So I spent all day Saturday at a Modern Warfare 2 LAN party. It was pretty disappointing considering Infinity Ward has disabled the ability to gain experience during LAN play. Absolutely nothing you do counts toward advancing your character. It's extremely annoying and it completely ruined the game for all of us. We attempted to go online, but getting all 9 people online from one location was not the easiest thing in the world. Suffice to say, MW2's LAN capability is complete crap and will probably make it a game that is never played at LAN parties.

Honestly, Modern Warfare 2 is about the only thing I've played the last week. I finally beat the single player, and that was some completely over-the-top shit. Did anyone else get completely confused as to what was going on plat wise those last 3-4 missions. I was having no problems following the story up to that point, and then the game just lost me. I personally think the ending to Modern Warfare 1 was much much better.

I'm just really looking forward to the Thanksgiving holiday this coming weekend. I'm gonna use the time to catch up on some other gaming, which includes DJ Hero, Brutal Legend, Batman: AA, and probably New Super Mario Bros Wii. Trust me when I say that Wednesday night can't get here soon enough.

Well that's enough about me. Let's get on with the weekend cblog recaps shall we.

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.
