The Library That Never Was


General Holiday Rambling

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Video Games Dec 24 2013 · 70 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 · 98 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 · 76 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.

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in LEGO, Video Games, BZPower Nov 23 2013 · 93 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 · 134 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 · 105 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.

Steam Sale Loot or lack there of.

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Steam, Video Games, Real Life Jul 24 2013 · 61 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in and give a sale report like I did for last year's summer sale. Of course, considering I didn't really pay much attention to Steam last week, I didn't really bother with most of deals this time around.
That and this PC can't really run anything on Steam that isn't a Retro old school style title, so there wasn't much point in buying games there when all they would do is sit on my computer and remind me that I need to get a new one (Which admittedly I should of done by now, but I been kind of lazy about it.).
But anyway, what did I buy during this year's Steam Sale?
-  Awesomenauts (3-Pack, which means I get two copies to give to friends. I already gave one of those away, but other one is still up for grabs, so let me know if you want it. By the way, I can't actually run this game. XD), Price: $6.78
Total spent during the entire sale: $6.78
So yeah, I didn't really take advantage of this year's sale at all. Oh, well, its not big of deal and it saves me money anyway. =P
Of course, that isn't help by fact that I keep buying stuff for my 3DS (I brought Attack of The Friday Monsters! - A Tokyo Tale a few days ago. I hadn't play it yet though. XD), which I seem to be addicted to play games on lately. I think Animal Crossing: New Leaf is to blame for that mostly. =P And well, the 3DS does seems to be getting itself a lot of good titles lately (I can't wait for Pokemon X & Y later this year.).
Like I actually been thinking about maybe picking up Shin Megami Tensei IV since the Club Nintendo deal does sound kind of appealing actually. Plus, it is an RPG and I love those types of games. Oh, speaking of RPGs, I got EarthBound for my Wii U, which is awesome. I can't play a whole lot of it right now though since I need to get some things out of way before Thursday comes around.
Speaking of Thursday, that's day of Zelda Symphony and I honestly cannot wait for it to come. I imagine it probably be the highlight of my year. Oh, and my sister manage to snatch herself some tickets, so she will be coming along with me and my friend to the symphony. :)
Alright, I think I did enough rambling here for one day. Thanks for taking time to read this, folks. I hope you all have a great day. Talk to you later, BZPers.

Plans for next few weeks...

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in BZPower, Real Life, Video Games, Random Jul 20 2013 · 58 views

Hey, folks. Back again to ramble a bit here about next week since I got a few things planned....Some of them might even be BZPower related like I am shipping my BrickFair package out on Thursday next week.
That package, by the way, is probably just going to be two MOCs since I feel like they are best ones that I have currently. That and they are pretty easy to photograph since they are not very complex. Not that I am saying my others are complex really since I mostly just mean that they are more likely to have loose pieces than these two would. *shrugs* Oh, and I might put a hat in my box since you BZPers are all obsessed with that piece of headgear. That and you all can say I was there in spirit. =P
In other BZPower related news, I am going be setting up my BZPower shirt raffle thing next week. So if you are interested in a chance at getting a free BZPower shirt, you should check that out. You do have do something, of course, to qualify for a chance at getting one of these shirts or some of Bionicle pieces that I am giving way. Its simply though. All you got to do is provide a link to a post that you made in creative outlet forums recently. There will be more information about that in entry itself. Oh, and its not restrict to just members from USA/Canada (Although it might take longer to get to you.).
Alright, so beside BZPower stuff, I am going to Zelda Symphony next Thursday, so that should be fun assuming it isn't unbearable hot that day. I sure hope not as that will not be fun. XD Oh, and also on Thursday, I plan to take written exam to get my permit again. Hopefully this time, I'll get to use my permit a bit more and actually be able to get my license finally. Here's hoping for that as it make attending a BrickFair in full more of possibility in the future.
In other news, Book 2 of Legend of Korra has been announced for a September release, so I am pretty excited for that, especially after watching the trailer. That news also did good job of reminding that Part 2 of The Search has come out, so I am looking forward to read that next week when it arrives at my home and when I get a chance to actually read it. 
In gaming related news, I got myself Earthbound on Wii U yesterday, which I am probably going to play a lot of tomorrow, if I don't end up marathon-ing Avatar: The Last Airbender or playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf (Which I really need to get back in habit of playing daily.) instead.
Oh, and speaking of Wii U, I am going probably be posting a LEGO City review sometime late August since I been really itching to do that, even though the game has been out for awhile now. Beside, I'll be frank with you folks that while I do enjoy the game, it is not a system seller by any means.
So yeah, the review is not going be like "go buy Wii U, you fools". I am just going share my thoughts of it and list some pros and cons and stuff. Oh, and I'll be sure to keep my fingers away from typing any story spoilers of it, so those that hadn't experience it yet will be safe. Assuming this review is well received, I might make a habit of doing reviews like that in future. We will just have to wait and see, I guess.
Alright, I think I ramble enough here about my plans for next week and stuff. I hope this entry was slightly interesting to folks. If not, sorry about that. Thanks though for taking time to read it all. Talk to you later, BZPers.
EDITED: Oh, happy birthday, BZPower. Thanks to the staff for all your efforts throughout the years here. I hope BZPower has many more years to come.

