LONG BLOG

C-Blogs of 16/09/09 +Cadtalfrisms

   0


Hey everyone. I haven’t been around much to fill in lately, but here are some c-blog recaps that are actually rather punctual for a change.

I have been a bit busy as of late: moving into a new house, being back at college and getting a shiny new PS3 have consumed a lot of my time. I recently went to a Dtoid LA NARP for the first time where I met Chad Concelmo. I met the Pokemon Trainer from There Will Be Brawl the other day. We were drunk. I just finished inFAMOUS...which is as fun as it was shit, much like Mirror's Edge is as amazing as it was awful, but perhaps I'm just jaded.

The recapping team has had a bit of a rough week, so I decided to put this ahead of the other things I need to get done tonight...so I hope you loveable bastards enjoy. Now, I would love to do nothing more than veg out for the rest of the evening playing Bit Trip or Mirror’s Edge, but I’ll be working into the wee hours creating a topographical map of my town with geographic information system software.

Tonight is going to be fun.

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.
