You haven't seen this yet, have you? I just saw it myself a few minutes ago. It picked up 2500 views in about an hour though, so it's well on its way to going viral.


*-If only we could force people to read this before they could sign up for an account. New C-blog boss Kauza drops some advice on those planning their first foray into Destructoid community blogging.
*- Gnarlythotep's Monthly Musing looks at adjustable difficulty and the unfortunate decision to lock the highest level of challenge in some games.
*-It's all too common- we hear about a game only after all hopes of it crossing the Pacific are dashed and dead. Matty125 brings us news of the latest victim.


A-Dakilazical has found new life in an older game thanks to his shiny new 3DS.
A-Portable Nerd gives some first impressions of his experiences with his new 3DS, promising that this will be the first in a series.
A-TriplZero really, really likes Dragon Age 2.
P-Alcoholocast has made episode 24 available. I could really go for one of those word sandwiches right about now.


Once you hear this, you'll poop cinderblocks. Compare and contrast, if you will...

E-GameZombie recaps the Game Developer's Conference.
E-Joeisremy invites anyone in the Milwaukee area to a game-themed improv night.
D-Caiters would like your support in her quest to go to E3 on Kmart's dime.

C-Crime bears truth, and your avatar/name combo doesn't exactly inspire confidence that you're offering up an unbiased opinion.
C-Some context would be nice. Posting up a bunch of 3DS codes looks like gibberish without it.


F- I think you need a "lesson," adbot. And by "lesson" I mean beating.
F- Lol references.
F-A shame Kauza's post didn't go live until after you'd posted this. You can always delete it and try again, though. That was a hint.

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.
