So folks, I've been around these parts for a little over a year now.  You all have been stuck with me for a whole year.  Let that sink in for a bit.........ok has it sunk in?  Anyway congratulations on surviving this early access version of Dere.  You now get the full version.

You may be thinking it's been longer than that and you're kind of right.  A few months before I joined I creeped and punned from a distance, but rest assured I was watching you all, all creepy, breathing over your shoulders, smelling your hair.  It's my thing.  But then starting in December you got the full frontal version of me when I joined. Lucky you!

So now that my first year is done here, thanks to all for making me feel welcome.  I look forward to this upcoming year of talking about games and toilets and how horrible Torch is at picking waifus.  It's going to be a hell of a ride folks.

* - Greenhornet214 gives a look at his top 10 Christmas movies. I have to say, this list is pretty spot on. The only thing it's missing is Diehard. Also, Christmas Vacation is so obviously the best Christmas movie every and that is verifiable fact. Well done Green Hornet, well done

S - Jetfandam continues his talks about fighting games, this time giving you some advice on how to pick your character. Jetfandam knows his fighters, so maybe you should listen peeps!

S - Flegma continues with his last blog in his series of looking back at old-school and retro games. It's been a fun ride Flegma. You keep being you friend

S - Boobs, sex, big boobs, sexy time...sorry, I hear fanfic and my mind wanders. Greenhornet214 gives us a look at his fanfic about the forerunners. I have to say, it's way better than Halo 4 and 5

T - Virtua Kizama gives us a list of fighting games coming up in 2018 to look forward to. I suck at fighting games, but Kazama has me even excited for what's upcoming

T - Michael Arrietta takes a look at what he thinks we're the best multiplayer experiences of 2017. If you're in to multiplayer games, check it out. Some good stuff

T - Taterchimp gives us the list of games and a quick review of the games he's finished from 2017. Taterchimp has been busy and he gives us some really nice reviews

A - Video games as art. You're darn right it can be art. Jim Kelly gives us a look at some of the art work he's done. Take a look at it

R - Bloodstained isn't afraid to be sexy. Xombiemike gives us the poll results for some costume ideas that fans voted on

Just remember, he who stands on toilet is high on pot--Dere

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.
