Unfortunately Randombullseye was tied up tonight and could not do the Sunday night Cblog Recaps, so I have stepped in to fill his shoes. This is my 4th time doing the recaps in the last 6 days. Hopefully you guys have enjoyed my time here this week as a reservist. I'm not sure when I'll return, but you can bet it will probably be sooner then later. ;-)

So today was a crappy day! First of all I never got to play any games at all today because I woke up and cleaned my entire house with my girlfriend for 7 hours straight. That sucked, but at least my entire house is clean now! Then I had a bunch of people over to watch the Carolina Panthers take on the New York Giants for the #1 position in the NFC, and the Panthers lost. Seeing that I'm a Panthers fan, that was shitty way to end my night. Oh well, at least Christmas is only 4 days away. I'm hoping to get a new iPod to replace the one I had stolen 2 weeks ago. What are all you guys asking for from Santa this Christmas?

Well time to get to the recaps .... but first here's you 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.
