LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 5/25/10 + Pendeltonisms

   0


A bit of a crazy today. Moved out of my last college apartment to finally get all my shit home (read: parentís house). Almost fully set up with all my cool shit in my room. Next week Iíll have pics of my new set-up, either up here or in a cblog (whenever the fuck I get around to making those again). This is, in fact, the first thing Iíve written at my new work station! Be proud, recap: youíre making history right now!

Alright, enough talking to inanimateÖobjects (how do you classify a cblog?), letís get to the Ďcaps, as the kids call Ďem nowadays.



*- Om Nom On Souls, while suffering from writerís block, still produced this great blog about game characters.

*- Taking the place of Rev Anthonyís Monthly Musings, the community has taken it upon themselves to keep the topics coming. This monthís: how games are associated with our families.

*- So hereís a new series devoted to interviewing Cblog celebs. This week: Occams electric toothbrush!

*- Results and videos from the FI: Mark of The Wolves Cblog Tournament.

*- Soon to be the top item on everyoneís Christmas list, The Modurn Warfairz 2 Limited Edition Xbox 360.

*- Topsauced only to shed light on the craziest Tumblr Iíve ever seen: Can Mario Fuck It?

*- Stevil gives us another incredible Gamer Obscura about the Police Quest series.

*- Though youíve probably already bought it if you really wanted to, hereís a wonderful review of GTA4: Episodes from Liberty City.

*- Though I wholeheartedly disagree with the man, BenelliM4 still put out a great piece about why he hates Portal.

*- You had me at the first image: check out this great write-up about the new shmup Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype.

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!
