C blog Recaps of 10/22/12 + mcgeeisms

   0

Whoa what? I died again. That's like...several times that's happened. Despite the community destroying me on a regular basis, I'm back for another mcgeeism/recap thingamajigg. I have some cool thoughts for you, but they're really not in order. Or even coherent. So let's skip that, eh? Another time for nonsense.

For now, capital recappings of Monday's bloggingkins. I will point out, without any sort of bias probably, that the Recaps team started a podcast. There was a trial tun of sorts which actually made it as an episode, and it's down there under Wordtoid. Unfortunately (maybe,) I was sort of busy during the weekend, so my sexy self isn't on the 'cast. Quite a shame for you all. But, we have the much better PhilKenSebben, Wrenchfarm, and leader StriderHoang (which is pronounced Strider HOH-ANG-EE) to soothe your souls.

So grab some whiskey, put your headphones on, start that podcast, and read some blogs by the fireplace. Because your fireplace is definitely by your PC. It's only logical. Mine is, so in case I get mad at the internet, I can throw something into a fire. That's what everyone does, right? Yes, correct. You get an B+.

CAPS in steree-eree-O.


* - Silent protaganists are very commonplace, but should they be? What circumstnaces make it okay to be a mute? Speak up, readers!

* - KingSigy takes a hard look at himself, and realizes he not only cheated (meh; not a big deal IMO,) but lost some of what made gaming special to him.

A - AbsoultePoppycock is making his high school newspaper much better by writing these articles. Check out his first: Are Videogames Art?

P - Another new podcast for that ass! (They seem to be cropping up all over the place, don't they?) This is full of weirdos, like most Dtoid podcasts, but the twist is it's more focused on the Cblogs themselves! Also, since it's all Recappers, I demand we have Beyamor as a semi-regular. So I can get a semi, regularly.



C - Still going on! Last chances to win some Resident Evil!

I - A new Dtoider for us to abuse! Not really. Loonywoman sounds like she'll fit in just fine. Because loony.

S - Sweatmode is back and has some updates for us about his life and indie dreams.

S - MeanderBot takes tasty pics at PAX 2012.

R - CarbonRevenge reviews Rollercoaster Tycoon 3D and it depresses the hell out of me.

A - I really like the way BeatBeat draws Mr. Destructoid. Go tell him you want some shirt designs!





F - Sadly, my Spanish has just gotten worse over the years. (Suck it, France.)

F - Even IF hockey was fun to watch, this would be spam. Spam4Always.

F - This bot has captured my heart and dropped my jaw. UltrasoundUltrasound.

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.
