Say randombullseye, you've not been writing about old school games lately have you? I've been working on a couple actually. The problem is, I'm replaying those games and they're not exactly short games. Castlevania 2, Dragon Warrior 2, and a couple others are getting write ups. I'm also still looking for that Colecovision I had as a kid. Any of you guys ever play that thing? Zaxxon, Donkey Kong, Mr. Do, Ladybug. And those are just the ones off the top of my head. Also my time usually spent towards writing is going towards a certain video game. I really would love to have a new blog to post everyday. That's my goal.

It has been over two weeks since my last blog post on my name and it was about Bonerquest.

On another note:
Anyone want me to write a review of Fallout 3? I'll only write it if you guys care to read it. Probably just be the same as my Mega Man 9 review where I talk about my experiences with the game and how I felt about it. So if you want to read that, tell me and I can put aside some time to write it.

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.
