Cblog Recaps of 3/3/09 + Pendeltonisms

   0




Wow, what a bitchin’ night. Earlier tonight, I saw, for the first time, Night of The Living Dead. While I had always heard great things about this movie, and knew about it’s cultural influence (all you RE fans should kiss Romero’s feet), I never had the opporitunity to see it. And, thank God, because tonight’s experience was the best: I watched it in a ACTUAL theater, surrounded by movie nerds, who thought the movie was as ridiculously awesome as I did. If you’ve never seen it, I HIGHLY recommend you see it. And, if you ever get the change to see it in a theater, please do so. Also, since this morning, I've had the battle music from Lost Odyssey stuck in my head, and it's made everything I did today that much more epic.

And with that behind us, on to the recaps! Tonight, we’ve got a great addition to the Monthly Musings blogs, opera virtuoso Topher Cantler, and 2 visits from our wonderful robot overlord.

I recapped the cblogs and I Jizzed. In. My pants.



*-Ok, wow (and perfect after the film I saw this evening); How the economic down-turn and RE/RE2 are very similar. Great job!

*-Fantastic new art from GrumpyTurtle, with the most awesome triceratops EVAR.

*-Sharpless has a great new blog (The Gentleman Gamer), and shows us an editorial from that site talking about all the hate Dante’s Inferno is getting.

*-My vote for a front-page Monthly Musings: reminiscing about the greatest gaming-comic series ever, Sonic the Hedgehog (and all spin-offs of said comics and cartoon shows).

*-What a great piece: Jonathan Holmes and his Wii bias blogs about why THIS is the best time for gamers.

*-And my second vote: Expanded universes within video games.

*-A great little series I’d like to point out here: The Obscurer Tribune, home of all off-beat gaming news.

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!
