Hope you all had a good Valentine's Day Weekend. I know I did. Wanna know why? Cause my date was Kevin fucking Spacey.



I can't get over how good House of Cards is. I love it, and normally I detest political dramas. Never liked The West Wing, loathed Commander in Chief, and utterly abhorred Franklin & Bash.



But House of Cards man. Maybe it's that Breaking Bad has given me a taste for a good anti-hero, and I mean a GOOD anti-hero. Piss off Low Winter Sun.



I'm only halfway through the new season and I can't believe all that has happened. My roommates are just now at the end of the first season and the difference between where I am and where they are would have been three seasons worth of plot developments on any other show. It's dense, it's fairly fucked up, and Spacey pretty much does the best southern accent ever. I love it.





* - Never seen a blog done in Spanish before so I'm just gonna assume it's fantastic.

* - I'm a sucker for a good rant about MS



A - Some MvC3 endings that would be delightful

A - All the Lone Survivor Feels.

S - The Devastation Continues...

R - struggles



S - Love ain't in the air when it comes to video spam.

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.
