LONG BLOG

Cblog Recaps of 4/23/14 and Striderisms!

   0



The Spring sale on Xbox 360 passed and while it doesn't hold a candle to Steam, I still came away with some games at severely reduced prices and a larger backlog then ever and more important, some fun games to play in my free time. For example, Batman Arkham City.

This game is still mind blowingly fun to me due to the arcadey challenge between combat rooms and predator games. Stringing together the perfect, pristine freeflow combat, countering every hit, using every trick in the book, and messing up a small populations' use of their arm will never get old to me. And now with a bunch of content to explore that I haven't yet, there's still more to be had. I mean, I also got Harley Quinn's Revenge for $3 and that gave me a taste of Robin. Now I've got an itch to buy the Nightwing and Robin challenge packs to experience their unique brand of combat thrashing. While Batman uses his claw to lariat fools, Robin uses his to straight up Bionic Commando zip-kick them into oblivion. Nightwing has less use compared to Robin since he has a challenge pack and a part in HQ's Revenge, but he still has a lot of utilitarian difference in combat with his wing dings and electric kali sticks.

Jumping into AC also reminded me I left a ton of Catwoman challenges unperfected, which I also reminded myself are unperfected because she seems so much weaker compared to the Bat family, mostly due to not rodeoing titan henchmen for efficient room clearing.

Speaking on unperfected challenges, I of course cleared nearly every mission in the main campaign but obviously left the Riddler's case file half complete because fuck, who has time for uber-collectible missions man? But I'm considering on closing the case with Riddler once and for all with enough time.AC is now on my hard drive rather then a disk, so who knows?



I also got BL2 at a 75% off and while it's super late to the multiplayer party, I also managed to get a season pass at 60% off too, meaning I got much more than just one DLC add-on for essentially free. It was too much of a deal to just pass up and I also got Krieg while I was at it. Zer0 is all about finesse in his melee. I should give Krieg a spin for pure, adrenaline junkie melee classes, right?

But mostly I want to build up my Commando and Mechromancer classes up since I left them somewhat hanging. Though my Commando cleared the main campaign, he's only at level 35, really shy of his goal of throwing out two missile equipped Sabre turrets spitting out tons of lead with shield enclosures. And I have a ton of opportunities to get him leveled up now that I have the entire season 1 DLC under my belt.

That is if I can ever pull myself away from Catwoman's combat challenge rooms.

Also, follow the Dtoid Cards tumblr because just because. I want to get my ass in gear to make a Dtoid card but I'm so lazy and mostly about the Cblogs and never have the time to keep up with the Forums unless it's on my terms like Game Threads good luck on keeping up with The Bar or All About Dtoid sub forums.


* - Liked the Moonlight saber from Armored Core? These and more cross-pollination references abound in Dark Souls!











T - Pretend you don't know anything about GTAV and read Grungy describe the weapon mechanics

R - Carmino is the only true Sunset Rider, 10/10

R - Revenile decided to ignore class and jot down his thoughts on Elder Scrolls Online










No fail, so get to failing dammit.

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.
