LONG BLOG

Cblog Recaps of 11/17/09 + Pendeltonisms

   0


Late recaps are late, due mainly to the fact that I had...a sleepover last night. Yeah, a bunch of my pals came over, and we all got into our footie pj's and watched The Last Dragon and Hard Candy. There is no real situation where those movies should be shown together, but then again, I have some really fucking weird friends. If you've never seen The Last Dragon, then you don't know about the glory that is Sho Nuff. Google that shit and enjoy. It's blaxploitation at it's finest. As for Hard Candy, well...it'll make you think twice about talking to young girls online. As if Chris Hanson hadn't ruined that for you as is.

Enough about films, let's get into games. In today's recap, we've got a bevy of incredible Monthly Musings, the passing of The Age of Mascots, and blatant racism, of course.



*-Umm...wow. Who knew that Pong and Tetris were so fucking evil?

*-In this interesting Monthly Musing, nekobun finally blows the lid off this whole Pokemon thing.

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!
