Cblog Recaps of 5/04/18, 5/11/18, 5/18/18+Movin on, from the land of the corn

Its weird. You build up a life in a place, you learn the best roads and the best places to eat, where to get drinks and where to get lattes. You map out a city in your mind as you live in it and then one day you decide to leave and you know deep down you're never coming back. This is where I find myself now, as I will be moving out of the Iowa place and into a different, far prettier midwest state for a new job. Instead of vaccines I'll be growing up oodles of bacteria to make probiotics, destined for a new town that is a lot bigger than the one I leave behind. I can't say I'm much bothered by anything aside from the inconvinience of moving and learning a new job-while I like a fair few of my coworkers it was never a place that I found I really connected with anyone at, and the job was doing nothing to feed my brain or ambitions aside from getting experience to get into better things. Still its hard to leave a place you don't hate in some ways. However I do think I'll be moving onto bigger and brighter things, and hopefully as of next year the sweet tentacles of academia will envelop me once more. After two years I'm ready to move on and I'm ready to get moving towards something better. 

Now onto recaps, with 100% irrelevant images! 

A - Dwavenhobble writes a blog about why Singleplayer isn't dead. Presumably this is something of a response to the whole "Single Player games are dead" thing that honestly is a topic that grows somewhat tiresome to me to see come up over and over again as if its a new revelation. Every couple of years people muse on whether or not SP is dying, and every time its easy to point at several games that make it obvious its not.

T - Local Warframe-Pusher Neoturbo writes up a blog about Warframes newest update and what it adds, so go check that out if you are at all curious about what the deal there is.

R - JcDent writes up some thoughts on that there PoE: II. Sounds like a good time, I might check it out at some point for I do like CRPGs, and Obsidians writing even if they made the worse of the two Fallout games of the pre Fallout 4 era. Fight me.

R - VVerner Herrzawgz writes up a blog about Azure Strike Gunvolt and how they eventually grew bored with it, leading into a discussion about RPG stuff. Some food for thought, if you're interested in such things.

C - This blogs mostly just somewhat confusing and it doesn't really say much aside from a weird pitch for a game and a link to a russian blog.

S - U MAD BRO

May your fission be binary and your growth forever exponential.

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.
