Cblogs of 5/30/09 + SilverDragonisms


For those of you who don't know, today is my 1-year Dtoid anniversary. Yep that's right, I have officially been a part of this community for 1 year. I don't know if any of you ever read my very first post where I introduced myself, but it was pretty bad. You can read it if you like, but let me warn you that I pretty much broke every single rule ever written about how to properly write a proper Cblog introduction blog. I had no clue what I was doing at the time, I hadn't read the rules, and I basically sucked. I have definitely come a long way since then huh. Well to celebrate my 1-year anniversary, I finally wrote an actual introduction blog today. Feel free to check it out if you care to learn a little bit about me and my love for video games. You might even learn something that will shock and/or fascinate you. Who knows.

Before I begin my recaps, I would just like to take a second to thank everyone who has helped make all my experiences here at Destructoid so memorable. A community is only as good as the people who it's made up of, and let me tell you that the people in the Dtoid community are what make it so incredible. Thanks for a great year everyone. Now it's time to begin my second year.

It's also time to begin Saturday's recaps ....

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.
