Hello there! Today was spent playing video games. Also spent some time today working on my very own video game. Perhaps you've heard the legend of Bonerquest? I can't seriously believe that I've nearly finished it. That I'm so close, that I've actually ahd people try it out and givem e feedback on it. Oh what I wouldn't do to hear from everyone who ever was to try it out. But enough Narcisism, lets have some RECAPS. Hooray for recaps. Everyone loves a good weekend recap and this saturday, we even had a contest post. I can't believe it.


I pick Chad on that GameTV show. Even though I've yet ot watch it, Chad Concelmo is amazing.



A- Something about World of Warcraft fetish.M- A monthly musing with the word Genocide in the title.
M- Monthly Musing about controllers.

V- Chad Concelmo appears on gamehead. Well they don't call it gamehead anymore, but its the same show basicly. Friday nights on the "guys channel" they have a video game show based off this website. Anyway, Chad appeared and he's awesome. Memory card: That time Chad appeared on that TV show.


S- Metal gear? And a short blog about it?
S- Something about wanting gamers to go into politics, I think. Comparisons to the Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic were mentioned.

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.
