C-Blog recaps of 12/29/12 + 12/30/12 + 12/31/12 + First Philgasms of '13


HAPPY NEW YEAR! Holy crap. It's going to be the same stuff, yet somehow worse again! Anyways, did all see that awesome article that Smurfee put together (feat. art by ChillyBilly)? IT WAS ABOUT YOU GUYS. Yes, yes, we all loves yous heathens. Alright, this is going to be short and sweet. I'm doing Smurfee's and all my own caps.

Before I go though. If you even sort of like survival games, are curious, or just dig the art, buy Don't Starve off of Steam. You get 2 copies right now, due to it still being in beta, but already it's packed with content and features and just keeps getting better. Oh and it's updated every two weeks on the dot, usually. Alright, I'm done pimping my newest obsession. HAPPY EFFIN NEW YEAR! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Oh and my girl Willow? Immune to fire damage AND my girl automatically starts fires at night. Mmmm Hmmm.

Alright folks, I know the past two weeks was the holidays and stuff. i know we have all been busy as hell. But I've noticed a lot of good stuff, not getting love here in the c-blogs. I know disqus is a cunt on mobiles. I know we can't fap from some mobiles as well. But we have to support each other or great writers and folks are going to disappear thinking we don't appreciate their hard work. Fap and if you can't or don't think it deserves it, comment. I was thinking about this already and then read TellEmOff88TellEmOff's intro and decided to dedicate my last section to it. Let's do a better job from here on out and into 2013. Let's make the C-Blogs the best place on Dtoid. Oh, wait.... WE ALREADY ARE! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. But seriously, support each other. Happy New Year, my loves. Oh and sorry about the crappy formatting. It's too late and I'm too intoxicated to care! Boosh!

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.
