LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 11/18/2009 + Sykisms

   0


Let it not be said that I never write anything in this space, I probably gab on for far longer than anyone else in fact. Never mind that today though, I have Assassin's Creed 2 arriving tomorrow. Yes I know I'm a day or so behind everyone else but screw that, I hate everyone who's been playing it since Tuesday.

What I will fill this space with is a little something I'm planning on bringing to the Cblogs sometime next week. If you read Negative Gamer (a site about which I have an embarassing amount of jokes) then you may have seen what are internally called the iGame recaps (or that column I never have done in time). Well I'm bringing that series to the Cblogs, I'll have a more details prep post up later this week but basically I play all the games put up on the Xbox Live Indie Games channel in a week and then pass judgment. It's extremely cathartic and has given me loads of great games over the 7 months I've been doing it. Hopefully it'll remain as important to me after the move.

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!
