C-Blog recaps of 2/16/13 + 2/17/13 + 2/18/13 + Fried Spam-gasms

   0




My dad used to make fried spam and eggs for me for breakfast. He knew I fucking that salty slab of jiggle. But he made me eat that shit. It was supposed to teach me to appreciate any food. Just kind of made me pissed off instead. Dick. Totally learned to appreciate food though. Dick. Still hate Spam though. God.....

SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH SSSSSSPAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMM!



Seriously. Eff those guys and gals doing it, six ways to Sunday. Especially Samit. Dick.

What ya all been dooooiiiiiinng? Enjoying Aliens: CM? MORE LIKE ALIENS: BM! AMIRITE? Oh god you lying assholes. Why? Why the fuck can no one take that franchise seriously anymore? Was the goofy ass 4th movie and the AvP movies? Did that make it ok to shit on almost 30 years of Sci-Fi glory? God I'm so mad at Gearbox and all the lies surrounding this game. Yes, I should of seen the writing on the wall, but i seriously thought Gearbox of all people would put out something playable and fun. Couldn't even shoot through open doorways and railing, the first few days. UGH! A lot of wrote blogs about this wet, sopping pile of crack head feces, detailing all the bullshit on this. What we should have seen. Man, I wish I had opened my eyes. At least in my case it wasn't too bad of a loss. $30 digital on PC (GMG with a coupon and credit).



The backlash from this and how hard people are going to Gearbox is very interesting to me. Personally you fuck with me once, I'm done. Your product will be bought used or heavily discounted. Especially with the garbage tied to this little debacle. FFS Gearbox, did you really think this was ok? No one should have that much goodwill with it's customers to be able to put a turd like CM out and be forgiven. Not in my world. We will see though when Borderlands 3 comes out. I'll wait. The one that will suck, is if we get a real Brothers in Arms. I'm dying to finish Baker's story, but not enough to forgive this travesty and lack of customer respect. The thing that just kills it for me, is the quiet. You're going to push this turd across the dinner table to me and not even stand up and own up to it? I FUCKING SAW YOU DO IT STUPID! Nope. No one is doing that. They think we will all forget. Most probably will. Not this dude. Too old and been burned too many times. The saddest thing about CM for me is the missed potential. You can see it everywhere. Ahhhh fudge-sicles.

Let's do some caps and try to enjoy ourselves.

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.
