Cblogs of 9/5/09 and 9/6/09 + SilverDragonisms


I hope everyone has had a good Labor Day weekend so far, unless you are not American, in which case this was just another weekend. For those of you who are at PAX, I hope you all had a great time. I have to be honest and attest to the fact I hate all of you, but that's only because I'm jealous. I really wanted to go to PAX, but things just didn't work out. Instead I have enjoyed a nice relaxing weekend at home with my girlfriend.

Speaking of PAX, if you haven't checked out ScottyG's blog post with the video from Dtoid's PAX panel, you need to. The video captures the very end of the panel, at which time Chad and the rest of the Dtoid staff all sing a hilarious song they wrote themselves about the Dtoid community. You seriously have to watch this. I was pretty excited because I was actually mentioned in the song. Not sure how I managed that one, but it's pretty damn awesome. Qalamari and ScottyG were also mentioned.

In other gaming related news, I am finally getting around to playing Uncharted on the PS3. I can't believe it took me this long, but it was well worth the wait. I absolutely love it. It has it's flaws, but it's easy to forget them since there are so many things the game does right. I'll talk more about this after I've beaten the game, but for now just know that I'm playing it and I love it.

Well it's time to get to the recaps, so let's get this show on the road ....

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.
