LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 1/23/10 and 1/24/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

So I spent the last week playing Dark Void, because I'm reviewing it for Gamer Limit, and let me just warn you all NOT to play it. It would truly be a complete waste of your money. It's got some really interesting ideas, but has extremely poor execution, disgusting graphics, major sound issues, and a story that was written my a 5th grader. If you need a more in-depth explanation for why I disliked the game so much, you can read my review which should be posted in 24 to 48 hours. Trust me though, it sucks!

Now that I'm done with Dark Void, I can dedicate the next couple weeks to playing my most anticipated game of 2010, MASS EFFECT 2. You know it's kind of sad that the game I'm most looking forward to this year comes out only 3 weeks into it. That kind of makes the rest of the year seem like a huge let down now that I think of it. Oh well, it won't matter. If all the reviews I've read are correct, I'll probably end up replaying this game 2 or 3 times over the course of the year. I can't wait.

So I need to know if anyone else is as excited about Mass Effect 2 as I am. Anyone at all? I'm actually thinking about going to GameStop at midnight to pick it up and just staying up all night until I fall asleep with my controller in my hand. Sucks that I have to be at work the next day at 8AM, but it would be worth it.

Well enough about me going ga ga over Mass Effect 2. GO BUY IT! Time for your regularly scheduled weekend cblog 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.
