Well would you look at that? I got my recaps in on time for once!

What's new with everyone? Same old' same ol' here. Bravely Default, Spelunky, Ass Creed and now DOTA 2 and Octodad! I'm not sure what it is about DOTA but all of sudden I'm actually enjoying it and having fun instead of just getting cranky.

Then there's Octodad. That game is just delightful and silly. Nothing quite like playing as an octopus in a suit going grocery shopping. The devs also placed a lot of little easter eggs referencing other small studios and games and it's amazing. Go play Octodad as soon as you can!

I'm really getting into Bravely Default now as well. I haven't been this into a traditional RPG since probably Ni No Kuni or the OG Golden Sun! The story is compelling and the battle system is a lot of fun and provides for a lot of in depth and interesting strategies. So far my only complaint is the voice acting is bad anime dub quality for the majority of characters. Look for a new episode of Pocketoid in a couple weeks where Jordan and I will both be reviewing the game!

Have a great week everyone! Crackity loves you!

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.
