LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2/21/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

Welcome to another exciting Saturday recap here at Destructoid. I'm your host, SilverDragon, and today I will be taking you on your tour of the day's cblogs. Before we begin I would ask that you please buckle your safety belts, and please put all tray tables, seats, and video game controllers in their up and locked position. Please not that there is no smoking or flash photography allowed on this tour, but drinking of strong alcoholic beverages is strongly recommended. We hope you enjoy your tour. Thank you for choosing the Cblog Recaps.

Before we begin our tour, I thought you might like to know what you host, that being me, has been up to. Well I've spent the last week beating the first 15 bosses of Shadow of the Colossus. By this time tomorrow I hope to have beat the final boss and moved on to one of the other many games I have to play. All I have to say is this game was absolutely incredible, and I can't believe it took me this long to finally get around to playing it.

Now onto the recaps ...

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!
