And so it begins! After smashing their way through the preliminary voting, characters such as Professor Layton, Robin, Fawful, Porky Minch, and Gordon Freeman all take part in Round 1, alongside many others! None of the matchups this round look too special; none of them seem, at first glance, to contain a character that stands a chance of utterly slamming their opponent (aside from perhaps Luigi, Samus, and GLaDOS).
As usual, I have both a picture bracket AND a text bracket for you all - click the picture to see an even larger version!
The text bracket:
#1 Luigi (Super Mario) vs #16 Zero (Mega Man)
#2 Samus Aran (Metroid) vs #15 John Marston (Red Dead Redemption)
#3 Pit (Kid Icarus) vs #14 Bartz Klauser (Final Fantasy)
#4 Link (The Legend of Zelda) vs #13 Richard Conway (Gunpoint)
#5 Mega Man (Mega Man) vs #12 Captain Falcon (F-Zero)
#6 Star Killer (Star Wars) vs #11 Gordon Freeman (Half-Life)
#7 Agnes Oblige (Bravely Default) vs #10 Robin (Fire Emblem)
#8 Lucas (Mother/Earthbound) vs #9 Professor Layton (Professor Layton)
#1 Hades (Kid Icarus) vs #16 Cyrus (Pokemon)
#2 GLaDOS (Portal) vs #15 Sephiroth (Final Fantasy)
#3 Ganondorf (The Legend of Zelda) vs #14 Comstock (Bioshock)
#4 Ridley (Metroid) vs #13 Grima (Fire Emblem)
#5 Black Shadow (F-Zero) vs #12 Majora (The Legend of Zelda)
#6 Fawful (Super Mario) vs #11 The Gentleman (Monaco)
#7 Porky Minch (Mother/Earthbound) vs #10 Darth Malak (Star Wars)
#8 Master Hand (Super Smash Bros.) vs #9 Ghetsis (Pokemon)
As always, you can vote for one character in each matchup! Voting for this round will be open for two days. Let's get everybody to vote!
My votes are:
#2 Samus Aran
#13 Richard Conway
#5 Mega Man
#11 Gordon Freeman
#7 Agnes Oblige
#9 Professor Layton
#10 Darth Malak
#8 Master Hand
“Still looking at those scraps of paper?”
The Ba-Matoran glanced up from the numerous paper cuttings strewn across the benches of the locker room, all of them listing various details about his opponent’s fighting style and weapon preferences... among other details. Grimacing, he waved to the newcomer, offering to let him in, and his companion accepted it.
“Voltex, you’re worrying about nothing,” the newcomer (a Matoran of Lightning) said. “Nothing is going to go wrong in this fight; you’ve been training for this for months. Heck, you’ve beaten him in this fight before.”
“You don’t know that for sure, Blade.” Voltex said absently, still inspecting the scraps of various papers. “I didn’t do all this once, with Voxumo... and that caused me to miss out on the championship round.”
“You were a rookie back then, though. You’re top of the line now – the best fighter in the league,” Blade said.
“Shadowhawk is top-notch right now as well, and he’s still finding ways to blow through any weaknesses in my style,” Voltex said, pointing towards a clip detailing a duel between himself and Shadowhawk that had taken place three weeks prior.
Blade grimaced before changing the subject. “Have you accepted that offer to join the up and coming news network as a writer?”
“Of course not,” Voltex said, snorting in derision before his eyes fell on a picture of Shadowhawk and his laughter turned nervous.
“But you’re a writer!” Blade exclaimed. “You’d be perfect! Didn’t they want you to write a historical account of Metru-Nui or something?”
“You’re a pretty good writer yourself,” Voltex noted, “but you wouldn’t accept it either.”
Blade mumbled something about not being a so-called retired writer under his breath as another Matoran clad in red armor stepped into the locker room and stopped beside them. Flinching at the unexpected arrival, Voltex knocked several of the papers out of sight by accident. The red Matoran immediately grabbed the nearest bunch of clippings, dumping them all unceremoniously into the garbade by the door. Voltex and Blade said nothing, as the red Matoran spoke.
“Are you ready?”
“Ready as I’ll ever be,” Voltex muttered, as the red Matoran handed him a sealed envelope.
“What is that?” Blade asked.
“Must be an invitation of some sort,” Voltex said, “or I’m the target of an assassination.”
“...should you just leave it, save it for after the fight?” Blade asked, before realizing that Voltex was already opening it. “Voltex! What if it’s to distract you from the fight?!”
“Oops,” the Ba-Matoran said. “Well, it is an invitation, actually. Apparently I’ve been summoned by the White Council to a private discussion once the fight is over. At least I’ll avoid the press afterwards.”
Voltex sighed and flopped onto the bench, tossing his envelope and invitation back to the red Matoran. His gaze met Blade’s and Voltex sighed again. “Should I go?”
“It’s dangerous to refuse the wishes of the Turaga,” Blade said. “They aren’t the most benevolent of rulers.”
“Then it’s settled,” Voltex said, standing and turning to the red Matoran. “Are the fans ready for me?”
“They’re always ready.”
“Good,” Voltex said. “Let’s go – I’ve got a fight to win.”
The scene above is actually a conversation from the prologue of Bionicle Mafia: Book 1 - Isolation between Blade and Voltex that I reworked; both scenes act as Blade's first appearance in their respective epic, although that's more of a coincidence than anything. If you look at them side by side, you'll be able to see what changed and what remained the same.
Anyway... I hope you're looking forward to tomorrow!

