LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 03/26/14 + NIHILISMS

   0



Hello, Destructoid community bloggers. It's been a while yet.

Some of you may know me. Some of you may not. I am Nihil, a murder police in The Basement. I used to be a frequent blogger myself, on these here pages. There's a few excuses as to why I don't blog as much anymore. Foremost is because video games are horrible and should be banned and you all should be ashamed of yourselves. Secondly, it's none of your business. And last, your Mother.

BUT! I still care about reading your musings, so much so that I made a thread dedicated to showing Those Who Dwell Below what they're missing up here. A sorta cool-blogs-I-read-lately deal - not unlike these here recaps. And I have concluded, with my natural detective skills, that this made me a shoe-in as a reservist for the cblogs.

If you told me months and years and days ago that I would be a reserve recapper in 2014, I would've told you to shut up and go kill yourself. But now, in these dire times, it seems my services to the cblog community are required yet again.




* - Third Round of your MSpaints is go. You will literally get a cookie for each one you guess right.

* - Arsenic13 thinks about the children and the future of their online gaming environments.

* - Everyday Legend is a big fan of irony and corrupt politicians getting fucked in the ass. It just so happens I am as well.









I - HLBC is back, and explains why he hasn't made a blog in a while. His reasons are better than mine.


N - ktfX gives us the low-down on why Facebook buying out Oculus is pissing people off.

R - Old McDonald had a farm. And on that farm, he reviewed Silent Hill Shattered Memories, The Stanley Parable, and SteamWorld Dig. They're pretty okay.

R - Star Ocean is underrated, ROM'd, and reviewed. It's not piracy if they don't make 'em like they used to...

T - PopetheRev likes the Sonic and Outrun series, because they make him feel funny "down there".



A - A comic book review and recommendations by the elusive Hammershark.







Thus concludes our broadcast Recaps. Hope you enjoyed 'em. Thanks to Strider and Smurfee for the opportunity, and I'll see y'all 'round the bend!

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.
