LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 10/21/08 + Pendeltonisms

   0

Alright, folks, before we get started today, I’d like to draw attention to one of the blogs not in the Top Blog area.. galabug wrote today about a DLC system the Super Famicom hadcalled Satellaview. Read more about it on his blog. Anyway, as I was looking up information about it, I found out that, in Japan, there was a SNES remake of the NES Zelda game called BS Zelda no Densetsu. I was able to not emulate it this evening, and, I have to say, it’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Aside from the Link to the Past graphics, the game has a real-time clock that relates to events that happen at certain times on the map, AND the choice to play as a girl (there’s no Link or Zelda in the game, just Satellaview’s mascots) from the beginning, AND an even more different dungeon placement than either quest on the NES. If you’re a fan of the original NES game AT ALL, you deserve to not play this game in any way possible.

With that behind us, on to the blogs! Tonight, we’ve got massive amounts of fail, a bunch of rat bastards getting LittleBigPlanet, and a survey about wiping your ass. AND HERE WE GOOOOOOOOO!

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.
