C-Blog Recaps for 7/20/13 + Goodbye-gasms

   0




This is some bittersweet shit right here. As I said in my whiny blog, I am stepping down from being a recapper. My life is too shit, with too much going on right now, for me to have any extra on my plate. My brain is fucked and everything is..... everything is pretty shit. You guys cheered me up and pulled me out of the deepest part of that funk, but my situation hasn't changed. Thank you all for being so supportive of me. Shit makes me cry like a baby. I'm honored and humbled, to have such support from people like you guys. It gave me drive and helped me not be so down on myself.

The bright side of this is, you get a recapper who is not shit in my place. Let's be real, I suck as a writer. My only skill is that I can convey emotion like a mother fucker. I write from my heart and I believe it shows. Taking my place and returning to you folks is the fantastically awesome: Manchild. That's a big old cup of fuck yeah in my book. I'll still be around as a reservist to suck it up on occasion though.

This set of recaps is special for me though. It marks my one year anniversary as a recapper. Wish I could do another, but... yeah. Let's end this (I'm getting really sad right now) and have some recaps and stupid pics, shall we?

* - Marche100 tells you about making a game (THANKS OBAMA!) and some other things in this great blog.





C - ManWithNoName has some ponderings on Ninty and the Wii U.

E - Weekend Warriors does video games live.

T - TheManchild is all up in Dark Souls again.

T - Kyle MacGregor tells us his favorites (so far) of 2013.

T - Pope has some thoughts on TLOU *SPOILERS*

T - DiZZastergaming writes the best press release for Ubisoft I've seen in awhile.







F - Random thoughts, random fail. Take it to the forums.
F - Don't bother telling me what I'm watching, I won't bother watching. FAIL VID.


I'll see you guys in the forums or maybe in a stupid comment on the front page. I love some of you a lot. Except you. Fuck you.

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.
