LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 02/11/13 + mcgeeisms

   0


Another Monday in this short month has come to get you! There's been a lot of discussion all up in the C blogs, as well as the front page, and I must say: it makes for some good readin'. So first off: thank you. I don't have a lot of time to finish up my -isms today, so I just wanted to get that out of the way. It's been a good day to read Destructoid.
The folks participating in the Blogger's Wanted topic are especially engaging. Y'all made my Monday.

Blech. Short isms, unfortunately. I'll make up for it with pics! Maybe.
CAPSSPAC


For Shade


* - Revuhlooshun gives us a great read about Siren, and makes a point, very well, about suspense VS surprise. God bless Hitchcock. (Holy shit front page already!!)

* - Capitalistpig (another new one!) draws some parallels between Dead Space and Alien. I love it!

* - Historicnerd gives us a look at Missile Command and its seemingly biggest influence: The Cold War. Good video, Historicnerd!

M - Our newest Blogger's Wanted topic is yielding some fine results. Panzadolphin56's entry focuses on a game I've never heard of before, called Hellnight.

A - GlowBear has some wise words about Ostracisation. Even within already ostracized groups. She also makes me feel better with a Maya Rudolph gif.

M - cmstrott (he's a new guy) has dealt with hallucinations throughout part of his life, and videogames have helped him deal with them.

M - DaviesAntony is obviously a big fan of being afraid. He believes that the genre will always have something for us.

M - Dreamweaver makes a really good case that co-op can actually be scary!

M - yourbelovedpariah has a run in with a very familiar fear. Deep into that darkness peering, long he stood there wondering, fearing, doubting...

M - Fallout 3 was at times, a nice & scary game. For L3ED, it hit pretty close to home.

S - Carbon64 has another entry in his VS series. This time it's a couple of arcade legends: Super Street Fighter II VS Mortal Kombat II.

A - EdgyDude thinks about Nintendo's Wii U strategy a lot more than the typical commenter. This one may get you thinking.









T - Osga21 thinks we're about due for another game industry crash. I won't disagree; if the industry keeps going the way it is, without changing, it's almost assured.

T - levelseeker has a well-written non-review of Forza Horizon. He wasn't quite as keen on it as some people. Read on.

T - Spencer Hayes gives me flashbacks of a Memetoid gone horribly wrong some time ago. Thankfully, this is better. Are you happy, ShadeOfLight? Time to start claming your Pokemon while you can!!

P - SeymourDuncan fucking gets a goddamn hammergun boner.









F - She's just a girl and she's on fiiyyaaaaaaaa

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!
