Hello once again my lovely Dtoiders! I knew you all couldn't get enough of me over the holidays, so here I am with a slightly belated Friday recap. :D

Why is this belated you ask? Well, for starters I was a bit sick last night. After a nap, despite still being sick, I thought it would be a good idea to play some Team Fortress 2 (try the free weekend! :D :D :D) to see the Demo/Soldier updates. 5 hours later, I realized I was a bit too out of it for the recaps. So here I am, watching Futurama commentaries and doing the recaps.

As someone who has played TF2 regularly for most of the 2+ years it's been out, you might be wondering what I think of the update. My initial impression is that it definitely changes up the way the characters are played. Losing the shotgun really cripples the soldier, but as a lone wolf reducing splash damage and having a potentially devastating melee attack (seriously... holy shit the Equalizer is powerful) make up for it. For the more group focused player the Buff Banner looks like it could be as good as a Kruber. For Demo the Targe and Eyelander really have made it into a different character. Haven't really seen enough of the Scottish Resistance, but even with the "slower" priming rate the idea of what looks like a pure upgrade for stickies still worries me.

Anyways, enough of that I'm going to wrap this up so I can fail at drawing and watch Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland. Happy holidays everybody! <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.
