Cblog recaps - 11/16/08 + Randombullisms


Hey guys. I played Fallout 3 for two weeks. In the pursuit of a job as a games journalism work, I wrote a Fallout 3 review. I pointed out some problems I had with it and my experiences with the game. I've got a lot of stuff written out and nearly finished for the cblogs. Old school games returns! With a new name! Hooray! Everyday this week I'll have a new post! Also this week I'll post a review of Conan on xbox 360! If I can finish the game and my review that is.

Also Tuesday is the day I want to finish Bonerquest! I'm going to try to spend all day working on it and hopefully get it done. I've selected a handful of people to test the game. I tried to pick people that I knew better than others that were a little more responsible and honest. I don't want Bonerquest to be insanely difficult or a complete cake walk. Also have to find out if the game is too crazy. Sorry to those of you that wanted to try it out first. It isn't quite ready yet for everyone to try out, but maybe soon.

Have to hook up the playstation one this week some replays. Megaman 8, we meet again! I'm going to put off buying any new games until next week. I also have to avoid putting Final Fantasy Tactics anywhere near my playstation. I don't have 200 hours to spend getting calculators again.

That mother 3 review was too fun to fail. As was that post that linked to the article about movie sequels being rather informative. No fail Sundays are back!


I want to switch to Mondays from the weekends. Also recappers please, please use the final post of the day option. I hate having to decipher what was recapped and what wasn't. I just had to guess today and I got confused and thought there were only five posts yesterday. So yeah. Pretty please with sugar on top post the final post of the day. If not here than in the recap thing. Even if I can never figure out my login information I still get e-mails telling me what gets posted. If that's okay with the recap team. My schedule has changed and this week I'm in a position so that I could do the Monday night recap. So just hit me with a private message or an e-mail.

Other then that, if you guys catch me on live I'm up for playing stuff anytime. Just ask. Still haven't found someone to play Marvel Ultimate Alliance with. Okay, that's it for me.

Any errors in tonight's recap, grammatical, typographical, or bbcodde, I will fix later this morning. Hopefully.

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.
