LONG BLOG

Cblogs from Feb 1st, 2018! And me talking about stuff about me!

   0

Hey guys, it's your buddy NeoTurbo with your recap of the Thursday cblogs! But first up time for some rambling!

You guys playing Monster Hunter World right now? It's pretty much consuming my life right now. My current no job-ness means I have all the time to play it and believe me, I have spent waaaaay too much time on it and (still plan too). I'm in high rank now and pretty much re-grinding to survive the new challenges.

Speaking of jobs, I've decided to get off my "barely supported financially by the government" ass and start trying to work again. I was recommended a place called Alberta Job Corp that helps people like me who've been out of work for awhile get working again. I start later this month! It would be nice to be comfortable financially again.

In other news, I'm house sitting next week! Two friends of mine are getting married this month (yay!), but I wasn't able to go (booo!). But I guess they needed someone to watch the house for insurance reasons, so I'm just going to live there for a week and eat all their food. Fun times!

Alright, time for the recaps!



R - Here Oculin gives us his rundown of Kirby: Battle Royale. Is it a great new play with friends game? I guess you better read to see!

R - Furrybearpanda tells us what he thinks of Dragonball Fighter Z. Spoilers; lots of gushing is involved.

L - dephoenix has his monthly book of the month, this time featuring Not Quite the Classics by Colin Mochrie. I'm a huge fan of the guy, so I think I need to check this book out.

Well that was another edition of the Thursday recap! Tune in next week to see if I accidentally burned my friends house down!

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.
