Cblogs from Jan.25 2018 + Videogame weapons are awesome!

   0

Hey guys it's NeoTurbo back again with this weeks recap of the Thursday cblogs! But first of it's the weekly ramble.


WARNING: WRITER IS CURRENTLY ON COLD MEDICINE. RAMBLING MAY PROCEED LONGER OR SHORTER THAN ANTICIPATED. HE FEELS PRETTY AWESOME THOUGH. FOOD ALSO TAKES WEIRDLY BETTER THAN NORMAL.

Well it's MHW weekend folks! As I write this those lucky jerks with digital copies and in other time zones (You know who you are!) are starting their hunting careers. Meanwhile I'm expecting my copy in the mail tomorrow on release date like an honorable hunter. Though as soon as I get my copy I am going to Charge Blade sooooo much!


In other personal gaming news, I now have a new favorite weapon in Warframe! The Corinth is a sweet pump-action shotgun that just got added in this weeks Ghoul Purge update. It has the highest critical hit chance/dmg of all the shotguns, and makes that amazingly satisfying *chick-chick* sound with every shot. It even has an alt-fire, shooting a grenade that explode after about 20m of uninterrupted flight. It is basically the best. I love it so much.




LOOK AT IT!! IT'S SO COOL!!

Huh? Wha? Sorry, I blanked out for a second there. Anyway, this has been in the end a pretty successful week. Got some money issues temporarily sorted, planning making some more croquettes this weekend, and I made a new DnD character for after my last guy died. He's a scout, he does drive-bys with a repeating crossbow. He's pretty rad. And if all goes well, I'll be starting job training next week!

Alright I think that's good for now. On to the recaps!

* - It's Comments of the Week! Did you make it this time? I know Greenhornet214 didn't! (Don't worry man, I didn't either)



C - It's always nice to get inspiration, and here Keiichi Morisato relays to us a bit about how Steins Gate is doing just that! Check it out and keep an eye out for his future endeavors!

T - Good buddy and personal backlog nagger Kerrik52 gives us the run down of his time with the PS3! Gets props from me for mentioning some fun cult classics like Shadows of the Damned and Folklore!

T - Lord of the throne Dere reminds us relationship-less people that Valentine is just around the corner (Booo!), by telling all the gaming related things he loves! (Yaaaaay!)




Welp! That's it for me this week! Have a great weekend and Happy Hunting!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

The heel-turn

Last week, in the quick posts of Destructoid's community, we saw the rise and fall of community manager Wesley J. Russow. He rose to prominence with his immutable power, only to see it come crashing down as the working class clambered beneath him and tore him down. Truly, the life and times of Westopher G. Raggamuffins was a lesson in live fast, burn hot, crash spectacularly.

Wes went from community darling to lovable despot over the course of a few days. It was a thing of beauty to behold. Truly, nothing is better to witness than a real-life heel turn. Wrestling is nothing without these terms after all. A "Face" is a good guy wrestler who fights the man, stands up for the little guy, and fights fairly while still winning. A "Heel", on the other hand, is a despicable, dastardly villain or even anti-hero. I loved Kurt Angle's antics as this gold medal Olympic winner turned wrestler who wasn't necessarily as likable as his gold medals imply. I loved hating that guy! A good heel is fun to hate, and there's nothing quite like the gasp of shock when watching the turn, when a face uses dirty tricks and turns into a heel.

Let me ask you this: is Kratos a hero? Before we see Kratos return in what I'd call Dad of War, let's not forget Kratos’ sordid past as a hero. In the first game, it was a revenge tale. It was a story of a mythical Spartan warrior who wanted revenge on the God of War who betrayed him. But as the series went on, it became a story about the lengths Kratos would go to justify his vendetta against people who wronged him. He would literally destroy the world just to destroy his enemies. Sure, we played as him, and we were taken on a ride, but would you really put your bet behind him and say, "Yeah, look at that hero!"

This month's Bloggers Wanted is about your favorite heel-turns or anti-heroes (in case a heel turn is too specific). Do you like it when Ryu turns into Evil Ryu? Or maybe you like Injustice, with its built in heel-turn Superman? I won't claim to understand the time line of Revolver Ocelot between Snake Eater and Guns of the Patriots, but I love that knucklehead.

To participate, just start a blog in our community section and title it "Heel-turn: [your blog title here]." Write to your heart's content, and if its up to snuff, you'll see your stuff published on the front page! Just remember, you're telling us about your favorite heel-turns and anti-heroes, not becoming one yourself, like Wes. Rest in spaghetti, never forghetti.
