Hey there peo-ple. Welcome to your Tuesday morning Monday Recaps! I missed last week, as I was a bit tired of looking at my monitor. Putting the finishing touches on this thing took some time and eyeballs. It was worth it, though!

This week there's been less of that, so I actually got to play some videogames, whatever those are. My 360 won't read discs, but luckily I grabbed a bunch of digital holiday sales! The Walking Dead, for instance. I'm playing through episode 1 & 2 again, because I already had those on PS3. Can't wait to again feel like shit in episode 3!
I also got other stuff. Rock of Ages is another. Awesomely strange. Good mix-up of tower defense. -SF3:3SOE, I'm getting back in the saddle. Being able to play it online again really accelerates that. -VF5: Icantrememberthesubtitle. I love VF5, okay? Best 3D fighting game ever.
I got stuff to play. As opposed to writing something substantial here.

So, yeah. I got words in here somewhere, but they're not coming out right. So I'll skip it. Let's get to the important stuff: CAPS.

Oh; one more thing. Chespin is the shit. Look at him. He obviously skinned another Pokemon, and is wearing it. He's a bad motherfucker. Best starter ever.

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.
