Just when you've thought it's safe to relax, along comes a surprise ScottyGasm to the face!

As always, hello my lovely Dtoiders! At the moment I'm exhausted and eating hot dogs (which are a nice comfort food for me). Back on the unemployment line after my temporary job ended today, which is a shame but at least I'll be able to focus on a less temporary thing to do with my life. Or... just play video games until I realize I'm almost broke and take the first job that'll hire me. Either way really.

Speaking of gaming though, things have been good. Beat ODST, which I mostly liked. Frankly didn't dig the story or any of the main characters, none of whom were memorable or even really all that likable. It's a real shame the good story was all within the audio logs, which did something interesting and unique without really interfering with a fairly well defined period in the Halo universe... On top of that I took advantage of a used game sale and picked up Arkham Asylum, Raiden Fighters Aces, Prince of Persia, and Tomb Raider Anniversary for $60, less than the price of Arkham Asylum brand new. Go me! Plan on digging into those soon. ^_^

Um, I was going to also talk about the latest Dtoid/Reddit spat, but I honestly can't be bothered. There are people who would be more than willing to argue with me and they care a lot more than I do. I will however ask that if someone could give me a legitimate reason why Reddit and Digg exist I would appreciate it. <3

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.
