CBlogs o' 10/14/13 + MacMangasms Better Late Than Never Edition


I don't know what it is about the rare times I need to make the drive from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh on days when I should be recapping.

I've suddenly found myself a whole lot less excited to be getting a PS4 at launch. It has nothing to do with the system itself, really, nor the Xbone. Its the fact that Watch Dogs was delayed. I was really looking forward to the game. Now I find myself only with Killzone as a game I want right at launch. Knack looks plenty charming but not something that appeals to me enough to shell out $60 for it.

So what's everyone else think about this? With only one game to get with the system I'm actually debating just waiting to get the console all together.

* - I'm not sure I've ever agreed with a blog more.

S - The plot thickens....

* - Thankyou for finally explaining cookie clicker to me!

* - Astarisy almost quit games. I've found myself in these shoes several times this generation. A fine read.

* - Shuudy's Top 5 emotional moments in games. I donno, I was kinda bummed when I had to wake Snorlax up.

* - PS4 or Xbone. Rimmy goes in depth with his dilemma.

* - Joey clues us into the ever-changing called Clock Tower. Is the plot really as versatile as he says? Might be worth checking out.

S - Part 2 of Volty's As Black as Lighting series. Spoilers for FFXIII and its sequels.

* - Updated rules and whatnot for the Drag-On Dragoon art contextoid.

I - Everyone say hi to Iany, feel free to read the comments.

* - Kingdom <3s 2.5 R3M1X announced, ya'll!

D - An update on how Sprout is coming along. Really digging the cloud effects.

C - What motivates gamers? Do you have to donate to find out? I can't say that I'm sure.

V - A rather unexpected find indeed.

* - The weekly blogless video post.

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.
