C Blog Recaps of 02/04/13 + mcgeeisms


Late CAPS around this piece. The Cappers have been busy with this & that, but we should be back on track now. Especially since we recorded a new Fapcast within a decent time frame of the last one. It's...uh...great! Yeah; great stuff. It actually felt really weird after such a long break from 'casting. It should be up soon for your crusty ears.

Since I didn't talk much about what I was doing on said podcast (constant outside interruptions,) I figure I'll say a few words on it.
I feverishly played through the entirety of Little Inferno on the Wii U. That game really resonated with me. There's some messages that are pretty obvious, but a lot of little things keep you thinking. Thinking things like, "Momma always said I was a pyro." Joking aside, it's something that everyone should experience. If you like World Of Goo, I think you can at least appreciate Little Inferno. The gameplay is really simple, but fun. That and price point may be part of what it's attempting to say, so not everyone will be into it. Go read Jonathan Holmes' review, as he sums most of it up pretty well.

I also finished The Walking Dead. Bad times were had.


* - SouthwallCornerClub (and Chechosaurus,) get into some theories about two iconic characters from Dark Souls: Ornstein and Smough.

* - Bronze Kettle busts down the door with this intro. He gets deep into why RTS games just seem to be fading away. Kind of sad, but filled with some truth. Go say hello.

* - Awesome intro (finally) from Roberto Plankton.

T - CaimDark thinks perhaps EA isn't supporting the Wii U as strongly as they talked about doing because of Origin, or the lack thereof. I wouldn't say it's implausible.

T - scarritt braves Okami's most difficult challenge, and cheats using modern technology. CHEATS!

R - RoboLeader has some nice succinct mini-reviews.

T - pk fire sure as shit didn't like the end of Persona 4.

? - My Enourmous Hairy Downstairs Kitchen tries to make some friends by taking his clothes off. An effective strategy, in my experiences.

L - Believe it or not, George isn't at home. Poor Zombie Orwell.

F - Word.

F - Extra VR missions as DLC, when there are already VR missions on-disc. What's the dealio?

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.
