CBlogs o' 8/5/13 + MacMangasms


Sadly, I haven't too much time for my Gasms so it's gonna be a quick one.

So, I've been waiting in anticipation for the PS4, but as I look more and more at what will be coming back this fall, I have a great grievance with it brewing. (which is pretty much my complaint with this upcoming generation in general) The whole no backwards compatibility thing is gonna be pretty annoying. 

This fall I will be buying the new Batman, GTA, and the upcoming South Park game. This means for the first couple months I'll have the PS4, I'm gonna be switching a whole lot between the PS4 and PS4. Now, 6 months from now, I don't think I'll give a damn, but the great lineup of games for coming out this season has me wondering if getting the new console at launch is really worth it.

What do you guys think? Anyone who reserved the PS4 or Xbone have this problem?

Another fine day for blogs. Let's get to it and enjoy these FUCKING SHARK WEEK themed pictures.

* - Zerocrossingy discusses the portrayal of women in games in a well done way. What I appreciated the most were his thoughts on other people's approach to the topic.

* - Zombie-ee is at his best with this edition of Talking to Humans.

A - Joey hits us with some thoughts on his backlog that I can relate to.

M - Popey's distaste for Mega Man's level design sparks a debate.

S - Another fine entry in the SaveState series.

I - VagrantHingey's first blog shows a very promising start. Can't wait to see more from you.

T - Sephzilla-ee ponders on how MMOs could be better.

R - Nadery seemed to enjoy Metro. Kudos for using the /5 scale.

D - Johnny is working on a cool little game here. Interested to check it out, for sure.

A - Gargaroo-ee gives us some thoughts on how art contributes to immersion. Really like the picture he used.

S - A not so great introduction. Better luck next time !

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.
