Let the grandpa rape begin anew!


So how about that Wii U? Any of you grab that thing? Damn right some of you did, we even have some blogs down there about it! I saw a lot of folks on Twitter gabbing about it as well. Looks like a sweet system, but it's not grabbing me atm. Nothing screams BUY ME NOW! Looks like I'll be waiting awhile before I plunge into another Ninty console (besides the 3ds again).

What I've been doing instead of playing with a new fangled console, is diving more into FTL. I also unfortunately watched Total Recall today. Cool design (minus the ME3 lens flare), shit movie (Colin Ferrell never CLOSES his fucking mouth either!). Now, let us get back to the subject of FTL. I discovered the joy of modding the game and have been having a blast, playing with ships like this:



and this:



I've also turned the fleet off, increased events and encounters and maybe took a super op ship for a cruise. It's been a blast. The game wasn't even getting stale for me, but the minute I saw that Enterprise... hnnnnng.
All these cool things can be found here, along with instructions and the mod manager you'll need. Enjoy that.

What else have I been up too? Hrmmmm.... Well I royally fucked up the Cblog Fapcast, stupid recording program on my phone can't record more than 10m of audio, but I didn't notice that until AFTER we did the show. *FACEPALM* Now I must live in the fear that, at ANY moment, Strider will ninja into my house and strike me down.



Crafty little guy, that one is. He also has cyborg tiger. A Tyborger man! *shudders*

Hrmmmm what else..... Oh yeah! I've also been moving! Yaaay! Completely alone! Booooooo! Every damn muscle I have hurts and I still have about 1/4 of the way to go. 4 years in a house adds up, but I'm really happy about the whole thing. Moving to a bigger house, huge yards (DOGS AGAIN!) and most importantly: SAFER AREA. I'm so sick of all the craziness going on in North Highlands lately. People getting shot and robbed all the time. Apparently I time traveled back to Compton or Detroit in late 90s or something. So, so long ghetto! Hello, backstabbing suburban white people. Anyways, let's do some caps so I can go back to FTL.

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.
