LONG BLOG

C-blogs of 12-7-09 and Qalamarisms

   0


I'll keep it short and sweet here. Thanks again to Funktastic for filling in for me last week. I was taken down by a fast-moving illness from which I have not yet fully recovered. If you have some free time over the next couple of weeks, why not check out some Mystery Science Theater 3000, now showing on Hulu? Sadly, Space Mutiny is not among the episodes currently available, but perhaps in time...

Anyway, let's get to those recaps, shall we?


*-Ain't enough Product in the WORLD to make Seymour Guado's haircut in real life. Might be fun to try, though.
*-Ckasaru wrote up an indie game that (graphically, at least) reminds me of Cave Story in the best possible way. Why not have a look?
*-LK4O4's blog makes me wish I'd bought Space Invaders Extreme 2 last week when it was the deal of the day at Amazon. But this month's been ruinous on my wallet as it is. Check out the art project near the end, though.
*-Ubersuntzu wrote up a licensed game from days gone by... and he swears it doesn't suck.


A-Bulletmagnet is a connoisseur of the obscure. Here he recounts his efforts to import and play Mushihime-sama Futari. It's fairly epic.
A-Brutal Legend isn't a bit like Earthbound except for being a quirky title with a unique sense of humor that not everyone will appreciate. Oh, now I get it.
A-Campbell00 wrote up a great list of tunes from some older games that have made getting through the back half of the recaps today much more entertaining.
M-SykoShadow's introduction is also a Musing about his love/hate relationship with Mark Ecko's Getting Up... and he works Uncharted 2 in there, too.
M-Ifrit2K5's Musing for the month looks at some plastic guitar games.





E-DtoidEurope is having a New Year's blowout, and YOU'RE invited! (Transportation not included.)
E-DtoidSF will be rockin' tha eff OUT at Umloud, a charitable event with all proceeds going to Child's Play.
S-Capm Trevo needed help, and the community was there for him.
S-Puppy Licks is about to start his World Tour and wanted to take care of some business first.
I-Welcome to Kibs, a refugee from Brian Crecente's Hair Palace.


N-Early rumors about the PS4's hardware have started. I think the economy is going to keep the current generation of hardware static for at least a few more years.
R-AndrewG009 reviewed Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising.
T-NightV thinks the rumor that Sony might be helping to fix Bayonetta might be leading to better games all around.
T-G-off wrote about reviews. This might be worth clicking on if you're a Blehman fan.
P-HBL thinks everyone should at least TRY the Bayonetta demo.


A-DanMazkin designed a shirt. What do you think?
A-This "Tattoo" makes me feel all suspicious. I think it might wash off if you doused it in Root Beer.
M- Nekobun is in control for dTunes this week.


R-Kavahn NightViper Mansouri (Geez, that's a mouthful. I'm just gonna call you KNVM from now on, 'k?) thinks the Sims franchise is promoting (or at least tacitly approving of) date rape.
R-Megastryke found some oddly familiar toys at his local mall...
C-There's a forum thread where you can post the games you've beaten. Just saying.
C-Welcome to the community and all, but we'd really prefer you not just dump everything you've ever written here before you introduce yourself.


F-If I weren't so polite, I'd invite you to perform a biologically impossible act upon yourself. Anonymouse, though? You're brilliant.
F-God, I go away for a week and everything goes to hell.
F-This is like surreptitiously putting meat juice in a man's underpants the day before he visits a poodle farm. Funny, but WRONG.
S-Oh, come on now. This was over before Sunday Night.

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!
