I was just walked in on by a friend of mine while I was finishing the recaps in the nude. Embarrassing, right?

Weirdness aside, let's get to the recaps. Tonight we have the return of my favorite blog series, nostalgia out the ass, and, of course, some stupid failures.



*- Holy shit this blog is fantastic. Occam's electric toothbrush goes face to face with a vicious monster.

*- 8bit Coder talks about where morality lies in the future of gaming.

*- OH SWEET LORD LOOK AT THIS DOUBLE DOWN.

*- This is why I love this community; de BLOO's first NARP experience.

*- megaStryke comes back in epic fashion with this week's Off-Brand Game Crusader of Centy.

*- In this exciting MAG impressions blog, Enkido learns about the great US government.

*- If you have a DS, you must get this game, according to Dexter345's fantastic blog.

*- Oh nostalgia. Come and enjoy this great write-up about River City Ransom by randombullseye.

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.
