So just like last December (but hopefully a bit more cohesively this time), some friends of mine and I will be hosting a staggered, double elimination Smash Bros Wii U tournament that'll be taking place over the summer. Before going into detail, though, let me break down a bit of what that means. Staggered means taking place over a long period of time as opposed to all in one day or one weekend. Basically this just means that it'll be over the summer, with players playing about one match per
So thanks to the goodwill of one Mr. Mesonak I have a half year's worth of premiership, which I will use to…do stuff with…I guess. And the first item on that "do stuff" list is advertising an online Smash Wii U tournament some friends and I are putting together. Tenative ruleset is as follows: Double elimination FT3 games advances, with the exception of Winner's, Loser's, and Grand Finals, which are all FT4 You can pick any stage/rule set if you both agree to it; otherwise, rules and stage s
So thanks to the new advertising policy, we are now allowed to link stuff. And thanks to BZP's anniversary, I have blog power for a bit. So with that...here's a link to a new chat run by BZPower members that we're trying to get going. Hope to meet you soon! -MT
Another day, another couple complaints. But we'll get to that later. The day started out with heading deeper into the forest and finding a Goron archeologist I had met the other day. He explained something about goddess cubes, which are basically ways of unlocking treasure chests on floating islands in the sky that you can collect later. Anyways, killed some more red guys and made my way into the forest temple. Temple was pretty easy until I got about halfway through it, where I had raised
And so the blog continues. Not much happened on day 2, actually. After getting some new clothes to accompany me on my journey(just think, every Link ever has worn green because Skyloft knights prefer green in the summer), I left Skyloft via my bird and traveled down to the surface below. After running down a gigantic spiral, I activated some geyers, and then ran all the way back, after being informed of dowsing, which is the ability to use my sword to detect the direction of things. Dowsing wa
Hello, everyone. This is a blog similar to the ones I did last year of Metroid: Other M and Halo: Reach, where I'll be recapping my experiences of a first playthrough of a particular video game, in this case, the latest Zelda. Basically the way it'll work is this: Every day that I get around to playing some of it, I'll write down what happened, my reactions, and, the most interesting(or hilarious, depending upon which way you view it) part of all, how many times I've died. One minor change I
Well...this is finally up. Not that many surprises in the first round of the playoffs, as Skyrim, Arkham City, Skyward Sword and Portal 2 won fairly easily. Which makes the 2nd round look like this: #1 Skyrim vs. #5 Portal 2 #2 Arkham City vs. #3 Skyward Sword Remember the rules, you can vote for one game per matchup. You can either vote in both matchups or one. Games with the most votes at the end of the round move on to the championship. -MT
Well, the nominations are in, the votes have been cast, and the top 8 games have been selected via the choices of the good people who frequently visit this blog(or just showed up on that one entry). The matchups for the first round of playoffs have been determined. And they are: #1: The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim vs. #8: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 #2: Arkham City vs. #7: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 #3: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword vs. #6: Minecraft #4: Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception vs
Well, after a rather uneventful nomination period, we have quite a few nominees for the last 4 spots in what is shaping up to be an interesting video game playoff bracket. The rules are simple: Out of the list of games below, vote for at most 4. The four with the most votes will join Skyrim, Skyward Sword, Uncharted 3, and Arkham City in the playoff bracket, which begins sometime later. But not too much later. In the event of a tie, the almighty coin flip shall be the decider. The nominees are
So it's time once again(or, at least, close to time) for our game of the year awards, which is always decided by who shows up on this blog to cast a vote. In years past, it sometimes completely agrees with my opinion(Fallout 3 in 2008) and sometimes completely differs(Other M in 2010). Whatever the case, it's time to start nominating games for this year's best of show: Oh, and since there's no Metroid game up this time, perhaps there'll be a fair voting. Metroid has some ridiculous history of
