C Blogs of 2/10/11 + Late-but-not-my-fault Strykisms


I would have loved nothing more than to be able to post these recaps last night. Unfortunately, I couldn't log into the recappers account. Seems as though the password had been deleted. Isn't that fun? So now you get late caps again. Oops.

To make up for it, have some Donald Duck cartoons:

*- Brain Candy is readying the release of its game Fray, and strangely Dtoid has yet to get on the ball.

*- Final Fantasy VI is a prime example of in-game abilities and techniques tying in the character development.

*- Who wants to play with the Dead Space 2 devs this Saturday?

*- Vote for Thaticanyaks to win the "Be Buried in Silent Hill" contest!

*- Maken X? The hell is that!?

*- A frightening future. How could DRM be handled on the next round of home consoles?

M- podius is a necrophiliac, is in love with a dead franchise.
M- "Cod blops" sounds like street slang for fish droppings.
M- "Know what I hate about Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines? It's too God damn good!"
P- Zero Cool 18: Totally Legal Edition.

T- The 3D invasion.
T- Say! Isn't that that Vanilla Ice song?
T- The day the music died? Nah.
T- Catherine is bringing sexy back right.
T- Good riddance to bad rubbish, you say?

R- Contemplating the universe one avatar-creation screen at a time.
R- Two chicks at the same time.
?- You are a strange one, LawofThermalDynamics.

COPY-PASTA- If you must pimp your other site and its podcast, at least link directly TO the podcast.
COPY-PASTA- The 3DS sounds great, but please don't copy-paste from your other site.
F- Fucking thief.
F- Heed his advice! Don't fap his blog!
F- "Short thought" indeed.
F- You can't just link to someone else's article and be done with it!

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.
