LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 10/21/08 + Pendeltonisms

   0

Alright, folks, before we get started today, I’d like to draw attention to one of the blogs not in the Top Blog area.. galabug wrote today about a DLC system the Super Famicom hadcalled Satellaview. Read more about it on his blog. Anyway, as I was looking up information about it, I found out that, in Japan, there was a SNES remake of the NES Zelda game called BS Zelda no Densetsu. I was able to not emulate it this evening, and, I have to say, it’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Aside from the Link to the Past graphics, the game has a real-time clock that relates to events that happen at certain times on the map, AND the choice to play as a girl (there’s no Link or Zelda in the game, just Satellaview’s mascots) from the beginning, AND an even more different dungeon placement than either quest on the NES. If you’re a fan of the original NES game AT ALL, you deserve to not play this game in any way possible.

With that behind us, on to the blogs! Tonight, we’ve got massive amounts of fail, a bunch of rat bastards getting LittleBigPlanet, and a survey about wiping your ass. AND HERE WE GOOOOOOOOO!

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!
