C-Blog recaps of 9/22/12 + 9/23/12 + Lootgasms

   0


Howdy hosers. Not much going on this week. Pretty boring actually. Nothing to play, nothing to do. I wish some awesome, loot filled game would come out. Something that married FPS with a little rpg or something. Maybe have it co-op? The kids seem to dig that. Put in a bunch of easter eggs and pop culture. Yeah. That might be cool. Oh well, shame it doesn't exist. I'm depressed now, so this will be quick this week. I mean, I'm not trying to rush so I could go do something else...... not at all.



*- GlowBear throws out a fantastic write up on giving the disabled some options and representation in games. I wonder if Borderlands 2 has disabled options....
*- The awesomely named MisterDonut rolls into Shadow Moses 14 years too late. Or was it too late.... You know what it's not too late for? Finding Michael in Sanctuary.
*- A well formatted, fantastic write up on Double Dragon Neon and its 80s love by Jorgeill. Speaking of 80s love, I found a mission last night, involving ninja mutants. Mmmm hmmmm. Pizza!
*- The Gameslinger said he'd be back and he wasn't effin around. Coming back swinging, with this absolutely fantastic look at The Dark Eye. I remember this game freaking me out and loving it. Was one of my first PC titles in a long time too. It's not however, Borderlands 2. Sad really.

S- This is it. This is the end of Grethiwha's top 25 Wii list. What's next? Top 25 skins for Borderlands 2? Ooohhh, I know: Top 25 lines from bandits in Borderlands 2. Or how about....
S- A very unusual and interesting top 20 games of all time list. Only part 1 though. Hey whatsacow, not one mention of any lands with borders? WTF?
A- 1234271.... shares his/her 10 hardest bosses. I haven't found any decently crazy bosses in Borderlands 2 yet, but I'm only a lv. 16.
P- Twice the action, twice the excitement, twice the Zero Cool podcast episodes! I wonder if this consumes 2 ammo per shot....
P- Episode 79 of TheFilterPodcast. Found an assault rifle with a high fire rate (9.3 I think) and explosive damage, with a base of 79 damage, She's purty.

C- Last call for FTL! Winner will be picked tomorrow morning and announced in the afternoon. I'm almost done with that daylight badass challenge. The 100 rank one. Awww yeah.

S- Atheos does a great write up about MMO's and how Guild Wars 2 is actually bringing folks together, instead of forcing them to solo like the other games. I like to solo in Borderlands 2. It is more fun with friends though.
C- A discussion on female characters in games, from whatsacow. Lilith is a lady. So is Maya....
C- Lost: One sense of adventure. If found please contact Bigboss0110. I'll check Pandora for it.
E- The Gameslinger is returning to Dtoid. I wonder if those pistols have elemental bonuses?
C- Troy ponders why and how we make characters for games. Are we being real? Is that who we feel, we are? Can I squeeze in at least 2 hours of BL2 before bed?
B- It was Smurfee's BIRFDAY on Sat! Everyone send him hi-res pictures of your junk and someone send him a copy of Borderlands 2, so I can play with him.

T- Project MILITARY (HOO-RAH) discusses why we play the hard stuff. This is not about Borderlands 2.
T- The almighty Holmes, gives us his top 10 things to love about RE6. I think it might be sarcasm. Not sure. Should've wrote about Borderlands 2, Holmes. C'mon now.
T- Elect-Nigma shares his views on the whole DmC thing. Personally, I'm done caring about the mess. I've got a wasteland to explore. Loot to find and a handsome bastard to kill. It's time to hit the Border. *cues up Bon Jovi's Wanted*



A- The amazing work of KodyKoala is back on DTOID! WOOOO, Buy a raffle ticket to win this amazing Hungry Hungry Koopas piece. I'd prefer Hungry Hungry Skaags, but that's just me.

?- This post very good for making horny pizza with babes. I make many rupees from home playing Borderlands 2. You want marry hot Rita penis?
R- There's something going on here. A story of some sort. But we need some more to figure out exactly what's going on ShadauFoot. Also, you should try to work in a Vault Hunter or two. I don't care if they're different games.
C- This one just hits the ground running. No lead-in or explanation really. A little work and this could be a very interesting blog Snoogans. #Borderlands2






BORDERLANDSBORDERLANDSSMElLMYHANDSTHEYSMELLLIKEBORDERLANDSBORDERLANDS! 2. I'm addicted. My cockles are secured in it's grasp. My sub-cockles even. Guess what? I'm out!

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.
