LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 8/28/10 and 8/29/10 + SilverDragonisms

So something REALLY REALLY big happened in my life this weekend, but I don't want to mention what it is yet here, because I plan to make an entire post about it. For now I'll just leave you all wondering what it is I'm talking about ....

I do need to mention that while I've been obsessing over Starcraft 2 the past month or so, I'm sorry to say that's all about to come to an end. I'll be taking a break from it, starting Tuesday, to play Metroid: Other M. I'm reviewing the game for Gamer Limit and I need to try and get through it as fast as possible. As soon as that's done with though I'll be back to my old stomping grounds in Starcraft 2.

Anyways, I don't really have much else to say right now. This was a crazy and awesome weekend and I can't wait to make a post telling everyone all about it. Until then, enjoy these weekend 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.
