I've finally been enjoying all the splendors of the new generation. I'm loving the PS4. While so many think that the launch lineup is nothing special, I find it just about perfect. Here's why.



Resogun. I'm obsessed. I've already clocked more hours into this games then my other games combined. It's old school and addicting to look to look at. The leaderboards, the trophies, the upped difficulty all has me coming back for more. I won't bore you with this any longer because it will all just be gushing over the gorgeous game.



Killzone: The singleplayer is good enough for a launch game. The visuals are stunning, which is exactly why I bought it, much like I did Killzone 2. Thought the glory of this game is how refreshing the multiplayer is. The fact that you get every gun from the start amazes me. I can't remember the last time I played a shooter online and didn't get owned simply because everyone has better equipment than me. Plus, it's loads of fun.



NKA2K14: This game looks amazing and much like the ones before it, is fun as hell to play on the couch with some friends and a few beers. This isn't a game I'll play much at all by myself, but with the graphics and gameplay it makes for a perfect local multiplayer session.

I never really expect much from a launch, but these titles have exceeded my expectations. Sure, there's gonna be a drought for a bit, but these will tide me over just fine.



* - This might be the best Comictoid to date.

* - A look back in time at the Nintendo Power Guide to Final Fantasy. A great read, Savestatey

* - Benny tells us of 5 Animal Simulators that Must be Made. This Must Be Read.



A - Some interesting numbers for those wondering how the console launch games did.

A - Huh, the Assasins Creed app looks pretty interesting. A good read for anyone curious about it.

A - Plumby wants to know why there's no GBA games on virtual console. Nintendo, y u do dis???

S - Stridey's history of Pokemon's Metagame continues. Interesting to think that Blacl/White may be broken.







I - A fine premier blog about the SteamBox. Everyone greet the man... just do it.



$ - Gazy. Such strength. Such resistance of the Steam sales. Wow.



A - Sweet Uncharted shirt, bruh





S - That two sentence blog.



Lots of quality sauce today.

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.
