I don't really watch TV. Not really ever, anymore. Even the Daily Show doesn't do it for me these days, it's just so damn political now. But... I had Breaking Bad.

HAD

But now it's gone. The ending. I loved it. I adored it actually. Seemed to be the first real series ending I actually appreciated. I'm going through withdrawal, guys. But enough of my first-world problems.

Been playing GTA V almost nonstop lately, though I'm yet to really dive into the online. A few days ago I gave it a shot and it didn't work at all. I've kind of lost interest to be honest. A couple of sessions at my friend's house of just running around hitting other players with cars and I'd had my fill. I'll probably give it another ago. I really need something to do until Arkham Origins comes out and I'm just not not in the mood for another quicktime adventure from Quantum Emotions.



So I figure I'll ask you guys the real question... what do I watch/play now?

* - A well done overview of the gaming industry.

* - Can the Legacy of Kain be saved? Benny has the answers.

A - Nocy with some food for thought on the issues sandbox games bring to storytelling.

A - Travy with some Steam Machine speculation for you.

C - MUSICIANS WANTED

E - New fan site celebrating Dragoons.

R - Shuudy with a fine review of Shadow Warrior

P - Strider with a GTA Online brochure for the uninitiated.

R - A thoughtful Killer is Dead review.





L - A new zero cool which is dare I say.... cool

V - New Pocketoid, ya'll!

F - The weekly blog that's just a video link.

But seriously, what ever happened to Huell?

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.
