It's snowing...

And I am cold and grumpy and I want the snow to go away. Winter always puts me in a foul mood. I don't really have anything for you today as far as these -isms go, but here are some pictures of kitties in the snow. They make me feel slightly less hateful towards snow.

* - Though I remain pretty optimistic about the current state of video gaming myself, I definitely agree with Char Aznable's complaints about the industry. But there are plenty of great games out there, you just have to know where to look!

M - Returner Mike's debut Cblog focuses on the monthly topic of sex in video games. He has a very reasonable viewpoint, and I'd say he handles the topic quite well.

M - ccesarano dreamed of creating a well-written hentai game, but the idea never came to fruition.

A - segastardust recently had a very bad experience at EB Games, a store he once loved.

A - CommanderCC offers up a cautionary tale of modding addiction and the problems that can arise from modding a game too heavily.

A - Pixielated makes some adjustments to her RPG quest, as she will now be focusing primarily on Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem.

A - Would it be beneficial to give developers a tighter budget to keep them from going under? Perhaps, but I don't think modern gamers would be too happy about it.

A - A brief history of Ketsui, a vertical shoot 'em up by Cave.





F - Friday Night Fights on the PC + Giraffes!

F - Friday Night Fights on the PS3 + MURDER SWORD.

F - Friday Night Fights on the Wii U + Yoshi is made of string!

T - Some thoughts on the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo by lokhe.

R - nilcam bought a very pricey set of component cables for his GameCube and gives them a review.

$ - January 25th UK releases and bargains!





V - Nick RP Green talks about video games while doing the dishes. He also mentions something about "hard on hot chocolate," so it sounds like a sexy video!

V - Video review of 10,000,000 by DanielCampbell.

R - Ronin4life seems to think the snow is affecting Disqus... goddamn snow!

C - Like and sub if you enjoy!!!!!!!111!!1! (I'm not really a fan of blogs like this...)

C - I guess he wins the sexual innuendo contest?

C - I don't understand why you would complain about an HD remake existing. Just don't buy it?

F - Beijing spams the shit out of the Dtoid Cblogs. Fuckin' Beijing.

F - Welcome back! Write a real blog next time.

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.
