C Blogs Of 10/01/13 + mcgeeisms


Long time, no CAP! I'm filling in for Wrenchfarm while he spreads the good word of the Mech around the countryside.

I've been up to the usual lately: trying all the different candy corn I can find. For review purposes, of course. I've made my through some caramel apple-flavored candy corn, and today I'll be busting open a Starburst branded cob. The texture seems fine, but I'm having a hard time imagining how it meshes with fruity flavor.
Towards the end of October, I'll probably have a big roundup of my criticisms so everybody can decide what kind of Corn to stock for their parties/trick-or-treaters. It's an important decision to have to make, and I want to help people be properly informed. So please, if there's a CC you want to see covered, or just have a favorite to suggest, feel free!

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to get back to being disconnected from Grand Theft Auto Online. Good to CAP again :)

C - pk fire wants to start a new community project: Musicians Wanted. For those familiar with Bloggers Wanted or Artists Wanted, this is exactly what you think it is. What says you, community? Is this a good idea? Would you participate?

N - zerocrossing sums up the Mighty No. 9 campaign in this one from his personal blog. They reached over $4 million by the time it finished!!

T - TheDustinThomas doesn't want games using the term "Game of the Year Edition" without some actual accolades to back it up. It is pretty obnoxious. ISN'T THAT RIGHT, DEAD ISLAND??

V - JordanLloyd traverses the Eurogamer Expo floor, and tries out all the new things. Check it out!

A - Words fail Panzadolphin56, so instead he put his empty feelings into one Art that expresses the inner confusion caused by Dead Space 3.

C - Alasdair Duncan continues his backlog quest, although you would never know it because he cannot format or use the preview function :P You can still tell what the choices are by the pictures, so there's that!

V - MiB1231 is participating in Extra Life! Good man. Check out his video and donation page, as he supports Children's Miracle Network by playing games for 25 hours straight.

F - JackSlack is a PC thug, and I won't tolerate it.

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.
