I spent this evening in an itchy sweater depicting 2 gentlemen fishing for large-mouth bass.

A friend of mine is moving to New Mexico for a few months. She’s the kind of friend who enjoys it when her friends do weird and stupid shit. So I had the idea of doing ugly sweater pics with a handful of friends. If you’ve never done anything like that with your close group of friends, reconsider. It’s a fucking awesome time acting like complete jackasses, especially when the end result of jackassery is great photos like this:

Jesus Christ, it’s days like today that make me fall in love with the community. We have probably the most Topsauced blogs ever, discussion about Disney villains, and a little Fail to piss in your coffee. Enjoy.

*-So Chad Concelmo made a list of the best Disney villains, which stevenxonward added to, and ace of knaves got pissed about.

*-Xzyliac continues his incredible series on bands grossly under-represented in Rock Band.

*-Togail. Do I need to say anything further?

*-Elsa helps to make the season bright with these fucking awesome Christmas traditions. I am SO TOTALLY doing the Christmas journal!

*-Ali D takes a great in-depth look at a game I just finished, Dead Space, in light of the sequel announcement.

*-Arkhon defends Rock band and Guitar Hero in the best way possible.

*-Technophile attempts to get a Dtoid WoW guild going, and muses about his time in Azeroth.

*-A wonderful selection of indie shmups, presented by Diverse.

*-Sevil Monthly Muses about the game stories that pull a Fonzie towards the end.

*-randombullseye expounds on his hatred for getting rid of games, either by trading or borrowing.

*-If you didn’t catch it on the front page, here’s an account of the Dtoid UK crew taking over the Capcom Christmas party.

S-Wanna see some pics of a PS3 Slim and a cute puppy?

S-Nick Chester tells us something we already knew.

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.
