Cblog recaps of 12/1/17, 12/8/17, and 12/15/17+Where the sidewalk ends


First of all I apologize for this being as late as it is, I'll be setting it to come out yesterday but I wrote it on Sunday. Honestly, normally I would write up something of prodigious girth but as many of you have no doubt noticed the blogs are in a pretty bad way right now. Whether or not some of you will even be able to read this is not known to me, hence me not musing on something else.

Since the day before American Thanksgiving-which is like other thanksgivings but with more freedom and gun violence-the blogs have been loading horrendously slowly or not at all and its made reading them a bit of a mess here or there. That in turn has somewhat lowered the volume of blogs we've been getting and that's why this is a three week recap-that only has about 6 blogs. Its really impacted peoples willingness to write and it saddens me to see. Even my own latest blogs shillposts had people saying they couldn''t access my blog to read it despite wanting to. 

This isn't an accusatory post or anything-merely a statement of affairs and where things stand for the blogs as of now. I'm sure the wheels are turning in the background to figure out whats going on and how to fix it, and I hope they come to their conclusion soon so we the blogs can get back to being in a state of better health.

Onto recaps!

S - Virtua Kazama provides a look into the current state of Virtua Fighter 3tb-a game that came out in 1997 and apparently still has tournaments going on here or there.

S - Virtual Kazama has another one for you, detailing a pro-wrestler who took on the identity of a video game character in order to sell a game and try to make it bigger in the pro-wrestling thing. Because life is a strange thing.

A - Once again Virtua Kazama writes up a little something for Virtua Fighting month, and discusses experiences playing Virtua Fighter 4 and 5.

C - Cedi muses on patreons now backpedaled plans to force supporters to pay the cost that creators used to deal with from their pledges and their own personal musings on starting a patreon or a drip to earn a bit of income from writing blogs while potentially trying to get writing for a site. I find myself in a similar boat-I've considered Patreon to potentially make a dollar or two for a blog and I've also aimed at getting onto Dtoids FP in some capacity, and I have to say that yeah I'm on board with this blogs concerns. It really is distressing to see such a well loved platform make such a huge blunder without even realizing that creators might not want that, and seeing the loss of support a lot of creators have suffered because of this blunder is also distressing. We'll see if Patreon keeps its nose clean going forward, but I'm guessing Drips going to have more steam in the engine at this juncture.

F - With his thoughts on The Last Jedi comes rico, here to share his visions of porgs and also possibly other stuff with you.

May your fission be binary and your growth forever exponential.

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.
