Unfortunately RandomBullsEye could not be here tonight to bring you his usual installment of the Cblog Recaps, so I have been tasked with taking over his duties. Dont worry he has a great excuse. He is working on finishing up the first build of Bonerquest, which I personally cant wait to play. This is my 3rd time this week filling in for someone else, so dont worry you are in good hands. ;-)

Today my girlfriend and I celebrated Christmas together and opened gifts. We are both huge fans of our college basketball team, the North Carolina State Wolfpack, and the last couple of years we have gone to every single home game together. Well for Christmas she took tons of pictures of us from the basketball games we have been to, and made a huge collage and framed it. I absolutely love it so much I decided I had to immediately hang it on the wall. Well as I was hanging it on the wall it fell, and smashed into hundreds of pieces. Suffice to say, I am a complete idiot. Luckily she should be able to buy a new frame and fix it. Its a good thing because its honestly one of the best and most thoughtful gifts I have ever received for Christmas.

Ok thats enough about me . Lets get to the Recaps . But first heres your daily dragon picture

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.
