LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 6/24/18 & 7/1/18 & 7/8/18 + Friday the 13th

   0

Friday the 13th is soon upon us, and to celebrate I recently picked up Friday the 13th on PS4. It's not a perfect game, and many, many parts of it are janky as fuck, but I'll be damned if it isn't a fun little multiplayer romp. Playing as the counselors has a good sense of tension and dread, and playing as Jason is lots of fun as you're able to teleport around and do dumb supernatural serial killer shit all in the name of slaying horny teens.

That said, I'm pretty terrible at it. I'm usually the first counselor killed, and can't seem to be able to kill anyone as Jason. It's partly due to how bad I am at multiplayer games these days, and partly due to how little time I can devote to gitting gud enough to actually be effective. So for now, the game is best played with friends where I can talk shit and get killed repeatedly without having to upset randos online.

If you have the game, hit me up! A few other users and I are planning to get some more regular games going, so the more the merrier. You know how to find me.

* - Dango puts together a nice little list of video game locations he'd actually like to visit. Honestly, you could put basically any Mario level in there and I'd probably be down. Even the dungeon levels! I hope I never have to visit Camp Crystal Lake, though...

S - Flegma goes on another SP Solace journey with Yono and the Celestial Elephants. The game looks cute as heck, but it looks the gameplay is a bit lacking. Also, there are probably no environmental kills in this game, which is kind of harshing my mellow.

M - Shoggoth2588 slays more games every month than Jason slays promiscuous campers. He played like 15 games in June, which is pretty insane to me. I think I played like four. And those were for reviews. Where does he get the time?!

S - Jason eventually gets us all, as Toys R Us can confirm. Pacario shares some photos from the last couple of days of his local TRU's existence, waxing nostalgic on the time when he didn't want to grow up, on account of being a Toys R Us kid.

E - Band of Bloggers is back, baby! In this month's prompt, LaTerry asks users to share their gaming thoughts on robots. You know, in Jason X Mr. Vorhees became Cyber Jason. I think that counts.

R - Dwavenhobble puts together a nice little memorandum on TotalBiscuit and how his work impacted Dwaven's own.

T - Kesith feels like all he's played this year is Yakuza, and you know what? He's fine with that. I haven't played any of the Yakuza games yet, myself, but I hear they're pretty good. Are there any hockey minigames?

L - I don't really like ice cream, so I can't speak to the veracity of these claims. I do enjoy a nice ice cream sandwich from time to time, though. Hey, what's Jason's favorite ice cream flavor?

See you at Camp Crystal Lake!

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.
