LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 03/27/09 + Garisonisms + a little ScottyGasm

   0

Today I watched the amazing Studio Ghibli film, My Neighbor Totoro for the first time. It seemed different from the previous two Miyazaki films I had watched. Howl's Moving Castle and Spirited Away both seemed much more complicated of films than My Neighbor Totoro. In order to understand the first two, I had to watch each multiple times (and by multiple, I mean 5+), and I still don't completely get both them.

MNT is just a simple story about 2 young girls that live move to the countryside with their father, and have a sick mom in the hospital. Well, I guess it is a bit more complicated than that, but you for anyone who has seen all of the films together, you know what I'm talking about. That, or I'm just talking out of my ass.


EDIT: Hello! ScottyG here once again. Garison was having some internet troubles, so I volunteered to finish up the last remaining dozen or so cblogs and post it for him. Think of it as a nice, filling experience with Garisonism topped off by just a little ScottyGasm... just a little one.

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!
