CBlogs o' 9/9/13 + MacMangasms [Breaking Bad Spoiler Alert]

   0


Gotta say, I haven't really had time to play much of anything this week. I've been buried hip deep in a pile of test prep books as I desperately cram for the GRE. Oh, how I love standardized tests that will have a major impact on the course of your life. But that's not what I want to talk about this week. This week I have to talk about Breaking-fucking-Bad.

[img=600x800]https://d2nh4f9cbhlobh.cloudfront.net/_uploads/galleries/3577/breaking-bad-image-2.jpg[/img]

I am simply obsessed with this show. I watched the whole series earlier this year and marathoned right through it on Netflix in preparation for the final episodes. This week's episode was just too much. My favourite moment was when Saul Goodman and Walt Jr. finally crossed paths. It was a funny reminder of how Walt Jr. has been completely unaware of what has been going on throughout his many breakfast eating scenes.



As for what I think will happen, I'm pretty sure this is the end of Hank, and unfortunately, Gomey. The more I think about it, the more I'm convinced that it's the inevitable end for Hank. For him, it's no longer about simply locking up a criminal, it's about catching his White (no pun intended) whale. Clearly he hasn't gathered evidence in a way any court will take and he also has Walt's confession tape to contend with, Hank was gonna catch him even if it kills him.



I'm pretty sure the next episode will begin with Hank and Gomez going down and Walt finds that Jessie has escaped. I really can't take the suspense. What do you guys think is gonna happen?

Let's talk about this in the comments.

* - A bit on the pitfalls of game criticism. I give you top sauce like I think of Vice as a good documentary show. Great, but I'd have liked to have seen you do more.

* - A great journey through the history of backwards compatibility.

A - Manny just about has me sold on the Vita TV.

S - Sammy let's us know what he'll be up to.

S - A meaty backlog. Fine work as always.









D - I'm really intrigued. Looking forward to the trailer.

T - Shuuda-y brings us some impressions of an interesting looking prison game.

R - A Fallout 3 reviews for you. Nothing against the review but I really hate when people call a review "The [insert name here] Review," eh Kotaku,,,

R - Another review by Sammy. This time he does Gone Home.





V - Marchey takes us through some of the cooler streams out there.

S - As I say every week now, please do a blog along with your let's play.

Also guys the Pirates finally have a winning season! I could care less what happens form here on out this season. It's been over 20 years. I'm good.

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.
