Hey all.

I was going to write something great here (Riiight, suuure I was) but then I ended up talking to Megastryke on Facebook for an hour. So I think I'll take a page out of SilverDragon's book and just start things off with a couple awesome pictures of a squid.



This thing's called a Vampire Squid. Does that rule, or what? Images came from here.


*-Keep a shot glass full of eye bleach handy for Handy's new feature, Fanart Flops. (NSFW)
*-Help Elsa celebrate her 250th conversion of a thinking, feeling human into so much fender meat.
*-LK404 has some great tips on how to make the most out of your gaming budget.
*-Tubatic's one of the biggest Mega Man fans around, and his predictions for the upcoming Mega Man Universe have me getting excited.


A-Trioptical thinks a recent announcement in M.A.G. is the gaming equivalent of chocolate-covered-bacon-on-a-stick.
A-Enkido and Bluth's Banana Stand have been duking it out in the C blogs regarding how pretend violence and real violence are related. Interesting stuff, but Beyamor's right about the teeny tiny monkey brains.
S- Magnet School's "electives" course causes Elsa to get all alliterative.
M-SAMA1984's Musing looks at the idea of taking a character and all their personality traits from one game to another.
P-Podsumaki recorded episode 9 tonight, all about MORTAAAAL KOMMMBAAAAT!


W-Beyamor's contest post says that in a way, everyone is a winner! But in another, more accurate way, Stevil is the winner.


S-DtoidSF had a great time over the weekend, attending the Final Fantasy concert called Distant Worlds.
B- Happy belated Birthday, Metallion! And thanks for the Apple Pie recipe.


T-LoopyChew has some concerns about the upcoming Power Gig: Rise of the Six String.
T-Though it's months from release, Ninjasnake thinks people are being too hard on BulletStorm.


A-Corduroy Turtle's girlfriend added some awesome artwork to his game-related limericks.
F-Gyrael wrote a beautiful blog about what cinema means to him.
S-BenelliM4 demonstrates a possible reason why Topher used to use the term "Yard Sale" when something was awesome.


C-This isn't formatted very well, and the content gives off a strong whiff of troll. Watch your ass.
C-I'll give ya a pass since the forums are down, but this would really be more appropriate over there.
C-Same deal. I hope the forums come back soon.


F-It's a great song, but it's not a blog.


-(Qalamari)

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.
