I hope you all had a good Valentine's Day. For my girlfriend and I, this was the first Valentine's Day for us since we moved in together, and it was pretty awesome to be honest with you. I got her a WiiFit, which she was extremely excited to get. She had been bugging me about getting one for her for a while now. I have to say that so far I have had a good time messing around with it. I might share more thoughts on it later, but for now she's happy I got it and that's all that really matters.

In other video game related news, the Circuit City by my house has increased their game liquidation discount to 40%, so I went out this week and bought Shadow of the Colossus and Metroid Prime 3 for 40% off. That's pretty awesome if you ask me. They still have a ton of PS3 and XBOX360 games, so I'm gonna check back in a week or two to see if their discount has increased even more. I might have to buy some other games if it gets as high as 50%-60% off.

Well let's get to the recaps shall we ....

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?
