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

Looks Like My Vacation Is...Over

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Video Games, Random Jan 05 2015 · 150 views

Hey, folks. As per tradition, I thought since today is last day of my holiday break that I would pop in and give a little update on how it went (Admittedly I did work on 29th to 31st, so I wasn't off really the whole week.). For the most part, I would say I had a pretty good break from work. Although it wasn't very productive break really.

I managed to finished Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth. I thought overall the game was pretty good and it makes wish Ace Attorney Investigations 2 was translated in English as I would love to play it. Also I must say that game's final boss have got to be toughest boss I have ever faced in the Ace Attorney series so far.

Speaking of Ace Attorney series, I started Dual Destinies this week. Although I didn't get very far in it. I just finished the first case and start a little bit of second case. So yeah, I am not very far in it. I also have a bit mixed opinions about some of changes in it (Such as Phoenix's voice). *shrugs* I am keeping an open mind though and I still having fun with the cases, so those mixed opinions are minor annoyances at best.

In other gaming news, I unfortunately didn't manage to play any Pokemon this week or last week (My little brother is now ahead of me in the game and he's only had it for like 10 days now. [I brought him a 3DS and Aqua Sapphire as a holiday gift.].). I did get play some Smash though and I did like two online matches. The first one I got pretty much destroyed in. Second one though I didn't do that bad in. I definitely need to train myself some more though.

Hm...I would mention how much I spent on Steam Winter Sale here. But I kind don't want think about that. XD Let's just say I took advantage of it and be done with it. Also I wish I realized earlier that Winter Trading Cards expired at the end of sale as now I have a bunch cards in my inventory wasting space (I can't delete them.). I feel like Steam needs a trash can in their inventory system.

But anyway, outside gaming stuff, I managed to watch a bit more Star Trek: Voyager. I am currently on Season 5, Episode 24. And well, I been enjoying the show (Captain Janeaway is pretty awesome.).

Beside that, I managed to pick up some BIONICLE 2015 sets (Protectors of Fire, Water, Ice, and Earth). I hadn't build them though. Also I got the first three Books of the Legend of Korra on DVD (I got that as a gift from a friend.). I plan on binge watching them all after I get Book 4 on DVD.

Oh, and I did some cleaning in the basement. It still a long way from being perfect, but I think I made good progress on it this week, so I am happy. I would like to get fish tank down here clean out by this month as it would be nice to have some fishes again. So hopefully even though I am going back to work now, I'll be able to find the time to do that. We'll just have to wait and see.

So yeah, that's pretty much all eventful things happened during my holiday break from work. Like I say earlier, I wasn't very productive. I would ramble more here, but I don't want take anymore of your time. That and well, its late here and I should probably go bed.

So thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have a great day today. I'll talk you later, BZPers.

- JMJ 2015

P.S. - For those wondering, yes, the title of this entry is KH II reference. I am actually playing little bit of KH II now as I write this as I realized a bit too late that I had forgot to play it during my break. XD

On Holiday Break...

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Real Life, Video Games, Random Dec 23 2014 · 204 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in today and let you all know that I am on holiday break from work now. That's pretty cool. It means i have more time to check out stuff here (Such as BIONICLE 2015 stuff, which I only really taken a brief view of.) and do other stuff (Video Games, ect.).

But yeah, you might see me around here a bit more. *shrugs* To be honest, I don't really have definite plans for my free time this week. Like right now, I just been watching a bunch Star Trek: Voyager on Netflix (I just finished season 3 and I am currently on season 4, episode 4.). XD

Hm...I probably should continue my Pokemon journey through Omega Ruby, which I hadn't played since the week...my grandmother passed away...

But yeah, uh... I probably should continue that. Oh, and for those wondering how much progress I made in it before that week, I was only up to second gym. So yeah, not a lot of progress. I am pretty sure all of you have beaten it by now. XD

Speaking of games, last weekend I decided to continue Ace Attorney: Investigations. I ended finishing Case 3 and I am probably going start Case 4 this week. And who knows, maybe I'll beat the game this week too. XD

That would be nice. It give me a reason to update my Backloggery. Of course, buying games for myself in the Steam Sale isn't exactly helping that backlog. XD

Speaking of Steam games, does anyone want these Steam keys:

- Bridge Constructor
- Magicka + Dungeons and Daemons DLC
- Magicka: Wizard Wars - Yogscast Tippin' Unique Item
- Cities in Motion 2
- Ace of Spades: Battle Builder > Sent to Meiko
- Thomas Was Alone (I actually I have played this one before. And if I am not mistaken, I did beat it. Its pretty cool simple 2D platformer. I recommend if you like platformers and it seems like it could run on most computers. It ran on my old one and that just have standard graphic card from 2008)
- Mark of the Ninja > Sent to Burnmad
- Montas (Early Access)
- Stronghold Crusader HD
- Swords and Soldiers HD
- NiGHTS Into Dreams > Sent to Kohaku
- Strike Suit Infinity > Sent to ~Shockwave~
- Call of Juarez

I got the keys from the Humble Bundle for "Yogscast Jingle Jam" this month and well, I didn't really donate for games, so I thought maybe you folks might want them. If you do, let me know and I'll sent you over a key code through PM here.

