LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 12/10/12 + mcgeeisms

Running short on time seems to be a recurring theme lately. Let's keep these CAPS above 55 MPH lest we all explode for vaguely-explained reasons.

So this past week, the Recappers all saw that the universe is against them, hence there not being a new Fapcast. Luckily, and completely unrelated in any way, I bought Miami Hotline on sale, so I had something to do. That game is quite something. I am really digging the vibe of the entire thing. The atmosphere created by the simple visuals, colors, and music, mixed with quick, gruesome murder is nothing short of beautiful. But the game does not get along with my PC. So it's been short bursts for me. It's a horrible tease, because I have a feeling I could and would finish that game in one glorious, bloody session. At least I can mainline the soundtrack like a true fiend.

The Hotline Miami OST goes with...anything I guess. Including wrapping presents and baking and drinking. Topical!

Speaking of topical, cream. Speaking of cream, whipped. Speaking of whipped, cream. Shit...loop. Oh well. It almost went somewhere.

CAPPY HOLIDAYS
Also, be on the lookout for end of the year CAPS by the...end of the year.


* - kona has a really good piece regarding the "Gamers" and "Players." It's a divide many of us probably feel, but it's hard to put into words without sounding like a dick. Good job, kona.

* - Where are you? Why are you reading this? Do enjoy hurting people? Joe Fancypants certainly does. Answer the call.

* - Cheesy erections, space people, and the term Dtoidians. It's GlowBear's gaming moment(ish) of 2012!

* - Secret Womens Business: Labiplasty Surgery

S - Snealiv has a very unfortunate look...back...at Super Monday Night Combat. Maybe these guys shouldn't have abondoned XBLA.

A - I should have figured the Jimquisition was partially responsible for this topic. burningsoup also has some thoughts on dumbing down, easy mode, and options.









T - Little Inferno will probably make you think, but perhaps you should just burn all the things.

T - Esteban Sky Cuevas has played some stuff over the last few weeks, and has some quick thoughts on them stuffs.

T - Noisetank41 got into Hotline Miami as well, as felt compelled to share some thoughts about it.

T - Lenigod's first recommended game of 2012: Kerbal Space Program."Incredibly low barrier of entry, with a seemingly endless skill roof." Well, there ya go! Fits pretty well with the discussed topic of today.





C - hardcoregamer123 is new, so try and be -somewhat- gentle. He could use some pointers.

L - TripleZer0 has a pretty funny way to help you through the 5 stages of backlog grief.

F - Looks like the evening will end with some hot spam.

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.
