EVERYONE I NEED YOU TO HELP ME THANK JMJ (+Smash Files 67)

JMJ is legend
Posted Image

I thought I was receiving a GCN Controller Adapter, not that and a special NYCC limited edition transparent Tahu Mask! *shakes fist*
But still!

I thank you very much. Now I can play Smash Bros. the way that it was meant to be played, and I have my first little bit of Bionicle 2015 as well! TBH I'm really excited about the mask because I didn't think I'd actually ever see one in person, let alone OWN it.

Now to fight the urge to open it until I can assemble all six 2015 Toa together.

This is gonna be tough. ;_;

Thank you again!

6 Years

Posted by Strange Festive Voltex , in BZP Library, BZPower, Smash Files, Games & Trivia Dec 22 2014 · 117 views

So. I have been on BZPower as a member for six years. First off, to celebrate, here is a little something for Extermination.

I thought I'd go over some of the milestones from the past six years in this entry, that way I can never do it again.

2008
-I joined the site on December 22. Obviously.

2009
-In January I released my first comedy, Vultraz's Diner. To this day, the character Vultraz is near and dear to my heart.
-I entered my first contest on BZPower (a BBC contest), and obviously did not win. MOCs are not my strong suit.
-I also played The BZPower Challenge 2 in the Games & Trivia forum, almost a year and a half before I would return to the forum to play any of the Mafia games.

2010
-I joined the Comedies Critics Club.
-I changed my name for the first time (I don't count my name change in 2009), and I have been swapping names ever since.
-I hosted my first Mafia game, Bionicle Mafia 31: Mind Games. It was a disaster.
-I released Tahu vs. Tahu - my crowning achievement in the Comedies forum. While I might have started my career on BZPower with Vultraz's Diner, it is Tahu vs. Tahu that is nearest and dearest to my heart. Even now I long to bring it back, and if I can find a way to make it work with a new storyline taking place in 2015, then I will. I absolutely will. It actually released on December 19th - whether it is coincidence or not, 19 is my favorite number.

2011
-I helped to host the first (and last) ever Comedies Awards.
-Tahu vs. Tahu landed on the Hot Topics list several times.
-I became a premier member, and got my blog.
-The forums went offline for six months; when they returned, I was one of the members who returned - and actually stayed.
-I became interested in MLP right in the middle of the MLP craze, and was inspired to create three horrible, horrible display names. Ugh.

2012
-I finally hosted another Mafia game; Mafia III: The Cult. It would go on to be the first in a "Mafia III" series that has, so far, lasted four games.
-I revived the Comedies Critics Club, taking charge.
-I released How to Be a Hero, my second-most popular comedy after Tahu vs. Tahu. It eventually sort of quietly died off thanks to a lack of updates from myself, and the topic is just a mess now thanks to the coding errors that hit BZPower around this time last year. I had always wanted to re-write it in prose, but I don't really see the point anymore. It'd be too much time that I could spend on something else.
-I completed Tahu vs. Tahu after four seasons and almost two years;I should have left it at that. Regretfully, I allowed myself to follow through on the horrible idea of a sequel; The AfterWords was released that December. The AfterWords eventually ended after two seasons and less than a year, although the last few chapters were lost in the October 2013 Hacking and have not been reposted. I consider The AfterWords mostly non-canon.
-I also helped to organize the first (out of two) Comedies "Expos", where authors gathered to tease projects that they were working on.

2013
-I hosted Bionicle Mafia III: By the Numbers, which until very recently had the fastest signups in Mafia history.
-I started the Smash Files blog post series, detailing my thoughts on all news and other information regarding Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U.
-Together with Portalfig, I co-hosted the Darkest Days Trilogy of Mafia games, celebrating the fact that Bionicle Mafia X: Darkest Dawn was the 50th main series Mafia game on BZPower. It was also the first time anyone had co-hosted a Mafia game since Mind Games.
-Portalfig and I also did most of the work on the BZP Mafia Wiki, although it has since become outdated thanks to a lack of updates.

2014
-I got featured on the front page for two of my epics (Isolation and Extraction), which is very cool.
-I became a POBZPC, earning the orange (and promptly changed my name to "Sir Voltex the Blue" just to confuse everybody). The name change did its job quite nicely.
-I finally relaunched Bionifight as Bionifight Ultimate; it is the largest topic in Games & Trivia, and the biggest game in the series.
-I hosted Bionicle Mafia XIX: The Voltex Constant, which beat By the Numbers to hold the NEW record for the fastest signups in Mafia history.
-I also feel like this year, I became more active in the larger community of BZPower itself, rather than just sticking to one or two subforums like glue; I've popped in all over the place.

2015
-What is coming? Well... I will admit that I've never hosted an RPG before..... ;)

guess what arrived today :D (Smash File 66 oh god)

It is so beautiful

Even better, though, is that I still have two days to return the black controller to EB Games and get a refund from them! Everything is working out, huzzah! This is also the part of the show where I publicly thank JMJ for the GCN adapter that he's sent to me, even though it hasn't arrived yet (whenever it does there will, of course, be an entry to celebrate the momentous occasion).

Anyway, that's all for now!

The Nintendo Conspiracy is slowly being overcome!

RUMOR: Amiibo Discontinued (Smash Files 65)

Posted by Strange Festive Voltex , in Smash Files Dec 07 2014 · 221 views

Posted Image
Not all Amiibo, mind you. But three in particular. Those three are the Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, and Marth - rumors circulate the internet hinting that these three might be gone from shelves forever once the current stock is out. Now, had I been thinking, they would have been the first three I purchased; however, I was not thinking, and so only Wii Fit Trainer was included in my first set. That said, at the first sound of shortages, I rushed online to look for both Marth and Villager.

