LONG BLOG

C-Blogs of 2-22-10 and Qalamarisms

   0


So how was your weekend, ladies and gents? Do anything fun? Me? Just this...



I'll have more later today on my personal blog. For now, it suffices to say that the robot knows how to party. My thanks to CTZ for the invitation and to Niero, R3y, and all the rest for opening up their home so that others could have a good time.

We've got a lot of new members introducing themselves today, some egregious fail, and some most entertaining replies to said fail. Let's get to it.


*-Don't "Turn-up" your nose at this great Musing about Animal Crossing by Beyamor. Go ahead and groan. I can't hear you from here.
*-I think we've all been here. Steph Louise K wrote about the difficulty in performing triage on your game collection.
*-Metallion's Musing: Mario, Mustaches, Miyamoto & more.
*-While this Musing from Sentry wasn't in time for the Love/Hate topic cutoff, the extra time it spent cooking shows. It was worth the wait.
*-SuitcoatAvenger's artblogs are always a treat for the eyes.


A-ZServ considers the role of a 25-year old Hylian in today's modern world.
A-Tectonic thinks the fact that Rapture is the same as before isn't a bad thing.
A-GameZombie wrote about his hatred of QTEs. I guess zombification would slow your reaction times, come to think of it.
A-Novakaine also wrote about QTEs, and the golden rules of how they should and should NOT be used.
S- Stevil's Gamer Obscura feature takes a look at the anime version of Die Hard in this look at Hard Edge, also known as TRAG.
S-Iiiiit's Monday. Time to wish NihonTiger90 a happy birthday and let him know What'd You Get?


No community contests. My Simpsons reference from two weeks ago was most closely identified by Handy. The quote was, "Romance is dead. It was acquired in a hostile takeover by Hallmark and Disney, homogenized, and sold off piece-by-piece. This was said by Lisa in season 6's Another Simpsons Clip Show. If you're wondering what this is all about, check my Qalamarisms from 2-1-10.


I-Welcome to Destructoid, MrWutsGood.
I-Greetings are also in order for Hkun. Welcome!
I-And a hearty hello to NateT, who once turned down a nice big bowl of bullwang soup.
I-A wild InfinityBit appeared! Command?


N-CaseyJones77 shows us that project Natal is being tested under armed guard. Or that it works in the microwave. Something.
V-I usually don't have time to waste watching PS3 fanboys embarrass themselves, but Crunshii shows one really outdoing himself.
T-Haxan's thoughts on the controversy stirred up by Matt Razak's use of the iconic Vietnam gun-to-the-head image over the weekend.
T-Double Decade Gamer never bought Donkey Kong 64, so the memory-expansion fueled joys of Perfect Dark were but a fantasy.
T-MonkeyKing1969 nitpicked Mass Effect 2.
T-Tubatic doles out some quick hits concerning his thoughts on recent gaming news.
T-MrWutsGood wrote a bit about how video games are priced.
T-Drel prefers his games not rely on online for the bulk of their content, please.
T-Steve Scott thinks motion control is stupid.
R-Beegzz reviewed Bioshock 2.


F-James Andrews watches The Tester so you don't have to.


R-MrPlow8 thinks face clocks are obsolete. My Mickey Mouse watch is giving you the finger. Ohh, double deuce now.
R-Rather appropriately, RandomBullseye wrote a random collection of thoughts centered around doing research outside the game.
L-This parody Cblog skewers the second fail down there. Nicely done, Gobun.
L-And then Occam's Electric Toothbrush went and won the whole goddamn internet.
L-At this point it was getting pretty ridiculous, so RenegadePanda did what he could to get things back on topic. Mmm... 64 slices of American cheese.
?-This is another reply to another fail, but I'm still trying to wrap my head around how 007 got that text to scroll in BBcode.


F-Even if all the picture links WEREN'T broken, I get the distinct impression that I wouldn't want to see them anyway.
F-This is just racist. Fortunately our community doesn't tolerate that shit.
F- (Yawwwwwn)

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!
