In other news, I am on vacation from work this week (Like usually since we always have a couple of shut down weeks in July.). I can't say I have any plans really, outside of work on making something for BioniLUG display for BrickFair VA. That and well, driving practice since I would like to try to get my license by November this year.

Speaking of BrickFair VA, I don't think I mention this here yet, but I did buy visitor tickets for that. So you folks might see me on the Saturday visitor day (Assuming nothing comes up.). I try my best to say hello, if I do end up being there.

Alright, that's enough from me. I hope you all have a great day and thank you for taking the time to read this. Talk to you later, BZPers.

General Rambling: Apollo Justice, Life, ect.

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Real Life, Video Games, Random May 26 2014 · 111 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in today and let you all know how things are going lately since it has been awhile.
 
Hm...Where to begin? Well, to start right off, I beat Apollo Justice yesterday. I must say it was fun ride, especially that last case.
 
Really that case alone kind tipped my opinion of the game from being mixed to loving it. I just love how all threads from Apollo's cases all seem to come together for that case. It was great. That and well, I really like the characters in this game (Ema, Prosecutor Gavin, Apollo Justice, ect.).
 
So with that said, where I rank this game in comparison to three other games? Well, let's take a look, folks.
 
- Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations
- Ace Attorney: Apollo Justice
- Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright
- Ace Attorney: Justice For All
 
Hm...I should probably note that I actually would probably Phoenix Wright and Apollo Justice on equal ground (as in they both would been number 2 on my list). But I felt new mechanics introduced in Apollo Justice did give a bit of an edge, so I ended up placing it ahead of Phoenix Wright for that reason.
 
*shrugs* Really its kind hard ranking these games as for most part, I like them all a lot. So yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if how I am ranking these games now suddenly changes if I were to play one of them again.
 
But anyway, with Apollo Justice done, I guess I'll be moving on to Ace Attorney Investigations now. I am not sure if I am going start it today though (Considering its like almost 10 PM here, I don't exactly have time to start it anyway today.). I might wait till the weekend.
 
Alright, moving right along, I guess I'll talk a bit about life here. Uh...Not much is really going on me, beside usual stuff (Go to work, sit on my computer for hours on end, ect.). *shrugs*
 
I guess its worth mentioning that my sister got her license recently (and well, a car. She has Chevrolet Spark.), so I guess I probably be working on getting mines now. Well, actually there is not guessing involved since they bugged me for major of this weekend about it. That being said I hadn't actually gone out driving this weekend. It just...I don't really feel very comfortable about the idea right now. *shrugs*
 
Uh...I was going to ramble about more stuff here, but considering how late it is now, I should probably just call it here. I am sorry if this entry was kind of a dull read. I hope you all have a great day and thank you for taking the time to read this. Talk to you later, BZPers.

22 Years of Life and 4 Years of Employment

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Real Life Apr 20 2014 · 105 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in and share how my B-Day went today.
 
Really there is not much to say. I didn't exactly do anything special. I mostly just treated it like a normal day. Well, I should say a normal weekend day as otherwise I would been at work for most of the day.
 
But anyway, I basically I just watched a lot of Star Trek: The Next Generation today (I am currently on season 3.). So yeah, I wouldn't say it is very productive or eventful day. Not that I am complaining though as I like chill days like this.
 
Hm...What else should I mention? Well, I got some cards from relatives and I also got two gifts from a friend of mines. Uh...I had some cake with my dinner. I unfortunately don't have a picture of it though. It basically looks like an Easter Egg, if you really that curious. Oh, and I have some chocolates too.
 
That's all I really have to say about my birthday. As a side note, yesterday was my 4th anniversary of being employed. I don't really anything say about that, beside obvious that I am rather graceful to still have this job.
 
In other news, it seems that next Saturday (April 26th) my friend and I are going to check out the public day for Philly BrickFest, so that I should be a fun little trip (Its much shorter trip than one to BrickFair VA.). I'll be sure to take a bunch of pictures from that to show you folks. Oh, and if you are also going, I probably be wearing my BZPower shirt, so I probably be easy to notice (Whether or not I can buck up courage to introduce myself to anyone is the real question.).
 