I might never get the GCN adapter, but if my goal is to collect every Smash Amiibo, then I need to be on the top of my game. I managed to find Villager and Marth on ebay for decent prices (read: no more than two dollars above regular, before shipping), and they arrived yesterday alongside Kirby and Fox (I bought the latter two from a retail site though). So, this situation is obviously frustrating; I don't understand why Nintendo wouldn't even stock enough Amiibo figures and GCN adapters to at least last through the end of the year.

Whatever

It'll be money back in my pocket when I return my GCN controller

So Walmart.ca has the Gamecube controller adapter back in stock! Hurray!

...but they don't accept Paypal and I lack a credit card. Back to the drawing board.

In other news, if any of you live in Canada and do have a credit card, I will gladly pay you for both the adapter and shipping if you're willing to buy it and then ship it to me once it arrives. :)

My First Amiibo! (Smash Files 63)

Posted by Strange Festive Voltex , in Smash Files Nov 24 2014 · 104 views

Posted Image
The first step in my journey to collect every single Super Smash Bros. Amiibo figure begins! Mario and Wii Fit Trainer arrived in the mail today, and Samus is currently en route. I must say, I'm rather impressed; while in pictures the plastic "cast" on the Wii Fit Trainer's foot looked terrible, in person it's not actually that distracting. Would the figure be better without it? Absolutely - that goes without question. But it is not entirely detrimental to the design.

As for Mario, he's a whole different story... in a good way! The detail on his figure is very nice, and I especially like the fireball. Of note is that his pants have actually had a yellowish tint painted on to represent the glow from the fireball; that's an extremely neat detail that I don't think I've seen in a toy before. If we could see more Amiibo figures like Mario's in the future, I certainly would not complain!

Down below I've included a picture of both Amiibo figures; as I get more, I shall post my progress. Once I have obtained all of the first wave, I shall stack them up against each other and determine my favourites.

Posted Image

Yes, that is the shadow of my head.

Posted Image

So - in the comments below you can recommend which Amiibo figures I should try and get next! I'm keeping them in their cases for now (my hope at the moment is to have a complete collection of unopened Super Smash Bros. Amiibos), but that might change at a later date? We'll see.

THE NINTENDO CONSPIRACY (Smash Files 62)

Posted by Strange Festive Voltex , in Smash Files Nov 21 2014 · 152 views

Allow me to direct you to the following image:

Posted Image

You see that thing in the back? That is the Wii U. I own this.
You see that thing in the front? That is the special Smash Edition Gamecube controller, released today alongside Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
You see that thing in the middle? That is the special adapter, required for using the above Gamecube controller.

I do not have this.

I walked into EB Games today, in my little ugly stupid town where everyone hates Nintendo, and purchased the Gamecube controller when I discovered that the special controller bundle was out of stock (here? seriously?). But there were no more controller adapters. Curious, I asked the guy behind the counter when I could expect to see them back in.

And he told me that I should not get my hopes up - that Nintendo had apparently contacted their corporate office recently and informed them that no more of the Gamecube controller adapters would be sold. They would not be restocked.

EXCUSE ME?!

So now, my journey begins - I have 30 days to find a controller adapter and purchase it before I must return my Smash Edition Gamecube controller. An epic quest to play Smash Bros. the way that it's meant to be played... it starts now.

In other news, I now own Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

THE ULTIMATE TROLL (Smash Files 60) [spoilers]

Posted by Strange Festive Voltex , in Smash Files Nov 06 2014 · 143 views

At this point we're on the verge of the release for Smash Wii U, so if you don't know the entire roster at this point, this is on you.

Duck Hunt Profile
Posted Image
Species: Dog + Duck
Series: Duck Hunt
First Appearance: Duck Hunt (NES, 1985)

Favourite Appearance: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS, 2014)
Party: 1st
Known For: Being old, being annoying, being the ultimate troll, being the only four-legged fighter in SSB4, being a dog, being a duck, being both a dog and a duck
Excitement Factor: 8/10 - I've had ample opportunities to use Duck Hunt by now (which still doesn't make any sense as a fighter name but whatever), and I really enjoy it. In fact, I enjoy it enough to not care about the fact that this is yet another character that nobody was asking for (I mean seriously, everybody wants Ridley but we get characters like Wii Fit Trainer and Duck Hunt instead?). Anyway.

And so they soared through the open air, as I tumbled in the dirt below them.

We're not teaching university science classes here, we're playing a text based fighting game where the objective is to beat your opponents into oblivion.

Get back in your grave, you.

*Slaps with tombstone*

Also, what pay are you gonna get as iBrow's slave?

Chro suddenly developed arachnophobia.

explain it with a convoluted quadruple negative.

Although everyone should go sign up for that game now.
And tell your friends.
And your moms.
Maybe not that last bit.

Poor Lhikan. Demoted from riding on top of an awesome Rahi to being packed in with a bunch of batteries as an afterthought.

However, this does not mean we no longer want to kill the rest of you for evading death. In fact, we would like to destroy you all, because we feel like it and we're the bad guys, the latter of which we only just realised.

...You guys didn't realize we were the villains all along?

You thought I was a good guy? ? ?

None of us are actually competent. We run around like headless chickens, if headless chickens were capable of wielding assault rifles and broadswords.

Man
I'm gonna bluff you guys so hard you won't even know that I'm bluffing
Or maybe you will
Except
It'll be a quadruple bluff



How is Chro's arms still on fire though? I bet Burnmad has something to do with it.

It's linked to Voltex's everlasting, endless fury.

MY RETRIBUTION IS SWIFT AND VICIOUS, LIKE A WET KOALA STRAPPED TO A METEOR
