Hey, everyone, how was your week? Mine was pretty cool, I didn't play much games, but my girlfriend came back from Ireland so I'm pretty much happy.

More World Cup news. After an abysmal display, England are out of the World Cup. I will say that it is a travesty that Lampard's goal was disallowed, but it still probably wouldn't have made too much of a difference. Oh well. Cue 40 years of "The Stolen Goal Scandal".

There were two games yesterday, Holland vs Brazil, and Uruguay vs Ghana. I personally found Holland vs Brazil a bit boring, but it was good to see somebody beat Brazil at last. Uruguay vs Ghana was just spectacular. It had everything really - goals, saves, handballs and penalties. It was sad to see Ghana go out but they had a really good chance to win the game which they sadly failed to take.

Today's videos are something that I found through RiotMonster. I assume that a few of you will already be familiar with these videos, but they are very funny. [EDIT: For some reason, it won't let me embed the video. Have a link instead.

Finally, today was a pretty bog-standard day for the blogs. Good Topsauces, a ton of Wordtoid, and unfunny fails. Enjoy.

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.
