C Blog Recaps of 01/14/13 + mcgeeisms

   0

Welcome one and all to the sideshow that. Is. THE RECAPS! As my fleshy sex doll PhilKenSebben pointed out in yesterday's recaps, I haven't been around much lately. There are certain reports about me playing board games with the Ancient Ones, that I will neither deny or confirm. However, I can say that if I was playing said games with said entities, I definitely won, and was granted several things. Namely, my freedom. I needed that back. But perhaps more amusingly, I finally garnered the position of Dream Wrangler that I desperately was craving. As head of sleep-kings, I put my new powers into use as soon as I could.

Don't believe me? Check out the front page today. I've infested some of Destructoid's finest editors' dreams with my own thoughts! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

SEE YOU IN YOUR DREAMS, DTOID


CAPS for you, haps?



* - UsurpMyProse beat Dark Souls. Hard. But on the road to sweet victory, he was assaulted by thoughts of assaulting caused by being assaulted. Read about the five bosses that made him most want to fist-greet a baby in his facial region.

P - A new episode of Binary Chode! Listen to the science, and check out the show notes/links. All you need to know, is that animal sex counts as science. So don't feel bad.

P - Secret Moon Base is back, and comes bearing gifts of blab. They gab about this & that and maybe videogames. They also give Far Cry 3 an awful score. Come register your hate/praise. All heil be the Human Fiddler Crab Lord.





I - DePeir is new here, and has a somewhat short intro for us. We do get a feel for some of the things he likes, but not a lot about himself. Go say hi and ask him stuff! +1 for see-through plastic.

I - DpadJoe introduces himself by giving his thoughts on sexuality in gaming, and lack of LBGT characters specifically.

I - Another introduction, say hello to Oven Fries! He sucks at Dark Souls PVP. I'm sure there's one or two folks around here that could offer up some tips ;)

T - Hey, It's Scott from Fullicide! He assures us that he's a real person, thereby making me suspicious that he is an android or body-snatcher of some sort. Also, he has some thoughts on the "Probation" period that can be applied to you in COD; Black Ops II. Do you think it's fair? Do you just not care? Come over here and wave your hands in the air.









F - Students health insurance is important. That's a fact. Maybe.

F - Is child health insurance more important? Decidedly, yes.

F - Remember that Rocko episode? Where a satellite crashed into Rocko's house?

F - The one where Bucky could really only build bathrooms, but it wasn't even him doing the work? It was his female "assistant"? That was pretty funny.

F - Slolar Planlels.

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.
