General Rambling: Ace Attorney...

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Video Games Mar 18 2014 · 106 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in today to mention that I beat Trials and Tribulations in Ace Attorney series yesterday!
 
I think played it for like eight hours yesterday and I ended up being so engrossed with it that I stay up to two in the morning to beat it. XD So yeah, I was really hook on this game and I am already itching to play Apollo Justice (Which I am probably going start as soon as I done writing this entry.).
 
And of course, now I don't know what else to say here, especially considering I just load the title screen of Apollo Justice on my 3DS right now. XD
 
Well, I guess I can give you my general opinions of this series.  Although I guess it is given that I greatly enjoy and have a lot of fun playing these games, I mean I do kind of blow up on Twitter whenever I am playing one of them (I try avoid posting spoilers on the games there, so its mostly just me sharing a quote from the game that I thought was funny and some occasionally thoughts on a case here and there). XD
 
Hm...If I had rank the games that I played so far, I think I would rank them as follows:
 
- Trials and Tribulations: Okay, this is probably not surprising really as I have played this one more recently. But well, I enjoyed a lot cases in this one, especially the final one (Which might just be my favorite of the entire series so far.).
 
It also has cases where you play as Mia Fey (Who I honestly would love see get her own Ace Attorney series.). And of course, Prosecutor Godot is in this and I rather like him (Although I wouldn't go so far as to claim he is my favorite Prosecutor as that spot still kind of taken by Edgeworth as well, I played three games where he has appeared and I have seen him grow into one of best Prosecutor in the game series [I say this because his interest has always been on getting justice. Not just beating Phoenix as some Prosecutors seem so dead set on.]).
 
It also did a great job of tying the three games together, which I rather liked. Although I am annoyed that the seen to have forgotten that a certain prosecutor was planning to return a certain piece of evidence to Phoenix the next time they met (REF: This loose thread is from the ending of the second game.). But well, that's just a tiny detail really, so it doesn't hurt me liking this game. Oh, and the music is pretty great! 
 
- Justice For All: Again, this might be a case of I played this more recently than the first game really. Still though, I feel like it improved the game with the cool new feature, "Psyche-Lock". Miss von Karma also a pretty cool prosecutor. Oh, and my favorite case in this one was the last one.
 
Hm...If I had to say anything negative about this game, its that it only four cases rather than five cases.
 
- Ace Attorney: Eh...There is not much to say here (I say this because it has been a few months since I played this one.), beside that while I do like original game, I feel like its sequels did a good job improving on the format set up here. That and well, Edgeworth plays a big part in this game and he is well, my favorite prosecutor. Oh, cases 4 & 5 were my favorites in this one.
 
Alright, I think I ramble enough here about the Ace Attorney series. Apologizes if this was boring for you folks. I hope you all have a great day today and thank you for taking the time to read this. Talk to you later, BZPers. *clicks start on 3DS*

New PC & Ace Attorney Games...

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Video Games Feb 09 2014 · 153 views

Hey, folks. I thought pop in again to let you know that I got my new PC last Wednesday.
 
Yeah, I know I am kind of late to talk about this (Technically I did say it was coming in last entry though.). But well, I was busy playing around with it, so I didn't really bother to go on BZPower for past few days.
 
Eh...To be honest, I don't have a lot to talk about it really. Outside of well, it looks like it can run the majority of Steam games, so I might be more active there now. Although I doubt I'll be playing a lot of multiplayer stuff on there since I doubt anyone wants to do that stuff with me really. And beside, I tend to play mostly single-player games anyway. *shrugs*
 
Oh, and this PC is Windows 8, which got say after four days with it, it actually doesn't seem too bad. I mean I am not saying it is greatest interface for a computer in the world as honestly I rather have Windows 7 as OS instead. But well, I have managed to get it to work for my purposes, so I can't complain. (Its kind of funny that I can get the hang of Windows 8 in a way. But if you ask me how to use a smartphone, I would be completely clueless. XD)
 
Hm...You know it kind of weird that even though I can play my Steam games now, I hadn't really play any games on my PC really, outside of Gone Home (Which yes, I know some would argue that is not really a game per say. But well, I liked it. I thought it was a fun little exploration game with an interesting story. *shrugs*).
 
