Dag yo! So, you get a double dose of Recaps today! MR. SQUID wasn’t feeling too good yesterday, so he asked if a brotha could help anotha out, and I duly obliged. Still, yesterday night I went to a concert and it was hella sweet! The opening act (which I didn’t know until I got there, since it didn’t say on the ticket, nor on the web) was Steven Page, formerly of the group Barenaked Ladies. At first I thought he was going to suck, since pretty much no one knows about his solo stuff, but it was surprisingly good! Plus, he alternated between solo songs and songs from the old band, which he’s apparently allowed to sing. It was sweet and he’s a good showman. The main attraction though, of whom I was seeing for a second time, was the Goo Goo Dolls! They’ve been around for like ever, plus they just have countless (literally) hits! They rocked the house just like I did the last time I saw them like about 4 or 5 years ago! They performed some songs from their latest CD, Something for the Rest of Us, but they played the big ones like Name, Iris, Slide, etc. I was ecstatic they played Black Balloon this time, since they didn’t the last time. They also have good crowd banter and they ended the show with Broadway. So, besides that, I’ve been playing a lot of Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds on PS3, Call of Duty: Black Ops on Xbox 360, and a TON of Picross DS! What’s up with you folks?

So, this is probably one of the best DeviantArt DOMO-KUN finds I’ve every found . . .

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.