For the Villains, I vote for:
-Fawful (Super Mario) x3
My list of must-have 3DS games is slowly expanding (I am interested in many titles that are released, but I usually let my brothers buy them instead). I have so far limited myself to the games that I absolutely need to have for my collection, and while one game - Pokemon X - did still disappoint me, it has saved me money and made my experience with the 3DS better. The only other games I own so far are Bravely Default and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. And now with Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS only a few days away and me awaiting a NA release announcement for both Bravely Second and The Legend of Legacy, I AM starting to notice a bit of a trend.
And somehow, of course, I need to fit in Fire Emblem: Awakening.
The Best Ever 3: Good vs. Evil is officially live!
Sixteen of the greatest heroes in video games, as well as sixteen of the greatest villains, shall go head-to-head with each other, vying for the "Best Ever" crown! As the winner and runner-up of Best Ever 2 respectively, Luigi and Hades are guaranteed the #1 spot in each category!
In the comments below, you may nominate two heroes and two villains. If someone else has already nominated a character that you wish to nominate, you can state that you are adding another nomination; this will help that character's chances with proceeding past the preliminary vote (and indeed, if any receive enough nominations, they may be able to skip the preliminary vote entirely)! So our two categories currently stand as follows:
#1 Luigi (Super Mario)
#2 Hades (Kid Icarus)
I will nominate Mega Man (Mega Man) and Agnes Oblige (Bravely Default) for the Heroes.
I will nominate Fawful (Super Mario) and GLaDOS (Portal) for the Villains.
You may begin nominating down below!!
“I’m certain,” Vinylstep said.
Burnmad looked away, still hesitating - this was second hand information. How did he know he could trust Vinylstep? Or, for that matter, how could he trust Hero? He was no longer sure of anything.
“Voltex trusts us,” the De-Matoran added. “As does Ehks. We both know that they’re the only ones equal to you in power.”
“That doesn’t mean anything.”
“On the contrary, it means a lot,” Vinylstep said drily. “Get it into your head - I’m on your side. Hero was planning to wage war on the White Council as soon as possible. Take a look at the Matoran surrounding you, Burnmad. Several of them are working for the White Council, and they want you and your allies dead. Who supports the White Council? Who would you least suspect?”

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.

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.
