More from me:

New game season seems to be upon us. I've not touched any of them. In fact, Mega Man 9 may well be the last new game I buy this year. Its not that I don't want to play Fallout 3 or Saints Row 2, its that sixty dollars is a lot to pay for a video game. Think about all the things that money can buy. According to the news, this year we should all be worried about saving money. Then think about the used games industry and how I can purchase at least two maybe three of last years best games for that same price. At the very least, I plan on picking up The Evil Overlord and Lost Odyssey. Those two look good for 20 bucks. I might even pick up one Rainbow Six Vegas. I saw it for fifteen at blockbuster and considered it.

I just feel like I'm out of the loop. Everyone is in betas or playing these new games, I feel left out. Mega Man 9 and Castle Crashers feel more like my kind of games anyway. If not for their cheap price or old school gameplay. The only thing that bothers me is the digital distribution. I can't loan out Castle Crashers or Mega Man 9 to anyone.

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.
