LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 1/2/10 and 1/3/10 + SilverDragonisms

I had this entire last week of work in which to stay home and play games, and it was absolutely wonderful. After beating Batman: Arkham Asylum earlier in the week, I moved onto Assassin's Creed 2. I'm about 20 hours in so far, and I still feel like I have another 20 hours to play. That game is simply incredible. I honestly have no idea why Jim Sterling gave it such a low review score. The more and more I play the game, the more I realize Jim was full of complete shit when he wrote that review. He must have had a huge fucking stick up his ass when he played the game or something.

I also picked up and started playing Torchlight this week. Now while that is also a great game, there is no mistaking that it is a complete Diablo rip off. Now I know it was made by the same guys from Blizzard who made the original smash hit, but still, you think they should have tried to make it less obvious. But no, its just DIABLO DIABLO DIALBO all up in your face. Oh well. I guess that's a good thing, because I loved Diablo, and I love Torchlight.

Well that's it from me for now. Let's get on with your weekend cblogs recaps.

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.
