Cblogs of 2/23/18&3/2/18&3/9/18+Back from the hydrothermal vents


Yeah its been a bit hasn't it? Fridays have been slow lately on blogs and last weekend was busier than I anticipated so you're getting a good old fashioned three cap. So then, whats been going on with me? Well I finally got my podcast off the ground and it continues to rumble along despite some techincal issues and I've managed to hopefully get into a routine of putting out a blog/podcast every week to keep things moving in the blog arena. Its been rewarding for me so far, and I plan on trying to keep it going as long as is feasible. In real life stuff I also managed to get a raise and a bonus, and I may get a switch in the near future financials permitting. 

I've also been enraptured with MHW-as the games gone on more and more of its complexity has unraveled for me and I find myself getting higher and higher rank weapons, fighting new monsters and getting new items with which to fight them monsters. I know I've been gushing about this for a while, but honestly the games got its hooks in deep and I'm still digging into the story to try to get to the end while hunting with the peeps on dtoid and trying to get limo into it. Its been a fun ride and I don't see myself getting off of it entirely soon. And finally I beat Hellblade and despite some issues I overall enjoyed the game and its one I think I may play again at some point to try to get a better grip on the different stuff its trying to bring across. 

Oh and I've been listening to some Witcher 3 music which has made me think about The Witcher 3 a fair bit again. Hence the images and the music I posted. 

Onto recaps! 

* - dephoenix gives us an interesting look at their personal experience with the roller coaster ride that is crowdfuding. Its a pretty hefty list and makes me muse on the projects I've backed and how those turned out. Its a good indepth look, give it a read if so inclined.

C - Strider, fellow Monster Hunter world addict and resident monster hunter expert in addition to the several others because of course, presents a blog asking you what your favorite monsters are. For myself, Odogaron is definitely up there. I have a set of almost entirely his gear and I looove it.

T - Shoggoth continues their gaming journal by looking at februarys games and there are quite a few of them indeed. Makes me look at the two games, three games I've been mainlining and pondering if I should go play something else for a bit. Naaaah.

T - Kerrik brings us a blog that serves as a buyers guide for NIhon Falcom games available in the west. Seems a decent list if such things tend to catch your eye and I'd recommend taking a look if their stable seems up your alley.

T - This blogs not perfect but I like it and it has some interesting things to say about Dark Souls which always is a hoot for me given my love of that particular gem. I find it interesting to muse on how depressing and uplifting the game can be in various turns and the nature of the heroes of its world. Not a bad look at all. If I had one complaint I'd like to lodge, maybe stop bringing up SOTC and let this be its own thing-I have no feelings towards that game but the unneeded swipes take away from the blog as a whole.

C - As someone with no real investment in Star wars as a thing where its at I'd be lying if I said this blog was overly to my tastes, but if you do like Star Wars maybe it'll do more for you. As is its a pretty standard recap of an episode and event that could perhaps better serve as a meatier look at the show. Also, its a bit gauche to fap your own blogs

May your fission be binary and your growth forever exponential.

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.
