So am I the only community member who plans on picking up a copy of Ghostbusters this week when it's released on XBOX360 and PS3? Come one, I know I'm not the only person here who thinks that "bustin' makes me feel good". There have to be some other people who have always wanted to strap a nuclear accelerator to their back, right? If you are one of these people let me know, because I really want to play some co-op in this game. If you plan on picking up Ghostbusters this week, and want to hook up for some 4 player co-op ghost bustin' action, please let me know. Also, let me know which version of the game you are buying, the XBOX360 or the PS3 version. I'm still unsure which version to get, and I'll probably get the one that will give me the best chance to play with other dtoid members.

There was was a lot of really good blogs posted today, so check out the TopSauce section for my huge list of recommended reads. Ok, now let's get on with the Sunday Cblog recaps ....

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.
