Probably not going to buy any of the new games in the next three months, until next year. Not to say I won't play them. Renting games is always the best solution. Unless its a game from two years ago that you can buy at the same price as the rental. Then it is rental rape.


*- MrSadistic writes about a guy proposing to his girlfriend using little big planet. They throw up a little in their mouth. I threw up a little when the front page featured the same story later in the day. That always makes me laugh.
*- Pornstars play video games. This is a news video.
*-An arcade cabinet built from scratch.
*- 10 Things Unstoppable Juggernaut learned this week co opted from aborto cause they his style.

S- A shortblog that links to another article about controllers. Controller page isn't so bad, actually some interesting stuff. I know how much you guys rush to see failure, so maybe check this out. They even show off the Colecovision's controller.

Just to say it again, rental rape. If someone can find a worse video game related picture than Jackie Chun Li, I'm open to suggestions to change it. Also its still really big for some reason.

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.