Pacific Rim / Hangout Overview

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Real Life, Video Games, Random Jul 14 2013 · 75 views

Hey, folks. Yeah, I am aware that I am kind of late with this and well, sorry about that. I kind of lost track of time since I had such a blast hanging out with my friend today. But hey, I am here now writing this, so it is not like I forgot about it. Beside, I doubt any of you folks were waiting for this or something.
So yeah, with that said, what are my non-spoiler related thoughts on Pacific Rim? Well, I personally like it and I would definitely recommend you check it out, if you can. Heck, I actually want to go to theaters to see it again and that's pretty rare of me (Really going to movies in general is rare of me nowadays. This is like the second movie that I seen this year.).
I will definitely be picking this up on Blu-Ray or DVD when I get chance since I would love to be able to watch this movie again a few times. Oh, and I love main theme for this movie way too much. I am actually listen it now, while I write this.
Now I should point out that while I do very much like this film, it is not without its faults such as some Jaeger pilots being barely more than extras in the film itself and fact that sometimes the epic soundtrack does drown out the dialogue being spoke by characters. The story itself also by no means revolutionize. So yeah, don't come to this movie expecting Shakespeare with Giant Robot and Monster fighting.  However the action and science fiction elements are all worthily of praise in my opinion.
Alright, that's all I can think of talk about without well, spoiling anything for you folks. Moving right along, uh...my friend and I finally finished Kirby's Return to Dreamland today. It was pretty good. Although I failed a lot in places since I kept running blindly into things at times. XD
Oh, we also played a bit of Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon Co-Op as well. That was pretty fun. Not much to say on that really, beside that I was pretty terrible at that as well (To be fair, I hadn't play it since Animal Crossing: New Leaf came out.). XD
Uh...Lastly we start Super Mario Bros U today (Well, more like pick up where I last left off.), where I play as a pro as Green Mario. ....Okay, nah, I was pretty terrible in that as well. I got like two continues as Luigi during our brief run through World...Uh 3, I think. So the moral of story here is that I am terrible at video games.
But yeah, I had a great time hanging out with my friend today. I kind wish we could do stuff like this a bit more often. But eh, that's life. With that said, uh...I think I am done here. I don't really have anything else to talk about that you might be interest in. *shrugs*
Uh...I guess while I have you here, I should ask this: Is there anything that you particularly want me to talk about in my blog here? Just wondering.
Alright, I should hit the hay now. After all, it is like 3 AM now. XD Thanks for reading this entry and I hope you all have a good day. Night, BZPers.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Video Games, Nintendo Jun 30 2013 · 152 views

