LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/08/08 and Qalamarisms

   0


Greetings, Destructoid. You may have noticed a few changes over there on the sidebar. We've added the legend we use to classify your Cblogs to the profile for easier reference. Additionally, a few new recappers have been added, and I have the honor of being your regular Monday host for the foreseeable future. Please join me in welcoming SilverDragon1979 and ScottyG to our incestuous little recap family. I'm excited. Are you excited? I'm excited.

I've had the Dragon Quest Ballet running in the background the entire time I've been doing the recaps today. That music is phenomenal. I'd heard bits and pieces of it over the years, but if anyone can point me to where I can acquire the whole thing, I'd be quite grateful.

Anyway. Mondays are always busy, so on with the recaps!



*-An alternate point of view on Left 4 Dead. Tongue firmly planted in cheek. I hope.
*-Holy crap, Faith sighting. And she made something really cool out of Perler beads.
*-This has to be seen to be believed. I hope someday someone can do this with Mega Man 9.
*-Sit down, shut up, and listen to Y0j1mb0. School is in session.
*-Sir Sterling's anti-fan club is always good for a laugh.

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!
