LONG BLOG

Cblog Recaps of 2/5/14 and POKEBANKISMS

   0



First thing's first, two blogs were criminally upcapped. That's a word right? Still, I don't know how you don't notice a blog unless it magically popped up just as you were posting, but here you go.

AboveUp posted a round of challenges issues to the forum dwelling monstrosoes. The topic? Draw the cover of your favorite games!

Also, I didn't see my blog about Log Horizon get capped. It's an anime about an MMO where the global community of players are trapped in the game's world. Rather then fear death, they face purgatory with in-game immortality.

Now with that out of the way,

Pokebank!

POKEBANK!

POKEBANK!



I finally, finally got some of my most wanted Pokemon transferred over to Pokemon X. Finally, my suicide lead Aerodactyl can begin and my Whimsicott can start a cutesy reign of terror against set up sweepers with a priority boosted Encore. Finally, my previous shinies can roam freely in glorious 3D! Albino Rhyperior! Here we go!

If I can figure out where I wanna put a slow-ass, rock/ground wrecking ball.

Only time will tell how I can make teams to accommodate my new additions but its certainly revitalized my interest in playing Pokemon X again. And if you have anything negative to say about Pokebank, you're free to express your wrong opinions. We're on the Internet to share our opinions no matter how wrongthey are. Its a sign of strength and will power really to demonstrate how wrongyou are.

I also just switched over from Verizon to T-Mobile using their unique break up promotion where they take care of your early termination fees. It was a great deal as I save money overall on my monthly bill but upgrade to a newer phone and there's no contract service. Finally, I jumped from an iPhone 4 to an iPhone 5s and its nice to experience something a bit more cutting edge every year. I mean, 8GB to 16GB? That's a useful leap for all my downloads.

Well, if you want more caps, here's a taste of how I've been spending some of my idle time since discovering Inside Gaming on Youtube.



In between Inside Gaming, as you'll see from the caps filler pictures, I've been on a One Piece bender, rewatching some of the best fights on Youtube. The only anime worth its longevity currently. Dragonball Z ain't got nothing on this shit.


* - The Hoff examplifies some talented artists who helped him on his projects

* - Poupadopolis reveals unto us a gem of an obscure, Japan only tale called Segagaga, a true love letter to Sega fans before the fall of the Dreamcast and a biting satire of the game industry, at least back then

* - Spielerdad gets all Inception on us and documents his dreams based off of recent experiences and the fact that he plays games. He plans to pop in DOA Xtreme Volleyball soon


M - Jorgy waxes on his time spent on Link's Awakening, a key part of his past

M - Dwayne realizes the cycle of games and the enjoyment he derives out of some of our longest standing choices

A - Where the hell is the interest in a second Dreamcast supposed to be?








R - Starpoint Gemini 2 is only in alpha but it feels like a beta! Fishsticks is a delicious food and a lucky gamer!

N - SAGE stands for Sonic Amatuer Game Expo and Overbound is excited for the next big amateur Sonic game

R - For me, Gravity Rush is something I don't know much about since I don't own a Vita. Troy lets us non-Vitas know exactly what it is

V - Strummbummer compares GTAV to the lyrics of Kanye West








F - Starwolf has a thing and it might be a gender inspecific genitals

F - And he never came back to check on his blog!


~POKEBAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANK!

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.
