Not much technical issues, all six of the main Piraka are now unlocked, and you got the canister locator, so it looks like things went well this week.

 

For trying out playing as the unlocked Piraka, I had kind of expected you to just start up a level, shoot the weapon a few times, then quit and repeat with the other five. But I guess you've decided to try actually completing some levels playing as these Piraka. You may or may not have noticed that, with the exception of all but one Piraka boss level, every level has a black constraction that only Vezon can use, while not every level has a regular Piraka switch that you don't need Vezon for. (Since you seem to note how each level shows how many canisters you've collected, I suppose it's worth keeping in mind that, if you're missing just one canister, then it's probably the one behind the black constraction.) To save you from the frustration of not being able to collect any canister not yet collected, I'll just list off the levels (that I can recall) that do have a regular Piraka Switch:

Vezok's Coast: (1) Piraka Bluff, (3) Shattered Wreck

Thok's Mountain: (1) Flooded Lowlands (3) Blizzard Peaks

Avak's Stronghold: (1) Decrepit Dungeons (3) Menacing Keep

Reidak's Desert: (1) Desert Outpost (2) Bleak Refinery (3) Ancient Citadel

Hakann's Volcano: (2) Volcanic Trail

Zaktan's Jungle: (1) Logging Post, (2) Ancient Forest

If you'd like to use those Piraka for both their weapon and their ability, then those are the levels to chose from. (I think I might be missing a few, but at least that's enough for each to have at least one. I might edit this later when I have time to search more over the videos from the previous streams.)

 

I don't mind seeing a few more weeks of Bionicle Heroes, so I'll look forward to next week's stream.

In addition to the brief period of the audio occasionally going out on the left speaker, I also noticed that the audio quality from your commentary seemed to suffer a little for the entire duration of the stream, at times making it difficult to understand what you were saying (the game's audio was fine, but the commentary audio definitely sounded rather fuzzy this week).

 

I believe I already mentioned a few weeks ago about my own experience of falling through the ground and being forced to restart a level (though in my case, it was the Avak Piraka boss level), so although very rare, it does seem to happen occasionally. Of the three Piraka weapons you tried out this week, Hakann's has a slow rate of fire with large damage (much like his Lava Launcher in canon), Thok's is like a slightly weaker version of Hahli's weapon, and Zaktan's is the best with those rapid-fire large-damage blades.

 

When it comes to the creatures unlocked by those silver canisters, Bohrok are found on Vezok's Coastline and Zaktan's Jungle, Visorak are found on Thok's Mountain and Hakann's Volcano, and Vakhi are found on Avak's Stronghold and Reidak's Desert.

 

The bonus levels are actually very quick, as they're nothing more than trying to take out as many enemies as possible within a time limit of just two minutes. The first one is just Bohrok, the second is just Visorak, and the third is just Vakhi, so if you've fully competed every level but still lacking the awards for defeating a certain amount of enemies, those bonus levels are a quick and easy way to get them.

 

So that's three of the Piraka demonstrated, so the other three will be next week. Since the Tuesday after next week will be Christmas Eve, with the following Tuesday being New Year's Eve, will you be streaming those two weeks?

Very good to know!

As of right now, I can almost certainly stream on Christmas Eve. The question is - will anybody be around to watch? New Years is TBD.

I’m gonna try to tune in next time you stream.  I was going to watch yesterday, but I had a group project meeting that ended up overlapping the whole stream.

I honestly don't know what could be causing the occasionally intermittent audio issue, but I'm very sure it can't be due to something on my end, as these streams are literally the only time I ever notice it on my headphones (but since headphones are more sensitive to such an issue than speakers, I suppose it might not matter that much anyway).

 

Of the other Piraka weapons tried this week, Vezok's is similar to Thok's but a bit more powerful, Reidak's rapidly fires those weird energy drills that drop quickly and roll along the ground, and Avak's is rapid-fire but low damage. And since there's only one level to go to unlock Vezon, there should be plenty of time in next week's stream to later play any of the other levels to see his weapon in action (which is also a rather awesome weapon).

 

As far as I know at this time, I'll definitely be around for Twitch Tuesday next week. I'll look forward to seeing you finish up with Bionicle Heroes, and then the week after (or two) it'll be on to Lego Lord of the Rings.

