Announcing BIONIFIGHT ULTIMATE: DRIFT FORCE

Posted by Voltex , in BZPower Aug 29 2014 · 181 views

It all began with Bionifight in 2007. Then came Bionifight 2: Madness Returns! in 2011, followed by Bionifight 3: Madness Returns Again! and Bionifight 4: Hyper Fighting, both also released in that same year. The first three, hosted by Fighty (with help from myself for the latter two) as well as the fourth, hosted just by me, are now referred to as "classic" Bionifight.

In January of this year, Bionifight Ultimate was released. It was a game changer in every respect; Ultimate Weapons replaced Special Weapons (until the latter were added back in later), the round structure was modified, and perhaps the biggest addition of all: fan created content. Bionifight Ultimate took every single issue with the older games and fixed, changed, or removed what it had to. It was, in essence, a reboot of the series; and it is for that reason that this game is titled as a sequel to Bionifight Ultimate without reference to the others.

The earliest concepts for this game had it split into two topics as Bionifight 6 Ultimate and Bionifight 6 Classic, with the former continuing the previous game and the latter bringing back what had not been seen since Bionifight 4: Hyper Fighting. But then I realized that to divide the two would, in fact, be a step backwards - if I was to bring more classic elements back, they needed to be integrated into what I had already set in place. Thus I set about creating my third addition to the Bionifight franchise, and what I came up with was Bionifight Ultimate: Drift Force. It fixes every single issue that was present in Bionifight Ultimate, while retaining what worked and, of course, adding a few new things. You'll notice far less clutter from the start with this game - and that fan created content, which contributed to much of the cluttered and overcomplicated nature of Bionifight Ultimate, has been streamlined.
So here we are - the sixth game in the Bionifight seies as a whole, and the second entry in the Bionifight Ultimate reboot. I hope you enjoy - and if you're wondering why I chose the subtitle of Drift Force... well, if you think back to why I first named Bionifight Ultimate, you might have already guessed. But even if you haven't, all you need to do is look below.

AMA: The Answers You Seek

Posted by Voltex , in Life, BZPower Aug 05 2014 · 74 views

do you dream of farm animals kidnapping a 2x2 brick named samantha whilst wearing a silly hat


I do not. I do, however, dream of jungle animals eating a 4x4 brick named Bartholomew whilst wearing a fedora.

How often do you dream about farm animals?


I usually donate my dreams of farm animals to Sumiki, so not very often.

This will be multiple questions:
A: Do you dream of farm animals?
B: EXPLAIN THAT TVT BLOG POST AND WHEN IT HAPPENS
C: What chapter are you up to in the epic?
D: All your base are belong to us?
E:What are your opinions on the new chapter of RWBY?
(Yeah in A And D I was bored. =P)


A: Please note my answer to Luroka.
B: That was a simple test to rile some of you up, should I ever decide to truly dedicate myself to re-writing that entire thing.
C: I am currently up to Chapter 5, although I am also in the midst of re-working the outline and therefore the writing has been delayed by a little while. I expect that I shall be up to Chapter 6 or 7 by the end of the week regardless.
D: Absolutely not. They belong to me... as do all of yours.
E: Unfortunately, I am so far not very impressed with Volume 2 of RWBY.

You know, I wasn't sure if anyone really caught on to my silly question until now...

Anywho!

Have you seen a 2x2 lego brick named Samantha?


I have not. I have, however, seen one named Bartholomew.

do you dream about nose hairs


All of the time.

Why world has not explode from Mario, Sonic, Mega Man and Pac-Man being in the same game????


Because it had already adjusted to Mario and Sonic being in the same game, and while Mega Man being there might cause the world to explode, Pac-Man's total lameness unfortunately cancels it out.

Opinion on possible return of bionicle?


Cautiously optimistic.

do you often consume bacon marinated in pickle juice


That's gross and you should be ashamed of yourself.

am a voltex are in why


Much confusion, such grammar

It is name change time again

Posted by Voltex , in BZPower May 19 2014 · 194 views

There are a few options that I'm considering right now; the top three are
 
-Voltex
-i, Voltex
-Voltex Oblige
 
So nothing terribly interesting as far as changes go this time around. I think the first or third options are more likely, but we'll see. I do like the idea of sticking to the Bravely Default theme for awhile longer in some fashion, though.

TEASER #1: Bionicle Mafia: Extraction

Posted by Voltex , in BZPower May 18 2014 · 114 views

Bionicle Mafia Book 2: Extraction
Teaser #1
“I think he’s waking up.”
 
“Well, why don’t you just yell it louder? I’m sure some of the Matoran down the hall didn’t hear you.”
 
“Was that for real?”
 
“No, it wasn’t.”
 
Voltex sighed, trying to block the voices out – to no avail, unfortunately. Sighing, he blinked his eyes opened and blearily sat up, ignoring the pain that lanced through him. “Where am I?”
 
“BZ-Koro General Hospital,” the first voice said. “I think you’re lucky to be alive.”
 
“I don’t feel very lucky,” Voltex muttered. “Who are you?”
 
“I’m Xonar,” said the second voice, as a black and purple Ba-Matoran (jealously twinged somewhere in his chest) stepped into view. “The stupid one behind me is called ‘Phantom Terror’, although we call him PT for short.”
 
“I’m not stupid,” PT protested, also moving into view. He was clad in dark blue and gold armor – a Ce-Matoran.
 
Remembering how the last Ce-Matoran that he had encountered had ended up, Voltex shuddered, deciding to move past the introductions. “You know who I am, obviously – where is everyone else?”
 
