Hello everyone!

I just beat Little Inferno a few minutes ago, which I bought yesterday after it went on sale on Steam. What an intriguing little game. You basically just burn stuff, and then buy more stuff, and then burn that stuff, and it's surprisingly addicting! Not to mention the story is very bizarre, and somehow charming and creepy at the same time. I'm also really digging this song right now. I'm not sure that I'd recommend it for everyone, but if you enjoyed the type of humor from World of Goo or you've got some money to spare (it's $4 right now, which I'd say is perfect for this game), then you should consider checking it out. At the very least, it's a game that's unlike anything you've played before.



Meanwhile, I bought Bit.Trip Runner 2 last week, I'm still making my way through Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, and a co-worker of mine let me borrow his copy of Tomb Raider. So it looks like I'll be juggling my time between those three games for awhile! I'd like to finish Nocturne before moving on to the other two, but it's a looong game. I should be nearing the end though, I think... but who knows. Gotta catch all those demons!

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.
