Mario Kart is so much better than I had expected guys. If you haven't had a chance to see it in action yet you should really get on that because it is just absolutely gorgeous. They also fixed a lot of the balancing mechanics from the Wii one. The new stages and items are also great new additions, and the online works flawlessly and is a ton of fun. My one complaint so far? Where is Birdo? No Birdo in MK8 is a huge mistake Nintendo. 2015 year of Birdo!!

Speaking of Nintendo we are less than a week away from E3! I am pretty excited. Microsoft should have big announcements since they've already announced kinectless XB1 and all those Halo details. Sony needs games to keep up that PS4 hype train. And Nintendo, well they have a lot they need to do, Mario Kart seems to have helped a bit but they still need to move a lot more units.

Do you guys have any predictions? I'll make a few just for fun. Microsoft: some sort of Windows handheld gaming device with the Xbox brand (not likely I know but...), New Rare IP or a returning one, big system update for XB1, Titanfall 2, Battlefield 3 is an XB1/PC exclusive (I would hate that myself but just making a prediction)

Sony: New Crash Bandicoot, new Jak and Daxter, Last of Us 2, Infamous game for Vita, PLEASE SAY SOMETHING ABOUT LAST GUARDIAN, system UI overhaul, new gravity rush for PS4 ad Vita

Nintendo: Smash release date and a new character, pokemon ruby and sapphire info, new 3d metroid for wii u, gameboy camera on 3ds eshop, gamecube virtual console games, pokemon red and blue on eshop (THAT SAME DAY?!) Mother 3 localization or maybe a Mother double (triple?!) pack for 3DS, 3DS lite

I could go on but I'm mostly just making wild guesses. What would your ultimate e# announcement be?

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.
