Cblog recaps 10/26/08 + Randombullisms

   0

Hey guys, been playing the new games yet? I've not even played Mercenaries 2, let alone Fable or Saints Row 2. Both copies of Dead Space were rented out last week at blockbuster. Maybe this week I can pick up one of these new games? As always, you can just add: randombullseye to your xbox friends list and we can play something sometime.
Oh and that show True Blood. I like that show. That's a fun show.

F Kitsu posts a blog that they say will be hidden. They also write that their avatar is "rubbish." Rather short, and why post something that will get hidden later?

-(randombullseye)
Oh and Bonerquest is still in development by the way. Keep your eyes open for it. Will you accept the Bonerquest? No seriously, will you accept it?

Also please, no one notice that this isn't the usual time for the recaps. It isn't early morning at all, just think of it as late (er) night, with sunlight.

First Edit: Also if any of the links don't work, tell me in the comments and I can fix it later. Notepad caused a particularly awful screw up when I pasted over into the blog box and I had to do backspace through every link to get enter spaces out. So it is very possible I erased something.
Second Edit: It seems to still not be working, I don't know what is wrong.

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.
