Mario Kart is so much better than I had expected guys. If you haven't had a chance to see it in action yet you should really get on that because it is just absolutely gorgeous. They also fixed a lot of the balancing mechanics from the Wii one. The new stages and items are also great new additions, and the online works flawlessly and is a ton of fun. My one complaint so far? Where is Birdo? No Birdo in MK8 is a huge mistake Nintendo. 2015 year of Birdo!!

Speaking of Nintendo we are less than a week away from E3! I am pretty excited. Microsoft should have big announcements since they've already announced kinectless XB1 and all those Halo details. Sony needs games to keep up that PS4 hype train. And Nintendo, well they have a lot they need to do, Mario Kart seems to have helped a bit but they still need to move a lot more units.

Do you guys have any predictions? I'll make a few just for fun. Microsoft: some sort of Windows handheld gaming device with the Xbox brand (not likely I know but...), New Rare IP or a returning one, big system update for XB1, Titanfall 2, Battlefield 3 is an XB1/PC exclusive (I would hate that myself but just making a prediction)

Sony: New Crash Bandicoot, new Jak and Daxter, Last of Us 2, Infamous game for Vita, PLEASE SAY SOMETHING ABOUT LAST GUARDIAN, system UI overhaul, new gravity rush for PS4 ad Vita

Nintendo: Smash release date and a new character, pokemon ruby and sapphire info, new 3d metroid for wii u, gameboy camera on 3ds eshop, gamecube virtual console games, pokemon red and blue on eshop (THAT SAME DAY?!) Mother 3 localization or maybe a Mother double (triple?!) pack for 3DS, 3DS lite

I could go on but I'm mostly just making wild guesses. What would your ultimate e# announcement be?

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.
