C-Blog recaps of 10/27/12 + 10/28/12 + Weeniegasms

Happy early hollow weenie!


I love Halloween. The smell of the air (smoke, leaves and the promise of winter), the little kids running around having fun, the smell of blood on my hands and the fear in the eyes of my sacrifice to the dark lord. Candy too. Candy is good. Yep, all hallows eve is a great holiday. The souls of the dead pouring through a portal, fairies playing pranks and my favorite Samhain cd playing the background. Oh and Snickers. Kit-Kats too. Love those things. Ohhh corporate monetization of holidays/beliefs, you so cray cray.

I've always loved this one.


Anyone been playing any horror games? I've been digging back into Dead Space 2 and had forgotten just how good the sound was in that one. Did they win any awards for that? They should have. Fantastic audio and a great game. I love how gory and truly horrifying the creature design is too. It reminds of Guillermo Del Toro's stuff. Human, yet alien at the same time. Stuff that just hits a nerve. Ugh, those babies. *shivers*



What else..... eh, I got nothing, have some caps.

*- Leigh Davidson presents an open letter to the gaming press. Good stuff.
*- Tiq lays out his thoughts on the whole mess going on and brings up some good stuff.
*- Ninjapresident, dropping his thoughts on piracy. I frown upon it mostly myself. Can't say I haven't been guilty of it though.

A- ManWithNoName is an old fart who doesn't like old farty things. Get him a glass of Metamucil and a Lawernce Welk record, but hold the old school gaming.
P- The beautiful Communitoid has returned with episode 2! Really digging this one. Good work y'all.
A- The Kodu discusses the new PS3 hack/key unlock thing. At least it happened now and not a few years ago. Plus most people are too stupid to be able to do this.
P- The Scary Granules podcast debuts. From the minds of GlowBear and Panza, say hello to accents and probably a bunch of strange ramblings! I haven't gotten a chance to listen yet, as these two hate SEMI DEAF PEOPLE ;)
A- MisterDonut fails to see the value in certain game over screens. Didn't I stab you last week? Oh shit..... ZOMBIE!



E- Last Call for Nihil's forum werewolf game. I call team Jacob!
E- Nihil begins/lays out the game and a soundtrack.
D- How cool is PK493? Check out what he did with bbain! Which reminds me, HEY ANDY, HOW WAS THAT PAX ADOPTION? dick
I- A re-intro from a gentlemen, who happens to be bearded. He's a bearded gentlemen. Beard. Gentle. Men.
C- Togutas discusses losing the drive to finish games and how that correlates to price.
C- Why do we buy games, is the question BenefitEvil poses. Ummmm, we like them? Silly.
E- Skid Row Trash rallies the Max Payne 3 gang, for a triple xp weekend.
I- Afro Man says what up, has a dead console and is going to play some Guild Wars 2.
C- Bearded Gent discusses Microsofts policy of bending over their customers and repeatedly effin them. BREAK THE CYCLE PEOPLE.

T- Whats Zephyr Gamgee's favorite game? Read on... (Totally my favorite bird-type creature ever)
T- LoonyWoman shares some thoughts on Witcher and more gushing for Guild Wars 2! That angry chicken better have been smited.
P- DimmuJed gives us a look at Hawken. I want this game hard.
V- Dao2-SKP has a Hawken vid and intent for doing a contest. Drop by and vote on how ou'd like the contest to go.

A- SlackerTLO draws..... awesome.... horrifying......stuffings....
A- MEAT FACE on the second screen! SCHWING!
A- SlackerTLO has another one for us. X-mas is getting freaky this year.

C- The Darkerman wants to update us on his goings on, but doesn't give us much info to go on.
R- I won't fail you because I liked your approach and I dig the review system. Check out the site Siegarettes is pimping folks.
C- windowman88 calls it a review of Borderlands 2, but it's not very review-ish. More gushy than anything.





Well that wraps it up for me, your gracious host and possible psycho. Have a safe Halloween and send me any razors you find your candy. I need them. Oh and would someone please punch that one asshole who gives out healthy food. You know the fuck bag I speak of. I'm sorry but I don't let my kids eat for shit and you wanna push your hippie bullshit on me tonight? On fucking Halloween? Ever since I had kids that's been pissing me off. At least have an extra bowl of real candy for the kids who aren't fat pigs.

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.
