Running waayyyy tired today. But y'all know what happened. It was E3 day one! Lots of good games (lots so many omghnnng) were shown, some were announced, and Sony checked all the boxes.

What are your guys' highlights for today? Disappointments? Predictions for tomorrow?


Short-ass CAPS with cheese.

* - The new Save State. Today, it's Fandango writing about Fear Effect, and hard choices. Great stuff!

* - TroyFullbuster and his buddy Matt have a thorough breakdown of all the things they want in the next Smash Bros. game.

S - More censorship chronicles with OpiumHerz. This one is about Sniper Elite V2 (again) and pre-emptive censoring.

P - A new episode of the Shattered Podcast. Chicken.

A - TheManchild has some thoughts on game reviews, and why many react the way they do to them.

P - A new episode of the GoForRainbow Podcast. Apparently, Corey is not an alcoholic. I have my doubts :P



F - Instead of Dtoid PS3 FNF. they're changing their name to PS FNF. So all Sony Friday Night Fights will fall under the banner. Maybe the Xbox guys should do the same?

V - Mikki Saturn has some video predictions for E3. Hopefully you saw these before the conferences. There's a Nintendo one, at least. Still time!

T - JanicedCollins has some good tips on buying mobile games while minimizing disappointment.

T - shaxam1029 talks greed, risk & reward, and Isaac.

V - Mikki Saturn continues looking back at Mario's 2D platforming fun with Super Mario World.

T - Osga21 has some thoughts about the Microsoft E3 reveals.

V - The sign of a good game: you just keep playing even though you're dying. Watch BobofManframe die like a billion times in Rayman Legends, and say angry things.



L - Of all the things Sony did right today, they really didn't seem to help out the Vita enough. For ninjapresident, it was still enough.

R - nabokovfan87 is here to tell you the good word. Now that you know the word, does a gaming PC finally interest you?



This conference was quite a ride. In Failtoid just because it was blank space.

Okay; gotta go get ready for Smash Bros. and a bunch of other games. So relieved that games are actually the focus this year :)
*dances*

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.
