Three caps in a row, plus dealing with a sick family, plus yet another weekend of graveyard shifts?

Pure. Machine.

I recently posted a contest where you could draw some horrible looking food related abomination to win a copy of Shadowrun Returns. Just want to say thanks to everyone who entered; there were only, like, three of you, but it was fun all the same. Here is the winning picture, the lucky creator (Brutal2d) of which received his copy of the game yesterday, even in the face of the apparently game breaking patch that a lot of people have been struggling with. Hope it works out okay, pal, because it really is a fun game; I got my game working again this morning after deleting a particularly finicky piece of user generated content. I should also amend yesterdays caps by saying that it wasn't Life on a Limb I was playing and disliking before, it was A Lost Lamb. Life on a Limb, despite pushing the limitations of the software by having abnormally large maps with lots of things going on in them, is actually a lot of fun, and is quite difficult to boot.



Speaking of games no one else really cares about, I put ten hours into Time and Eternity before calling it quits. I have played a lot of shit RPG's in my time, with at least a handful of those being published by NiS, but this was by far the worst. I traded up for Ar Tonelico Qoga, which in comparison, is like Final Fantasy VI had a baby with Chrono Trigger, even though it too is just average on its own. Nevermind how embaressing it is to play a game in front of your wife where the main mechanic in battle is girls literally stripping to "get more power somehow" or whatever; but I have kind of come to accept that kind of dumb horseshit from the genre at this point, whether I like it or not.

Anyways, I'm feeling under the weather, so I wanna get these bad boys done. There aren't too many of them today, fortunately. Have a good week everyone!

* - Honathan Jolmes is a hard working man. Check out his audio review of Pikmin 3, and more importantly, enter to win a pair of Teenage Pokemon underwear featuring everyones favorite degenerate, Ditto! (I honestly typed his name wrong as a total mistake, leaving it the way it is for the ridiculousness of it.)

P - Episode 17 of the Scary Granules podcast. There are enough podcasts around these days that no one should have to be bored at their terrible night job in a warehouse where Christmas music occasional plays over the PA! At least, I know I'm not.

M - Gaming with SeymourDuncan17 is a complicated affair. Gaming with me is a lonely one where I make you sit in the bathtub while I play Sonic 1 and eat popcorn.

M - Duncan Mitchell talks about what it's like to game with him. Jeez, I didn't know that was a thing you could do with people? Well, aren't you just a bunch of social butterflies!

A - Wanna game with Tarvu? Here are some of the things you can expect.

E - It's not too late to enlist as a Weekend Warrior, chummers.

T - An interesting look at jiggly bits. Honestly, I think we are all just fascinated with big bubbly spheres bouncing around.

V - A review of the new Red vs. Blue. My cap just got super rhymey right here.

S - I guess this is a response to the new Bloggers Wanted? It will surely grace the front page in no 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.
