Belated: Look like my vacation is…over

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Video Games, Real Life Jul 08 2015 · 116 views

Hey, folks. It been awhile since I wrote an entry here, so I thought I pop in today and give you all an update.

As the title states though, I actually meant to post this sooner, but I kind of got sidetracked with other stuff on Sunday. That was mostly because I was reorganizing the basement as we got a new shelving unit on Saturday…

I would take some pictures to show you how it looks, but basement is still a bit of a mess as I didn’t have a whole lot time to look through some old junk, ect.

But anyway, I think I am getting a bit ahead of myself here. I mean that was the end of my vacation week, after all. Let’s rewind a bit.

First though, I think I’ll explain why I was off last week. So this week and last week are what my employer calls shutdown weeks, which are basically their recommended time to take your vacation time and they serve as maintenance weeks since they do a lot of cleaning in the shop during these weeks.

Most people at my work are entitled to at least two weeks vacation (You also don’t have to take your vacation time during shutdown weeks.). Although it varies depending on how long you have been there. For me personally, I am only entitled to two weeks vacation (And well, I won’t be getting three weeks until four years from now.).

Now usually I only take one week off (And it is usually the first shutdown week, which is the week of July 4th) as it means my second week check is basically a bonus check as I basically get paid twice for a single week, which it is kind of nice.

Of course, I am kind of breaking that tradition as I will be taking that second week to go down to BrickFair VA, so no bonus week paycheck this year. But well, hopefully BrickFair will be worth giving up that extra check.

Alright, that’s enough explaining. Let’s get back on topic, shall we? As you already know, I was off from work last week, so the question now is: What did I do during my week break?

Honestly not a whole lot really. I did managed to do at least some of my goals for the week such as renew my photo ID (It was going expired at the end of the month), get a hair cut, and confirmed my reservation at Holiday Inn (Although admittedly I kind have a nagging feeling that they create a new reservation rather than update the one that BrickFair VA website place… I am going to have see about calling them back this weekend.).

The only goals that I didn’t meet last week were my BZPower related ones really, which were getting my MOCs ready to ship, checking out Bionicle Generation 2 story, and working on a secret project.

Well, in the case of the secret project, I have confirmed that one of things involved with it can’t be done, so that’s stinks. I’ll just have to make due with what I have. Hopefully you folks will like it when you see it.

As for MOCs goal, I think I might need your folks’ advice on what to send. Here are some pictures of MOCs that I am considering sending. Although I should note that I will probably will make some changes to a few of MOCs as some of them still have WIP elements.

I am curious though to hear any of your thoughts on them. So if you have any thoughts, feel free to share them. Thanks in advance, if you do.

Beside that stuff, I managed to completed a couple of video games from my Steam library last week. Those games were Her Story & Batman: Arkham Asylum. I thought they both were pretty interesting, especially Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Like once I started playing it, I just couldn't stop. I spent a good amount of three days exploring the Asylum and trying to find everything I could in the game (I managed to get all Riddler trophies.).

So yeah, I rather liked the game and I look forward to checking out Batman: Arkham City at some point. Hopefully it will be just as fun as Arkham Asylum was (Although I imagine finding all Riddler trophies will be quite a task in it considering City looks more open world and stuff.).

Uh... That's about it for my vacation last week. Oh, wait... I didn't mention that I checked out my first gaming convention on June 27th. Really I would go on about that here, but I already ramble enough about it on my Tumblr, so I'll spare you the details as I doubt you will want to read the wall of text recap that I wrote there.

But yeah, I had a fun day at that convention with some friends (It is called, "Too Many Games" Con for those wondering.) and I got to see Jurassic World later (I ended up seeing it twice during my vacation since my sister wanted to see it too.). Personally I liked Jurassic World for what it was. I won't say it was a perfect film, but it certainly was entertaining and had its moments. *shrugs*

Alright, that's enough from me for today. I hope you all have a great day and thank you for taking the time to read this. Talk to you later, BZPers.

