I am your new Sunday recaps overlord. Bow before my might. In about an hour.


Thanks for all the blogs to recap this Valentine's Day, keyboard peons. Gonna take advantage of your unseemly sloth to chillax with some Apple Jacks.


Fiddlesticks! Someone forgot to lock the shed and one of our reservists almost escaped. Good thing we captured him before more damage was done, and now he is once again safely locked in our underground deep-fryogenic containment cell.


The Recap team might soon be in need of sweet blood, fresh blood, new blood to fill our halls. If you're potentially interested in being a recapper why not inquire below? Why not inquire below? Why not inquire below?


Come my children. Read my latest (hasty and poorly structured) musings. Contemplate existence. Resent being born. Mourn the fragility of experience.


The grandeur of the Recap team anew accepts fresh Reservist recruitment. Learn, and know, and gain, in today's Recap, or comment/message this account as you will. The wind *will* blow. Glory to Recapkind.


No Sunday recap today. Found out someone in the reservist shed was experimenting with funguses and they've become semi-sentient (imagine like a crying new born child), so we're burning it out. Also, Rio has a pretty bad cold.


It's dangerous to go alone! Take this.


The live action of Animorphs looks weird.


The Reservist Shed found a way to make cats portable, but we're still not sure where the cat came from.


The Reservist Shed's latest attempt to sleep through the perpetual screaming failed.


It kinda of smells like fried pastry here


Good morning East coast. Mars says hello.


Today's recap isn't brought to you by Paradigm, but it is still a pretty neat little game that swooped under the radar. I'd say it is Reservist Shed approved, but I don't think they approve of much besides the abuse of the scientific laws as we know it.


Attention folks. There has been a catastrophe in the Reservist shed. Body parts and fluids are everywhere but our best janitor, Gamemaniac, is cleaning it with his tongue. We gave him a mop but he said he was hungry. Weirdo. Crisis is contained. Carry on.


I forgot to add Wes' contest to the newest Cblog Recap! (Now rectified) You can have a digital building named after you in the new game Symmetry!!! (Link in comments)


No recap today, I'm choosing life.


Some really handsome bald fellow posted the answers to his very first AMA last night. (link in the comments)


The Reservist Shed has apparently been barred from the nearby car rental shop.


Last year, 15 blogs: le fussed. This year, 15 blogs: Le CRUSHED. Flame, dear children, signs the demarcation 'tween the Chosen, the Ashen...and the Crestfallen, the Cindered. So the blogs might be mended. Umbasa.


Apparently one of the new reservists actually knocked a wall in during The Initiation. Considering the contents seem covered in glow-in-the-dark paint, they must be pretty old and may scare their new owners when night comes.


The bell rings dear children, drawing in the swine from the gutters and the nobles of palaces alike to the Recap Mansion. We are currently looking for a new recapper of tuesdays blogs, and you should feel free to submit yourself for consideration.


Ssshhh, it's okay, the recaps are coming soon...


I hope you have yourself a lovely little day surrounded by the people you love who love you too. Maybe even use all the sales going on to send someone you care about a gift? A small game to let them know that someone cares about them no matter what.


This new podcast I'm listening to about Revolutions makes me worry about the Roundheads in the Reservist Shed. Must make sure to install a fake duke among them to make sure that I know exactly when they plan to overthrow the crown.

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.