Now that Vezon is unlocked, pretty much all there is left to do is play through most of the levels all over again. Since you always seem to check how many canisters there are left to unlock in each level, I won't bother pointing out which ones there are to go through. Though if you wish to know which levels have not yet gotten a gold ranking, you could always check the board in the trophy room. Speaking of which, I'm surprised it took you this long to reach 150 enemies defeated as Nuparu, so you may also want to check which of the other Toa have not yet defeated a certain amount of enemies (though I suspect it'll most likely be defeating 100 and 250 enemies as Hewkii).

 

Of all the games you've played on Twitch, Bionicle Heroes seems like the most probable one to reach 100% completion without much difficulty, so I'll be sure to keep it in mind once you've completed Story Mode on every other Lego game. Just a reminder, the only remaining Lego games left to play are Lord of the Rings (which you've said you'll play next), Batman 2, both of the two Indiana Jones games, and both of the two Harry Potter games. There's also the new Lego Star Wars game due to come out sometime next year, and don't forget about that questionable status for Lego Dimensions that you never got around to completing.

 

And like I mentioned in the chat, I'm planning this coming weekend to replace my old desktop computer that I've had for nine years (which was upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 back in early 2016), with a new desktop with Windows 10 on it, in hopes that it will eliminate the minor performance issues I've had with some of the more recent Lego games this year. If all goes well, I hope to reach 100% completion on every single Lego game currently available on Steam (so that won't count Dimensions or the yet-to-be-released Star Wars game) by the end of next year. I managed to purchase all of the remaining Lego games a few weeks ago, so now it's just a matter of getting the new computer working and then taking the time to actually play through those most recent Lego games.

 

With all of that in mind, my experience on all these Lego games along with the fact that I'm able to chat on Twitch means that by the time you've completed story mode on all available Lego games, you can pretty much feel free to pick any game you want for freeplay mode and I'll be capable of offering advice to help out (kind of like how you were able to get set up quite well on Pirates of the Caribbean). But of course, that likely won't be of much concern for quite some time.

 

Anyway, thanks for letting us know next week will be off. I'll look forward to seeing you start on Lego Lord of the Rings two weeks from now.

As I mentioned, I now a have a new desktop that runs way better and faster than my old one did. Of course, that just makes it easier for me to identify when it's the stream itself that's having technical issues, such as the volume occasionally going out on one side (I honestly lost track of when and for how long it happened). Also, I guess I forgot to mention that the chat content did not show up on the video screen.

 

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that having an old physical copy of Lego Lord of the Rings meant that you might've already played it a bit back when you first got it, but I am surprised that you apparently tried it out for only one day and never came back to it until now, because based on the achievements you've just unlocked, it looks like the first two levels and some hub world quests is as far as you previously got. Well, at least now you can take advantage of my experience playing this game last year to find things you might otherwise miss (for example, I probably should've mentioned that you would get an achievement for having Isildur (was that his name? I was never interested in this series to bother remembering these things) jump off the bridge into the lava in the first level).

 

Lego Lord of the Rings consists of 18 levels, 6 for each of the three books/movies, and since you've completed the first three levels this week, you're apparently already halfway through the first book/movie. Of course, since you mentioned you'll have less time than usual next week, we probably shouldn't expect to see you finish that part so soon. Anyway, even though I'm not interested much in Lord of the Rings, I'll always look forward to seeing the next Twitch Tuesday stream.

Whatever the audio issue was with the microphone, I'm glad you were able to fix it after I pointed it out. (I'm sure you'll notice the difference when you rewatch that part of the video.)

 

I do recall some levels being significantly longer than others, so I guess it makes sense that you would get through only two of them this week instead of three like last time. And since the next level starts after paddling those boats down the river, I guess you could consider yourself lucky for not accidentally keeping the stream going too much longer, though as I suggested in the chat, perhaps try not to wander around too much when you bring each stream to an end from now on.

 

And as I had mentioned in the chat, I never saw much of the Lord of the Rings movies, nor read any of the books, as I just simply don't have any interest in the high fantasy genre. To be completely honest, the only reason I managed to pick up any significant familiarity with the Lord of the Rings franchise is due to its presence among Lego video games (particularly Lego Dimensions, where Gandalf is one of the story's three main characters).

 

Just one more level left to go before Fellowship of the Ring is finished, and as always, I'll look forward to next week's stream.
