Hello all.  Dere is back and recapping.  So I'm not.talking about video games this week in the recap so you'll just have to deal with it!

So it's been a crazy couple weeks.  I'm not a home owner which is equal parts awesome and absolutely terrifying.  I'm now totally 100% into fixer upper projects.  I used to hate doing any kind of that work, but now I can't get enough.  It's exciting to see these projects come to fruition.

Another thing that makes it cool is I'm accomplishing things!  I always had the habbit of not being able to finish things.  Seriously, until recently the only thing I usually finished was a nice wanking session and that was if I finished before I fell asleep.  So it's a pretty awesome change.  I love having the house and I love doing the work. 

I may have some times where I'm not as active on here no folks, but you'll survive.  Just picture my hairy bum and expanding stomach and all your fapping needs will be met.  Now to recap!

* - Somethingwittyandfun is speaking directly to me. He knows my heart and he knows my mind. I like him have lots of trouble finishing games. For one reason or another, I just usually don't finish games even if I enjoy them. Hopefully someday we will both get the help we need

* - Greenhornet214 gives us an awesome look at his choice for ranking the dungeons in Ocarina of Time. I have to say his ranking is pretty darn good. Such an awesome game and I loved going through this and remembering all the fun I had. Thank you Green Hornet!

M - I have not hopped on the Warframe train yet. It really does look like a lot of fun but I haven't taken the plunge as of yet. Gamemaniac3434 rips off Strider here and looks at Warframe for part of this month's bloggers wanted. It is a very good read

E - Pixie the Fairy would like to gauge some interest around Dtoid in starting a group with regards to Final Fantasy XIV. With the new update, this makes that much more feasible. If you're interested in starting a crew, stop by and give a holler

T - Adzuken like all of us has those gaming guilty pleasures. For him, it was the Army Men series. However he can't even look past what he calls the worst game he has ever played. Army Men: World War: Land Air Seas. This game does look quite bad. Plus the title is an annoyance

N - Shoggoth2588 has recently been playing through some of that there Xenoblade Chronicles 2. I've heard a lot about this game and a lot of different opinions. Shoggoth gives us lots of information and a very informative piece on his Shoggy thoughts. A good read indeed

R - The Saturn has a list of top 100 games for the system and Lord Spencer gives some quick thoughts and also some of his reviews for games 100-91. Can we give some props to Lord Spencer please. He puts out tons of reviews and thoughts on many a game and still has time to work as a recapper. The man is quite impressive

T - Hard to believe Mortal Kombat has been around for 20 something years. Man do I feel old. I love the series though and so does Wes Tacos. Wes wants some spin off ideas, the crazier and dumber the better. I have some in my mind but they generally involve Sub Zero and of the erotic nature

T - Adzuken takes a look at another game that is one of the worst he has ever played. Ghostbusters for the NES. Again this game looks pretty dreadful. Thanks for the warning Adzuken

T - Salador breaks out their first blog here and goes over why he likes and plays football (soccer) games. Glad to see Salador join the blogging ranks and I loved reading this and being able to get to know them better

F - Codefreak gives us the top 5 theories regarding what may come after Infinity War. Just a warning, there are spoilers if you haven't seen the movie and still want to

V - MDSW gives us a trailer for Dancer Without Head. A little description might be nice

Just remember, he who stands on toilet, is high on pot--Dere

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.
