LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 11/3/08 + Jimboisms

   0




I'm back, again... reading the cblogs of Destructoid in all its totality and recapping them for your reading pleasure. Your usual Cblog Recapper, the gentleman known as Casual Weaponry, unfortunately couldn't make the proceedings tonight due to a little thing called voting. So since I'm your recapper tonight I thought I would use this opportunity to tell you what games have been occupying my time to the point that I'm not writing blogs lately. Still playing Persona3:FES, as well as FARCRY2 which I liken to GTA IV in the jungle ( Love the game ), Little Big Planet, working on my next level and rounding it off: SOCOM:Confrontation.



Dear Lord, I can't stop playing this game. It's a drug you see. No multiple lives, no shields, no auto aiming, just you, your skill and a heartbeat from death or victory. With the latest patch this game is running like butter. Do yourselves a favor, if you haven't picked it up yet... now is the time to do it. With the bundled headset it's a steal and it rocks. The Destructoid Clan is in full force and this upcoming Saturday, SOCOM Nights debuts. Now that I have gotten that plug out of the way, let us take a closer look at what was before.

Spoiler Alert: There were a lot of interesting, newsy, strange and plain fail things you may have missed.

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!
