Yo nerds! You ready to have some sticky wet recaps popped in your ass? GOOD!

So my PS3 died. That was a lovely shit surprise. Hopefully getting it fixed this week so I can continue my pirating adventures in Assassin's Creed IV. In the mean time I've just been playing a ton of LoZ: Link Between Worlds and Spelunky. I'm looking forward to the Playstation 14 sale tomorrow, I wanna get peace Walker and play through it before Ground Zeroes comes out.

I've also been watching Space Dandy. At first I was a little iffy on it but the second episode sold me on it. I just wish it had a bit more of those super badass choreographed fight sequences. If you haven't seen it yet I highly recommend checking it out.

Lately I've been wanting to buy a new board game and I got a $50 Amazon gift card for Christmas. I've narrowed it down to King of Tokyo (going to play it at game night at the bar tonight) and Eldritch Horror (haven't played it but I have played Arkham Horror). Have any of you played either of these games before?

I'd love to talk more nerdy junk but I've got a lot of real life dumb adult things to do today so I should wrap this up. Hope you guys have a fantastic week! I know I'm going to!

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.
