LONG BLOG

Cblog Recaps of 6/12 and Mayor Striderisms

   0




Next week is my last grad night. Of course these Striderisms are coming after another load of pissy teenagers. What's different about the lateness is that I also went to Culver City Best Buy to see the so-called Nintendo Experience.

I went in knowing I was only interested in the free stuff and went away... with a fist full of free stuff. Yup, not all that impressed with the Nintendo Experience. In addition to the game we saw announced that morning being available (being all the familiar faces) but there was only one, HD kiosk. One. In the whole Best Buy which was advertised as having the E3 experience all over the internet. The line stretched so far back, traffic was disrupted. I was smart enough to arrive an hour early and even then it was an hour wait for my turn. I didn't care what I played though as the employees took names and game preferences. Hell, I picked Donkey Kong Country Jungle Freeze because I knew it would jump me forward in the line. I just wanted swag. Hell, let me pull out my TF2 response: I got a hat!



They were definitely games, yup. And enjoyable. Yes, video games are to be enjoyable. Checked that tick mark. This is good news indeed. I guess the only other thing to note is the Nintendo employees who were walking around and how they're fucking ranked my Pikmin badges holy crap someone help me I cannot even deal with this.


Level one clearance

Of course, anyone who knows me knows I've been balls deep in Animal Crossing. I even got an old neighbor in my town of Harbor, Hopper! It's been slow going but that's Animal Crossing for you. It draws you in until before you realize it, you've developed a daily routine: digging fossils, checking daily items, hunting for wildlife, talking to citizens, rinse and repeat. Only a lot of important features are actually locked for days until you reach them as mayor. Streetpass? You need a house first jackass, and that's at least two days of wait. Use the Dream Suite to visit people's towns anonymously on the Internet? Several days bro, cause you need to build it as a public works project. The island? Wait for Tortimor to give you the ok as long as you've received your development permit.

And you know what? I can't stop playing.

I've developed my own headcanon, which is 50% of the reason why I can't stop playing. Sure, Lolly the cat is the peppy type of neighbor. You can only have so many combinations of animal neighbors and personality types. But Lolly loves to go to Main Street and the museum. She loves browsing the unfortunately bare exhibits. Or Jeremaiah, the sleepy frog? He looks sleepy but every time we talk, he talks business. Bells for items, requests for bells, items for items. Jeremaiah is a saavy consumer and he knows I'm the guy who can get him what he wants. And Hopper once asked me to deliver a present to Lolly. You think I won't notice, you sly dog you?

Also, I had no idea the Nintendo Direct was so spotty. I was too busy fangasming over Smash and Mega Man. Plus these Villager memes are downright hilarious.

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.
