Hello everyone! I've still been playing Dark Souls II. I've moved onto New Game+, and I really like what they're doing with New Games this time around. I'm having trouble with bosses that were a breeze the first time through the game, which I didn't really expect.

I started doing some co-op, now that I've beaten the game solo. Summoning is definitely a lot more reliable now, which is a huge relief! Even at a high soul level of 160, I'm still finding plenty of summon signs near bosses, and the connections almost always work out. I also haven't had too much trouble being summoned myself, although there are certain bosses where you'll have to stand around awhile before you find someone who needs your help.



I've only tried PvP a handful of time, and they always seem to be super quick duels, not lasting more than 10 seconds unless both players are being too careful. There's still some weird lag when it comes to attacks connecting though; I thought I was totally out of the way of other players' attacks sometimes, and yet they still managed to hit me.

In terms of multiplayer, I vastly prefer co-op, so I'll probably be doing that more than PvP anyway. Co-op play has worked seamlessly for me so far, so that makes me happy! I love being able to help out players who are having trouble with a boss that had previously given me a lot of frustration. It's a wonderful feeling!

In other news, Kill la Kill aired its final episode this week. It was an extremely satisfying anime, definitely one of my favorites! So many memorable characters, awesome music, ridiculously over-the-top action sequences... what a great show. I can't wait for an English translation, so I can spend more time looking at the animation and less time reading subtitles. Also, I hope Mako can get her own spin-off show someday; her and her family were so entertaining!

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.
