Cblog recaps 11/29/08 +Randombullisms


I'm going to try and recap todays blogs, based off of the opening lines. Lets hope I'm accurate as possible! If I made a major mistake, can someone else look over my shoulder and fix it for me? Thanks a lot. Hey can you get that? Thanks a lot.

Oh hey, Bonerquest had a test version get passed around. I heard it wasn't working now to download it, so I guess those that have it are playing it and seemingly enjoying it. Some places not as much as the others, but I'm getting some good feedback. Also cocks. No really. It seems some areas are full of random battles, the dialog is funny, and I guess the game is playable. Rather difficult to install, but once you get past that, you're ready to rock with some old school style role playing action. One fella described it to me in an message as being like zelda and pokemon mixed with my type of humorous nature. You know, dick and fart jokes. I've been told I do that well. Course, I've also been told that Destructoid recaps are important and that everyone reads them. Does anyone ever read these posts I write here? I'm sure one guy does. You're awesome sir. Or lady even. Thanks for reading my posts. I try to read peoples posts, but often times now I'm so busy with stuff. I can just sort of skim over things.

Just in case you missed it in our chat, I've bought some new games on the xbox three hundred and sixty. I'm now part of the Gears 2, Fable 2, and Saints Row 2 club. If any of you wish to play some of those, my gametrag is the same as my name. (randombullseye just in case you don't know who I am. Which saying that makes me think of the Juggernaut cartoon.)

I guess I didn't pick anything today. Some decent posts today, I might read through some of the Chrono Trigger DS posts. Maybe.

A- This post is about an HDTV and I think something about their xbox as well. Don't know what catagory or section to put it in, so article under word it is.

C- SSF2HD Tournament for you playstation three fellas.

?- Retroforce GO music fans check out this post. Someone has something in mind that involves retroforce and music.

N- Playstation 3 has new dual shock charger and wireless keypad coming out. Says it has a video in the blog title.
R- Mirrors Edge review
R- Review of Chrono Trigger DS
T- Something about 2008s video games, I think.
T- Chrono Trigger DS something about it.
T- Another Chrono Trigger post, from someone that hasn't played it before.
V- TF2 Mass AI
V- Fallout 3 video. Sounds like it might be about dancing or something. Perhaps it is humorous?
?- I want to say this is about Street Fighter 2 and that new version of it, but maybe not. Sure seems like it from the little description in the opening lines. I like how destructoid has that.

A- A community member is doing a comic.
F- ShiMoNi continues with Leonord Part Six. Swat Kats, Megas XLR, and Pokemon also mentioned.
?- Something arrived from Canada.
?- Someone went to Japan on a field trip or something. I assume this is the first of many posts about that trip.

V- Destructoid's editor in chief is old.
V- A post about a video taking someone back to their childhood. I put it in other, assuming it was an other related video post.
?- Something about Linux. I don't know exactly what they're talking about.
?- Made a robot aparantly.
?- Another website needs help or something.

I guess I didn't fail anything either today. Some stuff seemed less interesting than others, but just for politeness sake and that nothing seemed glariingly fail, I guess there wasn't any.


Hopefully I can devote some more of my free time towards Bonerquest. If you're curious where Random SElect was yesterday, I won't be doing it for a few weeks. I want to get Bonerquest finished and then concentrate on doing the blog thing. Unless of course someone hires me to do blogs proffesionally, then by all means you'll see somemore random select such as Missile Command or something else like that. I want to do more Golden Age stuff. No one seems to talk about the Atari or Colecovision, and gosh darned it, I'm just a bad enough dude to talk about that stuf. Have fun guys and keep it clean.

Also left in spelling errors today. Hopefully none of my code work here messes up. Oh well!

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.
