LONG BLOG

C-Blogs of 16/09/09 +Cadtalfrisms

Hey everyone. I haven’t been around much to fill in lately, but here are some c-blog recaps that are actually rather punctual for a change.

I have been a bit busy as of late: moving into a new house, being back at college and getting a shiny new PS3 have consumed a lot of my time. I recently went to a Dtoid LA NARP for the first time where I met Chad Concelmo. I met the Pokemon Trainer from There Will Be Brawl the other day. We were drunk. I just finished inFAMOUS...which is as fun as it was shit, much like Mirror's Edge is as amazing as it was awful, but perhaps I'm just jaded.

The recapping team has had a bit of a rough week, so I decided to put this ahead of the other things I need to get done tonight...so I hope you loveable bastards enjoy. Now, I would love to do nothing more than veg out for the rest of the evening playing Bit Trip or Mirror’s Edge, but I’ll be working into the wee hours creating a topographical map of my town with geographic information system software.

Tonight is going to be fun.

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.
