The Member Map Strikes Again

Posted by Lucina , in BZPower Sep 05 2012 · 178 views

First off, some of you may remember that back on July 18th, I posted this topic in Q&A, asking about a member map a staff member had added themselves to. Now, the only reason I noticed it was because it was the first notifcation I'd received since October, although I don't know why. If you know, please tell me. :P

That said, the member map has struck again, for tonight I received my second notification since last October when the staff member changed their place on the map or whatever. Needless to say, I'm curious about a few things:
  • Why are these the only two notifications I've received?
  • What is this member map? (Rhetorical, don't answer lol)
  • Will we ever discover its secrets?
Tue in next time to learn zero answers to these questions!

Also, if you have a recommendation for the next box art of the day, feel free to say so here.

Gradius - #4

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Sep 04 2012 · 131 views

I don't think I've ever played Gradius, but I really really want to when looking at this box art. Obviously the game can't hope to have epicness of this magnitude within, but I can dream that it does.

Besides, those '80s space shooters are all the best things ever anyway. Even when they rock your socks every single attempt (I'm looking at you, Axelay).

Portal - #3

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Sep 01 2012 · 135 views

The third box art of the day is none other than the wonderlicious game Portal, with a very simple piece of art used that defines the game perfectly. The lines give it depth, making it seem as if this figure is falling into the portal below, and we have faded Aperture Science hazard warnings in the background. The one question I have about this is about why they made this figure male when the game stars a female, but it doesn't really matter.

Embarrassing Is When...

Posted by Lucina , in Life Aug 30 2012 · 171 views

You're out doing a paper route, having a great time because it's early evening and just beginning to get dark, the weather is wonderful, and you know you'll be getting rid of the route in two weeks.

Then some eleven or twelve year old girl takes one good look at you, decides you're cute, and decides to follow you for 20 minutes, eventually asking you out to some club or something that you've never heard of after living in this town for three years.

Boxart of the Day #2

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games, Film / Shows Aug 29 2012 · 98 views

The second box art to be given the honor on this blog is none other than Red vs. Blue: The Recollection Boxset, which gives us a nice feel of tone, action and several characters without feeling cluttered. Click the thumbnail to see more.

As a side note, I was actually going to put Far Cry 3 up here, but I'm not entirely certain that the box art for that is appropriate for BZPower.

Boxart of the Day #1

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Aug 28 2012 · 81 views

Been feeling like starting some silly daily blog thing for awhile now, and figured I might as well shove video games and movies in too. That said, the very first box art of the day is...

Posted Image

Mario Party 9.
Although a little over saturated, I really enjoy the Super Mario Galaxy style glow everything has, and I also appreciate how many characters they stuffed into it while keeping the box action packed but not cluttered. Good on you, Nintendo. Now give us a boxart this good for the next Smash Bros.

iBrow On: Voltex

Posted by Lucina , in Life, BZPower Aug 27 2012 · 155 views

I've been asked where "Voltex" came from. What it is, how I came up with it, why do I use it, and so forth. So here's a short blog entry detailing it.

I was recently away for a month at a Leader in Training program at a camp I go to. At this camp, each LIT and staff member is given a special "camp name", one that nobody has ever -or will ever- have. It has to do with legacy, and leaving your mark. That said, "Voltex" is mine.

I am a storyteller, as should be evident by my rank title. I also ran a session on storytelling while I was there, and so they related me to Shakespeare. From Shakespeare they went to Benvolio from Romeo & Juliet, which I shortened to Volio. However, Volio doesn't quite have the ring to it I was looking for.

I worked with some friends, shifting the letters around, and came to Vortex. It wasa perfect, but unfortunately someone had already taken the name. I went cheap and shortened it to Tex, working in a Red vs. Blue reference, but to no avail- Tex was taken as well.

I pondered for a day and then decided to combine Volio and Vortex- that's how I got Voltex.

And there you have it.

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.

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? ? ?

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.
