How to Kiss a Woman, by James Tiberius Kirk

Always nice to start off Mondays with a little misogyny, he said sarcastically. Maybe that's why they moved House to Mondays last season. Anyway.

I'd intended to do the YTMND thing on the first Monday of every month, but as you no doubt recall, my body became the home to all disease over the last couple of weeks. I'm behind on posting my PAX pictures and stuff too... time just keeps slippin'. At least I can post the YTMNDs tonight and pick it up again in a couple of weeks. So with no further ado:

Super Tim Allen Land
DOS games were the best.
Vader plays Rock Band.
And he's a busy guy, also freelancing for Team Rocket.
The Blue Bomber has his work cut out for him.
Capcom's looking to branch out. Would this work?
The signs were all there.
Ultros' garden.
Super Pizza Kart
D'awwwww.
How is it that there's STILL no Wii version of Mario Paint?
Little Mac vs. Blanka.

And of course a few Random Man Now Dogs.

Moe in the lawn.
It's time for Han to pay.
An Aardvark's preferred prey is Brent Spiner.
Plutonium!


*-TSuereth brings to light something that you're probably not familiar with, but should be. Please take a few minutes to read this; it's important.
*-Tofa Waifu got everyone in the Monday spirit.
*-The DRMaster knows age ain't nuthin' but a number. And a stereotype.
*-MegaStryke's Musing looks at a couple of spinoffs starring the amped-up amphibians known collectively as the Battletoads.


A-The Night Knight compares a tale of two Zeldas in this article.
A-Crunshii took some issue with the Sony article Jim wrote over the weekend.
A-RandomBullseye took a look back at one of Atlus' early NES outings. Oddly, the words "Astonishingly difficult" don't appear until about 1/3 of the way down the page.
A-TewDee wrote about a game that has even less than 2 dimensions... an ancient grandparent of MMOs known as a Mult-User Dungeon, or MUD.
M-I might argue that Knights of the Old Republic isn't a Forgotten game per se, but I can't argue that this blog by Bluexy isn't great.
M-Pedrovay2003's Musing for this month looks at Sega's answer to Mario Kart 64-- Sonic R.
S-NihonTiger90's What'd You Get? feature apparently had some trouble with the Grammarator.
S- Tanukitsune played through Redneck Rampage and a few other, probably better games.
P-Backwards Compatible 26 is now available.
P-Drunkcast records tonight.
P-Refused Classification has good reason to be pissed off this week. Expect some rage on the topic of L4D2.


C-Nilcam's King of Dtoiders week 2 review features videos of several of the matches. Good stuff.


E-Vexed Alex would like some help with a community roundtable discussion on older games. Would you kindly help?
S-Ben Perlee IS Apollo Justice.
R-360s seem to know when big releases are coming and time their RRODs accordingly. Our condolences, ThreexPennyco.
R-Superhobo's 360 died a while back, but he's found a temporary solution that doesn't involve towels.


N-Zombie Panic in Wonderland. Got your attention? Thought so. Now have a look at this concept art brought to you by Infinity's End. Snow White alone is worth the price of admission.
R-Subenu reviewed the Wii game Disaster: Day of Crisis. Does this have anything to do with the old PS2 series that started with Zettai Zetsumei Toshi?
T-Armando would like to know what class in Borderlands people are looking at. I think I'll go with an Amazon first. Or maybe a Necromancer.
T-Suitcoat Avenger's been biz-zay but he took some time to update us on his various thoughts.
T-Sanious is having a gamer lull, where he just doesn't want to play. Ever had one of those?
T-Monodi's taken stock of his life and is thinking about the future, and how this all relates to gaming.
D-Doctor Insidious gives us an inside look at assembly programming.


A-Suitcoat got his groove back. I like purple.
M-It's Mashup Monday as Casual Weaponry takes over dTunes for the week.


L-Crunshii heard a rumor about the Wii 2. But you should check this one out for the Left 4 Dead/Teletubbies mashup video.
R-Not sure if this is a complaint or bragging.
V-Some video from the most recent Friday Night Fights.
R- This article has been peer reviewed. Well, that's comforting.
V-Danger, Chaos and Exploding Babies.
C-Besides linking to a Kotaku rumor story, (already a no-no) the blog part of this didn't really say much.


Another week with no outrageous fail! For you, I share my watermelon smoothie.

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.