Moving on, my last gaming thought is I am probably going start KH II.5 this week since well, I been itching to play it (And well, it also helps that I finally beat Dream Drop Distance recently. Yes, I know what took me so long to do that. I really don't have any good excuse for not beating it sooner.). Oh, and I'll try to play some Smash as I have been neglecting it. XD

So yeah, I guess I have some ideas on how to use my free time this week. I doubt I'll do all of them, especially since I am sure I can think of plenty of other stuff. But well, we will just have to wait and see.

Alright, well, that's all I really have to say here. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have a great day today. I'll talk you later, BZPers.

Oh, and Happy Holidays to those that are celebrating a holiday this week.

Loot of the Week: Gamecube Controller Adapter, Amiibo, & KH II.5

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Real Life, Video Games, Random Dec 12 2014 · 182 views

UPDATED 12/12/2014: Well, I got my other package today!

Posted Image

Its the Gamecube Controller Adapter! :) Looking forward to playing around with that this weekend. Maybe I can even convince my brother to try out the new Smash, if he is not too busy. =P

***

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in really quick and share some loot that I got today. So yeah, here's what I got in the mail today.

Woot!

So as today, I have all of the First Wave of Amiibos (DK, Link, Mario, and Kirby are here. I gave Pikachu to my sister.), which is pretty cool. XD

Hm...I am not sure yet if I am going collect the second wave of them (Although looking at second wave preorders does make me a bit worried that I won't find any of them, which kind stinks as I would like get at least Pit.). I probably I will collect them, to be honest.

Oh, and I won't be keeping them in the packaging like this as I would like to use them (After all, they do give me someone to play Smash with when I don't have my siblings around.).

Oh, and before I forget to mention I also got my copy of KH II.5 today (as shown above). Admittedly I probably will not be able to play it though until my brief winter break later in the month. XD I wish there was more time in the day as I would love to revisit KH II now (If you been following my blog for awhile now, you know I love overusing this line from it, "Looks like my summer vacation is...over.").

Oh, well. It gives me something to look forward to during the break (And gives me chance to use that line again when that "vacation" ends. XD)

Alright, well, that's all I really have to say here. Hm...I probably should note that I might be bumping this entry tomorrow as I do have one more package coming this week. I want make sure it works before I get too excited about it. But yeah, I probably update this tomorrow.

With that said, thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have a great day today. I'll talk you later, BZPers.

P.S. I'll try to get a Pokelog up this weekend. I kind of forgot I was going to write one last Sunday, so I am sorry about that.

Pokelog Day 1: Groundhog Day Beginnings

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Nintendo, Pokemon, Video Games Nov 23 2014 · 171 views

Hey, folks. I am popping back into today to give you a status report on my progress through Pokemon Omega Ruby yesterday. To be honest, I didn't get much done (If anything, a lot of you folks are probably finished by now. XD).

And as the title suggests, I actually play the beginning of this game twice as I kind decided to take advantage Pokemon Bank and use it to get all three Hoenn starters. XD I only had to erase my file once since I already have Torchic from giveaway during X & Y release. And well, I had bred like a bunch of Torchic in my X game, so I just sent a baby one over once I had bred other two starters in my X game.

So yeah, I have three Hoenn starters now. =D Yeah, I know it is not that much of achievement really (Especially to you folks that have actually caught all 719 Pokemon before.). But well, I thought it would be cool to try out all three starters since to be honest, Generation 3 was probably the Generation of Pokemon that I remember least of (Probably doesn't help that it came after my original favorite Generation 2.). So in some ways, this play-through feels new to me. XD

Really that's about it for what I played yesterday. I mean I hadn't really decide on a team yet, outside playing around with the three starters. I guess I'll mention really quick who is in my party:

- Torchic, Level 9
- Beldum, Level 6 (Nintendo Network Giveaway one)
- Treecko, Level 16 (He was at Day Care when he got to level 16, so he didn't evolve)
- Mudkip, Level 13
- Surskit, Level 5
- Poochyena, Level 5

And yes, I hadn't nicknamed any of my Pokemon. I should probably do that when I find the Name Rater. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that I met Wally (He is such a cutie.). Actually I guess it is a given that I have met him. XD

But yeah, that's about it for my first day in Pokemon Omega Ruby. I am not sure if I am going to be playing it today, especially considering I decided to start watching Star Trek: Voyager today.

