So demos, today I played the Modnation Racers PSP one and you know what, I think provided they put all the creative stuff for Karts and Mods in this version of the game this could actually outclass its PS3 big brother. I'm certainly more entertained by the AI here than I was by the beta AI. Sure online play takes a hit but provided I can still use downloaded tracks I'm fine with that. Only problem is removing the option to auto-decorate a track makes the track creator a bit unnecessarily fiddly if you're going for something awesome. I can't see myself tweaking a track for hours on the PSP like I can for the PS3 version. Weirdly I reckon I'll end up getting both, a grand testiment to Sony's dedication to putting their major franchises on both their formats. Hopefully this is how things'll work for the PSP now, since Modnation PS3 and PSP are both out at the same time. I'm looking forward to them certainly.

Things I've found porn of today, the 5th gen starter Pokemon (all 3 of them) and the MALE 5th gen Pokemon trainer. Also Nick Clegg/David Cameron slash. Internet, you never fail me.

Oh yeah, and Portal's free now. GO DOWNLOAD IT.

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.
