I'm smashing the glass and grabbing the fire extinguisher. CAPS will be covered in soot and white goo. Enjoy!



* - Voltech WILL convince you that Devil Survivor 2 is brilliant. Also that Watch_Dogs is terrible.

A - RedHeadPeak brings us another lesson plan. This one compares the Mushrrom Kingdom to the reign of Henry VIII. You probably need to read it to understand that.

A - Part 2 of Zuckerhund's article about the hellhole we've all created that is called videogames. This part focuses on the actual trailers and PR.

A - Sabotender's delicious love of the Tales series.

A - Gray Time loves playing with himself, and applauds Bethesda for allowing it.

M - Caubex lays out his hopes & predictions for E3. Soon!!

A - SigriedLion makes the case for trying Persona 2, if you never have before.



D - StriderHoang shows some love to the bloggers and front-pagers with these Destructoid Trading cards.

D - We get an update on Magic Miguel from mascot1063. Gamemaker ftw.

T - The Velour Fog has some QUESTIONS for Evolve. He's skeptical of the game thus far.

D - Zer0t0nin is entering the 2014 Indie Game Maker Contest! Here he outlines his ideas and overall plan. He plans on daily updates too.

T - kenshin89 thinks we should all be playing Go. How about it? Any Go players in our midst?

R - Gamingnerd15 reviews Child of Light.

R - TheKodu reviews Battle for Demon City.

R - Dookysharpgun posts his old review of Sleeping Dogs.

S - pedrovay2003 mods his Dualshock 4 with Xbox parts, that crazy sonofabitch.

L - Tonich knows exactly how a remake of FFVII would look today.

F - Artyom lists his favorite RPGs from the last couple years. But bad formatting, grammar, and a lack of info put this blog in the FAIL section. I'm sure you can do better.

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.
