So yeah, another day, and another recap. Everyone have fun the new video games are out. Bonerquest might come out soon. New games I've bought are fun stuff. I like RC Cola. Hot Fries are awesmoe. Push ups that are grape and red (strawberry, cherry, or rasbery? I don't know) flavored are the most amazing things ever. Besides Phis Food Ben & Jerrys. That shit is amazing.

Add me on xbox live, we can play some video games.



I didn't pick anything gain.


A- Some predictions about the Spike TV video game awards.
A- Someone wants a fighting game for Christmas. I'll let you read to see which fighting game it is.
A- Post about an older game that flew under the radar. I don't think I've heard of it and I try to be aware of as many games as possible. Good find, I want to know more.
S- That japan trip has another day and another post.
G- Some tips for that zombie game.
?- Altered Beets posts something.
?- This guy got a nice haul of video game stuff. Why am I putting it under word? Other or culture would work better, but I'm already up here.


C- A contest update on the weekend? This one is the Street Fighter IV contest about beating a member. This is the first weeks update.[/b]


B- A birthday post.
D- I don't even want to post a link to this. This always makes me sad to read this sort of post.
I- A first post, something about Metal Gear Solid. Destructoid welcomes its new community members.
?- A member gives us their week in gaming. This goes under community.


N- A board game I heard about is coming to xbox live. This is news, I guess.
N- A game called Valkyria Chronicles is pretty cheap at everyones favorite american game store.
T- Something about Persona.
T- Something else about Shin Megami which I think is also Persona.
T- Fallout 3 post.
T- Final Fantasy Eleven, someone considers playing it again. I passed on that one, am I missing anything?
T- Someone says something about the election and a mod for a certain zombie game. I skimmed it. See what they were talking about.
T- Another Persona post.
T- A post about that Wii download service. They list off some older video games. Mario Excitebike? What is that?
P- Preview of one of those multiplayer role playing games.
P- I think this is a preview of some video game gear. I don't know exactly, I guess this stuff vibrates.
R- Mirrors Edge review.
?- This is a post about music someone wants in Rock Band. I don't know, but I guess this is video game related somehow. Question mark seemed apropriate.


A- Some artwork.
A- Member dressed up as Mario. Guessing that goes under art.
F- Guy mentions the Punisher movie. I enjoy Punisher stuff.
V- Some videos. Content warning.


?- A post about a few things. An update on this members situation as a newspaper employee and other stuff.
?- Deleted a friend from their xbox. Okay?
?- An album that is a nintendo cartridge. I don't know what else to say. This goes under other, right?


F- Ryu fails for having the Resident Evil 5 demo. Seriously, this is pure failure. Why must you have it and I don't? Furthermore, a demo for such a game seems silly.
F- Clearly getting a good deal and not being me is failure. Seriously, I want to play Parasite Eve and have yet to do so. You just walk into a thrift store and find it.
S- Something about flashlights. I don't know what to look for, seriously, too short. I don't know what is going on.

If anything is broken I'll have to fix it later.

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.
