CBlog Recaps of 04/17/2018 - Dragon Rising

LaTerry, can a Recap/-ism satisfy a Band of Bloggers entry? If so, "Talk about dragons, Larx. You know you want to. ♪" You got it, mister. Time to discuss...DRAGONS. I mean, I grew up as a tyke watching a few dragons on the TV, for ...

 
 
 
 

Cblogs of 4/15/14 + On being a gamer

Why are we afraid to be ourselves? Our truest, deepest selves, unfettered by the chains of society and expectations? I ask primarily because I'm a gamer. Obviously. I'm here at this gaming site, writing about games. I'm a staff member...

 
 
 

Cblogs of 4/6/14&4/13/18+History and science

Cblog Recaps of April 1, 2018 + I'm a Pervert

It's official - I'm a pervert. Not that you didn't know that, already, or anything. But still. I realized recently that it was cemented. What brought me to that realization? Two weeks ago, I bought School Girl Zombie Hunter. And I pla...

 
 
 

Cblogs of 3/21/18 and 3/28/18 + Easter Eggs

I'm just throwing this out there and I know this probably won't be popular with most people, but I don't like Easter eggs.  I really don't like them much at all.  I'm talking real Easter eggs and also video game Easter eggs....

 
 
 
 
 

Cblogs of 3/16/18, 3/23/18+Switch it up

The Nintendo Switch has been an interesting system to watch to say the very least. Its initial trailer got people interested and gathered around the internet water coolers, discussing what this new system was and the implications of i...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Cblogs of 3/7/2018 - Tagging in & EGLX

Dere is unable to recap today so the coach is making the call and putting your boy CelicaCrazed in from off the bench. Get up, let’s go! Time to hustle! This being my first recap it would probably be a good idea for me to do a l...

Cblogs of 2/21/18 + Taming my Backlog

Just as recently as last year, I saw most everyone posting on here about trying to wittle down their backlog.  I honestly had very little if any experience with that.  I was still gaming on the Xbox One at the time and didn'...

 
 
 

CBlog Recaps of 02/20/2018 - Step Forward

Sorry, I had an -ism topic all prepped for this week, but then I reconsidered after ascertaining it to arrive too quickly for its intended discussion. This leaves me without a relatable (to me) subject to cover at length. Fortuitously...

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.
