I recently got back into playing the first Theme Park game. It was this morning when I realised I'd been playing the game for over 5 hours and still hadn't gotten out of bed that I realised I may have something of an addiction going on. Especially when it took me another 2 hours to actually stop playing.

PSA, if you are somewhat lacking in money right now here's a little piece of prime advice.

DO NOT OPEN STEAM!

Seriously, the Steam winter sale (on until Jan 7th) is the sort of good that makes anal sex seem poor by comparison. If you're in the UK then here's a few prime picks, Braid, Audiosurf, Evil Genius and STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl are all under 2 each. There's a shitton of other stuff under 2 and an entire section for sub-4 stuff (including Defense Grid, Mirror's Edge and the hilarious Time Gentlemen Please) so if you're a little strapped for cash you should maybe check that bit out at least. Some deals are changing every day, I believe you can get GTA4 for 5 for a few more hours.

So basically, if you've missed any PC exclusive game over the last 10 years, here's a nice cheap way of catching up. There's also the Good Old Games winter sale as well, their entire catalogue is still discounted and I highly recommend RPG fans check out Septerra Core while it's on the cheap.

Anyway, that's my bit for this week. Have an excellent Christmas everyone and I'll see you next week.

Oh yeah, also The Journalism Show with Geraldo Beedog is quite possibly the funniest thing I've seen on the internet all year. Except maybe people getting butthurt over Jim Sterling being Jim Sterling. People who know what his humour is like and pretty much rode his coattails to where they are today. Mentioning no names of course.

*ahem*

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
New Years Evil

So for this month's prompt, we should look to our best examples of scum and villainy. Talk about your favorite antagonists, villains, bad guys, and malcontents and why you like them so much. Certainly not because you want to be like them since the powers of law and order are probably keeping a close and watchful eye on us. But you know, hypothetically, if I were to recommend my own personal favorite villain, it might be Manfred Von Karma from Ace Attorney. The guy is irredeemably terrible, believing in not just results no matter the cost, but also a total disdain for nearly everyone around him since they most likely aren't as perfect as him.

For January's bloggers wanted prompt, just create a new community blog, start the title with "New Year's evil: [your blog title here]" and tell us about your favorite villains.

From the terrible like Flowey, to forces of nature like Gigyas. Go ham! We won't judge you since we're talking in hypotheticals. As long as we're talking about bad guys since Yoshikage Kira wasn't bad. Kira just wanted to live a peaceful life. He just happened to be a serial killer, you know?
