My apologies for being MIA last week, I had to make a business trip to Philly and boy do I not like cheesesteaks with cheese wiz on them.



SO

Couple things to chat with you lovely people about. Firstly, I saw The World's end and loved, loved, loved it. It could very well be the finest installment of the Cornetto trilogy, which I was unaware until this movie was a thing. Apparently in each movie someone is eating a Cornetto or at the very least one is referenced. Each colour of the wrapper relates to the theme of the movie. Really cool stuff. It's inspired me to go back and look out for them in the other movies when I can finally find the DVDs.



And HUGE guys. I've been thinking a lot about it and I really like the idea of it. It reminds me a lot of how PSN+ is at the moment. It gives you things instead of putting things already in place behind a paywall. I'll probably extrapolate more on the subject when I join in a community blog dedicated to it.

I also caved and pre-ordered GTAV. I had great hesitation toward it because I actually didn't like GTAIV. It took much of the silliness that I enjoyed about the series and did away with it. It was too silly and lacked the spirit of GTAIII that I loved so much. To me, it wasn't the spiritual successor that it was touted to be. I am excited for the fifth installment though. It looks as though they will be bringing some of the old style back.



What are your thoughts on.. the hodgepodge of shit I talked about?

Let's recap

* - Some nice words about Dtoid inspired by the inception of HUGE.

* - Callusingy asks why Ryse deserves the hate it does in the finely written piece.

A - Grey-ee needs to flush this idea out a little more. I'd love to see him elaborate.

A - Malfy-ee's thoughts on launch day experimentation.

T - Suuda-ee coming at you with some Racing the Sun impressions. Digging this art style.

R - Some quick reviews for you a la Boomy

T - Dusty wasn't as taken with Saints Row as he thought he'd be. A fine blog on expectations.

R - Kingy reviews the Walking Dead Episode 1. Not sure that this game is for me but I love the idea of it.





L - P0RNZ

L - Some commentary vids if you're in the mood for a laugh.

F - Do you even lift?

S - As I say at least once a week, write a blog about your video. Otherwise it's just spam I'm too hungover to make a half-decent joke about.

Yesterday's Pitt tailgate will be the death of me...

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.
