C blog Recaps of 10/22/12 + mcgeeisms

   0

Whoa what? I died again. That's like...several times that's happened. Despite the community destroying me on a regular basis, I'm back for another mcgeeism/recap thingamajigg. I have some cool thoughts for you, but they're really not in order. Or even coherent. So let's skip that, eh? Another time for nonsense.

For now, capital recappings of Monday's bloggingkins. I will point out, without any sort of bias probably, that the Recaps team started a podcast. There was a trial tun of sorts which actually made it as an episode, and it's down there under Wordtoid. Unfortunately (maybe,) I was sort of busy during the weekend, so my sexy self isn't on the 'cast. Quite a shame for you all. But, we have the much better PhilKenSebben, Wrenchfarm, and leader StriderHoang (which is pronounced Strider HOH-ANG-EE) to soothe your souls.

So grab some whiskey, put your headphones on, start that podcast, and read some blogs by the fireplace. Because your fireplace is definitely by your PC. It's only logical. Mine is, so in case I get mad at the internet, I can throw something into a fire. That's what everyone does, right? Yes, correct. You get an B+.

CAPS in steree-eree-O.


* - Silent protaganists are very commonplace, but should they be? What circumstnaces make it okay to be a mute? Speak up, readers!

* - KingSigy takes a hard look at himself, and realizes he not only cheated (meh; not a big deal IMO,) but lost some of what made gaming special to him.

A - AbsoultePoppycock is making his high school newspaper much better by writing these articles. Check out his first: Are Videogames Art?

P - Another new podcast for that ass! (They seem to be cropping up all over the place, don't they?) This is full of weirdos, like most Dtoid podcasts, but the twist is it's more focused on the Cblogs themselves! Also, since it's all Recappers, I demand we have Beyamor as a semi-regular. So I can get a semi, regularly.



C - Still going on! Last chances to win some Resident Evil!

I - A new Dtoider for us to abuse! Not really. Loonywoman sounds like she'll fit in just fine. Because loony.

S - Sweatmode is back and has some updates for us about his life and indie dreams.

S - MeanderBot takes tasty pics at PAX 2012.

R - CarbonRevenge reviews Rollercoaster Tycoon 3D and it depresses the hell out of me.

A - I really like the way BeatBeat draws Mr. Destructoid. Go tell him you want some shirt designs!





F - Sadly, my Spanish has just gotten worse over the years. (Suck it, France.)

F - Even IF hockey was fun to watch, this would be spam. Spam4Always.

F - This bot has captured my heart and dropped my jaw. UltrasoundUltrasound.

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!
