Today is Sunday. That's all I've got besides this short video. Posting early. Have a good night Dtoid members.




*- Mega Man 5 a lost Mega Man game Uranus man.


A- Nice write up called "Are we what we play? My side of the story."
A - Why fusiontr loves destructoid short blog.
A- Top ten things to have in a zombocalyspe.
A- Big wall called "oh dear my list of do wants will leave me in overwhelming debt." Seemed to be about new games coming out and being expensive. Pro Tip: Rent games.


Contests on the weekend? Rarely ever.


E-Rock out with Dtoiders in Sydney
E- UK Narp yet another reminder
D- This is a fun one called "Pumpkintoid my lack of carving skills on display for your pleasure."
B- Oh its cutie honey's birthday counting the agos
B- Toneman writes "Happy birthday cutie honey."


N-Fable 2 at circuit city rock out.

Nothing to say really. Not been playing a lot this week. I write on my twitter account what I'm playing, just in case you want to see what I'm up too. Worked on Bonerquest some more today. Actually getting somewhere now. Both towns, the world map, and two dungeons are there. I just have to put everything into them. Design the other five dungeons, put everything in there, then I'll be ready to pass out a test version of Bonerquest. Will you accept the Bonerquest?

Again I ask, with a name like Bonerquest, what do you expect?

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.
