Cblogs of 05/13/2011 and ScottyGasms



So this was meant to be up early yesterday. However, I learned an important lesson about writing up C-Blog posts: Don't, not even for a second, think you'll be okay with closing your word processor and leaving the only copy of your blog in the hands of your browser. Even if all you have to do is write the title then hit post. Also learned the risks of using a non-Chrome browser to post these recaps, because I'm too lazy to log off and back on with the recaps account.

Oh well, live and learn. On the plus side though I've been playing Portal 2 all week, and just wrapped it up yesterday!

I'm so happy that I managed to avoid pretty much all spoilers - even minor things - before playing it. Had the same new and fresh effect that the first Portal had. So in the interests of not being a spoiling dick (ew...), all I'm going to say is that it far exceeded my expectations. Now to start on the co-op!

So... I started to poke around this thing. Maybe I just haven't figured it out, but it looks like it only supports Starcraft II on the PC, and only nine games on 360: 7 sports games and two Capcom fighters. I guess they're focusing on 1v1 competition, but there's plenty of other games I'd like to play. Thankfully I still have regular FNF, and my lovely Monday Night Combat crew. <3

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.
