Today, Destructoid asked what my most anticipated game of 2013 was, and I could only pick one? Looking at the list, I started to get really excited about the coming year, and also really sad for my bank account (it'll be OK, buddy)! We've got Ni no Kuni (!), The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (!!), Dark Souls II (!!!), Guacamelee, Monaco, SpyParty, Super TIME Force, Tomb Raider, The Last Guardian (???), Rayman Legends (too bad I'm not getting a Wii U), and more... and there are no doubt even more that aren't even on the list (Mew-Genics?). I mean, damn. The games haven't even been released yet and I'm already overwhelmed!

Bring it on, 2013!


(PS: I voted for Dark Souls II... :D)

Oh, and before I forget, I wrote a blog for my Top 10 games of 2012 earlier today. Check it out if you want!

* - Isshak Ferdjani interviewed the cast and director of Us and the Game Industry, a documentary about indie developers. It's a very interesting interview with some surprising responses!

* - Strong female leads in video games... the conversation rages on! If we don't see some more female leads anytime soon, I will be very surprised and disappointed.

* - The video games of 2012 gave Cutie Honey so many feels (eight of them, to be exact)! Also, he's giving away some Steam games!

A - TheKodu thinks Sony is destined to fail if they implement the patent they filed regarding pre-owned games.

A - ccesarano makes some hefty predictions about Valve and Sony for 2013.

A - Everyday Legend has a crazy idea for rebooting the Mega Man franchise which just might work!

A - SuperCrow's Top 5 games of 2012. Some fine choices here!





E - It looks like the DtoidUK DecNARP was a big ol' happy sausage fest!

S - Nathsies hasn't been around Dtoid in awhile because he's been focusing on his studies, and recently received some wonderful news!

F - Friday Night Fights on the 360 + Jon Tron at MAGFest!

F - Friday Night Fights on the PS3 + Dear god... nightmare fuel!

T - Megakrang spent his holidays on a lush tropical island, relaxing by the bonfire and whacking people upside the head with a giant dildo bat.

P - Hmm... I wonder why games like ZHP: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman or The God and Fate Revolution Paradox don't get much attention? Maybe their god-awful names have something to do with it...

T - What if Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII turns out to be a good game? What will we do then?!

D - These guys are introducing Destructoid to a new game they're working on called Edge of Space.

$ - January 4th UK releases and bargains!





C - Copypasta of a necro-review for a Sega Genesis game... also no pics. At least he has an adorable blog header!

C - levelseeker is lost in Final Fantasy XIII-2 and apparently GameFAQs can't help... also, goddamn, that game's plot sounds awful.

C - A very short thought about violence and video games.

F - I guess this is spam? Either that or someone is very lost.

F - Who let this crazy person in? We don't need any paranoid conspiracy theorists here, thanks.

F - In case you didn't notice, the site you are posting on is Destructoid... not 3DS Buzz.

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.
