LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 5/25/10 + Pendeltonisms

   0


A bit of a crazy today. Moved out of my last college apartment to finally get all my shit home (read: parent’s house). Almost fully set up with all my cool shit in my room. Next week I’ll have pics of my new set-up, either up here or in a cblog (whenever the fuck I get around to making those again). This is, in fact, the first thing I’ve written at my new work station! Be proud, recap: you’re making history right now!

Alright, enough talking to inanimate…objects (how do you classify a cblog?), let’s get to the ‘caps, as the kids call ‘em nowadays.



*- Om Nom On Souls, while suffering from writer’s block, still produced this great blog about game characters.

*- Taking the place of Rev Anthony’s Monthly Musings, the community has taken it upon themselves to keep the topics coming. This month’s: how games are associated with our families.

*- So here’s a new series devoted to interviewing Cblog celebs. This week: Occams electric toothbrush!

*- Results and videos from the FI: Mark of The Wolves Cblog Tournament.

*- Soon to be the top item on everyone’s Christmas list, The Modurn Warfairz 2 Limited Edition Xbox 360.

*- Topsauced only to shed light on the craziest Tumblr I’ve ever seen: Can Mario Fuck It?

*- Stevil gives us another incredible Gamer Obscura about the Police Quest series.

*- Though you’ve probably already bought it if you really wanted to, here’s a wonderful review of GTA4: Episodes from Liberty City.

*- Though I wholeheartedly disagree with the man, BenelliM4 still put out a great piece about why he hates Portal.

*- You had me at the first image: check out this great write-up about the new shmup Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype.

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.
