Happy Holidays everyone! Hope you all spent it with some loved ones, ate too much good food, and possibly got a good haul of presents as well. I know I did. :)

I've also decided to start a new Christmas tradition: watching the "Christmas With the Joker" episode of the Batman animated series. For those who have never seen it this is what you're missing out on:


Seeing as there was no Cblog recaps yesterday, I'll just do the ones starting with the beginning of Christmas day.


*- Randombullseye gives us Bonerquest
*- Yeah, I'm topsaucing my own cblog. On top of it being awesome and getting front-paged, it's a nice perk for doing recaps :p


S- Latest episode of dTunes, featuring SilverDragon1979's 12 days of Christmas song


E- Possibly late Persona 4 entry


S- eBay and Sony do a tag team on poor Edco
H- Darkknight37's basement setup, updated with new tv
C- NihonTiger90 looks back at 500 cblog posts
S- Some favourite game moments, but how did he get time to place all those proximity mines?


R- Castle Crashers review. Hella late, but at least they actually waited for that goddamn patch...
T- L4D community is nice, yay!
T- A top ten, and several other lists waiting to pounce on the unwary web-surfer
N- List of game translations that were released recently
R- Rather brief "review" of Tomb Raider Underworld
N- European VC releases. Yay, Secret of Mana!!


F- Fox owns rights to a Watchmen movie. Boo...
M- Insane Ian got 3rd place in some contest with this WoW song. Not bad
F- <3 Wallace and Gromit, and must see this
A- Same sketch that Krow linked to (below), but the link actually works


R- Sounds like Freefall got 12 games for Christmas... Cunt...
R- Another Christmas haul. Yay Batman animated series! <3
L- Failure on the GameTrailers forums
R- Yet another Christmas haul. Join us on FNF for TF2! :D
L- I'm a Canadian Dtoider! Gimme my present now damnit!
R- Christmas wishes, as only BigPoppaGamer can
V- Followup to the fail announcement post. Stream of a few good movies
C- Conspiracy theories and lack of avatars abound!


F- Apparently bad grammar and insults don't make people want to watch movies with you
S- Meh, video wasn't good when it was first released. Also, lolz for thinking the iPhone is a gaming system
F- If there was a Fail of the Day, this'd be it. Just the Digg link is enough to clinch it. Fuck Digg
S- I've never seen that before, but Hamza says they've always been there so I won't argue
F- Krow shows us why you apparently need to put a title in your cblog. Can't even link to the entry so just linking to their profile. Shame, as it's a nice sketch
F- Giant thread in the forums for just this thing buddy, but amazingly the community wasn't very harsh on them

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.
