Firstly, I would like to give a big ‘Thank You’ to Silverdragon1979 for doing the weekend recaps. You’re awesome doing this every week and I would like to salute you for it.

This past week I’ve been playing a lot of Killzone 2. I just unlocked the Scout so I have been having some fun with that.

In other news, some dick on Goozex is trying to get me banned for accidentally sending him Harvest Moon A Wonderful Life instead of Another Wonderful Life. Apparently a simple mistake on my part, and failing to give in to his blackmailing, equates a banning in his mind. Apparently I made his little girl cry because she got the wrong Harvest Moon and wasted 200 of Daddy's points. Hopefully that all turns out okay and I just get the negative feedback instead of losing my account and all that credit I have built up.

I also finished Dante’s Inferno and started playing it a second time. It’s an awesome game and I can’t stop thinking about it.

With that I'll leave you to 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.