E3 Rambling

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Video Games, Random Jun 18 2015 · 12 views

Hey, folks. I thought I would take the opportunity today to share some of my thoughts on this year’s E3.

Bethesda - Overview

So first up is Bethesda since they were the first conference, I saw this year.

Now I got to be honest I am not really that familiar with Bethesda. I mean I hadn’t play any of their games before (Although I do “own” Dishonored & Skyrim on Steam. I just hadn’t gotten around to playing either of those game.), so I am not sure really how to judge their conference as I had no expectations for it.

Therefore, I would probably take my thoughts here as a grain of salt really. Not that I really had a problem with conference. I actually thought they did pretty well in terms of coverage for the games.

Although personally I can’t say I care for some of their games (Such as Doom & The Elder Scrolls: Legends). Really the only games from the event that interested me were Dishonored 2 and Fallout 4.

I care about Dishonored 2 mostly because while I have not play the first game yet, I am familiar with the game since I did watch a Let’s Play of it (By Youtuber, Jesse Cox, for those wondering.), so I am glad to hear there will be another game in that universe. And well, the trailer was pretty awesome and shown off Emily as a playable character.

As for Fallout 4, I mostly care abut it due to high levels customization shown off in the trailer and because it looks like it could be fun. *shrugs* I admit I am not completely sold it since it does feel kind weird jumping into a series at fourth installment. Hopefully it will be easy to get into, if I do consider getting it in the future.

Alright, that's all I have say on Bethesda conference. Oh, and feel free to suggest some Bethesda PC games to me since like I say I hadn't play any games from them before, so I am interested to hear if there are any that I should check out. Thanks in advance.

Microsoft - Overview

Next up is Microsoft conference and I'll admit I am not fan of Microsoft really. It mostly because they kind of "killed" Rare Studios. So with that biased in mind, I would say their conference was alright.

They actually showcase some interesting indie stuff. But outside of that, I was kind bored with their presentation, especially when they were talking about Halo or that car game. XD

Uh, the games that interested me (if I had an Xbox One) were the following:
- ReCore
- Beyond Eyes (Hoping for PC release)
- Tacoma (Again, hoping for PC release)
- Cuphead
- Rare Replay
- Sea of Thieves

Outside of that, the HoloLens presentation was kind cool. I am interested to see what might come from that technology.

Another cool thing that they announced the Xbox One will now be backward compatibility (It feel a bit late) with Xbox 360. I mean it doesn't interest me personally as I own neither system, but it was a nice thing for Microsoft to do.

Alright, that's all I have say about Microsoft.

Electronic Art & Ubisoft - Overview

I hadn't watched either of these two, so I can't really comment on how they did or if there was any games that I was interested in. Uh, I don't feel like watching either of them right now. XD

So I guess that sums up my thoughts on them pretty well. Uh, I might update this later with some thoughts. In the meantime, you are welcome to share what you thought was great about those conferences here.

Sony - Overview

Okay, it is time for thoughts on Sony conference. Now unlike Microsoft, I like Sony. Mostly because they seem to have a lot more variety when it comes to games (That and well, the Kingdom Hearts series is primarily on their systems. XD).

Although I should note that I don't own a PS4 and I have no intention of getting one till at Kingdom Hearts III has been released, assuming it actually end up on PS4. =P

But anyway, enough about my bias, personally I thought Sony did the best out of these E3 conferences. Like I really felt like they hit it out of park with these cool titles: The Last Guardian, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and No Man's Sky.

They also announce stuff like a remake for FFVII and a sequel to an old Sega game, Shenmue III. Personally I am not too excited about those as I am not too familiar with either series, but it was still a cool announcement and I am sure the fans of both series are happy.

They shown some footage from Batman: Arkham Knight, which reminds me that I should check that series out sometime. I mean it has my favorite Batman (Kevin Conroy) in it and looks interesting. So yeah, I might have check that out sometime.

