Welcome to my personal website!

Technology enthusiast

I am very interested in technology, particularly relating to computer science. I am most interested in web design and development.

My main hobby is programming. One of my most well known products from this is ZPE. I also am the sole creator of BalfBlog, BalfBar and BalfSlider.

A little bit about me

In 1997, when I was six years of age, I got my very first computer. I was always very interested in the ins and outs of it and dismantled it to see how it worked.

Years later, in 2016 I received my BSc (with honours) in Computer Science, obtaining a First class degree.

I'd like to welcome you to my website and hope you enjoy using it as much as I have enjoyed building it!

So I was somewhat disappointed by the latest Nintendo Direct, but two things stood out.

I particularly liked the re-releases of Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow and the HD remake of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, which just so happens to be my favourite console game ever. I was also taken in by the trailers for the new Xenoblade and Starfox games.

I was also obviously interested in the Smash Bros content that is to be released, but was slightly disappointed to see Final Fantasy becoming a part of Smash Bros. None-the-less, any new content for the game is always good (but more money that needs spent, sadly).

Nintendo never cease to amaze me (a bit like Apple, in some way) with the release of new games and it's no different with Super Smash Bros for Wii U and Super Smash Bros for 3DS.

I've got the game for the 3DS and I must say it works well and I was very pleasantly surprised by how well it works. It's also highly addictive and very good fun. But I'm still even further intrigued by the Wii U version which is to be released in late November.

Nintendo released a hugely shocking revelation today that caught me buy surprise - the release of a new character, coming to Wii U. To find out who this character is, watch the Nintendo Direct tomorrow (although I'll probably post about it here anyway).

Here's a snapshot of what to expect at the event:

Today a couple of significant photos were posted about the full character roster in Super Smash Bros for 3DS and Wii U. The photo confirmed characters not featured on the Smash Bros website but apparently a Japanese demo was released with the full character roster.

To me the proof of this is found on the Smash Bros wiki. This seems to have a collection of all the characters confirmed.

The characters Nintendo has not yet confirmed to be returning to the new Smash Bros game from Brawl are as follows:

  • Falco
  • Game and Watch
  • Ganondorf
  • Jigglypuff
  • Ness
  • Wario

Also returning is the Melee favourite Dr Mario! What a surprise this was too! Also note, the Jigglypuff and Wario both do not appear in Mashable's picture, but others have posted pictures of them. 

New characters that have apparently leaked include:

  • Dark Pit (!)
  • Duck Hunt Dog

To see an outline of all the characters, the Wiki is best for this.
