C-Blog Recaps for 7/20/13 + Goodbye-gasms

   0




This is some bittersweet shit right here. As I said in my whiny blog, I am stepping down from being a recapper. My life is too shit, with too much going on right now, for me to have any extra on my plate. My brain is fucked and everything is..... everything is pretty shit. You guys cheered me up and pulled me out of the deepest part of that funk, but my situation hasn't changed. Thank you all for being so supportive of me. Shit makes me cry like a baby. I'm honored and humbled, to have such support from people like you guys. It gave me drive and helped me not be so down on myself.

The bright side of this is, you get a recapper who is not shit in my place. Let's be real, I suck as a writer. My only skill is that I can convey emotion like a mother fucker. I write from my heart and I believe it shows. Taking my place and returning to you folks is the fantastically awesome: Manchild. That's a big old cup of fuck yeah in my book. I'll still be around as a reservist to suck it up on occasion though. 

This set of recaps is special for me though. It marks my one year anniversary as a recapper. Wish I could do another, but... yeah. Let's end this (I'm getting really sad right now) and have some recaps and stupid pics, shall we?

* - Marche100 tells you about making a game (THANKS OBAMA!) and some other things in this great blog.





C - ManWithNoName has some ponderings on Ninty and the Wii U.

E - Weekend Warriors does video games live.

T - TheManchild is all up in Dark Souls again.

T - Kyle MacGregor tells us his favorites (so far) of 2013. 

T - Pope has some thoughts on TLOU *SPOILERS*

T - DiZZastergaming writes the best press release for Ubisoft I've seen in awhile.







F - Random thoughts, random fail. Take it to the forums.
F - Don't bother telling me what I'm watching, I won't bother watching. FAIL VID.


I'll see you guys in the forums or maybe in a stupid comment on the front page. I love some of you a lot. Except you. Fuck you.

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!
