Interest Level?

Posted by Tex , in BZP Library Jan 20 2014 · 227 views

Just thought I'd try and gauge interest here before I actually post something that nobody will read; is there anyone that would be interested in reading an Epic about the lives of Bionicle & Hero Factory sets in the real world?
 
I plan to have them facing realistic scenarios, so that could include being lost, being left behind on a trip, losing pieces, etc. No prior reading or knowledge would be necessary, as it's designed to be standalone.

THE BZPOWER OSCARS

Posted by Tex , in Film / Shows Jan 19 2014 · 852 views

This is gonna be tough to pull off - attempting to decide BZPower's favorite video game character and BZPower's favorite movies on the same blog.
 
I'll make do.
 
With the announcement of the nominees for the 86th Academy Awards, I figured, why not? We'll make some of our own!
 
(If you'd like to help the Voltex Association with designing a trophy, please do so).
 
This is going to be voted on entirely by you guys (and me because I am one of you) - so here's the deal. First, we need nominations for the nominations! Which means that, for each category, you can submit one option - and don't worry about multi-nominations; if Tom Hanks is selected for his role in Captain Phillips and Saving Mr. Banks, that is totally okay. If someone has already nominated your choice, just note that you are repeating the suggestion.
 
Now we move onto the categories that you can vote for.
 
 
Best Film (for simplicity's sake, consider foreign language films acceptable here, as well as documentaries)
Best Animated Film
Best Short Film (animated or live-action)
Best Actor 
Best Actress
Best Supporting Actor
Best Supporting Actress
Best Director
Best Soundtrack/Score
Best Original Song
Best Writing (adapted or original)
 
 
LET THE VOTING BEGIN!
Also, before you get mad at anybody who votes... remember that the chances of everyone seeing every film are 0.
 
I suppose I'll vote eventually. My choices are probably going to be picked fairly quickly regardless.

Thank you very much to Jedi Master J for the Translucent Miru, as well as the bonus LEGO Gift Card and Robot Minifigure (which shall join Marilyn Monroe as the second in my collection). Also pictured here, since they deserve the honor, are the official soundtrack to The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask that I got as a Platinum Reward for Club Nintendo, and my Darth Duck mug. Because it's Darth Duck people.

Bionifight Ultimate: FAN CREATED CONTENT

Posted by Tex , in BZPower Jan 16 2014 · 212 views

Yes, you read that correctly – fan created content. This series is all about you folks, the players; and what better way to continue that trend (along with expanding and perfecting it) than to introduce this? I had it in a very vague form during Bionifight 4, where I took suggestions for new modifiers, game types, and battle arenas. However, it was rare and never on a larger scale. I’m hoping we can change that.
 
This is my challenge to you – organise yourselves. Do you have some ideas you’d like to see implemented? Sorry, I won’t listen – not until you have gathered two or more players to help you develop a LARGER update to the game. I’m talking new arenas, new power ups, new game types, and any other additions you feel could fit into the game. Here are the steps you’ll need to go through:
 
1 – Have an idea (obviously).
2 – Get into contact with at least two other players to discuss ideas, improve ideas, and flesh all of those ideas out.
3 – Design stuff; create arenas, power ups, game types, other things, what have you – I will note that I’m more likely to agree to your ideas if you can tie them all into a singular “theme”.
4 – Make sure that each creation is named, and credited to whoever came up with the original idea for that item/thing in the first place.
5 – Get some sort of a banner created for your update; preferably at least as large as 400x200.
6 – Bring it to me. This should be done by whoever first organised the project sending me a pm, laying out your Fan Created Update in an orderly fashion. I’ll ask questions about things I don’t quite get; I’ll discuss with the group as a whole the project, and we’ll decide what goes into the game and what doesn’t. I make no promises about what will make it into the game, but I don’t think we should have too many problems.

Bionifight Ultimate: Arenas!

Posted by Tex , in BZPower Jan 15 2014 · 264 views

1 - Ko-Wahi – A region of snow, where the icy surfaces make maintaining balance difficult and the area is so cold that attacks do half as much damage as usual and each player loses 1 health with each new day.
2 - Coliseum – The default arena with no major modifiers, aside from the floor that can change heights from normal to high and back down even lower.
 
3 - Archives – A collection of underground caverns and tunnels filled with roaming beasts and enemies, where attacks that are too powerful could bury you alive.
 
Those are just three of the arenas that you'll be fighting in this time around. 
 
I'm also announcing Unlockables officially here and now - I've already showcased one unlockable to you all (was it a game type, a power up, or an arena?), but the methods to unlock these secrets will be revealed at the game's release.
 
Stay tuned for tomorrow - I have what might be the biggest announcement yet for you all before the game releases.

2000 Comments

Back when my blog hit 1000 comments, I dedicated the next entry to Sumiki, who go the 1000th comment.
 
...unfortunately, I was the one to get the 2000th comment. Talk about boring. You mssed it by that much, JiMing.

Bionifight Ultimate: Power Ups

Posted by Tex , in BZPower Jan 14 2014 · 192 views

An entirely brand new addition to the series, to help offset the removal of the Round Modifiers and the slimming of character powers are Power Ups. Here are a few just for show;
 
Health Kit – This power up gives the user 5 health points; useful if you’re in a bit of a snag.
 
Fire Bomb – This power up gives the user a chance to deal 3 points of damage to a single opponent instantly.
 
Rhotuka Spinner – This power up allows the user to mutate an opponent for five of the oppponent’s posts into a Rahi of the user’s choosing.
 
Krana – This power up allows the user to put an opponent under their control for five of the opponent’s posts; the opponent cannot attack the user during this time.

Early Bird Signups (NO spots left!)

Posted by Tex , in BZPower Jan 13 2014 · 586 views

So as promised, I've decided to open up six player slots for BIONIFIGHT ULTIMATE early. All you need to do is fill out a profile and post it in the comments here; I will then either approve it (most likely) or ask you to modify something (unlikely).
 
You'll automatically be given a spot on the list for the first three rounds, but I will ask that you copy/paste your profile into the game topic itself when the time gomes.
 
There will still be 8-10 open slots available when the game releases.
 
Early Bird Slots (all approved):
1. Ehks 
2. Voxumo 
3. JiMing 
4. Zakaro
5. Unit#phntk#1
6. Punished Snake

THE BEST EVER 3

Posted by Tex , in Video Games Jan 13 2014 · 616 views

Posted Image
 
Welcome to The Best Ever 3: Good vs. Evil! Inspired by the final two rounds of the previous tournament, the sides of light and darkness will go head to head in this third competition after Samus and Luigi won the first and second tournaments respectively.
 
Here's how it's gonna work: 16 heroes, 16 villains. The final two will consist of the mightiest hero facing off against the strongest villain, to determine which side will achieve ultimate victory. As the winner and runner-up of the last tournament, Luigi is guaranteed Spot #1 in the Heroes list and Hades is guaranteed #1 on the Villains list.
 
All nominations are welcome, and perhaps if arguments are good enough we might see the odd Bowser or King Dedede character slip into the Heroes list! Who knows? You can nominate two heroes and two villains in this post. If someone has already nominated a character, you may give that character another nomination (which will boost their chances of passing the preliminary voting). All we ask is that if you are nominating a character again, please state that. 
 
You may begin!
 
Heroes
1. Luigi (Super Mario)
 
Villains
1. Hades (Kid Icarus)
 
 
For the heroes, I nominate Mega Man (Mega Man) and Rayman (Rayman)
 
For the villains, I nominate Fawful (Mario & Luigi) and King Dedede (Kirby)






just for fun
