Another week, another double dose of me all over your face! Big happenings this past week! Infinite Bits landed in Miami this past weekend and I hit it up on Saturday. I'm a bit disappointed that I couldn't make it on Friday to check out the Destructoid weird games panel. I had hoped that some of the crew would show on the following day so I could say hello, but the only person who appeared was Rey and I didn't want to interrupt him as he was busy filming and getting biznis done.

The rest of the show was pretty bitchin'. Ben Heck was there talking about his mad genius modding skills. Billy Mitchell was all smooth and shit. Egoraptor was Egoraptor, which is to say he was AWESOME! LIKE, OHMYGOD! HOTNESS! I WANNA BANG YOU! Finally, there was Doug Walker, a.k.a. The Nostalgia Critic. Cool guy. He's got a new video coming up and when it drops I'm gonna talk about it.

Of course, the big draw was the games. There was a slew of games spanning every console EVAR, but I found myself being drawn back to the big widescreen where a massive game of Saturn Bomberman was going down. Seriously, you guys, ten-player Bomberman is, like, the best game ever. No denyin'. I need to get myself a Saturn, a copy of that game, and nine other people. That stuff is dope.

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.