I am not sure why really. I guess it might be because I don't have a controller that can work on a PC (I find keyboard controls to be a bit of pain, especially WASD for movement. That might just because I don't know how to type properly.), so I am kind of waiting till I get one before I actually play more of my Steam library.
 
Well, I guess the other reason that I hadn't been playing much of my Steam library is probably because I jumped back into Ace Attorney series this week and man, I am loving these games. I just beat Justice For All yesterday and that last case was great. Oh, and I am actually playing Trials and Tribulations while I write this; so yeah, I been kind of hooked on these games lately. XD
 
That's all I really have talk about here today. Well, I guess while I am here, I should mention that no, I have not seen the LEGO Movie since I was planning on waiting till 22nd when BZPower Virigina meetup for it is going to happen (Although considering how bad the weather has been lately, I kind doubt I'll be able to make it. *shrugs*). So yeah, no spoilers, please.
 
Alright, thanks for taking time to read this, folks. I hope you all have a great day. Talk to you later, BZPers.

A Blast from the Past: ColecoVision Edition with General Rambling

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Video Games, LEGO Feb 03 2014 · 98 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in today really quick to share something that I found while I was doing some house cleaning on Saturday.
 
So yeah, as the title say, I found an old gaming console (Its from early 80s), called ColecoVision, as well as fifteen or so games for it.
 
Hm...I really don't have much to say about it, beside showing these pictures, since I hadn't really had the chance yet to test if it still works. Although I guess I should explain where we got it from since as my profile shows I definitely was not born in the 80s or earlier.
 
Now I could be misremembering this, but I believe we got this system from my Uncle back around the time that Donkey Kong 64 came out. I don't remember exact reason why my Uncle gave us this system, but I believe it might been to show us what games were like before N64 era (Mind you, we have technically seen that already in a way since my sister has a SNES and all. *shrugs*). As far as what I remember playing on it, the only game that I remember playing was Frogger.
 
Oh, and we do have driving wheel expansion for this, but I believe we probably broke that expansion as I can't find the pedal for it anywhere.
 
That's about it really. Well, I guess I could answer what I plan to do with it after I test to see if it works at all. I am inclined to say I might keep it since it is a nice piece of history and all. *shrugs*
 
In other news, I should be getting a new PC in a few days. It is Windows 8, so that's going to be a challenge to try to master and all. But well, I guess it might be a good thing. I mean I might actually be able to play some of my Steam games, assuming graphic card is not too terrible (Its an AMD Radeon 8760.).
 
Hm...Moving on to some LEGO stuff, I managed to check out the new season of Ninjago this week and I thought it was pretty good. I'll tag rest of my thoughts in a spoiler tag for those that hadn't seen it yet.
 
Spoiler

 
Okay, its getting kind of late here, so I should probably wrap up my thoughts here and head to bed.
 
That should be easy since I only really have one thought left to share and that is: Do you folks think I should maybe try and check out Philly Brick Fest in April? I been thinking about it lately and it definitely close enough that I could realistically go to it. But well, I don't know. The thought of meeting a bunch of new people and the fact that I am not a great MOCer and all kind of scare me off from idea.
 
Alright, I think I rambled enough here 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.

Pokemon Y

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Pokemon, Video Games Jan 12 2014 · 126 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in again since I want to ask you folks something (Although considering my luck with my last entry, it might not be worth ask here at all. *shrugs*).
 
Basically I want to ask you folks: What starters should I pick for Pokemon Y? I am mostly asking this because I am probably going start playing that tomorrow (after work, obviously), so I can get the event Torchic before it ends on the 15th. That and well, I thought it be cool to give you some power with this Pokemon journey and have you pick out my starters at least.
 
So yeah, here's your choices for my starters: 
 
Kalos Starters:
- Fennekin
OR
- Chespin
 
Kanto Starters:
- Squirtle
OR
-Bulbasaur
 
For those wondering why Froakie and Charmander are not listed, that's because my Pokemon X team already having them.
 
Hm...I just thought of another question for you folks. Could you give me a name and nickname for my character in Y? I already named my X character JMJ, so I thought just now that maybe I should give you a choice in that as well.
 
So yeah, that's about it really. I guess I can mention while I have you here that I got the DVD for Pacific Rim yesterday. I am probably going rewatch it sometime next week (Hm...I also need to get around to watch more Doctor Who at some point.). That should be fun. :)
 
Alright, that's enough from me. *yawn* Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have a good day. Talk to you all later.

