LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/25/08 + ScottyGasms

Happy Holidays everyone! Hope you all spent it with some loved ones, ate too much good food, and possibly got a good haul of presents as well. I know I did. :)

I've also decided to start a new Christmas tradition: watching the "Christmas With the Joker" episode of the Batman animated series. For those who have never seen it this is what you're missing out on:


Seeing as there was no Cblog recaps yesterday, I'll just do the ones starting with the beginning of Christmas day.


*- Randombullseye gives us Bonerquest
*- Yeah, I'm topsaucing my own cblog. On top of it being awesome and getting front-paged, it's a nice perk for doing recaps :p


S- Latest episode of dTunes, featuring SilverDragon1979's 12 days of Christmas song


E- Possibly late Persona 4 entry


S- eBay and Sony do a tag team on poor Edco
H- Darkknight37's basement setup, updated with new tv
C- NihonTiger90 looks back at 500 cblog posts
S- Some favourite game moments, but how did he get time to place all those proximity mines?


R- Castle Crashers review. Hella late, but at least they actually waited for that goddamn patch...
T- L4D community is nice, yay!
T- A top ten, and several other lists waiting to pounce on the unwary web-surfer
N- List of game translations that were released recently
R- Rather brief "review" of Tomb Raider Underworld
N- European VC releases. Yay, Secret of Mana!!


F- Fox owns rights to a Watchmen movie. Boo...
M- Insane Ian got 3rd place in some contest with this WoW song. Not bad
F- <3 Wallace and Gromit, and must see this
A- Same sketch that Krow linked to (below), but the link actually works


R- Sounds like Freefall got 12 games for Christmas... Cunt...
R- Another Christmas haul. Yay Batman animated series! <3
L- Failure on the GameTrailers forums
R- Yet another Christmas haul. Join us on FNF for TF2! :D
L- I'm a Canadian Dtoider! Gimme my present now damnit!
R- Christmas wishes, as only BigPoppaGamer can
V- Followup to the fail announcement post. Stream of a few good movies
C- Conspiracy theories and lack of avatars abound!


F- Apparently bad grammar and insults don't make people want to watch movies with you
S- Meh, video wasn't good when it was first released. Also, lolz for thinking the iPhone is a gaming system
F- If there was a Fail of the Day, this'd be it. Just the Digg link is enough to clinch it. Fuck Digg
S- I've never seen that before, but Hamza says they've always been there so I won't argue
F- Krow shows us why you apparently need to put a title in your cblog. Can't even link to the entry so just linking to their profile. Shame, as it's a nice sketch
F- Giant thread in the forums for just this thing buddy, but amazingly the community wasn't very harsh on them

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!
