It seems that the massive tidal wave of change from Obama getting elected has affected our Cblog Header/Avatar pics and inserts. So not only do those who make under the 250g get a tax break and a pretty pink pony but you'll have to make do with my replacement Header/Avatar pics as well as old school titles. Seems our residential artist extraordinaire Ceark's images are AWOL for the time being. But fret not as this is merely a minor snafu that is being addressed as we speak.

So minor operation aside, what to talk about...Hmm, ah yes, I finally picked up Fallout 3 and I love it. I foresee myself sinking A LOT of time on the game.Also, Snaileb sighting!! He's back! Good to see the gent back here in Dtoid. And now to the recaps. Spoiler Alert: There were some awesome, quirky, strange and just plain fail blogs you may have missed. Let's take a look, shall we? Initiating OLD SCHOOL MODE in 3...2...1... GO!

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.
