LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 4/5/09 + Jimboisms

   0




I'm back... reading the cblogs of Destructoid in all its totality and recapping them for your reading pleasure. Your usual Cblog Recapper unfortunately couldn't make the proceedings tonight due to his prior commitment to a swingers convention. Go get them tiger. So since I'm your recapper tonight I thought I would use this opportunity to address the new DSi and a cblogger who has moved on to greener pastures. A gentleman who was a constant fixture on our cblogs. I, of course, am talking about Matthew "Cowzilla" Razak.

Matthew graduates to Weekend Destructoid editor. I would like to extend congratulations to him by his Cblog name one last time and toast. I raise my glass to Cowzilla and wish him much success on a very well earned position. Best of luck brother.

You gotta love a place that hires from the community. Seriously how awesome is Destructoid? That awesome Ladies & Gents. Who's next to move up the ranks of the Destructoid Hierarchy? Next up Nihon Tiger for Editor! Or maybe it will be you.

Now that I have gotten that out of the way, let us take a closer look at what was before. Spoiler Alert: There were a lot of interesting, newsy, strange, fun and plain fail things you may have missed.

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.
