LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 04/25/13 + Shadeisms

Another week gone already, and it was a busy one. There was a lot of work to do, but fortunately it was all work I liked doing to a more or lesser extent. There were three essays to write or finish writing: one on the legal philosophical question of whether or not legal research is a science. My 3,500-word essay condensed into four? Who the hell cares? The second was an examination of a recent court case. It was a short essay, we had a 1,200-word limit, but it turns out that having so few words to tell your story in is actually much more difficult than just being able to elaborate on everything. Seeing as I tend to be slightly verbose (just slightly though), this was good practice. Finally, Ive been busy with the working of competition law on hospitals and other health care providers. Now that one is nowhere near done yet, but Ive made good progress this week. I want to have a good portion done by the end of next week so I can send it in to my supervisor for further comments. On top of all of that I even managed to come close to putting the final touches on a Cblog I want to post next week or so. I hope itll be good.

This is the first particularly busy week Ive had in a while, and only now did I really see Project Curaga pay off. I managed to pretty well keep a schedule of starting my work at 9 or 10AM and staying more or less on track until the end of the day. I never wouldve been able to do that two months ago. Its really quite surprising to me how much of an effect a simple thing like go to bed on time can have. For good behavior I rewarded myself every night with a good couple of hours of video games: mostly that one with all the monsters and the hunting. I forget what its called. Right now Im rocking a full set of Volvidon armor, which gives a large attack and evasion bonus, and which I managed to adjust so it also gives more stamina. Always handy.

Oh, and it looks sweet.



I like the demon look on the female version.
I am thinking of taking the time out to slay a bunch of Gigginox for the increased monster exhaustion and the decreased stamina loss their armor set gives, except that Gigginox are dicks. Like, such massive dicks.


Fun fact: its weak point is its head. Which side is the head?, you ask? Exactly. Dicks.

Either way, theres not much else for me to talk about unless you are massively interested in competition law in the health care sector or how big of a dick Gigginox is (such a dick), so lets get cappin!

* - Farewell Fap, we hardly knew ye. Fortunately, Zombie Orwell does everything in his power to keep the memory alive.

A - Kbirth is wondering about the announced Xbox reveal. It certainly doesn't seem like it'll have the punch the previous Xbox reveal had. No Elijah Wood, for one.

P - Faps or no faps, there will always be a Fapcast! Episode 12 with Strider, Phil and no Glowbear. Also Injustice. Lots of Injustice.

A - Strider examines the meta-game for Injusti-...goddammit Strider, can you and Injustice please get a room?!

A - Apparently the Virtual Boy had games on it, some of which may have even been decent...ish.

A - Here are some predictions for the Xbox reveal, all of which seem completely reasonable.



Don't you give me that look.

I - Christerious introduces himself to a game blog by saying he doesn't play much video games. It's okay though, it's only for time reason. Besides, he makes up for it with soundtracks and streams.

F - PC Friday Night Fights and Hot Dog Princess because Swishiee doesn't know what to talk about. LSP is where it's at man.

T - Oh shit, always-online is coming to WiiU now? I am so sad now.

A - Ray organized an event for a ton of artists to draw Zelda-related stuff. There's some really cool art in here.

A - It's certainly no Zelda, but Podtoid fan-art is cool too!

M - I've played so much of this game, but never noticed how good the music was! That doesn't happen to me very often. So thanks for sharing this Sonic Heroes song, amxwolf!

C - If you like Europa Universalis, killias has a promotion.

C - There's not much structure to this Bioshock blog.

May you always find water and shade

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.
