I hope everyone has had a good Labor Day weekend so far, unless you are not American, in which case this was just another weekend. For those of you who are at PAX, I hope you all had a great time. I have to be honest and attest to the fact I hate all of you, but that's only because I'm jealous. I really wanted to go to PAX, but things just didn't work out. Instead I have enjoyed a nice relaxing weekend at home with my girlfriend.

Speaking of PAX, if you haven't checked out ScottyG's blog post with the video from Dtoid's PAX panel, you need to. The video captures the very end of the panel, at which time Chad and the rest of the Dtoid staff all sing a hilarious song they wrote themselves about the Dtoid community. You seriously have to watch this. I was pretty excited because I was actually mentioned in the song. Not sure how I managed that one, but it's pretty damn awesome. Qalamari and ScottyG were also mentioned.

In other gaming related news, I am finally getting around to playing Uncharted on the PS3. I can't believe it took me this long, but it was well worth the wait. I absolutely love it. It has it's flaws, but it's easy to forget them since there are so many things the game does right. I'll talk more about this after I've beaten the game, but for now just know that I'm playing it and I love it.

Well it's time to get to the recaps, so let's get this show on the road ....

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.
