LONG BLOG

C-blogs of 5-21-09 and Qalamarisms

   0


I've been working on a musing for this month's topic, as I've had a little more free time without school to worry about. I won't post it tonight, as I wouldn't feel right about topsaucing my own work... I'll leave that to my colleagues to decide. It's been fun though, so I've decided I'm going to start working backwards through the Monthly Musings topics over the summer, doing one for each of the topics I've missed in reverse chronological order. I shall call them-- Retro Musings. If anyone would like to join me in delving into the past, I heartily invite them to do so. It's always nice to have company.


*-Teta's cry for help was answered with bazooms. It's poetic, in a way.
*-Tubatic wrote eloquently in favor of the neutral path. Read it, unless you're too busy drinking penguin blood from a baby's skull or setting up an orphanage for crippled puppies.
*-It's-a me! (Dude. Lawsuit) Oh. Uh... Marco! Marco....Roni! Yeah, that'll work.
*-DocHaus points out what a crappy ninja Ryu really is.


A-Jack Maverick wrote a lengthy article about Persona 4. Unfortunately I had to pass it up due to the spoiler warning at the top.
A-This is a Games Time Forgot article in all but title: ErbilT wrote about the spiritual sequel to Strider called Osman, or Cannon Dancer in Japan.
S-Gemsi's weekly European release list has a little more meat on it than last week.
A-Kauza took an amusing look at lootin' stuff.
S-Mr. Dillinger's Weapon of Choice series takes a look at everything from The Darkness to Aussie pee in a jar in this update. Have I mentioned that I like this series?


No contests today. Here's the new sound files for TF2's Sniper and Spy!!




E-There was a movie night tonight, Rider Chop was showing Lupin and Labyrinth. You know, David Bowie is in every game.
I-Kezziebeat loves the Gameboy whole bunches, and uses them to make chiptunes. Welcome to Destructoid!
I-Welcome to Loogibot, who introduced himself by declaring love for Metal Gear: Ac!d. He's been drinking acid if the picture of his tongue is any indication.
B-Happy birthday to Suitcoat Avenger, who wrote one of his very good scattershot thought blogs in celebration.
B-Happy birthday wishes also go out to Laurence Tureaud. Really? That's his name? No wonder he goes by Mr. T. You could say that I have sympathy for the poor fellow.
B-Pendleton managed to cheat the reaper for another year...
B-So he got blitzed...
B-...and drunk posted a couple blogs. Happy Birthday!


N-The Kojima Productions teaser site changed a bit. Kojima-san continues to play the gaming press like a virtuoso violinist.
V-Phantom Spaceman posted the new Arkham Asylum trailer that hit today. DO WANT.
R-WashedUpGamer reviewed UFC 2009: Undisputed for the 360.
T-WW3PL wanted to know why the Halo games are so popular. This simple question provoked a LOT of discussion... oddly, much of it was about Team Fortress 2.
$-Daedhead8 is guilt-free thanks to Good Old Game's racer sale. Much <3 for that site.
T-Suitcoat Avenger shares some thoughts about the Onlive service and how mods just wouldn't work with it.
N-TewDee posted the updates for Team Fortress 2, they're now available on the PC.
V-Xbudz posted video of the upcoming 1 vs. 100 for Xbox Live.
R-Dai the Flu reviewed Sacred 2 for the PS3.
T-HappyHead compared the 16-bit Tiny Toons games side by side. Remember when consoles had exclusive games that weren't first party? Also... that is the longest blog title I have ever seen.
R-Brass wrote quite a bit about COD4: Modern Warfare, taking care to point out the similarities the main villian has to Rasputin. Come to think of it, a game played from Rasputin's perspective could be interesting. And Psychonauts doesn't count.
$-Amazon's deal of the day was Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume. Shawn Kelfonne thinks it's a good bargain.
R- Covah reviewed Terminator:Salvation. The game.


F-Conversely, Cowzilla reviewed Terminator: Salvation. The movie, not the game.
M-Quantum Zombie checked in to let us know that the inFAMOUS soundtrack is now available on iTunes. Maybe I should spell it iNFAMOUS?
S-Nilcam recieved his Neo Geo stick and this blog provides pictures of the unboxening.


L-Brando's post about idiots and motorcycles is very, very NVGR, but BrainDerailment helped with the funny.
V-FrankHowley posted the latest Mega64 sketch about Wolverine. I didn't think the movie was that bad. It was no Star Trek, but not much can aspire to that level.
C-While I appreciate that this is a first effort, it could use some serious cleaning up. Make sure to preview your posts before setting them live.
C-We don't mind developers making Cblogs to tell us about their games, but this just seems like an advertisement-- and those we don't much care for.


S-Oh no you don't. The cat is HERE, sir.

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!
