LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 5/18/10 + Super Late-isms

   0


It's been a long time since I played catch-up for a missed day. Everyone has been on the ball these last few months, but inevitable there would be a hiccup. No biggie. It's been over a week since the 18th, but I don't like leaving gaps in the archive.

So...




*- Chad Concelmo needs (last week he did, at least) questions for his E3 trip.

*- I have no problem with B-movie games.


A- 2BA Master: Tiers are for... well, you know.
A- F*ck Citizen Kane.
S- Kingcrude 4: Heavy Rain has no class.





F- PS3 Fight Club is coming (actually, it's already here).
D- There's a Destructoid online team for Skate 3.
S- Mr Wrighty is gonna be waxing his beam saber.
S- Misstawnii is coming to the end of year one of game college.
C- Newbie Jack Barwell asks whether you like short-and-sweet, open-and-robust, or both in gaming?
C- Here's a thought: Stop giving Microsoft your business.
R- A belated "Goodbye, Anthony" post from captpudge.


V- youkilledmyguy started a "Let's Play" run of Hitman: Blood Money.
T- RetroSoldier will always remember these games.
T- Beezy fires a few shotgun rounds of Alan Wake impressions.
T- Crunshii loves him some anime-speak.

A- youngskeletor painted a Nuka Cola with an iPod app.
M- Deathjazzninja shares his musical acquisitions.


V- A Naruto-Ponyo crossover.
C- Steve Jobs' not being a fan of porn deserves a longer post.


COPY PASTA- Look. A new tag.
COPY PASTA- When will they ever learn?
F- Bad joke.
F- You've burned too many bridges for me to care about your writing anymore.
F- Hmm... I don't think I can let another one of your short posts slide.
F- Smells like stealth trolling to me.
F- Wow.

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.
