So I spent 8 hours today at a PC LAN party playing Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare with 7 other guys. It was freaking awesome. Me and this same group of close friends get together about once every 2 months to do this, and it's always lots of fun. There's nothing better then eating junk food, drinking beer, and blowing your friends away with shot guns and MK-47s while yelling obscenities at them. A great time was had by all.

I also want to say I had a great time last night with my fellow dtoiders playing Gears of War 2 for FNF. To be honest I suck at the multiplayer in that game, and typically get raped online when I try to play it. Because of this I usually don't enjoy myself when I play multiplayer, and hence don't go online much. I had an awesome time last night though playing with members of the Dtoid community though. It didn't matter that I sucked at the game, because everyone was having such a great time just screwing around and having fun.

Ok, now 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.
