LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 7/14/09 + Pendeltonisms

   0
Late night tonight, folks. I recently bought me a PSP for the 2nd time, and, since I’ve got nothing better to talk about, here’s a shitty 1 sentence review of every game I’ve played on the system since I bought it:

Lumines 2: The best puzzle game, ever, hands down.
Mega Man: Powered Up: The best Mega Man game, ever, hands down.
Gunpey: The 2nd best puzzle game, ever.
Mega Man X Maverick Hunter: Great, but it bastardizes the Storm Eagle music (i.e. greatest gaming music ever).
Patapon 2: OMG THE CUTTEST THING EVAR.
Crisis Core FF7: If you liked/loved any of the continuing saga games/movies, you’ll love this.
Popolocrois: Why aren’t people talking more about this awesome RPG?

And that’s it. Now, as for the recap, all I’m gonna say is this:

Jesus, people, you need to start posting your amazing blogs on OTHER days of the week. The Topsauce is getting pretty crowded on Tuesday nights!

*-Wow, check out this bitchin’ poster SuitcoatAvenger made for one of my favorite John Carpenter movies.

*-An interesting article about the problems with moving overseas while still wanting to keep your Steam and XBL accounts alive.

*-A peek at Wry Guy’s new review series, and why reviews today kinda suck.

*-A great run-down of some of gaming’s best boot-up screens, with the king taking the top honors.

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.
