LONG BLOG

C Blog Recaps of 11/12/12 + Anniversary mcgeeisms!

   0

These recaps are dedicated to knutaf, because I said they are.



Well, well. It looks like it's time for some mcgeeisms, for some reason. I mean, they should be all long and stuff, and express something or other for Dtoid. They probably won't though. I'm already pretty late with these. Which is somehow fitting.
These are are my anniversary Recaps, for two things at once! It has now been six years since I first joined Dtoid. That's quite some time. It's also my one-year anniversary of damning the Recaps team to their doom, by joining it.

I'd love to do something cool, but I'll probably save it for later in the week, so I don't trample all over the Wrenchisms and Tuesday bloggers. But, I will say that I still love the place and the people and the Recaps and the resurgence of podcasts and the Better People and the everything. It's why I joined the Recappers in the first place. I have a real appreciation for you people, and I wanted to do something to show it. In the past year, I've joined the Recaps team, started an FNF for the 3DS, sort-of started a weekend FNF thingy, been on a podcast, and generally interacted with even more cool folks 'round here. So I'd say that's not bad. I want to do more, but it's been alright. :)

So thanks, staff and community alike, for being cool motherfuckers. The internet would suck without you.
CAPTAIN CAPS





* - Caliban has some wonderful words for us. He's got some great observations about Dishonored, as well as a suggestion on how it could be better. Specifically, in its prologue.

* - A competitive multiplayer version of the MAX SCOVILLE MOUNTAIN DEW CHALLENGE SPONSORED BY DORITOS AND H4LO. Goodbye, Dtoid Seattle. We hardly knew ye.

* - They should make a movie out of this blog, and call it...Drive. Yeah, that would be good.

A - TheKodu reminds you to WATCH YOUR ASS, early adopters. It will happen.

A - Hey! Come watch this guy die! Brandon Dickerson has a story to tell you before his inevitable death. Minecraft is definitely involved. Also, I like this.




THE LOW(ER) TIER PODCAST IS STILL GIVING AWAY ASSASSIN'S CREED 3!

I - tav7623 is new here (the RE2 remake fellow,) and his intro is introspective. Good luck on the backlog! :)

I - Thabass in the hotness. Deal with it. And welcome it. If it gets out of line, slap it. Slap Thabass. /wrists

T - From a blog on beginnings, we jump straight to a blog on endings. Screw the middle. DaviesAntony asks the question, answers it immediately, and explains his answer.

T - aileronroll has some thoughts about nostalgia, and isn't really feelin' it for the current gen.

D - Ev777 has a game to share with us, or, 1/3 of a game. Welcome to Boo Reed's Odyssey.

T - Thabass doubles up with an real blog about being first and/or best. For gaming consoles, that is.

A - anglorum does a super-cool ART for this month's Artists Wanted. It's in the style of Jet Set Radio Future, so you know you want to look at it.

R - Windows 8 may or may not hate people who play games their PC.

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.
