LONG BLOG

Cblogs from Feb 1st, 2018! And me talking about stuff about me!

   0

Hey guys, it's your buddy NeoTurbo with your recap of the Thursday cblogs! But first up time for some rambling!

You guys playing Monster Hunter World right now? It's pretty much consuming my life right now. My current no job-ness means I have all the time to play it and believe me, I have spent waaaaay too much time on it and (still plan too). I'm in high rank now and pretty much re-grinding to survive the new challenges.

Speaking of jobs, I've decided to get off my "barely supported financially by the government" ass and start trying to work again. I was recommended a place called Alberta Job Corp that helps people like me who've been out of work for awhile get working again. I start later this month! It would be nice to be comfortable financially again.

In other news, I'm house sitting next week! Two friends of mine are getting married this month (yay!), but I wasn't able to go (booo!). But I guess they needed someone to watch the house for insurance reasons, so I'm just going to live there for a week and eat all their food. Fun times!

Alright, time for the recaps!



R - Here Oculin gives us his rundown of Kirby: Battle Royale. Is it a great new play with friends game? I guess you better read to see!

R - Furrybearpanda tells us what he thinks of Dragonball Fighter Z. Spoilers; lots of gushing is involved.

L - dephoenix has his monthly book of the month, this time featuring Not Quite the Classics by Colin Mochrie. I'm a huge fan of the guy, so I think I need to check this book out.

Well that was another edition of the Thursday recap! Tune in next week to see if I accidentally burned my friends house down!

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.
