LONG BLOG

C blogs of 6-7-10 and Qalamarisms

   0


It's amazing how quickly my brain shuts down after I finish up the hot mess of BBcode you see below you. In lieu of anything clever or relevant therefore, I present to you an offering of marginally entertaining Youtube videos.


Oh, and that I Hate Mountains Left 4 Dead campaign? It's pretty great. If you'd like to play it with me, my Steam name is also Qalamari.


*-Handy thought about how certain gaming personalities might advertise in the lonely hearts section of the newspaper. The results will be printed on a thin slice of dead tree and you can read them tomorrow morning... or just click this link here and find out about it right now.
*-Does every game need to have a story? One of LawofThermalDynamics' friends thought so, which resulted in this exciting! Dangerous! blog.
*-Since the C blogs have been used to form a choose your own adventure story, anything seems possible. Corduroy Turtle updates yet another road-trip favorite with modern Destructoid technology.


A-While the games/art hoopla is a bit played out in my opinion, Dennis C Scimeca had a fresh take on the concept: games modified specifically to act as art.
A-I've never seen minute one of Lost, so this blog by kjohnson1585 was wasted on me. Elsa says it's worth reading though, and that's enough of an endorsement for me.
A- Fission Mailed wrote down some thoughts about the impending motion-control peripherals for the HD systems, and why he thinks there's a better alternative.
S-If you're going to launch a new series, this is how you do it. BulletMagnet introduces his new series, Magnet School.
P-The cast...
P-of BritToid...
P-went and...
P-introduced themselves.


No contests today.



S-Kytherno had one of those store clerks every gamer dreads. Might be time to find a new game store when your clerk is a bully like this.
I-AusI0 used the format of his initial blog to let us know about Eversion, an indie game now available on Steam.
I-Meanwhile, Slade23 used his to make some E3 predictions. Welcome to Destructoid, both of you.


T-CrimeMinister just finished Mario Galaxy 2, and explains why it's such a rarity.
R-Taptostart took a look at The Simpsons Arcade on iPhone.



M-It's a musical maelstrom as vApathyv runs down a list of songs the new keytar Rock Band peripheral would be great for. If The Final Countdown isn't converted, there's no justice in this world.
M-Alakaiser has some good advice for those who have any sort of an interest in music.
M-Novakaine provided the background music for this session of recapping, paying tribute to Namco's composer version of Rodney Dangerfield.


R-Kaggen spoke in favor of the bizarre, going so far as to play an independent Japanese RPG.
V-DinosaurPizza made a video review of Red Dead Redemption.


F-You're admitting to pitching an idea that isn't your own, the blog has little if anything to do with gaming, and you're asking the community to do your work for you by voting for your concept? Three strikes. YerrrrOUT!

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!
