LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/19/09 and 12/20/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

After a nice long two week break, I'm back to my usual weekend cblog recap duties. I'm honestly wondering if anyone even noticed I was gone? Anyone at all? The reason I couldn't cover the recaps the last two weekends is because I was down in Orlando, Florida for 9 days straight, visiting Sea World, Disney World, and Universal Studios. It was incredibly nice to get away from my busy life for a while and relax. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end.

Because I've been gone on vacation for so long, I haven't really had the opportunity to play a lot of games. Just a couple days ago I did finally open up the copy of Batman: Arkham Asylum I've had sitting in my cabinet for 3 months. I'm only about 2-3 hours in, but I can already see why Destructoid is considering it for their GOTY award. It's incredible!

I've also been playing GTA: Chinatown Wars on my PSPgo. That game has gotten some incredible reviews, and I was really excited to play it, but I personally don't see what's so great about it. The gameplay is just ok, and all the characters in it are extremely unlikable. What is there to like about this game? Can anyone tell me.

This will be my last recap before Christmas, so I hope everyone who celebrates it has a very merry Christmas. Hopefully you all get everything you asked Santa for. That is assuming you have all been good. I hear that if you've been bad Santa will only fill you stocking with crappy games like Darkest of Days and Tony Hawk's RIDE. Trust me when I say you don't want either of those games, so you better have been good this year.

Before I go I just wanted to remind everyone that I will be posting my "12 Days of Destructoid Christmas" song in the cblogs in the next day or so, so look for that. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

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!
