Well, I don't have much to say other than the inFamous demo was amazingly incredible. I've always been a huge fan of the Sly Cooper games, and as an action-whore, this game really delivers. Sure, it could have been fleshed out in regards to a few areas, but it's fun!

I also found a new show to pick up. Strangely, I've never seen The Wire. I'm like 4 episodes into the first season, and I'm loving it. I understand that many critics regard it as the "best show ever made", so if you like crime dramas, watch it!

Oh, and I made a stupid joke regarding Killzone 2's optional controls. Disregard it!

Oh look another rockin' power metal song!


*-Did Y0j1mb0 just predict Jet Set Radio Online? Hell yea!.
*-Chef Pendleton wants to tickle your taste-buds, then rape them.


M-Ooh, baby, do you know what that's worth ? Ooh Tran-syl-vania is a Place on Earth!
P-Pocketoid Episode 1 Records Tonight!
A-Wry Guy asks: "What's with all the Wii hate?"


E-OMG a contest! Walrus want's you to MSPaint yourself to a 50% off Demigod coupon.


E-bahs gives us more amazing Destructoid Trading Card Game goodness!


F-CrocBox will be showing Mystery Science Theater 3000 on Sundays. Sounds cool to me!
M-Ever wanted more FFVI fan-work? 4knuckleshuffle promises to deliver...hard.
M-Music....overload...If you can take youtube embed after embed, Analoge will make you want to play all these games over again.
M-Ani-Wednesday is streaming Zoids, Escaflowne, and one of my all-time favorites, GTO, compliments of Genji-JAM. GTO is about a badass ex-motorcycle gang member that becomes a teacher: with hilarious results!.


T-Some more thoughts on Rapeplay...again
T-Killzone 2 is a clingly slut.
N-unangbangkay has matlocked some photos of attractive anime women for your viewing "pleasure".
T-Wan Sum Dung reminds us how awesome Paper Mario was.
T-Only the hardcore GBA-ers remember this puppy. Durga AI reminds me of an awesome backlight.
T-Another day, another "Should I buy Cross Edge" blog. Tell Covah how awesome it is.
T-It wouldn't be a day on the blogs without more Zippyduda MGS speculation.
T-Slash watermelons and Tengu heads while avoiding bombs on the DS! Wait what? NihonTiger90 has the details.


R-Zippyduda posts one of those Livejournal-ist "things to do before you die" checklists, and I don't know what to think of it!
R-Kojima secretly has another counter, for his counter, which in turn, was a counter for a counter!
R-Mr PORC gives us random videos of random stuff that's "back by popular demand". Maybe this was before my time?


F-FinnE is a "first generation gamer", and Lost Odyssey is his first JRPG. Zuh?
F-Cyber Altair could have made gametoid, but his name and failure prevented it.



Ding! Blogs are done: just sit back, relax, and put some head-phones on:

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.
