C blog Recaps of 10/22/12 + mcgeeisms

   0

Whoa what? I died again. That's like...several times that's happened. Despite the community destroying me on a regular basis, I'm back for another mcgeeism/recap thingamajigg. I have some cool thoughts for you, but they're really not in order. Or even coherent. So let's skip that, eh? Another time for nonsense.

For now, capital recappings of Monday's bloggingkins. I will point out, without any sort of bias probably, that the Recaps team started a podcast. There was a trial tun of sorts which actually made it as an episode, and it's down there under Wordtoid. Unfortunately (maybe,) I was sort of busy during the weekend, so my sexy self isn't on the 'cast. Quite a shame for you all. But, we have the much better PhilKenSebben, Wrenchfarm, and leader StriderHoang (which is pronounced Strider HOH-ANG-EE) to soothe your souls.

So grab some whiskey, put your headphones on, start that podcast, and read some blogs by the fireplace. Because your fireplace is definitely by your PC. It's only logical. Mine is, so in case I get mad at the internet, I can throw something into a fire. That's what everyone does, right? Yes, correct. You get an B+.

CAPS in steree-eree-O.


* - Silent protaganists are very commonplace, but should they be? What circumstnaces make it okay to be a mute? Speak up, readers!

* - KingSigy takes a hard look at himself, and realizes he not only cheated (meh; not a big deal IMO,) but lost some of what made gaming special to him.

A - AbsoultePoppycock is making his high school newspaper much better by writing these articles. Check out his first: Are Videogames Art?

P - Another new podcast for that ass! (They seem to be cropping up all over the place, don't they?) This is full of weirdos, like most Dtoid podcasts, but the twist is it's more focused on the Cblogs themselves! Also, since it's all Recappers, I demand we have Beyamor as a semi-regular. So I can get a semi, regularly.



C - Still going on! Last chances to win some Resident Evil!

I - A new Dtoider for us to abuse! Not really. Loonywoman sounds like she'll fit in just fine. Because loony.

S - Sweatmode is back and has some updates for us about his life and indie dreams.

S - MeanderBot takes tasty pics at PAX 2012.

R - CarbonRevenge reviews Rollercoaster Tycoon 3D and it depresses the hell out of me.

A - I really like the way BeatBeat draws Mr. Destructoid. Go tell him you want some shirt designs!





F - Sadly, my Spanish has just gotten worse over the years. (Suck it, France.)

F - Even IF hockey was fun to watch, this would be spam. Spam4Always.

F - This bot has captured my heart and dropped my jaw. UltrasoundUltrasound.

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.
