LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 10/30/09 + Mouseisms

   0
Hello, and welcome to the Friday recaps.

Firstly, it's official. I am the new regular Friday recapper. It's very great to be on the team and I hope I'll be here for a long time to come.

Secondly, that idiot, Valentin Seleznyov, has finally been banned. He bragged about his money and car to no end, and acted like he was above us. I cannot stand people like him and I am glad he's gone. I will not speak of this again.

Thirdly, I went running today. It was muddy but I enjoyed it. Now that I think about it, it's a bit like writing these recaps. It's hard work, but the end result is well worth it. Speaking of which, here, have this funny photo of me taken a few years ago when I was out running.



Hooray for embarrasment!

Finally, if you've been wondering where my header image saying "Mouseisms" is, fear not. We're in the process of resizing the images to accommodate the changes in the cblog image widths from months ago, so this will be finished soon, hopefully. With all of that out of the way, let's move onto the recaps.

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!
