LONG BLOG

C-C-C-C-blogs of 11/21, also starring Striderisms!

   0


I'm hating this week so much.

Amount of hours was the last thing I was concerned with at work. But I have 35 hours this Thanksgiving week. I have 35 hours of work, a lack of feedback on the Fapcast, a disappointing game release, and 8 hours of driving to get through this weekend.

Let's start with the Fapcast. I spent an entire night editing it because we lost a track so I inserted fake voices to hold it up. What do I see for a whole night of devotion? ONE COMMENT. Well fuck, have we plateaued? Because editing this thing takes a lot of personal time. I'd love to use it on other things but nope! I'm using it staring at a screen and mixing audio levels!

Speaking of using time, I'm not used to working 3 days of 7 hour shifts in a row. I phrase it that way because you probably work long hours. But this is a part-time job, so fuck, where does the PART-TIME thing factor in? Jesus Mickey Mouse, you're a slave driver!



So games? I like diving back into BLOPS zombies. It even has rank progression now! But I bought the collector's edition of Adventure Time: Hey Ice King why'd you steal our garbage? I wasn't expecting something great but at least something good. But this? I bought this game yesterday and I beat it today. Probably less than 10 hours. I sat down less than 6 times with the intention of playing it. There are numerous other flaws I can forgive as far as a mediocre game goes. But I felt this length was inexcusable. And all I have now is New Game+. And the Collector's Edition.

Meanwhile, I'm looking forward to getting home and blasting hundreds of zombies after riding the bus across a god forsaken highway. Not to mention score streaks are a pretty ok way of earning our longtime killstreaks. I mean, sentry gun is finally good!

This week has been a little frustrating. I'll probably drive 4 hours to see my girlfriend and just spend the whole sleeping in bed with her, sleeping off this tough as balls week.

Be sure to check out episode 5 of the Fapcast because I don't think anyone caught our community question. I hope episode 6 is easy for once. Or maybe we won't do it. It's been a moody week. Plus I'm going to see my girlfriend Saturday. Do I have time? Historically, no, I don't have time. FOR ANYTHING.

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.
