LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 6/26/10 and 6/27/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

After my 10 day hiatus to Los Angeles and E3, Im back in action recapping the weekend cblogs. I have to tell you that it feels great to be back, but I already miss all the awesome people I met last week during E3. Theres so much to tell you all about, but unfortunately I dont really have time right now. I do plan on posting a couple of Cblogs to recap my incredible week, as well as to share some pictures of my experiences. Be on the lookout for those sometime this coming week.

I want to send a major shout out to Cadtalfryn for covering my butt while I was away. He did an absolute awesome job handling the weekend recaps. I actually got to meet him at the Scott Pilgrim Dtoid party while I was in LA, and Im so glad I had the opportunity. Not only did I have a blast hanging out with the guy, he was also nice enough to drive me, Sean Carey, and Andrew Kauz back to our hotel room at the end of the night when we were drunk. We even ran into some trouble with the law on our way back, but Cadtalfryn was able to get out of it without any trouble at all.

I also got to meet a ton of other Dtoiders while I was in LA, including Jim Sterling, Chad Concelmo, Ben Perlee, Hamza, Hollie Bennet, Puppylicks, Technophile, and the list goes on and on and on. There are honestly too many to name here. Like I said, I plan on talking more about my adventures later this week when I get around to posting my E3 blogs. Just know that last week was one of the best weeks of my entire life. Ill never forget it.

Before I go, let me just rant a second about a new article I posted today on Gamer Limit. The article itself is about 3D gaming on the PS3 and how, after trying it at E3, Im very disappointed with what Ive seen so far. The article is a huge success right now, with tons and tons of hits, but the only people whove commented are angry Sony fanboys who want to crucify me. I honestly dont know how Jim puts up this kind of shit. Do these people even take the time to read my article? Im trying to not let it bother me, but after a while it just begins to wear me a bit thin. Ugh, oh well.

Thats enough about me for one week. Now lets get to your regularly scheduled weekend recaps.






*-Technophile tells an inspiring story about how his love for video games changed his life forever. You seriously need to read this!

*-Jonathan Holmes posts every single video he did this year at E3. The man is an E3 video GOD! I had the chance to meet him in the press room, but everytime I saw him he was busy as hell editing video.

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.
