Through the Eyes of Madness


Nintendo and Pikmin

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Jun 20 2013 · 200 views

I heard somewhere that Nintendo makes Pikmin just for fun, not for profit, and wouldn't care if it makes a loss on the series. Can anyone here confirm if that's true?


We've Moved!

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , in Bring Back Bionicle Club May 05 2013 · 134 views

Due to issues with the "free" web host provider now charging excessive amounts of money to keep the website running, apparently due to the site getting a large amount of unique visitors, we have had to move the website to a new host, and therefore change its domain.

As part of the move, I have also given the site a minor overhaul. Its banner has been updated, the unused chatroom removed, and other parts of the website tidied up.

In addition, I have added a large number of games to the Games page. Unfortunately, the promised Mata Nui Online Game 2 is not among them. The version I have been given crashes when trying to load the starting room, and so cannot be run. If someone else could find a version that works in a browser window, please contact me.
As far as I'm aware, I still can't advertise the site here because elements other than the chatroom made it illegal to do so. You will have to seek out other branches to find the new site.


New PB in Pokémon Tournaments

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , May 04 2013 · 68 views
Great day today. Made a personal best performance in today's charity Pokémon tournament, coming third! I won a Pokémon Black & White shirt that features silhouettes of Reshiram and Zekrom.
I have a photo of me wearing it, but idk if I'm allowed to post it.


Winged Pikmin

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Apr 17 2013 · 152 views

Winged Pikmin I only just found out about the revelations for the new Winged Pikmin in Pikmin 3, announced in last night's Nintendo Direct.

I LOVE THEM! Aside from being cute, they are also versatile, and they make my author-like imagination go wild! I sincerely hope they make small plushes of these like they did with the first 5 Pikmin species.

For those who missed it, this is what winged Pikmin can do:
  • They can fly, meaning they are not inhibited by land hazards such as water.
  • When working with other winged Pikmin and no other species, they can carry objects through the air, going over obstacles instead of around them. Whether they can carry them up cliffs is unknown, but likely.
  • It appears they are strong against flying foes, such as the horribly-annoying Swooping Snitchbug.

Issues regarding the club's website

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , in Bring Back Bionicle Club, Uncategorized Apr 02 2013 · 223 views
Our club's official website has recently reached a big milestone: 1,500 unique visitors in a single month! Because of this, our host, Free Hosting Cloud, has started to charge me money to keep the website online.
Although I have attempted to move the site to another host, none that I found have the capacity to hold our expanding website, which is currently in the process of adding a number of large games that once graced Bionicle's website. Because of this, I have found no alternative but to start paying for the website's upkeep.
As a result, I am planning to upgrade the website, which will save money in the long run, and give the site a new domain with a shorter address. Please stay tuned for updates.
A big thank you to everyone who has helped the club reach the site's milestone of 1,500 unique monthly visitors. Even if the milestone caused all this drama, it means the club is gaining momentum.

I'm not going to name names, but are you sure the member who made the thread mentioned in this entry's title wasn't hacked?
I wanted to ask the member himself, but he appears to have been suspended, and I cannot access his page at all.


An Important Announcement Regarding Ninjago

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Feb 10 2013 · 302 views

I've heard word that Ninjago will be discontinued by the end of this year, and replaced by something that will "make Ninjago fans wish it was discontinued sooner". Can anyone confirm/deny this?


Pokémon X and Pokémon Y

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Jan 08 2013 · 289 views
Because every Pokémon fan knew there'd be huge reception.
OK, my opinions on this new game are:
1) THAT WAS QUICK! A new generation only two years after the release of the previous!
2) This is the first generation EVER where the first revealed Pokémon are its starters!
3) I believe Pokémon sprites as we know them are no more. There is WAY too much animation now!
5) on the topic of Machop's availability, it may be a version exclusive, whose exclusive partner is Timburr.


What do you give the birthday boy who has everything?

$90 AUD and a drawing pad.
That's what I got for my birthday today. I may amend this post with more if I get anything else.


