Hello, everyone! This week, I became hopelessly addicted to Rogue Legacy, playing for hours on end on any given day. A single life usually doesn't last very long, but it's one of those games where I'll think, "OK, just one more try," and then somehow end up playing for another two hours.

I managed to beat the game once already, so now I'm working on new game plus, while also trying to take down the hidden bosses. They're super challenging! Astrodotus seems manageable, but I don't know how I'm going to beat the other three.

The coolest part of Rogue Legacy, of course, is the traits system. It keeps thinks fresh and unpredictable. I have my favorite traits, such as ADHD, Clumsy, Hypergonadism, Stereo Blind, Hypochondriac, Baldness and Gay, so I tend to pick those if I ever see them. Most of them are useful, while some of them, like Hypochondriac, just make me laugh, or others like Stereo Blind just kind of look cool. Even the ones that don't really do anything, like Baldness and Gay, are still kind of quirky and charming, so I like picking them. And then there are some traits that make the game a whole lot harder, like Vertigo which flips the entire screen upside down. I tend to avoid those traits, but they could be fun to choose for an added challenge. 

I also tend to stick to the same classes; I try to only pick Paladin, Barbarian king, Assassin, or Hokage. I'm much more of a brawler than a magic-user, so the magic classes don't really appeal to me. And then, certain class/trait combinations can lead to awesome results. My favorite is Hokage with ADHD, since they become ridiculously fast! 

Anyway, I think it's about time I jumped back into the game, so let's go ahead and finish up these recaps!

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.
