LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 11/7/09 and 11/8/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

So I successfully turned 30 this weekend. I just want to thank everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday in the awesome and incredible post Yojimbo put up about me becoming an "old man". I have to admit that the picture he found of a dragon blowing out the candles on a birthday cake was freaking priceless. Thanks so much Yojimbo. Much love man!

In terms of gaming, I have been spending all my time the last 2 or 3 days playing LEGO Rock Band. My official review should go up sometime in the middle of next week on Gamer Limit, but just let me say that this is a game you should not pass up. I realize it probably turns a lot of people off because it seems like a kids game, but it is one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had playing a rhythm game in a long time.

Well I am still pretty hung over from the huge party I had last night, so I'm going to call it quits for now. I should be posting some stuff this week in the cblogs, so look out for that, and I hope you all had a good weekend. :-)

Now onto your regularly scheduled weekend 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.