I actually got Batman: Arkham City from a friend recently on Steam (Thanks again, Makuta Luroka.). Although I should probably play the series in order, so I'll have to see about getting Arkham Asylum.

One last thing of interest from Sony Conference was Uncharted 4. I am not really familiar with the series, but it looks might be kind interesting.

Hm...Speaking of Uncharted series, is the series worth checking out? I do have PS3, so if the previous games are on there, I guess I could play them sometime in the future, maybe.

That's all I have say about Sony Conference.

Nintendo - Overview

Its Nintendo time!

I don't think I need to explain my bias for Nintendo since I think it is pretty obvious that they are my favorite of three major console companies. And well, I have played Nintendo products for majority of my life. So yeah, I definitely I am bias about them.

That being said, I thought this year's E3 announcements were kind lackluster and to be honest, I was kind expecting that after they announced that Zelda U has been delayed and wouldn't be show off at E3 this year (I understood the reason for delay and all, but it would been nice to have seen more of development at least.).

I mean not that I am saying they needed a Zelda title to make this E3 awesome or something. I just mean that based on previous Directs from this year, it didn’t feel like they had a lot going on when it comes major titles, outside of Xenoblade Chronicles X and Star Fox (I didn’t include Yarn Yoshi in this list because I don’t think it will be system seller for Wii U.). *shrugs*

Still though, for what it is worth, they had one of most entertaining conferences since that Muppet opening was pretty great (I would love to see those Muppets again in the future.).

But anyway, since this is Nintendo, I am going share all my thoughts on what they announced today:

- Earthbound Beginnings (Or as it is originally known, Mother 1): I’ll admit I probably would prefer to have gotten news that a remake was being made of Mother 1 rather than an updated port as Mother 1 is the most dated (Especially in terms of sprite graphics.) of the trilogy.

Of course, as soon as I heard the news, I instantly went to the eShop and brought it because I wanted to show my support for the Mother series. Furthermore, I am curious to see how it compares to its sequel, Earthbound.

That and well, I am hoping this might convince Nintendo down the line to release Mother 3 here too.

- Super Mario Maker: While I hadn’t really seen any of Treehouse stuff for it yet, it looks like it will be pretty cool, based on what I seen from the Digital Event. I am looking forward to its release. I might even try to attempt the Best Buy thing this weekend for it. XD

- Star Fox Zero: I must say this title looks like it should be fun. But man, I wish they could had this as a demo at Best Buy. XD

Also Wonderful 101 Director, Hideki Kamiya, loves you.

- The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes: I am not sure what think of this game really. I am tempted by it due to multiplayer element, even though I doubt anyone would want to play online with me. XD

- Hyrule Warriors Legends: I already own the Wii U version (And I am nowhere near done it), so I don't see much a reason to get it as it is pretty much the same game, but with some bonus Wind Waker characters. *shrugs*

- Metroid Prime: Federation Force: Uh, I can't say I care for this one way or the other. Although I do think that it might been a better idea to make a new 2D Metroid game rather than a spinoff. But well, maybe it will surprise me.

- Fire Emblem: Fates: I am pretty hype for this game, although I hope they don't make me have to buy the game three times to get the whole experience.

Additionally I also gotten word that marriage will be thing again, but it doesn't look like same-sex marriages were included, which is extremely disappointing... *sigh*

- Genei Ibun Roku X FE: Honestly I don't know what to think of this game. I should probably watch some Treehouse stuff on it as this trailer really tells me nothing. XD

- Xenoblade Chronicles X: THE HYPE IS ON FIRE!

Yeah, I am mega hype for this game. I am so glad we finally got a release date.

- Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer: I am kind of interest in this. Mostly because I am curious about the gameplay element and how Amiibo cards work.

- Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival: I'll be honest I am only interested in this for the Amiibo figures. XD The game itself, I don't think I would have anyone to play it with.

- Yoshi’s Wolly World: I loved Yoshi's Island as a kid, so naturally I am pretty excited about this new Yoshi game and I look forward to play it.

