Hey Everybody, I'm filling in for Silver Dragon's weekend caps. Hope you guys had a good weekend. I hid eggs with my family and we threw them at each other, cause you know that's what Jesus wanted.

So what games have I played since last time I recapped? I beat BioShock, I spent about 30 hours in Rapture cause I got almost everything. Thought the gameplay was very good, but I think the story was a little too in your face, and could have made better use of the underwater setting. I beat 3D Classics: Kirby's Adventure which was surprisingly amazing, the subtle 3D effects look so good. I beat Donkey Kong Country Returns which had some very creative level design. I 100% Skyward Sword, although I don't think the game is a perfect 10 I enjoyed most of it. My gripe with the game is it has too much fluff, the dozen fetch quest it forces you to do to progress the story just weren't fun, they were boring so I took a month break from the game. The sidequest however were really good, hence why I did all of them. In my opinion this game had some of the best boss fights in the series, specifically that golden 6 armed boss.They did a great job with the characters too. Peatrice in particular has become one of my favorite characters in the Zelda universe. Although I really liked it I understand why some people were disappointed by it.

Onto the caps, lots of good stuff. I'm happy these 10 things blogs are still booming.

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.
