Sbc: System Building Contest

Posted by Swert , Mar 08 2011 · 35 views

I am in the process of planning a System Building Contest here on my blog.

Feel free to suggest a theme, maybe we'll get enough interest to actually do something amazing.

All I know so far is all entries will be voted upon, then judged by top folk (also known as me, and maybe a few friends XD I'd love to ask my boss Dan Parker to judge, but he may be too busy, who knows.)

So let's get some ideas flowing.

So I Was In An Accident.

So, I fell down on the sidewalk (rainy day, slipped and fell), scraped up my right knee, possibly hit my head and gained a concussion (major headache all day), and still got up and put in a six-hour work day.

With a bleeding knee, and a concussion.

And then I went in today as well.

That's dedication right there, folks. The Swert WILL NOT DIE.

Review Of Lego Star Wars Iii Demo For Xbox 360

Posted by Swert , Feb 23 2011 · 58 views

Just one statement, really:

WHY MUST I WAIT A WHOLE MONTH FOR THIS?!

That's really it.

I love the graphics upgrade, the change over with both the lightsaber change, and the gameplay mechanic for vehicle fights. I -love- the fact we can now land them and exit our ship and fight droids. I dunno about what I think will be a real-time strategy mode, but hey, it can't be all too bad right?

Force powers are MUCH better. I love the fact it works like the LEGO Harry Potter Wingadium Leviosa power, in that we can lift and move in multiple axes. The fact they also added The Force Unleashed-inspired force push is awesome, and lightsaber toss is a much welcome addition, especially after seeing it in LEGO Batman.

Oh wow, C-3PO finally has a purpose : O He's the archeologist/Hermione of Star Wars now, and in a much simpler method than the 3x3 box and the 2x2 box we had last. Now it's like Simon Says, only instead of more challenges, you get opened doors. Awesome.

I know this whole entry is really spoiler-laced as far as what to expect, especially if you planned to try the Demo. Trust me, this only touches base on SOME of what to expect in it.

I'm sold on the game, personally.

Brickfair Vs Brickcon

Posted by Swert , Feb 22 2011 · 75 views

Let's see...

I -could- pay $6 round trip to get up to Seattle for BrickCon, then use my Orca bus pass (which after $3 would be free) and find a hotel near the convention hall or within bus range, or bum a ride...

or pay $429 BEFORE TAXES round-trip flight to Washington, D.C., get a ride or a bus to the convention hall... and then pay the $52 to get into the convention, and still find a way around the town I have never been in before.

Oh, and I'd have no family nearby in case I get really stuck, since they all live on the West Coast.

To all those people who asked me, for many weeks and months, "Hey, going to Brickfair?" Guess which convention I've chosen. tongue.gif

So, I doubt there's any WWE fans who regularly read my blag, but yeah, I wanna comment on the major matches. Spoiler tags for those who did not see it/can't see it.

I definately will be looking forward to WrestleMania 27, despite the main events being what they are.

An Introduction, Of Sorts.

Posted by Swert , Feb 20 2011 · 40 views

So, I'm not exactly a well-known person, so I should introduce myself to the BZPower citizens. Let's face it, I don't do anything nearly notable enough to be recognized.*

I shall list my credentials. I doubt they're notable, but my friends think they're cool.
  • BS01 Owner, Administrator, and overall decision maker. Anything on BS01 you don't like or think should be changed? Rant here.
  • PREMIER BZPower Outstanding Citizen. And proud of it.
  • Part- to full-time employee of a LEGO Art Studio, City Blocks of Tacoma, WA. I say Part- because my hours were cut during the winter lull, but they're picking back up.
I also do freelance web design and graphics art on the side. A few little minor things, not note worthy, are also stuff I do. I also enjoy classic rock music.

So yeah, I hope to receive a warm reception from the BZP denizens. Let's face it, a little guy like me can learn to grow up in a friendly community, can he not? : D

*If by now you haven't realized, I'm intentionally dulling down my accomplishments, since I don't like having an ego. So, if I intentionally say I'm much smaller than I am, I can live happily. Please don't let the ego grow bigger.






In fearful day...
