LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 5/15/10 and 5/16/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

Iím not sure if anyone has noticed, but it has been almost six months to the day since Iíve actually written a Dtoid community blog. Sure I do the recaps every weekend, but I havenít actually written a real blog since Christmas Eve of 2009. You might think this is because I spend all my time writing for Gamer Limit, but I havenít written for them much lately either. The last review I wrote was for God of War 3, and besides that Iíve only done a couple news posts here and there.

The main reason I havenít had any time to write the last six months is because Iíve been working my ass off trying to finish graduate school. Well, Iím happy to announce that as of this weekend, I have officially graduated college, again, with my Masters of Science in Electrical Engineering. Iíve been going back to school now at nights for 5 years, while still working 40+ hours a week at my job, and all that pain and suffering has finally come to an end. I have to admit that itís an incredibly good feeling to finally have that goal accomplished and out of the way.

Now that Iím done I can finally get back to playing games and writing reviews. Actually, Iím working on a review right now for Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands. Unfortunately Iím under NDA so I canít talk about it, but if you are interested you should check out Gamer Limit on Tuesday for my review. If you are interested in the game youíll definitely want to read it.

Well I hope everyone had a good weekend. Before I go I just want to give a shout out to the school I just graduated from: North Carolina State University. Iíve given that school 10 years of my life, and tens of thousands of dollars, and I donít regret a second of any of 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.
