Hello everyone! I hope you all had a nice Friday!

So since last week, Final Fantasy VI has been beaten (huzzah!), and I can finally say that it's now one of my favorite Final Fantasies! It was really fantastic, and I'm sad I didn't get into it sooner.

Now I'm sitting here trying to decide what I should play next... I was already in the process of playing Space Channel 5 and Jet Set Radio when Borderlands 2 came out and commanded my attention. Also, The Unfinished Swan, Of Orcs and Men and Retro City Rampage all recently released and I've been wanting to play all of them for quite some time! And then the Dark Souls DLC just came out for consoles a few days ago...

Argh, too many choices! What should I play first??


I already know what knutaf probably thinks I should play first... and actually that's probably what I'll end up choosing, haha.

Also, I recently visited the MCM Expo in London with PK493! Check out my awesome adventure!

* - knutaf thinks everyone should play The Last Express, an intriguing game about trains and murder and intrigue. Looks like I have another game to add to my list...

A - Honoring the fallen in XCOM. Rest in peace, Jerry Seinfeld. What's the deal with aliens anyway?!

A - SephirothX predicts DOOOM for the Devil May Cry reboot, for various plausible reasons.

A - SigfriedLion shares his fond memories of playing Doom in his younger days, brought on by his recent acquisition of Doom: BFG Edition. (Very clever title, by the way!)





F - Friday Night Fights on the 3DS + nerve-wracking games!

F - Friday Night Fights on the 360 + the Red Hot Chilly Billies!

I - Yves Considerably offers up an introductory post full of secret agents, moons and video games.

E - Megakrang will be attending PAX Australia! Any other Dtoiders planning on going?

R - Elect-Nigma reviews Code of Princess, a neat looking title for the 3DS.

T - Resident Evil 6 is apparently so bad that whatsacow can't stop playing it!

$ - October 26th UK releases and bargains.





L - Mr Andy Dixon dreams about choking on dicks, confirmed!

F - Bradley Jones has moved on from The Secret World and will now be telling us all we never cared to know about Guild Wars 2 with his glorious copypastas.

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.
