Seems Left 4 Dead has been fixed somewhat. Actually was able to make it into a decent server on the first try, unlike Tuesday where we spent 45 minutes trying to get a decent server before giving up. I'm definitely liking the tweaks so far, although I haven't given versus a spin since the update.

Also, among other things I watched a monkey skating today!



*- Unangbangkay like to pay by himself... with others... Awesome writeup
*- MegaStryke reminises about playing video games with his dad. I love how Monthly Musings generally brings out such quality articles
*- Tehmtnlion continues his scary story


S- I'll call it a series at this point. Michiyoyoshiku plays Guilty Gear. Could use more in-depth impressions of the game
S- Latest dTunes, with a very upbeat selection. I like
S- A cool idea, GamingGoddess continues narrating her playthrough of Parasite Eve
S- Mikey draws sick fetishes on demand!


No contests once again, so enjoy this bonus video of bears actually playing hockey. I'm honestly not sure whether I should be amused or horrified, but I do know they need to pull that goalie. He's not even trying to stop anything!



D- Tubatic makes a call for feedback on cblog improvements
C- SurplusGamer sees the light on the benefits of renting games
F- Come out and play some more AMMO beta tomorrow night!
F- Call for a WipeoutHD FNF tourney tomorrow night. Be there!
C- TewDee organizes games he wants to finish/keep playing with his NEW KEYBOARD
I- Nice intro, and she made Daxelman go crazy. I'd say win-win
S- Pendelton21 give a general life/blogging update
E- LAN party recap, and too much energy drinks... I had a NOS once, and it gave me an irregular heartbeat for the rest of the evening...


N- Monster Hunter G news, and a special edition classic controller
N- Gemsi brings us the EU releases for the week
T- Jonathan Holmes wants to know if we think Dtoid is "anti-Wii"
N- Teta links to some Battlefront 3 footage that surprsingly isn't a RickRoll
T- BSD has Kraken-phobia, and also fails for not mentioning the FF1 Kraken...
T- Tubatic outlines why he plays his 360 more than his Wii
R- I'll refrain from calling this a series until #2 comes out. NihonTiger resurrects Bargain Bin Laden... sort of
T- Thoughs on the DS Rumble Pack- OMG THAT'S A SPACE INVADER SNOWBOARDING!!!
N- How the hell is Mario Kart DS on the best selling games of 2008 list? :S
T- Thefil doesn't think anybody else is looking forward to these games


A- A very nice SMB cake^H^H^ oil painting
F- Sorry, but that gunfight looked really stupid...


C- Don't post a teaser with a link elsewhere for the whole article. Only reason this isn't fail is because it might be a good read...
V- Eminem's L4D advice apparently, although I assume he wasn't talking about L4D when he said that
O- History lesson from LaxLuster. The JRPG joke put it over the top for me
R- Something about hand-egg in Rockband. Don't care much for pro sports myself, but it is a nice use of the character creator
L- A Mega64 video that actually made me laugh. Very well done commentary about 1UP/EGM
C- Covah worries about FF release dates, and for some reason mentions fanboys?


F- An oddly coherent "drunken" "clog" full of delicious hypocracy
F- Seriously? More Obama-mania? I just popped a pimple that was more interesting than this (spoiler: it's currently bleeding)
F-Mark Gormley is from Florida, not "Canada's smallest province" dummy... Not a bad song though, even if the video is pretty bad :p
S- LOLFace didn't look just a few blogs down. Slightly redeemed by Droobies failing at trolling
F- Two fail blogs in one day, both buy the same person and both about the same topic... Am I the only one who's sick of hearing about Obama?

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.
