So, a lot of people are pretty against me getting the Destructoid tattoo. Well, I just wanted to take time out to defend myself. Here's what I wrote in the forums:

Since a lot have asked me about this, yes, I'm 150% sure. Before Dtoid, I never really had a place to talk about games; I never had any real gamer friends, and every other community I was a part of felt rather lifeless and troll-filled. Through Dtoid, I've met some amazing fucking people, gotten the opportunity to do things I'd never think to do before, and write about something I'm passionate about. Though most of you might think this is a fucking terrible idea, I have so much love for this site and the things it's given me that I can't think of anything better to do than get this tattoo. The fact that you, the community, are helping me make/choose it makes the tattoo that much more special.

So, call me stupid if you want. I'll just be here in the corner with an amazing fucking tattoo.

Also, if you love horror movies, PLEASE click the first link in the Topsauce blogs. You won’t be disappointed.

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.