“Either in recovery or meeting in the lobby,” Xonar told him. “Do you remember what happened?”
 
“Of course I do,” Voltex snapped. “My ride off this stupid island exploded.”
 
“BZ-Koro isn’t that bad,” PT protested. “I think it’s quite nice!”
 
“I’m not you,” Voltex growled, moving to get off the bed.
 
“Whoa, whoa, hold on there, buddy,” Xonar said frantically, pushing him back. “Don’t start moving too quickly! Your friends told us you’d already been out for awhile before the explosion and now you’ve been out for twelve hours-”
 
Twelve hours?!” Voltex screeched, smacking the other Ba-Matoran’s hands away, “That’s half a day!”
 
“Yeah, it is,” Xonar agreed, “which means you’re probably too weak to stand right now.”
 
“I defy ‘probably’,” Voltex said.
 
“Alright,” Xonar said, shrugging. “Then you are definitely too weak to stand right now.”
 
“Are you a medical professional?” Voltex snapped.
 
“No,” Xonar conceded, “but Taka Nuvia is. Well, either that or she’s really good at faking professional documents.”
 
“Whatever,” Voltex muttered, flopping back onto the bed with a defeated sigh.
 
“That reminds me,” PT said brightly, turning to the filing cabinet in the corner and rifling through it. “Somebody came by earlier with a parcel for you.”
 
Suspicion pricked at his mind. Voltex mentally swatted it away. “Who?”
 
“Don’t know,” PT said, shrugging and handing him the package. “He didn’t give a name. He looked weird, though.”
 
“Yeah,” Xonar agreed. “Almost like he’d been put together with scraps from the junkyard....”
 
Oh, no... Voltex thought, staring at the package in his hands. Is this a bomb? Is it poison? Maybe it’s a poisonous bomb. Or maybe it’ll throw a knife in between my eyes. Is the paper razor sharp?
 
“Are you going to open it?” Xonar asked. “He said to tell you that it’s safe and that he likes you too much to... uh... ‘mess with you’.”
 
“Well isn’t that a relief,” Voltex muttered, dripping with sarcasm, turning the package over with shaking hands. “Well... here goes nothing.”
 
He ripped it open, tossing the spare piece of paper aside as he reached inside and grabbed the letter, which was wrapped around something that felt suspiciously familiar.
 
“...could you give me a minute? Alone?” he asked. “This... uh... this might be private.”
 
“Of course,” Xonar said, grabbing PT and dragging him to the door. “Let us know when you’re ready again.”
 
Voltex waited until the door had clicked shut behind the two Matoran before returning his attention to the paper in his hands, unfolding it and flinching as a gun fell onto his lap. Frowning, he checked the chamber – two bullets were inside.
 
What is going on here? He wondered.
 
He grabbed the letter and glanced it over – it was more of a note, with only four words:
 
Use it wisely. – Xaeraz

Post your thoughts in the comments below! This scene debuts two of our newcomers for Book 2, as well as Voltex waking up from... something. 
 
Somewhere down the line I will reveal one of the other points of view for Book 2 to you all; at this point in time, I believe the total counter is six, although some POVs receive more focus than others.

An Update (and 700 entries!)

Posted by Voltex , in BZPower May 14 2014 · 75 views

To celebrate me wasting 700 blog entries worth of my time, I've decided to give you a quick update on my next epic and another short teaser from it.
 
The update:
 
I have changed the series title to simply "Bionicle Mafia". Makes it a bit less of a mouthful.
Following up from that, the title of Book 2 is...
 
Bionicle Mafia Book 2: Extraction
 
And now, of course, a quick scene:
 
---
 
The Ba-Matoran glanced down to his right arm – he had been fiddling with the Repulsor Arm again. Clearing his throat, he said: “It’s called the Repulsor Arm. JiMing – one of the Matoran that was at the conference – built it before he was killed. It’s... difficult to explain, but basically, I can do this.”
 
Raising his arm to the sky, Voltex fired a beam straight into the air before lowering his arms and crossing them, giving a shrug to Canis, who, alarmed, had taken a step back and had a hand resting upon his holster.
 
“Don’t worry,” Voltex said. “It’s like... I can control it. It fires when I want it to. It’s wired right into me.”
 
“It’s pretty advanced,” Canis noted warily.
 
“Yeah,” he agreed. “It’s just a prototype, though – the blueprints JiMing had... it’s supposed to be armored on the outside, probably to protect the circuitry and everything. But it’s worked well enough for me this far.”
 
Canis nodded. “While we’re on the topic... I’d like to ask you what happened. We’ve been trying to get into the conference hall for several days now – needless to say, we have been unable to.”
 
“Why did it take you so long to get here?” Voltex asked, ignoring the question.
 
“We had... other issues to attend to,” Canis said, before prompting, “the conference?”
 
“Right...” Voltex said, trailing off. “Basically, Xaeraz seized control, and a Makuta blocked the entirety of the conference hall with shadow from the outside. He forced us to partake in this ‘game’ after killing all but twenty-three of the Matoran at the conference – five of us were traitors selected by Xaeraz to kill the others.”
 
“And that is why there are only seven of you now,” Canis guessed.
 
“Yeah... we had to execute each of the traitors, and we got some wrong,” Voltex continued. “But there are more survivors – although none of them are nice. One of the traitors had designed this device that helped him come back to life, and he’s gone missing since then. The other two – Makuta Luroka and Sumiki – disappeared before we could execute them, right after the shadows came down. All three of them are probably still on BZ-Koro, but... where they are is anyone’s guess.”
