Cblog recaps 11/23/08 + Randombullisms

   0

Dependable old weekend recaps on a Monday morning. Who doesn't love that? Sorry about my attitude yesterday I was running late that morning, I had worked a full shift the day before, and was trying to get all my stuff together. It isn't exactly easy putting these things together, and I apologize for not being able to post this last night.

About to play a few rounds of Call of Duty 4 then finish up a review I'm writing for another game. Still putting off hooking my playstation one up.

And here you go, your starting line up on the Destructoid recaps! YAL READY FOR THIS DOO DOO DEET DEET DOO DOO DEET. DUNT DUNT DUNT DUH! YAL READY FOR THIS!?


*- Free Dr. Pepper. I didn't sign up but was aware of this. Oh well.
*- All I saw was "Mother F- Nintendo" and I knew this post should be put in the top picks. I've imagined this to be a hilarious post about how angry this poster is at Nintendo. I can't wait to read it later.


A- Someone is organizing what they want to write on their blog. Good luck.
A- Something about a toilet and video games.
M- Monthly Musing: Banjo Kazooie
S- Castlevania 2 from Random Select series.
S- Mega Man 7 from Random Select series.




D- A long time member has a death in his family. Everyone put him in your prayers.
D- Another Destructoid member is dealing with a death in the family. Again, our prayers go out to you in your time of grief.
E- Miami Narp
E- Another Miami Narp post. Also possible Gears 2 spoilers, if I find out that what they said is in the game, I will probably not care.
E- A third post about the Miami Narp. I won't read this one, that last one told me way more than I ever wanted to know.
I- A new members introduction post. Welcome to Destructoid, I love you.
?- Miss Jim all you want, he's American now. I for one would like to welcome our new english overlord.


R- A Gears 2 review.
R- Another gears 2 review.
S- Short blog about gears 2.
T- Fallout 3 Disappointments
T- Another Nintendo post. From the opening lines, it implies they're angry. It helps that I read everything this poster writes like a cartoon parody of the X-men.
T- It says Spoiler Free thoughts on Fable 2, but I won't risk reading about it at all.
V- A posters little brother made a half life 2 video.
V- Chrono Trigger video advertisements.
?- Something about Pokemon
?- Something about Game Informer
?- This member wants to play Left 4 Dead once a week.
?- Something about the Zune playing games.


A- Art dump.
A- Gamer arts and crafts sale
A- Game charms. Also as far as I can tell this is a new member, so welcome to Destructoid! Also according to the comments and context clues on their profile, their a female gamer. No pictures of themselves. No plugs over and over for other websites they write on. More girls should post like this.


F- Post about Old Boy with WILL SMITH.
N- Someone killed them self on a web cam. A destructoid member writes some reactions. Comments aren't bad to read either.
?- Podcast needs someone else. I guess this goes in other.


No fail on Sunday. Just like hard liquor.

My avatar is evolving...

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.
