LONG BLOG

Cblogs from Jan.18, 2017! Also hey guys!

   0

Hey guys! It's your new Thursday Recapper, NeoTurbo! I've been on Destructoid a long time, but only really started getting into the community in the past year or so. So I guess I just write some personal life updates here or whatever? Seems neat!

I guess the most recent thing I've done worth talking about is a personal resolution I've made. I've decided that besides Monster Hunter World next week, I'm not going to be purchasing ANYMORE games till I make a decent dent in my current gen backlog. For those who know me this is kinda a big deal.

I've also started to practice my photography more again. I've always hoped to one day be a professional photographer and last week a friend of mine was nice enough to let me practice some indoor portrait lighting. Don't really have it down yet, but I at least can tell what I'm doing wrong.

Finally, I guess I'll fill you in on my weekend plans, it's MTG themed kinda! Saturday is my groups weekly(ish) kitchen table Magic night (which I've made a new EDH deck for). Following that I'm going to a Magic the Gathering Unstable draft on Sunday! Other than that I'm planning on relearning Charge Blade in the Monster Hunter World beta and playing some more Warframe.

Phew, that went on awhile didn't it? Sorry about that, lets get on with the reason your actually here!


S - Here we have Dr Mel and Ep.3 of his Resident Evil 2 Wordplay. Learning the History of words with zombies!? Seems like good Edu-tainment to me.


P - Cool dude Jinx 01 let's us know what he's most looking forward to being released this year. I won't spoil them all, but I gotta say I now have at least 3 more games on my radar now. Also Dead Cells is awesome and you guys should play it!

T - Slatan Slatanek gives us his Labo-rious thoughts on Nintendo's surprise announcement. Plenty of thrills, laughs and good vibes so you won't get (card)bored!

N - Shoggoth2588 gives us his rundown on his Top and Bottom 3 Bloodborne bosses! I can't say I agree on all counts, but more Bloodborne to read about is always a plus. But let's just say a certain Lady and me are slightly sad. <_<

T - Fellow Warframe buddy Dwavenhobble gives us his thoughts on the various horrible things that happened last year. Sometimes we gotta look to the past to avoid those problems in the future!

T - Spazzh20 has a list of his top 10 hidden gems of the 7th console generation. Full of surprises, and a No.1 that I can definitely agree with!

F - Furrybearpanda tells us what he thinks about Early Man, a Wallace and Gromit style claymation movie. Full of feminism, football, and feathered friends! (Or maybe not, who am I too miss out on alteration) Anyway, takes a look see to see what he thinks of it!

L - Worried about your youngsters learning "toxic behavior" online? According to Riobux, Nintendo is on the case! Finally, someone did thing of the children.


Alright! This has been my first Recap! I hope you guys liked it!

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.
