Roxas

I’ve typed and deleted this a few times over the past few months, I wasn’t sure if I should spend time on it and on occasion worried that it sounded too much like a Tumblr post (my gosh I hope that’s just my imagination), but you know what I’m feeling needy right now so here. Probably not well-organized and contains spoilers for lots of Kingdom Hearts games, you’ve been warned.   You probably already know that Kingdom Hearts fans love Roxas. The thing is, Roxas was created from Sora and, in th

Pokemon Bank Update

If you didn’t hear, Pokémon Bank has been updated! You can now use it with Gen VII games, transfer Pokémon from Gen VI to Gen VII, and transfer Pokémon from Virtual Console Gen I games into Gen VII!   Bank now also has a National Pokedex function, which registers all the Pokémon you have in all games connected to it, making it even easier to keep track of your progress. Still hoping they update Sun and Moon with the National Dex, but this is pretty neat.   When transferring Pokémon from VC to

More Complete Thoughts on KH2.8

I won’t be getting to play it anytime soon (PS4s are expensive), but now that I’ve watched and processed 0.2 and Back Cover I wanted to gather up my reactions and speculations in one place because…of reasons?

THE POTENTIAL IS MAXIMUM

So, Dragon Ball Super. They’re about to head into a new arc where 10 fighters from each of the 12 universes are brought together for a massive tournament, and the losers’ universes will be destroyed. I’ve been unsure what to think of this since the beginning: multiversal tournament sounds great, but the survival aspect…I mean I guess it adds stakes, but I love that we found out there are 12 universes, it opened up so much potential and if they’re going to throw all that away…   *sigh*   I gues

Tsundere Program Non-Optional

I’m watching someone play Steins;Gate 0 and I realized something. (No spoilers don’t worry.)   Amadeus Kurisu is an AI based on the memories of someone who (during the plot of 0) is dead.   MegaMan.EXE is an AI who (somehow) incorporates the DNA of a deceased person.   Basically they’re one and the same and I propose we refer to Amadeus Kurisu as MegaMakise.EXE from now on.

0.2 Many Questions!

Someone has provided English subtitles for the entirety of the 0.2 section of 2.8, so I watched that. Master Aqua is even more my hero than she was five minutes ago, we don’t deserve her, she’s got to be one of the most awe-inspiring protagonists in video game history.   Something else that really caught my attention, assuming the subs are at least approximately accurate there are some interesting lore implications brought up.

STYLIN'

I love the avatar system in KHUX.   There's so much going on here: -The so-called "Disco Suit" -An enormous afro with a galaxy inside of it -The afro covers your eyes, but not your glasses?? -Those headphones are just kinda...emerging...from within the afro galaxy... -A jetpack -Gauntlets and shield meant to evoke ancient gladiators -And, you know, the giant cartoon key used to slay evil   I guess I had to look this good in order to slay 2016.

It's Christmas!

So, you know…have a Merry Christmas! Please. I mean, if you want to.   Or if you celebrate something else, I hope you have a happy holiday as well!   And if you don’t celebrate anything than I hope you have a nice day!

Concept

You scroll through the Library Forum and see a short story entitled “Bionicle Agni Kai Fight.”   You think “Agni kai? Oh, those firebending duels from Avatar? It’d be awesome to see two Toa of Fire have one of those!”   Upon clicking the link, you discover a tale of Agni and Kai having an argument.   From there you’ll probably experience either regret, anger, or perhaps a feeling of “Oh, that was clever!”   (Fingers crossed it’s the last one.)

An Age-Old Question Answered

You all know what a Super Saiyan is. You scream a little and then BAM, spiky gold hair and a power level over 9000.   But...what would happen if you tried to turn Super Saiyan and were bald?!   This question has plagued the worlds' greatest* minds for decades, but fret not! At last, we have an answer!     This is Super Saiyan 3 if you want to be technical. Either way, the question is answered!! If you don't have hair, then your beard gets gold and spiky!   ...Although...what if you were bal

Eating My Own Words

I don't have any context for this. I just remembered that I really liked this joke/picture I took 2 years ago and don't think I've put it on this blog yet.

A Mega Anniversary! Ride On!

