I made the mistake of reading Holmes review of Guacamelee and watching the Giantbomb guys Quicklook of it. Now all I want to do is sit around, drink cervezas, and sulk that it isn't on the 360.

I ain't even joking, I'm going to make so much Mexican food today.

I've felt like poo for the past few days, so enjoy these pictures of Mexican related stuff in lieu of actual written content.

-I actually do make legit tacos.

* - Best review of Infinite I've read.

* - Shuuda makes some good points about RPGs and pacing. I can't be the only one who finds it jarring when a dragon is willing to wait while I rescue kittens out of a tree and scrape the hills for minerals to blacksmith up a sword.

* - Dark Souls concept runs are the best.

A - Square is out of it's mind. The paper thin obvious attempt to throw Enix under the bus for Square-Japan's failures is sickening.

A - TheKodu talks about indy development.

P - You better believe I'm gonna get down with some tacos, Tuesday or no.

A - Some games are easier than others to lose yourself in. When a game like Tomb Raider tries to make serious points about humanity and life, only to have you fall 30 into concrete in the next scene to no ill effect, it gets hard to take it seriously.

A - Hakael is very hopeful that Ouya and other open platforms will blow the lid off the established games market. But I just don't see it.

-Not mine, but I did make some crazy dios los muertos cookies this Halloween.
I - Shibboleth introduces himself with a blog about the Megaman game that never was.

R - Nilcam takes a last look at Skyward Sword.

T - Woah! There are still people out there playing SWTOR and its still being updated!? N7 will take those interested on a tour of the new content and changes.

R - Cmstrott weights in with a Bioshock Infinite review. I don't want to blow the surprise, but he might have liked it a little bit.

-Why did I never learn to play El Fuerte!?
? - This is video game related because of reasons I'm sure.

R - Notorum feels like some of the hysteria about EA has gone overboard.

R - PlayBoyMan has a very egalitarian mission statement for his future games.

S - Kickstarter ghetto.

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.
