C-Blog recaps of 3/23/13 + 3/24/13 + Philgasms

   0





Welcome to the weekend recaps! Once again we ride together to enjoy all the lovely (and not so lovely) c-blogs this weekend has thrown at us. Not a lot this weekend, so that's kind of nice considering the week or so I've had. That's neither here, nor there though.

Y'all motherfudgers hear about XCOM coming to iPad? AWWWWW YISSSSS. I think it's pretty damn cool at least. That's XCOM on 3 machines in my house. Even more important than that though, was the tease of a bigger threat coming. Does this mean sequel? An expansion? I straight gives no fucks. Either makes me happy as hell. I'm betting sequel though. Anyone who has beaten Enemy Unknown, knows what was said about testing at the end. Firaxis has the engine nailed down now, so really a sequel just needs add a ton of stuff and more maps please. Seriously the same ole damn maps are my biggest gripe about EU.



I can't say anything else has really grabbed me, news wise from PAX at least. Mercenary Kings looks pretty damn amazing and just my type of game, but that's it for me out of all the new stuff (Well Dishonored DLC, but that's DLC). I'm always down for awesome 2D co-op action. Anything Metal Slug-y gets an instant look and sale from me. Doesn't hurt the art is absolutely gorgeous (Paul Robertson gets ALL THE HANDIES!).


Alright, enough bullshitting. I don't have anything to get all passionate about and I don't feel like whining in the recaps (that's for my personal blog), so let's get to capping eh?

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.
