For those who weren't aware, this year is the 30th anniversary of Nintendo's Metroid franchise. It is hands down my favorite franchise from them. I love it even more than Pokemon. Samus Aran is also one of my favorite video game characters out there. I own all the Metroid games in one way or another, and I've played through all but two of them. (Those two being the original Metroid and Metroid 2: Return of Samus.) Out of the ones I've completed, I've 100% all of them except Super Metroid. (Pl
Yes, you read that right. I actually heard about this about a week ago. The Titanic II, which is 'to be built as a modern day replica of the RMS Titanic,' is currently scheduled to launch its first trip in 2018. More info on this can found here My thoughts on this are mixed. On the one hand, I guess it would be interested to go on a ship like this. I'm not a huge fan of staying extended periods of time on ships. But to be on one that is similar to the Titanic, give or take some modern update
Whatever has been going around making people sick, I have caught it. As of this entry I just have a somewhat sore throat, a cough, and my body is feeling a little weak, but I'm sure I'll be dealing with an extremely running nose among other symptoms in the coming days. Thankfully, I have the next two days off from work, so hopefully I can rest up and kick this out of my system. Because I really don't like feeling like this.
Yep, ANOTHER trailer for Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice was released today. I don't think I've ever seen a movie get so many trailers before. I would throw out a complaint about the movie having too many trailers, but then I watched this new one and, well, it actually made my interest in the movie grow a bit. Only the first teaser has really done this for me before. This new one was really good. I won't spoil anything here for those that don't want to see it, but I will say that if you l
If you could take any Gen 1 or Gen 2 Bionicle character and give them a nickname that would be considered canon for them in their official stories, what character would you choose and what nickname would you give them?
So the other day Corrin and Bayonetta were released for DLC for Smash Bros. I decided to get all of the new DLC released, fighters, stages, and costumes all included. It's the last DLC for the game, so I thought why not? Bayonetta is a lot of fun to play. Her moves look really cool, especially directional A attacks. Her final smash is also terrifying. I can see fighters who like making a lot of combos using her a lot. But to my personal surprise, I think that I actually like Corrin more tha
Hapori Tohu is BZP's own 'BZP' account. Just like Twitter having its own 'Twitter' account, or Facebook having its own 'Facebook' account. Those accounts give people updates on stuff related to said sites for their members. But what does Hapori Tohu do? He starts all the topics in the News and Discussion Forums, and....not much else. But he doesn't need to do anything else. For he is Hapori Tohu, and that's all he needs to be for BZPower. He's like Batman, watching over all of us. Twitter a
Well, I've made some progress on Omega Ruby since I last posted about it. I thought I would just give you all the highlights of my journey so far. 1. I've beaten the first five Gym Leaders. Some were more of a challenge than others (looking at you, Wattson), but I enjoyed that challenge. 2. My goal of using only one Pokemon (Skitty) to win all five categories in the Pokemon Contests continues on. It's already won the Master level in the Cute category, and I'm currently completing with it thr
I stated in my last blog entry that I was told that the book I wanted, Revenge of the Skull Spiders, would be at my house Monday. Turns out I was wrong, as I came home from work tonight and found that it had already been delivered. I guess I read something wrong on the Barnes and Noble website. But I'm not complaining, as I now have the book and can read it! Once I get some time to sit down to that though....
