Cblog recaps from March 1, 8 and 15. Life, lateness and libraries.


Hey guys, and welcome once again to the Thursday recap! In case you were wondering where I've been with these, I just started working through Alberta Job Corps, so I've been pretty tired from that after not working for like, 2 years. And THEN I got sick, so that was fun too. But I'm happy to say that I think things are going great so far! It feels nice to be working again, and the people at job corps are super supportive. I finished doing First Aid Training today!

I've also re-discovered that libraries are awesome! I had someone recently enlighten me on how libraries have updated since I last went, so I immediately went to check it out. Ended up borrowing a bunch of movies, games and books. So far I've figured out game wise, that I do not like Elite Dangerous or Rodea the Sky Soldier, and that I like Elex way more than I thought I would. The fact it gives you a jetpack right away is a big plus.

Other than that it's been more of the same. Playing dnd and Magic the Gathering with buddies every week. Getting some Monster Hunter and Warframe in when I can. Looking for sweet deals at the grocery store. That kinda stuff. So now that that's outta the way, let's move onto those recaps I'm behind on!

* - Bass has made us more custom dtoid Magic The Gathering cards! They're awesome! Check em' out!

* - Marcel Hoang aka Strider let's us know his current fav weapons in MHW. He does have a Charge Blade in there, so I guess his opinion is valid. Go check them out and tell him yours!

T - Batman is an inspiration to many, and here Zordan tells us how Batman has colored his views in gaming. Hopefully it didn't involve a tragic origin story.R - taterchimp gives us his thoughts what he likes and dislikes about FF12. I'll give a fast rundown of my thoughts too; Bad=Vaan and Good=Fran
S - We got an interview with Filipino Pro-Wrestler Robin Sane done by JBlaze! I'm not a wrestling guy, but if you are give it a read!

R - Oh man! Kerrik52 has a totally legit real I swear review of Farcry 5 up! What? It's not out yet? I dunno Kerrik is a pretty stand up bro, he would't just make a fake review for fun. Right?

T - 1 year after the Switch's release, Shoggoth2588 give us his thoughts on it and the Wii-U. I still can't afford a Switch myself, but someday...

R - Flegma gives us a blast from the past with an old school review of Yie Ar Kung-Fu, which as it turns out is 3 years older than me! That's crazy!

T - What are you playing right now? JBlaze want to know, and also let us know what he's playing! For me in short; Warframe, MHW, and Elex.

T - IDrawOnTape gives us his tale of woe with his experience with Gamefly. Hopefully it gets better buddy!

V - SquareElite gives us the scoop about SqueEnix's live Final Fantasy XV Alternative Time Report. The video on it is in the cblog, so take a gander!

R - Lord Spencer fill us in on his upcoming plan of Sega Saturn reviews. I'm looking forward to it!

L - We're going on a nostalgia trip with LaTerry, who tells us about one of his childhood book classics "he Transall Saga"! I was library kid myself, but mostly Goosebumps.

L - It's time for dephoenix's Book of the Month! This time we got a NSFW selection called "My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness". Seems self explanatory. Check out his thoughts on it, but not in public!

F - We got a review of the new Tomb Raider movie from Rudorlf. I wonder if they have that part where Lara bites a guys ear off?

? - The Baked Potato let's us know how all the cool kids on his block are getting into Rukus. I think it's a band? The description is kinda lacking and I'm too lazy to google it. Ask him in the comments I guess!

Alright, that catches me up on my recaps. Now I'm going to catch up on some gaming. Or read some Dresden Files. Or make dinner. Or even just chill. Have a great weekend guys, and have a great dtoid bday!

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.
