Cblogs of 3/7/2018 - Tagging in & EGLX

Dere is unable to recap today so the coach is making the call and putting your boy CelicaCrazed in from off the bench. Get up, let’s go! Time to hustle! This being my first recap it would probably be a good idea for me to do a l...


Cblogs from Feb. 15 and 22!

Hey guys! It's another week, and another recap with me! Did you miss me? Sorry about that, I had some technical difficulties while house sitting one week, was busy last week. But I'd like to give SrChurros a shout out for coveri...


Cblogs of 2/21/18 + Taming my Backlog

Just as recently as last year, I saw most everyone posting on here about trying to wittle down their backlog.  I honestly had very little if any experience with that.  I was still gaming on the Xbox One at the time and didn'...


CBlog Recaps of 02/20/2018 - Step Forward

Sorry, I had an -ism topic all prepped for this week, but then I reconsidered after ascertaining it to arrive too quickly for its intended discussion. This leaves me without a relatable (to me) subject to cover at length. Fortuitously...


Cblogs of 2/9/17&2/16/18+Warcrack

Warframe sure is good. I know I've already talked about this to some degree before but after playing even more of it I'm pretty hooked. I recently even tossed more money at it for some of the premium currency which brings the grand to...


Cblogs of 2/14/18 + Wishing for More Time

Hello all.  I'm back after my week hiatus.  Thanks to Larx for covering my rear last week as I've been dealing with flu/sinus infection/upper respiratory infection for myself and then my wife.  But things are getting ba...


Cblogs of 2/5/2018 + Lost Recap + New Job

I actually had a recap subject ready and typed two days ago. However, I wrote it at my work PC and forgot to email it to myself prior to doing this. At least I have a recap ready for next week then. Anyways, since I don't have anythin...


CBlog Recaps of 01/30/18 - First Storm

Why are things "all the rage" when we never utilize "rage" as "object of rabid enthusiasm" in any other context? Are we so handcuffed to English conventions that we cannot break free of our shackles, never to return again to those phr...


Cblogs from Jan.18, 2017! Also hey guys!

Hey guys! It's your new Thursday Recapper, NeoTurbo! I've been on Destructoid a long time, but only really started getting into the community in the past year or so. So I guess I just write some personal life updates here or whatever?...

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.
