C Blog Recaps Of 11/05/12 + mcgeeisms

   0

Hello, reader-folk! Good [insert time/day] to you all. Looks like mcgeeisms are a little late today, so we should keep it brief.

This week has really flown by, with new games, podcasts galore, and the country doing a lot of arguing and such. Most important of all, though, is THIS. A new Shantae game, you guys. For 3DS. The rest doesn't even matter. Not really, anyway.

Oh yeah: go vote. Or else.
SMURF/CAPS 2012



* - I want to fail it for the lack of MGS2 love, but MisterDonut makes up for it in glorious fashion by loving Snake Eater as hard as possible. A must-read for Solid fans.

* - N7 reminds us that he is the one true gamer. The challenge has been issued, ladies and gents. Thank you based Scoville.

* - digitaldebaser asks the question: Is games journalism being dominated by new media? A very good, interesting read, and relevant to us here.

A - I knew these blogs were coming soon. StriderHoang saw Wreck-It-Ralph. He liked it. But it did make him think, specifically about the relationship between the split audience of the movie.

S - Kyle MacGregor updates us his backlog quest with some short impressions.

C - PhilKenSebben is giving away Assassin's Creed III, entry is still open!

E - Dtoid Seattle (new group!) makes good on their promise, and meets up to see Wreck-It-Ralph!

I - Go say hello to ColtonPhillips, that lovely man. He's intro-ing and sharing a game with us! Also, make sure to tell him to say more things about himself, because he should.

I - Another intro! This time it's Bankrupt Gamer, and to start off he laments about over-saturation. It's a topic many of us should be quite familiar with.

I - Must be new user day y'all! tav7623 jumps right in with a blog about what Capcom should and shouldn't do, if they decide on an RE2 remake. *shudders*

C - A case of the Mondays, eh??? Help ConnorTheScot get them juices flowing! Not...those juices. The creative/productive ones. Ya pervs.

R - djvlive has an amusing review, or "The Good, The Bad & The Ugly," for Natural Selection 2.

T - Jon Hartley is simply not feeling the November releases. Except for Midway Arcade Origins. Read on how Jon is apathetic and stuff.

F - LOOK. AT. MY. DICK. Also, Jonathan Holmes' blog about his "new" project Teenage Pokemon. Constructive criticism is mucho welcome.

S - ekoala2002 is raffling off these fan-FUCKING-tastic Megaman Rock 'Em Sock 'Em robots. Only $3 per ticket, and you know you totally want to enter that shit.

C - This is not bad, but I'm not sure how I feel about just linking it.

F - Viewtiful Joe love is a viewtiful thing. Skirting around bans is not.

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.
