Cblogs of 5/14 & 6/18/2018 + Arkham Bore

I am very near finishing Batman: Arkham Knight when I came into the not-so-sudden realization that I wasn’t much enjoying my time with it. It didn’t take long for that thought to register, because it was burrowing in the b...

Cblogs of 5/28/18 + Back From the U.S. of A

My vacation ended and now I am back home from the U.S. of A. It started as expected, with a long border interrogation process that caused my father and I to miss a connecting transfer and ended with a confused Saudi customs agent deba...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Cblogs of 5/13/14 + A museum but for farts

So I did it - I bought a PS4 Pro. I actually bought it like two weeks ago, but wanted to sell my old PS4 first. So it's been sitting in my closet while I await the final payment from my buyer. It's weird - I only wanted a PS4 Pro its ...

 
 
 
 

Cblogs of 4/29/18 & 5/6/18 + Manatees

Cblogs of 5/2/2018 - Moonrise Underwalk

Happy May, everyone! I can't believe the year is a third over already. Crazy, right? I haven’t played much this year, don't think any new releases, but I've put some time into Sunset Overdrive. The 2014 cult hit still plays grea...

Cblogs of 4/22/14 + Fun with stock photos

Normally I'd write something here based on one of the blogs I recapped, or maybe just a general musing on life. But man, I don't have it in me today. It's Monday, I'm stuck at work, and I've got about a billion things I could be doing...

 
 
 
 

Cblogs of 4/18/2018 - Everspacing Out

CBlog Recaps of 04/17/2018 - Dragon Rising

LaTerry, can a Recap/-ism satisfy a Band of Bloggers entry? If so, "Talk about dragons, Larx. You know you want to. ♪" You got it, mister. Time to discuss...DRAGONS. I mean, I grew up as a tyke watching a few dragons on the TV, for ...

 
 
 
 

Cblogs of 4/15/14 + On being a gamer

Why are we afraid to be ourselves? Our truest, deepest selves, unfettered by the chains of society and expectations? I ask primarily because I'm a gamer. Obviously. I'm here at this gaming site, writing about games. I'm a staff member...

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.
