  1. Looks like I only have six achievements left: Trouble with her is the noise. Destroy 50 objects or characters using the scream and super scream ability. How we say goodbye in Germany. Access restricted enemy locations 50 times. How dare you kiss me! Use your whip to kiss Marion, Willie and Elsa. You call this archaeology? Use a scholar character's academic ability 50 times. I can't believe what you did! Disarm 100 enemies with the whip. We go for a ride. Perform 250 whip swings in the game. Based on reading some guides, the best spot for the first two is the Ancient City secret level. You go in, break glass, do the restricted area, then leave and go back. That also seems like a good place to do the third one, since I need female character who can scream anyway (although I don't think Elsa can scream). Looks like the best spot for the fourth is Temple of the Grail, where you can quickly do three puzzles then quit. Fifth one will be the last level in The Last Crusade, and it looks like making a custom character might help because they're more reliable than Indy when it comes to disarming. And the last and grindiest one is Battle on the Bridge. Fingers crossed we can get them all next week!
  2. I certainly want to get all of the achievements, but some of them seem like they'll be a real grind to get, and that would make sure a boring stream, going around and attacking things with a whip and finding snakes to kill and whatnot. I guess we'll see how things go next week!
  3. For me, it's two things. The first, going back to 2001, is the vibe. The atmosphere the Mata Nui Online Game created, along with the early comics, really set the tone and is what I think about when I think of Bionicle. But really, it's the community more than anything - we are all here because of Bionicle, and it's that shared passion. Bionicle is the fans who love it.

  6. With the end of Premier Memberships, there's still a hope that the community will help support BZPower and keep the site running. We have to pay monthly for our hosting, keep the BZPower domain names, install an SSL certificate to secure the connection between our site and our users, and have an active license for our forum software so we can stay updated. And that's just at a bare minimum. Other things like shipping raffle and contest prizes add more expenses, and none of that even considers the time the staff donates behind the scenes. To hopefully help with all that, we are opening the site up to donations, with a goal you can see here that tracks our expenses for the year to date, plus the fees and taxes that will be removed from any payments. There's no perks for donating, just a sincere thank you from myself and everyone else who still uses and enjoys BZPower. We appreciate any and all support! Even if we don't meet our target, we will still continue to keep the site running for as long as we are able. BZPower means a lot to us all, and we'd love to see it stick around for a long, long time. If you can help, we truly appreciate it!

  8. Yes, that's the best name I could come up with - names are hard! Coming back from a couple months of soul-searching, I am ready to return to streaming - come join the block party! After almost a decade of doing different types of streams with different names and schedules, I am merging everything into one generic LEGO-themed stream not tied to building sets, playing videogames, days of the week, or a specific platform. That stream is B6's Block Party! Our first stream will be tomorrow, March 20th, at 7 PM Eastern, where we're going to build a LEGO set. What set? You'll have to come and find out! We haven't changed locations, so we'll still be over on the BZPower Twitch channel, with archives posted on our YouTube channel. Moving forward, the plan will be to announce a schedule every Sunday or Monday, with at least a day's notice so people can plan accordingly. We'll be building sets, playing videogames, and maybe other things? I have a lot of bricks that need to be sorted and some sets that need to be taken apart eventually, so maybe you'll see that too at some point (or you won't because it sounds boring and you won't watch). There won't be anymore giveaways like we did with our set builds - believe it or not after almost a decade since we received the first pallets from The LEGO Group, we are actually starting to run low and want to focus our remaining supplies on things like contests and the convention circuit. So yeah, something new and hopefully fresh and fun! At some point I'll probably need to come up with a new logo and maybe some overlays and other graphics - if you want to help, please let me know! Thanks everyone who has ever watched one of our streams and to all our future viewers - we do this for the fun of it and hope you have fun too!
  9. Okay, I think this has gone on long enough, and the disruption is no longer needed. I wish PortalPuppy all the best, but clearly they need to step away from BZPower and the rest of the community.
  10. I think that about wraps it up for this topic. Thread closed.
  11. See my post here: Thread closed.
  12. BZPower is not the place to air private disputes. Vahkiti has made it very clear he does not want to talk to you, so I encourage you to stop. If you continue to bring this up in topics on BZPower, we will consider restricting your posting privileges. If you want to stay here and talk about Bionicle, you're welcome to do so, but please keep it at that. Thread closed.

  14. The Future of Twitch Tuesday Digging back through pages and pages of YouTube videos, it looks like we first started doing our Twitch Tuesday streams in July of 2015, about seven months after our first live build in December 2014. While that's not quite a decade, it's still a long time! Our streams of videogames and set builds have changed a bit over those years, especially the latter, and 2023 found my personal life making it difficult to stream on the weekends building LEGO sets. And I miss that. While I love playing videogames, over eight years of Twitch Tuesdays means I've played just about every TT Games title and quite a few of the more recent additions like LEGO Brawls. I enjoy striving for completion and finding every widget and collectible, but there is a point where the tediousness sets in a bit. So while I want to keep playing games, I want to bring back the set builds as well, and I don't want to be tied down to Tuesdays every week. Ergo, Twitch Tuesday as we know it is coming to an end. My goal is still to stream at least once a week, and maybe even more than once a week, switching between LEGO sets and LEGO games depending on my mood and what's captured my interest. There are still some details to be worked out. I'd like to come up with a catchy name for this new venture, and names are always hard. I also need to determine what my schedule is going to be and how far in advance I can share it. It would be great to be able to post it at the beginning of the week, but real life doesn't always accomodate things like that. Also, when I decided to take February off from streaming, I did not plan far enough in advance to realize that BrickFair Fredericksburg is at the beginning of March, meaning no streams will resume until March 18th at the earliest. So there's still some work to be done, but I'm looking forward to building and playing live for you all over on our Twitch Channel soon. Your feedback and input is always welcome!
