LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 03-30-09 and ScottyGasms

   0

Hello my little dtoiders. Looking through the recaps tonight I've noticed a lot of angst and flaming towards blogs. Particularly by certain people who I have consistently seen excessively flaming. While I'd like to just attribute it to a case of the Mondays (yeah... I went there :P), I definitely think there are a few people here to need to chill the fuck out and stop taking things so seriously. Suck blogs are going to suck which kinda sucks, but you don't need to go on a personal crusade to stamp them out.

Am I alone here? Has anybody else noticed some anger issues within the community lately?

Too late at night to really write about much else, although I did get a missed package notice today. If it's what I think it is I'm going to have a very happy cblog in a few days. ^_^

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!
