Cblog Recaps of 04/02/14 and KERBISMS

   0


After enjoying quite a few games on Steam with my new laptop, my library has grown exponentially. Steam sales are an addiction unto themselves, enabling me to buy so many games at slashed prices. But of course, I'm talking as if this is new. You all probably are all used to this Steam nonsense. In fact, you guys probably have a resistance built up over the years. Me on the other hand? I'm not sure what will happen to me when the Steam Summer Sale rolls around. Oh my god am I not ready to face that.

In the short time I've officially started Steam, I've bought...

- Mercenary Kings
- Kerbal Space Program (-40%)
- Luftrausers (-10%)
- Volgarr the Viking (-25%)
- Humble Indie PC & Android bundle ($5)
- Humble Destructoid bundle ($10)
- FFVII (-60%)
- Eryi's Action (-60%)
plus everything I'd already bought before I had a decent PC in preparation for such a moment like...

- Prison Architect
- Humble Indie bundle 3
- Terrariia
- TF2
- Portal
- L4D[2]

Not only that, but I'm obsessed with collecting Steam cards. I'm finally one card away from crafting my first legit badge for FTL. Plus I've stockpiled badges for Prison Architect, TF2, KSP, and Hotline Miami.



Speaking of Hotline Miami, I of course owned it before the Dtoid bundle came out (-60% sale). I've got a spare code up for grabs if you happen to not have that game yet. If you want it, follow me on twitter (@Striderhoang) if you want. Mainly comment here if you want it with a number choice (for RNG purposes) and the name of a spaceship I should dub one of my future KSP ships.

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.
