Cblog recaps 10/18/08 + Randombullisms

First: A big thanks to Yojmbo for making this awesome header. Nice work.

Second: A big thanks to Podtoid for letting me make Bonerquest. What was once a joke, now is a crummy world of plot holes and spelling errors. No really. I've outlined the majority of the game and actually have some things ready. My big concerns right now are the design of the monsters keeping with 8-bit look and of course living up the hype of Bonerquest itself. If anyone would like to test play it in a few days, that would be really awesome. Soon as I'm done recapping its back to work on Bonerquest.

A snippet of dialog from a towns person.

"You look like a man on a quest! Oh you need help with a boner. I can't help you with boners."

Did I miss the failure today? I always ask myself "Did I miss a post?" So if I missed a post, that's your failure for today. I worry if I erase things by accident as well or if I'm putting things in the wrong sections. Almost failed a few things, but I guess I was feeling nice today. I won't be so kind tomorrow night.



Back to Bonerquest talk! Hooray!

What music should be put in Bonerquest?

What do you like/dislike about role playing games? I'd like to know so I can have a better idea of what people want and don't want in Bonerquest.

What do you expect from Bonerquest?

Why does every question end in Bonerquest?

Will you accept the Bonerquest?

No seriously, that's the tag line. "Will you accept the Bonerquest?"

That's it for Saturday's 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!
