LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/1/09 + Earlyisms

   0


Hey kids. Early recaps are early due to feminine troubles. No, I dont mean that Im on my period or I cut myself while doing the dishes. Its a long story, and Id rather take my mind off it with a bit of news.

I hate to be a whore for my work, but I recently got a gig writing for Negative Gamer. Yesterday I posted a story about my time trying to get LEGO: Rock Band for free from Old Navy. Its probably my favorite piece that Ive ever written. And if it wouldnt be too much to ask, would you kindly take a look at it, and tell me what you think? Im real proud about it, and more kind words/criticisms about it would really help me out.

Alright, now that Im done doing the internet equivalent of hooking, lets get to the recaps! On todays show weve got brilliant storage solutions, a rare batch of news posts, and God in the Mushroom Kingdom.



*-Ever wanted to create the perfect gaming set-up, keeping the kids in mind? Everyones favorite craineum came up with the bitchinest solution ever.

*-Want to ask any of the Divinity II staff a question? Ask WastelandTraveler, and hell send it along when he interviews them.

*-Hot damn, sister: Faith made some fucking saweet baby Mario and baby Luigi picture frames.

*-Aside from the link to a great article about video game documentaries, and thoughts about Assassins Creed 2, Rev. Anthony gets my seal of approval for the last line in this blog.

*-A bit of a eulogy for a fallen website, a Niero appearance, and frank discussions about gaming blogs make this and the comments within a good read.

*-As a kid, Excremento and his friend had a genius idea for Battletoads that he talks about in this interesting Musing.

*-randombullseye gives us a great look at the not-downloading side of gaming.

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.
