Heh.

I thought I was getting off light tonight, but-- What's that you say, Admiral?



It's a trap? Why, whatever do you mean?


Ohhhh. Undocumented feature GET!

Oh well. At least I caught it before this post went live. I guess that all Haiku version of the recaps I was gonna do will have to wait.

Recaps are below.
Writing haikus isn't hard,
just time consuming.


*-Blehman reveals the SECRETS behind everyone's favorite geriatric samurai. Somewhere deep in North Carolina, a man sits weeping silently into his luxuriant beard.
*-Got a case of the Mondays? WalkYourPath has the cure.
*-Say Hi to Kauza's mom, won't you?
*-Pascuz46 posted a link to something Hive's been working on for a long time. This.... is impressive.


A-Subenu's Videogame Canon is a work in constant flux, but here's what the forum folks have come up with so far.
A-SilverDragon learned how hard it is to be mean over the last week.
S- Macaratti DOES IT WITH FURY when talking about his personal hero, Godzilla.
S-BulletMagnet's Obscurer Tribune series takes the gaming news of the future and puts it in media style of the past. Somehow, it works.
S-Psst. What'd You Get? Keep it quiet. No, you have it all wrong. It's not me that wants to know, no no. It's NihonTiger90. That's right. Keep it under your hat. He has ears everywhere.
S-Tankitsune played Postal last week. Pity him.
M-ShadowKatRegn's tribute to the Forgotten looks at a game inspired by the works of Edgar Allen Poe.
P-Drunkcast episode 10 is recording tonight, with special guest Morgan Webb!*


C-Boomsling is inviting all Destructoid members to play CoD4 for a chance to win some SteelSeries 3H headphones.
C-Destructoid Artisans would like you to show your love of SCUMM to win... well, click and find out.
C-Phalanxx is giving away a Johnson.


S-NinjaCameraman got an offer he couldn't refuse this week.
S-Garganroo's been displaced by a real mother of a storm. If you can help, I'm sure he'd appreciate it.
S-Solgrim just celebrated his first Destructiversary. Glad to have you.
S-Xyzliac wanted some advice on a spending conundrum.
I-Welcome to Destructoid, Jinrai.
I-Greetings to DrCGP, who claims he's a real Doctor. Unlike Dr. Mario. Or Dr. Tran.


N-RAB's hyped for the new Street Fighter announcement, whatever it might be.
N-Oh look! That's what it was.
N-Hairy shark confirmed for Continuum Shift. Oh, wait, no.
N-For Hriki, Steam may be the answer for acquiring lesser-known titles that are refused classification in Australia.

R-Roager enjoyed the featured Indie Nation game Time Fcuk enough to do his own review.
T-Oh, Sanious, of COURSE Capcom is gonna milk Street Fighter IV until the udders are blackened and shriveled. Look at how many versions of Street Fighter II are on the Virtual Console if you need any further confirmation.
T-Sparroo's easy to please, asking for things that have already been added to Gran Turismo 5.
T-Calebyte's noticing there's less time for games just as you start making enough money to buy them yourself. Sucks how that works out, doesn't it?

A-If you like bright colors and cute game controllers you should have a look at this poster Axor made.
M-Balzac. (Uncontrollable giggling)
F-A remake of Nightmare on Elm St.? Is nothing sacred? Well, Freddy isn't, that's for sure.



L-Handy went looking through gaming's recent history to find some characters who share his native land. My favorite wasn't mentioned, but you can see it here.
R-With two weeks until the release of Brutal Legend, Tim Schafer has had a little time to reminisce. Mooks brings us the link... this is good stuff.
R-I've got nothing against anyone who loves Okami. I don't think you'll find many here who do.
R-So, what would happen if a team of gaming's all-stars faced off against Samit's beloved New York Yankees? GTMoney has the answer.
V-Segata Sanshiro was the best marketing campaign Sega ever came up with. Truly deserving of the very first "Badass of the Month" award.
V-How to make fake blood shoot out of people. Just in time for Halloween!
C-This is kind of all over the place. You're presenting yourself as a psycho but doing "hard" gaming news. It's a little tough to follow.
C-Getting caught fapping to your own post isn't just masturbation; it's narcissism.

F-Not seeing the point of this, other than to try to pick a fight.

*No, not really. You crazy? She's in Japan, for one thing.

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.
