C Blogs of 05/27/13 + mcgeeisms


Hello... Are you feeling it yet? That E3 antsy feeling? We're only *checks calender* two weeks away from the biggest* gaming event of the year. The basics are known ahead of time this round, as the Big 3 have revealed their general plans, and even 2/3 showings, of the consoles themselves. Plus the Wii U has already been out for half a year. So the actual reveals aren't what we're looking at.

I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. It's all about games, features, and, now, restrictions. No distracting us with shiny new consoles! There's a lot of cynicism floating around, and I can't really blame anyone for it. Is there anything you think will get you excited? Something to wash the bitter taste of bad news out of your mouth? Looks like Nintendo just announced another (for Japan) Direct about Monster Hunter 4 and Ace Attorney 5. Hopefully we'll see the release of the former not terribly long after Japan.

With Chad gone, how will we make our predictions this year? Anyone got any ideas?

Cap nap...goodbye.

A - Which game is a prime example of the middle ground between triple-A and indie? Asterion gives us his thoughts.

A - Jinx 01 has a fantastic piece about the unique storytelling that only videogames can accomplish. Would you kindly read it?

A - AboveUp has another look at Sonic the Hedgehog from an interesting angle. Old Sonic was a little slow...

A - voex has some familiar feelings about what happened to the Resident Evil series.

S - The newest entry in the community-driven series Save State. This one was written by TronKim, who chose to focus on Einhander. Not often you think SHMUP when discussing narrative.

P - Podtoid fans are (correctly) referred to as "The Shattered." They've somehow drummed up enough brainpower to start their own fucking podcast. Hide your holes.

P - Apparently some of the Shattered are from Brit-land, so you'll be getting new (unofficial) episodes of Brittoid as well.

T - PopetheRevXXVIII likes the fact that the Dreamcast is still getting games, but he wants something other than SHMUPS. I can agree with that.

T - The XboxUno seems to have irritated yet another potential customer. Wagner Paiva Fernandes ain't havin' it.

T - Lance Icarus is ready for the battle that is E3, becasue he's not declaring a winner until he sees some damn GAMES.

T - Wee Tiny Tim gets can't afford used games of the future.

M - Zombie Orwell (who is him) brings Stereotoid back to life (kinda like a zombie) and reviews an exciting album from Eiffel 65 called Europop. I like this "Blue" song.

F - TronKim shares his thoughts on his favorite Bleach character, Rukia Kuchiki.

L - PopetheRevXXVIII has "The Xbox One Song" for us. Stick this computer somewhere.

F - Eh...kinda funny. Needs more dog.

F - Not real news. But you never know, man!

F - Quotes

Good eve...

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.
