C-Blog Recaps for 5/4/13 + 5/5/13 + IDFKgasms

   0




I really just don't know anymore. So tired. I took a new weekend shift awhile back and I no longer sleep on Sundays or Mondays other than a few hours Monday afternoon. It is taking quite the toll on me, but I need the money. What ya gonna do? Thank God my caps haven't been the greatest anyway. Problem is, you all deserve great caps. From someone not half asleep and burnt out beyond recognition. So, I'm thinking of stepping down as a recapper. I'll try to switch days with someone first and I will finish my first year (almost there!), but yeah. This sucks. If I didn't children, it'd be a different story, but I simply cannot go on working, raising kids alone, recapping, programming, podcasting, commenting and contesting it up. As much of a workhorse as I am, even I have my limits. To anyone that actually cares, I'm sorry. Like I said, I'll try and make it work, but I don't have high hopes. I love this job and I love you guys though. So let's enjoy this while it lasts.


I've been trying to unwind in some games lately, but I can't seem to play anything more than a half hour at a time anymore. My brain just can't do it, along with my hands. It's kind of sad. But still totally a first world problem. OH NOES! I have played some cool stuff though. Still big into Orion: Dino Horde. Just a fun game to kick back with and blast some dinos. Played a bit of Poker Night 2. Pleasantly surprised by Cambell's replacement. He does a surprisingly good job. The card game has been stepped up and is more fun, but the AI has a hard on for going all-in at just the oddest damn times. Hopefully they patch that up. If not, it was only $5 and I've had more than $5 worth of fun already. Eh, that's all I've got. Let's cap.


No sauce this weekend. Just this:

A- SongSeven has a well written blog and boobs and stuff.
A- Qlum does a great write up on the cost of gaming.
A- Let's play catch up with Randombullseye.


R- Don't forget you can win some sweet ass Steam games from The Low(er) Tier podcast. IT HAS ME ON IT! WOOOOOO!

E- Weekend Warriors gets perverted.
C- Kodu talks about the need for shovelware. Don't really agree on his definition myself, but hey! Fuck it.
S- Let's take a trip down memory lane with BlinkingPixels and look at Star Wars games.
C- Matt Evans thinks CoD could learn some new tricks from Receiver.
C- The new Xbox friends list/program sounds like Twitter. Lame.
C- Joseph O Hagen flips the bird to AAA games.
I- Say hi to ArkhamJester in this intro, that's not really an intro.

T- Roberto shares some Monster Hunter love.
D- ArkCo made Greenlight. WOOOOOOOOO!
T- Sword of the Stars: The Pit is not the pits, according to Shuuda. I agree.
T- A round-up of Achievements from NICk unCAGEd.
T- Suck it Blood Dragon's PC version. Suck it.
T- AssCreed has changed according to TheAce over here. Not for the better either.
T- A cool read about Dead Space 3 from The Salty Hippo.



V- Rathowreck has a new video series.



F- Love this new copypasta trend. Steal all that credit bitches. Makes ya feel good huh?


I'm out. Time to start dinner and then about 4 hours until I can go back to bed. 4 horribly long hours. With yelling and learning and...... *sigh* Anyone want to marry me?

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.
