LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 6/13 & 6/20/2018

Greenhornet214 is in the house, stepping in for our beloved Dere. I'll be recapping blogs from the past 2 Wednesdays.

I can't stop playing Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition on Switch. It's addictive. The gameplay is simple and straightforward, but not bland. I love the constant feeling of progression. You are always growing your characters. No effort you make is wasted, unless you fail a mission (which is rare on the lower difficulty levels).

The Adventure map is complicated. I'm making really great progress on the first map. I am finally grasping how searching the grids works. I still don't understand everything. It's complicated and the game doesn't explain it very well at all. But it's a really fun system on the whole. Provides a great variety of gameplay. If the game only had the main campaign, it would get very old, very fast.

I have also purchased and attempted to play the Octo Expansion for Splatoon 2 but it is crazy difficult. Really cool idea, but I am just not up to the task at hand.

* - Osc takes us along with him on his continuing journey through learning game development. He even includes a link to a text adventure he crafted.

S - Dwavenhobble continues their takedown series of gaming industry practices with another controversial issue. This entry discusses Valve's curation policy.

T - darrenhupke has a lofty goal. He attempts an objective review of E3. He is a wee bit harsher than I was, but hey, maybe I'm a fanboi.

T - Meteor Strike Gamez gives us his thoughts and theories regarding Devil May Cry 5. As someone that has never played any of the games, this was way over my head. But I'm sure fans of the series will find plenty here to sink their teeth into.

T - The Baked Potato begins what seems to be a series explaining their nitpicks with Fallout. This entry is brief and straightforward. I'll be interested to hear if Potato ever posts their thoughts on Fallout 76.

N - Virtua Kazema recaps news and information pertaining to fighting games at E3. I'm not a fighting game person, but it's a good time to be a fan of the genre it seems. I am very excited for Smash though, of course.

F - F-I'm not sure what to make of this blog by WarriorPoet. It is literally just two links to youtube videos and nothing else.

Peace out homies!

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.