Celebrity blood

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Dec 29 2012 · 157 views

I've just been thinking about my celebrity grandparents (for lack of a better word), and realised I have a bit of each's blood in my veins:

My grandmother, Margaret "Peg" Hardy, was a poet. Every so often I rhyme my words, even by coincidence, and have been doing that even more since she passed away almost two years ago.

My great aunty, Mary Hardy, was a comedian. Though I'm not the funniest person around, I am very quick with witty jokes.

My great uncle, Frank Hardy, was an author. He wrote Power Without Glory. I too have natural skill as an author, as does my second cousin, author Marieke Hardy.

It's time for my annual World VGC rant

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Dec 07 2012 · 217 views
I have just heard from a highly-respected Pokémon forum that once again, Australia has been banned from participating from next year's Video Game World Championships. Once again, Australia has failed to prove themselves worthy of matching skills with the rest of the world.
Are we not good enough? Is our Government that pathetic? Are we as a people too criminal? What exactly did Australian Pokémon fans, as a group, ALL do wrong to deserve being banned?
Of course, we CAN participate if we buy an expensive plane ticket to a country that hadn't been banned, and participate with them, so if you're devoted enough, and not studying or on benefits, you could attend worlds and protest against the unfair go Australians are getting.


Getting Bionicle games on my website?

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , in Uncategorized, Bring Back Bionicle Club Nov 21 2012 · 260 views
I'd like to add some official Bionicle flash games to my website, such as the MNOLG, the Command Toa Mahri games and the Phantoka minigames. How might I go about doing this?

Sorry if this is in the wrong place.


I'm not 100% sure, but...

...I think the login issue wih the Archives has been solved!

It may be old news, but I only noticed when I clicked on the new link on the new forum's home page. Whether or not that new addition solved the problem, I don't know, but it still looks like it has been solved, because I can access the archives without getting logged off!

Thank you staff for fixing it! :D


That Awkward Moment...

...when you submit something to the news and then discover you got a detail wrong.

And THEN they post it on the front page with the wrong info!

That's actually what happened with the Purdue Pete news story. I told BZP the other day it reached 10,000 supporters in 36 hours, when in actual fact it took 9 days! Either way it was bloody quick!

I'm sorry I misled everyone with my mistake. :(


Victorian Railways

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Oct 09 2012 · 216 views
trains, dA Gallery
So I've started a new series of stories on my [Removed. Please do not mention sites with forums.-Nukaya], called Victorian Railways. It's a fact-based fiction about the railways of regional Victoria, and the trains that run on them, set from 1986, eventually leading up to now.

Each story will be told from the point of view of the trains themselves. Some stories will even be about real-life events.

The first episode has been published, and a second is in progress now.


Jazz Jackrabbit in Lego Land

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Sep 27 2012 · 176 views

It is over 15 years old, but I figured this might interest people anyway.

In the olden days, computer game companies used to release various holiday versions of their games. Jazz Jackrabbit, for instance, had two Christmas editions: one in 1994 and one in 1995.

The 1995 version had two planets. The first was called Candion, which appeared to be a world full of candy, lollies and icing sugar. The second should interest people here quite a bit: Bloxonious, which was a world made from LEGO BRICKS!

Unconvinced? See for yourself!

A Haiku best describes my latest job application

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Sep 09 2012 · 162 views
The website you seek
Cannot be located, but
countless more exist.

It's a Haiku I learned in high school, which I have interpreted to mean "The way you want to do something can't always be done, but there are other ways to do it."

In this case, it's for a job at V/Line. I recently applied to become a fill-in Customer Communications Officer for them. The position won't get me on a V/Line train, but it nonetheless gets me a job.

V/Line is a very flexible company that approves of people moving between jobs in the business, so if I play my cards right I might be able to become a conductor (even if it'll pay less), or better, a shunter. If I play my cards PERFECTLY, I could even be a conductor and a Customer Communications Officer at the same time!

Applications close Wednesday afternoon. Wish me luck!
