Just have a few things to say, I'll try to keep it short though. Finished Mass Effect 1 and 2 over the past 2 weeks. Those games are awesome, where were they all my life. I played through Paragon as Female Shepard(I heard a bunch about how people like her voice actor and shit) and I fucked Kaiden in mass effect 1. In 2, I "kept with" Kaiden (even though he kinda blew me off for working with Cerberus) and didn't pursue another relationship. Wrex and Grunt are awesome characters, it was cool to see them both talk. Saved everyone at the end. For some reason I had no drive to complete any of the side missions in Mass Effect 2 ATM. I just sicked with all the story missions (dossiers and loyalty missions for the most part). I might do the side missions later, maybe a little before Mass Effect 3 comes out(and I'll totally get that).

I just got Fallout 3 and Darksiders. I haven't played the second, but I've been dicking around in the first one. I'll probably continue seriously on my way, but It's so hard to not save, dick around/cause mayham, and then reload. Especially when you consider the Developer console.

I tried out the Starcraft 2 demo. While I easily beat the story missions on normal, when I did a quick skirmish against a normal computer I totally got steamrolled. Reminds me why I should never play a RTS, but I wish I was good at them.

If you are wondering how I found the time to play all these videogames, well here is the story. I was sick over the last week and this week was spring break. I have work tomorrow (blach) and school soon so that's kinda a bummer but whateves. Anyway, enough of my flipping life, here are the recaps.

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.
