LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2/17/09 + Pendeltonisms

   0


So, last week, I talked about my friend making a badass Bowser glass piece. That same friend has asked me into the studio tonight to help him out with his next project: the 3 main characters of AAAAH! Real Monsters. Holy shit am I excited! Also, this week, our school has had an old-world (read: Italian born-and-raised) glass "maestro" come in and make glass while people observes. The guy's name is Elio Quarisa, and he makes some of the most beautiful pieces I've ever seen. Check this out:

Yeah, he's been in the shop all week, making stuff like this, and, for some reason, humming "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" all the time. I fucking love this dude.

Speaking of old guys, today's blog contains some old dude's birthday, on top of other things, like the first ever Fail and Top blog by the same user in the same day, and lost of The Lost and The Damned talk.

Cblog Recaps: Ba da bum ba ba, I'm loving it!



*-OH FUCK YES! Over 100 of us fine folks are in the Google Group for PAX 09. WERE GONNA TAKE OVER SEATTLE!!!

*Ummwow, hell of a way to come out the gate: Welcome Mighty Pinto as he talks about R-type: Dimensions

*-Pretty fantastic round-up of The Lost and The Damned, considering his fail earlier in the day.

*-When is Dtoid just gonna get its own art gallery: Vice shows off some gorgeous Castlevania X and Cave Story art.



A-Crunshii examines the need for game companies to look into dropping game prices back down, what with the Economy in such bad shape.

A-BFeld13 gives us his thoughts on GTA DLC through a childrens storybook-style delivery.

P-FAILCAST recorded tonight. And, apparently, its magical and unexplainable.


FUCK YES! Though my guitar broke (=[), I was happy I was finally able to play this on Rock Band today:




S-Wow, Kyvon08 found the only instance of a Gamestop employee who isnt an inconsiderate moron.

S-Wow, Brilliam IS awesome! Also, fucking rocking dog, Zen!

I-Welcome professional weeaboo to the cblogs, then run away in terror.

B-Some old guy (y0j1mb0) talks about how some other old guy (SantanaClause89) got older today. Those ancient fuckers.



N-Since I know not the loving touch of PC gaming, this means little to me, but probably excites some of you: the Source mod Black Mesa is gonna be out by the end of the year.

V-Mega64 spoofing Elite Beat Agents. Like the costumes and dancing, but the music makes me want to shove a flaming screwdriver in my ear.

R-A pretty cool text-and-video review of the new SF4 Fightpad.

R-COD4 review, with some Dtoiders showing their teeth in the comments. Good read, though.

T-Aparently Demios likes GTA: TLaTD. How do I know? Oh, probably the line THIS IS HOW THE DLC CONCEPT WORKS BITCHES!

T-A look at Daemon Bride, which, while gorgeous, is apparently for pussies.

D-This is pretty neat: GamingGoddess shows off some sprites she made for a game shes working on.



A-Art of Isarar, Maximilian, and Selvaria in the new Valkyria anime. Also, I find out what the fuck Char Aznable means.

A-Aertyr is on the path to failing maths whilst he draws SF4 and Dtoid doodles.



?-Neat little find: F.E.A.R. 2 has some Office Space Easter eggs.

?-I dont care what he says: Gibbo is the father of that crazy British whore who slept with a 12-year-old.

?-Mix this with Gentleman Dinosaur, and youve got the makings of the greatest, classiest, Anti-Semitiest game ever.



F-...are you serious, dude? Do your own work.

F-I dont understand why you didnt direct this to the forums

F-What, pray tell, was the point of this shortblog?

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.
