LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 10/31/09 and 11/1/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

So I'm only 6 days away from my 30th birthday, and I have to tell you all that I honestly can't believe it. I don't feel like I'm almost 30. I feel like I'm 22 still, which I guess is a good thing. Part of me is a little freaked out though, because I had all these things I wanted to do by the time I was 30 and I haven't done any of them. Where did the time go?

So I would write more, but I'm extremely tired right now because I've been playing Borderlands all freaking day. I finally beat it tonight after 22 hours of play time. The game is freaking awesome, but the PC version suffers from a lot of problems. If you are interested, you can find my official review of the game up on Gamer Limit in a couple of days.

For now though I need to head to bed. I've been living in the world of Pandora the entire weekend. Tomorrow it's time to get back to the real world. I hope you all had a good Halloween.

Now onto 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.