General Holiday Rambling

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Video Games Dec 24 2013 · 78 views

Hey, folks. I am just popping in real quick to give a little update since I feel share some things with ya.
 
So yeah, I guess I'll start off by saying I expected my LEGO City: Undercover review to be up sometime this weekend, assuming I don't procrastinate. XD
 
As for what I been doing the past few days, I just been playing video games and watching videos mostly. So yeah, not exactly a very productive break so far. But well, I am enjoying having this free time to do stuff like this, so I can't complain really.
 
Oh, and I finished the first Phoenix Wright game the other day. It was pretty great. I am glad I decided to check the series out and I can't wait to continue Justice for All (I finished Case 1 in that yesterday.).
 
Hm...Speaking of games, does anyone want the Humble Bundle Steam Keys for Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Magicka: Wizard Wars, Napoleon: Total War, Shank 2, Torchlight, Awesomenauts, Sanctum: Collection, and Rust? I can't say I have any use for these (I mean my computer is kind of a toaster, after all.), so I thought I should give it to someone that could use to them. So yeah, let me know if you want them.
 
Alright, I think I ramble enough here. After all, I don't want to keep you folks here too long reading my boring blog here, so that's all from me for today. Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have a great day. Talk to you later, BZPers.

Nighttime Rambling: Random Post-Weekend Thoughts

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Video Games Dec 17 2013 · 107 views

Hey, folks. I am just popping in to ramble for a bit. That and well, share some thoughts that I been having for past few days. Apologizes in advance, if it is a boring read.
 
Alright, so where should I begin? Well, to start off, last Saturday I finally beat the main story of Fire Emblem: Awakening.
 
Yes, I know I am slow. I unfortunately have a bad habit when it comes to games, where I get really into a game and then after awhile I take a break and don't go back to it until months later. XD
 
But yeah, I manage to beat the main story and I got to say the ending was pretty great. I definitely look forward to replaying Endgame when I get around to do more stuff with support relationships (Officially speaking, I only have two married couples.). That and well, I am looking forward to play some of DLC maps and stuff.
 
I am not sure when I'll do that though as I kind of feel like I should get back to another game that I been neglecting. XD I probably should go back to Pokemon X or Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. Although I guess I could just play a little of each next week since I will be off from work. *shrugs*
 
In other game related news, I been thinking about checking out some Choose Your Own Adventure books since the idea behind them kind of interested. That and well, I kind want to take a stab at writing my own Choose Your Adventure book next year for Bionicle or Ninjago as I think it would be fun. So yeah, basically I would be reading these books for research purposes. XD Oh, and feel to suggest Choose Your Own Adventure books for me to check out.
 
*yawn* Well, I think I said enough here for today. I have no doubt that forgot some stuff that I was going to mention here. But hey, that's to be expected when you write a blog entry when you are kind of tired from a long work day.
 
With that said, thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have a good day. Talk to you later, BZPers.

Nighttime Rambling: Work Desk Edition

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Video Games Dec 11 2013 · 82 views

Hey, folks. It been awhile since I posted here, so I thought I pop back in and give a little update.
 
So to start right off, here is a picture of my desk at work. Why am I linking a picture of my desk here? Because for some reason, I decided at end of work today that I want to test out the camera in this Tracfone Android phone that I got last weekend.
 
That and well, if I mention work here, I guess you folks can now properly visual me working on this dusty old Windows XP computer to do CAD (Computer-Aided Drafting) and database work. =P
 
lol Obviously I am not going to talk about work though since I don't want bored you. I mean nothing really noteworthy is happening this week. I am just doing the usual stuff, which is getting manufacturing books ready for release in the shop.
 
So yeah, let's move on to something else. Hm...Have you folks heard about Miiverse being on the 3DS now? Its pretty neat add-on. Although it definitely a lot more simplified compared to one on the Wii U (Mostly it lacks the friends list and personal messenger that the Wii U one has.).
 
Still it is a cool feature to have on the 3DS. I am not sure I will use it much though, outside of admiring the art of other people there. That being said, you can follow me there, if you want. My ID should BZPJMJ64 on there.
 
