C blogs of 3-28-11 and Qalamarisms


You haven't seen this yet, have you? I just saw it myself a few minutes ago. It picked up 2500 views in about an hour though, so it's well on its way to going viral.

*-If only we could force people to read this before they could sign up for an account. New C-blog boss Kauza drops some advice on those planning their first foray into Destructoid community blogging.
*- Gnarlythotep's Monthly Musing looks at adjustable difficulty and the unfortunate decision to lock the highest level of challenge in some games.
*-It's all too common- we hear about a game only after all hopes of it crossing the Pacific are dashed and dead. Matty125 brings us news of the latest victim.

A-Dakilazical has found new life in an older game thanks to his shiny new 3DS.
A-Portable Nerd gives some first impressions of his experiences with his new 3DS, promising that this will be the first in a series.
A-TriplZero really, really likes Dragon Age 2.
P-Alcoholocast has made episode 24 available. I could really go for one of those word sandwiches right about now.

Once you hear this, you'll poop cinderblocks. Compare and contrast, if you will...

Conclusion: Bianca is the third Mario brother.

E-GameZombie recaps the Game Developer's Conference.
E-Joeisremy invites anyone in the Milwaukee area to a game-themed improv night.
D-Caiters would like your support in her quest to go to E3 on Kmart's dime.
F-Trev could use some help in figuring out what games get played most during the PS3's Friday Night Fights.

R-Gattacast offers up some opinions on Dragon Age 2 so far.
R-Yakulto reviewed THQ's Homefront.
T-jfisco316 thinks Steam is a force for good in the land of PC gaming.
T-Harumph thinks Prey 2 might be worth keeping an eye on.
T-Scissors runs off a list of games he thinks would be great on the new 3DS hardware.
D-JSL would like you to try out his game on Newgrounds and let him know what you think.

A-ThatKidWhoDraws looked at the transformed knight Glenn with a fresh eye.
M-Mratomix thinks the phenomenon of Rebecca Black's Friday has some deeper ramifications.

C-Crime bears truth, and your avatar/name combo doesn't exactly inspire confidence that you're offering up an unbiased opinion.
C-Some context would be nice. Posting up a bunch of 3DS codes looks like gibberish without it.

F- I think you need a "lesson," adbot. And by "lesson" I mean beating.
F- Lol references.
F-A shame Kauza's post didn't go live until after you'd posted this. You can always delete it and try again, though. That was a hint.

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.
