Cblogs of 12/23/08 + SilverDragonisms


That's right it's time for another exciting installment of the daily Cblog recaps, brought to you by yours truly, Silverdragon. I'm taking over for Pendelton tonight, since he took over for me last night. I have to tell you guys there was a lot of good stuff to read today in the community blogs. So good in fact that I found 4 posts that I highlighted below in the topsauce section that I honestly think everyone should read. There also weren't a lot of fail blogs, which is always a good thing. The fewer fail blogs the better.

So today was my final day of work in the year 2008. I don't plan on being back in the office until January 5th, which is almost a full 12 days off. Trust me I am extremely excited. How do I plan on spending those 12 days you might ask. Well I've had Fallout 3 sitting on top of my XBOX360 for the last month unwrapped, so I plan on finally opening that up and playing it. From what everyone has said, including Yojimbo, it is was of the best games of the year. Yes I do believe 12 straight days of Fallout 3 is the perfect way to end 2008. SO what are you guys planning on playing over the Christmas break?

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.