I think I've stated this sometime before, but I really don't like ordering stuff online. I much prefer to go to a store and get whatever I need/want to get. This applies to Bionicle sets, video game consoles and games, books, and anything else I want to buy. Maybe its just a fear of having my info hacked and losing money from it, or maybe its something else. I'm not sure. But I try to not buy things off the Internet unless I absolutely have no other choice. Which brings me to the closest books
Nothing like driving up to your home at 1:30 in the morning after working an eleven hour shift at your job and almost having a head-on collision with a deer dashing across the street in front of your next door neighbors house. That is definitely something that gets one's attention. But seriously, I almost did hit a deer while coming home from work. This actually isn't the first time I've seen them in my neighborhood. I think it's been a couple years since I've last seen them, but they have pai
So I've been playing Pokemon Omega Ruby for a little while now. And I'm still having a lot of fun with it. My team is growing really well, and I'm making good progress whenever I play it. However, I wanted to challenge myself a little bit regarding the Pokemon Contests. I decided that I would raise Pokemon that would only be used in these Contests. So far, I've only competed in three of them in the Cute Category. The Pokemon I'm using, Skitty, has destroyed all the competition so far. Probabl
There are a LOT of movies coming out this year. Here is a list of the ones I plan to see. It is in no particular order. 1. Captain America: Civil War 2. DeadPool 3. Doctor Strange 4. 10 Cloverfield Lane 5. Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice 6. Star Trek Beyond 7. Suicide Squad 8. X-Men: Apocalypse 9. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story 10. Gambit 11. Independence Day: Resurgence I've already seen the Revenant, so I can check that one off the list. I might also see Finding Dory and Kung Fu Panda
So I had a Youtube video pulled up and was listening to it while I was busy with other stuff, when all of a sudden an ad popped up on it. I went over to the computer to hit the 'skip' button when I noticed the length of this particular ad. It had the longest length I've ever seen on a Youtube ad hands down. How long was it exactly, you ask? It was a hour and 21 minutes long. A HOUR AND 21 MINUTES LONG! And why was this ad so long? Because apparently it was the first two full episodes of MT
You all may recall a previous blog entry I made about The Martian being nominated in the Best Motion Picture of a Comedy or Musical Category for 2015 by the 73rd Golden Globes Awards. Well, this award ceremony was held tonight, and it turns out that The Martian actually won this award! Not only that, but Matt Damon, the actor who played the astronaut (Mark Watley) who was left on Mars in the movie, won the award for Best Performance in a Motion Picture for an actor in a Comedy or Musical as wel
This is a movie that I wanted to see for a little while, and I'm glad it lived up to my expectations. The Revenant is definitely not a kid's movie (its rated R), but for those old enough for it, I do recommend it. There are some amazing shots of the scenery in the movie. The environment looks just as beautiful as it is deadly. I actually felt cold in the theater at points just from watching this movie. Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, and the rest of the cast do a great job with their roles. Espe
When I first became a Premier Member, I thought to myself 'I should make a quiz or two for the site, and make them super challenging for those who dared tried to beat them.' But I haven't made any progress on this since, because I kind of forgot that they existed. Thanks, life. But I still wouldn't mind making a quiz for BZP. I just need to find the time to make it. And if I did, I'd make sure to make really difficult.
I've had the game for a few months now, but I was still playing through Pokemon Y again when I bought it. And I didn't want to be playing through the two games at the same time. So I finally finished Y a week or so ago and now have started Pokemon Omega Ruby. And can I just say that I've enjoyed it a lot so far. The game looks beautiful. It really uses the Pokemon X and Y design to make Hoenn look amazing. Just seeing the title screen of the game alone gets me pumped up to continue my adventur
So the Bionicle Graphic Novel 'Gathering of the Toa' came out the other day. I've aleady posted my thoughts on it in the Gathering of the Toa Offical Discussion Topic, but I thought I'd post them here as well. Contained in the spoiler tags is the post that I put in that topic for those interested. Don't read it if you don't want to know anything about the novel before reading it.
So I went to my Barnes and Noble today, in the hopes of getting both Bionicle: Gathering of the Toa and Bionicle: Revenge of the Skull Spiders. They didn't have the latter yet, so I was only able to get Gathering of the Toa. At least they had it on the shelves, unlike when I went there to get Island of Lost Masks. For that one I had to ask for it, and they had to go to the back to get it for me. To compensate for not getting Revenge of the Skull Spiders, I decided to see if they had any 2016 B
I finally got to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens yesterday. I can now move freely throughout the Internet without worrying about accidentally spoiling something from the movie for me. Spoilers follow:
