Cblogs of 08/22/11 and 08/23/11 + Funkisms & PAXisms!


Dag yo! SQUID MAN covered for me last week so you get a double dose of Funky tonight! I’ll try to make this quick since my plane leaves for PAX in like 12 hours and I still need to pack! We had a fair number of blogs the past couple of days and some of them were gems!

That said, I’m pretty excited to see everyone again in Seattle, but saddened at the same time some people can’t make it. Regardless, it shall be a grand old time! Just a mini-heads up, expect Recaps to possibly be very slow the week after on behalf of QALAMARI and myself. Apologies go out to DRAGON MAN, since I don’t have enough time to do a Quad Recap. Still, those of you going to PAX, I may be bringing presents again, so hopefully you go to the gatherings and such, hahaha!

I cannot wait for this . . .

Also, I owe BULLETMAGNET a blog or two . . . or three for like 3 months or longer, which I haven’t had time to post before PAX, but I’ll leave him and you guys a taste of the Japanese/PAL exclusives I’ve gotten over the past little while . . .

I may have also gotten some other Dreamcast gems . . . like the Dreamcast Direct Limited Edition of a game that sounds like “Lady Gaga” . . . only replace “Lady” with a game company . . . hahaha!

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.
