So this weekend is Gay Pride weekend for my city, and there's going to be a parade tomorrow morning right outside my apartment. I'm pretty excited about it, it should be a lot of fun. But because it's in the morning, I'd like to get some sleep while I can, so these -isms are gonna be a bit short.



This week I played Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom (finally!) and it was a really cute game! I was initially a little put off by the Majin's voice, but I quickly fell in love with it as the game progressed. He's just way too adorable (although he tends to trip over himself entirely too often). I'm not sure I'd recommend the game for everyone, but I really enjoyed my time with it nonetheless. It was clear to me that a lot of heart was put into making the game, and I appreciated that.

I also finally subscribed to PS Plus (it's about time, right?). I played The Cave and Machinarium for free this week, two more really cute games. I like cute things, you see. I've also got access to XCOM: Enemy Unkown, Uncharted 3, Saints Row the Third, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution, among other games, all for FREE! I'm wondering which one I should play first. I'm thinking I might try out XCOM first, even though I'm not too big on strategy games. It just looks really cool.

Anyway, my bed is calling for me. Happy Gay Pride month, everyone! :)

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.
