LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 4/14/09 + Pendelton Whoring

   0


So, this is a repost of yesterday's blog, and yes I'm a whore, but, I wanna get as many entries as I can:

I'm calling on any and all Dtoid artists/doodlers/what-have-yous to come forth and give me tattoo designs. Basically, I'd like something small (no bigger than 5 inches...Jesus, how many times have I said that?*), and it has to be your interpretation of Mr. Destructoid's head. I have 2 designs I like so far, and I'm looking for more. Why? Well, once I have in a bunch of designs, I'm gonna have the community vote for which piece will be forever emblazoned on my hairy, goulish-white flesh. YES, YOU, THE COMMUNITY, WILL DETERMINE WHICH TATTOO I GET!

Here's how it's gonna work: anyone who wants to enter, send me a PM or an email (at [email protected]) with your piece of art. My favorite 5 pieces will go head-to-head in a community poll, where anyone in the community can vote on the winner. Said winner will not only get to revel in the fact that your art will be eternally etched onto me, but they'll also get a $20 PSN/360/Wii point card for their efforts.

All submissions MUST BE SENT IN by next Wednesday night at midnight. The winners will be posted, and the poll readied 2 weeks from today. So, be sure to come back and choose what I get tattooed on my body!!!

Now to the recaps!

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.
