Just have a few things to say, I'll try to keep it short though. Finished Mass Effect 1 and 2 over the past 2 weeks. Those games are awesome, where were they all my life. I played through Paragon as Female Shepard(I heard a bunch about how people like her voice actor and shit) and I fucked Kaiden in mass effect 1. In 2, I "kept with" Kaiden (even though he kinda blew me off for working with Cerberus) and didn't pursue another relationship. Wrex and Grunt are awesome characters, it was cool to see them both talk. Saved everyone at the end. For some reason I had no drive to complete any of the side missions in Mass Effect 2 ATM. I just sicked with all the story missions (dossiers and loyalty missions for the most part). I might do the side missions later, maybe a little before Mass Effect 3 comes out(and I'll totally get that).

I just got Fallout 3 and Darksiders. I haven't played the second, but I've been dicking around in the first one. I'll probably continue seriously on my way, but It's so hard to not save, dick around/cause mayham, and then reload. Especially when you consider the Developer console.

I tried out the Starcraft 2 demo. While I easily beat the story missions on normal, when I did a quick skirmish against a normal computer I totally got steamrolled. Reminds me why I should never play a RTS, but I wish I was good at them.

If you are wondering how I found the time to play all these videogames, well here is the story. I was sick over the last week and this week was spring break. I have work tomorrow (blach) and school soon so that's kinda a bummer but whateves. Anyway, enough of my flipping life, here are the recaps.

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.