Alright, that's enough from me for today. I apologize if this was kind of boring read. I hope you all have a great day and thank you for taking the time to read this. Talk to you later, BZPers.

General Rambling: Warehouse 13, VLR, Contest, Star Trek, ect.

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random Apr 14 2014 · 61 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in and ramble here for a bit.
 
I'll right off with some BZPower related news. I have start brainstorm some ideas for my next blog hosted contest here; which at this point, I am leaning toward a contest similar to those host in LEGO-Based Creations forums (AKA a MOC based contest, obviously) with possibly a theme involvlng the LEGO Movie. Like I said though, I am still brainstorming stuff about that, so I guess I'll keep you folks post on it.
 
Hm...I just thought of something. Is anyone here good at making banners and stuff? I kind think it might help to have a banner or something for this contest since I know the raffles that I hosted here last time, they didn't get as much entrants as I was hoping (The shirts especially. I still got bunch of small BZPower shirts. I'll have see about dropping those off at Purple Heart or something.). So I thought maybe a banner could help it in some way. *shrugs*
 
Obviously I don't have my ideas on this contest finalized yet, so maybe I am asking this question a bit early. Still I guess it doesn't hurt to ask to at least see if anyone interested in helping me out as I am not really good at graphic design stuff. And well, I would probably be willing to pay you in some way for your help (And obviously I would source you as creator of the banner in the entry.).
 
Alright, moving away from that topic, I thought I should mention while I am here that final season of Warehouse 13 started today (I actually just finished watching it.). I am not going talk in detail about it since I obviously don't want to spoil things for you folks that I might of miss it today as you weren't aware it was coming back. I will say this though, I enjoyed tonight's episode and I am looking forward to what the next five episodes have in store for us (I am hoping the writers can put off an ending that I can like for it.).
 
In other news, last Saturday, I got a copy of VLR since you folks convinced me last entry to get it (I'll admit it didn't take much considering as I was already thinking of getting it. XD). I hadn't play it though and I hadn't finish 999 like I was hoping to last week.
 
This mostly because when I was finishing the Safe Ending last Monday, it kind kept me up too late. So I kind of mentally decided that I should take break from it for my sleep schedule's sake and I was going play it last weekend. But I never did because I got distracted by some spring cleaning then, which I am probably going to do more of this week.
 
So yeah, I am not sure when I am going finish 999. But once I do, I guess I play VLR next. Well, actually maybe I should go back to Apollo Justice. I mean I only have two cases left in that. *shrugs* I have to make up my mind about that later. XD
 
Okay, so I got one more thing ramble about here. What's that? Well, last Saturday (After watching my Pacific Rim DVD)  I decided to take the plunge into Star Trek. I couldn't start from beginning though since it doesn't look like Netflix has first series, so I started with Star Trek: The Next Generation and I must say I am enjoying so far (I have watched at least 12 episodes.). Not much to say beside that, I mean I doubt you folks want to read me rambling in detail about a show from the late 80s.
 
Alright, I rambled enough for today. I apologize if this was kind of boring read. I hope you all have a great day and thank you for taking the time to read this. Talk to you later, BZPers.

So I've been playing 999...

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Video Games Apr 06 2014 · 105 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in really quick before I head to bed to let you all know that I have been playing 999 since some of you said I should last entry (I am taking a break from Apollo Justice. I'll probably get back to it next week.).
 
And well, I am loving it. I definitely don't regret picking up this game. So far I have gotten three endings in it ("Coffin Ending," "Sub Ending," and "Ax Ending") and I am planning on trying and do the "Safe Ending" and "True Ending" after work tomorrow (I plan on doing the "Knife Ending" after those two since my desire for answers is too strong. XD).
 
But yeah, that's what I been doing all this weekend. Not sure what else to say really. Hm...I guess I could share more of my thoughts here on it later after I have gotten all the endings, if you folks want me to. Let me know if you do (Obviously though, I am not going to talk too indepth about it as I don't want spoil anything for anyone.).
 
Well, I should probably head to bed. Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope all have a great day. Talk to you later, BZPers.

