LONG BLOG

C-Blog Recaps for 6/23/13 + Jinxisms

   0




My friend Troia sent me this pic a couple days ago. No idea where it's from. Think she was being sarcastic? Naahhh...

Saw Man of Steel Sunday night. 6/10 would not bang. It had some good ideas, but the execution was poor, the editing choppy, and it was visually bland - like someone lowered the color saturation of the movie by about 50%. And, of course, the plot holes and the casual indifference he seems to have toward "collateral damage"...



Had some fun last week finally getting around to making a collar inspired by Gaige's from Borderlands 2. Despite my nerdiness, I frequent and sometimes DJ industrial club nights, so coming up with edgy but geeky stuff to wear is kinda fun. The easiest way to make one is to buy a spiked collar with spikes that are easy to remove (many just screw in). That way it's easy to expand the existing holes to make room for the nuts and bolts, which are only a few bucks at Lowes, Home Depot, etc. Anyway, here ya go. Looks much cooler on, as it gets rid of the kinks:



And now for those C-Blogs!




* - Mass Effect & Gender - Joanna makes a fascinating argument for the possibility that Saren was transgender.



A - Xbox One - KenGreyStar considers how Microsoft might better have handled the DRM situation from a business standpoint, and even mixed policies to get the best of both worlds.











R - The Last of Us - Kovalski gives us an excellent, spoiler-free review of the game - and includes some gameplay tips as well.

N - Ouya - Jabbawocky describes the issues there have been with Ouya units getting delivered to its Kickstarter backers, and how it doesn't look very good for the system or its makers..

T - Xbox One - JenSev explains how Microsoft's DRM reversal may have quite a few loopholes.

T - Super Smash Bros - Salvador introduces himself and offers some advice on how Nintendo might best promote the Wii U version of the new Smash Bros. game.

R - TELEGLITCH - Calzoniburger tells us more about this clever indie title.

T - Fallout - Taterchimp offers a smart critique of certain gameplay mechanics in New Vegas & Fallout 3.



F - Star Trek - Tia discusses how Trek has failed to address LGBT issues. I love Star Trek, but I think she's got a point.





L - Xbox One - Fyrebrand shares a comic about Microsoft's DRM turnaround.






*looks around*

Hmmm. Yeah, I think I've done enough damage for this week. Now check out those blogs.

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!
