One of the things that hurts me is how little time I have to play Atlantica Online, that turn based MMORPG that its makers are very proud of. I love the game and I really enjoy my time spent playing it but whenever I'm on the computer in this house that has Atlantica on it I either a) start up a torrent, b) fap or c) end up playing Guild Wars or Perfect World. Why can't I fire up a genuinely fun and enjoyable MMO instead of my old habit (GW) or the inexplicably hooking Perfect World?

While on the subject of free MMOs, I got into the beta for the Football MMO Football Superstars recently and I plan on getting some game time in on that tomorrow. I reckon it'll be interesting to see how something as active as a sport can translate to MMOs.

Space Giraffe is coming out on PC next week. GIVE JEFF MINTER YOUR MONEY!

Also to finish on, a gentleman I know has been banned from the audience of Deal or No Deal because of his hobby tracking game stats. Its not really videogame related, but I think its very interesting that someone who gets a kick out of statistics could be banned from a TV show rich with stats because of it.

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.
