Sadly, I haven't too much time for my Gasms so it's gonna be a quick one.

So, I've been waiting in anticipation for the PS4, but as I look more and more at what will be coming back this fall, I have a great grievance with it brewing. (which is pretty much my complaint with this upcoming generation in general) The whole no backwards compatibility thing is gonna be pretty annoying.



This fall I will be buying the new Batman, GTA, and the upcoming South Park game. This means for the first couple months I'll have the PS4, I'm gonna be switching a whole lot between the PS4 and PS4. Now, 6 months from now, I don't think I'll give a damn, but the great lineup of games for coming out this season has me wondering if getting the new console at launch is really worth it.

What do you guys think? Anyone who reserved the PS4 or Xbone have this problem?

Another fine day for blogs. Let's get to it and enjoy these FUCKING SHARK WEEK themed pictures.

* - Zerocrossingy discusses the portrayal of women in games in a well done way. What I appreciated the most were his thoughts on other people's approach to the topic.

* - Zombie-ee is at his best with this edition of Talking to Humans.

A - Joey hits us with some thoughts on his backlog that I can relate to.

M - Popey's distaste for Mega Man's level design sparks a debate.

S - Another fine entry in the SaveState series.





I - VagrantHingey's first blog shows a very promising start. Can't wait to see more from you.

T - Sephzilla-ee ponders on how MMOs could be better.

R - Nadery seemed to enjoy Metro. Kudos for using the /5 scale.

D - Johnny is working on a cool little game here. Interested to check it out, for sure.

A - Gargaroo-ee gives us some thoughts on how art contributes to immersion. Really like the picture he used.





S - A not so great introduction. Better luck next time !

SHARK WEEK

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.
