LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 04-20-09 and ScottyGasms

Another Monday, another week I start off poorly by staying up way too late on a Monday. Huzzah!

Not a lot of blogs to recap this week, bu for the most partt a good selection. Quite a few monthly musings that are almost always a joy to read. Much love to all of you. :)

So... does anybody actually think the L4D DLC is coming out tomorrow? This is Valve we're talking about here. Even if it does I doubt I'll be playing it tomorrow though. Life stuff aside the oddity known as Zeno Clash is supposed to be coming out tomorrow, which is likely what I'll be playing if I'm playing anything.

Been going though another one of those phases where I'm trying to get rid of lots of old junk. Thought some of it might have been worth something on eBay, but alas none of it is. So I have some really old stuff, some of which may be video game related, that I am looking to get rid of. Any ideas for a community contest? ^_^

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.
