LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 11/3/08 + Jimboisms

   0




I'm back, again... reading the cblogs of Destructoid in all its totality and recapping them for your reading pleasure. Your usual Cblog Recapper, the gentleman known as Casual Weaponry, unfortunately couldn't make the proceedings tonight due to a little thing called voting. So since I'm your recapper tonight I thought I would use this opportunity to tell you what games have been occupying my time to the point that I'm not writing blogs lately. Still playing Persona3:FES, as well as FARCRY2 which I liken to GTA IV in the jungle ( Love the game ), Little Big Planet, working on my next level and rounding it off: SOCOM:Confrontation.



Dear Lord, I can't stop playing this game. It's a drug you see. No multiple lives, no shields, no auto aiming, just you, your skill and a heartbeat from death or victory. With the latest patch this game is running like butter. Do yourselves a favor, if you haven't picked it up yet... now is the time to do it. With the bundled headset it's a steal and it rocks. The Destructoid Clan is in full force and this upcoming Saturday, SOCOM Nights debuts. Now that I have gotten that plug out of the way, let us take a closer look at what was before.

Spoiler Alert: There were a lot of interesting, newsy, strange and plain fail things you may have missed.

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.
