Phew! Busy day! I'm glad that's over! I think I deserve a Twix chocolate bar. It's two for me and fuck you!

Anyway, I had mentioned this last week but there was a NARP this past weekend over at nademagnet's pad up in Orlando. Nice dude. Splendid host. Let me crash on his couch. We had a projector running with games of Street Fighter IV and Batman Akham Asylum, there was an SSBB throwdown, and I even gave it my all to run through Mega Man 9 in a single sitting. Couldn't do it. Wily handed me my ass on a platter and I was too stupid to stock up on E Tanks before entering the castle. That fucker. He doesn't get laid, you know that? Why else would he be fucking with me year after year?

I think the best part of the night was my Bacon Explosion! It was my first time preparing the meal, but it turned out not bad at all. People were talking about it! They gave me my props! I'm pleased that you have clogged your arteries on my cuisine! Man, that stuff was heavy! We sliced the bastard up and ate them on Pillsbury biscuits! Heaven!

So, again, thanks to nademagnet for opening his doors to everyone.

Now, on to the final order of business this evening: Hironobu Kageyama of Dragon Ball Z fame singing Ken's theme from Street Fighter II!

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.
