Howdy y’all! So, Mr. Squid is feeling a bit under the weather tonight, so your resident DOMO-KUN loving, compulsive collecting, just generally funktastic recapper is stepping in tonight.

So, with everyone super busy, has anyone actually got to play games a lot lately? I know I haven’t been able to put in nearly as much time as I’ve liked, but here are some of my thoughts on what I’ve managed to squeeze in.

Modern Warfare 2 is hella sweet! I’ve managed to play through the single player and found the story to be really compelling, believable, and well written. It was pretty intense at the end too, as I literally thought the game “ended” like 5 times before I actually got to the end. Spec Ops was a nice addition as well, and I’ve managed to get 3 stars on all of them except for Snatch & Grab, which is one of the most bullshit things I’ve played. If anyone has actually beat that mission on Veteran, PLEASE tell me how to do it! As for multiplayer, the 34873487 things you can unlock are both really cool and lame, as it’s cool that there’s so much stuff, but for people like myself who try to unlock/max everything, it’s a pain in the ass.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days is quite the interesting game. If you’re a fan of Kingdom Hearts and actually followed the story in the other games, you’ll definitely like this one a lot more than the average person. While the gameplay is like the others in the series, the one thing I actually really like is the “panel” system of “leveling/upgrading” your character.

Also, with Christmas coming up, anyone who lives in the States and has access to great stores like Target or such, send me a private message or something, since you guys get these badass DOMO-KUNs! ^_^ Onto the recaps!

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.