Also I must have those special Yoshi amiibo! XD

- Yo-Kai Watch: Eh... I don't really care either way about this. I got enough games to deal with as it is. XD

- Fatal Frame: Madien of Black Water: I am bit disappointed that they kept this out of Digital Event, although I understand the reasoning. As for my thoughts on it, I am actually interested in it. I watched someone play one of older games in the series before, so I think I will give this game a try.

- Chibi-Robo: Zip-Lash: Like Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival, the Amiibo packed with this is mostly what I care about.

- Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam: Okay, I am not familiar with Paper Mario series. But I do enjoy Mario & Luigi series, so I am interested what will come from this. I don't know if I will buy it at release though.

- Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash: Eh... Yeah, I can't even pretend to care about this game.

And those were my thoughts on the Nintendo conference. Obviously I didn't hate it or something, but it definitely wasn't the ideal E3 event with announcements on big secret projects that making me go, "Take my money, Nintendo."

Square Enix - Overview

Honestly there wasn't a whole lot of interesting things going on at Square's presentation. Really the only noteworthy things from it were Kingdom Hearts III trailer and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided trailer, which generated major hype for me.

I was especially hyped by the Kingdom Hearts III trailer, even though the game won't be coming out until like 2017 or later. XD

***

And that's all my thoughts on this year's E3. Feel free to share your own here, if you want.

Alright, that's enough from me for today. I hope you are having a great week and thanks for taking the time to read this. Talk to you later, BZPers.

General Rambling: Splatoon & Thinking of Summer

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Video Games, Real Life Jun 08 2015 · 20 views

Hey, folks. Its been awhile since I have done one of these entries, so I thought I pop in and let you know how things are going. Really there is not a whole lot to say. Things mostly been same old same here (Wake up, go to work, go home, use free time in some way, go to bed...Repeat).

So nothing exciting really (I mean I would talk about work stuff, but I imagine that would bored most of you greatly.).

Uh... I got Splatoon recently, for those that might be wondering (Although my status message here probably gave it away quite clearly.). Personally I am enjoying it.

Although I will admit in its current state, it is overpriced, especially if you added the Amiibo for it into the equation. So yeah, I can't blame some people for waiting to get it as it does feel like it could used some more content. Another game mode or two for online would been nice to have. Bosses in single play mode (Excluding Final Boss, whom I am currently struggling to beat.) could use some more difficult as well (Like third boss, I beat super quick. There was little challenge to that one at all.).

So yeah, its far from perfect. But I am enjoying it and there is promise of future free updates (Which they have already introduced a new map and some weapons), so I feel at least somewhat justified in my purchase of it. That and well, I guess it is my "vote with my wallet" that Nintendo trying new things is a good thing. *shrugs*

But anyway, I wouldn't say I am saying I am that good at Splatoon. I mean I am kind of afraid to try Ranked Mode since I became level 10, not too long ago. XD

I don't really have a weapon that I am particularly good at really. Although I like using N-Zap '85 and Splattershot Jr, so I guess you could say those.

Oh, and I have yet to use the Amiibo, so I can't really comment on those features.

I don't really know how with friends thing for Splatoon works exactly. But if you want to play Splatoon with me, feel free (My Nintendo ID is BZPJMJ64.). I am sure you will crush me. XD

***

In other news, I been discussing with my friend about BrickFair VA trip lately and well, trying nail down a bit of schedule for us since its good to be prepare and stuff. And well, I thought maybe I should ask you folks for some advice since a lot of you are veterans of this kind of thing and I am kind of noob with this traveling stuff. So yeah, I appreciate any advice.

I guess write some general questions for you folks to answer, if you want.

1) Is there any particular event at BrickFair VA that we should check out while we are there (Outside well, the MOCs and the people)?

2) Is there anything outside of the con that we should check out (Museums, ect)?

Alright, that's enough from me for today. I hope you all have a great day and thank you for taking the time to read this. Talk to you later, BZPers.

