Here is another call for your prospective recappers.

If you are intrestedin salving hours away with no real pay or compensation, you are just the person for the job.

If you are intrested in rambling a bit about border-line videogame related stuff and practice your writing, you are justthe person for the job.

Mostly though, if you are intrested in giving back to the dtoid community for a bit, then this is also the job for you.

fell free to volunteer in the comments below....

*-Team work and group projects are a big part of real life work and as such have an important role in college life. Its not all easy though, and Greenhornet214 shares some stories in where it gets rea bad.

A- Here is another community question from Marcel Hoang. What is your favorite swimming animation?

A- I realize now that I don't care about articles caring about Anita Sarkeesian as much as I don't care about Anita herself, and this blog by Dwavenhobble is one step to that realization. I also realized I don't care about diversity in games, besides diversity in mechanical terms and genres. This whole cultural war going on is so far off from my enjoyment of, say, Dark Souls 3, that I cannot belive anyone wastes their time on it.

B- I really like this blogger wanted prompt, as it inspires some tongue-in-cheek humor like this one about Nazi Bowser by genoforprez.

 

 

T- Giving back to dtoid, Boxed Swine writes a really good game about Minit, an indie game he won at one dtid giveaway. Great show.

T- With a bit of work, this blog by ChaunceyBoy can be much better than it is. It is an article about learning fro failures and such.

R- Back with another little-known PS3 gem, Kerrik52 reviews the little-appreciated El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, a game inspire by Jewish religious texts of all things.

R- For his next review, Kerrik52 went (nearly) mainstream with this excellent review of Nioh, a game I am yet to play but anticipate eventually trying.

 

 

F- This is a question that looks like some form of advertisment, there isn't enough context for me not to fail it.

F- I get the joke here, but I don't think it is presented well enough, or is long enough to be a blog.

ONE OF US, ONE OF US, ONE OF US
Anyway, here are the games I am currently playing. Those in bold I am going to review when completed:
  • No More Heroes (Wii).
  • Shining  Wisdom (Saturn).
  • Paper Mario: Color Splash (Wii U).
  • Dark Souls 3 (PS4).
  • Affordable Space Adventures (Wii U).
  • The Legend of Legacy (3DS).

Also, here are my latest reviews:

And Latest Blog in my "where the hell is...?" blog series"

Be Lucky

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.
