LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2/23/18&3/2/18&3/9/18+Back from the hydrothermal vents

Yeah its been a bit hasn't it? Fridays have been slow lately on blogs and last weekend was busier than I anticipated so you're getting a good old fashioned three cap. So then, whats been going on with me? Well I finally got my podcast off the ground and it continues to rumble along despite some techincal issues and I've managed to hopefully get into a routine of putting out a blog/podcast every week to keep things moving in the blog arena. Its been rewarding for me so far, and I plan on trying to keep it going as long as is feasible. In real life stuff I also managed to get a raise and a bonus, and I may get a switch in the near future financials permitting. 

I've also been enraptured with MHW-as the games gone on more and more of its complexity has unraveled for me and I find myself getting higher and higher rank weapons, fighting new monsters and getting new items with which to fight them monsters. I know I've been gushing about this for a while, but honestly the games got its hooks in deep and I'm still digging into the story to try to get to the end while hunting with the peeps on dtoid and trying to get limo into it. Its been a fun ride and I don't see myself getting off of it entirely soon. And finally I beat Hellblade and despite some issues I overall enjoyed the game and its one I think I may play again at some point to try to get a better grip on the different stuff its trying to bring across. 

Oh and I've been listening to some Witcher 3 music which has made me think about The Witcher 3 a fair bit again. Hence the images and the music I posted. 

Onto recaps! 

* - dephoenix gives us an interesting look at their personal experience with the roller coaster ride that is crowdfuding. Its a pretty hefty list and makes me muse on the projects I've backed and how those turned out. Its a good indepth look, give it a read if so inclined.

C - Strider, fellow Monster Hunter world addict and resident monster hunter expert in addition to the several others because of course, presents a blog asking you what your favorite monsters are. For myself, Odogaron is definitely up there. I have a set of almost entirely his gear and I looove it.

T - Shoggoth continues their gaming journal by looking at februarys games and there are quite a few of them indeed. Makes me look at the two games, three games I've been mainlining and pondering if I should go play something else for a bit. Naaaah.

T - Kerrik brings us a blog that serves as a buyers guide for NIhon Falcom games available in the west. Seems a decent list if such things tend to catch your eye and I'd recommend taking a look if their stable seems up your alley.

T - This blogs not perfect but I like it and it has some interesting things to say about Dark Souls which always is a hoot for me given my love of that particular gem. I find it interesting to muse on how depressing and uplifting the game can be in various turns and the nature of the heroes of its world. Not a bad look at all. If I had one complaint I'd like to lodge, maybe stop bringing up SOTC and let this be its own thing-I have no feelings towards that game but the unneeded swipes take away from the blog as a whole.

C - As someone with no real investment in Star wars as a thing where its at I'd be lying if I said this blog was overly to my tastes, but if you do like Star Wars maybe it'll do more for you. As is its a pretty standard recap of an episode and event that could perhaps better serve as a meatier look at the show. Also, its a bit gauche to fap your own blogs

May your fission be binary and your growth forever exponential.

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.
