LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 3/15/09 + SilverDragonisms

So 2009 has been a year filled with drama in the Dtoid community, drama perpetuated by the idea of the "old" dtoid community vs. the "new" dtoid community. Today was apparently another chapter in the ongoing story of this struggle that just doesn't want to go away. I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm pretty sick of all the drama at this point. I'm sick of this whole idea of the "new" community vs. the "old" community, and how the new community is ruining what used to be a great site. I'm sick of everyone acting like children.

Everyone needs to get it through their heads that things do change. Nothing in life is constant, especially not something as chaotic as the internet. It is very true that change has come to Destructoid, but for the most part the only change I have seen is good change. Instead of embracing this change, we seem to be trying to rip Dtoid apart from the inside out because we can't deal with this change. Well it's time that we all get over ourselves and learn that Dtoid isn't about anyone of us as individuals, but about all of us as a community made up of extraordinary people. We need to get past this "new" vs. "old" bullshit and come together to make Dtoid the best it's ever been. If you can't do that, if you can't get past that, then you don't really belong here.

Ok ... I've said my peace ... now on with the Cblog 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!
