FUCK. YES.

Ladies and gentlemen, color me excited.

For the first time in a damn long time, I'm gonna have a friggin' Snow Day tomorrow! Now I will unfortunately be spending most of my time catching up on schoolwork and being generally boring. But I think I might take some time out for games. I happen to have 3 that I'm about to finish. So I leave it up to you, grand Dtoid community, to tell me what to finish tomorrow. Should I finish Sam and Max Season 2 Ep. 3, The Saboteur, or Saint's Row 2? Try and make my tomorrow interesting, folks.

Alright, onto the recaps. Tonight we've got some unappreciated games getting the Topsauce treatment, the gayest podcast ever, and



*- Tournament results for Fatal Destructoid '98.

*- UglyDuck gives us a great review of the great indie game Icycle.

*- Good Sir Holmes pops in to let us know about some incredible Wiiware titles released this week.

*- Things need to be fixed in the AvP multiplayer. Skribble has a list of those things. I think it is a pretty good list. Yay.

*- This great Monthly Musing talks about how VGFreak1225 is fascinated with a man made of porcelain.

*- Of course, now Dtoid has a legal drama cblog series: MechaMonkey talks about Nintendo v. That Austrailian Pirate on the awesome new VGLaw.

*- The truest blog post I have ever seen on Dtoid.

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.
