LONG BLOG

Hello everyone! I'll be covering three days this week: Friday, Saturday AND Sunday! MacManus has some important business to attend to for the time being, so I'll be taking over Saturdays indefinitely, and Crackity Jones was busy having a grand time at PAX East, so Sunday fell into my lap this week as well. Somehow, there were still less blogs to read than a normal Friday, which was odd... PAX weekends always tend to be super slow for some reason.

And speaking of PAX, there were a ton of cool indie games that were shown which I'm really excited about. Hyper Light Drifter, Below, Child of Light and Gods Will be Watching all look like games I need to play! The Indie Megabooth always seems to be the coolest part of PAX to me, and I'm glad to see it still didn't fail to deliver this year!


This just looks all kinds of AMAZING!

Unfortunately, I'll have to keep these -isms short. I wanted to post this up before work, and I'm quickly running out of time! Anyway, I'll see you all next weekend!

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.
