Hello friends! How's everyone doing this week? My week has been pretty lame... haven't had much time for video games lately because I've been worrying about real life stuff, like working, looking for a new apartment, waiting to hear back about a possible new job, etc. Finding a new place to live is hard! And so is finding a new job! I just wish everything could be settled already so I could stop worrying about it. Luckily, I'm going on vacation in two weeks, so that will be nice. It's really hard to worry about things when you're relaxing on the beach!

Another reason I haven't been playing many games is because there haven't been very many exciting releases lately... I've been waiting for Spelunky to finally release on PSN, because then I'll always have something to play when I have nothing else to play. They announced a PC release date for next month, but no date for PS3/Vita. Oh well, I guess it's just been a slow summer. I'll just keep biding my time with Persona 4 Arena (I recently reached rank B in online matches! Woo!)

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.