March Loot and Rambling

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Video Games, Random Mar 30 2014 · 105 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in and share my loot for this month. So yeah, here's a picture of my loot.
 
Alright, so now you seen, I guess I'll talk about it a little here. Well, the plushie I don't really have anything to say about, beside that I thought it would be cool thing to have.
 
As for Ace Attorney Investigations, I decided to pick that one since chronologically it occurs before new Ace Attorney game on 3DS. That and well, I like Edgeworth, so I thought it would be interesting to see things from his side of the court. Of course, I won't be playing it until I beat Apollo Justice, which actually shouldn't be too much longer since I am on case 3 now.
 
Hm...While I am on subject of Apollo Justice, I must say I am enjoying so far. I mean yes, I do have a bit of mixed feelings about some things in the game. But overall it been a fun experience. Oh, I especially like Apollo, Trucy, Prosecutor Gavin, and Detective Skye.
 
Alright, moving right along, the last thing that I brought this month was a copy of Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva film. My reasoning for buying that has to do with the fact that I kind want to tackle this game series next after I have finished all US released titles for the Ace Attorney series.
 
And well, I didn't find any affordable copies of Professor Layton games yet. But I noticed that film was rather cheap, so I decided to pick it up. I got say I thought the film was pretty good and it makes me kind of want break my promise to myself by continuing play Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask (I brought a eShop copy of that awhile back.). *shrugs*
 
Well, that's pretty much it for this entry. Actually I guess while I am here, I could show this. Its DS game that I found while doing some cleaning.
 
I think I must of brought it last year. I don't recall my reasoning for getting it. Although I think some of you folks might of been talking about it here at one point, so I may decided to get it to see what it about. Of course, I never did check it out. XD
 
I guess I could play it after I done with Ace Attorney series. *shrugs* What you folks think? Just wondering.
 
Alright, I rambled enough for today. I apologize if this was kind of boring read. I hope you all have a great day and thank you for taking the time to read this. Talk to you later, BZPers.

General Rambling: Alien Grenade Launchers, Life, ect.

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Winter Cleaning, Random Mar 10 2014 · 103 views

Hey, folks. It been awhile since I wrote an entry here, so I thought I pop in to give a little update.
 
So yeah, what's new with me? Not much really. Well, I guess it worth mentioning that I finally got around to picking up a digital copy of Necro's album, Alien Grenade Launchers (Which personally I think it is pretty good instrumental album.). I am actually have it playing in background, while I write this.
 
Oh, and I been doing some house cleaning lately since I want make some space for some LEGO stuff (Mostly my Lord of Rings sets that I got like over a year ago, which I still have yet to open.) and well, I been meaning to get rid of some old junk (Boxes, old clothes, ect.).
 
At the moment, I am working my way through some old school stuff (Which I probably going to scan a lot of it since for some reason, I think it would be useful to keep old Math and Science stuff on my computer. *shrugs*). Oh, and I finally start to use this bookshelf for its intended purpose. Still need to transfer my Bionicle books out of Shoebox Bookshelf though. But well, it is getting there. Maybe by end of this month (If I keep at it), it will actually be presentable to show here. XD
 
Oh, and I found a couple of books that I should probably read. They are: "Sphere," by Michael Crichton & "Star Wars: Survivor's Quest," by Timothy Zahn. Not sure about Star Wars book though since my knowledge of Star Wars Expanded Universe is very limited and I know little to nothing about New Republic era. So yeah, not sure if starting my journey into Star Wars Expanded Universe with this book is a good idea or not. 
 
In gaming related news, all I been playing lately is Trials and Tribulations on my 3DS (I am currently on case 3, court day 1.).
 
Hm...Speaking of games, anyone want an alpha key for A Hat in Time? I got a extra Steam key, so I thought I should ask if anyone wants it. If so, PM me, I guess.
 
Alright, that's all I really have to talk about. Thanks for taking to read this, folks. I hope you all have a great day. Talk to later, BZPers.