It has officially been 10 years since the release of the first Mega Man Star Force game (in Japan)!   I already went on about why I love this series a while back. In short, it's a sequel to my first Mega Man series (EXE), it's one of two that I was able to follow from the beginning (the other being ZX), it's fairly standalone so I don't feel like I'm missing a ton of references, and it has great character development not just for the main characters, but even a lot of the briefly-appearing char

Long-Forgotten Ruin

Believe it or not, there’s a new chapter of Beyond Ruin!   This one is about a Queen discovering a location rich with magic and going in to investigate. Since we need conflict, that turns out to not be a great idea. It’s written a little more vaguely that the previous chapters, for reasons explained in the chapter itself, plus it sort of follows the last one’s idea of introducing new magical phenomena. I think that’s something I’d like to focus more on: not just establishing the Queens, but a

The Mechanical Marvel

Whaddaya know, we’re already getting our first Gen VII Mythical! Magearna is available starting today!   So, to get this you need to have beaten the main story of Sun/Moon to unlock the QR Scanner. Go to Pokémon.com to find the QR code, scan it, and then follow the instructions to find an NPC who will give you Magearna!   So that’s 1 of 2 Mythicals already available not even a month after Sun/Moon’s release. That’s…slightly concerning in a way…

The Relic Song

Wow, it’s December. 2016 is virtually over, we’re in Gen VII…but there’s one last Pokémon being distributed for XYORAS!   Access Mystery Gift for Meloetta, the last of the anniversary Mythical distributions! You probably forgot about this one, since they were in the anime instead of a movie, and people don’t really watch the anime anymore. Well, except for those folks who got super into the XY series and immediately started whining when we got one look at the Sun and Moon series. They should get

Slizer Mafia: The Second One

Er, put more eloquently, Slizer Mafia 2: Okotans’ Revenge.   It’s up now in G&T! We need 25 players; when that’s reached, I’ll keep signups open for about 12 hours before getting underway.   Last time the Judge Slizer was able to return to the year 2000, but what happened after that? Even if they were able to build a better future for the Slizer line, I have a feeling Bionicle isn’t going to take kindly to being shut down like that…

Pokemon League Defeated! (Spoilers)

I’m Alola’s first ever Champion! But I couldn’t have done it without my team: -Boko the Decidueye! My starter, the one who’s been with me throughout my entire journey. Love this archer bird. -Onepu the Mudsdale! The freaking MVP of this team! Seriously, if you play Sun or Moon, get yourself a Mudbray/Mudsdale with Stamina. You will not regret it. -Wargoyle the Marowak! Still working out her moveset, but no one can say she isn’t reliable! Handled most of the last-minute grinding done on

Playing Pokemon Moon

I've made it to the second island and have cleared two of the three Trials there, just want to see if I can make myself level my team a little before taking on the last one.   Started with Rowlet, obviously. I named him Boko and he is simply phenomenal. Not only is Rowlet the cutest Pokemon ever designed, but it's pretty darn powerful too, and Boko's only grown stronger since evolving into a Dartrix. He was all I used for a while so he's a few levels ahead of the others. I'm trying to give h

Escapism

I’ve seen other people making lists of good things that are happening soonish so that they have something else to focus on and I really have no clue what else to do. So we’re gonna think about things that don’t suck here on Mt Coronet! (This means you, vampires.)   Let’s see…oh, there’s an episode of Steven Universe next week! A half hour special on Thursday. And I believe more new episodes in early December? Not to mention next week is Pokémon Sun and Moon! Of course, they’ve already leaked

Final Fantasy V Explained as Bionicle

(I’ve been in a FFV mood.)   We start on Aqua Magna. A Toa of Air and his trusty Dikapi go to investigate a Toa Canister that has fallen from the sky, and end up teaming up with a Toa of Water who rules over a nearby Wahi (no big deal) and an old Toa of Earth who has lost his memories. They convince a Toa of Fire with a pirate ship towed by a giant Tarakava to take them to the Suva of Air—unfortunately, the Suva breaks apart just as they reach it, but the Toa recover powerful masks and are ins

A Dramatic Decision

You know, I really enjoyed making my dramatic reading of the Piraka Rap.   Logically this should be followed by a dramatic reading of Creeping in My Soul, but...Creeping in My Soul kind of already sounds like a dramatic reading, so I don't know if my version would really sound all that different.   2007 was terrible.   I don't know what do y'all say, yea or nay?

The Reconstructed Hunter

November already? Here’s something to give thanks for. (Because Thanksgiving? I know it’s not my best one, but none of you laughed at my Earth Wind and Fire joke in September so I’m not breaking my back trying to find a better one.)   Genesect is available at GameStop! I’m not sure why it wasn’t saved for December, being the last Pokémon in Gen V National Dex order, but hey, Genesect is cool! Go get one if you don’t already have one!   Come to think of it, Genesect was the first (and thus fa

Kingdom Hearts AND Pokemon News!

Kingdom Hearts first, since there’s less. -Sora’s going to be in World of Final Fantasy as DLC. Haven’t been following this so eh -1.5 and 2.5 are being put together as one collection on PS4. So once this, 2.8, and III are all out, you can have the entire series on one console! I really need a PS4!! -The has been released. Master Aqua…-Two screenshots for KHIII were also shown, and it appears we’re getting new/modified Drive Forms? One picture shows “Guard Form”, which uses the Keyblade
