Return of the Flowchart

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Jan 25 2015 · 76 views

I made it even simpler this time

Posted Image

I was going to go with "Has Lego officially announced it", but then I remembered those BZP articles on stuff found through "guessing URLs" which apparently don't count?

Aside from that one exception though the policy is really, truly, unbelievably, extremely simple.

Feel free to use this handy image when teling people why you're closing their topics or whatever, staff, I won't even ask for anything in return


Bravely Second + Pokken Tournament

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Jan 23 2015 · 55 views

A little more information has come in on Bravely Second, mainly confirmation that Edea has been rebuilding Eternia and working with Agnes to create peace. It looks like "judging" the Asterisk Holders means meeting them, hearing their problems, and deciding who to help.

We also have some more info (and better images!) of some of the new Jobs, so I'll update the Asterisk Guides later today.

Also, the Pokken Tournament stream was this morning, and the game is looking great! Three new Pokemon were announced as playable: Pikachu, Gardevoir, and Suicune. A fighter select screen showed these three along with the previously confirmed Lucario and Machamp, and while this presumably is not the full roster, it is curious to not see Blaziken, who was featured with Lucario in the teaser clip so long ago.

Pokken Tournament will, despite being an arcade game, use a console-style controller with L and R and B and X and Y and A and all that, so maybe they will bring it to a console in the future! The game also features Support Pokemon you can call into battle to aid you (Emolga, Snivy, Lapras, and Fennekin have been shown), and there's more information (and footage) regarding the specific systems. It looks like each fighter has a gauge that, when full, can be used to enter a super mode, which is Mega Evolution for those Pokemon capable of it.

Late January and mid February, people will be able to test out the game in certain arcades, so I'm looking forward to hearing what people's impressions are. I'm actually really psyched for this game and dearly hope it makes it out of Japan.


A Working Understanding of the Keyblade

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Jan 22 2015 · 36 views

Because I woke up today and decided "you know what forget homework I'm going to write a nearly 4,000 word essay about a fictional weapon."

...It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Anyway, like the title says, it's me rambling about the Keyblade and how I assume it to work, plus a few mini-theories sprinkled throughout. It does contain a lot of spoilers, and some of the jargon and situations referenced aren't fully elaborated on so it might not make complete sense if you're unfamiliar with Kingdom Hearts. (I mean it might not even make complete sense if you are familiar with it but you know what I mean.)

So yeah, that's my contribution to the world for today, maybe tomorrow I'll do something that actually benefits society!

Probably not.


I Must Motivate Myself to Write

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Jan 20 2015 · 130 views

I decided to make a content block for my blog with links to my library and sub-libraries (it’s on the left under the Asterisk Guide if you’re curious), and it got me thinking about how I haven’t been writing so much lately. I have been making slow progress on Divine Strength and The Kaita Legacy, and I’ve thought of plenty of ideas, and I guess there was that no context crossover, but the last time I actually posted a work here on BZP was…let’s see…September?

I want to try to get myself posting stories here more frequently again. My first thought was going through my FFFC entries and rewriting them all a week or two at a time, or maybe writing new stories inspired by either the prompt for each of those stories or what each of those stories ended up as. Or maybe I could do a weekly blog entry advertising the new story (which I’ll probably do anyway) and also asking for any suggestions people might have for next week? I could also try tackling that list of ideas I have—I mean, several of them are non-Bionicle, but we have the OTC Forum; and a lot of them are ideas for larger stories, but I could either play with them in short story format or try to commit to writing a chapter a week.

Of course, I should probably use this desire instead for writing Divine Strength. :P Also I’m not sure I really can keep a weekly schedule, especially with taking an actual Fiction Writing class again this semester (and I might post those stories in OTC, I’ll have to think about it). Biweekly like the FFFC would probably be easier, but I still don’t know, and there’s always the possibility of doing this monthly but I feel like that’s not exactly frequent. But, I don’t know, maybe this is an area where I really should try pushing myself…

I guess part of the dilemma is that, while there’s still a lot of Bionicle fanfiction I want to write, I also want to try writing stuff that’s not Bionicle, and I want to post it here but I’m not sure OTC is a very busy place. I feel like this is obnoxious, but I want to gauge my chances of getting feedback on any of this stuff. I’ll post my current list of ideas (in spoilers because there are…a few), if anyone has any comments on these ideas or any of the possible methods mentioned above, I’d appreciate it.

So a new article popped up showing off Edea's new look, saying she's the leader of the Imperial Guards and will be one of the main characters of Bravely Second (though it doesn't specify if this means she'll be playable). Also there's something about judging the Asterisk Holders.

Pretty neat.


Asterisk Guide: Patissier

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Jan 16 2015 · 103 views

Asterisk Holder: Angelo W. Panettone

Posted Image

Origin: Bravely Second

Was It In Bravely Default?: No

Overview: This Job focuses on debuffing, and is said to be capable of inflicting ailments and lowering enemies' stats. Specific attacks seen thus far are "Charm Cake", which charms all enemies, and "Pie Meteor", which throws pies at an enemy until their stats go down.

Personal Thoughts: This is going to be one of the best games ever.

Update 1/23: New Magnolia image, role revealed and added to Overview


I Think I Figured It Out

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Jan 15 2015 · 77 views

For some reason I'm pretty optimistic about Magnolia as protagonist of Bravely Second I wonder why that


Posted Image

Isn't that sorta like

Yeah that might have something to do with it


Back to School

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Jan 12 2015 · 77 views

My first class was cancelled, which would be good if it weren't Japanese.

When I entered my second (though technically first?) class, someone came up and hugged me as I was entering the doorway, which honestly is a nice enough way to start a semester.

Then I went to the nearby shopping center to kill three hours until my next class, which was almost three hours long itself.

It's an interesting start 7/10 will be optimistic.


So That's a Wrap on II.5

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Jan 10 2015 · 110 views

Well, I just beat Kingdom Hearts II, and since I did entries for the other pieces of II.5 I figured I’d do one for this too. This is my fifth time playing the game, so I don’t really have that many new feelings, there were just a few miscellaneous things I thought of.

(Contains spoilers for II, coded, and 3D)


And now I want to replay 3D. I really shouldn’t, though, with school starting, and wanting to do all the extra stuff in II and BBS, and new games coming out in the coming months, and that game from months ago I bought but haven’t finished, and that new copy of Mega Man Star Force I bought because it was $7 and I am weak, and… *sigh*

Anyway, II.5 is great, I recommend it. I have a feeling it’s going to influence my next name change again…


Asterisk Guide: Exorcist

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Jan 10 2015 · 25 views

Asterisk Holder: Geist (warning he's super creepy)

Posted Image
(Magnolia, on the far right; unfortunately I can't find a better image yet)

Origin: Bravely Second

Was It In Bravely Default?: No

Overview: The Exorcist’s ability has been translated as “Never Happened”, and allows them to undo turns. This can be done by setting HP, MP, or BP of a target back to what it was one to three turns ago. This abilities are said to have a fairly low MP cost.

Personal Thoughts: Sounds like a super broken hybrid of Time Mage and White Mage. Not that I’m complaining (though Geist is creepy as heck and will haunt my nightmares). Well, okay, part of me wonders if this Job will be a little redundant, but Square is going to add it to the demo out now in Japan, so hopefully we’ll soon be able to see how it functions and how it sets itself apart.