Oh, and thank you all for participating in this little giveaway. Maybe we can do this again sometime. XD

In other news, I have made up my mind about those summer plans that I mention here previously and well, I decided I am going try to attend BrickFair VA in full this year (We will see how well that goes. At very least I'll have story to tell. XD).

So I have started the registration process for it today and well, here's what I decide my Brick Badge thing will be. (Credit goes to Takuma Nuva for second Brick Name).

Alright, that's enough from me for today. Thank you all for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have a great weekend. Talk to you later, BZPers.

Looks Like My Vacation Is...Over

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Video Games, Random Jan 05 2015 · 154 views

Hey, folks. As per tradition, I thought since today is last day of my holiday break that I would pop in and give a little update on how it went (Admittedly I did work on 29th to 31st, so I wasn't off really the whole week.). For the most part, I would say I had a pretty good break from work. Although it wasn't very productive break really.

I managed to finished Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth. I thought overall the game was pretty good and it makes wish Ace Attorney Investigations 2 was translated in English as I would love to play it. Also I must say that game's final boss have got to be toughest boss I have ever faced in the Ace Attorney series so far.

Speaking of Ace Attorney series, I started Dual Destinies this week. Although I didn't get very far in it. I just finished the first case and start a little bit of second case. So yeah, I am not very far in it. I also have a bit mixed opinions about some of changes in it (Such as Phoenix's voice). *shrugs* I am keeping an open mind though and I still having fun with the cases, so those mixed opinions are minor annoyances at best.

In other gaming news, I unfortunately didn't manage to play any Pokemon this week or last week (My little brother is now ahead of me in the game and he's only had it for like 10 days now. [I brought him a 3DS and Aqua Sapphire as a holiday gift.].). I did get play some Smash though and I did like two online matches. The first one I got pretty much destroyed in. Second one though I didn't do that bad in. I definitely need to train myself some more though.

Hm...I would mention how much I spent on Steam Winter Sale here. But I kind don't want think about that. XD Let's just say I took advantage of it and be done with it. Also I wish I realized earlier that Winter Trading Cards expired at the end of sale as now I have a bunch cards in my inventory wasting space (I can't delete them.). I feel like Steam needs a trash can in their inventory system.

But anyway, outside gaming stuff, I managed to watch a bit more Star Trek: Voyager. I am currently on Season 5, Episode 24. And well, I been enjoying the show (Captain Janeaway is pretty awesome.).

Beside that, I managed to pick up some BIONICLE 2015 sets (Protectors of Fire, Water, Ice, and Earth). I hadn't build them though. Also I got the first three Books of the Legend of Korra on DVD (I got that as a gift from a friend.). I plan on binge watching them all after I get Book 4 on DVD.

Oh, and I did some cleaning in the basement. It still a long way from being perfect, but I think I made good progress on it this week, so I am happy. I would like to get fish tank down here clean out by this month as it would be nice to have some fishes again. So hopefully even though I am going back to work now, I'll be able to find the time to do that. We'll just have to wait and see.

So yeah, that's pretty much all eventful things happened during my holiday break from work. Like I say earlier, I wasn't very productive. I would ramble more here, but I don't want take anymore of your time. That and well, its late here and I should probably go bed.

So thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have a great day today. I'll talk you later, BZPers.

- JMJ 2015

P.S. - For those wondering, yes, the title of this entry is KH II reference. I am actually playing little bit of KH II now as I write this as I realized a bit too late that I had forgot to play it during my break. XD

On Holiday Break...

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Real Life, Video Games, Random Dec 23 2014 · 211 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in today and let you all know that I am on holiday break from work now. That's pretty cool. It means i have more time to check out stuff here (Such as BIONICLE 2015 stuff, which I only really taken a brief view of.) and do other stuff (Video Games, ect.).

