Cblog recaps 11/09/08 +Randombullisms

   0

I'm so angry and frustrated. I got Fallout 3 for until Sunday night. I've yet to receive an important phone call. My free time has been going less and less towards Bonerquest. I'm getting close to sending out a test version to people. Not set in stone, but maybe next week some people can test play it for me. I must warn you, that test will be more about looking for bugs and glitches, spelling errors, and making sure enemies don't murder you. I also want to see how the testers react to the game. Bonerquest is probably not suited for anyone who doesn't laugh at scatological humor or someone that doesn't like video games. I'm curious to get a reaction from people. I will say that the boss enemies and monsters I showed off have gotten strong reactions. Again, don't want to show off everything at once. You gotta play the game to see it all.

Will you accept the Bonerquest?

Look for a full post from me about it soon with more screen shots and information.


*- The 8-Bit water pipe makes me smile. No matter how much I've seen it.
*- A Zombies Bite... (write up about zombie bites in Resdient Evil not turning you into a zombie.)
*- Big post about never being satisfied with Sonic The Hedgehog. I couldn't read it all and thought "I'll pick it. That's the nice thing to do." So if you want to read about Sonic, go ahead. This also has a "part 1" attached, so I assume there are more parts.
*- This post is in response to a kotaku article, I think. The length of this one made me actually groan out loud. It is late at night, I want to play Fallout 3, and I have about four more posts to recap. Do any other recappers read all these posts or just skim them with a good once over?

N- From Pedro Blandino comes a post about Dr. Light being playable Street Fighter IV? Destructoid's editor in chief comments "This is actually kind of old; it may have just appeared in the new Famitsu, but this in a book that Capcom had distributed at this year's TGS. I actually just threw mine out. :-/ But I don't think Dr. Light will be in Street Fighter. I'll eat my words if I'm wrong, though!"

F- Really bad joke from a friend. Somehow also excuses Naim Master for not being in FNF, I guess?

-(randombullseye)
If you want to play the Call of Duty World at War beta with me tonight (yes, late night/early morning is acceptable) or tomorrow add me, message me, whatever. I use randombullseye as my gamer whatever on xbox live, so if you want to do that, ask me and I might play with you. Hopefully that last's throughout monday as well as tomorrow. I'm trying to play it and play my rented Fallout 3. I'm leaning towards keeping Fallout 3 an extra week to finish it up, but that means I might not buy it goes down in price. If you want my opinion on it, it's a great game. I really am liking it a lot. If I find myself with an extra sixty bucks, this would be worth buying. Might do it just to play through it a couple more times. So much to see, so much to do. What's really creepy is that I've been to D.C. and some of this stuff looks familiar. Not exactly to scale, but the metro tunnels look enough like the metro to give me a bit of a chill.

We should seriously start recaps at noon instead of midnight.

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.
