LONG BLOG

Cblog Recaps of 2/10/09 + Pendeltonisms

   0


I was gonna make a separate blog about this, but, due to time constraints (read: Left 4 Dead), Ive decided to put this here:

So, I recently began taking a glass sculpture and blowing class, namely because of A) my love of watching it as a child, and B) because some of my friends were in the glass program. One of those friends, who goes by the moniker Adam, created this beauteous piece of work here:






Yes, I know the pics are blurry. All you need to know is that that is thats Bowser, made entirely out of glass. The display hes currently in has him grasping, oh yes, a REAL FLAMETHROWER in his left hand. Its one of the coolest art pieces Ive seen in a long time.

NOW TO THE REcapswow, were rather light on content tonight, folks. Oh well, just makes my job easier, I guess. Anyway, in the recaps, and old man talking about old man things, how great Nintendo is doing, and how poorly Sega is sucking.

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.