So here we are, at the end of the inaugural Omegafest, and I'm hoping that some of the stuff I'm about to announce goes over pretty well. Not that people on here would complain about it drastically, but there is some stuff that is a bit odd, even for TBTTRAH. So here it goes. First off is the less important announcements. Aftermath 2 is now up and running(and if you didn't know that you're incredibly behind the times), and there will soon occur two events that are rather important in TBTTRAH h
Here's Lev's day. Don't have a lot of time so I won't comment on it right now. ======= Lightning Elemental Commander: Sir, it’s your time slot. Are you ready? Levacius: I was born ready. Tell the troops to put on a presentation. We’re thinking Iron Man 2 here. Lightning Elemental Commander: We have one problem. The bus full of Ga-Matoran got shot down. Levacius: How does a bus get shot down? Lightning Elemental Commander: Very carefully. Levacius: *Sigh* Do we have anyone else that could do it
K so, since I screwed up on Tuesday or something, I'm moving iBrow to Thursday in one of my previous two slots. So yaa. Here we go... First off is a preview of a new comedy, which I personally am looking forward to a lot. ======= There's also some TvT stuff to be caught up on. There are three major storylines in Tahu vs. Tahu: Aftermath; The first stars Tahu Mata in an alternate 2009, trying to figure out why he suddenly doesn’t exist and also fix things The second stars Pridak, Mantax
JL's Booth or something, whatever. Anyways, Hello everyone! It's me, JL, bringing you the info and stuff for the .... 2nd day of Omegafest? Im not sure. All hail Omega Turtle, that is all. Anyways, Its some kind of thing where I have to show you guys my stuff, kind of like Halofest, I guess. Problem is, I've never actually been to these places, and in sites with people going to these places are images.... of more images. And I can't really create images for this thing, because its text based. T
So yaa I lied. Again. I'm good at that. Instead of Monday or Thursday, Omegafest will begin on Tuesday, with the iBrow day. After that I'm not entirely sure, but there will be a couple of TBTTRAH days thrown in there to show some of the new stuff I've been working on(and believe me, there's a lot of new stuff). If you want to secure a day, just post here and say which day. Otherwise I'll assign one to you. -MT
So since Boxtus is up I figured I might as well use it while I still can to do some stuff about some stuff that needs to be explained. The BZP Comedy Wiki is completely functional currently. We've been having a few issues that have been(mostly) fixed, so yay. The TBTTRAH Wiki is...well...another story entirely. It's rather dysfunctional at this point, and I'll be using the next few weeks of posting old Aftermath 2 chapters to update it some, along with writing new comedies that will appear i
After some consideration, I have decided that the blog and it's popularness(or lack thereof) isn't worth the $13 or whatever dollars it is for PMship. So after my PMship runs out for this year, Boxtus will be closed until further notice.
It's been a while since we've had a good contest that hasn't been ruined by some sort of camera issues, so I figured we'd try something new.
The challenge: Design an enemy to appear in Aftermath.
Explanation: Simple as they come. Just design an enemy that could work as a good villain/regular enemy in Aftermath. You're welcome to use whatever means you want: drawing, MoCing, or just plain describing it. If you do describe it though, make sure to give it a thorough description. Remember(this
Well, it's time to unveil the winner of this month's MoC contest, as we are well past the deadline. There probably isn't much unveiling to be done, as there was only one entry.
Congratulations to Mesonak....I have no idea what in the world you were thinking with that Skrall head, but it's going down in TBTTRAH lore now.
IN OTHER NEWS we have more losers than winners for this MoC contest, never a good thing. Here we go with our "losers" list.
Loser 1: Cameras. Prevented two more people f
One good comedy deserves another, right? A few weeks after A House Divided, which chronicles the TBTTRAH events of 2007 and forward from the Tahus perspective appeared on the forum, The Bionicles Try To Run A Diner is now out, marking the first time since spring of 2007 that the Bionicles have tried to run anything new.
I'll admit, this story isn't exactly canon, since it's a crossover with iBrow, another very good comedy writer, but hey.
Any reviews/helpful criticism would be appreciated.
Time for more betting on Boxtus. Because gambling is such a good habit to build.
Notes from last week:
-There are only SIX more days to enter for the MoC contest, so if you have any sort of hopes for changing the pick for that one, you need to do it soon.
-The "how many fights will there be on Almost There" pick turned out to be under the average(thankfully), so both Burnmad and I end up getting that one right.
-Deaths are few and far between on TBTTRAH Hurtl & Heal. Only one characte
