C-blogs of 01-15-09 and ScottyGasms


Seems Left 4 Dead has been fixed somewhat. Actually was able to make it into a decent server on the first try, unlike Tuesday where we spent 45 minutes trying to get a decent server before giving up. I'm definitely liking the tweaks so far, although I haven't given versus a spin since the update.

Also, among other things I watched a monkey skating today!

*- Unangbangkay like to pay by himself... with others... Awesome writeup
*- MegaStryke reminises about playing video games with his dad. I love how Monthly Musings generally brings out such quality articles
*- Tehmtnlion continues his scary story

S- I'll call it a series at this point. Michiyoyoshiku plays Guilty Gear. Could use more in-depth impressions of the game
S- Latest dTunes, with a very upbeat selection. I like
S- A cool idea, GamingGoddess continues narrating her playthrough of Parasite Eve
S- Mikey draws sick fetishes on demand!

No contests once again, so enjoy this bonus video of bears actually playing hockey. I'm honestly not sure whether I should be amused or horrified, but I do know they need to pull that goalie. He's not even trying to stop anything!

D- Tubatic makes a call for feedback on cblog improvements
C- SurplusGamer sees the light on the benefits of renting games
F- Come out and play some more AMMO beta tomorrow night!
F- Call for a WipeoutHD FNF tourney tomorrow night. Be there!
C- TewDee organizes games he wants to finish/keep playing with his NEW KEYBOARD
I- Nice intro, and she made Daxelman go crazy. I'd say win-win
S- Pendelton21 give a general life/blogging update
E- LAN party recap, and too much energy drinks... I had a NOS once, and it gave me an irregular heartbeat for the rest of the evening...

N- Monster Hunter G news, and a special edition classic controller
N- Gemsi brings us the EU releases for the week
T- Jonathan Holmes wants to know if we think Dtoid is "anti-Wii"
N- Teta links to some Battlefront 3 footage that surprsingly isn't a RickRoll
T- BSD has Kraken-phobia, and also fails for not mentioning the FF1 Kraken...
T- Tubatic outlines why he plays his 360 more than his Wii
R- I'll refrain from calling this a series until #2 comes out. NihonTiger resurrects Bargain Bin Laden... sort of
N- How the hell is Mario Kart DS on the best selling games of 2008 list? :S
T- Thefil doesn't think anybody else is looking forward to these games

A- A very nice SMB cake^H^H^ oil painting
F- Sorry, but that gunfight looked really stupid...

C- Don't post a teaser with a link elsewhere for the whole article. Only reason this isn't fail is because it might be a good read...
V- Eminem's L4D advice apparently, although I assume he wasn't talking about L4D when he said that
O- History lesson from LaxLuster. The JRPG joke put it over the top for me
R- Something about hand-egg in Rockband. Don't care much for pro sports myself, but it is a nice use of the character creator
L- A Mega64 video that actually made me laugh. Very well done commentary about 1UP/EGM
C- Covah worries about FF release dates, and for some reason mentions fanboys?

F- An oddly coherent "drunken" "clog" full of delicious hypocracy
F- Seriously? More Obama-mania? I just popped a pimple that was more interesting than this (spoiler: it's currently bleeding)
F-Mark Gormley is from Florida, not "Canada's smallest province" dummy... Not a bad song though, even if the video is pretty bad :p
S- LOLFace didn't look just a few blogs down. Slightly redeemed by Droobies failing at trolling
F- Two fail blogs in one day, both buy the same person and both about the same topic... Am I the only one who's sick of hearing about Obama?

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.
