BURGANDISMS
It is I, your friendly neighborhood Mr. Burgandy, filling in for njsykora tonight. He has to pull an all nighter at work (sucks for him). So all of you are stuck with me tonight. This also marks my debut post as a backup recapper (yay). So sit down, shut up, and enjoy.


*-dTunes #33, featuring One Day as a Lion. Why is this top sauce? BECAUSE I SAID SO BITCH!

T- Or play with with people from Destructoid. It's just like having real friends, except you still get to experience the crushing depression! Yay!

L- You know what they say about people who talk noise Jimbo, they get big dicks in their mouths when they sleep. Wait, that's not it......
R- The Weinercast. To be honest, I have no idea what its' about, but I can't help thinking it has something to do with Mr. Sadistic.
L- I'm so getting this.
R- When did you leave in the first place?
R- Real gamers use their genitalia to play games while reading a magazine.
R- Wow PAL NES cartridges are ugly.

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.
