C Blogs of 2/10/11 + Late-but-not-my-fault Strykisms


I would have loved nothing more than to be able to post these recaps last night. Unfortunately, I couldn't log into the recappers account. Seems as though the password had been deleted. Isn't that fun? So now you get late caps again. Oops.

To make up for it, have some Donald Duck cartoons:

*- Brain Candy is readying the release of its game Fray, and strangely Dtoid has yet to get on the ball.

*- Final Fantasy VI is a prime example of in-game abilities and techniques tying in the character development.

*- Who wants to play with the Dead Space 2 devs this Saturday?

*- Vote for Thaticanyaks to win the "Be Buried in Silent Hill" contest!

*- Maken X? The hell is that!?

*- A frightening future. How could DRM be handled on the next round of home consoles?

M- podius is a necrophiliac, is in love with a dead franchise.
M- "Cod blops" sounds like street slang for fish droppings.
M- "Know what I hate about Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines? It's too God damn good!"
P- Zero Cool 18: Totally Legal Edition.

T- The 3D invasion.
T- Say! Isn't that that Vanilla Ice song?
T- The day the music died? Nah.
T- Catherine is bringing sexy back right.
T- Good riddance to bad rubbish, you say?

R- Contemplating the universe one avatar-creation screen at a time.
R- Two chicks at the same time.
?- You are a strange one, LawofThermalDynamics.

COPY-PASTA- If you must pimp your other site and its podcast, at least link directly TO the podcast.
COPY-PASTA- The 3DS sounds great, but please don't copy-paste from your other site.
F- Fucking thief.
F- Heed his advice! Don't fap his blog!
F- "Short thought" indeed.
F- You can't just link to someone else's article and be done with it!

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.
