LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 7/10/10 and 7/11/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

I don't have much to share with you all because the truth is I haven't played a video game in over a week. Instead I've been spending all my time reading Starcraft novels, getting caught up with the story for when Starcraft 2 comes out at the end of the month. In the last 5 weeks I've read 4 1/2 novels, and I hope to finish another 2 1/2 before the game comes out. You could say that I'm a little bit obsessed with Starcraft right now, don't ya think?

Besides that I don't really have much else to report. I guess I could mention that I'm selling my house and after being on the market for a little under 2 weeks, I finally have people coming to see it this week. Two different couples actually, so you could say I'm pretty damn excited. The housing market is complete shit right now, so if I could actually sell my house, I would be ecstatic. I know that's not video game related at all, but I thought you might like to know.

Let's get on with the weekend recaps shall we.

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!
