Tell Me What I've Missed

Posted by LewaLew , Feb 17 2018 · 451 views

On a whim, I turned up today wondering what became of this old place. Is it better? Worse? The same? More bitter or less? BIONICLE-focused or not?

Also, I kind of regret not having been here to run the BaseBlog in The Year. We did it! The Cubbies finally won! Anyone can have a good century!

EDIT: Wow. Some cursory googling reveals some pretty insane stuff happened here. I'm glad I was gone when people started to go bonkers. It's sad that I've never been able to come back to the way I remember BZP. Or maybe it was never that way to begin with. I don't know. But it is disappointing to see how many people are gone or damaged. This was such a fun place. And I'm sorry for the part that I had in encouraging the chaos, even when I thought I might help to subdue it.


Corrin and Bayonetta

Posted by LewaLew , Dec 15 2015 · 542 views

I don't really understand why people are surprised to see that Bayonetta won the ballot. I can understand if you're surprised that Nintendo would choose her as a "realizable character," given that her game is very much ​not ​family-friendly, but if you didn't see the online support for her, you and I weren't looking at the same posts and comments on social media.

That said, I don't like Bayonetta, didn't want her, and am disappointed that she won. But I don't complain, because it's not like I have to buy her or anything.

Corrin, on the other hand, I'm very happy for. I'm not a fan of the excess of FE characters, but I'm not going to blame Corrin for that when the real problem is two Marth clones (one altered a little, but I don't think Roy's worth the changes made). Corrin, like Robin, is the sort of FE character that should be in Smash.

(And really, when you realize that Lucina is really just a skin that takes up a space on the character select screen, you should realize that Roy's the only one that's excessive, and he's optional anyway.)

Anyhow, I suppose that'll be six more dollars I spend on Fire Emblem Fates-related content in February.

(Oh, and I guess Chrom must be feeling like post-Brawl, pre-Sm4sh Awkward Zombie Roy right now.)


SMT x FE Villainy

Posted by LewaLew , Dec 15 2015 · 417 views

I'm not planning on playing Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem (I'm spending too much money on FE as it is), but I cannot say that I am pleased to find that Lon'qu is a villain. Of course, since it seems that the FE characters are just weird spectres harnessed by the SMT characters, I suppose that it may not be Lon'qu himself that is a villain, just his user. (I haven't done too much research into the game anyway.)

Maybe before the end of the game, Evil Lon'qu may change sides. Ah, well.


Nintendo Direct

Posted by LewaLew , Nov 12 2015 · 655 views

Finally, a release date for Fire Emblem Fates! I only just picked up the series this past summer (I played Awakening, Blazing Blade, Sacred Stones, Radiant Dawn, and Shadow Dragon), but I already love it. Which is weird, because I normally don't enjoy RPGs that much. Really the only ones I've tried and liked are the Fire Emblem and Mario & Luigi series. Anyhow, I have preordered my special edition, so now the only thing left to do is to figure out which of the three paths to choose. I've leaned Conquest ever since Xander first appeared, but we'll have to wait and see. And I suppose Revelation is also a possibility, but I'd rather play Conquest and Birthright first.

As for the other stuff, Twilight Princess HD is interesting, but I don't care too much because 1) I've already set aside my video game money for Fates, and 2) I can still borrow my library's Wii copy and play it. Wind Waker HD made sense, since no version of Wind Waker worked on the Wii U before then. I'm kind of indifferent about it. I like Twilight Princess, but it's not my favorite, and I don't care for how so many Zelda fans hail it as being "realistic" when it's really just the animesque Ocarina of Time style with muddier colors. Even so, I probably will try to get it eventually, but if I get a Zelda remake anytime soon, it'll be Majora's Mask 3D, since it's my favorite Zelda.

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam looks just as fun as Mario & Luigi games usually are. I'm sure the Paper Mario fans are disappointed that it takes so few gameplay elements from the Paper Mario series. Maybe there'll be a Paper Mario & Luigi eventually. Personally, I was hoping that the next Mario & Luigi game would feature Wario and Waluigi as the guest protagonists/antagonists, or maybe Peach and Daisy (Mario & Luigi: Double Date?). Anyhow, I still love Mario & Luigi games. I hope this one lives up to my favorite, Bowser's Inside Story.

I know nothing about Final Fantasy VII, so I don't really care about Cloud. I suppose this means that Magnus from Kid Icarus: Uprising has even less of a shot than he did before. Which I don't mind, but he's still the first thing that came to mind when I saw Cloud's sword.

I'm not really into Star Fox or Xenoblade Chronicles, so Star Fox Zero and Xenoblade Chronicles X don't really catch my interest. (Besides, I'm outta money.) Neither does much of the other stuff. Even so, with plenty of Zelda, Fire Emblem, and Mario & Luigi, this was one of my favorite directs yet.


The DeLorean Has Crashed

Posted by LewaLew , in Baseball Oct 21 2015 · 518 views

I guess the Cubs never have believed in soft landings.

Nevertheless, they far exceeded my expectations this year. Doesn't make it hurt less, though.


Fire Emblem Names

Posted by LewaLew , in BZPower Oct 21 2015 · 471 views

I had forgotten that someone had the name "Lucina" here until I saw that blog directly above mine in the list.

And now I wish that there were some name change fad where everybody was a Fire Emblem character. But then I'd be second-guessing my choice of Lon'qu, when I could have also chosen Hector, Gregor, or Donnel.

Nah, I would have just chosen Lon'qu anyway.


"Quick, Marty, to the DeLorean!"

Posted by LewaLew , in Baseball Oct 20 2015 · 477 views

"We've mistakenly altered the space-time continuum to prevent the Cubs from reaching the World Series!"

"What, Doc?"

"No time to explain!"

Doc and Marty better fix this. When I wake up tomorrow, I expect the Cubs to be up at least 2-1 in the series.

And I want my hoverboard too, but first things first.


So, the Cubbies

Posted by LewaLew , in BZPower, Baseball Oct 20 2015 · 272 views

They're making me really happy and frustrated at the same time.

Oh, and I'm poking around here again for the next few days.

And I changed my name to Lon'qu, because he's a total boss.


And now the visit is over!

It was nice dropping in for the BIONICLE celebration party, but now I've got midterms to worry about. So long again, folks.


New Blog Title

Posted by LewaLew , in BZPower Oct 13 2014 · 434 views

I decided to go ahead and dull down my blog. It's not like I'm around much anymore to talk about baseball. This is the most activity I've had in a long time, thanks to BIONICLE's return.

Howdy Folks!

I'm LewaLew, former BZPower RK, former Reporter, and former unofficial baseball blogger. Once, this blog served as the home of my primarily baseball-related musings. Now that I'm in college, I have little time for baseball and BZPower, so it sits here idle except for an occasional visit on my part. Please enjoy or cringe at what you read from my past, and if you'd like, go ahead and comment in the favorite baseball teams entry so that the next time a blue moon rolls around and I visit, I can add you to that content block.

Play Well!

Old Welcome Block

For those of you who don't know (which would mean everyone but Aho-Chan and Sumiki) the BaseBlog is beyond a blog, this is beyond baseball it's a blog that focuses on the great American sport of baseball. The idea of a baseball themed blog has actually been in the works by me ever since Super Bowl XLIV, when Aho-Chan posted a blog entry asking if anyone besides himself didn't care for the Super Bowl, to which I suddenly got the idea of a baseball-themed blog so I could talk about my favorite sport without waiting for someone else to post in the Official Baseball Topic in the Completely Off Topic forum.

Play Ball, folks.
