So, last night, during a game of L4D, I was discussing with my fellow players the game of Humans vs. Zombies, which, surprising to me, none of them knew about. So, I thought I’d give a basic overview here, for anyoe who hasn’t heard of this magnificent game:
Normally played on college campuses, HVZ (called many different things by many people) is a zombie apocalypse LARP. You start off with a group of humans and a group of zombies, both of which wear pre-set bandanas (humans wear them on their arms/legs, zombies on their heads). In the real world, it’s up to the zombies to yank the bandanas off of the humans to “turn” them. But, to defend themselves, the humans use balled-up socks and Nerf guns to shoot zombies in the head. Any zombie shot must stand in place for 15 minutes, until he “respawns”. After a set time (usually a few weeks), the zombies make a final stand against the remaining humans. Here at BG, that means the humans have to make it from the Student Union to the “heli-pad” (the library), where they will be rescued. Whoever is still human at the end wins. Check out all the rules here, and try and get a game going at your college. This shit is fun as hell.

Alright, for today’s cblog goodness, we’ve got the ladies of The View hating on the Wii Fit, the creation of Dtod Denver, and the biggest Mr. Saturn doll I’ve ever seen.

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.
