LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2/1/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

Let me just say, that today was an absolutely crazy day to do the recaps, thanks to all the "10 things you don't know about me" blogs that everyone wrote. I guess I can't really complain though, seeing as how I brought this upon myself. What can I say, I'm a gluten for punishment. I was originally going to list all of them in this recap, but there were just so many that I decided to create a separate recap. You can check the entire list out here.

One thing that a day like today helps me realize, is how awesome the Destructoid community really is. It also makes me realize how badly I want to go to PAX '09 to finally meet you all for the first time. I was thinking I could tag along with Yojimbo, since we would both be flying out of the same airport in Raleigh, NC. I haven't discussed this with him yet though. What do you say Yojimbo? Would you be up for some company on the trip? I promise to take all the tequila shots you want me to take, which I can only imagine will be a ton.

Well ... let's get on with today's recaps shall we ...

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!
