Cblogs from Feb. 15 and 22!


Hey guys! It's another week, and another recap with me! Did you miss me? Sorry about that, I had some technical difficulties while house sitting one week, was busy last week. But I'd like to give SrChurros a shout out for covering for me last minute when I realized my predicament that first week. You are a bro!

So...House-sitting! It was pretty okay! I played a bunch of Monster Hunter, ate their food and DIDN'T set ANYTHING on fire. Not even once! Especially not those paper napkins when I was figuring out the gas stove. That definitely NEVER happened. And if it ever did happen I would like to point out they would have been immediately put out after a brief millisecond of thinking "Goddammit I actually did set a fire". So everything is fine, and will always be fine.

Anyway! I've been doing pretty swell. Started a employment program this week. I get paid during it and the goal is to have a permanent job by the end of it. Just finished the last orientation day, and on Monday I'll be working at the local sorting facility for Goodwill. So here's hoping this leads to better things, and helps me "get back out there" or whatever that means!

Anyway, enough about me. There's cblogs to recap!

* - We get a touching tale of friendship and comradery from davidjenkins. Why hunt alone when you can hunt together?

R - Xeo gives us the lowdown on what he thinks the the new Secret of Mana remake. Is it good enough to satisfy his fanboy heart?

T - MountainBlade cleaves right to the point on his thoughts on brand recognition in the gaming industry. Short, sweet and to the point definitely give it a read.

T - Here we got a quick blurb from IloveMGS about the TF2 Jungle Inferno update. If you're still playing, be sure to give a read!

F - Wanna get a quick rundown on Triggers new mech anime, Darling in the Franxx? JuIc3 has the goods! PersonallY also like it alot, but be sure to check out what he thinks!

Alright that's it for me! I hope you guys have a great weekend!

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.
