occur).
Weapon: (You are allowed to have one main weapon – it cannot have any special powers).
Power: (You are allowed to have one power – however, should you wish, you may replace this with a second piece of equipment without special powers. You cannot be immune to stage hazards).
Appearance: (Please add a small image, or preferably a link to an image or gallery, or just a small paragraph explaining how you appear to the other players).


1. Blade
2. Dapper (pending profile change)
3. Shadow Blaze
4. Chro

Let's finish this off! Every character announced so far now has a profile!

Pit Profile
Posted Image

First Appearance: Kid Icarus (NES, 1987)

Favourite Appearance: Kid Icarus: Uprising (3DS, 2012)
Party: 1st
Known For: Disappearing for seventeen years, being revived by Brawl, defeating Medusa, saving Palutena, fighting his dark side
Excitement Factor: 5/10 - I get why Pit is here, and I get why people like him; however, I personally don't enjoy playing as him. That said, maybe he'll play differently this time.

KAZAM!!

Mario Profile
Posted Image
Species: Human
Series: Super Mario
First Appearance: Donkey Kong (Arcade, 1981)

Favourite Appearance: Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door (GCN, 2004)
Party: 1st
Known For: Starring in just about every genre of video game possible, being over saturated the past few years, revolutionizing the platforming genre at least three times
Excitement Factor: 6/10 - It's Mario.
Posted Image
An age old battle is fought once more

Wii Fit Trainer Profile
Posted Image

Species: Human
Series: Wii Fit
First Appearance: Wii Fit (Wii, 2008)

Favourite Appearance: N/A, but probably this game
Party: 1st
Known For: Making people fit, exercising, having a really pale complexion, being male and female, and more exercising
Excitement Factor: 7/10 - Wii Fit Trainer is one of those weird additions to the franchise that is just weird enough to work, but also normal enough to not be seen as stupid.

Ta-Da!

New Story

Posted by Voltex , in BZP Library Sep 02 2014 · 54 views

All Hail the King

Written in the POV of a character known as "Agent 64", this story (while not one of my favorites) has many, many interesting things inside. There's a lot of behind the scenes world building, as well as starting the buildup to things that will become more important later on.

Still aiming for the October release date for Book 2.

EW YOU'RE SO OLD (Smash Files 42)

Posted by Voltex , in Smash Files Sep 02 2014 · 77 views

And continuing on with three more profiles!

Samus Profile
Posted Image
Species: Human
Series: Metroid
First Appearance: Metroid (NES, 1987)

Favourite Appearance: Super Metroid (SNES, 1994)
Party: 1st
Known For: Being a bounty hunter, liking Justin Bailey, hunting Space Pirates, exterminating the race of Metroids
Excitement Factor: 8/10 - Another character that I enjoy using on occasion; and, as a member of the Original Twelve, we all knew she'd be back anyway.
Posted Image
Watch the legs! Watch the legs!

Pikachu Profile
Posted Image
Species: Pikachu
Series: Pokemon
First Appearance: Pokemon Red and Blue (Gameboy, 1998)

Favourite Appearance: Pokemon Emerald (GBA, 2005)
Party: 1st
Known For: Being overrated, being an electrical mouse, losing weight as time goes on, maybe being an evolved form of the Pichu from Super Smash Bros. Melee
Excitement Factor: 4/10 - Pikachu is way overrated, and I don't care much for the character beyond "Original Twelve omg".
Posted Image
Nap time for Pikachu. Too many apples.

Fox Profile
Posted Image
Species: Fox
Series: Star Fox
First Appearance: Star Fox (SNES, 1993)

Favourite Appearance: Star Fox (SNES, 1993)
Party: 1st
Known For: Being under-utilized by Nintendo, going dormant, following his father, fighting a giant monkey face
Excitement Factor: 7.5/10 - I like Fox, although his is the rare occasion where I actually prefer Wolf (who is both heavier and slower). That said, it wouldn't be Smash Bros. without Fox.

Poor Fox, forever alone.

