LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2/5/2018 + Lost Recap + New Job

   0

I actually had a recap subject ready and typed two days ago. However, I wrote it at my work PC and forgot to email it to myself prior to doing this. At least I have a recap ready for next week then.

Anyways, since I don't have anything really to talk about, I will just share small update about me.

First, note that the title of this recap is deceiving. I didn't actually start a new job. No, its the same company, but I am in a new assignment. While it is the sae company, and I am working literally in the same building, it ight as well be a different job. For all intents and purposes, its feels like the first week of school.

I don't know what the hell is epxected of me, and I need to build-up my reputation from scratch. Previously, I was valued as a dependable and capable Project Engineer. Now, I basically need to prove myself in a different job all over again.

A- Like myself, Goemar didn't actually play many games released in 2017, and here is his list of the best 11 (or is it more) games he played last year.

S- Here is another great Comments of the Week blog from the COTW team, truly a magnificent effort.

S- Continuing with his satirical Yellow Pages series, Riobux crafts one of his most believable stories yet. Featuring "news" that actually has a lot of nuance imbeded in it.

 

 

R- You may not remeber Nokia anymore, and if so you would probably not know something called the N-Gage ever existed. Anyways, Kerrik52 reviews Xanadu Next, a game that looks to be really good. Just do yourself a favor and play it on the PC.

 

 

Anyway, here are the games I am currently playing. Those in bold I am going to review when completed:
  • Little King's Story (Wii).
  • Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars (DS).
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (Genesis).
  • Xenoblade Chronicles X (Wii U).
  • Wolfenstein: The Old Blood (PS4).
  • The Adventures of Pip (Wii U).
  • Culdcept: Revolt (3DS).

Also, here are my latest reviews:

And Latest Blog in my "where the hell is...?" blog series"

Be Lucky

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.
