I would like to begin tonight's recap by first thanking Garison for covering for me on yesterday's recap. That was the first time I have ever asked for someone to take over my spot, and I honestly felt bad. I probably shouldn't, since I have definitely covered for other people close to 15 times, but I still do anyways. Thanks Garison! You are full of awesome!

Just so you all know, I am very addicted to Killzone 2's multiplayer. As much as I like it though, I do have quite a lot of issues with it. The fact you don't get access to all the classes in the beginning of the game, really causes some major balance issues in my opinion. A team full of higher ranked members, who have all the class abilities to choose from, can basically decimate a team with lower ranked individuals who have no class abilities. This obviously won't be a problem eventually, once everyone ranks up, but right now it causes me some headaches. Maybe I'm just too used to playing Team Fortress 2, where you can pick from every class from the get go. Anyways, that's my only major problem with the multiplayer so far. I have several smaller complaints, but nothing worth boring you with here.

Let's get to the recaps shall we ....

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.