Hm...I don't know if I have mention here, but I finished Deep Space Nine last month. I thought it was pretty good and its currently my favorite Star Trek series. But anyway, to get back on topic, the next Pokelog probably won't be up till Tuesday, assuming I played it on Monday.

Alright, I rambled enough here. I am sorry if this was boring entry for you to read. Thank you though for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have a great day. I'll talk you later, BZPers.

Smash Omega Ruby Day

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Real Life, Video Games, Pokemon, Nintendo, LEGO, Random Nov 21 2014 · 149 views

Hey, folks. It been awhile since I wrote a blog entry, so I thought I would pop in today and give a little update. Really there's not much to update you folks on since not a whole lot been going on with me. I just been working and doing the usual stuff (Reading stuff on BZP, watching videos, and playing video games).

Oh, and I don't think I mention here, but I am excited for BIONICLE 2015 (GEAR FUNCTIONS! Oh, how I missed them.). I will admit I am a bit behind of some news about it though. But it is on my to do list to watch all BZPower videos about BIONICLE 2014 during my holiday break next month. So hopefully I'll be up to speed by then and maybe I can comment in more detail about it. XD We'll see, I guess.

But anyway, as the title of entry say, I got my copies of Super Smash Bros for Wii U and Pokemon Omega Ruby today. And I must say I am excited to play them (lol And yet here I am writing this entry rather than just play them already. XD). Hopefully maybe I can play a match or something with some of you folks at some point.

EDITED: Oh, and I am bring back Pokelog on here, so expected to see entry about the start of my journey through Pokemon Omega Ruby tomorrow.

Speaking of that, if you hadn't added me on the Wii U or 3DS, here's my friend code and Nintendo ID in case you want to do that:

General Rambling - Work, Star Trek, Korra, ect.

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Video Games, Real Life Jul 27 2014 · 132 views

Hey, folks. I thought I would pop in today and give a general life update since it has been awhile since I have done one.

I guess I'll start by mentioning how my job been going. Its been going pretty good, I think. I mean I still have it, so obvious that's good. XD And well, business wise we have been getting plenty of work this year (It is a bit slow this month, but that usually how it is in July since the company does have a little two week shut down at start of it.). So yeah, it been good.

I could probably ramble a lot about my job here, but I doubt it be that interesting for you folks to read. I don't really do anything exciting. I am just an office worker that handles database and planning stuff for the manufacturing of helicopter parts (Mostly hogout and sheet metal parts) in our machine shop. So yeah, probably not most interesting job to ramble about here. XD

Alright, so moving on, I guess I could mention here that I finished Star Trek: The Next Generation last weekend. I got say after watching it, I can definitely see why people like Star Trek. It's a great series. I must admit though I was sad to see TNG end though. I am going to miss Picard and his crew. Speaking of Star Trek, I just started watching Star Trek: Deep Space Nine this weekend and I got say I am liking it so far. (I am currently watching it as I write this actually. XD I am on Season 1, Episode 11.)

Okay, I think I ramble enough about Star Trek here. Hm...Let's see what else can talk about. Well, Book 3 of Korra has been pretty good so far. I am a bit disappointed that Spirits hadn't been involved in this book's plot though. I mean I would expected them to play a bigger role in story since Harmonic Convergence occurred.

That being said, I like the storylines for this season, especially the backstory about Lin's family. I would ramble more about Korra series, but I don't want to end up accidentally spoil something for people that I hadn't watch the latest season yet.

So moving right along, uh... I was going talk about video games. I hadn't really play much this week, outside of Animal Crossing: New Leaf (Which I mostly went on to clean up Redbrook since I planning to try and get back into the game.).

Hm...I probably should finish 999 at some point. I only like two ending away from 100% it. Oh, and I probably should start Edgeworth's Ace Attorney at some point. XD So many games to play yet so little time.

Alright, I think I rambled enough about stuff here. It was probably a boring read really. I am sorry for that. Uh...I guess while I am here, I might as well wish BZPower a belated birthday since anniversary week ends today. Happy Birthday, BZPower! I hope the site lives to see another 13 years. Hopefully I'll still be around to see this great site continue to grow with time.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have a great day. Talk to later, BZPers.

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 · 157 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.
