I'll be back to less stark, mechanically functional recaps soon enough. Going through some stuff, and some things. Don't have a single moment of desire for any kind of creativity or levity.

Poop.

I hope that made you laugh, it's the best I can do right now.

* - I want these on my wall.

* - I feel automatically compelled to topsauce some members here. In fairness, I always read the blogs first. I topsauced this one after being wary of topsaucing it based on the fact that Occams wrote it and I love him. But then I topsauced it anyways because it was great. Funny how these things work.

S - The second part of a very cool new series.

A - Some people like Dark Souls, and other people are COMMUNISTS. But in all honesty, this is a pretty fair look at Dark Souls from the perspective of someone who isn't just a raving fanboy...and a Communist.

A - A neat look at risk and reward systems, specifically those in the roguelike genre.

M - Some musings about 2012.

M - More o' that, and BRAAAINS

M - Lots of musings this month.



T - A neat look at Steams new TV oriented interface.

T - Some short thoughts on Braid.

L - Yes, a DS emulator would be helpful to all. Oh wait - if you want to steal DS games, you could just get an R4 or something. Or just not be a dick and buy them since they cost about as much as the gum I spit on the ground last night. But whatevs.

R - Some *yawn* thoughts about......zzzflurgh, sorry, Ahem. Star Wars *nnnnggg* Old rep *yawn* ublic.

R - zzzzzzz......

R - And more stuff. About stuff.

F - I suggest using the Wii U to drop on small crabs at the beach. It is an excellent crushing device for small crabs. Alternatively, you could rip the guts out of it, and use it as a home for said crabs if you are against the crushing of small crabs. I find that crushing the crabs into a fine paste first makes them much easier to can for later consumption. But the choice is yours, really. I'm sure the Wii U has other functions also, but I mostly just use mine to crush and eat small shelled beach denizens.

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.
