LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 02/07/14 and bbainisms

   0


Not much to talk about this week. I've still been playing both Skies of Arcadia and Risk of Rain. Skies is turning out to be a looooong game (not a bad thing, necessarily). I'm making progress, but very slowly. As for Risk of Rain, I've beaten it several times and unlocked every character, but there's still one achievement that I haven't gotten because I'm terrible with the Sniper. Not that you really have to use the Sniper to get the 5,000 damage achievement, but it seems to be the easiest way. For some reason, I just hate seeing that I only have one achievement left to get in a game... I'm so close!

Also, about the recaps this week: I feel a little bad about the fail section. I really like the idea behind Musicians Wanted, and I'm sure it will lead to some very beautiful things, but it definitely seems to inspire lazy blog writing. For anyone reading this that plans on submitting something for Musicians Wanted: please, PLEASE add a bit of text to your blog to go along with your music. Tell us about yourself! Tell us about the piece you created! What influenced your decision? Why did you choose a particular game/musical style? I guess it's not required to write anything for the topic, but it definitely makes your blog more approachable and interesting, and it will surely get more people to listen to your music.

Anyway, that's all I've got for you today. Keep writing blogs and making sweet music!

A - Ray has some ideas for Nintendo to make a comeback, although I strongly disagree with a few of his suggestions.

A - sonic429 is all about the Wii U!

A - FoolproofAdam lists a few enemies that he thoroughly enjoys fighting. Personally, I find enemies that explode when you kill them to be quite satisfying!

A - Another blog offering advice for Nintendo to save itself, this time using the tactics of a pimp.



F - Friday Night Fights on Playstation + Time traveling!



V - Oculin plays Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers.

$ - February 7th UK releases and bargains!



F - SpielerDad wonders why Superman suddenly becomes so clumsy while disguised as Clark Kent.



R - Some more DeviantArt cosplay from Reinhold Hoffmann. Godot and Kuja are pretty neat!

L - TheKodu created a blog specifically to make puns about InFamous and condoms, and I applaud his efforts!



F - Gonna have to fail this one. Give us a little more to go off of. For example: What made you decide to remix this song?

F - This one is literally just a link... Tell us about yourself and your project!

F - This person at least gave us a bit of info, however... I can't figure out what the song has to do with gaming at all. I suspect they're just promoting their band with a random song?

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.
