Tomorrow is my 32nd birthday, and I have to say that I'm a little sad to leave 31 behind. It was easily one of the best ages of my life. I got married, visited St. Croix and Costa Rica, saw tons of friends and family, sold my house old house, and bought a brand new one all in the span of one year. Yeah, there was some shitty stuff thrown in there as well, but the majority of the year was awesome. It will be an age that's hard to top as I get older. For now, on the evening of the final day of being 31, I just want to remember all the awesome memories I have of it.

So this week I've been playing Uncharted 3. I haven't gotten very far in it though because I've spent most of my spare time painting my house, trying to get it ready for a bit housewarming / birthday party my wife and I are throwing next weekend. I'm only about 3 hours into the game right now, and I must say that it doesn't start as fast and furious as I was hoping. It's kind of been a little slow and I'm a little bit disappointed by that fact. I'm waiting for it to get as epic as everyone says it is.

Before I get to the recaps, I just want to mention that my college team, the NC State Wolfpack, beat our in-state rival, the UNC Tar holes, in football this weekend for the 5th straight year in a row. We actually completely shut them out, not letting them score a single point. Since they were favored to beat us, it was a wonderful surprise to kick their ass instead. which has made my entire weekend great!

Now let's get on with the recaps shall we.

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.
