LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 10/6/09 + Pendeltonisms

   0


For some reason, I’ve been playing the strangest mix of games the past few days. First, I’ve played the Evil Lord demo for Half-Minute Hero, like, a BILLION times. If you haven’t tried it, and have a PSP, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!?!?! THE EVIL LORD HAS A BAT-UMBRELLA THAT’S ACTUALLY HIS GIRLFRIEND!!! Awesome. Also got some time with Tetris DS for the first time, and enjoyed the different modes. Plus, did a random speed run of Portal yesterday; got under 4 hours, which is my best time so far. God I love this industry…

You know what else I love? The Cblogs! And in today’s blogs, we’ve got untold amounts of fail, a need for Tetris Attack, and the most sexual stories about a Tank ever.



*-This is why I love this place.

*-Lenore Coffee continues her awesome Defiling The Wasteland series with part 3.

*-New member Lachlan Watts starts out his blogging career not with an intro, but a pretty interesting read about his gamertag and online names in general.

*-Theres not much more I can say about this strange and awesome post, other than…RASPUTIN.

*-I agree with everything in this very well-made post; World at War is better than Modern Warfare.

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.
