LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 4/24/10 and 4/25/10 + SilverDragonisms

Earlier this week I got an email from Amazon.com informing me that I had been invited into the Starcraft 2 Beta since I had pre-purchased a copy of the $100 Collector's Edition earlier this month. To say that I jumped up from my computer and screamed for joy like a little school girl would be putting my reaction mildly. Let's just say that I've been waiting for Starcraft 2 for a REALLY REALLY long time.

So I began playing the beta on Thursday night and I think I have become completely addicted. Last night I played till 3:30AM in the morning. When I finally decided to go to bed I couldn't actually sleep because I kept thinking about different strategies in my head. It eventually got so bad that I woke up and went back to my computer to play until 6AM in the morning. I haven't played a game till 6AM in the morning EVER ..... in my entire life .... and I'm 30, so that's a really fucking long life of gaming. Before this I think 4AM was the latest I ever stayed up playing a game.

Suffice to say, I am pretty sure I'm completely in love with Starcraft 2. The funny thing is, I completely suck at the game. I probably only win 25% of the matches I play online, so most of my time spent playing this game, is spent getting my ass kicked, yet I still enjoy it. That's just a testament to how incredible Starcraft 2 is. If any of you are even remotely interested in this game, I recommend you go preorder it and pick up a beta key and try it out. If you do look me up. My in-game email is: [email protected]

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.
