LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 07/31/14 + Dawn of the Final Week

   0




Yep, one week from now I'll leave good ol' Europe behind to find out what life is like across the pond. Everything is ready to go; I've got my passport, visa, plane ticket, hotel reservation for the first few days, a bunch of cash dollars (I've actually never held a dollar before) and everything else you could think of.

I can't actually bring my WiiU with me, so during my 5-month stay in your glorious capital I'll be missing out on Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2 and Smash Bros. WiiU, at least until I come home in January. That's obviously quite a blow, but at least I'm bringing my 3DS along so I can still get some sweet gaming done. I just bought Bravely Default to keep myself occupied on the plane, and since I'm pretty sure the 3DS eShop will still be accessible as long as I can get wifi there's lots of games to choose from should I ever run out of things to do. Although to be honest I don't think that'll happen even in 5 months.

Are you ready?
Because I'm ready.

* - While nobody actually hates Catherine, naveenwf was looking for an excuse to write about his favorite game of all time. Any excuse is a good excuse to talk about Catherine!

* - RedHeadPeak wishes he could take his class on a school trip to Neo-Paris, the city from that oft-forgotten game Remember Me.

* - Sounds like Hamza has plans for Dtoid going forward. If that open call goes out I might give it a shot...after I've plugged LOADS of other 'toiders first.

A - I have no better caption for this blog than a quote from the blog itself: "For all my weird behaviour, obscure quotes, library of games, numerous gaming consoles, excessively big computers and meaningless information, she still loves me."

A - I DO like top 10s, and I like chiptunes. Thanks for this blog, I got some great listening material.

P - DustinThomas is jumping back into his Podcast, which features Mario, Battleblocks, Batman and more!

S - Nintendette shares a weird little easter egg in the Sims series.

A - Oscarno continues his journey of making me want to play games based on their music alone. Like Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance!





F - Xbox FNF + It's getting hot in here! (so take off all your clothes)









L - Jesse Baule describes his experience of going to the loo only to find out you can't actually read Game Manuals anymore.

F - I don't know what's going on with Deus Ex, why don't you actually tell us?






- ShadeOfLight
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.