LET'S ADD SOME KETCHUP! (Smash Files 41)

Posted by Voltex , in Smash Files Sep 01 2014 · 124 views

I've missed out on making profiles for quite a few characters since the games were announced at E3 last year; so, in the vein of my recent "summer catchup" post, here is another large Smash File detailing four more fighters that I missed along the way, starting with the ones announced during the Smash Bros. Direct.

Charizard Profile
Posted Image
Species: Charizard
Series: Pokemon
First Appearance: Pokemon Red and Blue (Gameboy, 1998)

Favourite Appearance: Pokemon Emerald (GBA, 2005)
Party: 1st
Known For: Being awesome, breathing fire, not being a dragon type, having two mega evolutions, being popular, disobeying Ash because Ash sucks
Excitement Factor: 5/10 - Honestly, kind of meh. I think it's cool that Charizard is in the game, and I get that having Squirtle with Greninja could be seen as an over saturation of water type Pokemon, but... I still liked using Squirtle more than Charizard.
Posted Image
OH GAWD

Zero Suit Samus Profile
Posted Image
Species: Human
Series: Metroid
First Appearance: Metroid: Zero Mission (GBA, 2004)

Favourite Appearance: Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii, 2008)
Party: 1st
Known For: Being another version of Samus in Super Smash Bros. 4, lacking armor, apparently wearing high heels, wearing a skin-tight suit
Excitement Factor: 3/10 - I dislike that Zero Suit Samus is an individual character in this game; mostly because it means we have two versions of Samus on the roster (in addition to two versions of Link), and that means this is a precedent... I do not want to see Dr. Mario being added back into the game. I'm sure there is another video game character out there that could have the exact same play style as Zero Suit Samus instead.

I believe I can fly....

Shiek Profile
Posted Image

Species: ???
Series: The Legend of Zelda
First Appearance: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64, 1998)

Favourite Appearance: Super Smash Bros. Melee (GCN, 2001)
Party: 1st
Known For: Being mysterious, being Zelda, maybe not being Zelda?, being not-actually-male, being female, being a ninja
Excitement Factor: 7/10 - I consider Shiek to be more excusable than Zero Suit Samus on the basis that Shiek could honestly be anyone; and that means I can pretend that Shiek is some random character from the Zelda universe, and not Zelda herself. Whatever.
Posted Image
Just keep sneaking....

Yoshi Profile
Posted Image
Species: Yoshi
Series: Super Mario, Yoshi
First Appearance: Super Mario World (SNES, 1991)

Favourite Appearance: Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door (GCN, 2004)
Party: 1st
Known For: Being a dinosaur, getting trapped in eggs, turning people into eggs, being the best party member in Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
Excitement Factor: 8/10 - Yoshi! Yoshi is one of those characters that I always like to take for a spin every now and then to change things up in between rounds of demolishing my opponents as Young Link or Toon Link. Also, he's a member of the Original Twelve, so he has to be here.

ALL SUMMER LONG! (Smash Files 40)

Posted by Voltex , in Smash Files Aug 30 2014 · 200 views

I missed quite a bit of Super Smash Bros. news while I was away this summer; so, for your enjoyment, here is a MASSIVE Smash File dedicated to profiles for every fighter announcement that I missed.

Metaknight Profile
Posted Image
Species: ???
Series: Kirby
First Appearance: Xenoblade Chronicles (Wii, 2012)

Favourite Appearance: N/A (I have yet to play his game)
Party: 1st
Known For: Being banned from many tournaments, being awesome, being a bad guy, being a hero, always wearing that mask
Excitement Factor: 6/10 - I never really used Metaknight that much and I doubt I will this time around; but it would feel weird if he wasn't in the game.
Posted Image
Being overpowered again, I see.

Lucina Profile
Posted Image
Species: Human
Series: Fire Emblem
First Appearance: Fire Emblem: Awakening (3DS, 2013)

Favourite Appearance: Fire Emblem: Awakening (3DS, 2013)
Party: 1st
Known For: Being a clone, being a surprise, being a spoiler, not being who she says she is, and being a clone
Excitement Factor: 2/10 - WHY SAKURAI, WHY???? WHY MUST SHE BE A CLONE OF MARTH?
Posted Image
At least this picture is cool.

