Cblogs of 01/25/13 and bbainisms


It's snowing...

And I am cold and grumpy and I want the snow to go away. Winter always puts me in a foul mood. I don't really have anything for you today as far as these -isms go, but here are some pictures of kitties in the snow. They make me feel slightly less hateful towards snow.


* - Though I remain pretty optimistic about the current state of video gaming myself, I definitely agree with Char Aznable's complaints about the industry. But there are plenty of great games out there, you just have to know where to look!

M - Returner Mike's debut Cblog focuses on the monthly topic of sex in video games. He has a very reasonable viewpoint, and I'd say he handles the topic quite well.

M - ccesarano dreamed of creating a well-written hentai game, but the idea never came to fruition.

A - segastardust recently had a very bad experience at EB Games, a store he once loved.

A - CommanderCC offers up a cautionary tale of modding addiction and the problems that can arise from modding a game too heavily.

A - Pixielated makes some adjustments to her RPG quest, as she will now be focusing primarily on Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem.

A - Would it be beneficial to give developers a tighter budget to keep them from going under? Perhaps, but I don't think modern gamers would be too happy about it.

A - A brief history of Ketsui, a vertical shoot 'em up by Cave.

F - Friday Night Fights on the PC + Giraffes!

F - Friday Night Fights on the PS3 + MURDER SWORD.

F - Friday Night Fights on the Wii U + Yoshi is made of string!

T - Some thoughts on the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo by lokhe.

R - nilcam bought a very pricey set of component cables for his GameCube and gives them a review.

$ - January 25th UK releases and bargains!

V - Nick RP Green talks about video games while doing the dishes. He also mentions something about "hard on hot chocolate," so it sounds like a sexy video!

V - Video review of 10,000,000 by DanielCampbell.

R - Ronin4life seems to think the snow is affecting Disqus... goddamn snow!

C - Like and sub if you enjoy!!!!!!!111!!1! (I'm not really a fan of blogs like this...)

C - I guess he wins the sexual innuendo contest?

C - I don't understand why you would complain about an HD remake existing. Just don't buy it?

F - Beijing spams the shit out of the Dtoid Cblogs. Fuckin' Beijing.

F - Welcome back! Write a real blog 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.
