Cblogs of 4/25/2018 - Death, Taxes and Game 7 Inevitabilities

   0

Kids, don’t ever care about sports. Don’t even think about it. All that will happen is you’ll get up a goal heading into the final frame in an elimination game, only to have every possibility of happiness ripped away from your soul. It is the most painful of deaths. Hope is for the foolish. Nothing matters. You deserve every second of this misery.

Face your fears, they said. Slay the dragon! Go out and get redemption against the foe that has knocked you down time after time. Today is the day you overcome them! Today is the day you triumph!

Lies!

Lies! Lies! Lies! Lies! LIES!

Why even bother when all anything brings me is anger and sadness? Why am I the way that I am!? Just watching naively as my spirit is lifted, knowing full well the inevitability that is coming, and getting my heart piledrived into this hellscape of an existence. This is the absolute worst!

*looks over at Capitals fans, internally screaming, as they prepare for round 2 vs the Penguins*

…….then again, maybe being a Leafs fan ain’t so bad. Only 5 more months until hockey training camp opens! Can’t wait! #BudsAllDay

In much less melancholic news, GREAT JOB on the Wednesday blogs everyone! Reading them really pulled me out of my funk. There was a good handful of them covering a wide range of topics. More of this! Keep it up!

* - RocketKnight shares a touching moment from Earthbound that resonates with him, calling back a warm memory of his family. Give this lovely blog a read!

* - Soon-to-be-daddy SrChurros doesn’t really care for dragons. That doesn’t stop him from creating a species of murderous, space-faring dragons in Spore for this month’s Band of Bloggers entry. What a terrifying thought.

A - Dwavenhobble discusses issues with art criticism in games and what he feels can be done better.

A - Building off the latest entries of God of War and Resident Evil, Monkey830 brings forward other franchises he would like to see reimagined. Go share games you’d like to see given the revamp treatment.

Hockey hugs are a great way to cheer up! They're also a great way to take out a conference rival the second the tournament is over.

Enjoy the good moments while you can. Appreciate them.

R - Our resident Star Fox expert, Zalno, looks back at the series’ entries on the Wii U, Zero and Guard. Sounds like they were out of control! I mean in the sense that the controls were bad.

T - Sapato64 discusses Project Gorgon, a game inspired by classic MMORPGs of yesteryears. Keep an eye out for future blogs sharing their experience with the game and the people they interact within PG’s world.

F - It’s a battle for the ages as Luckrequired goes blow-for-blow with Greenhornet214 over the 2003 & 2008 Hulk films. Pick a side and share your thoughts with them.

Celica is wrong. If you're prepared, you can overcome your biggest obstacle on the biggest stage. Believe in your self and believe in your teammates.

If your friend plans on leaving during free agency, beg them to take you with them.

 

That's it from me for this week. You're probably stuck with me for a few more recaps until Dere comes back. Once again, well done on the blogs everyone.

Fap the caps!

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.
