So while everyone was off getting swine flu at PAX I was in Belgium hanging out at EuroNARP 2. Here's a little list of some of my favourite moments from that weekend.

1) Saturday night with Erotic Nerd playing Uncharted with everyone else in the room taking the piss out of the game.
2) Saturday afternoon playing SSF2THDR, T.Hawk FTW.
3) Friday afternoon when Mistic nearly broke my foot on the trampoline.
4) Friday night setting some epic Duck Hunt scores.
5) Goldeneye matches on the Licence to Kill setting. Where every slap is a kill.

However the weekend wasn't perfect because of one simple thing.

MISTIC'S FECKING DREAMCAST DIDN'T WORK.

Actually that's unfair, it did work. For about 20 minutes.

Anyway I think I'll mention my major Dreamcast memory as I'm unlikely to whack up a full c-blog of my tributes. On my 18th birthday I got one present. It was an ugly brown box off ebay but it contained my first Dreamcast along with several games, 2 controllers, a VMU and a lightgun. To this day that lightgun has gotten more use in my 2 years with it than most arcade lightguns get in a lifetime. House of the Dead 2 is the reason for that.

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.
