Tomorrow is my 32nd birthday, and I have to say that I'm a little sad to leave 31 behind. It was easily one of the best ages of my life. I got married, visited St. Croix and Costa Rica, saw tons of friends and family, sold my house old house, and bought a brand new one all in the span of one year. Yeah, there was some shitty stuff thrown in there as well, but the majority of the year was awesome. It will be an age that's hard to top as I get older. For now, on the evening of the final day of being 31, I just want to remember all the awesome memories I have of it.

So this week I've been playing Uncharted 3. I haven't gotten very far in it though because I've spent most of my spare time painting my house, trying to get it ready for a bit housewarming / birthday party my wife and I are throwing next weekend. I'm only about 3 hours into the game right now, and I must say that it doesn't start as fast and furious as I was hoping. It's kind of been a little slow and I'm a little bit disappointed by that fact. I'm waiting for it to get as epic as everyone says it is.

Before I get to the recaps, I just want to mention that my college team, the NC State Wolfpack, beat our in-state rival, the UNC Tar holes, in football this weekend for the 5th straight year in a row. We actually completely shut them out, not letting them score a single point. Since they were favored to beat us, it was a wonderful surprise to kick their ass instead. which has made my entire weekend great!

Now let's get on with the recaps shall we.

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.
