LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 8/28/10 and 8/29/10 + SilverDragonisms

So something REALLY REALLY big happened in my life this weekend, but I don't want to mention what it is yet here, because I plan to make an entire post about it. For now I'll just leave you all wondering what it is I'm talking about ....

I do need to mention that while I've been obsessing over Starcraft 2 the past month or so, I'm sorry to say that's all about to come to an end. I'll be taking a break from it, starting Tuesday, to play Metroid: Other M. I'm reviewing the game for Gamer Limit and I need to try and get through it as fast as possible. As soon as that's done with though I'll be back to my old stomping grounds in Starcraft 2.

Anyways, I don't really have much else to say right now. This was a crazy and awesome weekend and I can't wait to make a post telling everyone all about it. Until then, enjoy these weekend recaps.

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!
