C Blogs of 12/25/12 + OHMYGODIFORGOT Wrenchisms


Man, Christmas was awesome. Happy family times, well wishes from friends, a new tablet to play with, and I got the Canadian exclusive Wii Mini for the famjam. Just perfect. But I can't help but feel like I forgot something... hum.


Sorry everyone! In all the hustle, bustle, and over eating/drinking of the holidays, I totally forgot my capping duties. For shame! Apologizes to everyone who posted Christmas day and are wondering where the caps are at. Just going to post these real quick and make room for Strider!

Whoops! Happy holidays people!

* - Snealiv writes an obituary to ME3's multiplayer that I couldn't disagree with more. I bleed N7 blood. But, it is a well written article and certainly a POV worth considering.

P - Do unseemly things to Spiderman in this episode of Binary Chode.

A - Marcunio88 finishes off his Twelve days of Christmas series. Swing by and check em out!

A - The only problem with this well curriated best of 2012 list? Max Payne isn't higher.

C - Get some Assassin's Creed 3 for Christmas from ConnorTheScot. This contest is DEAD SIMPLE to enter, so make sure to leave a comment on his blog and put your name in the hat. Man, a brand new AAA game, what a generous guy!

S - Happy Holidays from Nintendo, have some blinking blue lights on a brick! What a major bummer on Christmas morning. Anyone know how widespread this issue is? I would hate to see Nintendo have it's own version of the Red Ring.

T - TheKodu talks about the minor kerfuffle surrounding an indie game called Project Gert: Recon and the developers less than stellar response to criticism.

- I got a chuckle from this :p

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.
