LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 12/17/12 + mcgeeisms

   0

Welcome to Monday! One of the last Mondays of 2012, too. Or...the last one, depending on if you watch the H2 channel or not. The year is winding down, I'm winding up, trying to finish some things in a timely fashion.
So of course I forget to do any mcgeeisms beforehand. Happens a lot.

Since I last CAPPED, I've put a little bit of time into games, which is something I sort of enjoy. I rented Far Cry 3 (who does that anymore, amirite? *straightens tie*) and gave it a few hours. Seems like good times. It's a joy to just wander about, trying things. I prefer to go stealthy, because...well I don't really know why... regardless, stealth is my jam. The first thing I bought was a bow, and had a grand ol' time sneaking up on pigs and people. Shoot/stab/skin/loot. Not bad. But wait: *HEART ATTACK* what the fuck was-oh a Komodo Dragon. Okay. Heartbeat back to normal...oh look: flowers in the water. That couldn't possibly go wrong! *Pluck-OHSHITCROCODILEFUCKTHISGAME!*
The missions at the beginning were fun enough, too. The atmosphere created by the story is neat, but the story itself seems rather messy. It's amazing how fast things are forgiven, though, when you hand me a mountain-top and a hang glider.

I had some here and there play with a few things, some Wii games, some Halo 4, some Borderlands 2. I even hosted Sonic & All-stars Racing Transformed for the first Wii U FNF! Despite the god-awful title, the game is pretty fun. Motion blur is a real problem, though.

So yeah. Back to last-minute shopping, writing, prepping things I may or may not finish, and generally being a dufus. Better mcgeeisms: the perpetually out of reach goal.

CAP CAP. CAP CAP.




* - Wrenchfarm turns his addiction into a positive, by creating perhaps the most useful and informative piece of writing, about Mechwarrior Online, in existence. If you are even the least bit interested (or not at all, even,) in MWO, you must read this blog.

* - ManWithNoName explains why he thinks Far Cry 3 shot itself in the foot.

* - Another blog with some well-placed criticisms for Far Cry 3. Well-written stuff from levelseeker.

* - cyanosaurus asks a very pertinent question: What game would you choose to play as your last?

A - Marche100 has a poignant blog about Persona 3 Portable, and our perilous relationship with the impossible.

S - Sir Tobii has begun his Final Fantasy quest!

S - Marcunio88 continues his 12 Games of Christmas series, with day 4 being SSX 3. It's a fun read; check it out.

M - Blast73's best gaming moment of 2012 involves Dishonored, and some regret.






S - Mr. Andy Dixon sits us down to have the talk; to explain why our e-peens are growing.

T - SCndZ preaches the good gospel and implores you to try Street Fighter X Mega Man. I can't believe some wieners want to rain on this parade of old-school glory!

N - If you played Halo 4 within the first two weeks after launch, you can get the Crimson Map Pack DLC for FREE! Gotta do it NOW though. Thanks, 360 FNF!

T - nilcam has some of the first good impressions of the Neo Geo X that I've seen. Very nice!

R - TheKodu reviews Trailer Park King 3DD. It fares...pretty well, actually. wut

T - JeremyDaleWall bought a Wii U and has some first impressions of it.

L - ColtonPhillips jump-ropes across the line, back and forth from soul-music to number hell. Gamedev Poetry is invented.

F - pixelpunk has a trailer and some light info on the very interesting documentary, Minecraft: The Story Of Mojang. pixelpunk actually worked on it!

C - Sweatmode didn't write much...but he did make a humongous soundcloud with sound effects and speech and such.

L - Kibs has the solution for anyone questioning Bioshock Infinite's cover choice. He's improved Bayonetta's cover significantly.

L - Roberto Plankton has a good idea for some medals in CoD. Especially for them Christmas noobs.

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!
