Cblog Recaps of 10/09/09 + Y0j1mb0isms

   0


Ever since I got Demon's Souls I haven't been able to put it down. My impression blog of this game is coming soon but in the meantime that picture above is the only game that can pry me away from hunting demons. Funny that a cheap charming downloadable puzzle game is as addicting as a full priced one. Go check out Destructoid's review of Critter Crunch and then promptly buy it. This game kicks major ass and you need to own it. Its that awesome. Here's another look at it right after the next paragraph for those not in the know.

Also on a Cblog related topic, I don't think I've ever topsauced as much stuff as I have today. I make it a point to literally put the cream of the crop here by my standards which usually results in less than other recappers. That and I'm old. It warms my cold heart to see the size of topsauce grow. As a matter of fact all across the board everybody is getting better. A special shout out to mkshiranui who's writing is improving. You're getting close to topsauce.

*- Tubatic's masturbatory compendium of his Way of the Samurai 3 blogs is what being passionate for a game is all about.
*-John Johnson's Monthly Musing is a good read indeed.
*-Kauza's humor is infectious.
*-I actually don't agree with megaStryke's assertion that immersion is a nonsense buzzword word...but I can't deny it was a worthwhile read.
*-The Obscurer Tribune + Topsauce always go hand in hand.
*-A Fan-Fic Dare. Quirky and very cool.
*-THIS IS AMAZING.

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.
