LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 03/26/14 + NIHILISMS

   0



Hello, Destructoid community bloggers. It's been a while yet.

Some of you may know me. Some of you may not. I am Nihil, a murder police in The Basement. I used to be a frequent blogger myself, on these here pages. There's a few excuses as to why I don't blog as much anymore. Foremost is because video games are horrible and should be banned and you all should be ashamed of yourselves. Secondly, it's none of your business. And last, your Mother.

BUT! I still care about reading your musings, so much so that I made a thread dedicated to showing Those Who Dwell Below what they're missing up here. A sorta cool-blogs-I-read-lately deal - not unlike these here recaps. And I have concluded, with my natural detective skills, that this made me a shoe-in as a reservist for the cblogs.

If you told me months and years and days ago that I would be a reserve recapper in 2014, I would've told you to shut up and go kill yourself. But now, in these dire times, it seems my services to the cblog community are required yet again.




* - Third Round of your MSpaints is go. You will literally get a cookie for each one you guess right.

* - Arsenic13 thinks about the children and the future of their online gaming environments.

* - Everyday Legend is a big fan of irony and corrupt politicians getting fucked in the ass. It just so happens I am as well.









I - HLBC is back, and explains why he hasn't made a blog in a while. His reasons are better than mine.


N - ktfX gives us the low-down on why Facebook buying out Oculus is pissing people off.

R - Old McDonald had a farm. And on that farm, he reviewed Silent Hill Shattered Memories, The Stanley Parable, and SteamWorld Dig. They're pretty okay.

R - Star Ocean is underrated, ROM'd, and reviewed. It's not piracy if they don't make 'em like they used to...

T - PopetheRev likes the Sonic and Outrun series, because they make him feel funny "down there".



A - A comic book review and recommendations by the elusive Hammershark.







Thus concludes our broadcast Recaps. Hope you enjoyed 'em. Thanks to Strider and Smurfee for the opportunity, and I'll see y'all 'round the bend!

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!
