C-Blog Recaps for 6/9/13 Jinxisms

   0


Yes, the worst has come to pass. Jinx is a Cblog Recapper. You may know me from my assinine news comments, or my incongruously mature blogs. What can I say, there is something about comment sections that turns me into (more of) an ass. But don't worry. We're in the Cblogs now, baby, and I plan on keeping these recaps classy.



A quick bit about me:
As a Gen-Xer born in 1975, I've grown up with videogames as an industry. My first system was the Atari 2600, followed by the NES, Genesis, SNES, and N64. At that point I got my first PC, and I really haven't looked back. I love tinkering under the hood of games and hardware, and I even got my mod on as a mapper for Action Half-Life back in the day. I still find console hardware fascinating, though, and I follow The Console Wars as closely as ever.

Anyway, I'm stuck visiting my parents in BFE. Entertained myself last night playing Bunny Must Die on my netbook. It's a great metroid-vania title that deserves more attention, do check it out on Greenlight. Love the music, too. Not sure why it needs to go through Greenlight, as Rockin' Android has ports of other Japanese indie games on Steam already.



E3 is coming! Frankly, I can't remember ever going into an E3 week feeling dread. I'm not looking forward to learning more about how Microsoft and (probably) Sony are going to screw consumers, especially when the industry feels so close to a crash. Maybe there will be some great games to offset the bad? Please?

Maybe we'll learn more about Wolfenstein: The New Order. I didn't expect to want this game, much less be excited about it. But it looks to genuinely capture the over-the-top melodrama and fun of classics like Doom and Duke Nukem 3D. The moment I saw a Nazi get railgunned into red goop they pretty much had my money.



Still, I'm really hoping for some surprises at E3. Some game or piece of hardware that comes out of nowhere and makes everyone's jaw drop. We could use that.

* - bigboss0110 isn't happy to fall in love with gaming just once. Great blog about how a love of gaming can be rekindled over and over again.

A - Wrenchfarm discusses what he'd like to see from The Big Three at E3 this year.
A - MentalGaming discusses why he thinks the Xbox One won't kill used games, or even change much on the consumer's end of things.
A - TheDefenstrator has put together a short but sweet guide to Resident Evil: Revelations' Raid Mode.



You win nothing! Absolutely nothing!

S - Neshoba78 tells the story of his journey to the Animal Crossing: New Leaf  Nintendo World event. Tropical storms were braved, friends were made, and games were acquired!
C - Liz discusses some positive effects of gaming, including how it has helped her through hard times and inspired her. Very good first blog.
I - JoyfulSanity gives us a belated but wonderful introduction.
S - Benjamin discusses the pros and cons of taking a shot in the mouth to get to E3.

V - Ouya! DigitalMase just got his, and is sharing a short unboxing video and an open invitation to ask any questions you might have about the unit.
P - Germaximus shares his first impressions of the beta for Panzar, a PvP MMO. It's a nice write-up and the game sounds promising.
T - PopetheRevXXVIII discusses his love of the Ninja Gaiden franchise. Also, boob physics gone wild video.
T - Zombie Orwell makes some completely serious predictions about E3. I think he needs to eat more brainz.
T - Germaximus with some impressions of the Call of Duty Ghosts All Access livestream.



Do you really want to hurt me?

C - FiggDingo slams the Wii U in a short blog meant to generate discussion. Most of the discussion seems to be about whether or not he was just trolling.



No fails... today...

Oh yeah, screw all you kids in your 20s saying you feel old. And while you're at it, GET OFF MY LAWN!

Good night and good luck, peeps.

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!