Godzilla

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random Feb 25 2014 · 112 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in really quick to share a link of the trailer for new Godzilla movie, which I got to admit that I am rather excited for (I am not a fan of them using New York as the setting though.).
 
So yeah, here's the trailer that came out today:
 

 
So any thoughts from you folks? Does anyone share my hype for this film?
 
In other news, I got a LEGO related package on its way to me. I can't wait get it. Hm...Speaking of LEGO, I am probably going end up playing around with my LEGO collection this weekend since I been feeling a lot of creative energy lately.
 
Alright, that's all I have to talk about. Thanks for taking the time to read this, folks. I hope you all have great day. Talk to you later, BZPers.

D&D Results Thing

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in BZPower, Random Feb 25 2014 · 97 views

I thought I might as well join in on this blog fad, so here's my results:
 You Are A:
Neutral Good Human Wizard/Sorcerer (1st/1st Level)

Ability Scores:
Strength- 8
Dexterity- 10
Constitution- 9
Intelligence- 14
Wisdom- 12
Charisma- 9

Alignment:
Neutral Good- A neutral good character does the best that a good person can do. He is devoted to helping others. He works with kings and magistrates but does not feel beholden to them. Neutral good is the best alignment you can be because it means doing what is good without bias for or against order. However, neutral good can be a dangerous alignment when it advances mediocrity by limiting the actions of the truly capable.

Race:
Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Primary Class:
Wizards- Wizards are arcane spellcasters who depend on intensive study to create their magic. To wizards, magic is not a talent but a difficult, rewarding art. When they are prepared for battle, wizards can use their spells to devastating effect. When caught by surprise, they are vulnerable. The wizard's strength is her spells, everything else is secondary. She learns new spells as she experiments and grows in experience, and she can also learn them from other wizards. In addition, over time a wizard learns to manipulate her spells so they go farther, work better, or are improved in some other way. A wizard can call a familiar- a small, magical, animal companion that serves her. With a high Intelligence, wizards are capable of casting very high levels of spells.

Secondary Class:
Sorcerers- Sorcerers are arcane spellcasters who manipulate magic energy with imagination and talent rather than studious discipline. They have no books, no mentors, no theories just raw power that they direct at will. Sorcerers know fewer spells than wizards do and acquire them more slowly, but they can cast individual spells more often and have no need to prepare their incantations ahead of time. Also unlike wizards, sorcerers cannot specialize in a school of magic. Since sorcerers gain their powers without undergoing the years of rigorous study that wizards go through, they have more time to learn fighting skills and are proficient with simple weapons. Charisma is very important for sorcerers; the higher their value in this ability, the higher the spell level they can cast.
Detailed Results:

Alignment:
Lawful Good ----- XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (29)
Neutral Good ---- XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (29)
Chaotic Good ---- XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (17)
Lawful Neutral -- XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (27)
True Neutral ---- XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (27)
Chaotic Neutral - XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (15)
Lawful Evil ----- XXXXXXXXXXXXXX (14)
Neutral Evil ---- XXXXXXXXXXXXXX (14)
Chaotic Evil ---- XX (2)

Law & Chaos:
Law ----- XXXXXXXXXXXXX (13)
Neutral - XXXXXXXXXXXXX (13)
Chaos --- X (1)

Good & Evil:
Good ---- XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (16)
Neutral - XXXXXXXXXXXXXX (14)
Evil ---- X (1)

Race:
Human ---- XXXXXXXXXXXXXX (14)
Dwarf ---- XXXXXXXX (8)
Elf ------ XXXXXXXX (8)
Gnome ---- XXXXXXXX (8)
Halfling - XXXXXX (6)
Half-Elf - XXXXXXXXXXX (11)
Half-Orc - XXXXXX (6)

Class:
Barbarian - (-8)
Bard ------ XXXX (4)
Cleric ---- (0)
Druid ----- (-2)
Fighter --- (0)
Monk ------ (-27)
Paladin --- (-21)
Ranger ---- (-4)
Rogue ----- (0)
Sorcerer -- XXXXXXXX (8)
Wizard ---- XXXXXXXX (8)

Well, those are my results. No idea what to think of them since I know next to nothing about D&D.
