I spent this evening in an itchy sweater depicting 2 gentlemen fishing for large-mouth bass.

A friend of mine is moving to New Mexico for a few months. She’s the kind of friend who enjoys it when her friends do weird and stupid shit. So I had the idea of doing ugly sweater pics with a handful of friends. If you’ve never done anything like that with your close group of friends, reconsider. It’s a fucking awesome time acting like complete jackasses, especially when the end result of jackassery is great photos like this:







Jesus Christ, it’s days like today that make me fall in love with the community. We have probably the most Topsauced blogs ever, discussion about Disney villains, and a little Fail to piss in your coffee. Enjoy.



*-So Chad Concelmo made a list of the best Disney villains, which stevenxonward added to, and ace of knaves got pissed about.

*-Xzyliac continues his incredible series on bands grossly under-represented in Rock Band.

*-Togail. Do I need to say anything further?

*-Elsa helps to make the season bright with these fucking awesome Christmas traditions. I am SO TOTALLY doing the Christmas journal!

*-Ali D takes a great in-depth look at a game I just finished, Dead Space, in light of the sequel announcement.

*-Arkhon defends Rock band and Guitar Hero in the best way possible.

*-Technophile attempts to get a Dtoid WoW guild going, and muses about his time in Azeroth.

*-A wonderful selection of indie shmups, presented by Diverse.

*-Sevil Monthly Muses about the game stories that pull a Fonzie towards the end.

*-randombullseye expounds on his hatred for getting rid of games, either by trading or borrowing.

*-If you didn’t catch it on the front page, here’s an account of the Dtoid UK crew taking over the Capcom Christmas party.



S-Wanna see some pics of a PS3 Slim and a cute puppy?

S-Nick Chester tells us something we already knew.

M-Love/Hate: The scary side of gaming.

P-Remember how nice it was not having FAILCAST record last week? Well, sadly those liars are back to try and record again.



S-nekobun takes the reins for his 2nd day of dTune-age.



V-Miss any of the No More Heroes 2 virals? Check out this great compendium from ShadesofDante.

T-mollygos loves Majora’s Mask, and if you read her blog, you probably will too.

T-What’s your opinion on custom soundtracks for games? Check out GiftofGab’s blog on the subject.

F-Xzyliac was right.

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.
