Penis penis penis penis penis penis. I've taken to saying penis as a greeting when I enter a room lately. Also I've sucked at recapping lately, 1 late recap, 1 missed recap last week (a change in recap computer which screwed me over) and now an ON TIME RECAP! Check the skies.

Videogames videogames videogames. I haven't exactly been playing much lately. It's been bitesized nuggets of gameplay when I feel like it. Instead I've been doing not much again. It's really quite hard to think of what I've really been doing lately.

Oh right, I've gone into election mode. I'm a hopeless election addict and it's my home country heading towards one this time. I have manifestos to read, news to watch and read and come May 6th an entire glorious night of coverage to obsess over courtesy of the hilarious Jeremy Paxman and hopefully the insanity of the BBC's graphics department.

I need help. Oh well, here are some blogs and the answer to that most critical question. Where did I put Beyamor's quest for Failtoid blog?



* - I won't keep you waiting, Beyamor gets Topsauce because his #2 is still making me giggle
* - Good rant, Apple aren't nearly as safe among nerds now everyone else is catching up
* - What the original Xbox Live (being deactivated today as you read this) means to Alakaiser
* - Related to the above blog, Tarvu's hosting one final blowout to say goodbye to Halo 2
* - Dear Niero, can we have a Dreamtoid category in the Cblogs?



A - Thoughts on games that repeat the same formula

S - Comments of the Week time (also featuring the greatest Sonic 4 theory EVER)
P - What's arousing, fapworthy and contains Jim Sterling? Nicole Wiebe. Also SEGA Addicts 6

C - DJVLive is giving out copies of AvP2000 and has some of his own AvP memories in here



S - Dtoid Midwest has a Facebook group now
I - Dynomice has the latest in a long line of excellent intros



N - Batthink found this list in the Telegraph newspaper, interesting (if badly titled) stuff
N - Demon's Souls is coming to Europe ABOUT FUCKING TIME

A - Enkido made art, also SHARK
A - GAME CAKE!! Grimspoon's Day of the Tentacle cake
F - Xandaca saw Clash of the Titans, poor guy
M - Guncannon showcases some of his favourite MMX intro stage remixes



? - This is certainly quite random, especially as a first blog



F - OK, some context would be nice, else this is just pointless rage
F - I don't feel good failing this, especially with the comments being brutal (and hilarious)
F - There are adverts in my Cblogs
F - uck off


(NJ, also ZOMG I ACTUALLY PUT MY AVATAR IN HERE)

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.
