Cblog recaps of 12/10/17 - Going to McDougal Street

   0

Come gather 'round Toiders
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waifus
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start gamin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the blogs they are a-crashin'

[Harmonica solo]

I'm behind a week with my recaps but I can't really access them so for everyone who wrote a blog on December 2nd, have no fear I will be recappin' you when the blogs are fixed. As for this weeks recap? If you are reading this that means that the blogs are temporarily working so quickly load them all!

* - NinjaSpped reviews what looks to be a banner year for the 3DS in terms of releases and surprises. I love these end of year posts and posts that look at the positive aspects of gaming. I keep meaning to get a Black Friday 3DS but keep forgetting. Next year gadget, next year!

I - Re-vibe moves from the front-page to the back-alley of Destructoid known as the community. Welcome!

C - Celica bumps their community awards blog, hopefully you can read it or this. Hello? Is there anybody out there?

D - Donley Time returns with another peer review for their game Boss 101 as well as a rallying cry for those who have played the game to recommend/review it on Steam. I personally haven't had a chance to play but it's on the list.

L - It is time once again for Dephoenix's book club. This month it is the graphic novel Lucky Penny which is written by a webcomic creator I used to read devoutly in that time and I didn't know about this at all so thanks for the tip!


Have a good week, don't worry the blogs will be fixed soon.

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.
