LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 6/10/18 & 6/17/18 + Your Mom Won E3 lol

I never bought into the whole, "Who won E3?" thing. Partly because it's usually just rampant fanboyism that determines the winner, and partly because it's just so damned subjective. I don't consider 45 minutes of playing Smash Bros. "winning" anything, but lots of folks were really into Nintendo's presentation. Inversely, I really liked Sony's different approach to the conference, even if the execution was extremely flawed. Different strokes and all of that.

That said, I think there are definitely losers at E3. A recent Qpost reminded me of the splendor that once was Booth Babes. Good old Booth Babes. For those who don't remember, Booth Babes were essentially models that companies would hire to stand around and look hot while nerds nervously pawed at them. They were shut down years ago for several reasons, chief of which being they were kind of a bad look on the industry. Was the use of Booth Babes actually sexist? Probably not for me to determine. Do I miss seeing attractive women dressed up like sexy Crash Bandicoot?

I'll let you be the judge of that.

* - J Jason Rodriguez contributes to this month's Band of Bloggers prompt with a nice little tribute to his dad, the ever-present NPC in his life. It's a good read that sticks with the theme it set out for. Read it!

S - I'm gonna be honest with you here, I have no clue what this blog is about. I read it and everything, but we have so little time on this planet that I can't be bothered by the constant outrage of the internet. Dwavenhobble talks about something Jim Sterling said, and I guess people are mad? I don't know. If you like spending your breath on this sort of thing, then I suppose you can hop right in.

S - MightyMagikarp is tackling the massive roster of the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate by giving a rundown of each of the 70-ish characters in the game. This list sees fighters 13-26. Nothing can convince me that Mario actually has a legitimate doctorate degree.

E - I have a pretty amazing streak of making it in to Comments of the Week by simply recycling that excellent Fartnite joke of mine. And I'm never, ever going to stop.

E - Bethesda memed itself. I think that's against the rules, right? Anyway, CotW does yet another fantastic job compiling all the dumb shit we say...this time taken directly from the Bethesda E3 stream!

D - I don't know if this counts as spam or not, but I'm willing to give Rahul Martin the chance to tell us about his work in an informative, bloggy kind of way. If he starts to spam us, though, I'm afraid we'll have to let him go. Choose wisely, Rahul!

T - Monkey830 recaps the Bethesda E3 presentation. I don't know about you, but I'm fucking hype as hell to blast some Nazis in 1980s Paris with twin ass-kickers in the new Wolfenstein game!

T - Flegma walks us through his experience with GRIDD: Retroenhanced Edition for Switch. I'd never heard of the game, but the photos in the blog are quite impressive. What can I say? I'm a sucker for 80s neon.

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.
