LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 7/24/10 and 7/25/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

I honestly can't believe that Starcraft 2 comes out in less than 24 hours. It's been an extremely long 12 year wait since the original Starcraft was released, but on Tuesday it will all be worth it. To say I have extremely high expectations for this game is truly an understatement.

I've spent the last 4 months playing the beta and loved every second of it. I would spend $60 on the multiplayer alone, and that's not even what I'm looking forward to the most. It's the single player that really has my interest peaked. After spending the last 2 months reading tons of Starcraft novels, I know the lore inside and out, and I really look forward to seeing where the story goes.

This is Blizzard we are talking about here people. They simply don't know how to make a bad game. Can you imagine what the industry would be like if every single company put as much time, love, dedication, and hard work into every game they made like Blizzard does. Sure, there would be a lot less games to play, but they would all be spectacular.

Suffice to say, when Tuesday gets here, the only place you'll find me for the next couple months is on Battle.net playing Starcraft 2. If you are interested in playing with me, let me know below in the comments and I'll add you to my SC2 friends list.

Now let's get to your regularly scheduled weekend Cblog recaps.

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.