UPDATE 06-29: Added pictures and addition information about my progress in general.
Hey, folks. I am just popping in today to give you all a progress report on how things are going in Animal Crossing: New Leaf for me. I am kind of short on time though, so expected this to be brief mostly. I am probably going to come back here later and add in some pictures of my house and stuff.
So to start off, my friend code for my 3DS is 5412-9992-6542 (Which you should see in my handy little content block to the right.), so PM me yours if you want to add me for whatever reason.
Oh, and my Dream Address for my town is 4700-2202-3933 (Which is also in my handy dandy content block.), so you could check out my town that way, if you want. Although there is really not much to see there since my town doesn't have much in terms of development.
I currently have Club LOL (Just got it today), Dream Suite, T & T Mart, Leif's Flower Shop, Able Sisters, Kicks, and Shampoodle (I will have that place soon) in my Main Street. My museum is currently in process of being upgrade (I just need to gather funds is all. EDITED: Funds have been gathered. I should have that upgrade by tomorrow.). I got 2 paintings, 34 bugs, 49 Fossils, and 41 fishes in my museum at the moment.
Hm...In terms of collected fossils there, I have a T-Rex, Styracosarus, Pachysarus, Archaeopteryx, Peking Man, Fern Fossil, Dinosaur Egg, Ammonite, Trilobite, Shark Tooth, Coprolite, Pteranodon, Apatosaurus, and Dimetrodon. I guess that's an alright exhibit of fossils. I am sure there are better collections out there.
In terms of projects, I have a Fire Hydrant, a campsite, a fence project (Which I use as garden for flowers), a hammock, and a second bridge. So yeah, like I said early, my town is really not that developed honestly. I currently have 8 Animal Villagers (One of them moved out on Wednesday because they want to see the "bigger world".). My house currently has a second floor, so it is on the fourth expansion (I believe). EDITED: Pictures of my house: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
Oh, and in terms of fruit, my town fruit is Oranges. However I was able to import coconuts, pears, durians, mangoes, cherries, lychees, peaches, apples, and lemons to my town with help of people from here (Kohaku, Hahli Husky, Alku, Lyichir, and Avohkah Tamer. Thanks again to all those folks that help me out there.) and the island.
As for tools, I have a timer, an axe (I got two extra in case it breaks.), a watering can, a megaphone, a net, a slingshot, a fishing rod, a shovel, and a black wet suit, so I got most of important tools by now. I don't have any silver or gold versions though, but that's not surprising since I don't bell grind enough to get town projects done each day and well, it is still early on and all. That and I don't really know how to get most of them anyway. XD
Alright, I think last topic to cover here is clothes and well, I got a lot of clothes (Mostly headgear to be honestly. XD). I'll list most of them here, but I am probably not going to attach pictures as it will take too much time to really pull off well. Sorry, folks. But anyway, here is a list:
Hats / Masks
- Paperboy Cap
- DJ Cap
- Detective Hat
- Blue Nightcap
- Cow Bone
- Red Pikmin
- Hero's Cap
- Fi Mask
- Motocross Helmet
- Lion-Dance Mask
- Blue-Zap Helmet
- Knight's Helmet
- Toad Hat
- Midna's Mask
- Majora's Mask
- Doctor's Mask
- Stache & Glasses
- Round Glasses
- Bad Bro's Stache
- King's Beard
- Work Shirt
- Sweater-Vest
- HHA Tee
- Blue-Stripe Tee
- Green Emblem Blazer
- Blue Aloha Tee
Pant(s) / Dress(es)
- Blue-Zap Pants
- Brown Formal Pants
- Kilt
- Overall Dress
- Default Shorts (I don't know what its name is since apparently they are bugged and will not actually go into inventory when you change pants.)
Shoe(s) / Sock(s)
- Hiking Boots
- Steel-Toed Boots
- Cleats
- Varia Suit Shoes
- Ninja Sandals
- Red Boat Shoes
- Gray Socks
So those clothes in Animal Crossing: New Leaf currently. And yes, folks, you did read right above. I do own a dress, so take that however you will (If you have a problem with it, I would appreciate if you kept it to yourself. Thanks.). I honest have no problem with it since I think it looks great, especially when I am wearing my Majora's Mask. That and it has added benefit of getting back my default shorts.
Alright, that's all I can really think of talking about here. I am sorry if it was kind of boring to read. Oh, and I hope you all have a great day and thanks for taking time to read this. I'll talk to you all later. See ya, BZPers.
