Today, as you ponder, "How do I trick this person?," just remember that there is a line to be crossed. April Fool's can go terribly wrong in several ways, and you don't want to be remembered as that douchebag who ruined it for everyone. Please exercise good judgement and common sense. Remember that idiom: It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye. I'm still so sorry, Tyler.
April Fool's! Go fucking crazy.

Ahem. Hey; at least we get some cool stuff out of this holiday, right? Like Sega's Rappy Bird, or Square Enix putting Garrett in Final Fantasy. Well...that's not great. But you get the idea.

No CAPS today. April Fool's


* - Arsenic13 pleads his case for cock. He thinks male nudity should be more abundant, and nudity in general shouldn't be so taboo in certain media.

* - Char Aznable dips into the Dtoid well of memories and pulls out The GHosts' amazing Destructoid Cards. These were so cool. Maybe...it's time for a new deck?

P - TheDustinThomas' podcast is looking for more questions. This week's episode is about wrestling videogames! Comments, questions, and declarations about what wrestling game is best are welcome.



C - MeanderBot is nearing the end of his process and looking for input on the final Printoid image. Please take a minute to throw in your 2 cents!

F - Scield decides to post the Xbox Friday Night Fights post way early, to give non-forum people a chance to actually get organized before Friday night. Thinking about hosting something on Friday? Well, you've got plenty of time to ponder.

T - PopetheRevXXVIII has some thoughts about Kingdom Hearts, and Street Fighter. What's this BS about frame drops on the PS3 version of SSFIV AE 2012?

T - Blue Odeyssey remembers the good times. Thanks to Final Fantasy X, and X2, he can relive some of those great times. Do you feel the same way about how the landscape has changed?

R - Spazzh20 reviews the original Kingdom Hearts, and it almost sounds like he likes it or something.

R - Lord Spencer's review of the SNES game The Adventures of Batman & Robin.

T - junespirit loves Disney and doesn't care who knows!

A - RenegadePanda totally outclasses the 'official' version of the MGS: Ground Zeroes PS4, with his own design.



F - Terry 309 honors Cybele with this review of Valkyrie Profile 2.

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.
