I'm still trying to figure out what the prize should be for my Destructoid March Madness Tournament Bracket Contest I'm hosting. I have gone to a couple of game stores looking for ideas, but I haven't come up with anything good yet. I know I want it to be video game related, and I would really like it to be tied into basketball somehow. At first I thought a great prize would be a copy of Double Dribble for the NES. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find a copy of one yet. I then thought about a copy of Mario 3vs3 Basketball for the Nintendo DS, but I'm not sure everyone has a DS. Suffice to say, I'm having a hard time and I need your help. If you have any ideas please let me know. I really want there to be a prize for this contest.

Well I don't have much else to say, so let's get on with the recap 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?