In other gaming news, I am thinking of maybe doing a little reflection on the games of 2013 here. I probably do that during my winter break from work. So you can look forward to that, I guess. I'll be sure have my review of LEGO City: Undercover done before that though. So you got two things to look forward to from me. XD
 
Hm...I think that's about it for this update. I am probably forgetting something. But eh, it is probably not important and I doubt it is interesting enough to mention here. So thanks for taking the time to read this, folks. I hope you all have a great day. Talk to you later, BZPers.

Question

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in LEGO, Video Games, BZPower Nov 23 2013 · 99 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in again and ask you all a question. It technically one that I ask before here, but I thought it bring it up again since I do have a couple days off next week, so I have a bit of free time to do some stuff probably.
 
But anyway, my question is this: Would you folks like to see a review on LEGO City: Undercover here? As I have said above, I have asked this question before and some have expressed interest in maybe seeing a review from me. Of course, I never did get around to those times since there is always other things that pop up that distract me from doing so. XD
 
That being said, I still would like to kind of do one. So I been thinking maybe going back to LEGO City during my brief break next week and then next month, take a couple of weeks to work on writing a review for it. Of course, that's pending on if you folks want to see it.
 
Oh, and if I do end up doing this review, does anyone know if we are allow to post LEGO game reviews in the Media Discussion forum or is it best to just keep in my blog here? Just curious as I know you can post LEGO set reviews in the Set Discussion forums, but I don't see anything in the rules stating that LEGO game reviews are allow anywhere. So yeah, I guess I would keep in my blog then, unless someone else can tell me posting it in the Media Discussion Forum is fine.
 
Alright, that's pretty much all I have to talk about for this entry. I appreciate anyone that takes time to answer my questions here. If you don't have an answer, then thanks anyway. And I hope you all are having a good day today. Talk to later, BZPers.

Saturday Haul - Lawyer Edition

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Video Games, Real Life Nov 04 2013 · 141 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in sharing what I got in mail last Saturday since well, why not.
 
So uh, here is a picture of my haul from Saturday. As you can tell from picture, I brought a bunch of DS games from Phoenix Wright series. Why did I buy them? Because my boss always say I should be a lawyer due to my attention to detail skills, so I thought "hey, let play a lawyer situlatior then."
 
lol Okay, that's not the real reason. My real reason for getting it was because I try to Dual Destinies demo awhile back and I thought "Hey, this looks interesting. Maybe I should give the series a look."
 
And well, as you can see above, I ended up deciding to buy all four previous games (Not including Dual Destinies, which I might buy later, if other games keep my interest.) in the series. So far, I am on near the end of the third case in the first one and I am liking it, so I hadn't regret make this purchase yet. I guess I could keep you folks posted on that, if you want.
 
Oh, and I am probably not going to be playing Pokemon at all this week due to these games since I kind want to try to push myself to get through most of them this week, if possible. We'll see how well that goes. XD
 
Alright, so beside the games, I also got my copy of The Search, Part 3 and man, I thought it was good. I especially like how it humanize Zuko's mother. I won't say anymore than that, so I don't spoil things for you folks. But yeah, I certainly like the series. I am looking forward to Toph's trilogy next year.
 
That's all I really have to talk about, folks. I guess I can take this time though to remind you that I am hosting some raffles and all you got to do to enter is leave a comment in the entry. So yeah, if you want some free TNG Miru or a BZPower shirt, you should probably check that out.
 
Alright, with that said, thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you have a great day. Talk to later, BZPers.

Waiting on the mail: LEGO DeLorean on the way

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, LEGO, Video Games Aug 15 2013 · 114 views

Hey, folks. Just popping in mostly to say I should be getting my LEGO DeLorean either tomorrow or Saturday this week. I honestly can't wait to get my hands on it. :) I might even take some pictures of it to show you folks, if you want (If I have time this weekend, I might even try to do a mini review of sorts for it.).
 
Oh, and in other news, I caved and brought Mario & Luigi: Dream Team last Sunday since trailers last week got me interested in it. I hadn't play much of it though since I been awful at managing my time properly this week. The last thing that I did in it was finished the first dream boss fight. So yeah, I am not very far in it at all.
 
And well, folks, that's all interesting things that I can think to mention here. I would waffle on about other random stuff like Burn Notice or work this week. But eh, I don't want to keep you any longer than I have already. *shrugs*
 
So yeah, that's all you get from me today. Thanks for taking the time to read this, folks. I hope you all have a great day. :) Talk to you later, BZPers.
