Today I woke up extra early so that I could make it to my local Best Buy at 11AM for the beginning of their $10 game sale. If the thought of waking up early to be some place at 11AM on a Sunday is hilarious to you, you should know I typically make it a habit to not even wake up before 11AM on Sundays. Suffice to say, my goal was to get to Best Buy in time to pick up a copy of Soul Caliber 4, Devil May Cry 4, and Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword before they were all sold out.

Well when I got to Best Buy there was already a line of about 20 people waiting at the door. I was tempted to just turn around and leave right then, but my awesome girlfriend convinced me to stay anyways. It's a good thing she did because I ended up picking up 2 copies of Soul Caliber 4 for the PS3, and a copy of Ninja Gaiden for the DS. I almost got a copy of Devil May Cry 4, but other people had already grabbed up all the copies before I got a chance to snag one. Suffice to say, I left Best Buy very happy indeed. Now I have an extra copy of Soul Caliber 4 that I need to give away. I just need to decide who to give it away to ....

Oh, I would also like to mention that my Carolina Hurricanes shut out the New Jersey Devils tonight 4-0 at home. I look forward to the 7th and final game of the series on Tuesday night! LET'S GO CANES!!!

All in all, it was a great Sunday. Now time for the recaps ...

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.
