Sorry for the late caps everyone. Yesterday I was pretty far behind schedule studying for an exam next Monday, so I made the terrible decision to prioritize school over video games. I still don't have all the time in the world even now, but at least enough to get these caps out there into the world at large. The good news is that from Monday onwards I will be swimming in free time. I might even play some video games, imagine that!

Speaking of video games, I have the absolute worst luck when it comes to WiiU games. Back when Pikmin 3 came out, it took my local electronics/games retailer over two weeks to finally ship my order. Then when I bought The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, it did arrive on time but my TV broke immediately afterwards.
And now Mario Kart 8 is out, but I just got an e-mail from the game store that they haven't been supplied enough copies so I'm going to have to wait until Monday at the earliest. Bummer, but at least this means I can keep focusing on that exam first.

Still, I'm getting super excited for some kart racing action, and that free copy of The Wonderful 101 is going to be awesome too!

* - I hope you stick around, RainsOpacity! For her first non-intro blog she lists some soundtracks guaranteed to make your skin crawl.

* - Right on schedule, more video game music: it's Jet Set Radio's OST Case Study. Hell yeah.

* - It's been a while since Voltech has blogged for us, but as always it's a fascinating read. The topic today: destroying and 'saving' the world in Devil Survivor 2.

P - Pocketoid Episode 51 is all about the Gameboy! It's so weird to think it's actually older than me.

A - I'm all for this idea: Ocelot may be starting a series on the best levels in platformers.

T - PixelFiend has its first impressions on Watch_Dogs ready. Mixed feelings, sounds like.

- Less babies though Nintendo, please. You have so many characters, use them!

- On the left: the biggest innovation in Mario Kart history.

F - This tells us nothing about anything.

[EDIT: Never mind, not two minutes after I put up these caps Mario Kart 8 did arrive. False alarm, I guess? No clue what happened there, but I'm not complaining!]

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.
