C-Blog Recaps for 6/8/13 Philgasms

   0


Someone needs to clean those damn toilets. Jesus. How y'all doing? Excited for E3? Not to be a dick, but I'm not. Not for any negative reasons, but I'm very content with I have gaming wise now. I don't feel I need anything else. Yes, even you MGS V. It feels weird dismissing a Metal Gear game, but there it is. I'm swimming in awesomeness. This past week saw the incredibly awesome Gunpoint enter my library, as well as Zeboyd's followup to Penny Arcade 3 (I GET TO REVIEW IT AND GOT A REVIEW COPY YAAAAAAAAY!), as well as the return of my favorite Resident Evil in some years to my library; Revelations. Fucking loves me some Raid mode.


That's me and Panza whoring it up in Raid mode. I have a major beef with international co-op though. It lags pretty fucking bad. Certain times of the day are ok, but Capcom needs to beef up the servers. Played with someone in the same region as me today and we had no problems. Panza and I though, have had nothing but. It sucks, but I can always solo or play with other Americans I guess. I just really want to show off my lovely Lady Hunks :)


It's a damn fun game regardless of server issues (that will hopefully disappear as we move away from launch, I doubt Capcom will fix them) and I'm impressed with PC port. They listened to feedback from the demo and fixed the controls and patched a few other things and the whole thing works great. Looking forward to co-oping the story mode now as well too. That's a neat addition. Alright, I need a few matches before work tonight, so let's get to capping. Recapping that is.

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.
