I hope everyone is fat and happy! I know I am! I made sure I was ready by doing my exercise routine before the meal was served. Nothing builds an appetite quite like working up a sweat!

I had promised my mother that I would join her in visiting Toys "R" Us for the midnight sale. I thought it would be fun, but waiting in that long-ass line was not fun. There was another line just to check out of the store. And you could just feel a chill in the air, that some disgruntled shopper could snap at any moment. That's why I don't do the Black Friday shit. This was a one-off, mom.

For all the bitching and moaning I do, I am so thankful for what I've got. I love my family. I love feeling needed and appreciated. I just love the simple things. A bunch of you have stuff you are grateful for and decided to share them with us today. Some cbloggers had a lot to say, while some just had quick holiday wishes. Today was a special day, so no matter how short your post was, no one got failed.

Drive-by wishes from Klipsched.
Cowzilla is thankful for the recap team and a whole bunch of other people and things of lesser importance.
pendelton celebrates a very Fallout Thanksgiving.
Sadistic actually remembers The Critic.
RoG from I-Mockery provides a Duck Hunt-themed video.
Eaten by a Grue is not thankful for a couple of things.
Pixelated Lilac has dance fever.

StRAWRberree is employed. That's something to really be thankful for these days.
EternalDeathSlayer is thankful for stuff.

We've got a long month ahead of us. Let's keep our spirits up. Hey, at least you weren't forced to eat tofu turkey:

*- Stevil is really, really, really pumped for Rainy Woods... I mean Deadly Premonition.

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.
