LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 11/13/10 and 11/14/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

After a long and saddening absence, the weekend Cblog recaps have officially made their return, with your very silvery dragon once again at the reigns. It's good to be back everyone. I'm sure you thought the recap team had forgotten all about the Cblogs, but you would be wrong. We have always been hear, watching and reading, but problems with the new version of Dtoid kind of put a kink in our recapping ability. Now that that's all over, we can get back to business as usual.

So since I haven't posted in a while, I have a lot to catch you all up on. I've been a very busy dragon. First of all, I've been extremely busy helping my fianc plan our upcoming wedding. If anyone is interested, you can check out our engagement photos here.

When I haven't been doing wedding stuff, I've been playing and reviewing games. Last month I had the unfortunate opportunity to review The Force Unleashed 2, which you can read here if you like. Suffice to say, I hated it and gave it a dreadfully low score. I've also been playing a lot of Dragon Age: Origins, and I can happily say that after 80 awesome hours, I finally beat the game this afternoon. Now I'm totally ready for the sequel when it comes out next March.

Well I hope the rest of you have been doing well. Let's get on with the weekend recaps shall we.

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.