But yeah, you might see me around here a bit more. *shrugs* To be honest, I don't really have definite plans for my free time this week. Like right now, I just been watching a bunch Star Trek: Voyager on Netflix (I just finished season 3 and I am currently on season 4, episode 4.). XD

Hm...I probably should continue my Pokemon journey through Omega Ruby, which I hadn't played since the week...my grandmother passed away...

But yeah, uh... I probably should continue that. Oh, and for those wondering how much progress I made in it before that week, I was only up to second gym. So yeah, not a lot of progress. I am pretty sure all of you have beaten it by now. XD

Speaking of games, last weekend I decided to continue Ace Attorney: Investigations. I ended finishing Case 3 and I am probably going start Case 4 this week. And who knows, maybe I'll beat the game this week too. XD

That would be nice. It give me a reason to update my Backloggery. Of course, buying games for myself in the Steam Sale isn't exactly helping that backlog. XD

Speaking of Steam games, does anyone want these Steam keys:

- Bridge Constructor
- Magicka + Dungeons and Daemons DLC
- Magicka: Wizard Wars - Yogscast Tippin' Unique Item
- Cities in Motion 2
- Ace of Spades: Battle Builder > Sent to Meiko
- Thomas Was Alone (I actually I have played this one before. And if I am not mistaken, I did beat it. Its pretty cool simple 2D platformer. I recommend if you like platformers and it seems like it could run on most computers. It ran on my old one and that just have standard graphic card from 2008)
- Mark of the Ninja > Sent to Burnmad
- Montas (Early Access)
- Stronghold Crusader HD
- Swords and Soldiers HD
- NiGHTS Into Dreams > Sent to Kohaku
- Strike Suit Infinity > Sent to ~Shockwave~
- Call of Juarez

I got the keys from the Humble Bundle for "Yogscast Jingle Jam" this month and well, I didn't really donate for games, so I thought maybe you folks might want them. If you do, let me know and I'll sent you over a key code through PM here.

Moving on, my last gaming thought is I am probably going start KH II.5 this week since well, I been itching to play it (And well, it also helps that I finally beat Dream Drop Distance recently. Yes, I know what took me so long to do that. I really don't have any good excuse for not beating it sooner.). Oh, and I'll try to play some Smash as I have been neglecting it. XD

So yeah, I guess I have some ideas on how to use my free time this week. I doubt I'll do all of them, especially since I am sure I can think of plenty of other stuff. But well, we will just have to wait and see.

Alright, well, that's all I really have to say here. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have a great day today. I'll talk you later, BZPers.

Oh, and Happy Holidays to those that are celebrating a holiday this week.

Loot of the Week: Gamecube Controller Adapter, Amiibo, & KH II.5

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Real Life, Video Games, Random Dec 12 2014 · 196 views

UPDATED 12/12/2014: Well, I got my other package today!

Posted Image

Its the Gamecube Controller Adapter! :) Looking forward to playing around with that this weekend. Maybe I can even convince my brother to try out the new Smash, if he is not too busy. =P

***

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in really quick and share some loot that I got today. So yeah, here's what I got in the mail today.

Woot!

So as today, I have all of the First Wave of Amiibos (DK, Link, Mario, and Kirby are here. I gave Pikachu to my sister.), which is pretty cool. XD

Hm...I am not sure yet if I am going collect the second wave of them (Although looking at second wave preorders does make me a bit worried that I won't find any of them, which kind stinks as I would like get at least Pit.). I probably I will collect them, to be honest.

Oh, and I won't be keeping them in the packaging like this as I would like to use them (After all, they do give me someone to play Smash with when I don't have my siblings around.).

Oh, and before I forget to mention I also got my copy of KH II.5 today (as shown above). Admittedly I probably will not be able to play it though until my brief winter break later in the month. XD I wish there was more time in the day as I would love to revisit KH II now (If you been following my blog for awhile now, you know I love overusing this line from it, "Looks like my summer vacation is...over.").

