Hi all. Exam next week. European law. Bucket-loads of material. Difficult. No time. CAPS.

“Cassis de Dijon.”

Yes, brain, I know about the Cassis case.

Keck and Mithouard.”

Yes, I know about that one too.

“Commission v. Italy.”

Stop it.

“Groenveld.”

SHUT UP.

“Conegate.”

You’re hurting me!

“Alpine Investments.”

OH GOD THE VOICES ARE EVERYWHERE.

GET OUT OF MY HEAAAAA-



* - Do used game sales harm the industry, or is that more of a campfire story trying to scare is into buying new? DoTheTwist thinks the latter, and offers up some very interesting alternative money making schemes.

A - Right after DoTheTwist's blog, SirAlex highlights Total Biscuits video AGAINST used sales.

A - GoForRainbow loves being a pirate and tries to make piracy sound good. Will he succeed?

S - In what seems like it's going to be a massive series, TheKodu looks at Tropes vs. Women.









N - I had completely missed the announcement of this game, but TronKim tells us something about Panapticon: Freedom Wars. Sounds really cool!

A - Help me out here and convince Pope to tell us more about his Mega Man 25th Anniversary artbook. It looks like a great book and he sounds like a big fan, so there must be things to say! Also Roll upskirt.

F - Apparently Fast & Furious 6 doesn't make a lick of sense. Who'da thunk?

V - I like the idea of this Super Metroid video, but the delivery is kinda shit.

L - Goddammit Dixon, I told you to stay indoors while zombies are on the loose! Well, I guess we're leaderless now, we're fucked.

F - A game that was being made...is still kind of being made. How was this news again?

F - There is promoting your Kickstarter idea, and then there is begging for money. The former is fine, up to an extent. This is not.

F - Complaining about a forum we don't even know about people we don't know from someone we don't really know.

F - Okay, I gave the Super Metroid video the benefit of the doubt, but you really need to stop posting these.

F - He's not lying when he says "a quick word".

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.
