Man, Christmas was awesome. Happy family times, well wishes from friends, a new tablet to play with, and I got the Canadian exclusive Wii Mini for the famjam. Just perfect. But I can't help but feel like I forgot something... hum.

Crap.

Sorry everyone! In all the hustle, bustle, and over eating/drinking of the holidays, I totally forgot my capping duties. For shame! Apologizes to everyone who posted Christmas day and are wondering where the caps are at. Just going to post these real quick and make room for Strider!

Whoops! Happy holidays people!

* - Snealiv writes an obituary to ME3's multiplayer that I couldn't disagree with more. I bleed N7 blood. But, it is a well written article and certainly a POV worth considering.

P - Do unseemly things to Spiderman in this episode of Binary Chode.

A - Marcunio88 finishes off his Twelve days of Christmas series. Swing by and check em out!

A - The only problem with this well curriated best of 2012 list? Max Payne isn't higher.

C - Get some Assassin's Creed 3 for Christmas from ConnorTheScot. This contest is DEAD SIMPLE to enter, so make sure to leave a comment on his blog and put your name in the hat. Man, a brand new AAA game, what a generous guy!

S - Happy Holidays from Nintendo, have some blinking blue lights on a brick! What a major bummer on Christmas morning. Anyone know how widespread this issue is? I would hate to see Nintendo have it's own version of the Red Ring.

T - TheKodu talks about the minor kerfuffle surrounding an indie game called Project Gert: Recon and the developers less than stellar response to criticism.



- I got a chuckle from this :p

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.