Oh, well. It gives me something to look forward to during the break (And gives me chance to use that line again when that "vacation" ends. XD)

Alright, well, that's all I really have to say here. Hm...I probably should note that I might be bumping this entry tomorrow as I do have one more package coming this week. I want make sure it works before I get too excited about it. But yeah, I probably update this tomorrow.

With that said, thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have a great day today. I'll talk you later, BZPers.

P.S. I'll try to get a Pokelog up this weekend. I kind of forgot I was going to write one last Sunday, so I am sorry about that.

Pokelog Day 1: Groundhog Day Beginnings

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Nintendo, Pokemon, Video Games Nov 23 2014 · 180 views

Hey, folks. I am popping back into today to give you a status report on my progress through Pokemon Omega Ruby yesterday. To be honest, I didn't get much done (If anything, a lot of you folks are probably finished by now. XD).

And as the title suggests, I actually play the beginning of this game twice as I kind decided to take advantage Pokemon Bank and use it to get all three Hoenn starters. XD I only had to erase my file once since I already have Torchic from giveaway during X & Y release. And well, I had bred like a bunch of Torchic in my X game, so I just sent a baby one over once I had bred other two starters in my X game.

So yeah, I have three Hoenn starters now. =D Yeah, I know it is not that much of achievement really (Especially to you folks that have actually caught all 719 Pokemon before.). But well, I thought it would be cool to try out all three starters since to be honest, Generation 3 was probably the Generation of Pokemon that I remember least of (Probably doesn't help that it came after my original favorite Generation 2.). So in some ways, this play-through feels new to me. XD

Really that's about it for what I played yesterday. I mean I hadn't really decide on a team yet, outside playing around with the three starters. I guess I'll mention really quick who is in my party:

- Torchic, Level 9
- Beldum, Level 6 (Nintendo Network Giveaway one)
- Treecko, Level 16 (He was at Day Care when he got to level 16, so he didn't evolve)
- Mudkip, Level 13
- Surskit, Level 5
- Poochyena, Level 5

And yes, I hadn't nicknamed any of my Pokemon. I should probably do that when I find the Name Rater. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that I met Wally (He is such a cutie.). Actually I guess it is a given that I have met him. XD

But yeah, that's about it for my first day in Pokemon Omega Ruby. I am not sure if I am going to be playing it today, especially considering I decided to start watching Star Trek: Voyager today.

Hm...I don't know if I have mention here, but I finished Deep Space Nine last month. I thought it was pretty good and its currently my favorite Star Trek series. But anyway, to get back on topic, the next Pokelog probably won't be up till Tuesday, assuming I played it on Monday.

Alright, I rambled enough here. I am sorry if this was boring entry for you to read. Thank you though for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have a great day. I'll talk you later, BZPers.

Smash Omega Ruby Day

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Real Life, Video Games, Pokemon, Nintendo, LEGO, Random Nov 21 2014 · 154 views

Hey, folks. It been awhile since I wrote a blog entry, so I thought I would pop in today and give a little update. Really there's not much to update you folks on since not a whole lot been going on with me. I just been working and doing the usual stuff (Reading stuff on BZP, watching videos, and playing video games).

Oh, and I don't think I mention here, but I am excited for BIONICLE 2015 (GEAR FUNCTIONS! Oh, how I missed them.). I will admit I am a bit behind of some news about it though. But it is on my to do list to watch all BZPower videos about BIONICLE 2014 during my holiday break next month. So hopefully I'll be up to speed by then and maybe I can comment in more detail about it. XD We'll see, I guess.

But anyway, as the title of entry say, I got my copies of Super Smash Bros for Wii U and Pokemon Omega Ruby today. And I must say I am excited to play them (lol And yet here I am writing this entry rather than just play them already. XD). Hopefully maybe I can play a match or something with some of you folks at some point.

EDITED: Oh, and I am bring back Pokelog on here, so expected to see entry about the start of my journey through Pokemon Omega Ruby tomorrow.

Speaking of that, if you hadn't added me on the Wii U or 3DS, here's my friend code and Nintendo ID in case you want to do that:
