The 4th of July

Soon the nation that is the United States of America will celebrate another Independence Day.

But what meaning and reminder can we Christians find in this event?

We need to remember all the Miracles God had done in the creation of this country, and the lives of His Christians! The true meaning of this ‘holiday’ is not Fireworks, or doing stupid things. It is another reminder of how God is still trying to make the lives of his children better, & blessed.

Our Job is to lead more people to Christ, Every good holiday gives us an Opportunity to do that.

Remember though,

1 Chronicles 29:15 New King James Version (NKJV)

15 For we are aliens and pilgrims before You,
As were all our fathers;
Our days on earth are as a shadow,
And without hope.

We Christians belong in Heaven, this isn’t truly our country.

LEGO Minifigures Online Switching to Buy-to-Play

legonenen:

Too bad! I haven’t been able to try it, And looks like I won’t be able to do so for even longer.

Originally posted on LEGO Universe News!:

space_image_reduced_1Today, Funcom announced that LEGO Minifigures Online, the free-to-play LEGO MMOG based on the LEGO Minifigures collectables toy line, will be changing their playing and payment plan. This summer, LEGO Minifigures Online will no longer be a free-to-play game with microtransactions and membership levels, but will convert to a buy-to-play game where you must purchase the game up-front before playing. There has been no word on if players must purchase game-time to continue playing.

In addition to the buy-to-play change, Funcom mentioned that the structure of the game will be changing a bit:

…we are implementing a strong narrative, with a voiced storyteller guiding players through the game and the different worlds using cinematics and scripted events. We are also implementing unique gameplay events in the different locations that will make the worlds come even more alive, and much more.

Funcom’s CEO commented that the changes to the game should…

Legends of Chima Online to close June 1st

legonenen:

As I commented separately.

Another LEGO mmo closing?
I saw it coming since it was based on a Toy line rather then the toy line based on the game.

LEGO Minifigures online has a better chance in the regard.

As clearly stated on the LoCO homepag: and officially announced on the LEGO Message Boards:

We are sorry to tell you that the game will no longer be accessible starting June 1, 2015 at 9:00am EST both online and through our iOS app. On this date, you will no longer be able to play the game or spend any remaining Gold Bricks.

Fake, Counterfeit, Fraud, LEGO

Don’t get tricked!

Fake, Counterfeit, Fraud, LEGO

One example of fake Lego. “Bele” making people think they are buying real Ninjago set.

Now, when I say fake, I do not mean Mega Blocks, Knex, Tente, or any other legitimate brand. I mean those who make sets that seem like actual LEGO. The ones who want you to think it is REAL Lego, when it isn’t!

Recently, I had been tricked into buying a similar set, though I Should have known better! Which is why I am making this post. So you won’t get confused when you’re out buying lego.

Always look for the LEGO logo, If the box doesn’t have it. THEN IT IS NOT LEGO! So if you are buying Online, make sure they have a picture where you can see it, and that the pictures aren’t copied from somewhere.

Also, check the Box to see if it looks like a sloppy copy of…

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! well, it just before Christmas actually, but that is my intention.

_ _ _ _

Well it’s another year, & people still don’t see the truth that sits right in front of their face. How many of you know the meaning of Christmas? The literal beginning of the Word is “Christ’s Mass” which was, as you can see, a catholic holiday in the beginning. But now has been accepted by many denominations of Christianity. (Ugh, denominations.)

So what is the meaning of X-mas? nothing, except all of the bad things of the holiday. Same as X-giving, it removes the most important part of the name.

Christmas is about celebrating Jesus Christ, and most people celebrate his Birth on that day. A birthday party, in other words. I like watching movies, and getting nice stuff too. But those are just traditions and things to enjoy. Not the Real meaning of Christmas!

Please think about the real meaning of Christmas this day, as well as tomorrow on Christmas Day!

LEGO Universe’s Fourth Birthday

legonenen:

A little late maybe…
but HAPPY Birthday!

Originally posted on Rioforce's Secret Lair:

Happy Birthday, LEGO Universe!

Four years ago, on October 26, 2010, LEGO Universe officially opened it’s doors to the public. LEGO Universe was LEGO first (and greatest!) Massively Multiplayer Online Game. I was lucky enough to be invited to the Closed Beta in March 2010, so I have been a long-time fan of LEGO Universe. However, I did not play the fully released LEGO Universe until it’s Free-to-play version came out in August 2011. LEGO Universe is close to my heart, because it pulled me out of my short “Dark Ages” of LEGO and effected my life greatly. Because of it, I took up the art of 3D modeling and rendering, and brickfilming. This is why I always celebrate it’s birthday. Even though the game closed soon after it’s first birthday in 2012, I cannot stop thinking about it. :)

(Ok, I know that this post makes it sound like…

ROBLOX (The Bloxy Awards)

Time to Start Submitting Your BLOXY Entries

BLOXYs 2014The BLOXY Awards are a veritable who’s-who of ROBLOX film-making — the premiere ROBLOX film event; our own version of the Oscars. Last month, we announced the 2014 BLOXY Awards and the four categories of submissions. Now, it’s time to start submitting your entries! Keep reading to find out how it works.

Submitting your BLOXY entry

  1. Upload your entry to YouTube
  2. Put [BLOXY 2014] in the video title
  3. Send your entry’s YouTube URL and your username to bloxys@roblox.com

Entries must be received by 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on May 26th, 2014. After the entry period, we’ll create galleries of eligible submissions for each category. Viewers will be able to vote by giving the videos a “thumbs up” on YouTube. We’ll find the top vote-getters (assuming they are of BLOXY-level quality) and choose the winners from that pool.

Winners, of course, will receive a virtual BLOXY Award and have their videos screened during Virtual BLOXcon 2014 in June!

The categories

Long-form Machinima: arguably the most celebrated of categories. Tell a story – any story you can dream up, from comedy to suspense to action – using the ROBLOX engine (or ROBLOX assets in 3D graphics software) as your visual medium. Build sets, hire actors, incorporate music, script action sequences, narrate with spoken dialog, etc. The sky is the limit. Go nuts. Length: 2-5 minutes.

Short-form Machinima: tell an original short story, convert a movie trailer into ROBLOX, write a bizarre comedy skit, or do something else entirely. The only rule is the short must be filmed within the ROBLOX engine (or using ROBLOX assets in 3D graphics software). Again, feel free to build sets, hire actors, incorporate music, script action sequences, narrate with spoken dialog, etc. Use your imagination. Length: 45-90 seconds.

Music video: create a music video for a song using ROBLOX as the visual medium. You can write your own original music (about anything, including ROBLOX) or make a music video for an existing song. This has the potential to be the coolest BLOXY category yet. Length: 1-4 minutes.

Major league (ROBLOX) gaming: record yourself playing ROBLOX and capture those epic streaks, unimaginable acrobatics, and high-octane moments of excitement. Take your most dramatic clips from any variety of games and edit them together with exciting music and whatever other effects you deem fitting as a montage that shows how cool ROBLOX gameplay is (and how skilled you are). Length: 30-60 seconds.

Minor details

If you’re looking for inspiration or just need an idea of what constitutes an award-winning entry, visit our YouTube channel. We have a playlist featuring all of last year’s BLOXY winners.

Good luck, film-makers!
