C-Blog Recaps for 6/17/13 + PhillyCheese-gasms

Hey it's a me! Das Phil! As some of you may have guessed, I had a horrible fucking Father's Day, but that's in the past now. FUUUUCK IT! You might be wondering where Smurfee is, but most likely not. I mean who would? Let's just all be thankful he is not here. Unfortunately that means you're stuck with me. Not much better eh?

i find myself pretty excited today. Tomorrow I am guesting on Scary Granules podcast. I'm honored to be among the accents. In more game related stuff, Shadowrun Returns has definite release date now. The only shitty part is it's not next week (like we were led to believe), but next month. Either way excited to see how that turns out. I am a little more reserved and cautious about it now though. Not by much, but a week from release and getting pushed another month, does give me pause. I know they ran out of funds and had bugs in the editor, I just hope that's all it is. More bug stamping and polish. The game looks incredible from all the footage I've seen, but hey. That's happened before and we ended up getting shit. Maybe I'm too cynical these days, but I can't blame myself. Devs and publishers have pulled a lot of shit these past few years. Either way, fingers crossed and I hope it's as good as I think it will be.

I tried out Akaneiro last night. You might have read a little about it in Jinx's recaps. It is a simple, yet fun game. Gorgeous visuals, but it needs some work and I really hope they switch their f2p model. They should sell vanity items only in the PC version and up the difficulty (it was quite easy). The one thing I ran into (and I guess I'm in the minority) was a cooldown after 20m or so of play. It might be because I had just started, leveled up or w/e, but that is a huge pet peeve of mine. Keep that shit for mobile platforms, but on a PC I want to play the game I'm digging. Not wait 5m to do the next mission. This shit ain't Facebook. I'll be keeping a close eye on it, the devs seem to listen and the game shows a lot of promise, so once again, fingers crossed.

Other than that, still playing Raid mode in Revelations, just got The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing (looks hot, word is sp is great), looking forward to Fist Puncher in the next couple days and that's about it. Let's get to capping, shall we?

Hint: Yes.

Well that was Monday for you. No sauces, a few fails and everything in between. Hopefully we see our blue friend return next week. I miss him, despite knowing better than to do that. Have a good week and see you all on Sunday. I need lunch....

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
The Adaptation

Some things don't belong in this world and yet they are conjured time and again by humans that wish to pay them tribute. A video game, book, comic or TV show becomes popular and later becomes adapted to another medium entirely or, worse, a mobile phone spin-off.

Sometimes you get Telltale's The Walking Dead and other times you get Super Mario Bros.: The Movie -- one a great tribute to the comics and TV shows and the other had its soul stolen and made a '90s movie executive's slave.

And here comes another classic game series with hopes of becoming a Netflix hit as I brace myself and hope it doesn't turn out to be a miserable pile of secrets.

Castlevania is a beloved series and with Konami it's sort of a surprise they'd do anything with it at all after running out the people that made their games good and running the franchise into the ground soon after. Yet here we are with an anime series debuting this week and I'm kind of excited for it.

History should leave me a bit more cynical, sure. I remember the Street Fighter live-action movie, the Zelda cartoon and much more, but Mortal Kombat was perfect in its camp and The Witcher games are pretty faithful to their source material. We even have games being adapted into other kinds of games by different developers. Borderlands is now a looter-shooter and a point-and-click adeventure and that works really well, actually.

So for this month's "Bloggers wanted," we want you head over to the community blogs and tell us about your favorite adaptations of games to other mediums or even your favorite adaptation of another medium to games. Use "The Adaptation: [Your game/title here]" in the title and place "Bloggers Wanted" in the tags.

Enough talk, have at you!
