Magic: The Gathering has taken over every goddamn corner of my life. I'm not really sure how this happened. Ever since my first game in 6th grade, MTG and I have had a severe on-again-off-again relationship, burgeoning every few years, only to dwindle into nothing within a few months. Now I've begun a recent resurgence, playing with my room mate, or finding time to play Duels of The Planeswalkers. Hell, I've begun to dream in MTG. Seriously, I had a dream where my movements were dictated by fucking Magic cards. This game is fucking lucid-dream-inducing crack, folks. And I love every second of it.

Ok, enough of the IRL games, lets get to some video games! In today's cblogs, we've got a shit...LOAD of introduction blogs, a new podcast to look forward to, and some really lame fail. Enjoy!

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?
