Oh my God you guys. I've been waiting for tomorrow, March 31st, for fucking months. Mega Man 10 FINALLY comes out for XBLA, and I couldn't be more excited. My Mega Man tattoo is at the ready, my controllers are charged up, and I have 4 cans of Mega Man E-Tank energy drink at the fucking ready. I am very excited to play through this motherfucker multiple times over the next few days until I master it as I did with MM9. I am way, way to...tired to explain my enthusiasm; just know that my level of happiness will be about as much as an orgasm mixed with my enemies' heads on a pike on my lawn. WOOOOOOOO!

And in tonight's recaps, we've got pie, crackers, and jokes about Oscar Wilde to entertain you tonight. Have fun.



*- Seriously, enough with the fucking Citizen Kane shit.

*- Oh Lord that's an impressive pie-eating contest.

*- Enkido talks about the state of consoles in the industry.



M- Something about sex: OH GOD BIRDO.

M- Something about sex: Are Link and Zelda doing it?

P- The SEGA Addicts podcast records tonight. They're talking about beat-em-ups!



E- MASSIVE WALL OF PICS AHEAD: Check out Pandaloons' excursion pictures of PAX East.

R- DanielCampbell gives us his review of Yakuza 3...in video form!

T- Jackie Murray has fallen out of love with Modern Warfare 2.

T- Gamers are really just hedonists at heart.

T- God of War 3 may be pretty, but mjemirzian still thinks the combat blows.

D- Jesus: The RPG? Yes please!



L- Because of sarcasm.

L- What is this I don't even



F- "Ok, it seems I failed" is right.

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.
