C Blogs of 7/24/10 and 7/25/10 + SilverDragonisms


I honestly can't believe that Starcraft 2 comes out in less than 24 hours. It's been an extremely long 12 year wait since the original Starcraft was released, but on Tuesday it will all be worth it. To say I have extremely high expectations for this game is truly an understatement.

I've spent the last 4 months playing the beta and loved every second of it. I would spend $60 on the multiplayer alone, and that's not even what I'm looking forward to the most. It's the single player that really has my interest peaked. After spending the last 2 months reading tons of Starcraft novels, I know the lore inside and out, and I really look forward to seeing where the story goes.

This is Blizzard we are talking about here people. They simply don't know how to make a bad game. Can you imagine what the industry would be like if every single company put as much time, love, dedication, and hard work into every game they made like Blizzard does. Sure, there would be a lot less games to play, but they would all be spectacular.

Suffice to say, when Tuesday gets here, the only place you'll find me for the next couple months is on playing Starcraft 2. If you are interested in playing with me, let me know below in the comments and I'll add you to my SC2 friends list.

Now let's get to your regularly scheduled weekend Cblog 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.
