I am a sad panda today. Well, I should say I was, because all the tequila and blended strawberries in my system are actually making me chipper. Nontheless, I no longer have Xbox Live. My spring semester of school has ended, and now I’m back home, where I’m relegated to stealing wireless from my neighbors, because our only internet connection is my father’s, and God help me if I should ever touch it. So, to all my L4D/Peggle friends, I’d like to say I loved all the great times with you these past few months, and don’t forget about me: I’ll be back up and running August 15th.

Ok, with that out of the way, onto everyone’s favorite concentrated community blog post! In today’s recap, we’ve got a Mexican bee who’s got a penchant for reporting, the first mention of Sega Channel on the cblogs that I can remember, and NO FAIL! ARIBA!

Cblogs: insert witty phrase here.

(P.S. To get you in the mood of this festive Cinco De Mayo, here's some great music to enjoy during your recap)




*-A fantastic article pointing out the flaws in the current game-pricing model every company seems keen on (btw, a 60-hr God of War would be awesome).

*-Wow, check out Mentok’s rather hefty video game collection. AND IT’S ONLY PART ONE!

*-Don’t hate, get funky: why Toejam and Earl in Panic on Funkotron is awesome.

*-JOURNALISMO.

*-Oh man, some GORGEOUS Ryu and Kid Icarus ink on display here.

*-God, I’ve gotta get to Maryland sometime, especially if there’s some hot Dtoid karaoke going on.

*-OH GOD THE BEST BOSS BATTLE MUSIC EVAR.

*-If you’re a Freetar Hero lover, check this out; a gigantic song pack made by Vendicardi2

*-The first of this month’s Monthly Musings that I really love, a look at the Hyrule of Ocarina of Time.

*-And here’s another great MM: alternate realities of Earth.

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.
