The Cblog Fapcast Episode 5 - The sorry game

   0




As the podcast as a whole is on its way up, each individual episode is on its way down! I finished the RSS feed and sent it away to iTunes for approval. In a few more days perhaps, you can find our podcast on the iTunes store for podcasts! Of course, if you want to simply subscribe to our RSS without using iTunes, you can always use this. Oh, and I might as well use these posts to actually, you know, act like show notes.

We has a site!

Get in on it here!

In this episode...

Phil has been replaced by a robot, Strider is having girlfriend trouble, and Wrench is playing Mech Warrior! Also, Halo 4, Black Ops 2, and gem warfare! The community segment also has intro blogs, Kojima talk, and even a brand new community question!

This week's community question, or c-question if you will, is what games have you loved despite glaring flaws? Go ahead and answer the question via our twitter or even on our goddamn Facebook page! And also send other questions, suggestions, and other social interactions!

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.
