LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 07/31/14 + Dawn of the Final Week

   0




Yep, one week from now I'll leave good ol' Europe behind to find out what life is like across the pond. Everything is ready to go; I've got my passport, visa, plane ticket, hotel reservation for the first few days, a bunch of cash dollars (I've actually never held a dollar before) and everything else you could think of.

I can't actually bring my WiiU with me, so during my 5-month stay in your glorious capital I'll be missing out on Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2 and Smash Bros. WiiU, at least until I come home in January. That's obviously quite a blow, but at least I'm bringing my 3DS along so I can still get some sweet gaming done. I just bought Bravely Default to keep myself occupied on the plane, and since I'm pretty sure the 3DS eShop will still be accessible as long as I can get wifi there's lots of games to choose from should I ever run out of things to do. Although to be honest I don't think that'll happen even in 5 months.  

Are you ready?
Because I'm ready.

* - While nobody actually hates Catherine, naveenwf was looking for an excuse to write about his favorite game of all time. Any excuse is a good excuse to talk about Catherine!

* - RedHeadPeak wishes he could take his class on a school trip to Neo-Paris, the city from that oft-forgotten game Remember Me.

* - Sounds like Hamza has plans for Dtoid going forward. If that open call goes out I might give it a shot...after I've plugged LOADS of other 'toiders first.

A - I have no better caption for this blog than a quote from the blog itself: "For all my weird behaviour, obscure quotes, library of games, numerous gaming consoles, excessively big computers and meaningless information, she still loves me."

A - I DO like top 10s, and I like chiptunes. Thanks for this blog, I got some great listening material.  

P - DustinThomas is jumping back into his Podcast, which features Mario, Battleblocks, Batman and more!

S - Nintendette shares a weird little easter egg in the Sims series.

A - Oscarno continues his journey of making me want to play games based on their music alone. Like Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance!





F - Xbox FNF + It's getting hot in here! (so take off all your clothes)









L - Jesse Baule describes his experience of going to the loo only to find out you can't actually read Game Manuals anymore.

F - I don't know what's going on with Deus Ex, why don't you actually tell us?






- ShadeOfLight
May you always find water and shade

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!
