LONG BLOG

C blogs of 6-7-10 and Qalamarisms

   0


It's amazing how quickly my brain shuts down after I finish up the hot mess of BBcode you see below you. In lieu of anything clever or relevant therefore, I present to you an offering of marginally entertaining Youtube videos.


Oh, and that I Hate Mountains Left 4 Dead campaign? It's pretty great. If you'd like to play it with me, my Steam name is also Qalamari.


*-Handy thought about how certain gaming personalities might advertise in the lonely hearts section of the newspaper. The results will be printed on a thin slice of dead tree and you can read them tomorrow morning... or just click this link here and find out about it right now.
*-Does every game need to have a story? One of LawofThermalDynamics' friends thought so, which resulted in this exciting! Dangerous! blog.
*-Since the C blogs have been used to form a choose your own adventure story, anything seems possible. Corduroy Turtle updates yet another road-trip favorite with modern Destructoid technology.


A-While the games/art hoopla is a bit played out in my opinion, Dennis C Scimeca had a fresh take on the concept: games modified specifically to act as art.
A-I've never seen minute one of Lost, so this blog by kjohnson1585 was wasted on me. Elsa says it's worth reading though, and that's enough of an endorsement for me.
A- Fission Mailed wrote down some thoughts about the impending motion-control peripherals for the HD systems, and why he thinks there's a better alternative.
S-If you're going to launch a new series, this is how you do it. BulletMagnet introduces his new series, Magnet School.
P-The cast...
P-of BritToid...
P-went and...
P-introduced themselves.

S-Kytherno had one of those store clerks every gamer dreads. Might be time to find a new game store when your clerk is a bully like this.
I-AusI0 used the format of his initial blog to let us know about Eversion, an indie game now available on Steam.
I-Meanwhile, Slade23 used his to make some E3 predictions. Welcome to Destructoid, both of you.


T-CrimeMinister just finished Mario Galaxy 2, and explains why it's such a rarity.
R-Taptostart took a look at The Simpsons Arcade on iPhone.



M-It's a musical maelstrom as vApathyv runs down a list of songs the new keytar Rock Band peripheral would be great for. If The Final Countdown isn't converted, there's no justice in this world.
M-Alakaiser has some good advice for those who have any sort of an interest in music.
M-Novakaine provided the background music for this session of recapping, paying tribute to Namco's composer version of Rodney Dangerfield.


R-Kaggen spoke in favor of the bizarre, going so far as to play an independent Japanese RPG.
V-DinosaurPizza made a video review of Red Dead Redemption.


F-You're admitting to pitching an idea that isn't your own, the blog has little if anything to do with gaming, and you're asking the community to do your work for you by voting for your concept? Three strikes. YerrrrOUT!

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.
