LONG BLOG

C Blog Recaps of 11/12/12 + Anniversary mcgeeisms!

   0

These recaps are dedicated to knutaf, because I said they are.



Well, well. It looks like it's time for some mcgeeisms, for some reason. I mean, they should be all long and stuff, and express something or other for Dtoid. They probably won't though. I'm already pretty late with these. Which is somehow fitting.
These are are my anniversary Recaps, for two things at once! It has now been six years since I first joined Dtoid. That's quite some time. It's also my one-year anniversary of damning the Recaps team to their doom, by joining it.

I'd love to do something cool, but I'll probably save it for later in the week, so I don't trample all over the Wrenchisms and Tuesday bloggers. But, I will say that I still love the place and the people and the Recaps and the resurgence of podcasts and the Better People and the everything. It's why I joined the Recappers in the first place. I have a real appreciation for you people, and I wanted to do something to show it. In the past year, I've joined the Recaps team, started an FNF for the 3DS, sort-of started a weekend FNF thingy, been on a podcast, and generally interacted with even more cool folks 'round here. So I'd say that's not bad. I want to do more, but it's been alright. :)

So thanks, staff and community alike, for being cool motherfuckers. The internet would suck without you.
CAPTAIN CAPS





* - Caliban has some wonderful words for us. He's got some great observations about Dishonored, as well as a suggestion on how it could be better. Specifically, in its prologue.

* - A competitive multiplayer version of the MAX SCOVILLE MOUNTAIN DEW CHALLENGE SPONSORED BY DORITOS AND H4LO. Goodbye, Dtoid Seattle. We hardly knew ye.

* - They should make a movie out of this blog, and call it...Drive. Yeah, that would be good.

A - TheKodu reminds you to WATCH YOUR ASS, early adopters. It will happen.

A - Hey! Come watch this guy die! Brandon Dickerson has a story to tell you before his inevitable death. Minecraft is definitely involved. Also, I like this.




THE LOW(ER) TIER PODCAST IS STILL GIVING AWAY ASSASSIN'S CREED 3!

I - tav7623 is new here (the RE2 remake fellow,) and his intro is introspective. Good luck on the backlog! :)

I - Thabass in the hotness. Deal with it. And welcome it. If it gets out of line, slap it. Slap Thabass. /wrists

T - From a blog on beginnings, we jump straight to a blog on endings. Screw the middle. DaviesAntony asks the question, answers it immediately, and explains his answer.

T - aileronroll has some thoughts about nostalgia, and isn't really feelin' it for the current gen.

D - Ev777 has a game to share with us, or, 1/3 of a game. Welcome to Boo Reed's Odyssey.

T - Thabass doubles up with an real blog about being first and/or best. For gaming consoles, that is.

A - anglorum does a super-cool ART for this month's Artists Wanted. It's in the style of Jet Set Radio Future, so you know you want to look at it.

R - Windows 8 may or may not hate people who play games their PC.

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!
