LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 8-21-09 + Old Skool Y0j1mb0isms

   0


Ladies...Gentlemen...it's been far too long since I've done a recap. Have you missed me? It's okay if you didn't, for I have missed you nevertheless. The best job here in Dtoid in my humble opinion is this one right here. Reading all the cblogs you create on a daily basis. Whether they are good, great, amazing or fail, what everybody here has to remember is that without you blogging, Destructoid wouldn't be half of what it is now. You, the community, are the lifeblood that runs through our gaming robotic entity. While recapping last night's blogs I noticed how little there was to recap. Why back in my days of recapping we had quite a bit more.

I'm here to urge everybody to blog. You don't need to be a fantastic writer to blog y'know. All you gotta do is express yourself about whatever strikes your fancy effectively. The stigma of failing shouldn't deter would be closet bloggers because we all eventually fail before we get better. Hell, I've failed more than my share here but it's the pursuit of clarity, of getting my point, my opinion out and be understood, whether right or wrong, that drives me, as it should you.

To those who haven't blogged in awhile, or those who are lurking in the shadows, enjoying this fine site, I ask of you one thing. Blog more. Know that only through your participation will this fraternity called Destructoid grow and flourish even more.

Now let us take a look at what was last night on the cblogs. Spoiler Alert: There were many blogs that were funny, unique, awesome and even some fail. Lets begin with:



*-This blog wasn't created last night but it NEEDS to be a TOP PICK regardless.
*-Three things to improve the Pokemon Series.

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.
