What up party people? I feel like shit. Don't worry, that pic isn't real dookie. It's a Halloween recipe for kitty litter surprise. No, really. I can't wait to make that for people. Just slurp one of those brown bad boys up, while being stared at. Good times. But seriously, I am burnt out. Been doing a lot of stuffings lately. Doing that podcast thing still (we had some hiccups again), trying to write something actually worthwhile, getting into game development, working, raising the kids, taking care of my house... eesh. I'm tired just typing that. Yet somehow I still have time to play almost 60hrs of games in two weeks. How the fu..? Oh yeah, I don't sleep much. Damn you Civilization... and XCOM.... and Super House of Dead Ninjas... and... It just keeps going! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! At least I have fun with it all.



I am just one of those people that doesn't stop. During my surgery I chilled the hell out and I think I started going nuts from all the free time. IT WAS TOO MUCH! I thrive off of stress and deadlines and all that. I'm my best under pressure. Just how I was wired. Sometimes though, I really wish I wasn't that way. Like today. I just want to sit on my ass and do nothing. Not even game..... for maybe a few hours :p I think a lot of it is due to when I was a kid, being in the situation I was in, I had a lot of downtime. No toys, no books, no nada. That drove me crazy. So I started taking things apart. Figuring how stuff would work and creating projects for myself. Took apart my first calculator at 4. Put that bastard all the way back together too. Except for that one button, but we don't talk about that.



What's the point of all this rambling? Absolutely nothing. Just blowing off steam. Venting if you will. I saw some dick nozzle on the front page say that we didn't truly have a community here. What an ass. We totally do. I feel comfortable sharing my inner thoughts with you guys. I love reading your own inner workings as well. We all thrive off each other and help each other. Good or bad, we stand by our own. If that isn't a community or a family, I don't know what is. Maybe I should go sleep for an hour....



I hate you brain.... I think I'm manic.....

*- Chez Dispenser gets my hot sauce for a lovely blog that went into another direction than I thought it would. It's about tropes and women.... maybe a pig... I don't know. Read it.
*- Azureliske throws out an excellent blog about violence in games and the misdirection of the whole debate.
*- SongSeven may have copypasta'd this, but damn it's a good read about the search for true tolerance.

F- Phantom Spaceman is a moron.
F- Mags puts no effort or work into this one. Well, there's a picture at least.


Well, that's all for this week folks. I have road maps to make (game design), podcasts to plan and finish editing, kids to feed and love and a dog to walk. I know I haven't been around a lot lately and that makes kind of sad. I mean I'm here on the site all the time for my mod duties, but the actual interaction has gone down. I'm just super busy atm and loving it. Mostly. WOOOOOOOOOOOO! I LOVE AND MISS YOU GUYS!

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.
