C-Blog Recaps for 6/15/13 + Philgasms

   0



Well happy Father's Day to my fellow dads out there. This has been a bittersweet day for me the past couple years, due to the loss of my own father, but I wasn't in a funk about it this year at least. I miss the big asshole, but I know he's better off wherever he's gone to. As for myself, today kind of sucked for other reasons, but fuck it. I got two beautiful kids and I am not dead yet at least. Not a lot to say, due to beingtired from work, a trip to Monterey and of course, kids. So have some Saturday caps and I'll see you tomorrow, as I'm covering for the Smurfmeister.


* - A good blog examining E3 from ManWithNoName.

S - C is the letter of this entry into Shaxams ongoing series on game design.

S - Mike's Musings: E3 Week


I - Say hello to Option1Soul.

I - Say hi to HGHambo. I fucking love that name. Like esteemed ham. Mmmmmmm ham.

C - Spieler Dad think 3D TV is in trouble.

E - Weekend Warriors says hug your Dad. Unless he sucked. Then just fuck him. Wait not like that.....

I - Say hello to Alain! You might need to translate this though.

D - ArkCo #21 - It Keeps Getting Better.

T - NeoValis is not digging where Thief is going.

T - Silver Waseskuk makes some Smash predictions in this well put together blog.



V - Troy throws down some reactions to E3 this year, in video form.

C - Pope needs to work on the approach. Coming off a bit dickish.

V - Mikki thinks Cliffy B doesn't get it. I agree, the guy lost touch with fans and consumers a long time ago.




No fails... YAY! Peace.

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.
