Cblogs of 03/26/14 + NIHILISMS


Hello, Destructoid community bloggers. It's been a while yet.

Some of you may know me. Some of you may not. I am Nihil, a murder police in The Basement. I used to be a frequent blogger myself, on these here pages. There's a few excuses as to why I don't blog as much anymore. Foremost is because video games are horrible and should be banned and you all should be ashamed of yourselves. Secondly, it's none of your business. And last, your Mother.

BUT! I still care about reading your musings, so much so that I made a thread dedicated to showing Those Who Dwell Below what they're missing up here. A sorta cool-blogs-I-read-lately deal - not unlike these here recaps. And I have concluded, with my natural detective skills, that this made me a shoe-in as a reservist for the cblogs.

If you told me months and years and days ago that I would be a reserve recapper in 2014, I would've told you to shut up and go kill yourself. But now, in these dire times, it seems my services to the cblog community are required yet again.

* - Third Round of your MSpaints is go. You will literally get a cookie for each one you guess right.

* - Arsenic13 thinks about the children and the future of their online gaming environments.

* - Everyday Legend is a big fan of irony and corrupt politicians getting fucked in the ass. It just so happens I am as well.

I - HLBC is back, and explains why he hasn't made a blog in a while. His reasons are better than mine.

N - ktfX gives us the low-down on why Facebook buying out Oculus is pissing people off.

R - Old McDonald had a farm. And on that farm, he reviewed Silent Hill Shattered Memories, The Stanley Parable, and SteamWorld Dig. They're pretty okay.

R - Star Ocean is underrated, ROM'd, and reviewed. It's not piracy if they don't make 'em like they used to...

T - PopetheRev likes the Sonic and Outrun series, because they make him feel funny "down there".

A - A comic book review and recommendations by the elusive Hammershark.

Thus concludes our broadcast Recaps. Hope you enjoyed 'em. Thanks to Strider and Smurfee for the opportunity, and I'll see y'all 'round the bend!

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.
