LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/22/17, 12/29/17 and 01/05/18+A new year, the same me

   0

Its a new year. 2017 lies bloody and broken at our feet, and now we walk further into the mists of the future and move forward on the roller coaster of life. Hopefully its a good one for you and friends, and a good one for gaming as a whole. For this one I have some certain resolutions going forward, as I imagine we all do and I plan on trying to get better at different facets. 

First of all I'm going to try to get into graduate school this or next year I think. Its been on my mind more and more, and I'm tiliting at getting that whole process started sooner than later to try to get into a job spehre I think will be more satisfying to me on a mental level. Second I want to keep up writing for dtoid-a blog every two weeks seems a reasonable goal to continue and it helps me keep my brain sharp. 

Third, as the picture above denotes, I want to get into streaming more and on a more regualar schedule as well as keeping my podcast going. Its in embryonic stages right now, but it seems to work chemistrywise and now I have a fancy good mic that will make my audio quality sound not terrible. Hopefully everything goes along well, and hopefully you hit your resolutions as well. 

Onto recaps! 

* - Strider emerges from the mists of adventure, and brings with him an offer to join in jolly cooperation via DnD. Community engagement like this tends to be rather popular with myself-I'll be joining in on this particular enterprise and I'm excited to see how it goes. Probably a trainwreck of some sort.

S - Virtua Kazama lists off 5 of the best fights from VFR, provides video and set up for each fight and brings VF month to a close.

S - And before the above blog, comes this blog also from Virtua Kazama talking about what makes VF2 iconic.

M - Siddartha85 goes through their top moments for different mediums last year and by putting Bladerunner 2049 on the list, proves that there is some good taste going on in this blog.

P - Pocketoid returns to Destructoid to share the fact that their latest episode stars Jonathan Holmes. Check it out if that sounds your speed.

S - Flegma brings us Novembers OkändOnsdag with the theme of studios with names that sound like game names.

C - Here Flegma does some introspection on 2017 on dtoid, and looks a bit into the future of what 2018 holds-all set to a poem called Desiderata. Give it a looksie if so inclined.

N - Elia Pales presents their thoughts on why the Switch probably won't hit the sales goals set forth for it by Nintendo. I'm not entirely sure I agree with it, given that the Switch seems to be getting larger but I don't really overly invest myself in how many sales it gets as long as it does well so I'm not too fussed either way.

T - Mullon provides their thoughts on Batman:Arkham knight and some of its story beats-its mostly a stream of consciousness thing as the author notes so it mostly sticks on that. I might suggest some images in future blogs, but other than that its a fine stream.

T - Sonic429 gives their initial impressions of the nintendo switch, four days from purchase. Overall seems positive, with minor quibbles though one expects both from Nintendo to some degree for their product.

F - BatesBram discusses a movie called Make the Yuletide Gay.

Shame, that. 

May your fission be binary and your growth forever exponential.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Villains that did nothing wrong

Villains in all media, not just video games, can end up being a dime a dozen. Far too often, a villain's motives boil down to "I am a bad, and so I do bad things. Fear me." While this format has worked for countless stories, at this point in my life (the ripe old age of 20) I’ve become jaded and grumpy, finding myself rolling my eyes when I see yet another antagonist wreaking havoc with no background or reasoning presented as to why they’re being such a butthole.

What’s far more interesting to me is when a villain’s motives or actions come across as justified, perhaps leaving you rooting for them to defeat the protagonist [insert Elder God Tier villain meme here].

My favorite example of this would be Meruem from the Chimera Ant arc of Hunter x Hunter. While he doesn’t necessarily fit the exact mold I laid out above, he’s easily one of the most dynamic and curious villains I’ve ever come across. For the sake of not spoiling what is perhaps one of the most exciting, action-packed, and tear-inducing arcs in anime history, I won’t delve into the details of what makes Meruem so great. Instead I encourage anyone who hasn’t seen Hunter x Hunter to set aside some time and plow through the series. Really, it’s that good.

But hey, that’s just how I feel. I’m sure there are folks out there who prefer their villains to be simple. If I ever met one of these theoretical people I might have a panic attack, but I’ll deal with that should the time come. I’m sure after some deep breaths we would get along. Maybe we could even snuggle, should my husband allow such an event to transpire.

All said and done, we arrive at the topic of this month’s Bloggers Wanted: Villains that did nothing wrong. Due to communication errors, this entry in the hallowed halls of Bloggers Wanted is a tad late. Regardless, all you have to do is head over to the Community Blog section of the site, and whip up a Cblog about a villain who you feel was secretly the good guy all along.
