LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 1/18/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

It is just me, or have a lot of the older members of Destructoid completely stopped posting as of late. Well that's not true, because a lot of the older members have come out to post about the recent drama. Not counting that though, it really doesn't fell like the older members are posting anymore. I don't know why that is, but I do know it has left the Cblogs feeling very empty and "blah" lately.

This emptiness, left by some of the older members, has started to be filled by newer members who are bringing their own flavor of writing, creativity, and art to the Cblogs. Some of these people, who I recommend you check out, include Tehmtnlion, Mikey, Rampancy, and seigfreid. They all have their own unique styles and personalities which I think adds a lot to the Destructoid community, and make the Cblogs not feel so empty anymore. There are many other newer members, of course, who also contribute a lot to the community, but unfortunately I can't name everyone. What I can say is that the Destructoid community is growing by leaps and bounds, and I hope we are all giving the new members the chance they deserve to shine.

Ok now onto the recaps .... but I of course can't start the recaps without your daily dragon picture. :-)

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!
