I made the mistake of reading Holmes review of Guacamelee and watching the Giantbomb guys Quicklook of it. Now all I want to do is sit around, drink cervezas, and sulk that it isn't on the 360.

I ain't even joking, I'm going to make so much Mexican food today.

I've felt like poo for the past few days, so enjoy these pictures of Mexican related stuff in lieu of actual written content.


-I actually do make legit tacos.









* - Best review of Infinite I've read.

* - Shuuda makes some good points about RPGs and pacing. I can't be the only one who finds it jarring when a dragon is willing to wait while I rescue kittens out of a tree and scrape the hills for minerals to blacksmith up a sword.

* - Dark Souls concept runs are the best.

A - Square is out of it's mind. The paper thin obvious attempt to throw Enix under the bus for Square-Japan's failures is sickening.

A - TheKodu talks about indy development.

P - You better believe I'm gonna get down with some tacos, Tuesday or no.

A - Some games are easier than others to lose yourself in. When a game like Tomb Raider tries to make serious points about humanity and life, only to have you fall 30 into concrete in the next scene to no ill effect, it gets hard to take it seriously.

A - Hakael is very hopeful that Ouya and other open platforms will blow the lid off the established games market. But I just don't see it.



-Not mine, but I did make some crazy dios los muertos cookies this Halloween.
I - Shibboleth introduces himself with a blog about the Megaman game that never was.

R - Nilcam takes a last look at Skyward Sword.

T - Woah! There are still people out there playing SWTOR and its still being updated!? N7 will take those interested on a tour of the new content and changes.

R - Cmstrott weights in with a Bioshock Infinite review. I don't want to blow the surprise, but he might have liked it a little bit.



-Why did I never learn to play El Fuerte!?
? - This is video game related because of reasons I'm sure.

R - Notorum feels like some of the hysteria about EA has gone overboard.

R - PlayBoyMan has a very egalitarian mission statement for his future games.

S - Kickstarter ghetto.


-Wrenchfarm

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.
