Hey guys! It's another week, and another recap with me! Did you miss me? Sorry about that, I had some technical difficulties while house sitting one week, was busy last week. But I'd like to give SrChurros a shout out for covering for me last minute when I realized my predicament that first week. You are a bro!

So...House-sitting! It was pretty okay! I played a bunch of Monster Hunter, ate their food and DIDN'T set ANYTHING on fire. Not even once! Especially not those paper napkins when I was figuring out the gas stove. That definitely NEVER happened. And if it ever did happen I would like to point out they would have been immediately put out after a brief millisecond of thinking "Goddammit I actually did set a fire". So everything is fine, and will always be fine.

Anyway! I've been doing pretty swell. Started a employment program this week. I get paid during it and the goal is to have a permanent job by the end of it. Just finished the last orientation day, and on Monday I'll be working at the local sorting facility for Goodwill. So here's hoping this leads to better things, and helps me "get back out there" or whatever that means!

Anyway, enough about me. There's cblogs to recap!

* - We get a touching tale of friendship and comradery from davidjenkins. Why hunt alone when you can hunt together?



R - Xeo gives us the lowdown on what he thinks the the new Secret of Mana remake. Is it good enough to satisfy his fanboy heart?

T - MountainBlade cleaves right to the point on his thoughts on brand recognition in the gaming industry. Short, sweet and to the point definitely give it a read.

T - Here we got a quick blurb from IloveMGS about the TF2 Jungle Inferno update. If you're still playing, be sure to give a read!

F - Wanna get a quick rundown on Triggers new mech anime, Darling in the Franxx? JuIc3 has the goods! PersonallY also like it alot, but be sure to check out what he thinks!



Alright that's it for me! I hope you guys have a great weekend!

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.
