Oh, sweet merciful Lord, Darksiders. Darksiders, Darksiders, Darksiders. I never thought I could have such a boner for a game. It’s just…a game made for gamers. Everything good about gameplay from fucking EVERYTHING is in here. Christ, they put a Star Fox/ Panzer Dragoon level in it, for absolutely no reason. This has been my curse, my obsession for the past few days. I'm sorry if you're not into the game, because you are seriously missing out on just pure unadulterated fun. Yes, it is buggy, and the story blows, and blah blah blah. Forget all of that; this game is just SO. FUCKING. FUN. that none of it really matters. Again, sorry to gush on about this, but…AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHRUINVOIDWALKERSAMAELKILLINGBATSAAAAAHHHHHHHHH.

While I not-so-quietly lose my sanity, let’s get to the recaps. Today, we have two Dtoid regulars hate-fucking each other over various blogs, mass killings made fun, and, of course, waffles.



*- A re-introduction to the great DtoidEurope group!

*- A blog that will make you actually think a game about the Spanish Civil War would be pretty cool.

*- This blog is about nothing but waffles.

*- A refreshing blog about spending the night with Crash Bandicoot, with no rape involved at all.

*- Let’s go look at the past of gaming with some old bastard!

*- Here’s an interesting and somewhat sad blog about the passing of DarwinMayflowers internet friend.

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.
