Hopefully you've been keeping up with our Raiders of the Lost Rock Let's Play series featuring Takuma Nuva and Zatth. Today we're announcing a new series of videogame-related videos: Bfa Plays Bionicle Heroes. Watch as BZP Staff Member Bfahome goes through the classic Bionicle Heroes game, providing interesting and (hopefully) amusing commentary. The first episode is up here and you can expect new episodes every Saturday. Watch out for those Piraka!

This looks like it will be a fun Lets Play. Heres hoping that we see the headless Toa glitch in one of the videos. :P

Back when I was a seven year old, I loved this game. I'm looking forward to a great let's play series!

I'm going to be busy with family matters for a while. Please be patient with responses to PMs, posts, etc.

I can also be found under the username Azani on SolisMagna.com and the BioMediaProject forums. Check out SolisMagna.com, as it is exactly what we need to maintain interest in Bionicle. Also, I highly recommend Check out the script for Mysterious Island, an adaption/reboot of the 2001 Bionicle story which I am writing. It's also a musical.

 
Bionicle is returning in 2015!

Love this game. Don't know when I'll watch it though, but it looks pretty interesting.

As soon as I started watching the first episode, I was kinda surprised that it was only around 20 minutes long, while I recall spending about 45 minutes to typically get through that first level. I quickly figured out that it was because he pretty much rushed through all of the important places, while I always took the time to destroy every destroyable object and collect every single Lego piece I could get my hands on.

 

I have not yet seen the second episode that just went up recently, but after quickly checking the title, I can see that he has chosen to next do the first level of a different region. I always preferred to complete all four levels within a region before moving on to a new one, but that's my preferences. This is his series, so he's free to do things his way.

That was the way I operated way back when I first played it too, but I figured it might make for a boring series if I spent 70% of each level already in Hero Mode and another 20% shooting rocks. :P

Yeah I decided to mix up the zones a bit for some variety.  I've forgotten exactly what unlocks the other Piraka's zones (aside from Thok and Avak) and I was hoping to be able to work through the Rahkshi levels first, but I may need to improvise a bit.

I've been enjoying this series a lot so far. I actually find it quite refreshing to see someone else trying to play through this game. I've completed the entire game over a dozen times over the years, so even though it's been over two years since the last time I actually played, I've practically memorized every bonus room and every canister location on every level. (And yes, I know which rooms were missed that were already accessible, but I won't point them out to avoid influencing your gameplay.)

 

At this point in the series, I currently have only one question. Once you start unlocking the Piraka as playable characters, are you going to demonstrate their weapons? (You don't have to completely replay a level, just start and shoot a few things before quitting. Also, keep in mind that when the final Piraka, Vezon, is unlocked, he immediately replaces all of the other Piraka.)

Good point, actually.  I hadn't planned on going back through any of the levels again, but now that I'm thinking about it I might want to do something like that.  Thanks for the suggestion!

I just watched the latest episode, and I gotta say that I liked how you decided to demonstrate playing as Vezok, right after the "end" of the episode. :lol: How about the rest of the Piraka? (My favorite of the Piraka's weapons are Avak's, Zaktan's, and Vezon's.)

 

Since you seem to keep wondering if it's possible to collect all five silver canisters in a level without any Piraka or upgraded Toa, I'll just say from my extensive experience that it is possible, but only on just three levels, if I remember correctly. The first is in Avak's zone, the second is in Reidak's zone, and the third I'm afraid I don't remember exactly, but I'm pretty sure it's not in the first three zones, which you're now almost done with.

Awesome. I might watch this, since Let's plays are usually quite amusing and I love Bionicle Heroes. Was a great game!

Quite a shame to see this series end (at least for now) after getting only halfway through the game, but I understand your reasons for doing so. I certainly enjoyed this series, and I hope to see you resume it at some point later on.
