Cblogs of 05/02/14 + 05/03/14 and bbainisms

Well, this has been quite a weekend. I was just gonna talk about the new games I've been playing (Mercenary Kings and Child of Light), but then things started getting really serious around the site. Namely, seven staff members (that I've counted so far) have been laid off, including Spencer Hayes, Phil Janca, Casey Baker, Brett Zeidler, Joshua Derocher, Harry Monogenis, and most surprisingly, Conrad Zimmerman. The Dtoid Twitch channel is also going dark for the time being. 

This is a huge bummer... I wish everyone who was laid off the best, and I hope they can find something else soon. They will be missed :(

All of this also has me a little worried about the state of the site, but I dunno... I don't want to jump to any conclusions. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens to Destructoid from here on out. There are still some fantastic people on staff, but the lay-offs are certainly disheartening. I mostly stick to the Cblogs anyway, though, and it's not like those will be going anywhere. As long as there's still a community in the Cblogs, then I'll still have a place to call home on the internet!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
New Years Evil

So for this month's prompt, we should look to our best examples of scum and villainy. Talk about your favorite antagonists, villains, bad guys, and malcontents and why you like them so much. Certainly not because you want to be like them since the powers of law and order are probably keeping a close and watchful eye on us. But you know, hypothetically, if I were to recommend my own personal favorite villain, it might be Manfred Von Karma from Ace Attorney. The guy is irredeemably terrible, believing in not just results no matter the cost, but also a total disdain for nearly everyone around him since they most likely aren't as perfect as him.

For January's bloggers wanted prompt, just create a new community blog, start the title with "New Year's evil: [your blog title here]" and tell us about your favorite villains.

From the terrible like Flowey, to forces of nature like Gigyas. Go ham! We won't judge you since we're talking in hypotheticals. As long as we're talking about bad guys since Yoshikage Kira wasn't bad. Kira just wanted to live a peaceful life. He just happened to be a serial killer, you know?
