LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 1/20/09 + Pendeltonisms

   0


I think that this might be one of the greatest weeks I've seen in a long time, and it's only Tuesday! First, yesterday, having MLK Day off, I did what anyone would do to celebrate the great Civil Rights leader: stay in the house and watch a Powerpuff Girls marathon while finishing Symphony of The Night. As if that wasn't enough, today's historic inauguration was a beautiful thing to behold. But, it's not nearly as cool as what I picked up today: LEFT 4 DEAD!!! I'm finally one of the many to become a Survivor, and I've loved every minute of it. As the rest of the week goes on, tomorrow promises my first glass blowing class and the season premier of Lost. Thursday is free dinner with my folks, and Friday, I'll hopefully participate in my first FNF with the Dtoid gang!

Awesome.

Anyway, in today's recaps, we've got tits galore, a Xenu-hating Shamwow spokesman, and, for some ungodly reason, Alf.

I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Recaps, and will, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Cblogs of Destructoid.



*-Because, honestly, who’s not a fan of tits…the best jubblies in video games.

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!
