LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2/17/10 + Garisonisms

   0



As many of you probably (or probably don't) know, I used to be the full time Cblog Recapper for Fridays! I loved doing it, it made me feel a lot closer to you guys, the Dtoid Army, but I had to quit on account of having other shit come up all the time.

When I heard that the Recapper Team needed someone to fill in for tonight, I happily volunteered. You know, just for shits and giggles eh? I have to admit, it takes a lot of work doing this all the time. If you try to read most of the blogs in a day, it takes me about 3 and a half hours to get it all done. Try to remember how much work goes into getting this done every single day, kay?

Yeah, I guess I should finish this off with telling you guys about what I've been spending most of my time on lately. That would be my personal blog. I find it hard to write about only games, so it's a lot of NVGR shit over there. Check it out if you want. :)

PS: I love you all.


Congratulations guys! There was a fucking SHIT load of topsauce material for today. :D Some genuinely awesome writing, I enjoyed reading all of your stuff.

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.
