Penis penis penis penis penis penis. I've taken to saying penis as a greeting when I enter a room lately. Also I've sucked at recapping lately, 1 late recap, 1 missed recap last week (a change in recap computer which screwed me over) and now an ON TIME RECAP! Check the skies.

Videogames videogames videogames. I haven't exactly been playing much lately. It's been bitesized nuggets of gameplay when I feel like it. Instead I've been doing not much again. It's really quite hard to think of what I've really been doing lately.

Oh right, I've gone into election mode. I'm a hopeless election addict and it's my home country heading towards one this time. I have manifestos to read, news to watch and read and come May 6th an entire glorious night of coverage to obsess over courtesy of the hilarious Jeremy Paxman and hopefully the insanity of the BBC's graphics department.

I need help. Oh well, here are some blogs and the answer to that most critical question. Where did I put Beyamor's quest for Failtoid blog?



* - I won't keep you waiting, Beyamor gets Topsauce because his #2 is still making me giggle
* - Good rant, Apple aren't nearly as safe among nerds now everyone else is catching up
* - What the original Xbox Live (being deactivated today as you read this) means to Alakaiser
* - Related to the above blog, Tarvu's hosting one final blowout to say goodbye to Halo 2
* - Dear Niero, can we have a Dreamtoid category in the Cblogs?



A - Thoughts on games that repeat the same formula
A - My dear DtoidUK bretheren Anus questions how badly Harmonix have dropped the ball with Green Day Rock Band

S - Comments of the Week time (also featuring the greatest Sonic 4 theory EVER)
P - What's arousing, fapworthy and contains Jim Sterling? Nicole Wiebe. Also SEGA Addicts 6
P - RDS 8, featuring the Ikaruga



C - DJVLive is giving out copies of AvP2000 and has some of his own AvP memories in here



S - Dtoid Midwest has a Facebook group now
I - Dynomice has the latest in a long line of excellent intros



N - Batthink found this list in the Telegraph newspaper, interesting (if badly titled) stuff
N - Demon's Souls is coming to Europe ABOUT FUCKING TIME

A - Enkido made art, also SHARK
A - GAME CAKE!! Grimspoon's Day of the Tentacle cake
F - Xandaca saw Clash of the Titans, poor guy
M - Guncannon showcases some of his favourite MMX intro stage remixes



? - This is certainly quite random, especially as a first blog



F - OK, some context would be nice, else this is just pointless rage
F - I don't feel good failing this, especially with the comments being brutal (and hilarious)
F - There are adverts in my Cblogs
F - uck off


(NJ, also ZOMG I ACTUALLY PUT MY AVATAR IN HERE)

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.
