C Blogs of 03/25/13 + mcgeeisms


MMMMMMMMMMMMMMONDAAAAAAY. What's going on 'Toiders? How is this fine Monday evening treating you? I hope well! Not a huge blog day (not complaining) today. I wonder of people are just waiting for a certain game to release/pre-load...Hmmmmmm...

Personally, I really want to play it, but will have to just Gamefly it for now. Blame Monster Hunter. This week, I've sort of floated back into Skyrim, and boy do I enjoy that game. Some of the quests are just so well-crafted. And the world is just...well; you know. It's been out for awhile. I'm probably gonna grab that Hearthfire real soon.
Besides the obvious way-too-much MH3U, I also rented Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. I was worried that the game wouldn't be "Metal Gear" enough, but so far I am pleased. Platinum is delivering bigtime. In gameplay and story. I am so freaking happy it's hard to articulate. It gets the official smurfee mcgee Stamp Of Approval, as a matter of fact. It's beautimous, the combat is deep and satisfying, Raiden is a still a wonderful mirror/Greek tragedy of gaming, the music is terribad but makes sense, sombrero, wolf cyborgs, German scientists, VR atrocities... AHHHHHHH. I recommend it strongly/10.

So, uh, it's hard to write much right now. All I can seem to think aboiut is The Master. Have you seen that? Like, wow, man. /Flixist

I'm almost ramblin'. Lets do the tasty-ass ReCAPS.

* - habslove gives some good tips for buying stuff without being a dickface. Follow these tips, dickface.

P - The Audile Protagonist Episode 9: The James Franco of geek culture. How can you resist that title?

P - Communitoid episode 10. Who doesn't love a good sausage-fest?!? NOT ME! Wait...

A - Gamemaniac3434 discusses the savior of the Vita: Indie games! I think "savior" is a REALLY strong term, but It's one of the few positives about the Vita lately.

S - Chris Carter was busy playing freaking everything at PAX East, and while he was gone, his wife redecorated in an awesome fashion!

E - CyricZ has a postload of cosplay pics hot off the PAX East floor.

V - Final Fantasy X HD & X-2 HD get a trailer! Hype?

R - A review for a great PS3 exclusive: Yakuza 3.

D - POstudios has some nice behind-the-scenes stuff to show. Concept art-->Final product kinda stuff.

T - nilcam is finally getting into Skyword Sword, and details some of his conflicting emotions.

T - Sahfriendly thinks the Tomb Raider reboot was successful and I agree!

T - Vault91 thinks we deserve better. Better meaning more variety in protagonists, in this case. Good job, money.

V - Jonathan Holmes, after all his interviews, is still clearly baffled by a microphone. The good news is, you can now make this interview about anything! Get to it!

R - I would fail this if it weren't for Chaco Tacos & Tacate. And Dale North & Niero & Atlus & I don't wanna get banned & stuff.

C - N0Gil has some quick thoughts on HD remakes. Spoilers: It's possibly cynical.

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.
