So I have been gone from BZP for a few years now, up until last week. There haven't been too many changes in my life in that time, but I figured I post about some things that have happened in my absence.
1. I'm still working at my job at my local amusement park. Thanks to my position there, I spent A LOT of time working. In fact, the biggest break I got from it was when the pandemic hit the world. I went six weeks without working at all. In a way, it was kind of a nice break. But in the las
Even though the corporate world have mostly forgotten about it, I know there are still people out there that remember and celebrate Thanksgiving. And that is one of the things I'm thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Me: It's been over a month since my last blog entry. I wonder if I can find something to blog about. 'finds story about a live action Dora The Explorer movie being made with Michael Bay as a producer' Me: Yeah, that's something to blog about. So Michael Bay is helping to make a Dora The Explorer movie. I didn't see that coming, TBH. Apparently the movie will age Dora up to a teenager and will be about her moving to the city to live with her cousin, Diego. So congrats to all the Dora Th
Upon making this entry, I realized that I haven't talked about Pokemon Go since last February. Let's fix that. Pokemon Go has changed a lot since Gen 2 was released. The gyms have been completely redone, and for the better IMO. Now they can only have six Pokemon in them, with none of them being duplicates of each other. Plus they count as Pokestops as well. You can even feed berries to the Pokemon in the gym if it's under control by your team, helping them stay in there longer and giving th
Here is an update that I probably should've posted earlier about how my family and I got through Hurricane Harvey. None of us were harmed in the storm, and we didn't lose our home or anything in it. We didn't even lose power. My parent's bedroom did take some water damage, but compared to what others have lost in the storm, we're not complaining. As for my town, it is bouncing back to how it was before Harvey hit. Some food places still have a limited menu, but overall things are getting back
I was debating on watching this, as I don't want to learn too much about this game before it is released. But I couldn't help myself. It's great that we're finally getting another 2D Metroid game. It's also great to see the Gravity Suit back. (I still think it should've been in Other M.) The Aeon Powers look like an interesting addition to the game as well. I can't wait to see how they are used in the game. My one nitpick about this is that they're are some content locked behind Amiibos. Y
...Or it will probably be a hurricane by the time it arrives in my local area. So for those who may not be aware, there is currently a tropical depression, named Harvey, in the Gulf of Mexico that is being predicted to hit southeast Texas, where I live, sometime late on this coming Friday. It's stated that this depression could very well become a category 1 hurricane before hitting land though, and that could cause some flooding power outages, and other bad things to occur. And what's worse
So I finally completed The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask a couple days ago. I know I mentioned months ago that I would beat it, and now I can say that I have. It wasn't at 100% though, as I didn't get all the heart pieces or masks. But that just gives me another reason to play through it in the future. I really enjoyed the game overall. It took me some time to get used to the three day cycle and how it effected the world I was in, but once I did I started doing really well in the game. I als
Since I really don't have anything to blog about at the moment, yet I still want to post something here, I'm going to make this one an AMA entry. Because I haven't done one in awhile, so why not? So ask away.
Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been posting my thoughts on movies that have been coming out this summer. (Or you have not noticed. I don't know. ) This is because it's been a really rough summer for me at my job. Summers have always been rough at my job, but this year has been extremely tough, especially this month. But I still wanted to at least mention some of the movies I've seen this past summer. So I'm going to just mention which movies I've seen and give some quick thoughts
It has been a LONG week for me these past seven days. At my job, the week of Fourth of July is the busiest in the summer. And since I work PM and overnight shifts, that resulted with me working a lot. I actually saw the sunrise three mornings in a row after working repeated overnight shifts. It was exhausting. But it's over now, so the rest of the summer shouldn't be as bad. I hope.
With the NES Classic being so popular last year, it's not surprising to see Nintendo make a SNES Classic to follow it up. Here is a list of games for it, courtesy of IGN: Contra III: The Alien Wars Donkey Kong Country EarthBound Final Fantasy III F-ZERO Kirby Super Star Kirby’s Dream Course The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Mega Man X Secret of Mana Star Fox Star Fox 2 Street Fighter® II Turbo: Hyper Fighting Super Castlevania IV Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts Super Mario Kart Sup
Tropical Storm Cindy is predicted to be hitting my local area as of this entry later tonight. Or as least, we'll be getting hit by its dry side. (The west side of it) Regardless, it's been awhile since anything tropical has affected where I live. I don't know how bad the storms will be, but I do expect a lot of rain, lightning, and strong winds. Thankfully, I'm off from work today and tomorrow, so I'll be home when it hits and don't have to worry about work until Friday. As with any storm, th
When I learned that this trailer was being revealed last night, I was a little surprised. I thought that we wouldn't see anything on Black Panther until at least after Spider-Man: Homecoming was out in theaters. But I'm not complaining, because this trailer is great. I like how it continues to trend in recent Marvel movies of showing just enough to get you interested in the movie but not give the majority of the plot away. (Though Spider-Man is an exception to that. ) It's a trend that I hope
The following video is about a year old, but I only found it on Facebook the other day. Regardless, it's really cool. It shows scientists founding sharks living in an active volcano.
It's a great find IMO.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales came out last weekend, and that is when I saw the movie. It's definitely better than the fourth movie, On Stranger Tides. But it still falls short compared to the first three IMO. They are some good things in it though. One of the opening sequences involving Jack and Co. stealing a bank vault is really cool. It definitely something not seen in a Pirates movie before, and it's one of my favorite action scenes in the movie. The relationship betw
