C Blog Recaps of 02/04/13 + mcgeeisms

Late CAPS around this piece. The Cappers have been busy with this & that, but we should be back on track now. Especially since we recorded a new Fapcast within a decent time frame of the last one. It's...uh...great! Yeah; great stuff. It actually felt really weird after such a long break from 'casting. It should be up soon for your crusty ears.

Since I didn't talk much about what I was doing on said podcast (constant outside interruptions,) I figure I'll say a few words on it.
I feverishly played through the entirety of Little Inferno on the Wii U. That game really resonated with me. There's some messages that are pretty obvious, but a lot of little things keep you thinking. Thinking things like, "Momma always said I was a pyro." Joking aside, it's something that everyone should experience. If you like World Of Goo, I think you can at least appreciate Little Inferno. The gameplay is really simple, but fun. That and price point may be part of what it's attempting to say, so not everyone will be into it. Go read Jonathan Holmes' review, as he sums most of it up pretty well.

I also finished The Walking Dead. Bad times were had.

CAPS, for you: POSSIBLE NSFW IMAGES FOLLOW.



* - SouthwallCornerClub (and Chechosaurus,) get into some theories about two iconic characters from Dark Souls: Ornstein and Smough.

* - Bronze Kettle busts down the door with this intro. He gets deep into why RTS games just seem to be fading away. Kind of sad, but filled with some truth. Go say hello.

* - Awesome intro (finally) from Roberto Plankton.













T - CaimDark thinks perhaps EA isn't supporting the Wii U as strongly as they talked about doing because of Origin, or the lack thereof. I wouldn't say it's implausible.

T - scarritt braves Okami's most difficult challenge, and cheats using modern technology. CHEATS!

R - RoboLeader has some nice succinct mini-reviews.

T - pk fire sure as shit didn't like the end of Persona 4.





? - My Enourmous Hairy Downstairs Kitchen tries to make some friends by taking his clothes off. An effective strategy, in my experiences.

L - Believe it or not, George isn't at home. Poor Zombie Orwell.

F - Word.

F - Extra VR missions as DLC, when there are already VR missions on-disc. What's the dealio?

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.
