LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 02-12-09 and ScottyGasms

   0

Hello again, and happy Hamzakah!! Surprisingly not a lot of cblogs today aside from the Hamzakah blogs, although I've always thought it's a good idea to hold off a post when possible if a meme is brewing.

Gamewise has been interesting this week. Made a decision that I was going to forgo some of the extra stuff and try to finish Lost Odyssey. This means I won't be getting all the skills, treasures or spells. Of course as soon as I started to make preparations for the final area, I saw there were one or two really good skills from Sed that the immortals should learn that I hadn't yet. So I went to Numara Atoll, where I remembered there was an optional boss I could fight. After that I figured I might as well fight the other optional bosses (I had already beaten the tough one at the Temple of Enlightenment), then I realized it wouldn't take too much more effort to beat the Backyard and challenge that insanely hard boss there.

This is exactly why I try to avoid RPGs! It's an amazing game, but it's taken 70 hours of my life over several months! I just don't have the time to dedicate to a game that massive. :'(

The latest meme to grace the community blogs of Destructoid was Hamzakah. A totally made up holiday that started from what I can tell on this post for a completely unknown reason. While lots of people posted (I believe that my bling Hamza avatar is the best contribution, here's a list of the people who made cblogs specifically dedicated to Hamzakah:

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.
