LONG BLOG

CBlogs o' 11/11/2013 + MacMangasms in 3D~~~~~

   0


So I finally got a Smart TV with 3D from Samsung. HOLY SHIT



I now see what all the fuss is about. I wound up spending the past few days just wasting my life away, but in glorious 3D. I'd always thought the whole 3D thing was kinda dumb, but it was on sale. Wound up watching all kinds of National Geographic and seeing the Hobbit in 3D was pretty neat. Then came the tipping point.



Batman: Arkham Asylum

I got the Game O' The Year edition way back brushing off the fact that there's a 3D feature on it. But man, is it awesome. It's not the most mindblowing 3D you'll ever see but playing a video game in 3D (on a large screen, that is) was an impressive experience. I'd love to see other companies explore this avenue.



Anyone else out there a fan of 3D gaming?

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.
