LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/17/08 + SilverDragonisms

   0

Njsykora unfortunately couldn't do the recaps tonight, so I'm filling in for the 2nd time this week. I have to say recapping went a lot more smoothly for me tonight then it did on Monday night. That could be because there were a decent amount of Fail blogs today, but it could also be because Monday was the first Cblog recap I ever did, so I was pretty lost and confused. As I already said though, tonight went much smoother and I am glad it did.

So Yojimbo has been giving me a lot of crap lately about not buying SOCOM for the PS3. He enjoys reminding me that I make more money then probably most of the community members on Dtoid, and that I should therefore have the money to buy this game. He has been bugging me about the game for over 2 months now. I am honestly starting to believe he is never going to stop, and at this point I'm willing to buy it simply to shut him up. UGH!

Anyways .... before I start the recaps let me present to you my daily dragon picture .... enjoy ...

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.
