LONG BLOG

CBlogs o' 7/8/13 + MacMangasms

I got up painfully early today to take someone to the airport so I may as well recap while listening to a metal album I need to review. As you can see, I'm trying to be very productive this morning but I'm tired, my coffee is cold, and this album is far from good. I'm a little punchy this morning so let's talk about something I don't understand in video games.

Remember the first time you played an FPS and you could look down and see your feet? "Woah!" I though as I looked straight down in Halo 2 and jumped a few times. Problem is the way the animation was, all I could really see was the lower portion of the legs doing something that looked like a knees to chest type thing you see in the Insanity workout informercials. 



Another thing is that your posture must be atrocious if that is all you can see. I look straight down, I can see most of my body, for better or for worse. I wonder at what angle you're craning your neck over, constantly. Even current generations games do this when the legs are included. Are characters models all designed like an early cro magnon man? Perhaps. Or maybe all video characters are actually Earthworm Jim. 




Now let's recap.



* - Sciony beat Demon Souls and writes a hilarious blog telling us all about it. The War of the Spanish Succession chart killed me.

* - A very heartfelt poem remembering Ryan.

M - JasonMacurey let's us know about the best options out right now for using a controller for the iPad.

A - SleepyFunny gets into how he's treated life like the respect bar in GTA 2. I just hope he hasn't graduated to GTA IV where his cousin wants to go bowling all the Goddamn-fucking-time.

A - Is the Ouya the console to have on when your girlfriend is around? Mikewa-ey thinks so.





R - Some nice words for Ryan Davis, may he rest in peace.

T - Shuuda-y gives us the scoop of a cool little game called Capsized.

T - Aoshisaney gives us his brief thoughts on COD vs Battlefield and how the argument is invalid.

T - GreaterThanGamey thinks Skyrim is overrated and makes some good points. Do you agree?

T - Oney offers his DOTA2 impressions. The bit about it appearing as boring as dicks really made me laugh.





R - Seymoury let's us know about Google's awesome point and click game about Roswell on their homepage. Bravo.

C - We get a few details on Hearthstone's latest move but the information is lacking and may not be reliable.





Christ, I'm tired. I hate this album. I hate my coffee. A mosquito just fucking bit me. I love you guys, though. I mean not like 'love you,' love you but you know, a few drinks in me and I might...

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!
