LONG BLOG

Cblog Recaps of 12/9/08 + Pendeltonisms

   0


So, I just got another copy of Chrono Cross in the mail, having lost my older version a while back. Honestly, I have no idea why people think the game is shit. I might go so far as to say that, not only is Chrono Cross a worthy successor to Chrono Trigger, it actually bests the game in certain aspects. I’m thinking about writing a series of blogs addressing the critiques everyone gives towards the game, such as the battle system and story. Anyone care to tell me why you think CC is shit?

Well, let’s be honest, you didn’t come here to listen to me gush about a game a lot of people hate. YOU CAME HERE FOR CBLOG RECAPS! Well, that’s too bad, because today’s blogs are filled with massive amounts of fail, most of which come from Dtoid’s unofficial stable of failblog writers. I’m gonna guess you know who you are. Other than the fail, the blogs give us voting for video game awards, a witch who turns into a sausage, and the introduction of a new Dtoid beard.

Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society, I call this story…

*fwoosh*

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.
