Custom artwork by Mikey, just another of the great benefits of being a member of Dtoid UK! Also yes I do actually own that hoodie. I post this partly because it's FREAKING AWESOME and also because the closest thing I've come to playing a game this last week has been dicking about (not literally, not yet anyway) in Second Life. I know, I'm kinda ashamed of it too. Turns out that....thing is a lot more bearable if you have something of a tour guide though. I'm not quite comfortable enough to go in there alone yet though. Last time I was left alone I nearly got raped by a rabbit.

Oh yeah, if you want to see the other Dtoid UK peeps Mikey's drawn (he's doing one everyday) then look at the gallery of them here. Currently featuring Halfleft, Darkandroid, Nikmunroe, n0brein, Gemsi, ThePhil, Anus McPhanus, Young Scot and myself. Until tomorrow when he adds another one. I think it's Malcor next.

Also if you like the idea of dungeon crawlers but hate their horrific learning curve then I recommend a little indie game that got an excellent update recently called Desktop Dungeons. It's basically a full roguelike where games can be completed within 5-10 minutes. Also try Spelunky if you haven't already, because it's fucking Spelunky.

I'm really freaking tired as well, so please bear that in mind reading these.

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.
