LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2/22/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

So today, after an intense week of 16 non-stop boss battles, I finally beat Shadow of the Colossus. I just want to thank all the people who persuaded me to play this game next. You were all totally right, and I am really glad that I did. I don't want to say too much now, because I want to write my thoughts up in a blog which I'll post in a couple days, but all I can say right now is that was one the most incredible video game experiences I have ever had!

So is everyone ready for the final week of February? I know I am? How many people are getting Killzone 2 at the end of the week? Please raise your hands! I got a chance to play the demo this week, and I have to say I am pretty excited. I must admit it doesn't seem to bring anything new to the FPS genre at all, but it will be nice to have a PS3 exclusive that actually can live up to the hype. After all the other failed attempts, like Lair, Haze, and Heavenly Sword, it will be nice for the PS3 to have a game that it can hype to sell more systems. I hope to see you all online next Friday night for the first Dtoid Killzone 2 FNF. Until then, this is SilverDragon signing off ....

Now to the recaps of the day ...

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.
