LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 09/26/12 and Borderlandsisms!

   0




You turn a corner into a dark alley where you're then confronted by a giant man that's at least 8 feet tall, carrying a backpack as tall as you, and is wearing a bucket that's covering his entire head. Do you:

A) Kick him in the nuts
B) Fuck that shit and run like hell
C) Ask him if he's seen any sailors around
D) I'll take TheRapist for $500 Trebek

The answer: run into a cave full of SpiderAnts and murderous bandits and hope for the best. Well, that's what I did anyways.

Seriously now, Borderlands 2 has me by the eff'in balls. Work is a pain in the ass, I'm having trouble making time to talk to my girlfriend, and I haven't written anything for days except for that last blog about Borderlands 2 and I only managed that because it's about Borderlands 2.

More than the loot, I just want to see my character grow and become more badass. But it happens in such slow increment that I simply come back hoping I'll reach level 50 sooner. Who doesn't want the ability to drop two turrets armed with rocket launchers and bubble shields? But in the game's pace, I'm lucky to upgrade my turret's cooldown rate by 5% each rank. Everything happens so incrementally, it's the looting that keeps me from going insane.

So you got a gun that shoots bullets? How about a sniper rifle that has a base damage of 169 and a critical multiplier of goddamn 180%. I've found a sniper rifle with a higher base damage of 230 and a crit multiplier of 120% but my older rifle still outdamages it. The new one can do 200 normally and crits can do 600 plus electric damage, and that's cool.

My older gun does 150 normally but crits for 1,250 damage.

What is math and how does it work?

I've found rocket launchers that do 300x3 damage. Yes, it fires three rockets at once for 300 damage each. Is that crazy? NO. I've found a rocket launcher that does 5160 damage and has 4 shots a magazine. That's 5k damage against a number of enemies who happen to be near each other. I killed a thresher the size of a small apartment complex in just 3 rockets.

I found a shotgun with pink rarity that was manufactered by Bandits. It's called Critikal hit oberkill! and it has a scope for some reason. It does 138x17. Yes, multiplied by 17 buckshot. Plus it does 50% critical damage. Plus it has 22 shots in the chamber. Plus it's in the hands of an Assassin who's Deception ability can potentially multiply first strike gun damage by 200% and critical hit damage by 250%.


Crazy, crazy, crazy!

Jesus, Borderlands 2 is goddamn math porn.

And before I forget, Wrench mentioned in his caps last night that he just hit his anniversary capping. We have been capping together at about the same time. So does that mean it's my anniversary too? I don't remember. If someone remembers, please feel free to tell me, if I happen to be around anyways. Which I doubt because I'll probably still be playing Borderlands 2.

Hit me up on Xbox peeps. Those Legendaries aren't going to loot themselves you know!

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.
