So I finally unwrapped my 9 month old copy of Resistance 2, and started playing it for the first time this weekend. I have to tell you, after playing other great games like Killzone 2 and Gears of War 2, this game just does not cut it. I'm almost completely done with the single player campaign and I have not been impressed at all so far. The graphics are sub-par, the story is completely contrived, and the action is very cookie cutter.

You need to understand that I loved the first Resistance: Fall of Man, so I had my hopes high for this sequel. So far those hopes have only been crushed. Now I haven't played the multiplayer yet, and I've heard good things about it, but the single player campaign is just crap. This makes the 2nd game in a row that I have been disappointed with. First there was MadWorld last week, and now Resistance 2 this week. What the hell is going on here?

Besides these crappy games, I have some pretty stressful stuff going on in my personal life right now. All in all, I have to say the last week was pretty shitty for me. I'm hoping things make a turn for the better soon, but right now I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. Anyways, I'm not going to bore you with the details of my personal life, and there are much more important things to talk about, like the 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.
