Hello all! If you didn't read the recap for Monday you might be wondering why I'm doing a Friday recap. No big deal really, just Garison and I switched days for this week. Sorry that it's on Saturday morning and not Friday night, but you know how Friday nights can be. ;)

Fairly interesting few weeks gaming wise. I traded in CoD4... again... and picked up Demigod. Completely agree with the review... great multiplayer game which is unfortunately hampered by the shitty Impulse service and inability to be successfully run through Steam. Honestly... if you're going to make a competitor to Steam at LEAST make it as good as Steam. Have more manageable friends list, ingame voice chat, instant messaging. I might not mind all this as much if I could run it through Steam, however while you technically can the Steam overlay doesn't work, which defeats the whole purpose.

Aside from that, I actually blogged again, talking about some trades I made recently through the Dtoid trading forum. I do have some more things I'd like to trade though, so I'll be making a new thread maybe today... assuming I can tear myself away from napping/video games.

Now if you'll excuse me, instead of catching up on sleep like I should be, I have some TF2 unlocks to get... Fucking Valve and their bullshit unlock systems...

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?
