C Blogs of 12/23/13 + a quick word

Sometimes us Dtoiders need each others' help. Usedtabe is making the call for another Dtoider who wishes to remain anonymous. You can't blame them. Some conditions are more embarrassing than others, even if it's not your fault. It's totally understandable. Used is looking for some donations to get this person to a doctor, and even stuff like games to take his/her mind off of things. If you're in the holiday spirit, please help if possible.

One of the things this community prides itself on is being more than just avatars to each other.

Check it out here and please consider helping.

* - Titannel shares with us his favorite Christmas moment: the Xmas his parents surprised him with a Dreamcast. I may or may not have shed a couple tears reading this sweet blog.

* - Justin Villasenor's top 10 Chocobo themes. Oh yes.

P - Communitoid episode 26, with special guest OpiumHerz! Listen to Joanna's last full episode :(



I - LReiviN isn't new, but this is his first blog. He's looking to do some art commissions (quite talented I see!) or to have y'all check out his game he's working on. He may or may not draw you some Jonathan Holmes porn, as well. Check it out if you're looking for a new piece or just want to help out.

I - say hello to anthonyacc! He's a big Twitch streamer, and was interested in posting because of the...positivitey as of late. (yeah let's keep that going, right?)

T - zerocrossing has a lovely list of 5 Christmas-themed games to try out!

V - Historicnerd has a video about the not-so-good SNES game Supergodzilla, and includes some cool Godzilla facts.

V - The Game Corner talks about Pokemon Snap, probably.

A - BeatBeat switches it up a bit for this comic; it's very heartwarming and embodies what is so enjoyable about the holidays. It also features Animal Crossing characters, and Isabelle as the Christmas tree top. SO CUTE!

L - Alex Barbatsis drops in to say hello and post a very timely Black Eyed Peas parody.

F - The sentiment is interesting, but the post isn't.

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.
