Hey guys and girls, who's ready to be horribly depressed?!?


You may wonder why this video is heading the recaps tonight. Well, if you listened to the most recent episode of Podtoid, the usual suspects were discussing this Cracked.com article about soul-crushing TV series finales. Having experienced this for himself, one of our regulars took it upon himself to create something the Henson company will probably never forgive.


*-To save myself an ass-kicking by Char Aznable, this gets the top honors tonight. Good thing it's actually well written and worthy of the nod.
*-Clever title? Check. Well written article? Double Check. Topsauce? Checkmate.


A-This article on Killer 7 by Mooks introduces the titular 7. Sounds like something I should play.
P-Podsumaki is recording episode 4 this evening. Probably done by now, come to think of it.
P-S Pastic did an interview with Raymond Herrera of 3volution productions that you may want to check out if you're interested in games' audio.


C-Mark Oleski is giving away a beta code for StarCraft 2. But you don't want that. Not as much as I do.


Nothin'.

Once again, congratulations to Anthony and to Ms. Davis. I missed out on the lovefest last week, but this seemed appropriate.


N-DerrickH posted something newsworthy that might also be appropriate in our contest area. How's 10,000 Microsoft spacemoney sound?
T-With a new set of Pokemon games just over the horizon, NihonTiger90 wants to know, what do you think should be changed?
T-SocialNorms has been playing the Halo: Reach beta and shared some impressions.
T-JustKarol wonders how nostalgia figures in to the incessant lists of the BEST GAMES EVER.
R- Daniel Campbell posted a video review of thinly-veiled Cuba simulator Tropico 3.
R-Ramundi let you know what he thinks about the DS space combat title Infinite Space.
R-As well as the monster hunting title Monster Hunter Tri.


A- Faith and her perler beads fly in the face of Mr. Ebert's notion that nothing associated with gaming can be art.
M-Dread Pirate Rob.. uh, Stefan Turnbull gave dTunes a buccaneering theme today.
M-Stereotoid dumped a whole mess o' music on your sorry asses.


L-Jayce Diaz and friends put together a video parody of the opening to Resident Evil.
R-Bizzarre video from PDP Candace adding red glow to the blue.
V-I might have topsauced this if not for the godawful, ear-rape audio. Watch it on mute.



F-Competition or no, doing nothing other than stating your intent to write a blog later lands you at the bottom of our little list here.
F-Yes. Pelicans are weird. Great in Pokemon though, 'cause they can use Surf AND Fly.

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.
