Hello fellow Dtoiders I will be filling in for ManChild today. I recently got my Link Figure and it's amazing, Figma makes my favorite posable toys and I'm so happy Nintendo is finally getting some proper figures made of their franchises, I already have the Samus, and plan on getting Pit, I even have a Layton Revoltech even though he's technically a Level 5 character. So close to being able to recreate Smash in figure form.

I finally got around to beating Resident Evil 5 today, and I'm a bit mixed. On one hand it's inferior to Resident Evil 4 in every way, it's not even a little scary, a lot of the boss fights are lame, and some levels dragged on. On the other it's a really good local co-op game. It's some of the most fun I ever had with a local co-op game. What sets this game apart from most other co-op games is that you have to constantly work together by trading ammo/supplies back and forth, saving your partner, and building strategies together such as one player becoming bait and the other sneaking up on the enemy. Most co-op games are really about playing the game about the same time and competing over who gets the higher score and more kill. this game is more about surviving together and cooperating which was really fun when it came together. If I had played this game Solo with the computer AI I probably would not have liked it very much. It's a shame so many people are saying that 6 wasn't very good, as I adore 4 and thought that 5 was some decent fun. I'm definitely going to have to check out Revelations on 3DS.

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.
