Mata Nui Online Game Livestream this Friday

Recommended Posts

I hope you didn't have any plans for this Friday because you do now! On March 21st, beginning at 8:30PM Eastern, a group of BZPower Staff will be playing through the Mata Nui Online Game for your viewing pleasure. We'll even let you help us make some of the decisions! Watch as we fumble our way through a decade old game that some of us haven't played in at least that long. We'll be giving away prizes too, so if you weren't sold yet hopefully that'll tip you over! I hope to see you all then!

meh

 

you should've done a livestream of BIONICLE: The Game

That would have been amazing, not that there's anything wrong with the Mata Nui Online Game

Ooh, such nostalgia. That and VNOLG have to be my favorite two BIONICLE games of all time.

 

Rest assured that, assuming my chronic forgetfulness doesn't hinder me, I'll be watching this Friday!

Lol, this got me thinking, I wonder if there would be any way to set up a "twitch plays pokemon" for MNOG, that would be interesting :P Or would it be even possible? being a mouse based game?

it probably wouldn't be. you'd probably have to do one of the GBA games or something like that, sadly.

I'm not sure if I can be there. What time is it in EST?


:a: :r: :z: :a: :k: :i:

I got Monster Hunter World on PS4, add me at bmrjw2 if you want

Also I play FFXIV, my main is Anastasia Willow on Exodus but I've got characters on every NA datacenter.

It has been a few years since my last full play through. I'll think I'll check it out.

Sure, if I have the time Friday I'll watch it live, after all BZP live streams are always very entertaining.

I work that night, so I won't be able to watch. But it sure sounds like it will be a lot of fun.


Everyone is one choice away from being the bad guy in another person's story.

I imagine this was inspired by TwitchPlaysPokémon?

This is just one of the many ideas we've had in planning since last year.

I'm certainly hoping I'll be able to watch! I'm guessing you aren't going to play the entire thing, though, since that would take many hours.

We're going to get as far as we can in 90 minutes or so. Maybe we'll keep going beyond that, if you guys are having fun.

Sounds great! I love MNOG. It's probably the most nostalgic thing I can think of. Especially the eerie music at the telescope. Shivers, what Bioncle would become...

Has following the story become too complex? Look no further:

Mata Nui Online Game is still, in my opinion, the single best LEGO game of all time in terms of worldbuilding. It was thrilling, immersive, low-difficulty (you didn't have to focus too intently on dangers or challenges in your surroundings so you were free to take everything in at your own pace), and full of fantastic characters and storytelling.

 

Mata Nui Online Game II did a phenomenal job fleshing out the cultural landscape of Mata Nui and giving the Matoran a unique and powerful value system, plus it had even more depth to its cast of characters, but its world-building potential was sapped by a number of factors: crippling glitches, tedious and repetitive gameplay mechanics, a fixed top-down view that cut into the original game's sense of immersion, and a lack of real emotional resonance. Mata Nui was at peace, and as such there was never any sense of peril like in Po-Koro, no sense of frantic hubbub like in Onu-Koro, and no sense of celebration like in Le-Koro and Ta-Koro.

 

I might check out this livestream. I had a good time during the LEGO Movie discussion livestream last month.

This made my day.

 

And give me something to look forward to during the tests.


Looks like it's the end of the line for 21.

You can beat the game in 30 minutes, it's not that long.

Two things. One I've already beat that game, I did it several months ago. Two, when you are trying to find the matoran to defend kini nui get every matoran but onepu. If you get onepu it blacks out and you have to reload the page. so skip that chapter of the game!

We're not trying to speed run the game, we're trying to have fun and enjoy the game.

 

Once again, it'll be far too late at night for me. :( I assume it'll be recorded?

Yep, it'll be up on our YouTube channel.

Not sure what you're talking about. Onepu can't be part of the Chronicler's Company, it's Taipu, and as far as I can remember you need to take all six Matoran from all Koro with you in order to proceed.

Yeah, but that would be skipping straight through the entire thing, without really doing the in-depth conversations, or wandering through the Charred Forest, etc.

So you're gonna spend 10 minutes watching Kapura practice, then another 10 minutes trying to get out of the charred jungle, right?

We're doing the Nuzlocke challenge. 5 minutes for each. We're MLG Pro.
