   0

Hello again, ladies and gents of Dtoid. Due to some technical issues, the weekend CAPS were, uh, deleted and stuff, so I'm covering for Phil and stuffing the weekend and Monday blogs together. As such, I haven't really had time to write any isms, and...OH LOOK! The UPS man just showed up with my copies of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate! HNNNNNGGGGG

Yeah, isms are dead. Time to HUNT!!!
Great blogs over the last 3 days, guys. Let's take a look.
CAPS for Kayumba:


* - SeymourDuncan17 lays out what needs to happen for Saints Row IV to be better than The Third. Someone listen to this man. Please.

* - Nathsies (Nate!) uses his finger-smith skills to write about names in games and their role in immersion.

* - Wrenchfarm gives 3 franchises the Green Light for a reboot. (skate. plz plz plz)

A - kurosaki has been consumed by the ever-growing menace known simply as "The Backlog."

A - Hyper Lemon Buster Cannon FINALLY finished FFVII. Find out why it took him so long, and get nostalgic.

A - Corporations always ruining our good times.

A - CarbonRevenge pours one out for THQ. I really did enjoy some of the things they put out over the years. R.I.P.

M - Megakrang discovers Destructoid while abroad. In perhaps the strangest way possible. (Podtoid)

M - "I DON'T NEED A MIC. MAX SCOVILLE, I THINK YOU'RE A LIAR. I THINK I'M TALLER THAN YOU" Time Glitch is an hero. #DtoidMemories

A - TheKodu is still excited for OUYA. Read why. (Sex games maybe?) I still think the thing has potential, despite them trying to shoot themselves in the foot at every turn.

A - Saydmell Salazar of POstuidios wrote this blog about art & work, and asks for some help in supporting others in the indie community.

A - On the "evolution" of our beloved games; The Steamdriven.

P - Pocketoid episode 31 gets into Etrian Odyssey IV, some eShop games, impressions on some free Vita games, and apparently a ride on a preschool bus...

M - Podtoid once again brings some new folks to Dtoid. Scary stuff. :P

E - Edco enters himself in the Dtoid Etrian Odyssey contest.

F - More awesome video recaps of Friday Night Fights. Thanks again for doing these, Ckarasu.

F - Weekend Warriors Vs Scott Pilgrim Vs The World Vs...

C - Jared Ramone updates his progress on his enemy NPC character.

C - Jared Ramone has yet another update from his D & D class.

V - Edge of Space has been getting more streaming, and the team is prepping some events and whatnot.

T - Esteban Sky Cuevas has an idea for a new Mega Man X game. I...rather like it! What do you guys think?

T - Slykill rebuilds his lost blog on God Of War: Ascension. He's got some grievances to air. Do you agree?

T - I personally disagree on the sentiments toward moblie gaming here in Arkhon's rant. What say you?

T - Welcome JaMoMaN to Destructoid! His first blog is about moving on...to EASY difficulty. Responsible adulthood sucks.

T - Sammer El leathy has some thoughts on franchises overstaying their welcome.

T - GlowBear thinks some well-placed cameos could be the difference maker.

T - The Steamdriven details his latest foray into League of Legends.

T - Matt Evans is another new guy here! His first blog is about his love for Bioshock, and his annoyance that his girlfriend enjoyed it despite "playing it wrong." Videogames are fascinating things.

T - GlowBear doesn't think it's time for another generation of home consoles.

R - GigaBoots video reviews Castlevania Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate.

F - Chechosauraus learns to love some anime. Who knew?!?

C - Somebody was booooored :P

? - "Im Egypt." Is Facebook always like this? burningsoup posts some drivel from a post on GoW: Ascension having Leonidas in it.

F - I honestly haven't watched the video. I'm just failing it because all Jordan has done is post his videos with no other substance. At least introduce yourself, sir.

F - This one is going in Failtoid, too. I don't have time to watch it and there is only a video with nothing else.

F - An interesting thought on just why The Phantom Pain is named as such, with the assumption that it is in fact MGS5. Also, I'm pretty sure I've seen this guy actually write some stuff. I know you can do better, Vito!

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.
