LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 07/03/09 + Garisonisms

   0



I've been spending a lot of time away from Destructoid and the internet lately. School is out, so I've been partying and hanging out with friends a lot, but it's really nice to get back to the Cblogs and read everyone's stuff.

It was a really awesome day for Cblogs by the way, bravo guys. As you can see by the heaping bowl of topsauce sitting in front of you, you are in for one hell of a meal. Even all the failblogs don't outweigh the win today. I started my recap at 8:30 PM, and it is now 1:00 on the button. Solid 4 and a half hours of Cblog reading. Just what I needed.

One more thing, I just wanted to give a new community member, Elsa a shoutout. I saw her frequent comments around the site today, which are all very thought out and intelligent, and went back and read all her previous blogs. Great stuff, can't wait to see what great content you can bring to the site. <3

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!
