Cblogs of 4/7/09 + Pendeltonisms


Without a doubt, one of my all-time favorite games is Lumines. I havenít been gaming much on my laptop recently (because itís shit), but I did some digging last week and found I had Lumines on it. And Iíve played it for about 5 hours each day the past week. Iím not sure if itís because of the music, the visuals, or the new puzzle type they developed, but I can safely say that Lumines is the greatest puzzle game ever created.

Tetris can suck it.

Alright, now with that flamebait out of the way, letís move on to the recaps! Today, weíve got unstopablejuggernaut making me feel like Iím playing Left 4 Dead with him, 2 different views on the new Bionic Commando game, and a few new members joining our ranks.

For you, the day Pendelton recapped the Cblogs was the most important day of your life. For me, it was a Tuesday.

*-FRONT. PAGE. THIS. IMMEDIATELY. A letter to The Combine Overwatch (possibly one of the best things Iíve ever read on the cblogs).

*-ygro looks back on his history of gaming with his first love: PC games.

*-Since there isnít a section to put blogs I want to have sex with, I guess this will be good enough: juggernaut makes the craziest video ever. And, Jesus Christ, hereís another one.

*-Still my favorite cblog articles, this weekís Dtoid Community Discussion is about GDC.

*-Professor Pew reviews the new Hannah Montana game AND gets put on a sex offender registry at the same time!

*-Who here wants a beautiful, amazingly well-crafted, handmade Destructoid helmet from craineum?

*-THIS IS WHY I LOVE THIS COMMUNITY: megaStryke writes a great response to Tascarís Nintendo article.

*-Like you didnít already know this was gonna be up here: todayís GrumpyTurtle pics.

*-Darth Vader mixed with Bricktop from Snatch. Holy shitÖ

*-Hahaha, a list I never knew could be made: the top 10 JUMPS in gaming. Awesome.

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.