Robin Profile
Posted Image
Species: Human
Series: Fire Emblem
First Appearance: Fire Emblem: Awakening (3DS, 2013)

Favourite Appearance: Fire Emblem: Awakening (3DS, 2013)
Party: 1st
Known For: Being two genders, actually being a unique fighter, being you, saving the world
Excitement Factor: 9/10 - Conversely, I'm very excited to try Robin out! And I'm happy that there are two gender options. Although for this very reason I'm wondering why Lucina couldn't be included with Marth if she's just going to be a clone character.
Posted Image
Magical spells shall help us to rule the world!

Captain Falcon Profile
Posted Image
Species: Human
Series: F-Zero
First Appearance: F-Zero (SNES, 1991)

Favourite Appearance: F-Zero GX (GCN, 2003)
Party: 1st
Known For: Being a bounty hunter who never uses his gun, racing, allowing Mario Kart to borrow his vehicle, and FALCON PAWWWNCH!
Excitement Factor: 8/10 - He is necessary for Smash and I always like to give him a try every now and then. I'll never main Captain Falcon, but he sure is fun to use.

Do I even need to say it?

Announcing BIONIFIGHT ULTIMATE: DRIFT FORCE

Posted by Voltex , in BZPower Aug 29 2014 · 429 views

It all began with Bionifight in 2007. Then came Bionifight 2: Madness Returns! in 2011, followed by Bionifight 3: Madness Returns Again! and Bionifight 4: Hyper Fighting, both also released in that same year. The first three, hosted by Fighty (with help from myself for the latter two) as well as the fourth, hosted just by me, are now referred to as "classic" Bionifight.

In January of this year, Bionifight Ultimate was released. It was a game changer in every respect; Ultimate Weapons replaced Special Weapons (until the latter were added back in later), the round structure was modified, and perhaps the biggest addition of all: fan created content. Bionifight Ultimate took every single issue with the older games and fixed, changed, or removed what it had to. It was, in essence, a reboot of the series; and it is for that reason that this game is titled as a sequel to Bionifight Ultimate without reference to the others.

The earliest concepts for this game had it split into two topics as Bionifight 6 Ultimate and Bionifight 6 Classic, with the former continuing the previous game and the latter bringing back what had not been seen since Bionifight 4: Hyper Fighting. But then I realized that to divide the two would, in fact, be a step backwards - if I was to bring more classic elements back, they needed to be integrated into what I had already set in place. Thus I set about creating my third addition to the Bionifight franchise, and what I came up with was Bionifight Ultimate: Drift Force. It fixes every single issue that was present in Bionifight Ultimate, while retaining what worked and, of course, adding a few new things. You'll notice far less clutter from the start with this game - and that fan created content, which contributed to much of the cluttered and overcomplicated nature of Bionifight Ultimate, has been streamlined.
So here we are - the sixth game in the Bionifight seies as a whole, and the second entry in the Bionifight Ultimate reboot. I hope you enjoy - and if you're wondering why I chose the subtitle of Drift Force... well, if you think back to why I first named Bionifight Ultimate, you might have already guessed. But even if you haven't, all you need to do is look below.

SHULK IS IN! (Smash Files 39)

Posted by Voltex , in Smash Files Aug 29 2014 · 65 views

Shulk Profile
Posted Image
Species: Hom
Series: Xenoblade
First Appearance: Xenoblade Chronicles (Wii, 2012)

Favourite Appearance: N/A (I have yet to play his game)
Party: 1st
Known For: Taking forever to arrive in North America, starring in one of the greatest RPGs of the generation, being a fan favorite
Excitement Factor: 10/10 - If you look back at my most wanted lists from E3 2013, Shulk is on there - the only reason I haven't played Xenoblade Chronicles is because I can't find it... and that sounds like it's about to change.

I can't wait.
