I would just like to say today has been the greatest day anyone has ever had. First I got a depressing letter from AOL saying that I somehow owe them 60. Then I went further into the mail to find a package from someone called Yanier. Is there anyone else here who gets caught for a second when someone refers to Niero by his real name? Anyway inside the package was my Become shirt (#223 bitches) which I naturally put on immediately. Then I go into town and buy season 1 of 30 Rock having thought about it for some time. So I then spend the rest of the day watching that. I also got an email from Sony with a handy MAG beta code. Then I got an email from Hamza with a nice fresh Uncharted 2 beta code. And now as I'm writing this I have Demetri Martin's Person special on TV. Then there's all the time I've spent today playing NHL10. Awesome moments where my Be a Pro player (N. Sykora naturally) wins games through an awesome pass or a blistering/lucky shot. SPORTS!!

Oh yeah, and I have cake too. Good cake, the kind you need a fork for.

Also, brilliant blogging today ladies and gentlemen. Loads to enjoy here.

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.
