LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 8/18/09 + Pendeltonisms

   0


So, today, at the crack of goddamned dawn, I moved most of my stuff into my new place. I began renting an apartment with a good friend of mine, and almost all of the essentials are moved in. On top of that, I spoke with Bryan from Apocalypse Tattoo in Seattle, as well as Niero, to iron out the plans for the Destructoid Tattoo (mre info later). AND I started a new female character on Fallout 3, which is fast becoming the most fun RPG/shooter I’ve ever played.

It’s been a productive day.

This productiveness even bled into the cblogs today, where you kids once again spoiled me with a dearth of topsauce, the idea for a new cblog game, and…umm…facecock.



*-Another spectacular entry into kjohnson1585’s script for Ratchet and Clank: All or Nothing.

F-Well, you DID call it a failblog, so…

F-Let’s play a game; every time you see a really good title attached to a no-avatar’d newcomer, and correctly guess that it’s a front for the furry comic, you get a point. 10 points = free handjob from Hamza at PAX.

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.
