God dammit, you assholes. Thanks for making me recap all of your pandering to our one and only Queen Tyra.

I did a stupid, stupid thing yesterday. Since I have no XBL connection at my house (long story), I decided to take my hard drive over to a friend's house yesterday and download some stuff on it. Well, I was able to download the license to get songs from RB onto RB2, and Castlevania: SOTN, which I'd never played, but heard people rant and rave about. After a bit of gaming there, I came home, excited to try out SOTN. As it turns out, I can only play Castlevania on my friend's 360 with my hard drive attatched, but not on my own. This. Is. Bullshit. Does anyone know if I'm stuck like this, or can I re-download it once I get to a stable connection?

Anyway, as you all know, today was TYRA TUESDAY. And yes, I did fucking recap all of that shit. Sure, I thought it was damn, damn funny (the Cblog equivalent of watching Leprachaun), but recapping all of it is a pain in the ass. Thankfully, we also had some news about the demise of EGM, an amazing piece from Necros, and someone finally kicking the WoW habit cold turkey.

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.
