LONG BLOG

C-Blog Recaps for 6/1/13 + 6/2/13 + Gunpointgasms

   0



I'm going to speak my mind on something and it may hurt some of y'alls feels. Sorry. I am disappointed though. For the past couple months it seems the c-blogs are going down the shitter. Sure we still have good entries (amazing in some cases), but they are being buried under bullshit. A lot of what I'm seeing is forum posts, not c-blogs. There is no excuse for this people. There are guides to help you. There are examples to help you. Community members are telling you this is not cool, yet some of you aren't listening. Our blogs are not like other places. This is a shared space and it's very special to me and a lot of other folks. Make an introduction post, by all means blog, but make sure it's worthy of a blog. Make sure you're not knocking someone off the front roll for a bullshit joke/3 sentence crap blog. Seriously sit back and think about what you're posting. Could it be fleshed out more? Is the content interesting? Is it just some dumb fucking meme that could be posted elsewhere? In short: STEP YOUR GAME UP. Oh and don't fucking copypasta. I will go out of my way to get you banned. Moving on....



Gunpoint is amazing. Did you see the review? Go buy it. NOW! I command thee! Alright, it's Monday and that's my "haven't slept since Saturday".... er..... day, so let's cap.

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.
