That damn slacker Phil saddled me with his caps too. GOD what a jerk. I'd never do that to anyone. AT ALL.

Anyway, because this is just me covering Phil's ass, and I barely have any time to spare right now, I'm not going to talk much.

One thing though:
Remember when I said last Thursday that Microsoft would be hearing from the Germans and the Scandinavians about the Xbox One?
Well don't I just love being right. (thanks, TheKodu!)

Peter Schaar, the German privacy commissioner, today expressed his concerns about the always-on Kinect. Not so much that it's always-on, he's not afraid of spying, but the fact that Microsoft may have some plans for storing certain kinds of data. Which, if true, doesn't sit well with EU privacy regulations either.
So that's one down already. Don't leave me hanging now, Swedes, Norwegians! You can do it!

And with that out of the way...euhm....
Fuck it, have some more pretty girls laughing.



* - Here's an interesting blog: rathowreck explores virtual representations of Philadelphia. Sadly, my knowledge of Philly literally doesn't go beyond "In West Philadelpia, born and raised".

* - Xbox One fits in an oven, 10/10.

P - ...since when do we have a GoForRainbow podcast? We're apparently up to episode 8 already.

A - Eight little piggies not happy with Xbox One. GameroomBlitz doesn't like always-on Kinect and DRM.

A - Nine little piggies not happy with Xbox One. Pixielated blames you. Would've 'sauced this if it wasn't for the hostility, because her points are valid.

A - Ten little piggies not happy with Xbox One, but Auggie offers suggestions for improvement.

A - Eleven little piggies not happy with Xbox One. It seems that TheKodu doesn't like any of it.

- So can we have bacon now?




- Wait, how the fuck did you get here?!

E - Last year, PK493 took bbain to the MCM Expo. This year it was Phil's turn. Look how much fun his avatar had!

R - A new review by TroyFullbuster, on New Super Mario Bros 2. The game's better than expected, seems like.

T - Tomb Raider might have been good gameplay-wise, but Nick didn't think it was written particularly well. Seems fair.

V - In honor of the announcement to announce (yeah...) a new Mario in the next Nintendo Direct, Mikki Saturn takes a look at where it all began.

T - While Sonic Team will always be synonymous with their blue hedgehog, they made some other cool games as well. Notably: NiGHTS Into Dreams.

F - PopetheRev likes anime a lot (a LOT) and has a list of recommendations which strangely lacks Death Note.

C - I thought this was funnier than it probably deserves. Then again, I devoted an entire caps to laughing about the Xbox One, so who am I to talk?

V - Xbox One is watching you. Every move you make, every bond you break, every step you take, it'll be watching you.

V - Even The Onion has an opinion on Xbox One.

C - CoffeeKnight spent huge dosh on Steam, but didn't play nearly every game. Ah, the plight of us all.

L - Okay, so this was actually pretty clever.



- She should totally smile more often. She's actually pretty cute when she smiles.

May you always find water and shade

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.
