Another one from this asshole? Yes, indeed. With some of the other Recappers busy or simply not available, I'm picking up the slack like your dad's underwear. I was planning on writing a bit about how poorly Rockstar seemed to have prepared for GTAO, but there's a couple of blogs that cover it fairly well. At the very least, I encourage everyone to give as much feedback as possible, and don't let up. You deserve what you paid for.

In other tangents, life is still one Simpsons reference after another. The new Treehouse of Horror premiered tonight, probably because they figured doing it in October was better than November. Besides a very cool opening by Guillermo Del Toro, the first act was okay, and that's it. It was a reminder that it needs to end soon and free up that time slot for something new...in all probability...Seth MacFarlane will get yet another show... FFS. Thank goodness for Bob's Burgers.
I also realize I shouldn't have watched it before writing up SATURDAY'S CAPS but that's neither here nor there.



A - taterchimp fell in love with EDF (welcome, brother!) and wrote about Insect Armageddon. He liked it so much that he did some 'Let's Plays' for it, with varying levels of technical success.



F - Weekend Warriors + a patch that didn't quite fix things

T - Roberto Plankton shares his thought and pictures made during Game City Vienna. There's even a cameo or two (of sorts) from other Dtoiders.

T - Skid Row Trash has some gripes & a cautionary tale from the stuttering Grand Theft Auto Online.

T - Another blog with some serious complaints about GTA Online; from drhuxtable. Get it together, Rockstar.

S - Kokopuff presents us with a selection of fan-made Team Fortress 2 t-shirts. Some of these designs are pretty good.

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.
