Cblogs of 2009/10/01 and ScottyGasms



Hello once again my pretties. ScottyG here giving you a healthy dose of a ScottyGasm.

To be honest I haven't been up to all that much. Got laid off right before PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAX, and spent the week after PAAAAAAAAAAAAAX sick in bed. Since then it's been a lot of sloth and video games with very little in the way of job hunting. I did manage to get a temporary job though which pays depressingly well (compared to the previous jobs I've had), but I do need to get my butt in gear and figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life. ;)

Gamewise I replayed No One Lives Forever (<3) with the intention of making a "Forgotten" Monthly Musing. It's a bit late for that now but I still intend to do a writeup as it's a criminally underrated game and Kate Archer is another perfect example of a good female protagonist that people keep overlooking.

I also played through Tomb Raider Underworld, managing to get 1000GS on it. Planning on doing a review, possibly with more nekkidness. Is it sad that the only two games I have 1000GS on are both Tomb Raider games?

Now if you'll excuse me it is my birthday tomorrow (technically today I suppose), so I best be getting to bed. <3 <3 <3

Also... Tucker Max adverts? I know you gotta pay the bills and all, but WTF Dtoid? Everybody knows that Maddox > Tucker Max a million times over. :)

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.
