LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 8/14/10 and 8/15/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

So I've taken a break from Starcraft 2 to read the cblogs and present you with this recap. I'm honestly not sure how much longer I'm going to be playing the game as hardcore as I have been. I've probably put in well over 100 hours in the last 3 weeks, and I'm kind of getting burned out on it. Besides playing tons and tons of multiplayer, I'm presently spending lots of time playing through the single player campaign again on a harder difficulty setting. Once I'm done with that, I'll probably be spending a lot less time with the game.

A lot of my friends were shocked when I posted my official review last week on Gamer Limit and I didn't give it a perfect 10. I mean don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the game, but there are a few small flaws that kept it from the perfect 10 score. If Blizzard could make a couple of tweaks to the multiplayer balance I think it could be perfect.

The next big I'm looking forward to at this point it Metroid: Other M. I really wanted to play it at E3 this year, but the line was typically well over an hour long and I didn't want to waste that much time waiting for a game that was coming out in only a few months. Rest assured, I'm super excited about this game and can't wait to dive into it.

Well, I think that's enough about me for one night. Let's get on with the weekend recaps shall we.

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.
