LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 4/19/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

I went and saw Monsters vs. Aliens this weekend. Has anyone else seen it yet? I personally thought it was just ok. It was a little bit more of a kids movie then I thought it would be, which was unfortunate. Pixar seems to be the only animated studio right now that can seem to find the right mix between adult and kid friendly movies. Oh well. If you haven't seen it, but you're thinking about it, I recommend waiting until the DVD comes out.

So now onto the community and the recaps. For the most part, today was another dreadful Sunday. A couple of people wrote up some good stuff, but for the most part there was a lot of fail going around today. As you can see, the Failtoid section is FULL of blogs for you to take a gander at. The most amusing blog of the day was from a GameStop employee who actually attempted to defend GameStop and it's business practices. You should check it out and decide for yourself whether he did a good job or not. Try not to be too insulted by him when you read his blog though.

Well let's get on with the recaps shall we ...

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.
