Bruce Campbell is still the best thing about Burn Notice, and everything about that show is pretty good.

Huh? Nah. Aw, c'mon. What're you talking about? It's only... eight, nine, carry the one... seventeen, eighteen hours? That's pretty damn late!

So, yes, mea culpa, my apologies to all the recapketeers out there. I won't go into why Monday is going up after Tuesday except to say that sometimes, quite frequently in fact, I really wouldn't mind having a different job. Anyway. Lots of Topsauce yesterday, I'm sorry I made you wait for it. Let's get to it as swiftly as possible.


*-Short, sweet, and to the point: Yes, yes I DO like videogame music. Thank you for asking, and thank you even more for sharing.
*-Eh, it's a Beyamor musing. You know it's good.
*-Bushofghosts made up some truly sw33t stickers based on her Astro headset entry, and you can have one if you want. And want you will.
*-Commentoid is just getting started, and already Monodi tried to break it. Looks like the community is onboard with this new feature though.
*-A night of altered consciousness left Om Nom on Souls a little introspective and a lot more receptive to games without stories.
*-LK404 knows how to make Sonic good again. Let's hope at least some of these suggestions make it into Sonic Colors.
*-BulletMagnet's Magnet school concludes with this, the graduation ceremony. I can almost hear Pomp and Circumstance in the background.

H- Winged Kraby showed off his room, is spectacular Blur-O-Vision!

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.
