Cblog Recaps of 10/16/09 + TOMOPOPisms

   0


In our hustle and bustle of videogames previews, reviews, journalism as well as our own home brewed Friday Night Fights one could be forgiven for overlooking Destructoid's sister site Tomopop. I, Y0j1mb0, would like to show you not just the errors of your ways for not giving Tomo some love but why it's essential for you to do so. Considering that you pretty much know just about everybody that works there already like Topher, Nihon Tiger, Brad Rice and more, all guided with loving care by Colette Bennett, should pretty much tell you it's a quality affair over yonder.

And really where else are you going to find kick ass coverage of collectible toy culture? From anime figure reviews to wonderful pictorial spreads like the one I highlighted today in our Topsauce, go create an account and stay a bit to check out the hard work and passion they have for toys. You'll find it to be equal to Destructoid's own when it comes to games. Plus there be nekkid anime figures too. O.o Now back to your regularly scheduled Cblog recaps. Spoiler alert: There were great, funny, kooky and all around fun blogs. Let's have a closer look, shall we.


*-This is EPIC and just a taste of what Tomopop is all about.
*-Did anybody else draw these as a kid?
*-Homes blog about the pathology of fanboys is a good read.
*-Walkyourpath's latest in his ongoing series. Required reading.
*- The 16th issue of The Obscurer Tribune. What I wouldn't give for a periodical style printed version of these.
*-I don't care what anybody else thinks...Krow's video is ridiculously entertaining. Plus he needs to get a haircut, hippie.

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.
